New Blog

After 4 wonderful years with Mr Blogger,
is deserting him and moving to Mr Tumblr

Christmas Eve
Exciting times:
Snow still on
the ground.
Presents still in
the shops.
TV programmes still on
the recording devise.
Food still in
the fridge.
And still in my mind
the fantastic nativity story
brought to life
by a brilliant show
on BBC
Well done the Beeb

snow go slow

took me a couple of hours
to drive home from the station
what a pain that was

why ? I hear you all asking
because the heavens let fall
a small snow flurry

and approaching Wroxham bridge
people stop and then can't start
up the icy hill

but now am full of mulled wine
shepherd's pie, beer and cabbage
and all's well again

Strange Thing
Strolling around the Broads today
Saw something rather odd
Some might
say unique
Certainly I'd never
seen it before
Several dozen
Scarlet clad
Sporting snowy beards
Smiling, Shouting, screaming, singing
Such fun

I bought a Christmas tree today
and it made me think of this

My King

The Bible says my King is the King of the Jews. He’s the King of Israel. He’s the King of Righteousness. He’s the King of the Ages. He’s the King of Heaven. He’s the King of Glory. He’s the King of kings, and He’s the Lord of lords. That’s my King.

My King is a sovereign King. No means of measure can define His limitless love. He’s enduringly strong. He’s entirely sincere. He’s eternally steadfast. He’s immortally graceful. He’s imperially powerful. He’s impartially merciful.

He’s the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizon of this world. He’s God’s Son. He’s the sinner’s Saviour. He’s the centrepiece of civilization. He’s unparalleled. He’s unprecedented. He is the loftiest idea in literature. He’s the highest personality in philosophy. He’s the fundamental doctrine of true theology. He’s the only one qualified to be an all sufficient Saviour.

He supplies strength for the weak. He’s available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He saves. He strengthens and sustains. He guards and He guides. He heals the sick. He cleansed the lepers. He forgives sinners. He discharges debtors. He delivers the captive. He defends the feeble. He blesses the young. He serves the unfortunate. He regards the aged. He rewards the diligent. And He beautifies the meek.

He’s the key to knowledge. He’s the wellspring of wisdom. He’s the doorway of deliverance. He’s the pathway of peace. He’s the roadway of righteousness. He’s the highway of holiness. He’s the gateway of glory.

Do you know Him? Well…

His life is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His Word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous. And His yoke is easy. And His burden is light.

I wish I could describe Him to you.....

He’s indescribable! He’s incomprehensible. He’s invincible. He’s irresistible. You can’t get Him out of your mind. You can’t get Him off of your hand. You can’t outlive Him, and you can’t live without Him. Well, the Pharisees couldn’t stand Him, but they found out they couldn’t stop Him. Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him. Herod couldn’t kill Him. Death couldn’t handle Him, and the grave couldn’t hold Him.

Yeah! That’s my King, that’s my King.

64 black and white squares
That's what I thought
the show was about
but my o my
it was so much more than that.
at the Theatre Royal in Norwich
last night
was fantastic.
And the snow is gone this morning
And I'm home
And the porridge was scrumptious
All in all, life is good today.
So, if you get a chance
go see Chess.

That's the word today
After watching Norwich play
Despite the cold and snow
Ipswich have nothing to show
As the BBC chose to say
City thump Town - Hurray!

The next word is cold.

and the final word goes to Miss H Granger
'mudblood and proud of it!'

Got off the London train in Norwich last night to be greeted by
a black dog
sniffing me out
and a load of other people
accompanied by a rather large number
of police officers

Couldn't work out
if they were routing out
or smelly people
Anyway, I got through
without too much hassle.

Bus ride
I actually
To ride on a
This week in
Where I saw lots of
Police officers
People, including rioting
Pretend students
Party goers, quite a few
Pot holes
which, apparently, there is no money to
Now I'm home
and can see lots of
Fallen Leaves
which I intend to fix

Apple trees
Plum trees
along with
and a bit of a sore back
and dirty finger nails.
A very pleasant way to spend wet and grey autumnal afternoon.


I love it at Avoncliff
a lovely walk along the canal
a lovely view of the river
a lovely pub
a lovely pint
of lovely beer.

The walk along the Thames was
and is
lovely too
Not quite the same
a little busier
a little greyer
a little more rushed
and a little (but note very) annoying because the lovely tube men were on strike.

But there is nothing lovelier
lovely Norfolk

home at last

soup run
I had a lovely 'soup' from
the local soup shop
outside the office today
Spicy Chicken and Tomato
along with lovely bread.
Last night,
as I ran out to
post a letter
(do you remember the?, paper and stamp thingy),
I passed a lot of people
q'ing to get soup
out of the back of a kind van.
Then went inside again
to watch late night tv
where the well-to-do's
were discussing cuts in housing benefit
and how it might force people out
of their homes.
Seems like are already plenty of people
I bet the money for the soup run
doesn't come out of the tax system.
So fortunately
it wont be cut.

Little trip to my favourite forest

Today was full
of sunshine.
And warmth
Generally lovely.

Went for a walk
and saw this chap
soaking up some

It was so nice
that we treated our self
to a new
Tortoise .
We have called him Titus.
He seems pretty happy in the garden.

All we need now is a gnome
to keep him company.

I can't let the day finish
without remembering
that is 10 10 10.
Quite a way through the
ten year
where all the
governments of the world
to actually do something.

What's your promise?

It's Tuesday
The pier at Hastings burnt down
The polices of the conservative party and coalition are crumbling
The price of petrol - maybe the car will have to go
The pole in my garden has bird seed hanging from it and even a few birds
The pub called the Ferry Inn has reopened in Horning and does good ham and eggs
The pretty Cheryl Cole seems to have chosen the wrong three
The poem ' my song is love unknown' is currently my favourite

I'm very happy that today I bought a clock. A task never undertaken. And this clock had been waiting for a long time. In fact it had ticked 1.67 billion times before I was even born. And every one of the ticks and tocks was the clock calling out to me. Well now we are united. And I am patiently waiting for the first gong. I am very excited.

I also bought some new slippers today. Not quite so exciting, but at least the house wont smell of rotten feet/slippers - for a few weeks. When will someone invent smell-less slippers.

The other exciting thing these last few days was the Miliband Muddle. Brothers battling out to lead the Labour Party. Not Old labour, not New labour - but apparently a new and optimistic generation. I wonder how many ticks of my clock before the General Election. I reckon about 63 million ticks.

Dover: Cliffs, Castles, Ferry

Last week my back ached from digging in the garden
This week it was sitting at the desk
and I was reminded of this picture.

St Peter
Today St Peter's is in London. I will not be travelling down. But will watch from a distance. I've listened to couple of speeches. Considering his age and frailty I can just about make out 'vot he svays' and although quite theoretical he is spot on when he says that the things of this world (drugs, alcohol, celebrity, materialism) do not last for ever (in fact just a fleeting moment) but in contrast the love of God does, always has and always will last forever. Well done.
I did struggle when he said he was Gods representative on earth,
I was pleased he didn't mention Henry the Eighth!
I liked the quote that "every economic decision has a moral consequence".
I don't really get the workings of the Holy See.

My big question is why the Pope (this, and all previous in recent centuries) will not eat in public. So no banquets or dinner parties, or hot dogs or even ice creams. I wonder why.

So, instead of going to London and landing a plum seat in Hyde Park, I'm going to go buy a plum tree and park it my gradually evolving garden.

This afternoon
went for a stroll

Saw some apples,
not far from the house
in fact in the garden

Then another thing
of beauty whilst trying
out some black and white

Then a very colourful
Red Admiral
pretty cool as
I was in Nelson country

And then the
reason for the stroll
the local broad and river.

Although only the boat
gives away the river

Cromer as at 10th September 2010

Why, why, why?
Are tree stumps
and roots
so hard
to get out.
My muscles ache
my back hurts
but the root is lying lifeless on the lawn
So I guess I win!

Also in the news today....
Norfolk is set to lose 75% of speed camera's.
Does that mean I can go 75% faster ?

In the news today,
4 interesting stories
which are worthy of comment and doubt!
First - William Hague - has he acted inappropriately. I doubt it, all that this story shows is the base nature of the British media - shame on them.
Second - Middle East peace talks - again - let hope some success, but somehow I doubt it.
Third - memoirs of Mr Blair - he's been doing the rounds of interviews to try and sell his book. I thinks he's a good chap and tried his best for the country, but will other people think this, I doubt it - people generally like to have a go.
Fourth - Stephen Hawkin - he thinks that science could explain the creation of the universe and that the big bang was an inevitable consequence of the laws of Physics. Seeing as no one can accurately describe the laws of Physics, including Mr Hawkin, and seeing as what no one can describe how the laws of physics started then I doubt he is right, I still rather believe in the God who created the laws in the first place.

Not even late summer
And I need the heating
But I can't
well, just because.
So I have:
Hot bowl of custard
The laptop is very warm
because it's been on and on my lap all day.
Good job I need no more children!

I'm Back!
You can guess from the photos
where I've been
first is me and my bro'
then him givin' away his girl
and then what the bride and groom Fink
about the matter.
