There's been a whole lot going on in Mr Starbuck's life of late, and not a lot of time to catch up on my favourite blogs (over there in the right sidebar) let alone keep the world enlightened about my progress through the Twentyfirst Century. So there now follows a series of four short sharp updates for all you e-celeb ("yeah, right") obsessives. I apologise for the non-blog-standard order of this posting above the subsequent four postings. However I am a timetraveller after all. I thank you.
