Bloggers Block Broken

I'd forgotten how exhausting looking after a twenty month old toddler is.

Or rather looking at his granny looking after him is...

I didn't have time to play on here much the past couple of days, but now the wee one is back hame, and I eagerly sat behind the keyboard to...sit and stare at it for an age.

Type a few words, then delete them.

Go and take the dogs for a walk, then sit and stare some more.

Then I saw the news about the lost papers of Ernest Hemingway.

Thanks to Senator James McGovern and the Government of Cuba, replica documents of his work and correspondence are available for research, including an alternate ending to "For Whom the Bell Tolls".

Hopefully this is the thin edge of the wedge which will lead to the American easing of sanctions against Cuba.
Is this an Obama dividend? Let's hope so, and wait for others.

Skinhead thug

I've been thinking about how we perceive ourselves, and others.

How we make a snap judgement of a person by the way they dress, speak or indeed the way they wear their hair.

Or beards AMW:-)

This picture is of me at your age.Enjoy your slap.

Q. What would you do to this face?

A. Not kiss it.

O, my dear maid, my Stella, when Shall this sick period close, And lead the solitary bard To his belov'd repose?
Robert Burns.

Well, here I am in the blogosphere.

Lets hope I can make a silk purse.
