My feet have not touched tohe ground much since last week! It was my Birthday weekend. Came in from playing a gig in Leeds on Friday (at Velvet) and accidentally came into the front room just as Eirene was about to wrap my pressy… A Carrom board! (what is carrom?) What a great game that is. Played it first around… Read more →
It’s… Really looking forward to seeing what osymyso has in store. Not much news to report. Had a wander round Harrogate College today – quite strange – it’s years since I’ve been in that place. Still smells the same. Think I’m off through to ‘Atrium’ in Leeds tonight with DJ Dharma.
Thanks to Chris for sending this link in – some good pictures of the henge that I was babbling on about last week…The Modern Antiquarian | Thornborough Henge Central If you haven’t already done so, sign the petition!
What a cracking gig it was last night. First off – Sting didn’t turn up as I suspected, he’s sent a photo and some wordage to support the event. A classic illustration of how Harrogate’s Chinese whisper mill works. The event was in support of the Leonard Peltier Native Americans Fund. What a top gig! both! I played with Dalmatian… Read more →

Friday fun… You go to this site and pretend to be either a dictator or a sit-com character. It asks you a load of yes/no questions and then guesses. I was amazed that they guessed I was BA form the A TEAM. Guess the Dictator or Sit-Com Character: I still ain’t gettin on no airplain foo. grr.
Just launched a micro site for FIRE. Finished reading Memoirs of a Geisha – good book. Fascinating detail into 1930’s and 40’s Japan. Right – not much more happening apart form work at the moment…
It feels like Autumn is properly kicking in at the moment – today was bright but cold and very windy. Kiting season. Speaking of kites, had a bit of flying at the weekend. We went camping out in the forest at a really nice little campsite with a load of friends to celebrate Tinanaa’s birthday. Spiers House in the North… Read more →
Thornborough Henge.. Multimap.com Yesterday afternoon we took a drive up to Thornborough Henge, after I recieved an email telling me that Tarmac are disrupting the area and intend stepping up their on open face quarry activity – the effect being that the whole area will be flooded. I wasn’t very happy about hearing this – Here is the info I… Read more →
Just dropped Felix off at school. Strange seeing all the ‘new’ mums and dads there letting their little one fly the nest for the first time. It’s nearly a year since Felix’s first day at school when we were one of those ‘new’ parents. Big boy now.
Just got in from a superb weekend camping. Yesterday the weather was ‘so-so’ but today, it was sunny and hot. A little patch that we know about down the river Wharfe near Grassington was home to us and our friends and our vans for a the weekend. It’s an idyllic spot – one reason is the places natural beauty, the… Read more →
Good evening the world. Today the internet is 35 years old; I wonder what it will be like in another 35 years. I thought I would do an update on where Matt the kids and I did for the rest of our time in Ireland. Be warned I am still typing with a poorly wrist so I shall do my… Read more →
