Aussies and Kiwis

Looking forward to the 2 big events of the summer - forget your Wimbledon, Ascot and Open golf, it has to be the Ashes and the Lions in NZ. This Aussie blogger seems a good whiner, and this Kiwi one. Edgbaston on 7th August and Twickers on 4th June! Adam and Wayne in good voice...

Definitely feeling better

Slept a lot the last 36 hours - airtubes clear, feeling much better. Looking forward to getting back on track with paper for info, with bid for EC, with spam workshop tomorrow.
Found a reference to my 2001 Barcelona speech on mobile content.
Saw '20,000 leagues under the sky' last night, Patrick Hamilton novel adapted for BBC4, unremittingly honest and heart-breaking. It felt very contemporary as well.

Japan end-May for Creative Commons - but am I really looking for Scarlett's pout? Posted by Hello

Flu be gone - and Rand be come?

Left the house this AM feeling OK-ish, still got a cold but flu abated. And I had a shock - I can actually smell the scent of spring! So my nose has resumed functions. Bless Amoxycillin!
In the fog of war/flu, had good Rand meetings Tuesday, beginning to get a feel for how much pie-eating/how much thinktanking is involved. I think it'll be OK - Cambridge here we come?
Meeting Marten Botterman at IoD to cross some 'i's Wednesday. Monday to London for some DTI spam stuff.
Two recent films that I enjoyed - 'In good company', very quirky, one for the pie-eaters. 'Downfall' - shocking and brilliant, every German and European should watch it. Hitler's dog's death unexpectedly shocking, Goebbels family very von Trapp.
Still blogging away on www.ofcomwatch.co.uk - keep looking!

Home thoughts from home...

Beautiful morning despite the frost, walked across The Parks with cricketers' fielding practice underway, thought of The Ashes - 7 August Edgbaston, I'll be there - with Ad and Wayne.
Barcelona on Tuesday - Sitges Monday first - and rabbit Wednesday! Marvellous!
Liddlepool now on for 4 May - see Mattie performing with the Philharmonic.
