I am determined to stay focused and up beat these next few months simply because otherwise one will climb into bed and pull the covers over you're head. I dont class it as a New Years resolution more something to aspire to. In these nightmare times its difficult to see past your next meal and thinking about a wargame with a real live opponent is more like a fantasy than anything else. But small stepsall that.

I like to read as much as possible around a subject but I am amazed at just how little there is about the Wars of the Roses. By that I mean a decently researched , meaty history not a small, dip your toes in the water book. Ive had to return to my Conn Iggulden fictional book series to attempt to get a 'feel' for the period. I know the history is a bit skewed but it at least has a period flavour although he clearly didnt like Richard of York whom I have a soft spot for. Still its better than that train crash on television, 'The Great.??? My wife managed to prise the controls out of my fingers as I screamed at the bollocks I was witnessing, why do they make these dreadful programmes, it makes Noggin the Nog look like a documentary. Stay positive.... stay focussed......
