This won't be so much of a diary, it's more likely to be a collection of odd musings and witterings on a variety of topics and issues that might spill out ocassionally from a "grumpy old man" or just me opening up, but it's pretty much inoffensive stuff.........I hope.

The reasons as to how and why I wanted something like this built into this site is described in the first entry made a few years ago now, maybe I should have stuck to the original idea and called this Bono's Hat rather than simply, Diary...My later entries explain why it didn't change...... At times I may be a gobby bloke from Bermondsey but I certainly ain't rich enough yet to have the arse sued off of me by Messrs U2.

I had hoped that a few other friends would also contribute the odd piece along the way to liven things up, provide a laugh or just comment on those things that happen along the way to make you ask the question, why, but they now seem to have gone off and done their own blogs!

Feel free to mail me if you want to take issue on any point or simply want to join in.

Apologies and Deletions

I've decided to delete a couple of pieces of text and amend some of the diary entries put up recently. 

After re-reading them I felt that they they may have been inappropriate and could have possibly portrayed the wrong message or been misconstrued in a few quarters.

Maybe, sometimes the best of intentions can all to easily be misjudged and interpreted in the wrong way; and sometimes, we all simply make mistakes and something meant in a nice way causes upset. So, if my posts did cause any upset through my comments, drawings or diary entries, then please accept my apologies. Like most things I do in my life, they were not intended to upset or harm.
