Hello there - apropos your comment about my own regarding UK
intelligence & diplomatic services. I and members of my immediate
family are in the higher vulnerability category and it seems totally
legitimate to be curious about how a government served by the
two most experienced and well informed services in history should,
even now, still be playing catch-up in its dealings with this disease.
Add to that the long historical connection between this country and
the alleged source of infection and it looks like the Sunday Times
article now causing waves and a fierce rebuttal from, No 10 has

Thanks for dropping in once again Starfish. I have to say I'm detecting a little tongue in cheek element regarding the pip. It took some dedication to grow you know! :-))

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on 'Complicit'.
It was a long long time ago, but I'm pretty sure it was only £10.
I think I chose SA as it was the easiest place to emigrate to, and to get back from.

Thanks for your kind observations on eleven eleven. the older we get the more permutations flood into the mind for the reasons of past events in history and the consequences of them K.E.D.

Hi Starfish! Glad you liked the book shop. It's a pity so many of them are clsing down.

HI again. I googled the Farley poem, so here it is. So now you've got all the top poems about the Year of the Big FReeze!
Thu 14th Nov 2013 09:29
Hi Starfish Thanks for the kind comments on Annus MIrabilis. Glad you spoted the Larkin connection. I did it on purpose. Both poems are about 1963 and start of with a Beatles reference and 'problems' with girls. Paul Farley has also done a gone one about that year, but he focuses on the death of Sylvia PLath. If you want o try to find it, it's called 1th February, 1963 and is a collection Called THe Ice Age.

The cat poem is a true story. Came home from work one day and was making a cuppa, looking out through the kitchen window onto the street. Our neighbours cat had a stretch, had a good look around and went to sleep under their tree. Later on various screams and tears were heard and I asked next door what was going on and they said the lady opposite came home and found her cat dead curled up under the tree. I prefer to think, romantically perhaps, that the cat knew the end was nigh and took his leave of life in a calm feline way. Not a bad way to go. Much better than the poor old field mouse . . .

When I wrote "Cottage Sleaze" the word "beautiful" didn't seem the most apt description! You will gather that not all the lines are my own. (And, No, I did not do a lot of research for this).
Fri 27th Sep 2013 00:02
Apologies Starfish, I stand corrected!
Tue 24th Sep 2013 01:08
Hey Starfish, thanks for looking in on 'poem for a friend'
Like Jonnie I'd like to see more in your biography (not thats there's much in mine)but I am nosy ,do I do see a sort of American influence in your work . .?
Tue 24th Sep 2013 00:52
Many thanks for your kind comments on "The Masterly Strategy..."
Not my usual genre but I felt rather strongly about the lack of action which seemed to be the public mood.
(I have reverted to type in my latest offering!)

thanks for your kind comments on 'cycle of the scarecrow' Starfish - really pleased you like it and keep sticking at the form - it took me a lot of goes to get everything to fit right - but once it does - the feeling is amazing when you think 'ah - NOW it works' :-)
Fri 13th Sep 2013 16:04
Hello Starfish - thanks for the comment on "The Absolute Need".... Really made me laugh out loud. Glad you liked it. Please say more in your biography.
Mon 9th Sep 2013 17:04
thanks for commenting on 'stroke' starfish - unfortunately a true story which was difficult to get down in words without sounding overly sentimental - hopefully I got the tone about right :-)
Sun 1st Sep 2013 18:34
THanks for the kind comment on my Seamus poem.
Fri 30th Aug 2013 17:48
Glad you enjoyed "Then As Lives Longest Learns Most". I'm rather flattered that you think my stuff is worth reading. Most of the time I don't think it was worth writing.
The most honest line in it is, "My motives were not allus honest". I never went on any marches and certainly never enjoyed any success with women, two character traits I retain to this day!

Thanks Starfish! (Lavender man)
Fri 23rd Aug 2013 20:42
