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!

I love this from the wonderfully talented Joyce Grenfell and the piece has very powerful sentimental associations, the details of which I am unable to share with you.

Until the next time

Amis has a point - for the curmudgeons, of which he was one.

One must keep trying I suppose.
