July sunset


Last night was very odd perch fishing on the canal near Gargrave. The air felt warm but there was a brisk and cool breeze right out of the East. There was a storm "threatening" but 24 hours later it's still yet to appear. I reckon we've lost around 15 minutes of light since the summer solstice but the swifts are still here; albeit it for a couple of weeks maximum

I Roy


Barrington Spence



I caught the last few seconds of I-Roy deejaying over this cut this afternoon on 6 music. Neither the deejay, nor original version were familiar (I'd never heard of Spence tbh), but both are killers! Big up Stuart Mc for playing something a bit different on the BBC

Green fingers



Stef is away and I am overseeing her garden like a baldie-headed Bruce Dern I had an untamed MANjungle before Stef moved up North, but her plants seem to be doing okay on my watch, possibly aided by the deluge earlier this week while I was in Leicester. I'm particularly pleased with the geraniums; plants I have always associated with greenhouses, not outdoor plots
