Floored By Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)
In the mid eighties I was living in Leyland and working in Bradford and driving to and from work every day , 140 mile round trip.
At Terrapin Station with The Grateful Dead
At some point in my listening I started following a program hosted by Sheridan Morley., who was a “quality” critic on the BBC. This must have been late 1970s early 1980s.
To Be Loved
It is a wonderful feeling to love someone , but it is an ever more incredible feeling to be loved in return. I always loved The Teddy Bears “To Know Him Is To Love Him” , but I needed another version and had forgotten Dave Bromberg had adapted it as “To Know Her Is To Love Her”.

Five Funny Facebook Friends
Well actually it’s six but fancied a fairly alliterative title. These are all comedians I have seen at the Stand in Newcastle (and other places) and to be quite honest , I enjoy watching them a lot more than most of the people you see on television, but maybe it's because they actually talk to me. I am just gonna say a little about them and where I first saw them.
A View From A Long Beach
Another poem , a tribute to my wonderful Muse , who I was with last night and most of today chatting about this and that. Although I have used the song before , the beautiful “Can’t Get It Out of My Head” from “El Dorado” by the Electric Light Orchestra is perfect for this.

The Fourth Best Friend
This week and for the last few weeks I have been feeling awfully down but unable to talk about it. I have written about my insecurity on here before and know that many people feel the same way.
