A rather strange chess set from a local museum.


I just like the notion of the utilisation of animals as chess pieces as opposed to people. Appealed to my whimsical side.

Following on from my post yesterday (the place where I blog from), here is my food cupboard.

Canned goods.

Well, one of them. Pretty much a resource where meals can be conjoured up at the drop of a hat. One is never too far away from a tasty dish if you have some pasta, chick peas or a tin of tuna.

As inspire by this post of Mr Paul Cornell who suggested here that us bloggers/collectors/readers/people should post pics of where we blog from


Mine is mostly here, unless I am travelling around with my laptop. You can't see the other side of the room but here is another (smaller image) to give you an idea.

A Doctor Who theme for today's image....

Linda and Dalek

There is a reason for this. In memory of writer Craig Hinton, some really talented people have gotten together and published this fitting tribute to him. I only met Craig half a dozen times as he frequented the book store I once worked but those times were most memorable. Craig was always warm, friendly and generous. He'll be missed by many people. Afterall, this was the man who invented the term "fanwank".

The publication can be purchased here.

Proceeds will be going to the British Heart Foundation which is a charity I myself support as my father was taken suddenly in 2005 due to heart failure.

This is the perfect Xmas gift for any Whovian in your life/family.

Linda always ensures I have a bottle of this as soon as I run out.


I would like a change of aftershave at some point though!
