Toujours, je suis désolé pour mes amis( et amies) français(es), mais il est difficile pour moi d'écire en français. Peut-être un jour...

Long Overdue

From Picato (see RH side of page). Source: here

I said a long time ago that I love cats, and from time to time I would put a picture up with a quotation to suit.

Well the cat this time is a fine fellow sure enough, but I couldn't find a quotation to suit him, so I have added two quotes that I hope might amuse.

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat. ~Albert Einstein

A catless writer is almost inconceivable. It's a perverse taste, really, since it would be easier to write with a herd of buffalo in the room than even one cat; they make nests in the notes and bite the end of the pen and walk on the typewriter keys. ~Barbara Holland

Albert Einstein was a very intelligent man. His explanation is very clear and simple.

Certainly intelligent and elegant too to use a cat!

Sod the Law!

Music and Radio Blog Club

Radio Blog Club, a good friend for a while appears to be in some legislative difficulty...

However, in tribute to its brave effort, I shall leave the existing track on this page (which amazingly still works)

Sadly my Playlist no longer works (hence its removal) thanks to the absurd "Hadopi" legislation in France. Apologies to all.
