September is here...

September is upon us then... Rain clouds and rain, the Rugby Season starting (Neath beating Pontypool in first game - Good start!), Neath Annual Travelling Fair, Kids going back to school for another year and more rain!

This last few weeks has been atrocious when it comes to rain, but that said, something really strange and yet beautiful happened the weekend. Sara and myself went for a drive through the Welsh Mountains, from Aberystwyth in the West right across to the border town of Shrewsbury in England. Now, along this long and winding road, it follows the woute of a river, vallys and the railway track. Normally, it's a beautiful site with green everywhere and animals dotted around the vast open fields. However, it was different this weekend, for there was floodwater everywhere. Fields were now giant pools of freezing cold water, which reflected the mountains around and actually was quite a beautiful sight. The dotted animals were now huddled in groups near the higher ground by the roadway, and in one particulaer patch of dry land there must have been around 2000 sheep and 500+ cows plus some Ponies and Horses and other farmyard animals all squashed into an area no bigger than perhaps 2 football fields! What a sight it was!

I got an email off Dean Torrence congratulating us on getting our website onto the new Jan & Dean Liberty Collections Liner notes. He also sent us a few photos for the website. It's always great to hear off Dean, a real rock star from when music was young.

I'm listening to the new Brian Wilson album. It's ok! Probably better than most of his solo stuff, yet he's no-where near as good as he was during the 1960's... and I don't care what anyone says!

I'll be posting soon with an update on my gaming and film watching. Talk soon friends.
