Old Favourites and Frequent Topics

This blog doesn't have a specific topic, I write about whatever comes to mind and what I feel like writing about. Nevertheless there are some frequent topics and a few entries I particularly like. To make it easier to find them I've collated them on this page, grouped by topic (in order of appearance):

  1. Living, voting and blogging abroad
  2. The TV Licensing Saga
  3. Islay, Jura, Gigha and Colonsay
  4. Swindon and Wiltshire
  5. Scots
  6. Charles Rennie Mackintosh
  7. Webwriting, hotlinking and all that
  8. Old Favourites

Living, voting and blogging abroad

My passport and birth certificate are German, but I live and work in England. And blog from England in English. Not to forget maintain the Blogging Abroad/ Expat Bloggers page

The TV Licensing Saga

I don't have a television. Haven't had one since early 1998. That doesn't stop TV Licensing sending me threatening letters though. Follow the whole sorry saga here (in old blog tradition the latest entry on top):

Islay, Jura, Gigha and Colonsay

Regular holiday destination. And blog topic. In particular Islay but also its nearest neighbours.

Swindon and Wiltshire

Swindon is where I live. Mainly because my job is here. So I sometimes blog about it.


No, not the people, the language. And my feeble attempts to learn it.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh

I have written a few pages about Charles Rennie Mackintosh, so it's no surprise that I also sometimes blog about him.

Webwriting, hotlinking and all that

Writing webpages, what motivates me doing it, what's annoying about it and anything else related to this topic.

Old Favourites

A few entries I particularly like or think are significant, but didn't fit under any of the groups above.
