As some of you know after many years soaring the updrafts in
various parts of the world, I gave up gliding and to gain a bit
more fitness and fill some time, I took up Ceroc dancing.
At the end of last year, just before I was snowed in, I went to
the Christmas event at Windsor. I'll be candid; I'm not a great fan
of Windsor: it's on the same night as Henley and it's like dancing
in an aircraft hanger except that you get a smell of chlorine from
the swimming area. Despite the snow and Ice, I arrived
shortly after opening: I wasn't the first, there must have been 30
or so there before me. The music was definitely not dance music:
everyone was sitting down. Actually this state of affairs continued
for nearly an hour, by which time there were about 80 people who
had come to dance, to a person, sitting around a dance floor.
I must admit that it takes some skill as a DJ to play music
for an hour that Dancers refuse to get up and dance to. They or he
For the New year I'll be going to Henley, Reading, Newbury, occasionally further afield but definitely not Windsor.
Ah well, back to the agency software
