I was just tidying up the computer when I stumbled upon this old picture of one of my bookshelves. Not even sure why I took it but it probably dates from at least 7 or 8 years ago. The amazing thing is how much I've crammed onto an apparently full bookshelf in the intervening years. I hesitate to take another picture because light may not be able to escape its gravitational field...so we can't play whose bookshelf is this because you know it is mine; but can anyone accurately guess another book or object that is now on this bookshelf circa 2011? Too difficult?

I'm afraid I've been teasing you. My 'attic' is really the Montacute Museum of TV, Radio and Toys in Somerset. But, of course, if you are ever in Somerset you can look round it, while my attic is not open to the public. However, it is strange to walk around a museum where all of my most prized possessions are just a sub-set of the exhibits on display.

One interesting thing about having this blog is that you can see the searches that people are doing that lead them here. I'd just like to apologise to the person who was looking for information about Quint's House in Jaws who was randomly brought here by their search engine. That is weird. There's no information about Jaws on this blog. But maybe there should be...I shall remedy that at some point!

Certainly got my attic looking pretty organised at the moment...do you like it? Or do I? Who thinks this is really my attic? Have any of you been in my attic to know? Or is this just another thinly disguised game of "Where the Heck is this?"

OK, we haven't had a Stranger than People illustration for a while so here goes...here the legendary annual expounds the theory that trolls are a racial memory of neanderthals. As usual, the authors seem a little ahead of their time. And talking of Neanderthals, I was at Creswell Crags in Nottinghamshire last week looking at caves where Neanderthals actually resided once. I'll post some pics of that when I get chance, if only to show that the place looks rather like a caveman movie film set.
