Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
I've been checking my blood pressure (bp). I own one of those little machines you can have at home which claims to measure bp and pulse rate, and I chanced to find it again recently. I've got a set of scales in the basement so I think I can measure my weight fairly accurately and I have a vague recollection of my height from years ago (though I am at a time of my life when I might be shrinking). What a splendid chance to combine two interests (hypochondria and computers) and create a graph…Continue

I've spent a good part of the last three weeks competing in or travelling to or being present athletics at events designated with the title "World". I'm reasonably content with my results, except for the bits I'm not happy with. And this note is reflecting on the not quite so good bits, . . . . . And I have an opinion, about how much Heathside should help me, its other multi-eventers and athletes in general for the good of the SAL team.
It has taken me almost 10 years to…Continue

I've had two very good weeks of interesting all-round athletics overseas. Spoiler alert - this report is very self centred and self congratulatory. Read on at your own peril.
On the weekend of the 25/26th August I went to Delft for the World Icosathlon Championships. Lots of reasons for doing this - on 24th August I was the world champion and world record holder, but the chances were that by 27th I would no longer be either. One reason for going was to wave goodbye to my titles in…Continue

The centenary of some women gaining the right to vote has recently been celebrated, and local events involving the suffragettes maybe of interest.
On 7 June 1913, the Pavilion at North Middlesex Cricket Club in Park Road was almost completely destroyed by fire. Responsibility for the blaze was claimed by The Women's Social and Political Union (The WSPU) whose members were better known as The Suffragettes, in their newspaper "The Suffragette.” But why would …Continue

This is a great achievement by two local cricketers, and a local cricket club. Huge congratulations, and the best of luck to Luke and Ethan!…Continue
Haringey are stealthy increasing the amount it will cost to park in the 'Stop and Shop' zones - normally to increase parking charges there would have to be various procedures to follow - not this time. Up until now people wishing to park could buy the appropriate amount of parking time from a machine - the cost of maintaining these machines being borne by Haringey. Fearing the cost of converting the machines to accept the new £1 coins Haringey has a wonderful wheeze - remove the machines…Continue
This evening on the way past the Central Library I noticed that a sign had been placed on one of the three very large trees outside the main body of the building explaining that it was to be removed because it was continuing to cause damage to the pavement and other solutions had proved useless. How sad I thought, still these things happen, and then I looked at my feet on the pavement and noticed that it was not damaged to any great extent at all. However there were three 'tree…Continue
I don't often write about politics on my blog, which may be a bit odd since I studied Political Science at the Hanken School of Economics in Helsinki. I don't do this because I think if I began, I'd never write about anything else ..!
But with Trump signing a ban on certain citizens from entering the United States, together with the Brexit vote here in the UK, I am so frightened that I have to say something about it all publicly.
So today I'm making an exception…Continue
