After a rather long blogging sabbatical,  I have been coaxed to start writing again by Steven White the Journalist who has started up an online newspaper for Morley. You can find stuff about street furniture at https://yourmorley.com/2016/03/17/morley-musings-with-ian-grey-march-17-2016/ and my take on singing at https://yourmorley.com/2016/03/24/morley-musings-ian-grey-24316/. More to come!

I am getting a large number of spam comments that Akismet isn’t catching. As it has become a pain, I’ve closed off comments on old posts (over 90 days). If you really want to comment on something, do it here.



Being called shades of grey…

Wed, 11 Jul 2012 18:41:36 +0000

I wonder if my hit counts have gone up? Nothing pervy here, apart from the incoming comments on the “Navy Blue knickers” post that are a bit iffy on occasion. I was tagged on facebook in this photo though…



Godspell to be staged in Morley next week

Wed, 11 Jul 2012 18:37:38 +0000

From today’s Obtiser…



I am Spartacus…

Story here, here, here, even here. My view here. (NSFW)



Bradford CityPark

Sun, 25 Mar 2012 12:25:31 +0000

I have been watching this public space being constructed ever since we moved into our new building at work. It has been much maligned as an expensive folly but finally Bradford was buzzing with vast crowds & surreal attractions. Yesterday evening was the grand opening Finale’, a climax to an afternoon of quirky events and …



So David finally gets to try out one of his Christmas presents…

Just in case you hadn’t worked it out…



A journey to the Empire of Makemland*

Sun, 01 Jan 2012 20:58:23 +0000

I haven’t really been to Sunderland very much. My Mum worked there for about a year in the late 1960s, in a shop on Fawcett Street, the main retail street of the town. (It was still a town then, it became a City in the early 90’s). Living in Newcastle, Sunderland was a 2nd rate …



So as the festive season approaches…

A quick opinion from the Office Grinch.  (Hat tip to George for the anti-festive hat, also Pickaxe Pete for the photo. Pete says he has a hat like that as well somewhere).



Movember Update

Day sixteen in the big bruiser house. I had a vague fear that my hairy lip would be more white than black but fortunately that isn’t the case. I’m looking forward to Friday… By the way, you can sponsor me here… http://mobro.co/Shades42



RIP the King of Bling

Sat, 29 Oct 2011 20:24:51 +0000

(For the background to this Photo, see an earlier blogpost here) For all his faults, he was very sincere in his charity work, as confirmed by my Auntie who was a Nurse; he wasn’t precious about emptying bedpans. He actually had an Office (or at least a room with his name on the door) on …



Under the Spell

Wed, 12 Oct 2011 12:05:26 +0000

I became enthralled by the musical Godspell back in the early 1970s. I regularly used to go to the Newcastle Theatres to see all sorts of shows, by myself or with my Mum. (I was still a teenager back then!) We thought we knew what to expect with Godspell as we had seen Jesus Christ …



The Town Hall Clock

Sun, 09 Oct 2011 16:54:27 +0000

This is a song that I wrote to be performed at Morley Folk club, where I am a regular floor singer. It has had one public outing, after which I subsequently revised it to make the verses longer and to have less choruses. After all, it isn’t a shanty! I’m pleased to say that the …



Cash for… err…the war on terror

Sat, 24 Sep 2011 13:09:47 +0000

(Pay no attention to that rude word near the curtain). These guys crack me up. More over at IndieGogo. (A couple of years back I bought Karen the War on Terror board game for Christmas. We have yet to play it…)



Shaking the money tree…

Fri, 16 Sep 2011 20:51:09 +0000

I’ve never had any involvement with Bailiffs, however I have recently read that they frequently break the law but the Police aren’t interested, calling it a Civil matter. Then Bradford Council tried to swindle Dr. Richard North (from the EUReferendum blog…) Thieves-charter To-kill a bailiff Attacking the money tree The siege of bradford Fighting back …



Life goes on…

Sat, 13 Aug 2011 09:22:12 +0000

This touching thought arrived in my inbox from a friend who is facing the imminent loss of a loved one. People are wicked, wonderful and everything in between. In the end, it’s all just a question of finding the right ones to be with, isn’t it? And remembering to enjoy them while you’ve got them …



The Victorian Internet

Mon, 08 Aug 2011 20:48:00 +0000

This is apparently the last remaining cable hut anywhere- where undersea cables come ashore from foreign climes. (Although not trans-atlantic, being south of Lands End, these ones go to places like Portugal, Gibraltar & Bilbao). It is a unique relic of the Cable Museum at Porthcurno. Despite both Karen and myself being steeped in Telecommunications …



Back from the west country

Sat, 06 Aug 2011 18:45:35 +0000

We have just spent a very pleasant week down in Cornwall, staying on a small, quiet caravan site. Reviewing my photos, I was bemused to see that visitors to St. Michael’s Mount were happy to paddle across the still covered causeway rather than queue up for the little boats. (We caught the boat going, walked across …



Tools of the trade

A very clever collage leaving present to colleague Brian by his Boss Graham…



Not The Royal Wedding Video

(This is based on an American wedding walkdown seen on Youtube a while back). Hat tip Ken Frost…
