Blogger’s block!

with 10 comments

An open thread

For the first time in a number of years I am suffering from the dreaded “Blogger’s block”, a sustained period where I cannot find the inspiration to write, the mercury fails to rise, or there is no anger and indignation with the the world, so for now my verbosity is curtailed. Despite the continuing outpouring of revelations from News International where the focus is now more acutely on Murdoch and Brooks, and despite the promise of more jobs from BT South Tyneside, I cannot  yet feel that necessary burning desire to comment, perhaps it will all return to me in a few days or less.

In the meanwhile here’s a picture taken last weekend during the Mouth of the Tyne Festival in South Shields, perhaps you might like to suggest a caption for it, better still you can use this post as an open thread to discuss what you wish, if it has great relevance to South Tyneside or South Shields all the better.
