Mutterings that Matter!

There was a time when I could pen poetry in minutes

There was a time when I would blog effortlessly

There was a time when I’d change status messages frequently.

Where is that time gone I think. My present has overtaken my past.

 

Ale1

The Wikipedia states an Ale to be Ale is a type of beer brewed from malted barley using a top-fermenting brewers’ yeast. This yeast ferments the beer quickly, giving it a sweet, full bodied and fruity taste. Most ales contain hops, which impart a bitter herbal flavour that helps to balance the sweetness of the malt and preserve the beer.”

My graduation from Lagers to Ales pretty much happened in London a couple of years back and in the company of friends.

So it has pretty much been either a pub crawl (UK for pub hop) or pretty much the confines of a hotel room.

This time was rather pleasant. I was invited by a friend to his hockey club Real Ale Festival. Some offers are difficult to refuse as they say and this one what was one of them obviously. 14 Ales and 3 Ciders – I didn’t try the ciders eventually. Given a choice it’s Ale, Stout, Lagers and Ciders in that order.

So we decided to do a barrel crawl – go from barrel to barrel with the souvenir glass you see in the image. That glass did hold many of those on the list and I’d avoid mentioning how many, because it is not the quantity but quality that matters. Quality of a good time. An Ale of a time…

Thanks Robbie…it was good, not to mention the overground and underground trains back to the hotel in Central London.😉

Also the blokes at the Broxbourne Hockey club for being great hosts.

Aleman!

Mumbai Congress

Some banner designers have a novel way of ensuring their business suffers. Look at the banner of the Congress Party above.

What do you see?

Struggling are you?

Well for one it has a welcome address in all the top 5 languages spoken in the city of Mumbai.
Two, it has the top brass of the Congress across India and in Maharashtra in the photos. Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi & Ashok Chavan amongst others.

So what’s wrong with that you may ask. My question is who are they welcoming – us or one of them.

Dear banner maker – next time please ensure your template design is not reusable for a longer period of time – your business will not grow.

When the Eagles decided to break up Don Henley had said that the group would reunite when hell freezes over.  For MTM obviously it’s not so dramatic it’s probably like Glenn Frey said when they got back together ‘For the record we never broke up, we just took a 14 year vacation’.

MTM is hopefully back from vacation after 8 months to its first post this year. It’s been a ‘should I shouldn’t I’ debate whenever I have opened up WordPress to remove the cobwebs from the blog but really have not given it a really hard look to restart it.

Today is a good day in some form – already has a milestone attached to it from six years ago, and I’m happy to have MTM restarted today.

Thanks to all my friends who have been a support on this blog in the past and especially thanks to that one who threatened to pull MTM of his blogroll. Thanks A.

I like the new look at WordPress and hopefully the Mutterings are back for good.

Cheers!

Oh my great state what has become of thou!
Thy politicians are fighting o’er pohe and pav.

To each it’s the food of the soil
Yet it’s all a clever political foil

Oh my great state what has become of thou!
Thy politicians are fighting o’er pohe and pav.

They beef up their security
While our lives are full of anxiety

Oh my great state what has become of thou!
Thy politicians are fighting o’er pohe and pav.

In all the carnage that happened down south
Thy politicians just put their foot in the mouth

Oh my great state what has become of thou!
Thy politicians are fighting o’er pohe and pav.

When time came for hard decisions
Their parties quickly took away their positions

Oh my great state what has become of thou!
Thy politicians are fighting o’er pohe and pav.

I have new found power in that one vote
Get the change that the world will note

Oh my great state what will become of thou?
Will thy politicians ever stop fighting o’er pohe and pav?

Loved the new look WordPress…will not say much…better get blogging….

Hibernation…

Feels good to be back!
