Red Socks

Posted by Martin on May 2, 2007

Len has begged me to put this on the site, and promises to push the cricket agenda in the United States and convert all his friends to West Ham United supporters if I do…

So here goes: Go the Red Socks. Whatever that means.

[cricket/soccer] Ball’s in your court Len.

Thanks to the blogrollers

Posted by Martin on December 14, 2006

Just wanted to extend a hearty thanks to the range of people who have for some reason deemed me blogroll-worthy. It’s very kind of you to have linked to the site – I do really appreciate it. In the last couple of days I’ve noted a link on the pages of Shannon Cobb, Random Girl From Space, and the Au Pair Drama Queen (!). Thanks guys! Even though I don’t know you, I count you as virtual family.

1,000 posts!

Posted by Martin on November 27, 2006

Not here, of course – that would be ridiculous. But at the home of my UK youth ministry ‘brother from another mother’, Ian at Youthblog. Thanks to his post, which is one of his regular all-seeing round-ups of the scene in this country – plus a bit of added weirdness, I’ve discovered that this blog is worth $1,693. Not on a patch on Ian’s $38,000, but it’s a start. Maybe when I’ve written 1,000 posts…
