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.

Just a quick note for anyone out there who reads this tosh.

I'm chucking things up in the air for a while to see where they land, all in all, can't say I'm over enamoured with things in my life as they are at present, so I'm off for a while, hope to get back to some degree of normality sometime, so I may be back, who knows.

All in all the last 50 years have been a funny old trip, so enjoy your lives, enjoy each other, don't play mind games and just live life for all its worth....

and find someone nice to do it with, it can make all the difference...and never ever try to repair something that's well and truly broken.

Good Luck

It seems the contact form on the site has been out of action for awhile. All the enquiries I have been receiving have been blank, so apologies if I didn't reply, it's not that I'm ignorant, just simply in the dark.

Well, it's sorted now, so if you tried to get in touch and failed please try again!



Can you see what it is yet?

Taking a break.......

Date: 2007-04-15 19:46:13

Author: Pat Kent

Not that anyone may notice, but I'm having a short break from this virtual world as we move home and office. The new place we are going to has scope for a half decent studio and so, since I first owned my own house, my wish to have some decent studio space may finally materialise.

Loads to write about when I get back on line, in particular, parents who can't keep their kids under control in restauarants, rebuilding pedestals and homes and a bit about my inspirations from astronauts, artists, through models to the plain, ordinary folk who desreve a mention somewhere.

See you soon, hopefully......
