The Triple Crown , The French And Melweg

So - "where has he been ?" you ask. The answer is all over Western Europe but frequently in London and Amsterdam.

First up however, today Wales won the Triple Crown. This will mean nothing to those of you who live outside the UK (unless you live in France or Italy) but tonight has been party night in Cardiff and "National Pride" has finally been restored.

Next Saturday we play France in Cardiff for the Championship and the Grand Slam.

Win and Cardiff won't sleep for a week.

Then there was Melweg in Amsterdam and The Gutter Twins (Mark Lanegan and Greg Dulli ; both American citizens but you've never heard of them I guess).

To say this was a mind blowing experience would be an understatement. 6 hours sleep in 3 days and the "horror drive" of all time back from Bristol Airport.

And London - God I hate the place now. Meetings about PSBA (Public Sector Broadand Aggregation). Yes people ; he really does work for a living and this project might just kill me or my collegue Ben who's been made to suffer also.

"Dead Blog" Ferfe ? No - not yet. I want to see some sunshine and that's exactly what I'm going to do.

Next stop Barcelona.

Hugs to all.

Scotland The Brave Shot Down In Flames

Wales 30 - Scotland 15

I promise you all that this isn't going to turn into a boring rugby blog. But this is about as exciting as Welsh rugby has been for 10 years or more. The game on Saturday was simply stunning : the party - as predicted - continued well into Sunday (and it's probably still going on somewhere).

We now have a two week break before we play Italy in Cardiff. If we win that ............

( By the been way Ruby - it's unlikely that you've driven past my kitchen window but if you've been anywhere like Chapter in Cardiff you've been 5 minutes away).

The Power And The Glory


I'm sure that to many people who view this blog from time to time this means very little.

If you live in Wales, however, it marks the end of 20 years of pain and humiliation as the Welsh rugby team finally pounded the English into the mud at Twickenham.

Great, great joy : so much so that some us might need trauma counselling.

Next Saturday we play Scotland in Cardiff about a mile away from my house.

I might become unbearable if we win.

For The Rose (The End Of The Affair)

Time, all the long red lines, that take
Control, of all the smoke-like streams that flow into your
Dreams, that big blue open sea, that can't be
Crossed, that can't be climbed, just born
Between, oh the two white lines, distant gods and faded
Signs, of all those blinking lights, you had to pick the one tonight...

Holes, dug by little moles, angry jealous
Spies, got telephones for eyes, come to you as
Friends, all those endless ends, that can't be
Tied, oh they make me laugh, and always make me
Cry, until they drop like flies, and sink like polished
Stones, of all the stones I throw,
How does that old song go?
How does that old song go?...

Roman Candles

How many special people change
How many lives are living strange
Where were you when we were getting high?
Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannon ball
Where were you while we were getting high?

Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky
Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova
A champagne supernova in the sky

London Haymarket - 2007 Finally Ends

I know I dreamed you, a sin and a lie,

I have my freedom but I don't have much time

Faith has been broken tears must be cried,

Let's do some living after we die

Wild Horses, couldn't drag me away,

Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them someday

Merlin - London. December 29, 2007

Here are we one magical moment
Such is the stuff from
which dreams are woven.

Bending sound
Dredging the ocean lost in my circle.

Here am I
Flashing no colour tall in this room
overlooking the ocean.
