  1. I got loadsa photo-groupies.

    But it’s getting increasingly difficult to maintain my enthusiasm on the Chariot. Only two or three regular posters, very few comments.

    Critical mass and all that. Maybe it’s time to say au revoir?

  2. The seal (if that is what it is) just to the left of the middle orca is probably thinking, “Ooooh sh……….”

    Janus, good evening.

    I admit to not posting or commenting enough myself.

    But, look at the ‘hits’. and the rate thereof. There are clearly people out there who are checking into the Chariot to see what’s going on in substantial and sustainable numbers,even if they feel unimpelled ( or disimpelled?) to post or comment,

    They know who they are and I hope that they will find the time to comment or post so that, if nothing else, I get the chance to wish them a Good New Year before it’s too late (31st December 2013).

  4. Critics have acclaimed the Orca Theatre open air production of ‘MacBeth’,particularly its spectacular opening scene.

    ‘When shall we three meet again?’

    I have a policy of not commenting on caption comments.

  6. Janus, you put your caption competitions up early in the morning and my brain is not in gear until about midday and then it’s working out lunch and dinner menus.

    I was glad to learn that the ice finally moved away, leaving the orcas room to breathe. But having just watched a BBC documentary on polar bears and how the melting sea ice is endangering them, I wondered how these orcas had managed to find a different, non-melting sea ice.

  7. JW and Sheona. (to the latter of whom a Good New Year since I haven’t done you yet).

    Well met by moonlight, to paraphrase ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’.

    It must be Jocktime!

  8. Hello JM,

    It was perishing at the fives tonight though I still managed to score a few goals.(and missed a few sitters though this was probably because of the proposed 12-12-18 league reconstruction preying on my mind). Didn’t see the cricket today but delighted with the result.

    MacBeth! A Midsummer’s Night Dream! I didn’t realise you were so fond of Marlowe’s work.

  9. And a Happy New Year to you JM and JW (whom I usually address as TR). May Alex Salmond trip over his ego and retire from politics.

    I have just collected from the local library a book written about Aberdeen by a wee lassie born there. The title is “Tony Hogan Bought me an Ice Cream Float before he Stole my Ma” and the author is Kerry Hudson. It’s on a list for a Guardian book prize, but I’ll still give it a go. Have either of you come across it?

  10. This bunch were damned lucky, had that sea ice not moved with the wind they would have died, there was no ice breaker within easy travelling distance and they were 6 miles from open sea, couldn’t use dynamite obviously. Plus the Canadian govt were only prepared to send observers to see if they could help. This was up in Inuit country, I expect the govt would have been happy if the abos had just killed and eaten them, solved all their problems.
    As usual, the Canadians are very good at talking anything to death rather than actually doing anything!

    As for commenting, I generally do unless it is about sport or competitions, neither of which float my boat!

  11. Hi Sheona,

    No I’ve not heard of the book or Kerry Hudson. Once you’ve finished the novel, let me know what you thought of it. Closer to home I would recommend Louise Welsh’s debut thriller, The Cutting Room, which is based in Glasgow. It is an exciting and quick read. As usual, there’s not enough months in the year and I haven’t got around to reading any of her other books.

    On our distinguished competition (MYT) I blogged as JW. Moving to Word Press engineered a name change. It’s a long story. JW or TR is fine with me.
