This is the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am an English and Philosphy graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I've trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web designer and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one. Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.

    Top. I had this, floodlighting and all. It got in the way, quite frankly. It’s a shame more people didn’t play it actually on a table top; if we didn’t have to scrabble about on the floor, less pieces would have got knelt on; and therefore this set wouldn’t be one short.

    And if only we’d known that kneeling is a privelege of the young. I couldnt go for two minutes each way kneeling without at least some sort cushion. And then m’ helpers would have to get me up. Table top is definitely the way to go.
    BTW ooofff… 0-3 at Ipswich, isn’t it?
