A sad day for Weston

A sad day indeed for us who have many memories at Weston 'Grand Pier'.

I have spent much of my childhood in Weston, and many hours nagging my poor parents to give me money so I could go on the helter skelter, or penny slides. A couple of summers ago I revisited the same amusements and felt like I was '5' again. We still go to Weston regularly, as the pooches love to run the length of the beach (the banner photo was taken there).

If you have ever visited Brighton and seen the demise of one of their beloved piers, you just hope that this will never happen to Weston.

Mighty Boosh Festival

A wonderfully insane weekend. Dolly Parton on Friday night (who was fantastic - well she would be). And on Saturday screaming down to Kent at 85 mph to catch Peaches, Gary Numan, Har Mar Superstar, Jarvis and Robots in Disguise booshing it up at the Hop Farm with the Boosh boys at the end of the night. Fantastic!

Vince Noir and Howard Moon

(BTW, Mini-Howard is not my son who I have hidden away from you for the past 6 years!, he was with his father who was dressed as Bolo the Gorilla)
