I don’t know about you but I’m busy putting up sandbags and barbed wire around the hobbit house here on Trinity Mead. I’m getting ready for the UK’S July 4th Independence Day er…celebrations. Or as I call it, A day to remember. July 4th VV day. (Victory over Virus Day). Why? I apologise for being aContinue reading A day to remember. July 4th VV day. (Victory over Virus Day)
This is a very difficult piece to write and an awkward question to have to ask. Especially as I see myself as a ‘live and let live’ type of person. A person who because of his own life experience, thinks that in all his dealings with his fellow human beings, he is fair and non-judgemental.Continue reading A Resurgence of the Thick?

I’mContinue reading Why isn’t the Royal Shakespeare Theatre putting on theatre?

Trinity Mead, Stratford upon Avon is, in my opinion a pleasant enough place to live. All human life is here. From the theatre lover to the drug dealer. From the piss-head to the pensioner. In line with a lot of ‘recent-builds’ it has nooks and crannies. By which I mean there are segments of theContinue reading Trinity Mead, Stratford upon Avon.
