Garden & The Environment

Well; my dear reader, I am. I hope you are too. There seems to be a lot of bugs going about. Is it Christmas yet? I am in the process of creating an online magazine for those who like design, or look at design, or have designs on design. A foray. Below is a sneak […]

Well, my dear reader, you may have noticed a few changes to the website. I decided what I actually had here was a bit more magazine inspired rather than a farty old blog. So I re-branded as a ‘Blogazine’©. Yes, I know, the word ‘blogazine’©, doesn’t appear in the OED (what is the translation software […]

world cup shame

Well my dear reader, I find myself sitting in front of a computer assessing my journey thus far on this, the fair planet Earth. It is an interesting path. Not necessarily one that I have chosen, or perhaps even would have chosen some years ago, but nonetheless an enjoyable one. I definitely enjoy gardening and […]

My dear reader, For some strange reason I have been studying closely the economic ideas of the various political parties in the UK. I am not altogether sure why. It bores me when you get into the finer details. But I am fascinated none the less. From what I can tell – and I am […]

West Wales

My dearest of dear friends, I have just returned from Wales. A beautiful place of interesting history. A set of unified Kingdoms, fiefdoms, principalities, counties, Roman palatinate, Celtic boroughs…variously attacked and claimed by many Kings, Princes, Lords, Earls and Dukes, Emperors… Beautiful. Independent. Verdant. Whilst there I made a rather startling realisation. If the Gods […]

They also said, we have to not only reduce our carbon emissions BUT also now start to remove it from the air to avert catastrophe. Which is by my reckoning like […]

Forsythia

I must admit to you, my dear reader, that I am somewhat enjoying this ‘spring’. As we approach its final month and of course celebrate Witches Night or ‘Walpurgis’ on the 30th of April, I am looking forward to all the beauty yet to come. Of course there are many out there who declare that […]

I am giving a talk in Horsham this very week, my dear,dear reader. Feel free to come along if you fancy heckling me (I deserve it having once heckled Al Murray at his very first gig.)

My dear reader, How nice to know you are here. You’ve made it through those dark days without my witterings. No talk of insurrection this week, so all those nice people at GCHQ, NSA and all the other paranoid structures of state can rest easy. I am not intending on taking the Ukraine by force […]
