Or cycling tips from a mental health forum?

The Grauniad has another typically unsurprising report: many MPs have mental health problems, unastonishing: many would be unwilling to discuss mental health problems with whips!

You were doing all right 'til No. 3. Many books said to be good by goodbook judges turn out to be tedious drones. I was once recommended to read "The Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged" by that Aynal Randy person. Gaw, they're tedious (and very silly indeed).

Then you got to No. 9 - a good recommendation or not, depending on who is included or excluded from "others". I feel it will be maddening to put the needs of Trumpet or BoJoklown before my own (and everyone else's, which would be part of the "deal" with them gharks. Yes).

No. 10 wouldn't be so bad if only you'd said "Bob Dylan but only Blood on The Tracks".

Cugel, also a bit wary of Kipling reads, which are often the literary equivalent of Kipling "cakes". Sweet & sickly & tasting queer, like Olde English Spangles past their sell-by date.

Well, not The Tea Shop, obviously. All cyclists of the webby lanes and alleys need their notion-cake and a tisane of invigorating meme-herb. The lack of these things, when interwebbing, only leads to mind-bonk, sometimes evident in one or two poster arriving here after doing the Conspiracy Sportive or even The Race to The Bottom.

Do I have supernatural powers of foresight? Soon I am going to a concert of music by Elgar, and Sibelius, and Beethoven (plus a minor Bach) :wink:

I like doing things in different sequences, quite daring today, doing my shopping early Saturday, didnae manage it in the week
A bit less routine/different routine is good for MH I think

"Avoid anyone that believes in surveillance of the population. "

I have also stopped reading newspapers ... for over 20 years I read the Telegraph and the Grauniad every morning, now i don't.
I genuinely feel better.
