Mum’s the word
Chrysanthemum florets of yellow and rusty red, too numerous to count, brighten my table. They curve like half canoes, catching all droplets, sliding them inward to nourish themselves and their community.
The Americanization of Kambili
In the bustling city of Chicago, where the skyline kisses the clouds, and the streets hum with the rhythm of a thousand stories, there lived a young woman named Kambili. Her roots traced back to Nigeria, a land of vibrant traditions and close-knit communities, but destiny had woven a unique tapestry for her—an American tale in the making.
The Article In Between
Let's see how much space I can fill up with unadulterated nonsense. The tree and frog both share a log, but antelopes don't follow.
Omar's Diary to 26th November 2023
What with the onset of the winter Man Servant and I have had plenty of time at the weekends to catch up with the Sunday newspapers. Sadly, I cannot claim that they are what used to be called “broadsheets” such as The Sunday Times and The Observer used to be. They have all converted to tabloid. Such a downgrade of quality.
A chef who travels the world to learn from different cuisines and cultures, and finds love along the way.

Little did I know, amidst the vibrant tapestry of flavors, I would discover not only the essence of extraordinary dishes but also the taste of unexpected love.

No Wine, No Light, No Happiness - vember
No Wine, No Light, No Happiness - vember Well, my fellow Vocalites, I’m still here. As a Vocal Plus member. Why? Because apparently Vocal likes me so much, they just won’t let me go! No, really – I went into my settings and thought I canceled the auto-renew. It seems by some twist of fate, the platform didn’t accept my cancellation as of October 30 and have renewed me for another year! That’s until October 30, 2024. I checked. It works now. When I contacted them yesterday, the bot Remy responded that they don’t do refunds. That wasn’t what I asked.
Omar's Diary to 31st October 2023
The Servants returned from a brief sojourn to somewhere called Abingdon on the River Thames in Oxfordshire. It was where William the Conqueror stayed for an Easter break in 1084 away from building castles, suppressing the locals and inextricably linking these islands to Europe, again.
Omar's Diary to 18th October 2023
On Saturday 14th October the Servants and I were able to catch some of the coverage of The Dewhurst meeting from Newmarket. What a race The Dewhurst Stakes turned out to be. It was only over seven furlongs but by the time the pack had entered the fifth the race was over. That was when City of Troy was eased into the front. A colt not normally suited to anything but good going lengthened with only the slightest of urgings from the jockey who didn't have to draw his whip let alone use it.
5,000... There are certain numbers that are important to us: 42, 666, Pi, Euler's constant, Halle Berry's measurements. There are numbers that we memorize and keep close to our thoughts: phone numbers, pin numbers, Halle Berry's measurements.
Omar's Diary to 7th October 23
Let me get some bad news out of the way. Last week I listed four selections from fifteen runners in the Prix d L’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp in Paris. I am afraid to admit, but never afraid of honesty, that none of them obliged. Litter tray method, pin sticking or even a serious and considered study of form, going, distance and direction of course brought us all up very short of expectations. Needless to say, Ticker has done very well out of the residents here at Omar Towers. I doubt we will see as much as a greetings card or, a pack of Dreamies from him during the annual festivities that start in about twelve weeks.
