I have been toying with the idea of hosting my blog on my web space for some time. I have finally taken the plunge. Hopefully it will be easy for everyone to use and I hope you like the new design it is called Amazing Grace. I am still playing around with one or two features, so you may see a few subtle differences over time.
My New home can be found here, I hope you will visit. A welcome message and a new blog post can be found there.
PS: Let me know if you experience any problems with the site.

I read the book when it first came out in paperback. I really enjoyed it and loved the premise, which certainly did come across in the film. The ending though is quite different from the book, which incidentally was originally called Q&A and written by Vikas Swarup. I might do a review of the book for you when I can find my copy…
I came back to some good news in my mail box – the MoD pay ballot results. PCS members have voted against accepting the divisive pay offer. The offer means that some of the lowest paid members would receive a cut in their earning potential whilst other members would receive as much as a 17% pay rise.

One of my tasks whilst at the conferences is to report on the key motions and debates, sharing information with PCS members who were unable to attend.
I am toying with the idea of doing ‘Conference Live Tweeting’ – live updates via twitter which will automatically update on my blog and also the local PCS site…

I was beginning to think that yet another PSU had blown up. On the off chance I changed the power cable over and it started working again… I think it was having little joke at my expense.
But anyway onto the PhotoHunt pictures. I spotted this lovely scene on my recent trip to Little Moreton Hall.

…Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife
Firmin is a gallant soul who is gifted and wise. He is shunned by his fellow rats and makes plans to befriend the bookseller. In addition to reading books Firmin has a fondness of the local picture house where he views what he calls his lovelies on the big screen.
The book is very philosophical and has well drawn characters, and Fermin is quite charming. The book is interspersed with pictures of characters and events that Fermin encounters along the way, I found these quite charming. Before each chapter there were also pictures of book covers these didn’t really add a lot for me.
I really enjoyed the book and found it quite a page turner.
