Anybody who has listened to my radio/tv broadcasts or read some of my previous blogs will know that I am a great fan of what I call the "small bloggers", that is small is followers not in stature or content.

During the week I have been blogging about St George's day (April 23rd) back home across the pond. But who was St George?
The image of Saint George, renowned for his defense of all in need, is among the most well-recognized of Christian martyrdom figures. Primarily famous for being the Patron Saint of England (replacing the former patron, Edward the Confessor), George is also known as "Victory Bringer" and "The Quick to Hear." Of the man himself, very little can be… Continue

Today while checking out I contest came across the ruling definition of what was classed as a published author.

On the BBC web site front page news quite often under a sub heading like “Also In The News” (normally on the right hand side of the page) are the sort of stories that would not normally make headlines and quite often bring a chuckle or two to myself and once shared, with my work mates as well.
Today for instance about some baby snakes that had escaped on a Quantas… Continue

Perhaps the most famous Anthony and Cleopatra were Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in the 1963 film “Cleopatra”.
Now there is a chance that Archaeologists might be on the brink of finding the tomb of doomed lovers.
Work is about to start excavating three sites near a temple in west Alexandria. A series of deep shafts were discovered in which it is thought that Anthony and Cleopatra might be buried.
This is an area where recently, tombs containing ten… Continue

"You can't tell a book by it's cover." Something that has been said many times before except perhaps by authors. This last weekend Simon Cowell along with many other learned this lesson.
Many people in the US watch American Idol, which by the way like many other US TV programs started of in England. From Archie Bunker came from tell Death Us do Part, to the US watered down version of "the Office". A British for of "Idol" has been running under various names in England for decades, in… Continue

Few Americans have any idea that there is even such a thing as Boxing Day, let alone why the holiday, which celebrated in places such as Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, is a statutory holiday.
Despite its name, Boxing Day, has nothing to do with pugilistic competition. Nor is it a day for people to return unwanted Christmas presents or clear the house of empty boxes.
It is normally held on December 26th, or the… Continue

This evening (Thursday) I went along to a studio about forty miles away and was a guest for an hour long interview on the local TV station.
I had met the lady who interviewed I had met three or four years ago and knew we would have fun. We chatted for the full hour, live with no retakes and just a three minute gap for adverts. It was so much fun.
We covered the book, the story, writing, publishing, the UK flag, even some… Continue
