Arnos Grove

Ok, what can people tell me about Arnos Grove and it's general area?

There seems to be some nice - and well within price range - houses there but I don't really know the area very well.

Anyone?

Skeletal Family

Having just discovered that The Skeletal Family are supporting Christian Death tomorrow night as the pre-Slimes gig I now seem to have Saturday planned with a trip to Angel.

I'll probably/hopefully be on the last train home though as I REALLY don't want to get stuck at the club afterwards. Partially due to a dsilike of the place, partially because I have things to do on Sunday and partially because I'm still not 100% mended from this weeks bug.

So, anyone else going to the gig/Slimes tomorrow?

Dubai British Drug News

I know a number of my friends know Cat Le-Hey (I don't) and have been talking about him and campaigning on their LiveJournals regardng his arreest in Dubai.

Just thought I'd give you a heads up that the BBC are running the story and it's currently their most mailed on their website.

Tourists Warned of UAE Drug Laws (BBC News Online; Friday 8th February 2008)

I can't believe that someone was jailed for four years for having 0.003g of cannabis on the sole of their shoe - that must be a really minute speck! One of the morals of the story is if you are going to go to these places buy a completely new wardrobe at the airport so nothing can stick on you from British streets!

Clannad Tour

Someone mentioned this to me a couple of weeks ago but I've been a bit on the 'not a lot of cash and a move coming up' side of things and not been able to do anything about it. Now, thanks to some rather nice ebay sales, I treated myself to a couple of tickets to see Clannad at the London Palladium on Sunday 9th March :)

This is the first time Clannad have toured in ten years and is 35 years since their first album!

I've been lucky enough to catch them a few times (back in the 80's and 90's - including a few times at the Royal Albert Hall and once in a VIP box courtesy of their record company) and they are superb live.

I can't wait :D
