​Do you think either of these people had their hair done at the supermarket?

​Behind the scenes at a place like Zoo Glamour is a cross between a chemistry lab and an honours night at a high class hotel.

​Qualifications and experise coming from all angles.

​I really had no idea of the skill required, both technical and personal, to be a hairdresser.

Where else would you go to sit in a chair, for possibly hours on end and talk to someone else, face to face. They won't judge you or make comment about what you are saying. Even better - the won't charge you for it either.

Barrister’s book chamber – 50,000 books and counting

​The Barrister's chamber in Retford has 50,000 books and counting.
What does 50,000 books look like?
They go from floor to ceiling in several good sized rooms and 3 floors of an old building opposite St Swithun's church in East Retford, Nottinghamshire.
Why do people read books and go to old and second hand book stores?
Because you can instantly find someone interested in the same thing and have something in common.
Forget dating apps - If you are interested in a genre of book, chances are someone else local to you is as well.
​You can even forget Amazon - head down to your local book shop. Barrister's book chambers in Retford, Nottinghamshire.

​It is hard to explain what it looks like (and smells like) inside. Each level (of the old building) is floor to ceiling with books.  Some images are below.

Take an easy seat...​

​It is always hard to convey any kind of "experience" in a humble photograph. The best way to experience something - like a cavern of second hand books - is to to there yourself. In person

Here is the link. Barristers book chamber.

Walking is FUNKY – With Rebecca Norton

​In this episode with Sheffield coach Rebecca Norton, I learn what the one thing people do when they switch their phone on when they come back from a walk. (Clue - It's not checking social media). 

Plus - what are you likely to see when you head round your local city looking for things you may have missed. (It could be the image *cough* of a naked lady).

ESSENTIAL advice from an unlikely source…

Funky Thinkers

​Funky Thinker 130

Dave Elsom

Funky Thinker 130 Dave Elsom said he felt better when said he wouldn't be able to draw the girl with a pearl earring (below) even in a locked room with a gun to his head.

So we got talking about proper art. That is - carving out of lino and making a general mess. Watch this space for a new FUNKY show heading

Also in this episode - where to stand to take photographs at your local parkrun, WHO WAS the smart guy who did the tech stuff on Jason & the argonauts and what does that have to do with red or blue?

​Lots of pictures and very little writing on this episode page. But - do be sure to visit Dave's shop.
