Please see my main blog is now at http://tootechy.blogspot.com with the majority of posts coming through http://rujmah.posterous.com
Whilst I usually kill off old blogs pretty mercilessly I'm keeping this one alive for posterity - or until I decide that it really is too old to bother with.
Any comments please email 'blogs_at_rjjm.net' (replacing the '_at_' with an @).
Thanks for reading!

- Write at least 3 songs for my wife.
- Get lessons for one of the following: Drums, Bass, Guitar, Piano, Banjo, Trumpet.
- Start music lessons for the kids.
- Figure out how to record music to the PC/laptop (you'd think I'd know!).
- Record an album (dependant on 4).
Probably think of some more....

Here is a video of Maggie Stokes-Rees - a cutie if ever there was one. Ian and Em (her parents) have just moved to Boston, Massatoosis.. Maasssatutis... in the USA and this was our last night with Ian and Maggie before they left. I was so amazed that she was talking I had to video it quick. Here's the result.
We've just heard that Ian and Em have now found a place to live that sounds great. We are praying for great blessing with this move - and intend to visit as soon as we get the chance.

Still, you didn't have to go far to experience the effects of the flooding. Eynsham was hit and the A40 had fish swimming over it at one point. Oxford is still waiting to find out it the water is going to be receding any time soon - or if it's going to be going further up.
I am still able to work from home (yar-boo!), but I am not sure when I will be able to drive in. Gloucester is still hit pretty badly as far as I can tell.
One difficulty is finding out how the floods are effecting routes. I know all about the surrounding area as the local radio has been brilliant and I can view the national situation. But I'm having trouble finding out if the route I use via Cheltenham and Gloucester is passable.
I am amazed at the commitment and effort put in by the emergency services and other service organizations. Including the councils, the hospitals, the road recovery agencies. Everyone who can be doing something is doing it.
It's a shame that there are still so many selfish idiots out there moving closed road signs and endangering live wherever they can.
Still it looks as though the majority of the populus are helping rather than hindering.
Will be interesting to see if this calms the housing market a little.
