Cargo Fleet… Oh yes.

Cargo Fleet club strikes fear into the hearts of all covers bands. Imagine taking a venue, putting it upstairs, putting a fire escape onto the back of it and then making sure the ground at the bottom is just rough enough to snag the wheels of all your flight cases and you’re pretty much bangContinue reading “Cargo Fleet… Oh yes.”

A visit from a friend

You may know him online as Alternalife or Rockinrubber but I know him by his real name. We met up yesterday and he not only joined me for my camping trip but he also brought up some of his latex gear. I even got to try one item on! It was a bit tight asContinue reading “A visit from a friend”

December will be magic again.

Even in these hard times we can all be assured that December will be a little change.

Sadly it wasContinue reading “The End of the Weekend that Was – St Patrick’s at The RS Bar”

My day yesterday was a latex day… Rewind a few days… Being forgetful me, I had totally forgotten that I had absolutely noContinue reading “Going out in latex”

Hawking around?

Our across the road neighbour came across this morning – it appears he had some sort of bird of prey stuck and tangled in a tree behind his house. When Hannah and I got over there we found a Harris Hawk, complete with jessies and ring, had become tangled in a hawthorn tree. We managedContinue reading “Hawking around?”
