Refresh the soul – Or a day out scootering!

Afternoon readers. My last post raised the act of soul refreshment! No this is not some Lord Bragg sponsored drink, but the simple act of travel and shopping, of course! This is the story of one man’s weekend to do just that! Along with his beautiful, and yet somewhat mysterious wife, he takes on an…

Rules are made to be broken?

Hi, readers! Another few weeks in onein400 land have passed. I apologise for the recent ‘radio silence’. The good weather and organised chaos have kept me from quill and ink! But now I am back! Settle down with your last remaining Easter eggs (some half price ones are still available in the stores!), enjoy another…

Times they are a changin….

Or are they? This week’s theme, to weave into my everyday life, is one of those loose phrases that is often both true and false. Of course, it’s also a classic Bob Dylan song. More from the legendary Bob later but, in the meantime, on with my epistle produced during the recent UK snow! I…

13 days Later…

Welcome to 2019 readers! My post is a little bit late. Thirteen days late to be precise.

That was the summer that was – Part 1

Wow, what a summer! Perfect weather, and time spent with great friends. Best weather since 1976, which I actually remember quite well. So what’s been happening? During my self-imposed exile from the blog over summer, the world has provided plenty of inspiration, through daily events, crazy stories, but above all from the stupidity of the…

Land of the Survivors

Readers, I write this post during a brief pause in our heatwave here in the UK. It’s coming back, don’t worry. Does this beautiful weather conceal a secret? Are we doomed? Way back in 1954, the celebrated science fiction writer, and door to door salesman, HG Bragg in his novel The Land of the Survivors painted…

Calling Dr Bragg, Come in Dr Bragg…

Dr Bragg!! Who is he? A new type of Doctor; a doctor of all, a doctor of medicine, feelings, music, life and all things important. This week, into his world we tumble and venture. Shall we jump?…..yes let’s jump NOW!! But first, take a good mouthful of Bragg’s Potion 26………….
