I read with great interest your story and your replies to other comments and it got me thinking about your situation and those with the similar problems.

Now, I don't want to be-little autism by any means, but it looks to me like Aspergers...

I've been a bit rough lately and haven't followed ABC for a week

Posted on Fri, 09 Feb 2018

This morning I found this gem. This is so visual to me. I see everything in black and white, not because it's like an old movie or an early Ken Loach play of the week, but because it tells a story, or should that be the story, of mining...

Sorry to butt in Jack (I have been trying to keep up)

Posted on Sat, 23 Feb 2019

My Daughter was born in 1980 in the 'soft south' (Camberley Surrey) and I don't recall my wife having an ultrasound. When she went in labour all they had was sort of microphone thing they put on her tummy which amplified the baby's heart beat,...

Pity that the ghost of Franco still hovers over the peninsular. Bit of a worry really,

I hope the Spanish have more sense than the Hungarians and Poles though.

Never read Ginsberg, except excerpts from poems

Posted on Sun, 03 Feb 2019

I guess they didn't make an impression. However, I do think I should go back and visit him and Woolf and a few others if I'm going to have any chance of understanding SOC. It's been a long time since I read On the Road and now I can't find my...

Great stuff it's about time we had poems about this problem

Posted on Fri, 04 May 2018

I'm amazed at the lack of response to this important topic.
