Grim news coming in from Barcelona

by NobblySan

The world is indeed descending into madness.

I’m not from London, so shouldn’t really care, but . . .

by NobblySan

. . . this is the best bit of news that I’ve heard for a while.

When we have people sleeping rough on our streets and relying on food banks, I find the idea of a vanity project of this magnitude Рthat would benefit only a handful of people in one city in  one corner of the country Рto be little short of obscene.

Hats off to Sadiq Khan for standing up for what is right and good, and Piss off to his predecessor for being a clueless privileged twat of the highest order.

Cue the little baldy-headed bloke and the sax

by NobblySan

I was planning a walk with some friends this morning, and found this wonderful name for a hill on the route.

I thought he was dead.

Study the map to see what I’m on about.

Doctor, I think there’s something in my eye.

Bloody hell.

These people walk among us.

They probably can’t see us, but they walk among us.

Bollocks to technology

by NobblySan

Technology for the sake of it can be a bit of a bummer.

Especially if you have a speech impediment.

Camping it up

by NobblySan

Last weekend, Mrs N, the beasties and I were camping with a group of friends in Hawes in Wensleydale. That’s Yorkshire for them wot don’t know.

Ee – it were reet grand!

On Saturday we went for a walk that took in a couple of pubs, and in memory of Peter Sallis, I’d like to say “Cracking weather, Grommit!”

Photos here.

The sign says it all

by NobblySan

Taken on my way to work this morning.

There is so much shit in this world, but my hope is that the good in people shines through, as it appears to be doing in the form of the sort of community spirit shown by the people of Manchester.

Spot the difference

by NobblySan

One is a faintly ludicrous yet dangerous despot, surrounded by adoring acolytes, and the other is . . . . .

I don’t normally ‘do’ Trump posts, but today’s news about the fool really got under my skin.

He can fuck about with healthcare, taxes and shit in the country that elected him for ever and a day as far as I care, but screwing up the whole fucking world just because he can, leaves me somewhat pissed off.
