    I finally got around to transferring some stuff off of my wife's computer. A list of passwords to some websites, and a bunch of pictures. Christ, the woman had so many duplicates. It was time well spent going through them.

    I finally gave-up and opened a Facebook account. My wife handled all that social media junk...before. But I still need to stay in touch with some people, even though I'm thoroughly misanthropic . Modern problems.
    Opportunities abound! Land and titles available! Be bold! Enquire now!
    See Cazique Gregor MacGregor of details.

    Yeah Coads is obviously a legend but Grealish!!!!!!!! He plays for that team on the Witton Road, what are they called? Wait a second I'll look it up on internet...
    Aston Villa, who are they? Exactly.
    Overated, next your going to be suggesting some Team Tesco players from that farm yard ground The Hawthorns join (to all non English readers this is just me slandering any Midlands/Birmigham/Black Country none Wolverhampton Wanderers team). Your might be the Messiah but your a very naughty boy if you even think of suggesting any Bluenoses.
    Pope I like and Calvert Lewen, but Grealish only played semi-well for he does play for a pub team so is used to it. Sorry dither... , I respect you as the new Buddah and the peace ad joy that brings to me on a personal and spiritual level. But I've had to endure a lifetime of these teams fans. They are the Devil.
    Yeah but apart from that I'm fine... Belgium will win us tonight.

    EDIT - I was wrong England 2 - Belgium (world ranking number one) 1
    Dither no doubt already had the score in his diary

    I was thinking more that Ancient fellow (one of the classics peoples/maybe a saint (I went to a comp)) who spent all his life, stood on top of a really tall column/plinth, arguing with a mountain/volcano (yes my grasp of the facts is helpful, the internet is only one click away yet I refuse to use it, I'm that lazy) - I might be conflating two plinth people there so don't take my word for it. You probably have the answer in your diary anyway. Yes the diary. dither... in these dark and troubled times, when the world is looking for hope, a ray of light, understanding, a guiding beacon to lead us out of the dark, fear and ignorance - and back in to the sunny uplands of a green and pleasant land, this sceptered isle, you. You dither... you are the one who holds the answers. Those truths that the military industrial complex - Builderberg - the deep state - the lizard people and Ant and Dec don't want us to know about. Only you can save us. I stand ready to serve you. Sit meekly to listen to you. Bow deferrentially in awe of you. Call and the people will answer. Build it and they will come. We are behind you dither... (Woops, sorry had a panic there, my tinfoil hat fell off). Release the diaries. lead us oh dither... Save the world, save dither... Release the diaries.

    So yeah anyways, unexpected win. I was a bit gutted Coady did't play. Not a great first half but to come back from behind against the worlds number one ranked team and win. Okay they were missing players but our home record, loads of win loss records, I were looking at them divvo and... well it makes no sense. I haven't recovered from the heartbreak of Euro 96. I were twelve, crying my eyes out like a little babby. That and being Wolves prepared me well for a lifetime of disappointment. But both are doing really well these last three year. What does that portend oh Nostradither for us as a person? Cheers mate, hope your well, all the best PG

    Yesterday I recorded the story of Anansi and the giant snake and tried to upload it to my 'Story shack' on You tube... four times in all! Of course I didn't record it four times just tried to upload it. To check I was on the right path I recorded one of my stories called 'The Call' and it went fine. I think it is a bit to long at sixteen minutes and the phone can't cope, I have had it on charge overnight and will try again in a bit, but this does not bode well as it is from my repertoire of traditional stories and is one of the shorter ones, still I now have eight items, five stories and three limericks, and The call had seven views in the first hour and a half it was up, so something is happening

    The clarity that morning brings

    I think I have fixed the problem with the YouTube url in my signature, re-copied and pasted it and it seems to work every time now, and I discovered I needed a verification code to upload a video that long, it is there now if anyone fancies a story It is a West Indian traditional tale which travelled the Atlantic. In West Africa Anansi is the son of the Sky God, but by the time he reached Jamaica he is simply a very clever fellow, half man half spider

It is not easy handling a large owl when you want to do things they don't want, the beak end is snappy and nasty, but the feet end is near lethal. Grabbing her across the back so the wings are held closed and then turning her upside down and wrapping her in a towel is the normal way, I don't know what they did for x-raying. Also the vet had an emergency operation to deal with from a RTA right in the middle, so she was there from morning through to about 9pm.
    Dear Ollie, I was wondering how your owl is doing? I am fascinated with her story... how did you get her... is she friendly? I have an African grey parrot named Scooby, and he is a handful and takes a lot of dedication and care... but an owl.. that is so cool.... hopefully your owl has recovered?
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    My brother bought a pet dog for my mother's birthday which is soon. It's a pomeranian. My other dog passed away some months ago. I wonder if I will have to brush its teeth. Because it got sick since we never kept its mouth clean. I hope it is not a lot of work is all.
