What Have They Done to Our Cafe??

What Have They Done to Our Cafe??

Those of you who follow our story would know that we have an historical fondness (after the Kingdom of Kent) to the City of Le Mans in France. Strange really – we never planned on going there – but on Day 1 (or night 1 more accurately) of our first trip to the North African […]

Kent Aristocracy, in Berkshire…

David writes…  “Ascot on Wednesday last! Bet you didn’t know I could look so elegant!” True – I didn’t – and he does – but it begs the question – How good would he look without Patricia on his arm? Royal Ascot website is HERE.

Yeokham, established 781…

Just in from David… That’s the original spelling, and the date we trace Ickham back to. Knowing your interest in all things Ickham, today we unveiled our new village sign… A chap in the village designed it. I suggested, as we were the Treasury of Canterbury Cathedral, the most important Anglican/Protestant Cathedral in the World, that […]

Home from Home in Hong Kong…

I don’t remember shooting this picture but I found it in one of last year’s archives. The FCC is not a place that one carries a camera so I’m glad that someone sent it to me – great memories!

Wanker in the Water… Stops Boat Race

Can’t get Live Video – or even BBC Radio, but managed to get this! Police boats have arrested him. Race will be restarted from Hammersmith Bridge. Jeeeez what a twat! Clever Tweet… “Think they should cut off his rollocks.” There always was a lot of shit floating in the Thames. And this time – a […]

Ouch!

10 july 2011 – 9th stage of the 2011 Tour de France. Leaders of the stage are way ahead of the peloton, when a French TV car crashes into Juan Antonio Flecha who then hits Johnny Hoogerland who crashes into a fence with a huge leap through the air.

Old Farts bar two…?

Yeah? Which two? Normally the church yard in Ickham is a quiet and dignified place but, a couple of days ago, the early morning solemnity was shattered by 14 local lads as they gathered prior to their departure on a day trip to Gerberoy.  This beautiful 10th century medieval village, near Beauvais in Picardie, survived […]
