  • 🤔

    Is the Tower of Pisa a listed building?

  • Rant of the day

    What was Cummings thinking? Subsequently, what was Johnson thinking?

    This isn’t about saving face, it’s about saving the message that is about saving lives.

    I’m not one for schadenfreude (well, not for the most part!) but Cummings must repent, reflect, and reboot.

    …Preferably with an ankle tag if he resurfaces before the lockdown rules change…

    It will be interesting to see how this one plays out… (Update the following Tue: As expected!)

  • Morning thoughts

    News this morning:-

    Timeout, err, Timein London has a wide range of day trips by foot and on bike that adhere to lockdown guidance. 🤔 Now only if we could find a loo (or feel less guilty about watering the plants… 😏)

    Trump’s pulling out of the Open Skies treaty. 🤔 Not a fan of the man but sensible if not all parties play ball. Hope for a reboot during the 18 months consultation period.

    The George, Royal Vauxhall Tavern and many other music, social and entertainment venues are crowdfunding to stay afloat. Time to vote with your cash on who you’d still like see around in a few months time. 🤔 Will £5 pints still be a thing though? Or will we get mates rates if we lend a hand?

  • Meet Snowie!
  • Oh, hey! It’s been a while since we spoke!

    I’ve been busy reinstating my online muse. When I find my last backup of my blog, this post will disappear and my thoughts of the past few decades will take its place. Some may even agree that its an improvement 😉
