A Post About ME


I started off by writing a major told-you-so post about #Trump and #Elections2016. Wanna read what I wrote? Head over to the bottom of this post. I'll put it there in italics. Not that it matters. We can only look ahead now. No use, as no one in my family used to say, whining because… Continue reading A Post About ME

Shameless Flamboyance!


I didn't see it coming. It was all coming along so well. It came as a bit of shock actually. But let me back track a bit and provide some backing track to the song of my life over the  past few months. I used to write this blog fairly regularly. When I first started… Continue reading Shameless Flamboyance!

Why I talk to myself


I updated my blog recently. I don't know that you noticed, so I am taking the logical way out and announcing it. So you know. Which you won't if you don't read my blog. But you are, because you're here. You are here, right? I'm not just talking to myself? I do that a lot,… Continue reading Why I talk to myself

Stocktaking

I spent many a time walking around in 38c weather in sunny and shadeless factories, with a tape measure and a piece of chalk,… Continue reading Stocktaking

How to write a story


It’s been a long standing ambition of mine to write a novel, or a story of some kind, put it in a book and have it published. I actually started writing a book in 2010 or 2011. After a few hundred words were written I began to wonder what it was I was really doing.… Continue reading How to write a story

Daniels come to judgement!


We're a judgemental lot, we are. I'm no sociologist, and far too lazy to research it, but it may be that making judgements is at the root of homo sapien's instinct for survival. In the modern era, with the interweb weaving it's magical tendrils all around us and enabling snappy judgements, we are more enmeshed… Continue reading Daniels come to judgement!

The Second Irregular SloWord Awards


OK, 2015 has now been consigned to history. 2016 shall prove historic, too. For the US, which means, of course, the World. In 2016, I expect either a pant-wearing lady President ( I'm getting the vapours just thinking about it...) or another republican chump, this time one without a name called Bush, but with hair… Continue reading The Second Irregular SloWord Awards

5 Great Passages


Well, 2015 is almost over and it is time to take a look back. I decided to dig through and collect some quotes. The best of the best. From this blog, of course. Didn't you know? I'm modest to a fault. It's probably my greatest virtue, modesty is. uh... one other thing... I may not… Continue reading 5 Great Passages
