smiles from this week…..

Group cycling, aka spinning is a reflection of the fall…..but it’s working for me in a love-hate kind of way. The opposite of transformation is probably transaction. And we’re made for so much more than this…… A church that tries to recruit, offering the details of 69 planned management mtgs per year, will understandably struggle to attract Acts 2 […]


what you see, right?! One of my local bucket list things has come to pass. Eating with family members at Hawksmoor Spitalfields was their kind treat to us, and even for the non-beef eating Julie, all times too. Food this good, requires recording right!?  Doesnt the goodness of this make you just salivate!? Hawksmoor is worth a visit.

STW 1.ix.2013

Proverbs 20 v 28 was part of my morning mana. “A faithful person will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished.” Spoil yourself to ten-tracks of musical goodness with Foy Vance in his new album. Best of the year. Sometimes ‘love’ means cooking vegetarian moussaka…….there was a meat supplement […]

What are you reading? what would you sugguest […]

a terrible brilliance

I don’t read enough novels, according to my friends and colleagues! So in a small augmentation to my pattern……I got reading something different. The Terrible Thing that happened to Barnaby Brocket by John Boyne is more-than your average children’s book. Its a 4-star goodie!   Here is a moving tale of difference and redemption. It’s pacey, engaging […]

some of my Christmas…

……in reply to my cyberpal supersimbo’s invitation, this was some of my Christmas. It involved far too much pace, perhaps not enough quiet and medium amounts of gluttony! More home-making adventures with Julie: and real-tree goodness. The three-meat Christmas roast was particularly good! Just-about recovery from all the pre-Christmas services: overdosing particularly on singing ‘Silent […]
