You shut your mouth!

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

We have just returned from Doncaster, where Lindsey and I went to the Morrissey Gig at Doncaster Dome! Now I am not really a Smiths or Morrissey fan, I was listening to Marillion in the eighties, Lindseys the Morrissey fan!

All I can say it was Absolutely Fantastic, I cannot describe the buzz, I am feeling, I am on a high! I know they are some children that read this blog, so I will try and not write any expletives, but if you know me, you know the normal phrase that comes before Fantastic, I would normally use!

Doncaster Dome is a strange venue, picture a sports hall, or school gym! It is very small, but upfront and personal it was! After all these years Morrissey can still rock, his band was excellent as well, good sounds, good band, Fantastic. I think everybody coming away from that gig felt something very special, a strange eclectic mix of people, from all generations. I spoke to one young lad who was born in 1989, he did not remember The Smiths! They split before he was born!

God Bless you Morrissey, it was a pleasure, I am looking forward to the next time!

Visiting friends in Otley, West Yorkshire (via tropical fish shop of course!)

Sunday, September 4th, 2005

I had hoped to attend the Otley Aquatic Society OPEN SHOW & AUCTION today, because I was visting Otley, West Yorkshire, but then I noticed the show is held at Wortley High School Swallow Crescent Leeds, so I didn’t have the time to route via Leeds, as the Auction was starting at 1.30pm. This will have to be an event I pencil on the calendar for next year.

Whilst in Otley I did get my “fish fix” by visting Waterscapes located in the Stephen H Smiths Garden Centre. An excellent range of tropical fish and Tropica plants on display, I especially liked the Leiarius pictus catfish, they had three small 4″ fish for 18 GBP each, but resisted the strong desire to own a large catfish again. These grow very large, a good example here at but are excellent catfish, and one of my favourites. But I certainly don’t have eight foot tank space in the fish house at present!
