Thirty years of the Premier League and officially the worst season for the red half of Manchester. It made me wonder about a comparison of the first PL league team that won the inaugural season and the bunch of misfits we have now.

So here I am just back from the hospital, sitting here trying to get comfortable with a back sore with needle jabs. It is probably the fifth procedure I have had on my back in say 7 years with varying success but no permanency. Back pain seems to be an ever present corollary to my […]

If I had a dog it would have to be a Melon Collie, especially at this time of year heading to another ticking over of the clock. Time to review my standing in the writing world as my attack on Twitter – whilst providing humour to little clusters of people with my rapier wit – […]
First there was ‘favorgate’ and today we had ‘humorgate’ or it may be better termed ‘humorlessgate’ as once again American spelling is the talk of the Wordle World. There are a lot of tweets imploring Wordle not to use US spelling because there are lots of people outside the States playing too. I have a […]

No, I don’t mean the school exam. It was a question on Twitter yesterday. What is the film you have watched 7+ times? Now that is a hard question because there is always going to be more than one. Where does one begin on such a quest? The DVD collection must be the starting place […]
I needed to do a quick post to check if my link with Facebook is now working but I didn’t have a Scooby Doo what to write about. So how about Scooby Doo? A long time ago in a galaxy far far away … Scooby Doo opened a chest and unleashed thirteen ghosts into the […]

Farley was dead! No doubt about it. As dead as a doornail from Covid A. Ten years ago this very night, thought Diamond Geezer Goodge, Christmas Eve 2020. Nothing to get maudlin about though, DG, said to himself. Instead he looked at his screen to add up the number of Pay Day Loans that had […]
Whisper it from the rooftops – the Library is open! I wanted people to be able read what all my books were about, what people have said about them and be able to click to them easily – all in one place, so I have now created The Library. This is a page from the […]
My quest to become a writer has been going on for years but not enough people have read my books so far and this is the reason for this website.
Now, this is my first effort in the area of children’s writing and I didn’t know if they would be any good, so I asked a couple of primary school teachers to read them.
