Everything's coming up Fool!

Haven't done my post-gig LFT yet, was going to give it a couple of days and check tomorrow morning. But not had any pings yet, so that's a decent start!

I’ve done it every day since the gig since I’ve been back at work just don’t want any chance of further spread … although I may have gone slightly early for the lfts to catch it , and I told a few colleagues I was off to the gig … one said I was absolutely mad for going … although I very much expect that she never goes to gigs anyway 🙂

Regarding houses - will you be getting a report on the new house that you have put in an accepted bid on? You ought to if you were considering saving money in that area. Unless you know about construction / houses etc, that is. If you do get a report, I can have a look at it if you are in any doubt about something within the report.

Thanks yog will definately bare you  in mind  when I do … I’m very fortunate in that regard as I had some very decent advice from a couple of other efest members along with a bit of a feeling that the last place had just a few 2 many issues  🙂 very worthwhile to get the survey though which I will be doing once more

@Yoghurt on a Stick sounds like a big drinkey woo is needed!! 
Well done you!! 

Cheers. It actually is a big deal because my mate has faced corporate negligence for so many years that he has told me that it has, and remains to affect his mental health. He told me that it is evidenced in document form from a while after the 'happening' of his purchase of the property. And believe me, that is a 'happening'. It would appear that he kept on mentioning to his doctor throughout the years that the damp issue from next door was doing his head in. And having seen the situation I can say 'and so it would too'. and who are his neighbours? A very large (and, in my opinion) totally inept and unaccountable corporate entity, which goes under the guise of a sociably responsible housing association. They take government funding and achieve charitable status, but are exempt from Freedom of Information requests. There is no transparency. There is ineptness though. It would be fair to say that there exists lashings of ineptness.

Excellent work, as long as I have lived the housing market and associated problems have caused misery. 

Have you seen some of the new build properties, and the fucking state of them? I mean |I'm all for total equality etc, but one has to draw the line at employing registered blind brickie's! lol

 At least up here when an offer is accepted that usually is it.  

Yes, so I am told by a friend off these boards (Hello Glasto-Worker).

We once again have a pub in Pilton. Well half of one.  The Crown has opened its garden ( not inside)  for beer and food.

Hurrah

That's great news for locals, and any tourists that may be around. It's a good start.

It also allows me to partially plagiarise a 'ditty';

Half a pub, philosophically, must, ipso facto, half not be.

But half the pub has got to be vis-à-vis, its entity.

D'you see?

I recall seeing a mate sniff glue when I was about 16 or 17. It was at his house and his parents had gone on holiday and there was no booze available. I watched him pour the strong glue into an old (then new) Tesco bag like this one;

He then proceeded to put one of the4 two handles over each of his ears, so that he kind of resembled a horse with it's food bag attached to it's nose. Then he started laughing a bit and walking around the back garden. Then he walked straight into his parents fish pond and had to be helped out. This was in the days before 24 hour shops selling alcohol. we'd been to the pub but not bought any booze for after the pub. well, we were only 16 or 17, and you learn as you go along, don't you!

up here the  bag of choice was an empty pickled onion crisp bag. Horrible habit but the  popularisation of buckfast has taken over from gluesniffing as the choice of the ned.

Fortunately I've never deliberately sniffed glue, or felt the desire to. However, when i used to work for the 'man' I worked from home for a long period of years. There was a small bedroom in the then house that I used as my office. However, I also begain to use it as a sort of art studio too. Much of 'my' art uses all sorts of glue and adhesives. I once had a tin of petroleum based 'sticky stuff' that I'd never opened in that room. We (my wife and I) sort of had a friend who was a qualified anaesthetist. Anyway, he came into my office one day to have a look around at my art on the walls, he spotted the tin of adhesive, took it off the shelf, read the contents, and told me never to use it in any confined environment. He went on to tell me that I would 'seriously' run the risk of a serious medical fault if I were to use it in that room - which I probably wasn't going to do, as even I knew it was mental stuff.

Anyway, those other glues in that confined room must have sent me mad on several occasions. I still have (and probably always will) a complete array of glue's for different 'problems'. I've even got 5 tubes of black adhesive that will withstand temperatures of about 260 degrees, or some such. 

So there you have it - my glue story. Which is now stuck in your mind.

I'll get me Pritt Stick!

Really enjoyed seeing the documentary film Summer of Soul (Recently rediscovered film of the 1969 Harlem Culture Festival). 
 

Standout performances a young Stevie Wonder, amazing talent playing a full on drum solo and keyboards, and Nina Simone, a really powerful presence. 
 

Recommended for anyone into soul, blues, gospel and 60s music.

Really looking forward to seeing this. I'd never even heard of the Harlem festival until last year, and that was when discussing this film. Amazing (but let's be honest, not that amazing) that this never became the cultural touchstone that Woodstock did

Once I saw that information I had to look it up to verify if it were true or not. It is! 

Hi Yog, yeah I had a read of the full story after I saw your post. Excellent stuff, I like how he blamed “the lousy drink”.

An old fella in my local always likes to advise everyone that “ the drink is a long apprenticeship “ especially if they are hungover.

Very wise words I always think.

Hello Comfy,

I like that quote. I'm still serving my time at this end. In fact I have at this moment just poured myself a G & T. Probably too early for most, but it's almost a daily occurrence for me. I believe that they call the likes of me a 'functioning alcoholic'. 

I really like this quote by Finley Peter Dunne;

'Alcohol is necessary for a man so that he can have a good opinion of himself, undisturbed be the facts'.
