    ...chatting to Beryl in the staff canteen is nearly always insightful, Beryl is a creature of habit and has this habit of producing the best bacon butties I have tasted, she rightly has a dedicated following, her latest delicacy, rhubarb crumble and custard, has gone down a storm here at the cyber station as well, it's quite delicious. Beryl was discussing her spring cleaning regime, apparently she has a lot of stuff to get rid of, "haven't we all"; I said - but she was determined to get rid of it and decided to dedicate the bank holiday weekend to it. "How did it go", I asked. "Well, I got all those boxes out of the loft and stacked them in the garage, I bought a new bigger box to sort out the stuff I wanted to keep, "It's surprising" she said; I haven't been through those old boxes in ages some of it goes back years, so much stuff.""It took the whole weekend" she said, "I went through each box and sorted out what I just had to hold onto and put it in the new box for safekeeping, the rest was going in the bin""How did it go", I asked. "Well, I managed to get rid of a worn out old teddy bear, a battered book on philosophy and have asked my daughter if she wants to take a couple of her silver christening spoons I found, she's thinking about it but isn't sure, you know its the sentimental value and all that""Oh well", she said, "I can always have another go next year." She grinned at me and said, "And how did you little exercise go" - I said "the lads have voted and the Bacon Buttie edges it over the rhubarb crumble and custard", "You don't want both then" she said; "Your spoiling us Beryl" I said...

    evening all … mr jojo sir, the “Criminal Psychology and Forensic Science dept”, or boffins as we like to call them have provided the following report on the “Alice in wonderland” incident. This is what they say;250px-Tobeasomebody.jpgThe jojo’s journey weblog was (it has been taken down in the last 24 hrs) a biographical dialogue between jojo and his need for attention, his quest to find an audience as well as an outlet for his frustrations, the weblog ran for two years concluding a few months ago. The diary provided telling insights into jojo’s character, state of mind and his random quest for some purpose, indeed, jojo’s journey is about the need to find something (anything) that might provide a platform, recognition, success and income. Lenkiewicz is just one of many things tried over the two year period after jojo was fired, until then he had shown no interest in Lenkiewicz and used the ”jojo’s journey” platform to push;(1) Gratuitous details of an ongoing battle with cancer (we presume)(2) Gratuitous details of surgery and physical complications.(3) An attempt and failure to break into local politics.(4) An attempt to launch and the subsequent failure of many random projects eg

    Quote from jojo's weblog: "I was going to write about my ability to piss people off but I think that is too negative. Anybody who finds fault with me is simply suffering from some form of deep emotional problem that they are projecting onto their relationship with me. I am all right it is the rest of the world that has the problem! ..."[img]http://bp3.blogger.com/_8rk6msKiSnc/R5fRZ5wDrkI/AAAAAAAAASg/XBd4sWpLfNE/s400/PB260003.JPG[/img] Quote from jojo's weblog: "Well actually, if I'm honest, I couldn't give a rat's arse what you think of me! I'd like to think my words engaged you on some level and that I brought a smile to your face but If I didn't I don't really care. My motifs have been purely selfish. My scribblings, an out pouring of thoughts and reported history to anyone bored enough to listen....."You are accused mr jojo sir of being a self serving, publicity seeking idiot ... by your own words.We at the cyber station have some sympathy with your struggle against a difficult medical condition, realisation of mortality and absurd quest for some sort of fame but TLF need another loose cannon on deck like Gordon Brown a by-election ....

    Lets face it, it’s really insulting when someone as narrow as Hughes is indulged in this way, but then that’s the Guardian for you; presenting socially acceptable, dumbed down images to a gullible audience under a banner like “complex emblems of modernity”. All this based on a con man like Robert Rauschenberg no less, purveyor of collages, fashionably rebranded as Assemblage Art or Arte Povera to the ingénue. Hughes: "One looks at it remembering that the goat is an archetypal symbol of lust, so Monogram is the most powerful image of anal intercourse ever to emerge from the rank psychological depths of modern art. Yet it is innocent, too, and sweet, and (with its cascading ringlets) weirdly dandified: a hippy goat, a few years before the 1960s. Fifty years after its creation, it remains one of the great, complex emblems of modernity, as unforgettable (in its way) as the flank of Cézanne's mountain, the cubist kitchen table or the wailing woman in Guernica." rob256.jpg How easy and unchallenging it must be to stand in front of “Monogram”, loving those dandified ringlets, wallowing in ambiguity, believing a pastiche is modern and waiting for a prat like Hughes to provide an explanation as to why its such a deep and complex object. Lets hope TLF trustees don’t buy into this sort of crap, Lenkiewicz' goat is challenging; it stands on the shoulders of history in a field called integrity. Hughes: "Monogram is the most powerful image of anal intercourse ever to emerge from the rank psychological depths of modern art." Yeah, what about these then Mr Hughes... pan.jpg 16ROL_N220S.preview.jpg

    evening all,as I thought, non of you muppets attended the private showing, pre show or sale day by the looks of it – so it’s a good job I felt it prudent to deploy the Sweeney in full during the weekend, we pulled the ‘snouts’, roughed up some ‘narks’ and are still compiling eye witness accounts of the crime. It’s clear at this stage that a number of leading gangs, factions and dealers were in operation during the 12th.250px-John_Thaw_as_Jack_Regan.jpgThe first reports to hit the incident room came in at 09:20 from Insp.Jack and Sgt.George of the flying squad. Leading members of the “Tifosi Lenkiewizie Fondazione” were spotted in a group huddle just inside the main entrance, their newest recruit, the enforcer only known by his code name “Mr.Mallett” was seen in conversation with the two broads thought to be the leading members of “Tifosi” – Jack said we should rush them on sight, he was concerned that one of the broads was packing an arsenal under her jumper – I said no way, “she’s packing a bun not a gun”. But, then the atmosphere changed as the “Somerville Gang” heads entered the arena, as expected disguised as pikeys the leaders “Mr Big” and “Mini Me” exchanged cool, respectful greetings with the “Tifosi” heads before taking up station “Mini Me” left of centre at the rear while “Mr Big” paced both flanks forming group discussions with various members of a loose coalition known by us as the “Guy Richie Extras” – (more reports on this later); Tension levels were elevated around 09:43 as the recently ousted member of the “Tifosi” and newly formed splinter faction “the Hill-Smith gang” arrived on mass, noted: no eye contact with the “Tifosi” heads as they staked out two rows to the right and rear of the arena – George spotted them first and in time honoured fashion gets to provide the code name for the new gang, so the “Hill-Billies” are now on record. Meanwhile, at the front of the building an officer called in the arrival of the “Asian Colleague” a known acquaintance of “Mr Big” and code named “Triad” – always impeccably turned out, suit top, close cut jeans, brand labels on show, expensive looking watch (fake) a stark contrast from the gipsy, scrap metal dealer garb adopted by the “Somerville Gang”.“Triad” entered from the front, briefly lingered by the bookstall operated by the “Tifosi” enforcers, before moving into the arena proper at 09:50. We considered the possibility that the bookstall was a front for information distribution; one officer moved in to investigate but discovered the stall contained nothing of significance. Back in the arena George called on his radio “spotted Wallace and Gromit” aka Mr.Walmsley and Mrs.Walmsley, the lads on the fraud desk gave them that code name, apparently she has the brains, and now a new hair do, teeth and a frock to match.At 10:01 the crime scene was cased from our observation point behind the auctioneer, looking out at the audience; the layout was as follows;“Wallace and Gromit” were to the left behind the Internet and telephone operators in a roped off section (for their own safety).“Tifosi” enforcer “Mr.Mallett” to the right, slightly back from the crowd behind the standing display – close to the front.“Tifosi” broads were placed on the left outer edge about ten rows back.“Mr Big” right flank mid way.“Mini Me” to the right, very back row.The “Hill-Billies” took two rows at the rear on the left side.“Triad” alternated left or right flank normally operating from mid way.And then the action started and may the force be with you all …

    Gold is a refuge and bubble. Commercial property is heading south, lets remind ouselves of the facts. the print market has collapsed, the market for sketches and drawings will be diluted to nothing after this sale - let alone the crowd who thought spending 300 on pallets was an investment in 2004. The 2004 sale was trailed in the press for months before; claiming 80% of the remaining estate was going into the 2004 sale. The sale next week is Larger than westpoint 2004. I think people have a right to be pissed off at overpaying last time round, they were lead to believe that 2004 was the last chance to buy. Look at the bare faced lies from Boyce Hatton and Bearnes then! Who is taking this set of announcements any more seriously? Are there already rumours for wesptpoint 2011? It might contain as much if not more than westpoint 2008.Remebering westpoint 2004 ...[hr]Friday, 30 July 2004 peh_front_page.gifA massive £1 million sell-off of Robert Lenkiewicz paintings and memorabilia is being planned for October, the Herald can reveal.Some 80 per cent of the late artist's remaining estate will be auctioned in Exeter in a desperate attempt to clear £2 million worth of debts and costs left by Mr Lenkiewicz.The October sale will be the biggest ever auction of Lenkiewicz artwork and effects since he died in August 2002. A fifth of Mr Lenkiewicz's original collection of paintings and other works has already been auctioned off, and a small part of his massive book collection has also been sold.Mr Walmsley said: "We are hoping this sale will raise £1 million but the more we can raise now, the less we will need to raise in future."If all the lots are sold, only around 150 of the artist's most treasured works will be left for the foundation to keep - just 20 per cent of Mr Lenkiewicz's original estate.Executor Peter Walmsley said: "Robert never expected everything to be kept but this auction is still something we are all very reluctant to do. We have, however, no choice because the creditors' claims must be settled."Details and a catalogue will be released in August.[hr]Friday, 22 October 2004 eveningheraldlogo.gifHundreds of people were today expected to flock to a second viewing of items once owned by painter Robert Lenkiewicz. Tomorrow more than 600 lots will be going under the hammer at the biggest sale of its kind at Westpoint Exhibition Centre in Exeter. More than 1,000 people were at the first viewing yesterday and auctioneers expect a massive turnout ...Daniel Goddard of auctioneers Bearne's said: "Yesterday's viewing attracted a constant stream of people. We expect the sale to be very busy."The sale of about 80 per cent of the painter's remaining estate ... I think th majority of paintings are likely to be significantly reduced in value after this sale ... Quite devastating.

    There is an economic shit storm heading through this country. It's good news that the price of pasties are holding up in the westcountry though. But all sectors, commodities, fuel and interest rates are out of control – Inflation trending up, denying the BOE any room for IR relief.Interesting article you posted. Here are the two readers comments posted against it, real people with real exposure;Prices are falling massively here. These land registry figures are months behind due to the way they are collated and don't reflect the large falls which are happening now. It is looking like a 20% fall this year alone. Gavin, Exmouth Anyone who thinks the current trend of prices continually rising will be in for a very large shock (has all the hallmarks of bust and boom politics). The usually infallible Buy to Let squad will also be in a lot of trouble too. Sub prime lenders are beginning to go down the pan and reeling in the amounts they are willing to lend. Bring on the crash and let the generation of enforced nomads revel in the outcome of the Buy to Let's greed. I predict a lot of Buy to Let landlords with negative equity....poetic justice just around the corner!! Johnny no pants, Exeter I Don't expect to see Gavin and Johnny no pants at westpoint, do you?
