Sometimes i really do not know what to put in a blog but that writer's block kind of reaction doesn't happen often . It did yesterday though.

Anyway after a surprisingly fine sunny bank holiday Monday today the weather notched a step up to become even sunnier with temps rising to 27 degrees C. I popped over to Faversham to sell some paperbacks gacked from the left out books from outside a charity shop that is having a refit in Tunbridge Wells the other day. They were in a box with "take for free" on it, and i sold them for three quid - the rest i kept - i took eight books and sold four.

That was the highlight of the day. I spent a couple of hours sunbathing and watched the Steve Jobs biopic DVD. Can i say , what a control freak and dick he is - well that is my opinion of him ,genius or not. I also felt sorry to Steve Wozniak being belittled by Jobs. Fascinating film though.

In the film towards the end, John Sculley (former Apple CEO) arrives in secret at the launch of the iMac and the two make amends. Jobs and Sculley discuss Jobs' life as an adopted child, and Jobs admits that his need for control stems from his feelings of powerlessness in being given up. At the behest of Hoffman, Jobs apologizes to Lisa for his mistakes, admitting that he is "poorly made". Lisa watches her father take the stage to introduce the iMac.


I also finished the whole eight seasons of Charmed again, Think i will leave it for awhile,I am steadily going through Season 10 of Supernatural and so far it's a blast.

Hopefully tomorrow  i will have a remittance from React Surveys as it is the last day of the month. Can it be September so soon?

Tonbridge and Crowborough Visits

Did a couple of visits today in Tonbridge and Crowborough. A Factory store shop and a charity shop.

Weather was quite warm for the day but i do feel that the mood is quite autumnal now.

Tonight i will probably watch a few more DVD's anyway. Not much else to say - just a boring bank holiday Monday really.


Just watched the DVD of Vertigo - one of \Hitchcock's best movies.Kim Novak was brilliant in itand the lush music by Bernard Hermann complements it thoroughly.

Dear Prudence

I feel blessed that i am in good health and hearty and it made me wonder how Shannen (Prue to Charmed devotees) is doing - this id from the latest Wiki update.

"In August, 2015, Shannen announced that she is battling breast cancer. She was first diagnosed in March 2015.[1] Nothing more was released about the battle until Wednesday 20 July, 2016, when Shannen — in a six-part Instagram post — showed the journey of shaving her head. Alyssa Milano reposted one of the posts with the caption "Shannen, we are all in your corner wishing you health and love! #cancersucks". Rose McGowan reposted one of the photos as well, asking her followers to send strength to Shannen.

In early August, 2016, Shannen noted that she had undergone a single mastectomy, however, the during the surgery, the doctor discovered that the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes with the possibility of further spreading. Doherty states that "They're just breasts. In the grand scheme of things, I would rather be alive and I would rather grow old with my husband." Shannen will undergo further chemotherapy and if needed, radiation. Shannen believes that living with one breast is manageable, but she fears for the future and a possible recurrence of the cancer. Doherty had an expander fitted in place of the removed breast."

Poems Of The Week

Well i had to choose them because of the Bennett book -

The Darkling Thrush
Poem by Thomas Hardy

I leant upon a coppice gate,
When Frost was spectre-gray,
And Winter's dregs made desolate
The weakening eye of day.
The tangled bine-stems scored the sky
Like strings of broken lyres,
And all mankind that haunted nigh
Had sought their household fires.

The land's sharp features seemed to me
The Century's corpse outleant,
Its crypt the cloudy canopy,
The wind its death-lament.
The ancient pulse of germ and birth
Was shrunken hard and dry,
And every spirit upon earth
Seemed fervorless as I.

At once a voice arose among
The bleak twigs overhead,
In a full-hearted evensong
Of joy illimited.
An aged thrush, frail, gaunt and small,
With blast-beruffled plume,
Had chosen thus to fling his soul
Upon the growing gloom.

So little cause for carolings
Of such ecstatic sound
Was written on terrestrial things
Afar or nigh around,
That I could think there trembled through
His happy good-night air
Some blessed Hope, whereof he knew,
And I was unaware.

Thomas Hardy

Nothing To Be Said
Poem by Philip Larkin

For nations vague as weed,
For nomads among stones,
Small-statured cross-faced tribes
And cobble-close families
In mill-towns on dark mornings
Life is slow dying.

So are their separate ways
Of building, benediction,
Measuring love and money
Ways of slow dying.
The day spent hunting pig
Or holding a garden-party,

Hours giving evidence
Or birth, advance
On death equally slowly.
And saying so to some
Means nothing; others it leaves
Nothing to be said.
