Plooterin aboot

Blogging is a funny thing. I've had enquiries this week already from a man in Australia trying to locate old recordings, a man from Scotland trying to find an old poem, two people looking for family tree information, and an enquiry to give a presentation in the Autumn about new media as a communications tool. They're the nice ones, which show that the casual 'plooterin aboot' that this blog is can actually have some positive benefit.

Then are the strange oddballs who monitor every word, who poke around here and on various associated blogs, and who then concoct dark shadowy theories about some mysterious hidden agenda. I know of a handful of such people who hoke around here, and there are probably more. A normal body would make direct contact and get to know you over a pot o' tay, but then again these maybe aren't normal folk.

So, whoever's out there, if you want to get in touch please do. I'm out and about most weeks, so I can meet up any time. And when I'm at home the kettle is usually on and the door is usually open. But then again if you'd prefer to make things up, then fire away. It'll be more interesting than the mundane reality anyway.

I was going to let you off with that one! Glad they were useful. You'd be amazed at the middens of stuff I have lying about here!
