"What is that ?", I pretend to hear you say.
The humble keyboard's Caps Lock key, that's what.
"But how can that cause such grief ?", you ask.
Well, it is not the key itself (even though, as I have already said, I rarely use it.
However, over the past few weeks, it seems that every time I have gone to a machine in the office and tried to type in our Top Secret password, I have failed to enter the correct details simply because some lazy so-and-so has failed to hit it again to reset it.
It may seem extreme, but the folks who insist on pressing it because they have to type an Upper case letter rather than using the Shift key should be cooked in their own pudding, as I believe Dickens wrote.
I know that I am not the only one who is upset by this, but it looks like Google are trying to force this issue by removing the offending item from their Chrome Book products -

All in all, < a brilliant night >
By the way, Seasick Steve's latest record, "Sonic Soul Surfer" is a stonker. Fabulous.
My "new old" favourite popsters (since 2009 at least), Summer Camp have announced a new record in May. Unfortunately, I cannot get to the celebratory gig in London due to work commitments but they have privately indicated to me that they may well be down in Somerset towards the end of June.
Talking of which, the annual bun fight that is the ticket resale for the Glastonbury Festival reached it's conclusion last Sunday. It was done and dusted in 11 minutes, which says to me that Glastonbury still appeals to the masses. Considering that only 75 acts have been announced thus far (there are 1900 more to be announced), I think that this act of faith in the Eavis Family who put on the festival is incredible.
Even with the two current headliners not exactly tickling my fancy, there is enough "smaller acts" for me to be licking my lips already - Rae Morris, Courtney Barnett, Vaccines, Moody Blues, Motorhead, street-poet Katy Tempest and only yesterday The Unthanks announced they would be opening the Saturday Pyramid Stage proceedings accompanied by a 26 piece orchestra.
His Holiness The Dalai Lama is expected, and I am sure that Billy Bragg will do a turn in his self-curated "Leftfield Tent".
62 days to go...
The Arsenal should be too strong for Aston Villa in the Final in May, but we shall see.
More pressing is the small matter of a home game against Chelsea in the Premiership this Sunday. A must-win game if there is to be any challenge to Champions-elect Chelsea.
In Scouting however, we chose this day (or the Sunday afterwards) to hold a St George's Parade (or event) where promises are renewed.
We shall be running a base at the Reigate District event this Sunday.
Onward, for England and St George...
