Thank you all, he is, quoting my daughter, "Emmett! Born Sept 10, length of 21 inches, weighing 8 lbs 7 oz. 10 days late but worth the wait!"

I bought a bottle of Buxton mineral water today, and on the side is a load of old hooey saying 'Our water is 5000 years old' and so forth. So why the hell does the bottle have an expiry date in December?

In this morning's local paper and was picked out by readers as the best obituary they ever read.

My point is he was an unabashed good ol' boy, no illustrious ancestry, or material wealth or overwhelming religious fervency, as is often the case in this paper.

A celebration of his life, and you know what folks, there's nowt wrong with that !!

Spent some time with some great friends today, expats that have lived here for over 45 years.

They are heading back to England and Ireland next week for a visit, both are in their 70's but act like they are 30 years younger! Their 3 week itinerary made me worn out just reading it. It was kind of a bucket list in case they dont go back again.

Made me smile when the subject of finding Eccles Cakes came up
