At the showing of The Dark Knight, they played a trailer for Watchmen, due to be released next year. It looked utterly gorgeous, expecially on Imax. Visuals were spot on perfect, as far as I could see – it was as if the pages from the graphic novel had come to life.

Have just booked tickets to see The Dark Knight at IMAX in Thinktank, Birmingham. I’m not working on Friday, so I have got a ticket for their midday Planetarium show, then the afternoon looking round the science museum, and some 5-storey-high Batman in the early evening.

As my old mate Clive used to say – “If a thing’s worth doing, it’s worth doing to excess!”

I usually have two holidays a year – one for me alone, and another one where I take my mum away for a week.

This year, I seem to have skipped my solo holiday – I will probably end up spending it in the garden, or going out for days.

But for my holiday with mum, she said she fancied going to Dorset.

So I have managed to find a town cottage in Weymouth for a week in early September – only 4 weeks away. I googled “self-catering Dorset” and came up with Rupert – one of 7 cottages converted from stables, each named after the shire horse it used to stable, ours being Rupert.

It looks pretty nice, we have a room each, a decent lounge and modern kitchen *and* private parking; and it’s pretty central to the Old Harbour area of Weymouth, so there should be lots of local shops and pubs and restaurants we can visit without the car.

Previous visitors – at least, the observant ones – will have noticed that my old web page has been replaced by a blog.

I decided to do this for a number of reasons. The old page had not been updated in a long time. I had been planning to redesign the whole site for a while, but had never gotten round to it. At the same time I had recently started blogging, and decided that the blog would make a more interesting and relevant front page to the site.
