I went to war with this mahonia once, and I think I won. I suffered injuries but at least my car suffered scratches no more. Birds live in it, which presents a mystery: why would they do such an apparently reckless thing? It would be like me seeking comfort in a barbed wire dressing gown.
I exist in two time zones at once. Apparently. Am I some kind of weird quantum entity? Only my cappuccino knows…
Can we ever know the moment when fog ceases to be fog? Of course not. Fog is a bit like life in that respect.
I enjoyed my time at the London School of Economics. I recently found my diaries for the LSE years – 1976 to 1978 – and started to transcribe them in February 2021.
If LSE, KCL, GeogAss, Ents, the 3 Tuns, Florrie’s and the Joint School of Geography mean anything to you, there might be something of interest here. I have a lot to add over the next few months! I would love to hear from you if you were around at the time.

Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoias were always good reliable fun – a mixture of comedy and music forever changing and forever funny. Snuff Boogie!
A pretty good day for me, like so many others in my time at the LSE. This entry from my diary in 1976 has me listening to Caravan in the morning and getting down to the Marquee in the evening to see a completely unknown band called AC/DC…
It is 1976 and with punk happening it is sometimes easy to forget that jazz-rock was also a pretty big ‘underground’ scene at the time, with lots of wild and whacky bands and tunes crashing out of all directions to challenge ear-brain co-ordination.
music, film, gigs, TV…
