Hmm, it seems people have been commenting on my blog, wonderful. Unfortunately I’ve been neglectful and didn’t notice. Still, to flog a dead horse (is that a real expression, I’m somewhat dubious seeing it written down..), yes Richard most definitely does look like Art Garfunkel. I realise that most people reading this will be somewhat more familiar with Art Garfunkel than with Bridget’s dad, but here are Simon and Garfunkel at the concert in central park.

If I can write another two entries about him then I can call them Richard III and Henry IV part I, this will be hilarious. Still, if he ever stumbled across this he might find it a bit odd. Maybe better not.

Also famous for being the tetris theme.
Which I know doesn’t really count as a blog entry, but I need to pack for Germany.

Now they teach you a lot of things about nature at school. I left knowing a little about ecosystems and predator prey models, maybe a thing or two about the human body. A night at Pesica Jezero, high above Biogradska Gora in Montenegro, taught me something else. Nature is scary. Things make noises. Things howl in the distance. Wind and tent can combine to make very good imitations of hungry carnivore noises. And so I learned that phrases like ‘idyllic unspoiled landscape’, certainly to be savoured by the intrepid group, should be carefully considered by the solitary hiker. Things weren’t helped by the fact that the quite enchanting snake catcher I’d met at lunch seemed not to share my guidebook’s relaxed attitude to snakes. Looking deep into my eyes she warned me not to stray into the long grass where I wouldn’t be able to see the ground ahead. “Yes, maybe you bit and tomorrow dead” was the helpful contribution of the shepherd come restauranteur whose summer cottage in the mountains had been my lunch stop.
Arriving at my camping spot for the evening, the truly beautiful Pesica Jezero, the first thing I did was check around for snakes. There were none, and I settled down to bread and cheese for dinner, read some Madame Bovary and dipped my toes in the lake. I was utterly alone. Now it is the duty of any father to give his son a basic grounding in Sun Tzu’s Art of War, and my Dad having done an excellent job I was more than capable of routing the mountain cattle on the two occasions on which they approached my tent, it was however the mammals with sharper teeth that I was scared of. As the sun went down I got into bed and waited for sleep. And waited. Eventually I plucked up the courage to listen to some Mahler and soon drifted off when I couldn’t hear the noises nature was making. And through the long hours of darkness I slept occasionally, wearing fleece gloves and woolly hat I also spent many cold hours waiting for dawn. Of course dawn did come, one of the most welcome sunrises of my life, and much relieved I slept another two hours before hiking back into town.
I then hitched a lift for forty miles with a member of Bijelo Polje FC, living the dream…

Paul Simon promised us fifty ways to leave your lover, but offered us only the following.
Slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don’t need to be coy, Roy
Just listen to me
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don’t need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free
In order to make up the numbers, improve the gender balance and provide personalised advice to friends for current or future partners, Kempez’s blog proudly offers the following.
Make him choke on a widget, Bridget,
You just gotta castrate, Kate,
Cast an evil curse, Urs,
come listen to me.
Push him in yellow snow, Flo,
Make a very bad smell, El,
Karate chop in the neck, Bec,
and then you’ll be free.
The only good rhymes I could get for Lou were quite puerile (sp?). And now in the absence of good blogging here’s some music from the muppets.
Coming next week, fifty ways to leave your leader. (Stab him in the back,Jack. don’t be afraid comrade,...)

I went home to Derby for a much needed rest over the weekend. I met up with Kady and Bridget and we bought a couple of shirts (Too much football manager = no time for washing clothes) and went for a meal and drinks. It was really good fun. I stayed at Kady’s house and then the next day my parents came over for tea. Just before they arrived Bridget got her clarinett out and I found my Jazz book and started bashing out some standards on Kady’s very honky tonk piano. I havent had so much fun with music in ages.
Anyway, now I’m back in Warwick and looking for someone else to play piano with. I can’t sight read proper music very well but am fine with the chords my jazz book gives me and they work extremely well with the tunes. If any clarinettists/saxophonists/brass players/violinists/others out there are in Warwick at the moment and want to play please drop me an email.
