My friend Pat Shearing paid a whirlwind overnight visit to view properties in Weymouth in the hope of settling here in the future. Coinciding with her arrival, was an e-mail from Janet Read informing me of the information below.
Olympic Boat Arrives in Weymouth for Sailing Event
JUMPIN' JIMMY THUNDER 'Rocker Supreme'Mr Thunder has brought much joy to untold numbers of people across this Borough and many others. Great to see you today Jimmy!
The old Rocker wore his hair too long,
wore his trouser cuffs too tight.
Unfashionable to the end --- drank his ale too light.
Death's Head belt buckle --- yesterday's dreams ---
the transport caf' prophet of doom.
Ringing no change in his double-sewn seams
in his post-war-babe gloom. Now he's too old etc....
Otherwise it has been a quiet day on the ranch working on my next adventure, trying to get Elizium - Fields of the Nephilim onto my i-Pod and catching up with a few mates. To that end I'll need once again to visit the archive to bring you 'half a dozen' Birds of the World:-
ADELIE PENGUIN - Antarctica
LACRIMOSE MOUNTAIN TANAGER - Colombia
LEMON-BELLIED FLYCATCHER - Australia
and finally from Dave Harris, via brother Paul, perched in a Grandstand position during yesterday's most memorable OLYMPIC ROAD TIME TRIAL CYCLING EVENT these astonishing 'close-ups' of not only
Bradley Wiggins - Team GB, Gold Medallist, Olympic Champion and UK Sports Personality of the Year in Waiting?
Congratulations to all Competitors and a big Thank You to Dave Harris
