So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

That's a good start to the season although I doubt Reidski will agree. I really really must get that season ticket.

On a less happy note, I feel the need to remark on the passing of a fairly legendary local politician of note. Once upon a time the Labour Party used to elect politicians from within the ranks of the working class, ordinary folk who were at home with their own people. Such a character was wee Jack. Difficult at times to understand with an extremely fast tongue and broad accent, he nevertheless knew his role inside out. Self dubbed Councillor for fences, he would almost, but not quite, mock the internationalist rantings and resolutions of the young vanguard. We were looking at the bigger picture and he was representing and working on behalf of the folk who elected him to fix their fences and deal with their housing issues. And elect him they did, time and time again with an untouchable majority, he was even once elected unopposed.

Every camp our Woodies ever held locally, he would walk out to the site, early on a Sunday morning and cook breakfast for 20 - 50 people, because he enjoyed it. We did too, he made a good breakfast. Fare thee well then, Mr Magnum man.

On a much, much happier note. Congratulations Craig and Maria on the birth of Kelsey (Bet that spelling is way wrong)
