Well, I bought some more of that wine today as there was still some left and it turned out to be very nice.
It is nice to relax in the evenings and its still too cold for beer though; and anyway, its not so ‘warming’. Barbara and Cat appear to be ‘arguing’ over on the relies, so think I’ll just stay here – its safer! But whatever Cat thinks, its very kind of Barbara to offer to write me a review here. When she’s done it, I’ll probably ‘filch’ it and put it up as part of a main Blog here, but obviously, I’ll ask her first. Flossie’s also said she’ll write something about the book and I’d like to do the same with her when she’s finished it – though obviously ask her permission first as well.
You can’t really blame me. The book is important to me which is why I took about 18 long months writing it. I think people should be allowed their honest opinions as opposed to these just getting ‘hidden away’ in the replies. Quite apart from that, it’ll help to shorten my input and probably keep people happy at the same time! Anyway, that should prove to you all I don’t – or won’t – cut or edit replies. Whatever their opinions are – ‘good’ or ‘bad’ – they will be allowed.
In fact, do you know, I’ve never really had to edit anything here. Well, tell a lie. Only once. And that was when that Cat put up some remarks about ‘Catholic schoolgirls’! Even then, I left up most of the unruly creature’s post, but just left out a couple of ‘offending’ – or potentially offending – lines. That was over a year ago, admittedly, but its why I have to watch him so closely. Oh yes! He did it yet again by giving a link which I did not check. It was to a picture of Barbara and the Yorkshire dumpling standing on some bridge. First I knew of it was when I got a phone call saying “That’s not your copyright, you’d best remove it”! Well, I did. But that wretched creature certainly has to be watched!
So what’s news? Well, I’m giving a Talk near Brighton next month (I mean May) with the book as its theme. So that should be good. Its only a hour on the train and I’m being picked up from the station. It’ll probably take the best part of an hour to get to Victoria which will be half the journey time. And then of course, I have to get back. It is in the evening, but there will still be plenty of time to get back. ‘Plenty of time’ is what I always prefer. I just hate rushing things! I’ll tell you about that afterwards. Another guy has asked to interview me before 6th April for a magazine project. I told him he could come here as that would be far easier. I’ll tell you about that afterwards as well. Or refer you to the publication so you can just go out and buy it.
What else? I’ve agreed to do some filming one day this coming week for another separate project. But again, that’s indoors here again so minimum of inconvenience. Been promised a DVD copy of it with permission to use after their showing. So all said and done, the material is mounting up. Have to start charging an admission fee for people to watch all this stuff! I would never do that in reality but I could sure make a tidy sum!
So anyway everyone, that’s today’s Blog. Back to the other writing and maybe just one more glass of that lovely wine! Give me a call tomorrow evening K as we arranged. Suppose I’d better have a quick look in at the replies after just to make sure that Cat’s behaving!
For the moment though, David
