“I

Well it’s the last weekend of the summer (probably) and rubbish weather starts here again. i’m hoping I can persuade someone to squeeze one last barbeque in before the cold season starts again and I have to go into hibernation in my cave.

It’s also time to say goodbye to Falkirks finest indie duo Arab Strap (www.arabstrap.co.uk), who have announced their split after ten years. They were most famous for doing the soundtrack for that guinness advert with the hot air baloon in the shape of a cow (does anyone other than me remember that?). They were also famous for being very, very miserable. Appropriately enough their greatest hits is called "ten years of tears". They won’t be hibernating in my cave though, unless they want to.

However much as though I dislike autumn, it is my favourite season for seeing interestingly shaped clouds.
