Another farewell

London Thames

On Saturday was bluemeanie’s schools Founders’ Day cum prize-giving so we spent several hours there watching demonstrations, and listening to speeches and singing hymns (the prize-giving takes the form of an inter-faith service). Thereafter, bluemeanie and I dashed into London to see Lynette and Alan left for Australia today. We spent several hours with friends and family at The Ship and Whale in Rotherhithe. The Argentina/Mexico match, dubbed the best so far in this World Cup, was on (several) screens around the pub so we managed to catch some of the highlights.

Today I did some gardening and then watched the fooball.  My knowlege of football is not so great, which is why I have been finding the Guardian Unlimited World Cup Podcast very useful, especially for behind the scenes information. They generally have a good panel discussion and are in touch (“via the miracle that is the telephone”) with reporters not only in Germany but as far afield as Sydney and Brazil.

I also played around with a tool called The iTunes Signature Maker. Listen to my 20 second iTunes signature here (Warning: large file!) I notice my mobile phone tune pops up as one of my “most played” tracks. How sad.
