Hi there everyone.

I've not been posting for a while. Being up in London on client sites during the day makes it hard to post / read e-mails.

So, what's been happening? Well I'm still on a bit of a high from the Concorde trip. I guess that will wear off over time but it feels good. I've put the second tranch of pictures up on my website so visit and marvel :)

I've worked a few long days ... Tuesday I had 7.5 hours of driving on top of a normal day at Cardiff. Actually the week has been a bit confusing. On Monday I was travelling back from the USA then Tuesday felt like a Monday and the rest of the week was just confusing.

Right now I'm off to bed for an early start in London - writing a new bit of a system for a client. Not contactable via e-mail 'till evening.

Quotes of The Day [Oct. 6th, 2003|12:43 am]

Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.
G. K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936)

So I went and looked and found the following quotes :-

How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?
Charles De Gaulle (1890 - 1970), in "Les Mots du General", 1962

Cheese - milk's leap toward immortality.
Clifton Fadiman (1904 - )

A poet's hope: to be,
like some valley cheese,
local, but prized elsewhere.
W. H. Auden (1907 - 1973), Collected Poems

DIE, n. The singular of "dice." We seldom hear the word, because there is a prohibitory proverb, "Never say die." At long intervals, however, some one says: "The die is cast," which is not true, for it is cut. The word is found in an immortal couplet by that eminent poet and domestic economist, Senator Depew:

A cube of cheese no larger than a die
May bait the trap to catch a nibbling mie.
Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914), The Devil's Dictionary

What happens to the hole when the cheese is gone?
Bertolt Brecht (1898 - 1956)

When cheese gets it's picture taken, what does it say?
George Carlin (1937 - )

OK, I know most of those aren't poets but they are still funny :P

Peace
peter
