August bank holiday weekend, day 12, no change! Anyway, it’s been the first reasonably nice day since I got back from Devon. So Bob and I decided that a ride out up the coast would be a good thing to do. But first I had to find all my stuff for the bike, this wouldn’t … More Starfish and Coffee
Why hasn’t it been thundering and lightening? As I sit here writing this missive, the sky’s have opened up and dumped a sea of rain down on my house! I can hear the beating of the drops against the WALLS! I’m pleased it waited until I got back in me house! It DID start spitting … More Sound of the drums Beatin’ in my heart The thunder of guns Tore me apart You’ve been –
Day 8 of my experiment set out between me and my Doc! (All is well) although I will say I’m noticing the intent crassness of local life in the north! Once again I have shuffled by a family of Greggs pasty eating (I thought the local councillor protested that no such people existed here) women, … More Saved her life, she nearly drowned, He showed off splashing around!!!
At last!!!!! Sunshine and no rainy day! Time to get Bob out. And out we went. Taking the cover off him this morning was refreshing to say the least. Four days and I haven’t been able to get on his back for even a minute. Either rain or hurricane winds have demolished my riding days. … More Up through the atmosphere, up where the air is clear

House, vehicle now bank account. I have tried for ages to stay off it, but I suppose I could be found … More Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes!
Today was going to be filled with lots of things. Some good, others essential, but most just as day fillers really. My whole intent was to get out of bed, do some meditation, have some breakfast and go out to play (nothing wrong with that)……….BUT, as always “The best laid plans never survive the first … More Standing at the door of the pink flamingo crying in the rain!
Well, that was a week away. A week of relaxing, breathing, being and doing. A week that took me and me mate ‘Bob’, (the ninja is called Bob now) on a 700 mile round trip to the wilds of Devon (North AND South), through Lancashire, back through Wiltshire, Hampshire then lancs again, up to Northumberland. … More Saltwater wells in my eyes
Today was Thursday, yes it was Thursday. A discussion broke out after a coffee in a local pub involving four adults! Not a child and a cat!!!! Four adults, not one of them knowing for sure what the day was. A consensus of opinion concluded that it MUST be Thursday, so that was that. God … More I’ve travelled the world and the seven seas, everybody’s looking for something.
