Celebrities and alienated readership

I passed Moore 2 Life, fellow bloggers, on Thursday afternoon just south of Sutton Stop as I was on the way back from watering up, turning around and emptying the unmentionables. I didn't stop as I was on a mission to meet Lisa several miles further on and it's more than my life's worth to miss an RV with Lisa. Granny Buttons also passed the other day, he stopped and we had a chat. Andrew is the nearest thing we have to a celebrity around these parts, apart from Timothy West, Prunella Scales and David Suchet.

I seem to have alienated most of my readership with just one post. Was it my use of one particular word? The Audience Numbers went down from 52 to 22 overnight. Well lets get rid of the rest. Bloody, bloody, bloody. There you go. On the other hand, maybe I should just post more pictures to make it more interesting.

Lisa and I went to a restaurant the other night. This is an unusual event as we much prefer pubs to dine in as restaurants tend to lack atmosphere, are over expensive and in many cases, their food is no better that pubs. But we braved the downside and ate at a local restaurant and it was, as we always assumed, absolutely appalling. Pubs for us in the future then. It was so quiet we felt that we could not talk and were like a little old couple who had been married for years and not communicating (verbally at least). As soon as we walked outside we were talking again, arguing, debating and disagreeing (or more unusually, agreeing). It must have something to do with restaurants.

Pete, perhaps lack of numbers is something to do with the two week holiday fron posting you took from 18th March! Good to see you're up-and-running again. Oh, and pictures definitely help - I'm struggling with an unfamiliar laptop (PC) and an incredibly complicated (compared with the Mac) means of getting photos onto my blog.

Oh you Mac users are so pampered. Everything is just so easy. Glad to see that you're suffering like the rest of us now.

A lack of consistency in posting, perhaps? The sheer lack of promised photographs?

Maybe this whole celebrity thing has rubbed off on you and you think that the fans aren't important any more...

Oh, I've got to go, my Mac has just crashed!

April Fool..

You Mac users are so sanctimonious. As a linux user, I'm only too pleased that those commenting here are not normally MS users. I obviously attract a more intelligent clientèle.

Hey Pete, well you swear away, I will still keep reading hahaha. Sometimes it is nice to have a good old rant. I always feel you cannot please all of the people all of the time. Jo
