Sleeping Ghosts

Went to the Jobcentre, there were no jobs. Caught the bus from Cromer to Norwich. An old work colleague got on. She is retired now and had been walking along the coast for the day as part of a ramblers club.

It was raining hard by the time we had reached Norwich bus station, so I headed straight for the Forum for coffee. Inside the forum there was someone else from my past also. A girl who was on the same photography course many years ago. After coffee I walked to the Oriental Arts' centre where I could relax with an orange juice from the bar and read the paper.

According to the Guardian newspaper today, digital exclusion has become such a problem that Gordon Brown has provided a minister to set things straight. The Welsh Secretary, Paul Murphy met for the first time with his 'digital inclusion committee' last week. The percentage of excluded individuals has remained around the one thirds mark.

I had a good Budo lesson and much fun was had. One thing, it seems most of the others at the class also study Iaido. They all own good Japanese swords, which of course can't be obtained or bought within England any longer. Therefore England sucks arse !!!

I'm not sure if it's true but I heard that my Lowestoft Budo Sensei has moved on to a different style..a Russian martial art. So I guess he's no longer there anymore.

lol. The rumour isn't true. The good stuff from Russian "systema" can all be found within Bujinkan as well. Everyone is amazed by systema punching (see Youtube) because the arm is relaxed and the punch is so powerful. That's how real Japanese punching has been for 2000 years!
