My only revision of this page is a statememnt that I will  not respond to any writers begging to be reviewed , like bold children bawling for sweets IF they do not take the trouble to read mine ( or others)  Equally I have come to loath to see those  stacato , comments you can churn out to any piece- awessome - I really identified with this piece; This piece had me thinking of....etc

they are patenlty superficial and most of them are intended to ' globalise ' their own popularity.

Please desist from appendind this drivel from my site.

I welcome anything constructive or destructive.

I think I can handle the truth , but I will not abide this duplicious drivel and will speedily  delete any such requests posted here.

They are vexation to the spirit!

Ive put a new image of self up; did you notice -

Now that Ive turned 60 vanity is something almost  too preposterous  to contemplate.

There have been changes also in my responses - I am less infernally negatively critical.

I welcome all the new writers , and promise the new reader that I shall be more  circumspect and thoughtful aot my erstwhille scathing critiques - Let it roll man!  and give me ' stick '  as   you feel the need .

As for my views on celebrities - I'm afraid I give no quarter there

None !

Ive had to add one more codesil . I have been invited to comment on other wrriters work. I have never invited anyone to read mine .

Mine is an open house policy. Take it or leave it ; no invitations are sent to solicit comments. None whatever . Ever.


Please , it would give me immeasureable  solace not to feel I have to read anymore work by being solicitated .

I've just changed my image ; twice in past 24 hrs.. Kept getting these'bad hair days'

this is another one


changed my fcae again.. you see this is not really me !

Its a guy I get to sit in as my alter self - teke note GS.. CP
