Reading this Blog, one might draw the conclusions that
1.) I'm a computer whiz for building extra pages into it, setting the background, arranging the layout etc. etc, and
2.) I have a lot of time on my hands to experiment and do this.
Both suppositions would be hopelessly wrong.
I mean so wrong that they make Neville Chamberlain’s, “Peace in our time” speech look like an inside trader’s tip.
No, I have a friend who did this for me.
Well you shouldn’t be; the fact is that though you don’t have to be a brain surgeon to actually design your Blog, you do have to have a lot of time to work out how to do it.
Richard Grayling from Struggling Authors works in IT and he knows the ropes, I mean he REALLY knows the ropes.
What would have taken me the best part of a month to work out took the Bill Gates of the would-be writer world approx three hours, and the results speak for themselves.
So, imagine the scene. You have a notion that you would like to try your hand at Blogging but the technical how’s and do’s are a tad over your head, what do you do?
For a paltry 20 of your English Pounds Richard can whip you up a Blog you could take home to mother for tea and crumpets, AND GET AN INVITE TO COME AGAIN!!

And remember, you heard it here first… I always wanted to say that.
The second part of the title refers to my little sortie over the next couple of days. I'm off to Blighty for the CAMRA Real Ale festival at Earl's Court. Wish me luck, this could get nasty...
I'm locking up all roads to my neck of the woods then. LOL
Ha ha I had good back up babe !!
Good luck Reg!
If it's real beer your talking about you can't do worse than sample Theakston's Bitter or better still Old Peculier. All these German beers are acidy(Lager) types. The only true and wonderful tasting beers come from Yorkshire where the hops are the sweetest in the world.
Thought I'd just pop in and put you right.
A Time for Living
Thanks V, I needed it, lol.
Colt, w went to Earl's Court and it was fantastic. Brewers from every part of our Golden Isle presented their wares for the beer quaffing public.
I'm not really a fan of Old Peculiar but I do like Theakston's Best.
Top tipples of the day?
Merlyn from Llandudno, Red McGregor from the Orkney's and the indomitable Brain's SA from Cardiff.
A very nice pint.
I also like Hobgoblin from Wychwood breweries but the stand was closed when we arrived.
Can't beat a bit of SA - I always SAy
I love Theakston and Old Perculiar. We used to sell a lot in the bar at the Police Station which is sadly now closed. Nothing like a nice cold lager though on a hot day.
Wonder what SA tastes like and who bottles it?
Off to do another blog... sooo behind.
