More
My Thai wife may need a residency card to live here after Brexit - nobody really knows - and part of the application process is the provision of biometric data, but what a palaver, and a waste of time!

Are You Reading A Book Or Story?

9/3/2018

I was talking to someone who said that he was reading my book on his tablet. Being a bit of a pedant myself, I had to stop myself from saying something, not least though because I didn't want to stem his adoration of my work...

O’Brien’s – The Community Pub in the Centre of Barry

8/31/2018
More
O'Brien's - The Community Pub in the Centre of Barry - has a terrible reputation among people who don't use it, but is it unjustified? People who don't use O'Brien's seem to have a dreadful fear of the place!

Night In Annwn Audiobook

8/25/2018
More
A Night In Annwn Audiobook It has taken me most of this year so far to get my first audiobook - A Night In Annwn - read as an audiobook, but the process is now complete and you can listen to the first fifteen minutes below free of charge. It does take quite a long time, but this is not really anyone's fault. Rather it is a completely different process and the author has to learn the new role of Director. The Director The Director, not unlike as you see in film credits, is in charge of...

When a Book Costs Less Than a Drink…

8/17/2018
More
When a Book Costs Less Than a Drink... I will admit it straight from the off! I am a writer with an axe to grind and I cannot understand people who complain that books are too expensive. Most books, in the form of ebooks, cost less than the price of a drink! My ebooks cost an average of 8p or 10c per 1,600 words, which means that a coffee costing £2.40 is the equivalent of a 48,000-word book! Let's call it 50,000 words... because many writers use that as the norm these days. Mine are usually...

#FBPE – The Anti-Brexit Twitter Hashtag

8/5/2018
More
#FBPE - The Anti-Brexit Twitter Hashtag Have you ever heard of #FBPE ? No, I hadn't until recently either, but apparently #FBPE is the anti-Brexit hashtag that is sweeping the country amongst those who can't see the sense in leaving the EU. Well, to quote the Animals, "And, God, I know, I'm one..." I have tried and tried, but cannot see any good reason for getting out... I really can't; whether it happens or not. The only plausible argument that I have heard for leaving is 'to return power...

Spamming YouTube

8/4/2018
More
Spamming YouTube YouTube is owned by Google, which I will admit right up front is not one of my favourite companies. In my opinion, Google behaves like most bad, bossy fathers, demanding that you do as they say, not as they do, if you want to do business with them. I also suspect that they are are a data-collection agency for the CIA and would sell out dissidents in any country at a dime a time. Hey, but that is just my opinion... although there are probably a few who would agree with me....

Water Supply

7/31/2018
More
Water Supply I didn't realise it until today, but the local water supply was cut off five days ago. Please don't assume that I don't wash often, it isn't that, we have a water tank with a capacity of a thousand litres and an automatic pump attached to it, so while other households have been without a water supply for the last three or four days days, it has only just hit us. When I bought that tank ten years ago, I had calculated that it would last us five days, or maybe even a week, if the...

Being Ill in the Countryside

7/31/2018
More
Being Ill in the Countryside A lump has been growing on my back for the last week or two. I haven't paid it much attention because it didn't hurt and I have had a non-malignant lymphoma removed before. The surgeon who did that in the UK twelve years ago, said that I could get another one there again or somewhere else in the future, so I put it down to that. However, this one burst last night, so I suppose it is some kind of boil instead. My wife suggested going to hospital to get it sorted...

Fourth of July

7/31/2018
More
Fourth of July From the thirteenth of September, 2004 to the fourth of July, 2005, we slept on my mother-in-law's floor in the small, rice-growing village where we live in northern Thailand, while we were waiting for our own house to be completed. However, after a party at a friend's that finished after midnight on the third, instead of going back to Mum, we slept on our own floor. You could say that the fourth of July, 2005, was our own Independence Day. There were no windows or doors yet...
