We went to see Nick (my brother) in Andover and had a nice lunch out in nearby historic Stockbridge - a smallish place that has so many places to eat, it was a big reminder of how much choice we enjoy these days.

Even out in the countryside these days we are able to lead quite a cosmopolitan life.
I don't know how the economy of the towns and cities around London (60 miles or so) keeps afloat but there does seem to be quite a bit of money in circulation and in many ways those out there are able to have a better quality of life - having said that the people who live out there as opposed to folks in the big cities do need a car to be able to participate in what's on offer out there.
A cracking DVD
We watched the Vivian Mayer documentary (finding Vivian ..) at the weekend, it perhaps unsurprisingly was incredibly sad but also a great mystery film and a chance to see glimpses of an America that's long gone.
