Have you ever insulted someone, have you ever picked on someone or some group who cheesed you off so badly that you vented your spleen on them, crushed them with your vitriol, no, neither have I, but be careful because the insult threshold has just been lowered once again. A group of British Cosplayers have taken umbrage at being described as possibly a little barmy dressing up as comic superheroes and have become paid up members of the ranks of victimhood declaring that you should not have an opinion, sorry judgement, on what they do unless you are in complete agreement with them. You don't even need to actually insult anyone either, if someone else deems that what you do or say may constitute an insult to someone, you have had it mate. We have the ridiculous instance of Drag Queens being banned from a Gay Pride march in case Transgender people might find it insulting, no, I can't work it out either.

I think I can now put my holiday illness behind me and declare myself hale and hearty again, I am still not sure about my arm, it is not 100% better by any means and I had to pull out a bit of the stitching the nurse left behind the other day. Needless to say the wall has not been repaired and the deadline has now passed, the firm have at last told me to go ahead and get it fixed and the money will be deducted from the drivers wages, forgive me if I remain sceptical.
On the bright side No.1 son is returning to the UK from Korea and he will be based in Wembley, so he will have a house somewhere in the commuter belt within shooting distance of London, that means about an hour and a bit in a car according to Google, although I have an idea real life traffic will lengthen that. This should allow me attend several wargame related shows and tournaments during the coming years, result.
I was given a crate of differing ciders recently and had one left so I cooked a chicken dish from the Legatus's food and drink blog, it was superb, I would thoroughly recommend this simple but delicious dish if you enjoy cooking, go on spoil yourself and amaze the girlfriend/missus.
