June Misc: Andrey leaves work, Phil falls asleep and some Scenes from Diss - 4th, 5th June 2004

Andrey leaves Trigenix and trades Cambridge for Oxford, so a deputation wanders down to the Green Dragon pub on the banks of the Cam to see him off. Later that night, after a few hours in the pub, Nosher and Phil go round Marc and Sue's to watch DVDs till the small hours. The next day, Nosher wanders into Diss to see once more a re-enactment of some stuff from "The Skelton Years" (1460 - 1529, at one point during which John Skelton - former tutor to Henry VIII was a rector of Diss).

Phil's asleep (and thus defenceless): time for some 'fun with props'

When Bagpuss falls asleep, all his friends fall asleep...

Perhaps this is getting a little bit too bizarre...

I'm often struck by the contrast between a 400-year-old church and the chip van
