No need to be a weather forecaster to know its turned cold again. I never have taken to the cold; and living in a house that is not properly insulated doesn’t exactly help.
Had two emails last night asking about my Court appearance I mentioned yesterday (sorry Thursday). It was NOT a criminal action, it was CIVIL, and brought by myself. I can not discuss it here due to sub-judiacy, except to say that it was only one preliminary Hearing (albeit an important one) in what has been a series of many. But the main point is I have NOT been charged with anything, neither is anyone taking any action against myself; it is the other way around. I wish people would listen to what I say sometimes! And for “Romany”, no charges were ‘dropped’ against myself, for the simple reason none were ever brought in the first place! I really don’t know where you’ve been getting your information old fella (sorry, you might be young) but it sure as hell (and that’s an appropriate word!) is not accurate.
I think you might be confusing this issue with another one when some irate female was promising me on the Internet that that I would ‘end up in jail’ by the ‘end of next year’ (which is this year now). Interestingly, she never spelled out exactly why, but I suppose we can just put that down to wishful thinking on the part of some ‘jilted’ lady!
Oh! Why do I seem to have this effect on females sometimes?! Seriously, it has been with me for over half my life! Sometimes one or two of these apparently ‘fall in love with me’ then turn into ‘raging demons’ just because I cannot fulfil their promises, when I had never made any in the first place! It doesn’t bother me that much, but it is just a nuisance when people can’t read into such ravings sometimes, and I am left to answer misguided assumptions – such as above.
So, no. I am not on the ‘wrong side of the law! On the wrong side of one or two isolated people maybe – but that is entirely different!
Having clarified that (again!), allow me to revert to more sane issues.
As some of you may have noticed by my brief exchanges with Craig, I will be giving another paranormal related Talk in London in May. I do not intend to put up advance details here (although you might well see them on the other peoples’ Website not so long off) but if anybody wants to come along, just email my main Website at:
[email protected] [Email address no longer in use ~ Ed.] and we will send you details. I am not sure of the admission fee but if I remember rightly it is £4 which includes a free glass of wine, and obviously the programme. And to save anybody asking, ‘yes’ I am getting paid for it, but its not much. I really don’t do these things for money believe it or not, but because its part of my work as an author. Basically, as long as I get my expenses covered and I am not out of pocket, I am happy. If there’s a little on top, so much the better! (And you can buy me a drink again Craig, and don’t forget to bring Laura!).
Well, I’ve got to go out soon as Gareth is coming tonight, and I just realised I don’t have enough wine. As some of you will know, yesterday was Candelas (to give it its old fashioned name which I prefer) and Gareth attended one of his Pagan meetings. I just hope they held it indoors, as it was freezing last night!
And ‘no’, I didn’t attend any such meetings. I’ve made clear on so many occasions I am no longer actively involved in Wicca, and feel I have risen above the need for ceremonial worship. Infinite Principle is available to one or the many, surely, and I just prefer to be on my own on such occasions. (I am obviously talking about the serious side of it and not the sensational nonsense reported by some newspapers. So don’t even bother Craig!).
Well, I shall be spared posting anything else until Monday, which is good really as it gives me more time to get back to my other writing. Gareth has got some more typing to do tonight as well – but he doesn’t know it yet!
For the moment,
