Beer with Stein and Simone. Nobody else out at all, which is unusual for a Saturday. So I’ve come home early and will now head to bed as I am exhausted.

Today I went to Bentley

Today I went to Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum to attend a food fair there (it was work, honest!). Firstly, doesn’t the combination of wildfowl and vintage cars strike you as an odd mix? And secondly, why collect fowl? I’m not sure that I see the attraction of keeping around a thousand ducks, geese and swans in captivity. Admittedly, they looked pretty contented, in large smart clean enclosures, with lots of grass and trees and shrubs, as well as access to plenty of water to bathe, paddle and swim in. But it did strike me that this was like “twitching” without the thrill of the chase (if that is what makes birdwatching such a “fun” activity).
Although I will confess that the ducklings were cute.

Horoscope for today.

The time has come to sink or swim. Drop your ballast to increase mobility. Anyone who matters is sure to be attracted by your new attitude of honesty and efficiency.

Either that, or you need to put on a mask of who you are — the most accurate likeness you can find — and show that to the rest of the world. You are a really not as vulnerable as you feel, so perhaps you can venture a little farther into the unknown than you could last time. Quite a bit has changed since then.
