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!

A Little More on The Late Paul

After an interval of 13 months, someone wrote a message in my "chat box"; his name, Mr Lonely.

Mr Lonely lives in Malaysia and posts in English; whilst some readers might find his blog "A Growing Teenager Diary," self-indulgent - doesn't this apply to all or at least, nearly all, blogs?

In one of his posts he covers the subject of Paul the Octopus and includes a splendid illustration of a suggested memorial. It is true of course that since Paul was resident in Germany, one would expect his stone to carry a German epitaph rather than an English one!

"Miss Cleo"? Shurely shome mistake?

Until the next time
