Boris Johnson gone. Manchester City Champions of Europe. Ben Sidran at Ronnie Scotts. Madness at Cannock Forest. Mixes received from Boz Boorer of our new album and they sound amazing. Have I had a good week? You bet! I watched the final with my nephew. In 1999, I took him to Wembley to watch City beat Gillingham in a thrilling third tier play off final, as Manchester United won the treble. I told him that City is the hard path, United is the easy path, but ultimately City will be the one that will give you happiness. I never dreamed of this.
Anyway, enough of me, what have our esteemed local tweeters been up to?

I finally got to see a hedgehog in my back garden!
I've been putting food out each night that was being eaten, but I wasn't sure by what animal.
