Southall Water Tower (AKA Southall's Castle).

Now converted into flats.

Very nice too. That's the type of high rise that I like.

Good. I'm having my second vaccination on Saturday week. Where? - In Southall, 300 yards from there.

Surely there must be better things to do in Southall?

Climb to the top of the gasworks and see if you can see Guildford.

A good idea at one time, but there isn't much of a view from them now that they've been demolished.

Sit in the park then and contemplate your navel. Anything's got to be better than submitting to an untried government injection.

I'm used to having needles stuck in me. On Tuesday I had a blood test, and the nurse had to try several places on my arm and hand until a sufficient blood flow was obtained. But I forbore to ask her if the first needles were inserted in vain.

It's not the needle you need have the needle about, but the needlessness of it all.

They tell you that you'll feel a sharp scratch. In our day they told us that we'd "feel a prick". Because this raised certain peoples' blood pressure, they had to rephrase it.

Today, 9th April, is my 10th wedding anniversary. But alas the chapel in King's College London (I've just determined) where today I'd hoped to go back to commemorate it, thanks to the pandemic, isn't currently open to the public.

1. In my day it was "just a little prick", but the reward was a barley sugar.

2. That is very sad, and (in my opinion) wrong. The house of God should not be closed.

I went past it yesterday (en route to Taplow). It's uncomfortably close to the railway - the windows must rattle when the Intercitys scream past at 125mph - but the interiors must be a lot more interesting than yer usual. And it's conveniently close to the vaccination centre, so on balance perhaps it's a good place to live.

No-one would see in your bedroom at that speed, though the view from the basement windows must be pretty grim. But why would you want to live so close to a vaccination centre? Are you expecting government jabs ad infinitum?

Apart from this building and a single Tudor manor house, Southall is a uniformly dreary, grotty place architecturally, and I wouldn't want to live there, period. But if I had to, a flat in this building (the only residential one with any history or character) would be my first choice, but not on the side facing the railway.

I've no idea whether or not "government" jabs can be expected ad infinitum, and don't care, because I won't be around ad infinitum.
