    Coming back from a gig the other night, the lead guitarist was driving and we got a flat tyre. Ok, so we pulled all the gear out of the boot (trunk for the Americans), and with the help of the drummer who pulled up behind us we changed the tyre... only the spare was flat as well.
    No problem, the drummer had a compressor- it was under all his gear. So we pulled all the gear out of his car and got the compressor then blew up the tyre... but it had a hole as well.

    X-( X-( X-( X-(

    So we put all the gear back in the two cars, the drummer drove me home and I got my car and drove all the way back to pick up the guitarist and all the gear, leaving his car till the next day.

    All this at 2am or so. The joys of being in a working band.

    I blame the drummer. Bit suspicious that you were all in one vehicle except for the drummer...and it was your vehicle that got the flat, not his. Hmmmm....

    As if we needed more evidence that "deranged members of the Moon Sect" is a redundancy.

    That's nothing, there's an even newer one now in which people stick their hands in their pockets and rattle the coins together to make a song. It's called....

    "Tune your change"

    The company Caledonian MacBrayne (usually abbreviated to CalMac) pretty much have a monopoly on ferry travel to the Scottish islands and they certainly take advantage of it. This weekend my band are doing a mini-tour and I had to arrange the ferries this morning. Over three hours on the phone, dealing with cancelled ferries, automated replies, etc. It was all a lot more frustrating and complicated than it needed to be and we have had to book sailing times a lot earlier than we really need to. Still, it's better than the last time we tried to do this when they cancelled our sailing at the last minute leaving us and the venues very disappointed.

So I asked the lady to reach over and hand me my choice of book , only to be told that dopey and Spazz where in that section , surely they should been located in the under fives section of the store . So no book . So troops of to WH Smith downstairs .only to find a big que of 6 year old girls waiting in line to see Essexs favourite bird .(I don't want to rude I'm sure she loves her food) and they wouldn't let me in , because all these 6 year old girls where in there ,but I was found not guilty I protested . Still no book X-( X-(

    Who singlehandedly scupper the bill making "Up skirting" ( photographing up a woman's skirt ) illegal. I guess
    he must like that sort of thing, he has in the past been caught putting in for huge expenses and he is a conservative MP after all. :)) As Blackadder pointed out " Sexual deviancy is expected "

    He's in cahoots with one of my local MPs, the charmless misogynist Philip Davies. It's hard to credit that British politics is so tribal that people can vote for such awful people because they wear the right colour rosette.

    Any one not familiar with the news in London , it seems thousands of London (work bound) fleeced to the eyeballs hard pressed commuters , where severely delayed in getting into work , going to hospital appointments , meetings , or just going out to have a enjoyable day in this fair city of ours (I could go on but I'm sure you've all been delayed on a train) any way the reason for this , 3 young men who buy all accounts needed to artistically express their so called extraordinary talent , decided to commit an illegal act , trespassing onto the railway ,then cause hundreds of pounds (if not thousands) and commit criminal damage to some one else's property , I'd they sprayed ,not for the first time graffiti on somebody's property at 1pm in the morning ,skulking along the railway like some wild rats,only to be hit and killed by a train (oh dear how sad never mind) thus causing the massive afore mentioned delays to Londoners.Now a TFL director has called these boys common scum , I'd go along with that , these people are a bloody menace , they desecrate our cities , because they feel the need to express their selves with paint .Now if any of you woke up in the morning and found the side of your house covered in paint , or your hard earned shop or office I'm sure you would say what scum did this , I would with a few clucking bells thrown in . Now this poor old TFL director is now on the hot coals over his remark , the boy's parents are of course saying oh but they all went to church and they are all artistically gifted etc .Now I myself have on more than one occasion been on the railway line as a policeman chasing these scum ,risking my life , possibly leaving a widow and father less children behind , because his dad says he is a talented artist , no he is a criminal ,why don't you let him paint on the side of your house then dopey

    This morning seemed very nice after yesterday's non stop rain , so grabs dogs lead and off we go to feed the ducks . Now the duck pond seems as if it's been Astro turfed over with all the ducks looking rather bewildered at their habitat
