Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

GoingTits Up for cancer research

(viewed 816 times)
Just wanted to give Dhamaka's (Carole Edrich's) Cancer reseach's Blog a mention.

Over the years she has been one of Moblog's main motivators in getting the community to get together to give help to moboggers in need of support.

Dhamaka has also benefited from the support of the Moblog community while undergoing treatment for breast cancer (for which she is very grateful).

Dhamaka was interviewed by the Daily Telegraph last Saturday and told her story starting with her diagnosis of breast cancer and ending with her looping the loop for the 'goingtitsup' breast cancer charity (oh, yes, and finding a little romance along the way)

Poznan for Alan (Moblog Stylee)

(viewed 665 times)
I never did meet Alan but I have met Viv, Beth and Helen. The Dawson women are a special breed, strong, caring, generous and with a wicked sense of humour.
I am sure Alan had a lot to do in how the girls turned out.
This little video is a tribute to Alan (City til I die)

With love to the family

MOBLOG Update

(viewed 911 times)
Time to catch up with Moblog
After many months away.
It’s good to see some old faces
That’s really made my day!

My verses have not improved
My rhymes are quite appalling
My camera’s still in my bag
Despite it’s Moblog calling .....

A quick update on family:
Dave has retired:)
I am still a wage slave :(
First Born is training to be a science teacher :)
No.1 Son has just started a funded Phd partly based in CERN Switzerland :)

Sprocket's Hula 'oopsing

(viewed 1038 times)
Have been following Sprocket's and Dhamaka's February photo a day challenge. I was most taken with Sprocket's Day 11 Makes you Happy ...... 0:)

Sprocket was in his garden
Giving it his all
When Mogblog the moggie
Decided to make a call ......

* watch video

Sprocket has learnt his lesson
(He reaches for his jacket)
When it comes to Hula hoops
Stick to the crisp packet.

Well in keeping with tradition I had to add some dodgy doggerel :)

Alex .... and the Band plays on .....

(viewed 2599 times)
A little late this year, can you spot the new band member?
For those new to Moblog:
This is the link to Alex’s moblog http://moblog.co.uk/blogs.php?show=7364

Link to the original Band post http://moblog.co.uk/view.php?id=219653

Alex was the son of a very good friend of mine who sadly died from Leukaemia at the age of 20. It was he who got me involved in Moblog. He blogged the progress of his illness from his hospital bed, with such good humour and interesting medical detail, that he gained a large and very supportive following of mobloggers from all over the globe. The Moblog community was a great help in keeping up his spirits at a very difficult time.
