The Piper at the Gates of Dawn

Decided to see if it was possible to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, and began to tinker with the Parisian backdrop to the layout.

First step was to blacken the white spaces on the Eiffel Tower using a Magic Marker.


I think it's an improvement.

Will amend another part of it tomorrow.

Currently listening to:

I love the summery hippy feel of this first album from Pink Floyd - released 1967.

In my opinion, Pink Floyd went down hill after this.

Last night's dinner:

Back to old habits and old haunts viz Fantoosh, the fishmongers in Great Western Road, Glasgow. This is probably my favourite shop in Glasgow. Seriously.

Red Mullet on one of those non-stick oven sheets

Off the bone on a bed of rice and mushrooms in a tomato sauce.
The use of these non-stick oven sheets has really transformed my cooking of fish. Guaranteed non-stick and can be washed in the dishwasher.

Currently reading:

Nearly finished:

This memoir has got better as it has gone along. The chapters on Madchester really convey the musical excitement of that period and confirm that the music of that era was as good as that of any other.


1) Thinking of buying a bicycle as part of a last attempt to prevent my having a knee replacement. These are the kind of bikes I'm thinking about.

2) And for the same purpose, thinking of buying a dance mat. Although, I'm hoping that the mat will also help me in my quest for dancing competence.

I suppose you can wire them up to a laptop.
