Not back yet!

Sorry I've been quiet - still busily trying to finish my project report but I've taken a few days off. My mate Roland came down from Manchester and we spent the weekend chilling and talking rubbish about cooking and growing up and such like - we were at school together so long ago that it was in black and white. I had the children on Sunday so we took a picnic to the final cricket game of the season (a draw) and as Roland hasn't seen the sea for a few years we had coffee in a number of coastal spots including the newest bit of England, a lovely spot overlooking beautiful white cliffs, a little place on the beach at Margate, The Bandstand in Herne Bay (which was mentioned in the Gundrain on Saturday while we were there! Roland doesn't drink but we managed a couple of evenings in The Mermaid too.

More work to do so I'll still be in "Silent running" mode but I'd like to point out that this weekend sees the 35th anniversary of.............

Missing you lots, its very quiet :-)

Hendrix died 18th Sept 1970, so I guess we're going to need to think again. It better hadn't be Jonathan Livingston Seagull....

Blimey! Psycho gets Manager of the Month, and then what happens? It's a curse, I tell you!

Mea culpa - I heard on the radio that it was this coming weekend and I didn't check the dates. They were talking to the latest guy to write a book but this one has interviewed two of Jimi's surviving siblings, people not previously mentioned.

Yes Rob - the curse of MOTM! I listened to the game last night - strangely compelling, but I had a bad feeling from the start and it all came to pass.
