Just a few short items…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s octopus is the one getting angry whilst trying on woollen sweaters in Marks and Spencer’s clothing department – apparently none of the colours suit him.

Excuses for being late. No. 383.
I’m sorry I’m late, but I found a singularity in a packet of corn flakes.

A single overheard remark:
‘It’s getting beyond a jerk now Don…’

I just heard on the news that one of my favourite blues men has just died – Otis Rush 1934-2018.
Come on, let’s have a listen to one of his songs. (Click here.)

Of course, the worst thing in art is when curators get to thinking that they should try their hand at creating rather than curating – oh, and of course when they annoyingly experiment with curating creatively…

I recently noticed in the middle of a row of shops an establishment where they provide private tuition for kids, whose parents can afford it, to help them get on at school. There’s a sign on the front that says Kip McGrath Education Centres – it incorporates an eye-catching coloured strip with all the colours of the rainbow on it. The colours, fading into each other from left to right, are: blue, red, orange, yellow, green – at first glance they look like the colours of the spectrum, perhaps to give an indication that the place is particularly good at teaching science? It’s a pity they are in the wrong order though, everyone knows, and Isaac Newton noticed some time ago, that the spectrum has red at one end and blue (violet) at the other, and that it doesn’t go from red to green… You’d think they would have spotted that when they were having their signs made… (Click here.)

An observation:
Oh look, there’s Pablo Picasso poking through the sandwiches and snacks in Tesco’s food-to-go department… Gosh, it really does look like him doesn’t it?… Will he get a bag of crisps too? Yes, yes, I knew he would! Cheese and onion flavour I reckon…

What about spam? After a lull of a couple of weeks the number of items flopping into my comments box has now increased a little. They do tend to be shortish ones though – I think I’ll glue a couple together, as I did the last time I shared this tripe with you dear reader.
How about these, from a couple of people called Kamila and Linuxi?
Once you elect to freelance, you will also be in control of
your personal schedule. As an alternative of being sure to the 9-to-five work day of most regulation offices, each your everyday schedule and your calendar as an entire can be largely as much as you. Whether or not you have to take day without work.
Arrangement caught attention because I am a Larry Bird fan anf the husband lived in french riff. The most crucial item in order to make a smoothie is a good blender.
Well, thank you Kamila and Linuxi – I will surely bear in mind what you two have said. Unfortunately I am unaware of Mr Bird, but although not a freelancer, I do like a nice riff – of course. And which crucial item blender would you recommend me to buy? Please keep these messages coming! I depend on them muchly…

Yes, I’m thinking of changing my name to Van Tidge-Point.

A single overheard remark:
‘It was the jewel on the evening bow Simon…’

    Great fun and laughs this morning, Dave. FYI, I’m in the process of moving this coming week so I won’t on the blog as much. I will have to catch up with some of your posts next weekend.
