    My Favourite Band and Why

    Is Genesis. But yesterday for first time ever I listened to Led Zeppelin IV - and it’s great. So why Genesis and not Zeppelin. From the day I first listened to Selling England by the Pound. Age 14 it was my first ‘rock’ album - bought on the back of loving the single I Know what I like… all I...

    Undercoat

    Quickie for the decorators on here. My Mrs has changed her mind about my painting the timber skirting, was gloss - now probably a silk finish emulsion. But I have already done an undercoat using Dulux Professional Undercoat. On the tin it says that this undercoat is perfect for gloss, it...

    Floor Strippimg

    Just finished stripping varnish off a wooden floor using drum and edge sanders. Looks great except I can’t get into the corners of the room. Any thoughts on how best to clean up the corners. I could use sanding block and elbow grease, or a liquid paint/varnish stripper. Feeling like latter...

    Relief from Internal Hedge

    A new hedge has been planted down part of the right hand side of one of our holes. There is maybe 5yds of light rough between the fairway and the hedge and so I don’t have to be far offline to be tangling with the hedge. The hedge has many staked young hedging shrubs. If my ball ends up in or...

    Zoned and Drawn Tee Times

    Just entered a club comp for which, for the first time I am aware of, tee times have been split into four zones, three of two hours and the last of one hour. The number of slots still available in each zone was shown and I chose which zone I wanted a tee time in. I could not choose a specific...

    Marking Ball Position on Green

    In marking his ball on the green to lift it my buddy did something I can’t recall ever seeing anyone do before. He marked the ball position with a tee - pressing it into the turf. He then placed his putter clubhead against the tee and placed a ball marker at the heel of the putter. Is this OK...

    Shirley Williams RIP

    Without making any comment whatsoever on her politics...but simply on a human level I am sad to hear this morning of the passing from us of Shirley Williams. She always seemed to me to be a decent and principled person - and when she spoke on any matter I listened.

    Nine Holes in Sheffield or Chesterfield Area

    Any suggestions. Thinking I’ll take my lad for a knock but as he hasn’t played for a good few years he’s not sure if he’ll be able to hit it. He had lessons about 15yrs ago so grip, stance and basics are there - and he has a natural swing And if he returned to the game he could be good. Last...

    Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

    So sad to hear of his passing from cancer at 72. Over many years I found his words and writings thoughtful and wise, and we need thoughtful, wise leaders at the moment more than ever. These leaders are there - we just have to listen, know their words, and act accordingly.

    Something for things not realised - and how you came to find out? Pink Floyd‘s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn Now that’s an interesting album title. Where they come up with that then? I had started listening on BBC Sounds to The Wind in the Willows and thought that instead I’d buy the book...
