Some of you may have four hours to watch this. I thought it apposite in view of Janus’ post on advertising.

Steyn on Trump and Sweden

I’m sure you’re all a little tired of Trump, Steyn and the Sweden thing, but this is worth listening to.

To Abingdon this afternoon for Mrs J to buy some material at Masons one of the  apparently decreasing number of  haberdashers and shops selling material. Anyway whilst Mrs J did her shopping I had a coffee in the Square where I took this picture .

In a quiet way Abingdon is an attractive little town like Wallingford,Thame and a few other places around here. I think the reason is that they have never been wildly prosperous and didn’t suffer a precipitous post industrial decline.

Toward Point Lighthouse

Apropos of nothing really. I came across this picture when I recommissioned the applemac  time capsule which is where we store our thousands (a peril of digital cameras) of photographs.

The picture is a little pixilated, it was taken at some distance from the boat belonging to my now deceased friend and colleague Robbie Hunter.  It’s a great photograph because of the light and colours for which I can take no credit.

BTW the ‘Tow’ in Toward is pronounced as in Towel.

I have in the past railed against twitter, however since Donald became president I have opened a twitter account and am having great fun following the 45th President of the USA@realDonaldTrump .

Trump of course also has a Facebook account and is using social media brilliantly and it’s becoming clear that most of his critics have completely underestimated him.
