Update

Post by grendel on Thu Jul 12, 2012 8:54 pm

Been a little quiet lately, thought I'd give you the news. Not signed a new contract at work, 18 months enough so coming home next month. Not got a computer anymore, the laptop I was using came with the job and has been returned, so now reduced to surfing on my mobile, on the plus side got a months paid leave before my current contract ends. Also last box of flint I ordered was mistakenly sent to the UK not here, so nothing to knap, but will have box waiting for me when I arrive in the UK. Oh the irony of having a box of English flint sent from the US at great expense to the UK.

I will also have the fun of going through customs here and in the UK with all the knapped stuff I've done over the year. Pretty sure I'll get stopped at the airport for smuggling artifacts out and have try to explain I made them myself. Then when I arrive at the
UK, why I'm bringing a small armoury into the country.

Finally this week my blog got mentioned in the New York Times (http://tv.nytimes.com/2012/05/26/arts/television/mermaids-the-body-found-on-animal-planet.html, 7th paragraph, Aquatic Ape Theory link) so seeya. cheers

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out

About 16 months now and will be returning home to Saaf London just in time to complain about the Olympics.
