Sevens to Murgatroyd! Over the weekend, this blog turned seven years old. Since 2010 I’ve been (mostly) posting daily doses of waffle and wonderment (and at times I do wonder what I was thinking!) but on the whole I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed (nearly) every moment of it. I’ve ‘met’ some absolutely fabulous folk through Blogland, with varied interests and thoughts, some of … Continue reading Seven

The Pinocchio Effect

Decades ago when I was just a wee boy, knee high to a grasshopper, and in total awe of everything that was around me, I made a monumental decision. OK, I wasn’t exactly knee high, getting on for eight, nine or possibly ten years old, and the awesomeness of some things had started to shine a little less brightly thanks to a few ‘others’ who … Continue reading The Pinocchio Effect

Feel Good Friday!

Time for a new feature, I feel. I have a fun connection with the Universe, I really do! I love how things are delivered to me in such amazing ways that if they were written down they would seem far-fetched at least, impossible at most. Even the things that recently spiralled out of control come under this connection – everything that is coming into my … Continue reading Feel Good Friday!

Aswas As Willbe

Little secluded hideaways Shelter from the Sun Those days are now memories Now that Winter has begun Days of Spring behind us Autumn sings her farewell song But in a few months time again Those days will spring along Meanwhile, it’s time to chill To reflect on what has been To wrap up warm and welcome in The pleasant Christmas scene Focus on the present … Continue reading Aswas As Willbe

Keeping Legends Living

As time is a little short, I have several fine, new and wondrous folk following my blog, and I have posts to post if I want to reach my target of 2,000 posts by New Year’s Eve, I’ve taken the decision to use a shortcut this evening, and repost a little legend I shared back in 2012. Hopefully my long time followers have forgotten this … Continue reading Keeping Legends Living

Through the ages (Part One)

I stumbled across a box of old photographs earlier today – and some photos were of me in a past life! I kid you not. Way back when, long before I was a blogger (and not a very good one for the last few days – I apologise about that!), I was a different person completely. Back in the year 202AD, I was actually a … Continue reading Through the ages (Part One)

Reminiscing II

Since 1968, the year I arrived in this cycle, confused and all unknowing, a lot has changed. I referred to the introduction of colour television in yesterday’s post to highlight significant changes made along the way that now are just taken for granted. I also mentioned the introduction of mobile phones, and now not a day goes by when we witness someone walking along intently … Continue reading Reminiscing II

The Superhero Diaries: Special: Come the Heroes

I haven’t posted about the Elite Force of Britain for a while, but they are still there, working hard at being superheroes. Over on Splodge and Splatter, I posted the original to the above image yesterday, but just thought I’d post a quick who’s who. It’s only about ten years too late – and not all the whos are there, but that’s their fault for … Continue reading The Superhero Diaries: Special: Come the Heroes

Down at the Dark End of the Lake

Time is a little on the short side at present. Not as short as with last night’s post, which owing to a computer malfunction resulted in the Magical Mystical Moonset rhyme being dramatically cut short to the well used phrase ‘Just Because’. I thought I’d share with you another view of the Lake, this time, the ‘Dark End’. This is the place where the creatures … Continue reading Down at the Dark End of the Lake

View from the window: External Decorations

This post links to my latest post over on Splodge and Splatter, and also provides a little background to Icewolf’s intergalactic tale, the third part of which can be found here. Being at the far end of the Galaxy, as I seem to be at the moment, in the Mansion, of course, I’m seeing a light show put on by the very Universe itself. Bursts … Continue reading View from the window: External Decorations

View from the window: Back!

Oooh! Things have changed here at the Mansion. I’ve had new windows fitted throughout (well, as throughout as possible within this ever-changing Mansion of mine!) We’ve had a slight dusting of snow, so I’ve been out in the Grinds trying to push it out of the way – although it’ll be all gone by tomorrow, apparently. That was what the ‘Oooh!’ was for at the … Continue reading View from the window: Back!
