Mark Thomas - Belching Out Out the Devil

His dispatches show on Coca Cola is here:

Blog update - Summer 2008

I haven't updated the blog in ages, so here's a checkilist of some of the thing's I've not blogged about yet...

I am a Godfather - Grace's Christening was in April

We were also "In Bruges". Taking the Eurotunnel across, and meeting up with our friends Rober and Karo, we visited a brewery, tried many beers (all in different glasses) and had some nice food (though Karo tried Steak tartare - raw beef... ugh).
Facebook photos here.

We went to see Avenue Q, a rude musical largely inspired by (and is in the style of) Sesame Street. Jo liked so much she went to see it twice!

My fired Will turned 30, and came over to the UK briefly from Oz. We met in his old hometown of Bradninch where the local music festival was going on and had a few local ales. Photos here.

After living in Brighton for 5 ish years, and never seing the Pride parade, we finally did. It rained for most of the morning, but it was pretty funny, with some outrageous costumes, with the funniest being the Dolly Parton's. Facebook photos. Some other site's photos here.

Our friends Rober & Karo got married in a nice town near Vienna.

Jon & Kate Plus 8

When we were in canada, we watched Jon & Kate Plus 8, a reality television show about the Gosselin family, consisting of parents Jon and Kate and their eight children—a set of fraternal twin girls and a set of sextuplets (three girls and three boys). It was compelling viewing and utterly hilarious.

Sam Sparro

One of the best new CDs we heard was Sam Sparro's. As he was playing just down the road, we thought we'd go visit. It was the first proper standing up gig i've been to in years, but was pretty enjoyable, though seemed very short, i guess because he's only had one album.
There were a lot of young trendy kids there of course, don't know if i need to go get a stripey tshirt, tight black cardigan, tight jeans, pointy shoes and a check scarf...
