A busy two weeks

Now, where was I?

Losing track of time methinks.

I have been so busy lately. Not in the productive sense of the word busy, rather more in the lollingaroundinthepubandsoacializing sort of way. Don't get me wrong, I have been a wee bit productive, but basing this output on Pareto's rule, this could only equate to about 20% of all energy expended.

Not in any particular order, I have been a guest on a Business Radio Show in Seattle bullshitting  talking my way through a whole hour of questions about Apple's business practices and their labor compliance failures...... followed by a further hour at the pub.

The Pitman Painters play by Lee Hall, is now showing in Seattle. I wrote to the Theatre to tell them my dad was one of the Ashington Art Group and I have some of his paintings. "Would they like to see them?" I asked. I was invited to a nice lunch with the cast of the show and we talked for about another hour with a reporter from the Seattle Times  ..........before stopping off at the pub.

This celebrity status is thirsty work.

This last 10 days has been a whirlwind of activity. My friend Terry Docherty came over with his partner Annie. Terry makes all of my instruments, and has made a few for other artists on the Island, including Kat Eggleston and Steve Amsden (of old farts fame).

Well, we had to go out and play and drink. It would have been churlish not to. We closed down two venues, before heading back home to resume until the wee hours of the morning.

I have one more night to go at a lovely cafe/bar on the island called the Snapdragon, before I curl up in a dark hole somewhere and get some SLEEP.

  3. My partner works part time for APPLE and she is in love with that part of her life, says that if she could get a full time job there, she would quit teaching you...
