Random Thought Day

1. Barack Obama (US democratic party candidate) is extremely impressive. I have just been YouTubing a few of his speeches. Is there a ghost of a chance that a young, well-spoken intelligent man with integrity might actually be elected in the USA?

2. Am feeling glum (as I do periodically) about very sparse feedback to blog. I think I need to do something else. Blog might go on holiday for a while so I can direct creativity, time and thought-power into other avenues. I am prepared to listen to heartfelt pleas of the blog readership. In other words I am desperately fishing for compliments.

3. On a very hot evening (still 30° at 11.30pm) I set myself up on the back deck, with the radio and a good view of the full moon, to listen to the cricket. Just as I settled in the radio was drowned out. By a cricket. Chirping right in my ear from the elevated garden bed right where I sat. Irony eh?

4. Boo hiss to Channel 9, for not showing Sri Lanka v India match. First time they have EVER not shown a match of annual one-day tri-series, since it started in 1980. Turned out to be most exciting of the season, with fantastic sub-continental atmosphere from surprisingly big crowd.

...of COURSE we love reading your blog, you Duffer!

I would be very dissapointed if the dripstream of your life and thoughts was to disappear, especially as I am about to go away again.

Don't comment often because you email it to me which removes that one convenient 'click button to respond' step.
