The Roaches May Have No King But They Are Intelligent And Funny



"The Roaches Have No King" by Daniel Evans Weiss and I will tell you more when I know what's going on. This is a darkly amusing tale of New York Apartment life from the view of cockroaches and possibly other bugs that infest the apartment.

I am also reading "Carol" by Patricia Highsmith, a recommendation from my work LGBT+ book club, so I will have two on the go, and that is not a bad thing.

I recently discovered that my American Amazon Author page has a feed from this blog which you can see here. It only shows on the .com site but not on others. C'est La Vie.

The music is "The Bug" by Dire Straits

Crown Green Bowling And Pies




The Stuart Maconie book "The Pie At Night" is coming along very well covering various sports in the North of England including Speedway which, along with the TT is the only going round a track sport I can watch. Also, Speedway bikes are the only ones I can ride coz they only have an accelerator, no clutch or brakes therefore I can concentrate on keeping reasonably upright.

I also found out that Crown Green Bowling is so-called because the green is raised in the middle where the target ball is placed,

I am also reading "Carol" by Patricia Highsmith, a recommendation from my work LGBT+ book club, so I will have two on the go, and that is not a bad thing.

He is also an excellent writer and DJ and worth checking out in print or on the BBC.

Pies

 



This is only the third post of 2024. Just back from holiday in Alnwick, my weight has gone up by 0.7Kg which is not too bad after a holiday.

This morning I nicked myself shaving and have gone through three plasters, there was a lot of llood.

I have finished "Pies and Prejudice" by Stuart Maconie and am now picking up "The Pie At Night" which covers a similar area slightly differently. I suppose the title caught my attention because of finally finishing "Supernatural".

I have also started "Carol" by Patricia Highsmith, a recommendation from my work LGBT+ bookclub, so I will have two on the go, and that is not a bad thing.
