It is the same sort of idea just significantly cheaper and more hackable. AS a kind of addendum I contacted the manufacturers politely raising the point that I had got the old model remote, they're sending me a new one FOC and free shipping, very impressed.

Another day, another adventure. Isn't espalier just the most wonderful word?

Much better looking and sounding than pollarding.

I am so going back next year. With gaiters.

Nettlebed Folk Club is aces and skill - I went there quite a lot in the year or so after my husband died. A friend of mine is a member, and his wife doesn't like folk music much, so he used to take me along for company. Among several others, I saw Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy there, and Fairport Convention (more than once, and with different members alongside other people). Fabulous evenings, all.

John Jones played with Dil Davies, the drummer from Oysterband, Al Scott, who is Oysterband's producer (on lead guitar), Rowan Godel for duets, Tim Cotterell on fiddle, and Benji Kirkpatrick, of Bellowhead fame, on bouzouki and banjo (though not at the same time). The Reluctant Ramblers, his walking band, has a somewhat fluid membership.

The show was awesome. I'm writing that up next.

I have decided to overthrow capitalism by writing a novella about monsters. Can't think why this hasn't been tried before, really.

Anyway, "Till You Drop" is available FREE until the end of August as an e-book from: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/213070

It can be downloaded from that site in all the usual formats, and if you haven't got an e-reader you can get it in PDF or plain text for reading on your computer.

Ooh thanks Mat! I'll definitely download that one tomorrow. I enjoyed your alternative-future book, whose title escapes me right now and I can't be bothered to actually go upstairs and find it on the bookcase...

Acts of Destruction - that was it!
