... Thankyou kind all for the kind comments on my recent blog. We are shocked by the scan and Her-indoors has spent £68 for an online Norge course. She can count to ten now. Sounds like someone strangling an opera singer...

    Blog: Turning Point. The usual gamut of emotions your writing inspires. High five; lump in the throat; prickle behind the eyes; shock; surprise; satisfaction. You have a knack. Your stuff touches people.

    Unexpected, though perfect ending to your blog, Prop, heart in mouth some of the time. I liked the application of very grown up experience to a school-age problem.

    I wondered what the outcome would be when I read your blog, Prop. Had a lump in my throat at the end. Congratulations to you and Mrs Prop on your forthcoming granddaughter. Happy times ahead. :-)

    Turning Point. Beno. He was always small for his size. But even at two, he was a force of nature.  He had an unnatural density on par with a bag of cement which surprised those who tried to pick him up. Mini rugby suited his nature and he ...

    Et voilà, you made me cry. Bravo Beno, bravo Prop and Her-Indoors. Parenting is a never-ending mine field, I've always proned non-violence to our chilren, and have gotten ruffled when my husband told them to return anything received twice as hard. I won't change my non-violent stand, but this is a step into understanding my husband's mind set. Thanks Prop.

    The story is a familiar one and is the main theme of my WIP. Bullied kid, takes revenge. The moral of this story is don't fuck with Beno! Prop, I request you Beta-read my novel. Easy reading, but probably full of errors, and reject pile certainty with opening chapters that need livening up. There's a military connection which could do with padding out with some ideas (bullied kids teacher is ex-military) and the ending points to a sequel in which the teacher will be more high profile. As a bullied kid himself I'd also be interested in Beno's thoughts, if he's got nothing better to do! If anyone else wants to Beta-Read just PM. It's not 100% edited, but is getting there slowly.

    Anyway, reading 'Us' by David Nicholls. very funny,( and relevant to this blog).

    Is there any reason why they wouldn't want to be known? It's all very cloak and dagger, like the satanic ritual scene in Eyes Wide Shut.

    Who are the Randoms? Why do they exist? And are they like the Mysterons out of Captain Scarlet?
