The girl with the violin

Happy Birthday

Grumpy old fart!!!

I saw this card after reading Ian McEwan, On Chesil Beachand was reminded of the final page;

“When he thought of her, it rather amazed him, that he had let that girl with her violin go.

Now, of course, he saw that her self-effacing proposal was quite irrelevant.

All she had needed was the certainty of his love, and his reassurance that there was no hurry when a lifetime lay ahead of them.

Love and patience- if only he had had them both at once- would surely have seen them both through.”

Valentine’s day

 

“All of us are lonely at some point or another, no matter how any people surround us.

And then, we meet someone who seems to understand.

She smiles, and for a moment the loneliness disappears.”

Helene Wecker, The Golem and the Jinni

Pendennis Castle Road Races

Pendennis Castle Road Races

On the west side of the hill on which Pendennis Castle stands, alongside the coast road is a plaque commemorating the Pendennis Castle Road Races. The plaque was put in position in 2002 by the Pendennis Motorcycle and Light Car Club. These races were the first motorcycle races to be run on public roads in Britain and used a 1.5 miles circuit around Castle Drive. The races were held from 1931 until 1937 and a lap record was achieved by G.E.Rowley of Sidcup on a 346 AJS in 1 minute 44 seconds.
