CAN’T say what’s cool in London today but we had cool things back in my day. Srsly cool.
Today we have our gadgets, the Internetto and stuff that only looks cool, but we had actual cool places to go to and cool things to actually do.

SOMEONE once told me:—
“When you’re in anger, you should sit down and start writing something. That usually calms a person down.”
I don’t think so.

LET’S go into the Time Tunnel for a bit today.
At the Temple of Apollo (actually northwest London), we replied in our good old English tongue merely to convince ourselves that none of us could understand each other; but I noticed that when I smiled slightly on concluding, others did likewise. This fact, and the similar occurrences of our lives, made us unable to resist the temptation to leave. The crisp, freshly polluted air of the town air outside the cave acted as an immediate tonic, and I felt a new life and new courage coursing through me.
