Rob Little’s Blog – musings of an English / British Tour Guide where I not only vent about things that “get my goat” but, also, publish lovely photos and eccentric stories about “this Sceptered Isle”!

PS Happy Birthday to my brother and to my son who also have birthdays today!!

The Erotica Album was released in October 1992 – the present Mrs Little bought me the Erotica Book – the one with the metal cover – for Christmas that year with no idea what was inside. I still have the book and it has some value today!

Yesterday, Wednesday, on the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in North Wales…..

Yesterday we drove up through the Welsh Marches and had lunch in Ludlow before treating my Customers to a walk over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal across the River Dee – amazing 18th century engineering by Thomas Telford.

Great Britain……is Already GREAT…..!!

Trump’s sanctions send our NATO Ally, Turkey, straight into the arms of the Russians…….VERY CLEVER…..or very CALCULATING??

So Turkey’s President Erdoğan is due to meet the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov today to discuss “matters of mutual interest“! And, after President Trump “shot Turkey in the back”, I bet they have a lot to discuss!

Turkey is a major member of NATO with its strategic location bordering the Middle East as well as The Bosporus, the Black Sea and Eastern Mediterranean. The Russians would love to have a closer relationship with Turkey and this looks like its being facilitated either deliberately or by accident by President Trump; whose impositions of economic sanctions have caused the Turkish Lira to drop like a stone.

To accuse an American President if not knowing what he is doing would be disrespectful so we can only assume that he did!

Castles at Ludlow and nearby Stokesay in Shropshire…..
Sunday, 12th August 2018

Ludlow in Shropshire is the most gorgeous market town with a food festival and markets 3 or 4 times a week. The town is dominated by its fantastic castle.

Nearby Stokesay Castle is really more of a fortified Manor House first constructed in the 1300s by Laurence of Ludlow – one of Britain’s wealthiest at the time!

Best wishes.
