When does one use a capital letter...

Sometimes, I just cannot believe what I'm reading!

Apparently, 'full stops' are a sign of 'aggression' in a written message, and snowflakes are feeling hurt when they see one!

I suppose the antidote is to bawl all the words to 'Rule Britannia', including as many full stops as possible, and think of England!

(A 'full stop' is nothing to do with a 'glottal stop', so beloved by wokes and sjws on the awful BBC)...

Rock prog for Raedwald...

I don't know if this will work, but this morning, and still feeling a bit lonely without the usual post from our friend, a clicker came up on my PC screen to tell me that the Prog Rock Stream was playing.

It was my favourite album by Peter Gabriel - the soundtrack from the film 'Birdy'. There's a track on the album which has a secret which I will divulge one day - and I'm being serious for once - but as it was playing, (couldn't sleep, and it was 4:00am), I mused that while already missing our old mate, the music fitted the feeling. So I clicked the live chat, and away we went! While I'm used to blogging as you've found out with tiresome expectation over the years, I don't Tweet or Bookface, so live chat isn't really my way to communicate, but somehow, our old chum, up there, said just 'goferit Scrobs'!

So, for better or worse, here's the music which the site-owner has put together for Raeders, and I hope that it'll be taken in the spirit of trying to reclaim a loss which we never can do, but may just settle a few sad minds.

If it all works, just click the button and see - if it doesn't, then I'm sorry, but I tried...

VJ Day, but the woke BBC, failing again...

Today is VJ Day, when we will all be celebrating the hard-fought victory in the East. But the weedy BBC have failed yet again, in their 'mission' to try and be whatever is the woke term these days. 

Rudyard Kipling was an inspiration to so many people, and his stories have given so much pleasure to schoolchildren and their parents all over the world. 

His home, isn't that far from here and thousands of visitors revel in such an important place where history was made and is still revered.

A gentleman on another website showed this magnificent rendition of 'The Road to Mandalay', by the great Charles Dance, and I can assure you, that you'll weep at the end of it all. The awful BBC's wet under-managers, or whatever they're called, have rolled over at the whim of some singer, who thinks that 'The Road to Mandalay' has 'racist' undertones.


Just listen to this and see where, as usual nowadays, the blasted tax-payer-funded bunch in W1A are just not getting it...

'Bye Sue, from Campton...

Scrobs had to go to yet another funeral last week.

It was for a dear cousin, who'd ended her life with an awful stroke, and left her family in total distress.

Not that Scrobs ever believes that life is interminable, but the trip to the Crem, was also part of a 'visit' to say hello to uncles, aunts and the rest, and as it was probably going to be the last time I ever went there, I had to take some Sweet Peas for Uncle Ken and Auntie Nip, as they were such a fabulous Aunt and Uncle. I tried to find my grandparents' grave in Campton, but to no avail!

This week has been a bit of a bugger, I haven't felt like this for many years, but to lose such a close relative, is becoming more apparent, and upsetting these days.

Bollocks - life moves on I suppose...

Professional quandary...

Modern cities and the data dividend: Three key principles ...

An engineer dies and reports to the Pearly Gates. Saint Peter checks his dossier and, not seeing his name there, accidentally sends him to Hell.

It doesn't take long before the engineer becomes rather dissatisfied with the level of comfort in Hell. He soon begins to design and build improvements.

Shortly thereafter, Hell has air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators. Needless to say, the engineer is a pretty popular guy.

One day, God calls Satan and says: "So, how are things in Hell?"

Satan replies: "Hey, things are going great.

We've got air conditioning, flush toilets, and escalators.

And there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."

"What!" God exclaims. "You've got an engineer? That's a mistake - he should never have been sent to Hell. Send him to me."

"Not a chance," Satan replies: "I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him!"

God insists: "Send him back or I'll sue."

Satan laughs uproariously and answers: "Yeah, right.

And where are you going to get a lawyer?”
