27/11/12 - Some of these old beeches must be years old, These ones were in a long line up towards Lewesdon hill, there used to be an iron age settlement on top of the hill so these trees may well have marked the edge of an old road.
24/12/12 - I was lucky enough to perform at the Dorchester hotel in London recently and thought this Gingerbread model of the hotel was amazing, it stands just beyond the foyer and I am surprised it has not been gobbled up yet.
23/11/12 - This is Horsell Common just on the ende of Woking in the west of Surrey, It was here in War of the Worlds by H G Wells that the first Martian spacecraft landed on earth. Maybury hill was the location of the reporters home and that is just a couple of miles away.

7/12/12 - When I was a kid I was fascinated with the stars and planets, the lady living next door was a keen astronomer and helped me develop my interest by lending me her telescope, I have been a keen astronomer ever since. When I was 18, this same lady booked me to entertain at her sons birthday party, it was my first ever paid booking and my first ever magic performance. Last night that same lady passed away after a 22 year long battle with cancer. Thank you Jan Robinson for everything you ever did for me, there is another star in the sky tonight.

14/11/12 - I took a recent trip to London and Covent Garden where Christmas has arrived. One of the best things about Covent Garden is a little shop dedicated to the Moomins.
