that we have a socialist government. (Michael Howard just said “good evening” and has started telling of one of his constituents who waited 83 weeks to see a consultant. Michael Howard. Surely you remember? arg!?)

I’m still working on the next release of this blogging system (no time for personal web projects - work plus decorating leaves no leisure time) but even in its crude state, a couple of friends have decided to set one up (they still haven’t edited their templates much, so they look a bit like this site) so I thought I’d post their urls.

we have a new reader - hello JASR (José-Antonio Sobrino-Reineke). Jasr is a good friend of mine from New York who lives in Germany and is about to get married :-) I/05/have mentionned beforehand that I am going to miss his wedding because of our baby’s due date. So it’s a good thing he is still talking to me.

Will this one not die? Once upon a time a man called Chris Raettig was slogging it out at a small consultancy called pumpernickle when he came across the first corp anthem (kpmg I think it was) - anyway, you all know the story by heart but James just sent me an email with this link: http://www.zdnet.co.uk/specials/2002/it-anthems/ will they not let it lie? Ok, so now it’s called “it anthems” (no, not TPT, IBM) instead of corporate… I jussdunno ;-)

Falby

  • ~1 min read

As part of the child naming process, I’m trying to find the first name of the falby that came over from denmark in 890AD (I imagine). I realise this is entirely impossible, but I can dream can’t I? My branch of the Falbys continues with the shores of the north sea as my mother is from a Norwegian family. In the process of hunting this ‘alpha Falby’ I hope to stumble on a bunch of other Falbys… If you can fill in any of the blanks in the family tree (including confirming dates) please send me an email dug@pumpernickle.net

ok, I cried

It’s the pipes - does it every time, there’s just something about the sound of a piped lament… I’m glad the Queen mum’s funeral service was well attended. Intellectually, I think the monarchy doesn’t have a leg to stand on, but emotionally, I can’t help appreciating the role they play in bringing us together as a nation. I wish we could find a better thing to define us, perhaps by our values? But until we are able to unite under some superior secular (Roddenberrian?) system, Brenda and her brood will do nicely :-)
