No Ant-i Climax

As many of you know we take a family trip every year to the Silverstone Classic motor racing event.  Due to a mix-up on the holiday front we were only able to go for the Saturday rather than camping for the whole 3 days of the event.  Every year on the Saturday evening they put on a music event and we’ve seen Blue, The Pussy Cat Dolls and plenty of tribute acts but the best we have seen so far was the last act of the night this year – Adam Ant!

Our kids have been brought up listening to his music (well sort of!) and even they loved it although it was at the end of a very tiring day.  By the time we got “home” (back to the outlaws that is) is had been over a 20 hour day for Sal & I but I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.  It seems that “Old Ants” never die – and I mean me not Adam.  Viva la Rock!!

Memories of Mac Mac

Today is a really hard day as our we lost our our dearest friend and loving dog Macintosh.  At 14 years of age he had a long and comfortable life and will be missed by friends and family alike.  From the first day when we got him and he "got me drunk" at our local (only to be found asleep with his owner on the sofa by a not too pleased wife) to the many, many happy days that we, as a family, enjoyed with him.  Of late he has not been his usual self but he was still "our Mac, Mac".

Good night buddy we miss you so much.
