Nothing to do with boats...

(although no boats at the Brentford moorings have moved since I arrived on Weds night. I'm sitting on the end as approved by the BW staff, but still a little close to the pump out point, and of course I worry about what passing boaters might think of me).

The fabled 'end times' must surely be upon us - not only did the teatime local radio show as featured in The Archers choose 'Love Will Tear us Apart' as suitable driving music (although Clarrie did say 'this song's depressing, turn it down') but now The Times, well known paper of choice of Indie Kids (possibly now, apparently), are not only giving away a Joy Division album next week, but also my favourite New Order CD 'Power Corruption and Lies'. I think the point is that these are records from more than twenty years ago, and I do need to adjust my angle of view - perhaps I should be reading The Times at times other than when I find it on a train seat, who knows.

I'm fascinated to know how long some of the older Times readers listen to these CDs for...

Well I'm over 60 and if I hadn't already got the "Love" album they are giving away today I would be queuing up for it.

We've been enjoying (enviously) following your journey. See you back at HLY soon.

ah, but to be fair that was released fifteen years earlier than PCL... ;-)

Was going to be coming back Sun, but I've just found out about a 25 yr reunion for the Ceildh band I was in back in Cumbria at the weekend, so it'll probably be a week on Tues now, unless I do it tomorrow...

Can I just say, I'm shocked and appalled by the siting of your boat young man!
Some lovely journey write-ups here, thanks Simon.

Do you think it's despicable enough behaviour to be featured in Narrowmind World, then? ;-)

Ha - not quite! You're missing the necessary blue tarpaulin. But hey, I think we should make it our aim, to get featured (in a baaad way) in Narrowmind world. Think I'll get the ball rolling by hanging out some washing..
