This evening, I saw an odd thing in The Shire. It was a pink elephant on top of a little van. I hadn't taken any non prescription substances and I even have a photo to prove it. I sent my man from Magnum to capture the beast.

Elephant sightings in Plumsteadshire are rare, but I do think I have seen another one around Herbert Road.

Is it the same one?

This is most peculiar.

Apple keynote

I was hoping there would be a significant update to the iPhone, but alas no. I was particularly interested in more memory, 3G or above and higher megapixels. Not this time round Bucko (I've only just remembered this term. Remembered it from when I used to watch 'Happy Days' in the late 70's / early 80's. I think Richie Cunningham used to say it when riled).

Still, I'll have to thank Steve Jobs for not meeting my wish list as it's a really expensive marriage to enter into. As my folks used to tell me all the time, 'Don't buy it if you can't afford it'.

Mac Book Air

Oh mama, I want one.

So one of Apple's gems released in San Francisco today is the Mac Book Air. It's thin, it's superb eye-candy and it's thin. My only thought at the moment is with the limited about of ports. I've got so many peripherals which all require USB ports that I'd have to plug a USB extension lead thing in to spoil the sleek aerospatialesque lines of the Air. Well, I guess it's not aimed at people like me. I'll obviously need a Mac Book Pro Air.

Hello again

Boy oh boy, do I have a packed show for you lovely listeners this week. Well, I would if I had time to write; life's just too hectic nowadays. My new year's resolution is 1440 x 900 dpi - no, stop messing about, my resolution (which I'll definitely break), is to try and write Plumsteadshire more regularly.

Subjects I have on the boil are:-
1) Steve Jobs' Apple keynote speech in 9 hours time
2) finding religion in the Co Op
3) the boomtown that is Plumstead
4) UFO sightings over Thamesmead New Town
5) allegedly unseemly carryings-on at the Slade public lavvys
6) local stores we have loved

I've still got a Plumsteadshire website on the drawing board, but time is not on my side, so Blogger will have to do for the moment.
