Jumping Flea Beetles

So much for a lie-in. I`m wide awake at 6.40am, unable to return to my slumbers for fear of the multitudes of little menaces that might, during the night, have taken advantage of my absence to get stuck in. I can see them now, tucking into their third or fourth breakfast of the most tastyContinue reading “Jumping Flea Beetles”

In for a treat – another evening of raucous laughter, courtesy of Suffolk Punch Comedy Club. PJ, our Manager and Emcee, is, on this occasion, presenting his wares at the internationally-renowned venue Needham Market’s FC.

Silly Style – Christmas with Kate & Stacey

Stacey Solomon in green. Princess Kate in red. Put the two looks together and what does one get?   Not that I’ve got anything at all against the Christmas tree look! It’s true that I’m not so keen on the long skirt and sleeves and the great big neck-tie, or the alternative all-boobs-on-display open top; apartContinue reading “Silly Style – Christmas with Kate & Stacey”

Silly Comedy -Rentacrowd

Review of: Suffolk Punch Comedy Club Gig –  The Brewery Tap, Sudbury, Nov 2019 Never has our emcee, PJ, stooped so low. Colin, our first comedian for tonight’s gig, has it on good authority, that  PJ’s been in touch with ‘Rentacrowd’. Sadly, the coach is stuck in one of Sudbury’s infamous traffic jams – inContinue reading “Silly Comedy -Rentacrowd”

Silly Writing Tips – How to enjoy editing ..

  Feeling glum. Editing is really not fun. Enjoyed the writing part but, on getting to the end, realised I had to go back to the beginning and start all over again, skimming, scanning and slicing. My so-called whole book is marred by the workings of my gubbins, i.e. the muddle that is the wayContinue reading “Silly Writing Tips – How to enjoy editing ..”

Silly Book – Fairy Tales for Millennials

‘Fairy Tales for Millennials’, by Bruno Vincent. A highly-entertaining read bringing the traditional up to date with the 21st century.

Silly Poem – Divvy Dong

A response to Boris’ fine use of alliteration in his ‘dribble, drift, delay and dither’ drivel of a ‘Get Brexit Done!’ campaign.   Boris, dithering, dipped and dripped. “Well, I’ll be danged, if I didn’t deliver!” he drivelled, demented, dribbling, and delayed.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, 24th November 2019 Image by kie-ker fromContinue reading “Silly Poem – Divvy Dong”

Silly Poem – Rumblings

The rumbling gets to me in the way a not great thing grates upon a person. All of the rumbles and snorts and puffs intrude upon my sense of who I am and interfere with that which might be the continuation of myself, if it were allowed to continue, undisturbed by the inconvenience of theContinue reading “Silly Poem – Rumblings”

Savvy Comedy – Jobseekers

In for another fun evening at The Tap? Personally, I didn’t take much persuading. Just the thought of a pint (or two) of the old mango cider got me here by teleportation – the comedians on offer being a mere bonus! Bit of a BOGOFF offer; buy two pints and get a comedian thrown inContinue reading “Savvy Comedy – Jobseekers”

Savvy Book – Melmoth

Sarah Perry’s  ‘Melmoth’.
