Many thanks to our great friend (and high-minded painter) Andy Baird, who both conceived and jump started this attempt to contemporaneously record at least some of the eventings of one move abroad. Regarding content, the narrower column on the left is the supposedly more timeless and reference stuff; ongoing entries are in the larger-width column on the right of the script below - following the (red)


by-line below. The plan is for these at least to be augmented over time.

It should also follow, therefore, that the most recently added post will always be at the top of this right-hand column; so if you want to get a flavour from earlier times, scroll and start NEARER TO or EVEN AT THE BOTTOM (only, please, please if you chose this option, allow yourself a series of snack-breaks; it can be repetitive, and boredom is guaranteed to increase with intensity of effort!)- but ANY comments are not only also welcomed ->but positively encouraged

Remember this folks ......

May Day 2010

 .... presumably you`re likely to be experiencing wind and rain, but WE have already had a 2-week spell, and counting, where it`s been warm and dry enough to re-engage with life. Gordon the Git has been talking about the one million Brits who have LEFT the UK, as a justification for his letting one plus million immigrants IN - rather missing the point that, without exit controls (like for instance identification, or even counts), he can`t possibly know how many people have actually scarpered, or why, let alone what their original designation was. Nor can he know -ergo discount- the very real possibility that very large numbers may have left precisely in order to escape his UK and start to enjoy themselves again. Not that we care ......... we at least are out of it**.
<< ** "it" equalling -and not necessarily gloatingly, being the U.K. , it/YOUR Government, YOUR mess, YOUR shit .....>>. But then I can be a tad cynical ......
