    Two old school friends came to visit yesterday, we've not seen each other for over 38 years but it felt like being 15 again talking about the music we used to listen to, places we went and people we knew. Some sobering moments too, family and friends we've lost and places long gone but that's what happens as you get older. It's amazing how things we did all those years ago felt like they had just happened and we were having a laugh about them. A return visit is promised soon and that's when all the old records and photos will come out, stand by for the 70's LP's and dodgy school trip snaps!. It was absolutely brilliant catching up, must do more of it.

    How have you gone on since Lionel Ritchie left? I suppose you can still do "Machine Gun", what with it being an instrumental, like.

    Did anyone bring their old bedroom posters along, y'know, that Farrah Fawcett one, taken on a chilly day, and the one with the tennis player scratching her arse with a tennis ball?

    Might have been a bit awkward as my friends are both girls, but you never know.....

    My late father would have approved - he was a theologian and ordained in the CofE.

    A friend who I went to school with up in London moved to Seattle and lived there for ten years. Lost touch with him until all of a sudden a few weeks ago I discovered that he came back to the UK and lives in Cambridge, which is close to where I live. He came over on Sunday for lunch and in the time when we lost contact he became a martial arts instructor. We ending up training for around 4 hours. Fantastic day, but I did end up with some lovely bruises that I have no idea how I actually aquired.

    WOW !! Now that's a thing.

    He would have obviously been qualified and learned in the matter which is both invaluable and priceless
