Unusually Cold

It has turned out unusually cold here at the top of Brewers Hill.

However, some regions across the United Kingdom reached -17 over the weekend.

Here's hoping that wherever you are, things are not too bad.

A cool clock

It and the track are cool

Hi everybody- I'm back again

Hello one and all,
I must start with an apology, I have been away cruising the ports around the world, with a lovely long stay in Monaco, and I have returned to enjoy our fantastic U.K. winter weather.

Whilst I was away I took the opportunity to practice my photography and I have taken my appreciation of art to a higher level.

That's right, you guessed it, I have been taking lessons in how to produce and sell my own works of art.
Only small personalised items mind you but it's a start and I intend to eventually start selling my work on ebay.

I have also been taking lessons on how to sell other items on the internet with my own Upton Spoon, online shop which I'm going to call, well I don't know yet maybe I will call it "Upton Spoons" :)

Keep popping back to read how things get on.

Upton Spoon.

So one day soon, you my online friend, you could bid for and purchase one of my fine works of art

I forgot to say

Hi again my good friends, How are you on this the first day of May?
A pinch and a punch,
the first of the month,
I'm rather thirsty
so I'm in the pub for me lunch.

After a sport of rain the sun has shone at last on those of us that are as we speak, in the Pub enjoying a nice pint of good Ale. Come on up, imbibe and enjoy yourself.

For some real "news" read on:

I have had such great feedback from you the visitors to my site about my travels and my critique that I have been asked to take my blog to the next level and host my own site and sell special Upton Spoon Item's, Maybe my own line of beer or tableware or a line of my own rather special natty attire.
what do you think?

Let me know in the usual way good readers.

I had to share this joke with you.

I've been sailing.

Hi there friends,
I apologise for the lack of posts on my blog, I have been away sailing on a friends sailing yacht in the Med.
We had an absolute ball of a time as you can probably well imagine.
Should anyone get the chance of a sailing trip of any chance abroad in the sun then my advice would be to jump at it.
It is hard work, of course, but what a way to get a deep suntan whilst getting fit and visiting far away places via a different route. None of that waiting around in airports you know, just sail into the local peurto, sign the harbourmaster's papers, pay the feee and get to the taverna.
What a lifestyle.

Well what's been happening whilst I have been away?

I see that young pike has copied me something dreadfully and started a Facebook page.

The new season Badgers is on sale and there's something wrong in the kitchen.
I came down last night for my evening meal and I can tell you, I was less than impressed.

I will have to investigate further, probably with more meals and copious amounts of ale, but the standard of the meal and the service has slackened off.

Maybe it's the credit crunch, maybe Charlie needs a holiday, maybe it's time for a change of tableware... I can't tell at the moment.

What I need really is assistance, Perhaps you should all get down to the Upton and order an evening meal and post me your opinions. I promise to post your comments here.
Anyway, that's enough for me
