Hi David,
I like 'The Plan'..

'Children of Men'.. An allegorical sci-fi thriller. I like P.D. James' detective stories with Adam Dalgleish and Cordelia Gray so maybe that's why I found the book a bit disappointing though the movie with Clive Owen and Michael Caine is probably better.

' Tidy up study'.. Dont tidy it too much or you may not find things as easily as you would in an organized mess.

'Go for a walk'.. one can think, plan pray and talk to God while walking and its good for health as well.

'Shop for swarm of locusts'.. Maybe we could call for Moses and Aaron and their staff to drive them into the sea.

'Blairdrummond Safari Park'.. I can just imagine the GadjetVicar Family walking about the park with Bagheera walking with you at your side and all of you listening to Baloo singing 'The Bare Necessities' and then marching with Colonel Hathi and his troops to 'Colonel Hathi's March' before joining King Louie and Baloo sing 'I Wan'na Be Like You'. I think Disney's 'Jungle Book' is such a wonderfully immortal classic because the animals are so humanlike and remind us of people we may know and but like humans not all the animals are friendly. Watch out for Shere Khan and Kaa especially if you hear a villain or villainess (why should villains always be men?) sing in that softly hypnotic voice 'Trust in me'.

'Finish reading a book'.. which book?

'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy'.. Its one best books I've liked by John Le Carre. I haven't seen the DVD but I think Sir Alec Guinness as George Smiley will be brilliant.

Hope 'The Plan' works to perfection and the GadjetVicar Family enjoy the 'days off'!!

God's blessings,

A Tait

You will enjoy Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. I watched the repeat of the series recently on BBC4 and the late Alec Guiness is indeed superb as George Smiley. Iain Bannan, who grew up in Coatbridge, is also outstanding as Jim Prideaux. I don't know if you are a reader of John Le carre's books but what made them all a bit more interesting was the revelation a few years ago that the author had himself been an officer of the intelligence services during the cold war and was named to the Soviets as such by the traitor Kim Philby. Enjoy!
