While checking that I had not missed any of my candidates’ demises, I made an interesting discovery.
Sir Bernard Crick, famed academic and expert on George Orwell, whose biography of said author is a great book which I read many years ago, recently died. He was also active in the work of the Labour Party, [...]
2008 is ending with a flourish, as Harold Pinter goes to that big Birthday Party in the sky. I’m grateful for my fifth point this year. Only four more days to go but the weather is cold…

As Mark was on 2009′s list, I will bow to public opinion and replace him with President Elect Barak Obama. It’s an outside bet, for a first year [...]
I’m still very much enjoying my BeBook. Given that I was feeling poorly with some sort of viral head cold – move your head and it hurts, don’t move your head and it hurts – I spent more time than usual with my BeBook reading Daniel Defoe’s – Robinson Crusoe. It’s enjoyable, spoilt only by [...]
