November 03, 2007
Jay is right, I have been less than honest, economical with the actualite, I have been posting sock of the day late and today is no different. I’m watching Match of The Day on Saturday (Arsenal vs. Man (cheating starbards!) Utd.) and here is Sock of the Day for Friday.
Todays socks are long blue woolly ones and not worthy of SotD status.
Anyhow… I have to Rave today about Bonfire Night – okay its not actually Nov 5th but in practice this is the night. It has dawned on me that this is one of the few events that brings communities in Britain together these days. As I drove home from the Bonfire Night at my archery club – where I was in charge or the fireworks (fortunately nothing went wrong, I won’t be featured on UTube) – the streets were full of people walking to or from bonfire parties, in good spirits, smoke drifting everywhere and bangs, whistles and screeches coming from all directions. For me it is like general election evenings with people walking to the polling stations and New Year or Christmas Eve but without the drunkenness. Why is this so rare?
