Well, I had a relapse and started smoking so have set my quit date for Tuesday which is when I shall be spending about ten hours in planes and trains so I won't have time to think about it too much. I've put a link to "Quitnet" on the right in the sidebar. The last time I tried this site I lasted 3 years without a demon smoke. So if anyone out there wants to join the virtual me in quitting smoking I will be glad to hear from you.
See you when I get back in a couple of weeks. Here's a link to guitarist Niño Josele.

Rain, rain, rain, rain.
It is still raining which makes a nice change from the howling winds.
I have actually organised the trip to the Lake District and because of the incredibly silly timetables flying in and out of Manchester I will not fly there but land in Liverpool and return via Luton. So from Liverpool airport I'll have to catch a bus and three trains. Every time I land in Britain there are no trains and I land up in a bus going via Bolton. I don't even know where that is.
I may be visiting Richard Bell, illustrator and author (if the trains exist) http://www.wildyorkshire.co.uk/naturediary/index.html. I thought I had better take a gift so bought an intriguing bottle of ink in the local Chinese shop. When I got home I discovered it is ink for stamp pads. Oops.

It bucketed down with rain all night and I'm trying to book a flight to England which is a mammoth exercise in lateral thinking. It is more complicated to get the the Lake District than Brazil.
Well, I got through the pretend guitar exam on Thursday but it was nerve racking. My teacher says he always feels sick before a recital. Why? Are people that perform in public scared the audience is going to attack them? Is it a fear of making a fool of oneself? In a funny way the pretend exam upped my ability to relax a notch...at least at home, anyway...ha, ha.
The above is done in "Artrage", a really good value piece of software. I could get quite addicted to it.
