Wait And See!


Very late night yesterday.   Jamie came to London with his friend Jo, and we all stayed up talking until the early hours.  There was food available, and a few bottles of wine. Della was here as well, but you can’t see her as she was the one that took the photograph!  (Sorry ‘Seaniekins’, but no doubt you will still keep trying: whoops, lets just wait for the next wild guesses!).

 In fact, just a quiet family evening, very relaxed.  Personally, I needed it after all the frenetic activity of late.  What with deadlines to meet; film scripts to study, and a host of other things, it made a pleasant change.  Just a quiet evening, and believe me, we all needed a bit of a rest!  Well, we had one!  So sorry to disappoint any of my ‘critics’ (in reality, only two of them!)  who are quick to proffer accusations of ‘drunkenness’, while admitting to consuming a whole bottle of wine solo at Hallowe’en!  (The mind truly boggles!).
 Jamie and Jo left earlier today as they still had a 2-hour drive or so to get back to where they lived.  I have to admit though, that Della and myself didn’t make it back to the ‘land of the living’ until around 4.30 this afternoon, and it was almost dark no less!  It was certainly a bit late to send a few proposed letters, but, ah well, always another day for that.
 On a another matter: Della and I have received several emails from people asking why Della has changed her Internet name to Della Farrant.  Well, there are just some questions that we are just not obliged to answer (sorry, don’t mean that to sound in any way rude),  but you’ll just have to wait and see about that!  When we’re ready we will announce the truth about that.  Its really not that we don’t want to share it with most of you who are genuine people;  but, as I said, I have one or two obsessive critics who would only pervert such personal information to their own personal advantage.  So sorry, you will just have to wait and see.  I will tell you when we are ready!
 And that’s just about it!
 Quiet night in tonight – though I expect I will still be up long after many of you have gone to bed!  For now,

Sax And Insensibility

Well, as I said in my last Blog, Della and myself have been kept pretty busy lately. I’ve already mentioned the recent radio broadcast, and I think given you updates on the new book – I am talking the second volume of my personal autobiography, and I think that I had 2 more Talks lined up to discuss this (as it covers an important period of my life) and to answer questions from any interested parties in person. I will be getting a small fee, but this is really only a formality. I really mean this, I am not interested in a few pounds (although this does help to cover out of pocket expenses) but only concerned with setting the record straight. Apparently, many other people are also interested in this, and hence the reason for the invitations, as well as the chance to meet yet more new people.
I believe I have mentioned Trish here, and she is also another person who seems dedicated to finding out the truth behind the Highgate ‘vampire’ legend. She has been a great help to Della and myself. This interest is especially prevalent in Asia; so much so that during her studies in Thailand she made contact with a couple of other authors with an interest in the esoteric who said they would be very interested if she could complete her book giving ‘inside facts’ into the subject – as they put it. She’s in London at the moment but having some problems with a rather meagre job. Usual situation; rent has to be paid, money needed for food and living, and all things like that. Hopefully the situation does not appear so bad as it was a couple of weeks ago and her job has now been secured without her needing to leave the country for Christmas and thus avoiding any problems with her visa.
Anyway she’s much happier with the situation as she explained last night when she turned up for dinner with her boyfriend Tony. Now, we’d already told her there was no need to bring food as Della was cooking a special meal – which she in fact did! But they both turned up with a huge Chinese takeaway apparently at the insistence of Tony who had not understood the eating arrangements. So we ate that instead! And had a few glasses of wine. No real problem as Della’s meal can easily be reheated tonight and I’m sure it will not have lost any of its succulent flavours. Trish was also very pleased because I had managed to secure a scanner for her which would save her the trouble of having to use my own all the time. They left around 1am, after we’d called them a taxi. Buses had stopped and in any event I wouldn’t have trusted Tony’s ability to get her home safely. He’s a nice guy. But I just think he had one or two glasses too many of wine (Sorry Tony but you’re still welcome again as long as you don’t break anything next time!).
That’s it really, except the latest news is that the second edition of the Comic Book is now completely finished and has already started to go into circulation. I think you’ll love it! I can’t give too many details yet before it hits the main suppliers, but can give you a ‘taster page’ to give you the rough idea! (and as usual I’ll probably get into trouble for doing that!)  As well as that we’ve been working on another film for Christmas, and links will be provided to that here in good time. By the way, auditions for that are still being held, so if anybody is interested in a part please just let us know!
So, I ‘love you and leave you all’ for the time being, and next Blog in a day or so.
For now everyone,

Get the ear-plugs somebody!


Such A Busy Hallowe’en…!

Well, hope some of you managed to listen to the Micah Hanks Graylien Report broadcast last night, the link to which I enclosed in my last Blog. I’m happy to say that this has had a good response, and Micah will soon be sending me a link to a condensed archive of my part in it for any of you interested in my involvement.
Such a busy Hallowe’en, really! SO MUCH has happened, you would hardly believe me if I told you. Well, I’ll just keep you all guessing at this stage, but keep watching this space and it might enlighten a few of my fans about my personal relationships with the opposite sex; although having said that, that is really none of anybody’s business! But as this Blog is more or less a personalised diary, I think I would be ‘cheating my ardent followers’ if I left this out. By the way, thanks for your observations today Rose, but at the moment I still have to say … “No comment!” But all will be revealed shortly.
In the meantime, here is a little picture of some of a calmer moment from yesterday’s events. It was just to seal an earlier ‘activity’ that had taken place a few weeks before…but I’m still not going to tell you at the moment!
Enjoy anyway, and no, Hoggy, don’t even bother. You will never find out anything unless or until I choose to let people know!

It’s All Good News…

"This looks like Della's dressing gown?!?"
Sorry to be late again, but here is the link to last night’s release of the much anticipated  “Hoggy Hallowe’en” film. Its already gone onto Youtube, and sorry for any delay in getting it up here.
Literally been so busy with other matters that I’ve hardly had time to attend to some technicalities. But just watch and enjoy it all the same, you might find it very amusing!
On another note, I gave a short interview this morning to Micah Hanks who runs the Gralien Report website and broadcasting channel, so hope you might be able to enjoy this as well. It is being aired 11.15pm US time / 3.15am UK time, and the link is here: where you will also be able to find it in the archive. Again, sorry for letting you all know about this so late in the day. I agreed to do a Hallowe’en special, but Hallowe’en this year has been a little frenetic to say the least (although I’m not complaining!).
Must confess to being a little tired right now due to a considerably intense day, but hope you will enjoy the Hoggy clip and my broadcast, and I shall fill you in on today’s events when I have a little more time.  But don’t worry folks, it’s all good news!
Yours for the moment,
