Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 

It's also very rare!

But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...

Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub!
There were certainly a few characters around. 
Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!

There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!

The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them.
Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...
 I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be! 
Here's a video of them performing California from last night.



Bye for now.

Sorry you didn't have a good time. At least the kids were there with you.

I wrote a reply to this yesterday and blogger lost it, so I shall try again.

It was pretty noisy in that pub, wasn't it? Let's hope it won't be long before the band is playing to audiences who actually want to here them, rather than just happen to be in the same venue, although some people may have been more aware of the music than seems the case.

I know what you mean about having all the family together. I'm looking forward to this weekend, when we are all going out together.

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Top Of The World

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St.Austell for breakfast. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale i…
