First World problems.

Happy New Year everyone.

I read when god spoke English a few years back and it is indeed fascinating, so much so that I thought I'd have a go at the Book itself. Only to be sadly disappointed. The bits we regularly hear in church are indeed beautiful, but when you start trawling through Numbers, Judges etc good grief it becomes a bit of a labour of llove.

So I' m taking a break but I do intnd to finish it, not because I'm a devout Christian but I am fascinated by this book which speaks to us from dozens of centuries ago, from the bronze age in places (bit like Homer really) and is furthermore a cornerstone of our civilization, along with Mill, Locke, Smith, Burke and the rest.

Happy new year to one and all.

And death to the political class! (Only joking of course, we love 'em to bits really)

Happy New Year All.

Jimmy, they don't make 'em like that anymore.

What a busy fellow you are, Duff.
Amazing that you find time for the tap-dancing lessons and all.

Well, Andra, that's what I keep telling the 'Memsahib' when she wants me to do some hoovering or gardening, I mean, there are only so many hours in the day!

Happy new year, David, although I'm a day late. I just finished a phenomenal book that I HIGHLY recommend to one and all. On the Move, by Oliver Sacks. It's his final memoir. No one writes like Sacks. We lost a truly gifted writer.

Thanks, Dom, and an equally happy new year to you and yours. Of course, I have heard of Sacks and his recent death reminded me that I ought to read some of his books.
