Poor Rhubarb

Rhubarb is getting a bad press at the moment here in Chesterfield. Traditionally they say here in England that the only thing of a pig you can’t eat is its squeak or grunt if you prefer. Rhubarb being a faggot seems a contradiction in terms but hey that’s Chesterfield for ya !

Here for your education is the Wikipedia explanation of the word Faggot.

Faggots are a traditional dish in the UK, especially South and Mid Wales and the Midlands of England. It is made from meat off-cuts and offal, especially pork. A faggot is traditionally made from pig’s heart, liver and fatty belly meat or bacon minced together, with herbs added for flavouring and sometimes bread crumbs.


From Where I’m Standing

There was a time when I was going to rename this Blog ‘From Where I’m Standing’ and incorporate my political opinions and musings of the world from my position of from where I’m standing, do you get what I mean ? I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve wanted to come on here, get on my soapbox and blather wildly about what’s going on in the world. That idiot Donald Trump, the futility of self perpetuating capitalism, the political situation here in the UK and our inept and politicians, the corrupt and manipulative who  spoon feed crap to a willing population.
I’m sure you don’t want to hear my rantings but I can’t tell you how tempting it is to use this platform. What I will tell you is that my approach to street photography is fuelled by my belief that a knowledge of what’s going on in the world is essential to making the images I do.

Occupy Yourself

It’s not always easy to know what to do with the kids at the school holidays. Everything can be so expensive as well. They get bored so easily.
There comes a point in your life when you have to take responsibility for your own education and with that find your own interests to occupy yourself with. The sooner you realise that the better off you’ll be.
