Thu 12 Aug 2010 08:18:16 GMT+1 Big Sister I've just realised that Hugh Sykes could, in extremis, be called upon to stand in for Christopher Douglas (the writer and comedian) on the Wednesday 6.30 p.m. slot. When we hear him on PM, he's much lighter, but this morning on the Today programme, where he was somehow more sombre and serious, I was struck by the resemblance.I love Ed Reardon, and I love Hugh's reports, so no offence at all intended in this observation.

Wed 11 Aug 2010 12:22:22 GMT+1 The Intermittent Horse Why have the entries under the Categories tab been culled? The ones left hardly qualify as "some of the popular topics this blog covers" Wed 11 Aug 2010 12:02:28 GMT+1 mittfh Since the Blog will be three years old in five days time, I wondered when we'd passed the 1,000 days mark. Apparently that was on May 12th. June 6th may have been significant to some, if only they'd noticed it.Now of course, new blog entries are only added Mon - Fri. So you could argue that the 1,000th blog day will be 1,400 calendar days away from when the blog started. Which will be Thursday 16th June 2011. And 1,024 blog days is Tuesday 19th July 2011.Well, calculating that lot's more entertaining than trying to write a JEQ (Job Evaluation Questionnaire) Appeal...

Mon 09 Aug 2010 11:39:16 GMT+1 GotToTheEnd Walked to the bridge and watched the iron brown water rush in under the metal span.Then jogged - across the wooden structure and along the Mawddach Estuary to PenaenpoolFrom toll bridge,%20Barmouth,%20Bridge%20&%20Cadair%20Idris.jpgto toll bridge miles. As the bloke who used to live upstairs and have a fag outside the front porch and whose kids used to practice triple jump along the wooden floors above our heads used to say of his two children'It feels like a lot, lot more.'Someone said there is only one thing better in all thew world than the walk from the rail bridge to the toll bridge and that is the walk back.Especially if you've jogged there. (Did about 5 of the 7 back)Then we saw swan and heron, both paired. The leading heron stretches his elegant frame enquiringly into a question mark, wondering who it was photographing him from the trees.And we see cattle who had left their grass lands which are laid out like a Japanese curvature garden, the pattern cut out by rivulets and mud crevices, They had walked onto the extensive sands to get to the pure water of the main flow of the river.Most seemed content in the late afternoon sunshine, sitting and standing, looking at the water. But one, like a bull, walks purposively off left towards the bank, roaring every few strides. The echo down the valley was very loud. Perhaps he was testing it as we test the acoustic when we visit quiet country churches and her contralto voice caresses Ave Maria or the Erisay Love Lilt. Walking and jogging on, the view of the rail bridge was shut down to us. As in an old fashioned camera shutter, the opposite bank and the wooded eyot moved towards each other by parallax.Home and on to the Beach and into the sea. At about 7.30. a swim, more total immersion paddling. A wonderful feeling of weightlessness. You wonder why Archimedes ever got out of the bath.
