A Mixed Review

A few years ago, I set out to watch every Best Picture winner dating back to The Godfather (1972).

Wakefield to Towton. Chivalry dies on the fields of blood.  After the king was captured at Northampton it fell to the Queen and Henry Beaufort, 3rd Duke of Somerset, to prepare a new strength of arms.

What do we want? When do we want it? Now!   We grow up wanting things. As a child, the list was endless. I had a strong desire to find my way around where I lived. Seacombe was a collection of terraces with the promenade on one side. The prom and beach were real adventure playgrounds, […]

Today was a really long day and I’m really tired so this is just going to be a quick journal summarizing how I managed to walk 31000 steps today, which was basically 21+km. It happens. If you walk everywhere in Oxford you might die a little bit, but it’s very manageable. But also now my […]

While I have primarily focused on legislation around sand mining, legislators in both the Texas House and Senate have filed bills that address other aspects of the Harvey disaster.

Perspectives

I have not posted as often as I’d like recently, even though I have several new posts working on, as I have been bogged down with project and publication deadlines (and a nasty bout of flu) – not complaining about anything, except for the latter. So instead of a new post, I am presenting another […]

Life is a journey, come join us for the ride...

We left Hogsback before 08:00 on a Saturday morning. I remember this because Lizette was miffed at missing the local Parkrun and whenever this trip comes up in conversation, Lizette’s ongoing disappointment clearly lives on. Parkrun, for those who don’t know, is a world-wide movement of donor-and-volunteer supported Saturday morning 5km and 2km runs in […]
