Blooming Russians Causing Trouble in Blighty
Blooming Russians. They're like rats in Londongrad. You're never more than six-feet away from one of them. I'm in Notting Hill (sometimes). Loads of 'em round our way. But who are they?  What are they? What do they want? Are they dodgy or are they kosher? T...

The Everchanging Graffiti of the Krog Street Tunnel
Built in 1912, the Krog Street Tunnel in Atlanta is a vital artery for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicular traffic. But that's not all. The interior of the tunnel itself is a chaotic collage of graffiti art and something else to behold.    It's a living bre...

Playing the Gent in London Town
Back in London after two years in the colonies (North America), it was time to check out the shops and bag some new mufti .    Plaid. Gingham. Seersucker suits with dicky bows. Yuck. Men's fashion in America is too meh-meh-meh for me (h). Can't get no Tacch...

Back in London after Deux Years in Yankland
  After a cramped eight-hour flight on the red-eye from Atlanta, I touched down in London's Notting Hill.    Headache. Backache. Creaking knees. And thoroughly mullered. But not everything was in a state of long haul decay. It was still mid-morning and the ...

Season's Reading
At this time of year, I always curl up with one of my favorite little books.   Charles Dickens' story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, who is taught the true meaning of Christmas by four ghostly visitors, is one of the Victorian author's best loved tales. Ever since i...

Meditating in Le Brooklyn
The view from my room in Brooklyn Brooklyn. It's a great hood, in a great city. It's New York, baby.   Manhattan from the promenade I'd not been to New York since November 2009 and made the mistake of flying into La Guardia airport, which looks more like a ...

Russians Reading My Blog
There's a lot of Russians reading my blog, folks.   To paraphrase Fred Dryer : "You tell your Russian friends, don't get us mad." What in Sam Hill are these red communists and greenback siloviki trying to glean from these Sunday night expat ramblings? God o...

Five Years in the USA
 Hip hip hooray, it's five years living in the USA!    Half a decade in sun kissed Atlanta, the "city of trees," the city "too busy to hate" and the God made capital of the Old South. Here I am, five years into my third continent on Planet Earth in the 21st...

My Hack Role Models
I remember an inebriated hack giving me some lofty advice about working for the Daily Telegraph in the summer of 1998. "See here," he said, "you can't burst into the office like you're Charles Bronson or Bruce Willis." The poor deluded fool. I pointed out t...
