In New England, May and June were cold and wet, but now the last 10 days have been nothing but sun  and dry heat. Spectacular weather, and I was able to spend part of it on the ocean on our little skiff, navigating the wakes of bigger boats. Summer bliss.

Pics or GTFO. :)

Just read about it. It seems the 35 year old woman did it.

It's all out on Solihull Updates now, with the usual outpouring of grief from people who didn't know this prick. "Lovely man", "always had a joke"  "smashing fella RIP"etc.

In reality most of his family didn't speak to him as they hated him, for someone who worked serving food his hygiene was a disgrace, he was an alcoholic, and a serial drink driver. Every copper at Solihull North knew his name.

He also liked to try and bully women, and young kids.

So no, Solihull people, he was not a "nice fella". Try asking his step-children!

That pisses me off when people die and whether or not they were decent folk or not you get people blabbing shit. I'd have to really hate someone to wish them dead, but I know a few people that if they did die they wouldn't be missed by no one.

Just had a quick look. Yes it's all 'what a lovely man' and 'hope that evil bitch gets life'  

she was wrong to do what she did, although I'm sure she knows that now, but god knows what he was doing to her for her to snap. Maybe she weren't too level headed herself. Either way it's a lose lose situation.

Indeed, he was so vile his death has made an 84 year old great - grandmother a happier person.

Funny thing, his first son was adopted, and he told the mother he'd only go through with it if the kid had HIS exact same name. Decades later he disowned him for being gay. Yes, on top of everything else he was a bigot and a racist.

yeah, she looks pretty fit from what I've seen, what she'd be doing anywhere near an unwashed pensioner I have no idea.

But like I said before his MO was stalking, and he was outside her flat in his car at 1am. People need to hear both sides.

I know, these days it didn't happen if you haven't documented it and put it on Facebook and Instagram.

Certainly does sound a bit dodgy. Hopefully the truth will out.

My nipper just got grade 5 drums.

No more Benton Street Bop over and over and over and over...

I expect the neighbour will be equally pleased.

I just went to this new Mexican place down the street. Nice little room, tons of sunlight, and people watching, unpretentious menu, two TV's that both had the Gold Cup on with volume. Most bars in this area don't have TV's, and this Mexican guy loves his footy, so we connected on that level. He's also some sort of ambient music guy, really obscure soundscape stuff. So much better than the Hot94 garbage everywhere else. Great room, but the bartender looked like he stepped out of a mid nineties Eurotrash nightclub, fake tan, oversized power watch, cologne. Bit of a dandy. I'll be back to convince the owner to hire me.

That's a relief, I always wondered whether Earl Zinger ever did escape from Ibiza. :D

Show him you know how to make a proper Margarita with no sweetened, pre-made mix and no blender and the job will be yours.  I bet the Eurotrash guy has never seen one that didn't look like a smoothie.

Mexican restaurants can always be counted on to show footy on the TV around here.  Whenever we go to one, my wife usually makes sure not to leave me a seat facing a screen if she can help it.:(   Otherwise, she knows she'll struggle for adult conversation...

Been a good day today. Elder daughter finally got a 'proper' job, and Mrs. M and I put down a new garden path, made with bricks recycled from our old barbecue. Very pleased with it. 

Looking good! My missus had me bring in about 2 tonnes of wood chips over the last few days as she's converting our vegetable beds into "no till, no dig" beds. In any case I am happy as it means less digging for me.

The idea is that everything is mulched deeply all year round, so there's no soil erosion or compacting, meaning that we'll never have to water or weed. You dig a trench down to the compost and then sow in the soil, as the seeds grow you fill around the plants with wood chips again. It's supposed to do wonders for your garden. She's got mushroom spawn coming in the day after tomorrow that she wants to inoculate the wood chips with, so she's hoping to get some Garden Giant edibles with the veg starting from around September with several flushes throughout the year. I've got a mixture of oak and pine in the chips - it smells lovely.

New England weather is incredibly diverse. Tonight, there's a massive fog bank floating in off the sea, lush as can be- the moisture captures the scent of blooming flowers. It's a tropical air mass, and I'm in heaven.
