#480 Pepper for Breakfast

Some people put sugar on their Co-Co Pops,
I like black pepper on my Ham and Cheese.

#479 Jack Kerouak

pic from google images.
















I just watched the first hour of On the Road a film of the book by Jack Kerouac. I didn't think much of it :-(

I've read On the Road and enjoyed it so much that I've re-read it more than once. I've also read some of Kerouac's other books like Doctor Sax, The Dharma Bums and  Big Sur.

But this film didn't do it for me.
Books - Yes.
Film - No.

#476 Hawaii Ironman Triathlon

13th October is Ironman World Championship day in Hawaii.

In 1987 I was there and I bought a pair of socks from the Ironman shop and I've still got them (unused). Plus a cap that came in the goody bag.

Collectors Items?

#474 80's

This is my last souvenir from the Eighties (apart from my JPG suit).

I used to go back and forth most every week across the channel to Normandy collecting butter and cheese for resale in England. I imported a lot of special bakers cheese from a dairy in Montebourg and have wonderful memories of the Directeur, a Monsieur Couchoud, who would treat our whole family, when we all visited, to the most magnificent four hour lunches.

Sadly he has passed away and so has the dairy, it's now a rubbish recycling factory - and my Montebourg ash tray is a bit chipped too!

#472 Peas

I've gradually changed to a "Paleolithic" diet. 
Very few foods that start with P in Spanish; 
Pan, Pasta, Pizza, Postre, Patatas. 

Although I do consume Pescado y Pimienta. 
Phew! :-)

#471 Look - Single Speed!

I've built a bike from bits from my spares box - except for the second-hand pedals for which I paid Cicles Extrem 1€. They wanted to give them to me for nothing but I insisted on paying (they are a shop after all).
