No, I don't want to 'subscribe' to 'feeds'. Go away!!! I have my favourite blogs that I click on every day or so to see if there's anything new. That's part of the fun. I don't want them 'delivered', eviscerated and filleted, to my 'desktop' or whatever. Some I know I will see something new every day - Granny, and the excellent Diamond Geezer; others I drop by occasionally to see what they've been up to - Carrie, Mort, JT. Occasionally I forget one for a few weeks, and then I have the pleasure of catching up with a good, solid read. I did this recently with Nev, now of Waterlily. I promised I'd give him a mention and then completely forgot! Sorry Nev. Nev's blog is another good read - it's fascinating to have a glimpse into the randomly selected lives of people whose only common feature is boat interest. He is also an early (if nervous) convert to the cause I am currently zealously espousing, i.e. draining colanders the right way up. I reckon Waterlily is definitely a boat blog - Granny hasn't picked it up yet; maybe I got there first. But Andrew will read this now, via his 'RSS' (exaggerated Homer Simpson style air quotes there) 'feed' and will no doubt castigate me again for being such an old stick in the mud, before adding Nev deservedly to the boatroll.
