Brighton announce £2.2million trading loss. The pressure of being without a ground is really showing and surely the team can not continue in the long term with a strategy of survival-by-selling-the-family-silver (where family silver equates to the team’s best players).

Hulking Edward, not Graham
I read this headline and got entirely the wrong idea.
In case you thought I’d disappeared completely, we’ve been away in the Netherlands with no internet connection – which is a good thing, sometimes.
On our return, we appear to have been reduced to a single cat – Monty is nowhere to be seen, which is worrying. We asked a neighbour to pop round and feed them each day, which he has done superbly. Treacle is here and content, but there is no trace of Monty. He’s gone AWOL before when we’ve been away, but has usually turned up within 12 hours of our return – we’ve now been home for 14 hours and he has still to show himself. You can mark me down as “concerned”.
UPDATE: Ten hours after posting the above, Monty ambled in and demanded food with a "where the hell have you been?!" miaow. Much relief all-round, particularly as I’d already walked around Ruralville checking hedges, ditches and verges.

SpecialBike take knackered bikes and turn them into bespoke restorations with a new life. I like this idea a lot.

The search function in WordPress only returns results from posts, not pages. How lousy is that? This plug-in fixes it and offers lots of other functionality.
Happy birthday to Mrs Graybo, who is [knows better than that!] years old today. Cake has been consumed (by me, at least).
Tom was most excited by the presence of paper, cards and gifts this morning, but less impressed that there was nothing in the way of gifts for him. It looks like he’ll be more aware of presents by the time Christmas and his birthday come around than he was for the last time.
