On hitting milestones.

August 13, 2015

The weekend of the Coast to Coast has arrived. This is not a notice that people owe me sponsorship money, although feel free to donate cash if you feel it’s worth helping me over the massive hills we’ll be tackling in the next few days.

This is a very brief reflection on the size of the hills we’ll be tackling and the inherent risks. I’m not particularly fit, although I’m now more confident I can complete the challenge than I was six months ago. I’m not particularly awake. Driving rain and lower temperatures should fix that fairly sharpish.

Mostly though I’m just apprehensive. It’s a huge challenge. My next blog post will most likely be a review of the weekend. It will also be the three hundredth post on this blog. That’s also something of a milestone. Not that any of this site is worth reading just for the quality of the language or flow of prose, but I’ve been blogging for the better part of six years and I’ve got here the only way possible – perseverance to continue writing and posting.

Which is exactly how I’ll have to take these hills – sit on my bike and turn the pedals while the top of the hill gets closer.

Blues in a Bandstand

July 22, 2013

I went to the Churckery Festival gig yesterday at the Walsall Arboretum Bandstand. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and was happy to be in a place where my boys could come along and listen too. We even saw half of the Grey Goose Blues Band set. Being able to name the members and say I’d played with them was very cool. Read the rest of this entry »


Smarten up, my Dad’s reading this

June 11, 2013

My blog is connected to my Twitter account, to which I have granted WordPress access. It’s a simple way to announce new posts and garner interest from a wider audience, and it’s a simple matter for my followers to retweet the annoucnement. By this simple method of onward promotion, traffic has been generated for posts about forthcoming Walsall Social Media Surgery dates, and singing carols in pubs at Christmas.

Shouting over the fence.

I’m inspired tonight to blog on the subject of arguments.
