I’VE GOT A TURBO SNAKE!!!

This a very clever gizmo. It wiggles it’s way down your plug holes and gathers up all the hair and detritus that restricts your flow. Anything that helps with restricted flow has got to be good! You’ll notice however that it’s still in it’s packet. There is a very good reason for this. I put […]

I’VE GOT A COLD ….

….. so to cheer myself up I thought I’d have a look at some piccies from our last stay in Surfugal. These olive pots are HUGE …. over 6 feet tall. They were on display outside a shop selling ceramics. This life sized goddess was across the yard from her gentleman friend. He wanted to […]

NAUTICAL ……. BUT NICE

I decided to amuse myself the other day by substituting the word ‘bowel’ for ‘boat’ as Lo, she is a terrible Goddess was describing the scene from the balcony down here in the South of Surfugal. “Oh look at that little boat – it’s very pretty.” I suppressed a smile. “There are a lot of […]

HIGHS AND LOWS

At low tide you can walk to the beach café, rather grandly called the Yacht Club which is tucked in under the cliffs, in about six minutes …….. there’s a short-cut along the beach under the watchful eye of the castle. At high tide it takes EIGHT minutes from the apartment to get to the […]

REFLECTING ON ARCHITECTURE

“Let us conceive, consider and create together the new building of the future that will bring all into one single integrated creation; architecture, painting and sculpture rising to heaven out of the hands of a million craftsmen, the crystal symbol of the new faith of the future.” I’m pretty sure that Walter Gropius didn’t have […]

YOU AREN’T HERE ….

…… and neither are Lo, she is a terrible Goddess and I. We’re in Portugal …….. for several weeks. I’ll leave you a nice walk to enjoy while we’re away and when I return, I expect you to be bronzed and fit and experts on gorse of course. . Match of the Month Keep safe […]

A PICTURE [OR TWO] IS BETTER ……ETC ETC ETC ………

If you look South from our apartment in Portugal you might see something like this. If you go out of the front door and turn right and walk for about five minutes you might come across something like this. The second picture is more representative of the weather. We rent out the apartment if we […]

MAGIC

Magic is wherever you want to find it. White magic at the marina in Lagos, Portugal. Black magic on the road to Sesmarias, Portugal. Black and white magic at the marina in Lagos, Portugal. The result of magic? Cabril, Portugal. (Peabrain! I’ve never seen you look so handsome. Lo,TG Ed) .

THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY ……..

I had such a lovely time at Penfold’s and Tango’s mountain hideaway eating open sandwiches, mending the kitchen and encouraging a grass mowing ethic, that I nearly forget why I was there – the pursuit of the Wild Gingernut. I wandered far and wide in my search carrying a knotted hankie tied to a stick […]

I’M NOT TOTALLY CONVINCED …….

……. about the efficacy of withdrawal from the Interweave. As Lo, she is a terrible Goddess will confirm, this is a true likeness of me after several days of being pampered by Tango in the house that Penfold built, with little or no contact with Interweave World. Oh well, I had assumed that there was […]
