Snowfall,pitfall and birds

Birds of a feather flock together. This is mostly true though as far as I know birds of prey don't flock together.This is a reflection. I reflect. I think. I ponder. If you are so inclined your victim is not a communal offering. It is someone you pick out for yourself. Though the victim may be a group- you, the individual, pick it-the group- out to suit/match your invention.Being a victim means being subject to abuse. You are the prey- food for...

Gambling

I've decided I need to win some money. Soo I am going to start gambling- on a small scale- once a week perhaps- once every 10 days when I go to town.£5 a go and I might win a million, maybe more. One million ought to do it for a while- a long while. I wonder whether I will get addicted?

Danish politics

Having dabbled a bit in politics and then stepping off this treadmill I am comforted by the fact that our Prime Minister's ratings are going up- she can't beat the right yet but she's getting there. This guy from the far right Simon Emil A- let's just call him that -doesn't like poor people. I don't mind because he is not going to get much of a say in parliament. He'll be allowed , by the government, to vote for things/bills so the Gov. can get...

The Fear

A four part series on Channel 4 that ended last night. Best thing I've seen on TV for a very long time. A Brighton gangster is in the early stages of dementia with fatal consequence for him and his family. Peter Mullan plays Richie Bennett brilliantly and the way that his condition overtakes him is breathtaking. A must see.

The Fear Channel 4. 10pm

Richie Cottan's new thriller. The double spread advertisement in The Observer had Peter Mullan, who plays Richie Beckett, in a triangle with his two sons behind him, against a backdrop of a pier with Fear in red lights. It reads ‘the criminal mind is a fragile thing’. Well it is if you’ve got Alzheimer’s, or dementia or you’re just fragile with a criminal mind. Peter Mullan playing a gangster, whether on a horse or in the street, is none of...

First day of new job 27.11.2012

5.30am get out of bed. 6.45 walk to town, catch train to Cannock at 7.15. Arrive at Cannock rail station 7.45, walk maybe three miles to Cannock office of employer, though I was told during my induction that I would be picked up from Walsall (had to get there early to find the damned place). 9.30 two minibuses leave for Dunstable. 11.50 arrive at the store in Dunstable where the stocktaking was being done. 1pm audit begins. 12.30 am (...

Cheltenham

Looking forward to todays racing from Cheltenham. Love to see Hunts Ball win the Paddy Power Gold Cup today, but think Grand Crus might just be too good for the rest! Can't wait for the festival in March...

Gay to Straight: Stacey Dooley in the USA. BBC 3, 9pm

I’m getting in my heterosexual credentials right away. Stacey Dooley is super-hot. As for the girl that ‘reads’ BBC 3 new. She’s supernova. I know this is a sign that I’m secretly gay, because if you keep banging on about how hetero you are it’s a sign that you’re really homo. But according to gay conversion therapy there isn’t really such a thing as homosexuality. There is same sex preference, but gee whiz, that can be changed. It’s a...

Just testing.. Sorry

Terry Callier

No idea how this works but thought I'd try it today. Someone I've known for many years passed away today. Terry Callier. I knew him only through his music, although I saw him a number of times at the jazz Cafe and he came over and spent some time with us, I didn't really "know" him. His music inspired me and his attitude to life was amazing. I am, as I'm writing this listening to a track from Timepeace and drinking Malt whisky. He was a true...
