Carl Sagan…

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this; if we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. The bamboozle has captured us. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

Those Pesky Voices…

For a while now, the wanderlust has been rumbling in the background. It’s starting to get a little too loud now…

The grass is always greener, I am more aware of that after living in Canada for a few years, but, the world is too large and interesting a place to hang around for too long.

So, various lines have been cast, now we wait to see which destination bites first….

Speaking of which, the sea. I’m still waiting for my first catch. This fishing is a little more frustrating than I gave it credit for. Good job I’m not relying on it for survival….

The weather here is still good. I’d hardly call it a heatwave, as we would be led to believe. It’s warm, or hot yes, but a heatwave? Right…. it’s the summer, isn’t this what it does in the summer? I remember many a lazy summer on the beach shrimping with friends every day after school, cooking them in a kettle in various beach huts and devouring them with Coke and crisps. Meaning, a warm June/July… how quickly we forget….

I’ve almost finished 2 websites for clients. If you want me to set up a site, or WordPress blog, drop me a line, lordboom [at] theboomerverse [dot] com

JB, Sea Fisherman

Sea fishing, never done it, but I thought it time to have a go, after my old man was over for a visit and came with a sea bass he had caught, which was delicious.

IMG_0422.jpgNeedless to say, I caught bugger all, it was bit rough, so it was more a trial run and casting practice session than anything. As soon as the wind drops, the sea calms and the sun comes out, I’ll be back down to the shoreline. Mackerel and sea bass to come….

Saturday Night…

It was a fine evening for some fire twirling, a few beers or 3 and some great music….

SaturdayNight

Despite what many would have you believe, the UK isn’t all bad. As the summer finally arrives, beer gardens are as tempting as they ever were. Turn the telly off, call a friend and go visit one.

Pay Attention…

“When your views on the world and your intellect are being challenged and you begin to feel uncomfortable because of a contradiction you’ve detected that is threatening your current model of the world.… pay attention. You are about to learn something.”
– William H. Drury, Jr.  (1921-1992)
