No, No No [Night People] November... hope everyone has a great month!

Feeling depressed that this year I am [at present] unable to share my desktop calendars, revised for 2018. At the moment of typing out of the core 32 designs, 24 have been updated now with two more due for completion at some point either today or tomorrow. New typeface, altered title banner and some fresh thinking on current designs and a few new ones being created... one of which for a song that I have never done before. Freshest in my mind is the dramatic shift in appearance of 'All I Ever Wanted' to better reflect the promo although the red background and screen captures remain. =D

Well I still hope I can share these with you guys at some point! :/

just googled to see what is out there and thought I'd try testing these guys out! https://sarahtarrant.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-gHGCB6V/A

This image is the impressive haul I got 'free of charge' as part of our local ALDI reopening after an extensive four week refit this morning, most puzzling is the 'butternut squash' item extreme left... never seen anything like it and am currently scratching my head as to exactly what to do with it.

Sarah, I love butternut squash and cook it all the time! The two easiest things to do with it: One you can just chop it up (cut off the outer rind, which is easier once you've chopped it up a bit) and then you can just cook it or mash it like potatoes with some butter and garlic. Or, you can cut it in half the long way, remove the seeds, bake it in the oven and then stuff it with rice, lentils, meat, cheese, veggies or any combination thereof. Delicious!

Butternut squash makes a nice soup.

For me the excitement is building regarding my completing my collection of 2018 'Human League' themed desktop calendars. Of the core 32 designs now 28 have been updated for the coming year. Lots what I think are 'fresh thinking' including a brand new design of a 'song' that I have never tackled before. Just four still to do but hopefully it won't be too long now before they are all finished and I can search out a new 'free of charge' image sharing website. :)

More self-depreciation from Philip, I used to think perhaps this was an affectation but it seems to be sincere. Somehow I can't quite see him as a taxi driver. I suppose that if the band had broken up after Hysteria, when people started to leave the band, they might now be doing mundane jobs but thank goodness the three of them carried on.

Thanks for the info Stig :) Love the classic logo and that shade of red - crimson springs to mind - is stunning. I like the theme of the tour. Hopefully it means a re-vamped set list with some pleasant surprises. That means yes to Cruel Young Lover and a big NO to INYL =D

Why complain about the prices?

Depeche Mode were charging up to €300 so even at £84 max it’s still a hell of a lot cheaper. Why post the highest price and not the cheapest for comparison?
Duran Duran were also charging ‘up to’ €350 for most expensive ticket but you could still buy a decent ticket for €65

I seè they're not going to the Colston Hall this time,unless more dates get added, that'll please JJ. I'll have to make the trek down to Bournemouth, so be it. The BIC is a great venue with seats and a good dance area plus good acoustics. The only downside is the long wait to get out of the car park, I'll probably wait in the venue until the big decant has occurred.

Tickets go on sale from the BIC on the 22nd of this month; prices range from £42.25 to £81.50. Doesn't sound too bad to see my favourite band.
