Shameless Plug

Keen observers will have noticed the new book to the right of my posts, and will also probably remember that for the last year I have made numerous references to a project I once called Classic Constructs. Patently that isn't the title now, but Built for Britain is still a mix of the very large- the cantilevered Forth Bridge, and the very small- a Fenland pill box. And just for good measure spreads on corrugated iron (of course) and rows of beach huts. Including these at Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk coast, built on stilts to give them a chance on the ever-shifting foreshore and a place underneath to hide from mummy and daddy. You too can live the dream, because if you go to the Built for Britain website you'll be able to enter a competition to spend a glorious weekend for you and your pal of choice at The Crown Hotel in Wells. Plus you'll get £100 of spendo which means you could go and get something made out of grey serge in Trouser Town. Good luck!


  1. plug away - very nicely done. Got me on the case anyhow.

  2. Congrats on the new book...what's coming next? We can't get enough you know.

  3. a man after my own heart...a shameless plug followed by a row of beach huts.

  4. Those beach huts are wonderful.

  5. Just the thing to warm the cockles of my heart (those curious cardiac shellfish), me being a lover of wooden architecture and all. I pester my postwoman every day in the hope that she'll deliver my latest Amazon order containing your book.

  6. A colleague handed me the slimmed-down teaser copy with the words "Here - you'll love this" a couple of weeks ago. He was dead right.

  7. Thankyou all, that's brilliant.

  8. Speculation, I know - BUT - it's Tuesday again and I have to go out before the appearence of the FtF post - so here's my guess - The dog eating the baby in the pram appears to have three canine teeth instead of two.

  9. Thankyou Diplo. While you've been making that up this week's puzzle pic. is already up. Quick, Diplo, quick!

  42. I just figured out that my computer has this kind of trojan. I was running pretty much all of the Anti-virus things my computer has. The main one says there is nothing there and my Windows defender says I have two trojans so I'm not sure what to do. I'm thinking of buying or building a new one. . Right now I have intel. Im not sure which is best like Dell, Miscrosoft, etc. I need a gaming computer which can also be used as a school work computer. Any ideas?.
