Rivers start to burn.

Preparing, once again, to gird my loins and whisk myself and the family over to the Sunny southwest for my, most excellent chum M's wedding.

Rather than risk hiring a car we've decided to go the public transport route - it will do the kids good to go on a train with people clinging to the roof, baskets of chickens, pigs roaming around, overflowing toilets and hard wooden seats. The train usually calms down after Reading, however.

and yeah, it's been a while. So if you're reading this, and I think I know who you are, well done. It will be the usual stream of wittterings written in poo on the walls of a padded cell.

OMG! Just one of my all time favourite science-fiction books turned into a movie.....IMDb Video: I Am Legend....nice one, hopefully.
Very quickly....the news is that the children, now full of sausages and ginger biscuits are happily wrestling on the sofa and communicating with each other in their strange third lanquage...but the really big news is (as I learnt from Vice magazine) is that the Cult have released a new album. Yeah, yeaaaaahhh. As Ian Asbury would say.

In a famous allegory, Tolkien compared the author of "Beowulf" to a man who, inheriting a field full of ancient stones, used them to build a tower.

Definition of Dangerous Wild Animals

Here's a link about the classification of dangerous animals, from Elmbridge County Council which they believe should be considered by DEFRA.., they've introduced an equation which is expressed as "ferocity x armament", which is very scientific. They must surely be taking the piss (in a most excellent way) when they give an example of "sloths or capybaras which, although equipped with big claws and large teeth, will never attack people unless they try to pick them up"... Definition of Dangerous Wild Animals: "ferocity".

Aside from that: I'm back, for the time being, but going slightly odd from paint fumes.

The skinny is that we're moving house...lock, stock and barrel, and children as well. As a hoarder of several years standing I have numerous bags of assorted filth, bed grit and chicken smeg to move. Lovely chubbly.

There's no immediate connection at the other end, which means this sadly neglected blog will become even more neglected for a while longer. Chop chop.

Note to self: shootings.

Launched the new website after putting in some serious hours over the last few weeks. The day of the launch was a 12 hour day but the launch itself was rather anti-climatic. just waiting to see if that link to 'Thai girls with big cocks' managed to remain undeleted in the html.

yawn. gosh, I seem to have soiled myself.
