I plan an exciting project.

Things that have kept me away from the computer – #4 in a series of 945722572.

I clap my hands in anticipation.

My life has been a bit rutty recently, what with looking after the Toddler and playing Scramble on Facebook and practising ‘When the Levee Breaks’ on the banjo – but all this is about to change.

This is the wonder of the Internet, you see. You can be ambitious. You can sit down and research this and order that and email her, and before you can say ‘R – Tape Loading Error’, you have come up with a plan.

So actually this has not kept me away from the computer at all. Just a different area of computers.

Anyway, it is a plan. And I don’t think it is exaggerating to say that it is a plan that will not only make a difference to my own life, but to the lives of people in an entire region of an entire country.

Continued tomorrow…


  1. Could that be…. Norfolk, JonnyB?
    Not a Post office, is it? Look you?

  2. When I looked at the content of your last post, I took the word “rutty” to mean something completely different. I thought the mid-life crisis had finally arrived and next thing you would be driving about in open top cars, obsessing about inconsequentials and … oh.

  3. Oooh – sounds interesting. Good luck, Jonny.

  4. ‘Rutty’ as in farm fields surely? From tractors – using the field as a metaphor for life. Must we always reduce everything to the lowest common denominator?
    Just remind me please of # 1,2 and 3. I think I’ve lost the plot momentarily.

  5. Little has changed in Norfolk for hundreds of years, but if anyone’s going to change things, it will be Jonny! Good luck!

  6. I hate to break this to you – but playing “When the Levee Breaks” doesn’t prevent hurricanes from knocking down houses, Jonnie.

    We tried that last week here. Galveston still got blasted.

  7. ‘ow you teeze us wiz your talk of zee beeg plan!
    Sounds exciting! ;o)

  8. Ack! I used to have a ZX spectrum too.

  9. I knew that Village Blogging would catch on eventually.

  10. If that’s Halifax County, Nova Scotia, I need some advance warning to pack up the kittens and hop a plane to a secret destination…

  11. We’ve heard all this big talk before but what does it ever come to, JonnyB? Going postal on youtube, a chicken run, or nobbut nostalgia for a swingy-outy Scoobie Doo bookcase. You’ll be back to writing [stories about] excrement or rumours of excrement before we know it.

  12. Nonono – this is the big one!!!

    And it is not Halifax, Lisa. Worry not. It is a place far more deserving.

  13. Does it involve eggs, perchance? Scrambled eggs, specifically?

  14. don’t leave me out in Paris !


  15. I will sit here agog until you tell us more. I hope it will be soon.

  16. Oooh!You’re finally getting that Norfolk Chicken Porn site up and running!

  17. No No No. Let me guess.

    You blow up the Houses of Parliament, deny your part – announce that in fact, it was Parliament who tried to blow you up.

    I am a sidekick you know.

  18. Judging by your inexorably-expanding rear-end and saggy midriff, your master plan to consume every last Mars bar and salt’n’vinegar crisp in Norfolk has been going for a few years now. Or is this something different? If so, you should probably reconsider, whatever it is. Multi-tasking isn’t exactly one of your strong points, Jonny…

  19. Are you going to be putting in a bid for HBOS on the back of your egg business profits?

  20. Jonny, don’t forget to cancel the Sky TV!

  21. “Normal service will be resumed in early October.”

    Is it early October yet?

  22. Just found this blog, it’s ACE!
