spam..., bike maintenance, spud planting, maris peer, champagne rhubarb disaster, unconscious memory, rita ricketts' scholars, poets and radicals

After the spam email got onto jtns earlier and was speedily deleted thanks to an alert from @rupertbu on Twitter, I changed the tyres and brakes on the bike and replaced the back inner tube. There's been a slow puncture for some weeks and the back tyre was nearly bald. Good that it's all sorted now.

This afternoon, it was spud planting - the dibber's annual outing (for previous years, see post of Friday 18th April 2014 and links). Desiree and Kestrel - old favourites - plus Maris Peer (one that J likes). Also planted some champagne rhubarb. After last year's disaster - I think I planted the crowns upside down... It's so difficult to tell! Hope I've got it right this time. Then I put in some onions (Karmen and Sturon) and some shallots (Picaso and Vigamor).

Two events I'm looking forward to next week are the fourth Unconscious Memory Network seminar, entitled Neuroscience and Psychoanalysis, and a launch for my friend Rita Ricketts' book on the Blackwell collections, Scholars, Poets and Radicals.
