Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

Snail Mail

Whilst there are those who would like to replace "Fast Food" with "Slow Food" congratulations are due to those at Bournemouth University who have developed the Snail Mail project, a most original idea in that it is simultaneously the blending of modern electronics with real snails to bring a service that might help slow the hectic pace of today's world...

The official launch took place yesterday and you can read all about the project at Boredomresearch's Realsnailmail website here and better still, you can send messages via the service, preferably I think non-time-critical ones! (I already have) since the Real Snail Mail blog reports that there is a backlog of 6000 messages. Fortunately the "workforce" of delivery agents now numbers 8.

Until the next time
