So here it is. My first blog.
‘Hello world’ it says. I thought perhaps that was a little too presumptuous to begin with, but I’ve left it in anyway. Well you never know. There may just be someone out there reading this, and I do want to say ‘hello’! Maybe it’s the ‘world’ bit that’s slightly daunting. As I said before, presumptuous.
That didn’t stop someone I heard the other day though. I was sitting, having a coffee, and the young man at the next table suddenly turns to his companion and says, “Stick with me, Honey, and I’ll take you to the ends of the universe.” The companion was female and rather attractive; yes, I looked. Was he just being presumptuous or really going there. Anyway, I made a mental note and ‘googled’ it. There was a mountain in Spain called Universales, a bit cryptic perhaps. More hopeful was a restaurant in Nagakot, Nepal called “The End of the Universe”, another one too on Main Street, Manayunk, Philadelphia. Also a pub in Portland and a Starbucks in Memphis.
So on second thoughts, ‘Hello world’!
