[blogosphere] the power of friendship

With ten minutes to go on this one hour internet time I'm allowed at Hull library [and they are very nice people here], I've just checked my email and not yet the post below and have to make a statement.

I don't feel alone with that sort of practical advice and encouragement. I thank you from the bottom of the heart and now, to make you thoroughly sick, I'm going to celebrate this by going out and having fish, chips and mushy peas.

The blogosphere works, it's wonderful and the moment I can get a breather and set up basically, I'm turning round and helping you in return. No doubt on earth about that.

Thanks again.

Proper post this evening.

Bon appetit James! I agree - the blogosphere does work. Your own experiences are a prime example of the friendships that develop through it

That's wonderful, James but who the heck eats mushy peas????Next you will be saying that your fish of choice is plaice and not cod.

Your spirit is truly something.

I thought everyone in Britain did take out chicken vindaloo nowadays. But then you are in Hull.


JMB- The national dish is a curry and nan bread.

Nice to see you in such a cheery modd, James. Must be the weather. :)

I have this strange man staying in my house. Rocky appears to have accepted him.

Fish, chips and mushy peas for tea, and red wine (I know it should be white wine).

Making blackberry jam later...

Dragonstar, Jams,Anon, JMB, Uber and JHL - not a bad day overall. Better than yesterday.

Thing was - some nice things happened although still far away on the official level. But hey, can't have everything.

I certainly eat fish and chips and mushy peas. Beautiful! I may have some tomorrow. Which chippy did you go to?

The blogosphere is a wonderful place or after this post, perhaps that should be plaice?

Canines always know best ;-)

You are a man after my own heart. Red wine with Fish and Chips is the best!


Things take time, but that is good to know :-)

I'm so glad that you're back "home" and also many thanks are due to your landlord. Well done, JHL!

James, you are a good man. You deserve a great outcome.

Haven't been over to see you in a while James, glad to see you're enjoying life.

Enjoy the mushy peas!
