Christmas is coming!

It's true folks Christmas is coming! I know because last night I joined a local band called 'Wot's next' at their rehearsal to practice some carols with them. They are preparing for a booking at a local church where they want to do a mix of Christmas Songs (Chestnuts roasting etc) and Christmas Carols but it appears their keyboard player is not happy playing the carols so they drafted me in.
I see that there are a lot more lights appearing on houses as well so that must surely be a sign.

My marking is complete and has gone off to London and I hope that in the next few days there will be 14 happy students at least - I do hope they read the comments I have made to encourage them on their journey's to becoming fully accredited.

I have just been on a tour around the blogs I read regularly and I am always quite interested by the vast range of topics that people in the blogosphere are talking about, that's when they do talk of course, and I know I might be told I am not looking at the right blogs as there are some who blog regularly. I really must sit one of these days and look at the list of blogs I read and see if there are some I could remove while at the same time adding some different ones. I think one of the reaons I haven't done this is that I think most of the people who read this blog also read all the others that I do where there may be a whole load of links to a wide variety of blogs. I have on occasion clicked on a link on other blogs to find the link takes you nowhere presumably because the person has ceased to blog or has changed to a different provider.

On a slightly different note I can report that my son has done some test recording and it looks very much as if the 'talking book' version of 'A Bang or a Whimper'could very soon become a reality. I will keep you updated dear reader.

Well a busy week ahead with Local Preachers tomorrow evening, preparation for a special celebration service I am leading on Sunday and catering for an 80th birthday party where there will be 80 guests as well as doing a full time job

Gerry, tell Bob that Methodist Preacher will send a prayer heavenwards as well. Tell Bob I also had a fall today but fortunately don't need treatment. But it is one hell of a shock.

Hi Gerry will certainly put a word in for Bob - sorry to hear this news perhaps you could keep us posted on how he is
