I must apologise for not doing my blog lately folks as I have been a bit preoccupied with DIY and been away for a few days in March/April so…
I hope you all are well and having a good read of my website now and again and that 2010 is being good to you so far?
Anyway, I have been out and about lately and went for a quick break to Scotland, which was really nice and quiet away from the maddening crowd so it was nice to get away.
I also went for a drink in this hotel the other week in Manchester and it was really nice, http://www.cpmanchester.com/ I like the bar at the Hilton Manchester too - http://www.hilton.co.uk/manchesterdeansgate . However I do like the http://www.sohohouseny.com/ in New York, much more exiting!
Apparently there have been some new pictures of Marilyn Monroe out today, which have not been seen before, these are my favourites here on my blog this month. I hope you like them? She was so beautiful, yet so tormented sensory deprivation of mother is so distructive emotionally - http://www.babiesonline.com/articles/baby/scienceofmotherslove.asp
I watched the interview with Tom Baker (the old Dr Who) the other night on Anytime on Sky TV and found him really funny and interesting. I may buy his autobiography this month. I am reading the new Lee Child's book on Jack again, I love that character - http://www.leechild.com/books.php. Lee Child in my opinion is a great novelist. I know you say, there are other books out there that I have yet to read, thousands of them, but I am a sucker for Jack!
Bit of info for you, what happened today years ago on the 19th April? Captain James Cook sighted Australia in 1770. Marie Antoinette married Louis XVI in a proxy wedding also in 1770 and Mae West was sentenced to 10 days in jail for obscenity for her play, Sex in 1927.
I have been keeping my eye and ear on the news and politics with the looming election, as usual and its never away from the TV news and papers. I find politics very interesting and really enjoy political debates such as Question Time, etc. I found the debate with the three party leaders, most interesting and I am looking forward to the next one.
The skies are very quiet at the moment and its not unusual for me to look up into that beautiful blue sky and admire a contrail or two and wishing I was on that plane to the states or somewhere interesting in the world. It just shows you that putting all your eggs in one basket so to speak, such as a plane's etc., is a risk, especially in relation to Volcanoes, glass dust and black clouds, not forgetting airport security and terrorists etc., how small we all seem at times! I bet we are all going to feel the pinch in our pockets, regarding imported fruit, computer parts soon due to the dust! We so rely on specific things so much, like computer, oil, mobile phones, electricity, the bloody banks, the Internet, air travel. We go into shock mode if one or two of these things are taken away from us. “Economic disasters loom too, for airlines and others. There are genuinely frightened travellers stuck from Mumbai to Moscow, without much money and with their children”. I read this, this morning. It must be terrible for lots of people who are stranded out there. However, there are always winners in bad situations, especially those people with few responsibilities, plenty of finances, sitting on a beach all day because the airlines are paying their hotel bill, lucky them! Lol.
I don't think I will be doing any tours this month folk, sorry!
Anyway, hope your all okay and I speak soon, promise!
