    “Southend United Under the Shadow of War” is my next book which should be published this coming November.

    1,000th Post & Little Havens

    Thought I would commemorate my 1,000th post by letting you know that we at Friends of Katie have now raised just over £23,100 for Little Havens. As you know this is in no small part to the generosity of SZ Zoners and we will always be grateful for all that you did. Little Havens have told us...

    I know about you...

    Yesterday I went through my old posts to see which ones got the highest rep. Based on that information I have compiled a psychological profile of you. You are unusually curious about how things work. You value function over form. You like solving problems, even if they are not your own...

    Zone Update Oldham Fun Day

    As most of you are aware the preferred theme for our last Away Day of the season at Oldham is Beach Party - dress optional....well, sort of, if you want to be minimalist then the choice is yours, wouldn't advise taking the nudist approach though – it ain’t Brighton! Bring your own inflatables...

    Little Haven, Barry Harris and Miss HB

    Just a quick note from myself and Katie's Mum to thank Barry for his generosity in donating a large sum to Little Haven in Katie's memory following his completion of the Great North Run.

    How to be an idiot, Vange Shrimper style...

    Went into the 99p store today (have to say that place is a god-send for people on a budget like me) and when I got to the checkout, and after she had put my stuff through, I realised I didnt have enough cash on me. I said i'd pay on my card, but the woman on the till said it was a 'cash only'...

    Matt the Shrimp in "running" shock...

    Folks, As anyone who has had the (dubious) pleasure of meeting me will be able to testify, mine is a body that was built for comfort rather than speed. However, I'm about to put that presumption to the test on Thursday week by undertaking a 5km run for charity - in this case, for Breakthrough...
