The language used here is only allowed with no media and political outrage given the protected status of the individual concerned, from my side of the colour chart such language would have consequences. This growing desire for a separate existence is fine by me but I've a feeling this....living apart....has been tried before, now where was that?

I was going to see this house later on in the week but agent just called to say its gone under offer. Its a nice solid house and as smaller than here it is what I'm looking for. It came with 3-28 acres which gave me options for future usage and was closer to Chester than where I am now which is something I am also keen on. It was a bit early for me to buy given I'm still working here but it is a good house....the one that got away? I hope not.

Inbetween rain showers,storms and mini hurricanes I'm trying to cut stone so as I can get an early start on work come spring. I'm still planning in the medium term to sell up here but plenty of work to do on various houses here before then. I enjoy the masonry work and have tons to cut over next few weeks but roof work and drains....urgh!

Its been a tough old year for my Mum with the usual disabilities of age slowing her and sadly Alzheimers playing its dirty tricks stealing bit by bit her world ,but she is a game old girl and is giving it her best. Consequently 2017 has been very trying and exhausting for all of us here at OTW with plans on hold and energy depleted both physical and emotional and I guess next year will serve up more of the same. But just for a week or two we are immersing ourselves into a family Christmas that for us will celebrate all that is good about family and the season.....family for us is everything.

As part of a compilation album, cherry red records are releasing the first single my old band Ellery Bop ever released. As a first effort by a 19 year old me it is not too bad considering I could neither play,sing or write a tune, somewhat of a drawback in a musician I imagine. It means that I get paid a couple of hundred quid for something I would happily have done for free as when I recorded the track I was at uni trying desperately to figure out how never to have a job plus my kids get to laugh....a lot!

Things have as of late been a bit hectic and so my blogging has been rather light something I do plan to put right. I have been too busy even to read many of the regular blogs I visit but among the few political ones I read such as zman,worstall,Takimag and powerline I have tried to keep up and comment when so moved. I don't comment often but I occasionally find the racism and anti Semitism in the comments enraging as they for me detract from otherwise educating and amusing conversations that move forward conservative and republican thought and tactics. As result I am usually called a 'snowflake' which if they bothered to check out my blog they would quickly realise was stupid or a Jewish stooge. I'm not bothered about any of this as I know the writers comprise of cheeto eating fat wannabe Nazis or twisted old blokes unhappy with their lot. Me.....healthy wealthy and with great family and friends and as the old joke goes 'saving up to be Jewish!' so if I offend anybody I can only say tough and if you want to find me.....feel free, always happy for a full on conversation.

Rose McGowan the self appointed leader of the digital lynch mob cleansing our beloved (not) entertainments business is apparently in a little trouble for drug possession, something she puts down naturally to a conspiracy. I for one couldn't care less what Hollywood lowlifes do to other Hollywood wierdos but I do care about statements like this.......have a great career miss McGowan.
