Mott the Hoople

Far too busy today to do anything on the model railway.

Here's a random image about French model railways from the internet.

I downloaded it from a French model railway store whose address is:

Dali & Co sas
4 rue de Picardie    
77580 Villiers sur Morin    

This is an HO scale kit building costing approx £15

Villiers sur Morin is an idyllic looking village east of Paris.

Mott the Hoople:

For some reason, I always thought that Mott the Hoople were a Welsh band from the 1970s.  In fact, they were basically English.

They were named after the novel (now out of print) of the same name by Willard Manus.

They released 4 or 5 excellent pop singles in the 70s.

They're all still alive and aged in their late 60s and 70s and still performing in one guise or another.

They all look very fit and healthy for their age.

On a TV documentary last night, they came over as intelligent, sensible and civilised chaps.

Their singer was Ian Hunter born in 1939 - this is him today.

This is the group in its heyday.

Last night's dinner on a shoestring:

Courgettes, mushrooms and Parmesan
Cost per head: £1.25

Continuing to read:

The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand:

Suddenly it has switched gear and reads like Wuthering Heights set in post-war USA similar to the era of TV's "Madmen".

I couldn't put it down last night.

Here are some of the covers that the book has been published in.

And, I'm really curious to get hold of the film!


Did no Meditation today - far too busy. That says it all !!!!!!!

Too busy to commune with the Almighty?????????????????

"A man who does not act on his beliefs, doesn't believe."

At least I went to Mass this morning.

"At least!!!!!!!!!!". That also says it all.
