Been working on a musical project for the last year which is coming on okay. It is a musical (like a rock opera I suppose) aimed at a young or alternative audience (still looking for them) about individualism and nature. It is something we have been working on for years and have finally decided to get it done. Coming soon.

'Wildlife Explorers'

Each of these poor kids is unfortunate as having me as an uncle. The great thing about wildlife explorers (junior section of the RSPB) is you can impose it on the kids without their permission- ha ha . (top to bottom: Wildlife Explorers Sid, Harrison, Dylan and Archie).

Gull Watching- nuisances

This is the sort of sh#t that you have to put up with when trying to sort out a flock of larid on a beach;
Nuisance No 1: Pathetic lovers

Just watch this species rich mixed aged group of larid ruined by yet another fantasist.

The Game

Just to elaborate (Denise ((hi))) on my situation. I spent an afternoon in hospital getting rehydrated after a six day food poisoning incident which limited my movements to hotel rooms and public toilets. This just happened to coincide with my mother coming to join us for a few days. She wanted to join us for a few days so she could go to Mount Ebo and stand where Moses stood as the promise land was revealed to him. She came, she saw, she criticised my life and she went.

Now I have recovered from my food poisoning. However a new situation has arisen. I am in a hotel in a town I do not know the name of yet. Paul and I had an argument and now he has left me with only a few items-the clothes I am wearing, my laptop, my empty wallet and I hope he left my passport at reception (which I plan to check once I have had a cup of tea). I need to buy a jumper. He has all my money in his account which we transferred to one source for ease of paying bills etc.

So the game has been set- drink some tea, find my passport, get some money, buy a jumper, find out the name of the town, work out how I get back to London and then work out where am I going to live becuase I rented my flat out for two months which does not expire for two more weeks.

Life's a Game. Let's see how I get on?


Finally got an internet connection. Basically ended up in hospital on a drip, my mother turned up near the Dead Sea, fell out with my brother Paul who cancelled the trip, my neice found out that I had removed her video from my blog and now I am advertising it back here for my blog readers (me) before she blanks me too
and somewhere over the last few days there was something going on about Moses.
