There is not a soul who does not have to beg alms of another, either a smile, a handshake, or a fond eye.

Breaking all the rules. April, 2010.

If you don't mind me saying it, I have magnificent legs.

Ask anybody, they'll tell you.

You are extremely fortunate that you don't have mine. They work ok though.

Roddy, chicken legs!

Alan, aw shucks!

Baino, they're my fourth favourite. Take the camera everywhere and take photos all the time. Some are bound to some good. That's my philosophy.

Somewhat ahead of my goal of 80 , and about 110 more than TV shows that I saw. The highlights? Well, I gave five stars to the following: Jesmyn Ward's Salvage the Bones (dogfighting and Hurricane Katrina) Golden Boys by Sonya Hartnett (a wonderfully dark 1980s Aussie suburban coming of age novel) Jarett Kobek's blistering I Hate the Internet (Vonnegut for the post-ironic age) Andreï Makine's dreamlike The Archipelago of Another Life (a chase across the Siberian taiga at the tail-end of Stalin's rule);  Żanna Słoniowska's complex The House with the Stained-Glass Window (a wonderfully translated cross-cultural, multi-generational tale of the women in one particular family in Lviv);  This Is Not a Novel by Jennifer Johnston (an original novel framed around fragments of memory and the ways with which parent
