Heki card models

Heki appear to be a German company which manufactures HO scale buildings made from card. They come in kit form and are reasonably priced.

Currently listening to:

Afrobeats:

Basically, the urban music of young Africans as broadcast on Radio 1 Extra.

Apparently, the 's' is crucial. Afrobeats is not to be confused with Afrobeat. So there!

Apparently, there was an Afrobeats element involved in the opening ceremony to the London Olympic Games.

See this link from the Guardian.

Last night's dinner:


A kind of homemade chicken curry and boiled rice. Whole chicken cut into pieces cost about £5. A jar of tomato based sauce, 2 onions and the leftover sauce from a previous take-away curry that had been put in the freezer. Used half and froze the rest.

Cost per head: approx. £1.80

The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand:


Because I have so enjoyed the novel, decided to buy the DVD of the film version of the Fountainhead starring Gary Cooper and Patricia Neal. The DVD is in Region 1 format ie for US machines only. But it can be viewed on any laptop with Windows Media Player.


One film critic wrote that it was the 'dottiest' film he had ever seen. But that did not surprise him since The Fountainhead is one of the 'dottiest' books ever written. I would agree with that.
