When new cars TV holidays leave you empty

When Albert first renovated an old car - when he was still in his teens - he felt an immense sense of freedom. Even then insurance was a ripoff, so he only used it for late summer - July through September. The only experience that matched it for liberty was later, when he lived "off grid", as it were, in a caravan - no rent, no services, close to nature. Slowly, some would say inexorably, the

Lesson in manners whilst moving house

Clearly I don't understand sophisticated company (!): Recently, while helping someone move house, I had to ask the new owner if I could use her toilet. The new owners had arrived early ... "You mean the Baaathroom!" she tittered. I was puzzled, as you can probably tell. Never mind, when in Rome, do as the Romans do ... "Certainly madam," said I. "I prefer to use the lavatory, but if it

fiction - career choices on leaving school

Ivor and Paul were chatting in the barn, out of the (rather unusual) blazing sun, when Ivor's grandson arrived. Ivor made a big deal of greeting him, very warmly, and Paul raised an eyebrow. Alex looked up now and then and smiled, but mostly frowned, his gaze downcast. Ivor caught Paul's quizzical expression and gave the tiniest nod, which Paul had learned to interpret as "trust me, I’ll

Consciousness - The World in ones Head

Tibestian Book of the Undead, part 5 I think I was about 50 when I first realised that many people's world is almost entirely in their minds. I'd known for decades that people are complicated, very different .. weird. Including yours truly, of course. The first example I recall was when I'd spent many months rebuilding a barn, as well as having a full time job. I finished making the roof

Funny Fiction / Stories - Terry Pratchett

Witches Abroad - Terry Pratchett Hardback book in fair condition (perfect read, worn cover). The target of Terry Pratchett's choice for this story is the ubiquitous happy ending. A fairy godmother dies and the witches find themselves carrying out her last wishes (whilst trying to find the hidden magic wand). The magical wand is left, to the disgust of the other two, to Magrat, with

Wilt - Tom Sharpe

Tom Sharpe takes of the pee of university life, again, in a return to Porterhouse college, Cambridge. alt="Wilt - Tom Sharpe" image to follow - won't upload at the mo This is a funny book, and probably better relaxation that watching consumer media, like the TV. But there is no sense of insight into the psychology of the characters, and it doesn't appear to offer solutions to societies

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time - Mark Haddon

Also published as a play. The story begins with Christopher Boone, narrating the story in the first person, present tense, discovering a dead dog in his neighbours garden.  The dog has been impaled with a garden fork. Christopher has an unusual psychology - he can't tell lies, his psychology makes it difficult to filter what he says in terms of 'regular' social norms, and he likes mystery

So long, and thanks for all the fish - Douglas Adams

"The fourth book in the hitch-hiker trilogy (sic)." Inspired imaginative satire with a sci-fi slant from Douglas Adams. How I wish he'd written another several dozen novels, and lived to (at least) ninety. 'It was dark early, which was normal for the time of year. It was cold and windy, which was normal. It started to rain, which was particularly normal.  a spacecraft landed, which was not."
