This is Woden’s Cave in Ordsall, Salford. It’s where hermits lived in the Middle Ages. Now that I am approaching middle age, I shall be retiring here tomorrow, after I have spoken to Alan Beswick on his Breakfast Show on BBC Radio Manchester at 8.45am and explained to him that my novel about electing a Mayor in Salford is finally finished and up on my website, http://www.Salford.me/

Here he is, the other Mike Scantlebury. This is the Mike Scantlebury that’s skilled in art and design. Ah, that means he isn’t the one who lives in Salford and writes books. (Who knows, he probably doesn’t even care that we’re electing a Mayor in Salford in May. He may not. After all, looks like few people round here do, either.)

Here I am, on my flying lessons, with that other famous man.

(No, actually, it isn’t Barton Aerodrome in Salford. It’s nowhere near that, man. Nowhere, man.)

The point is that the middle guy is Prince William. At the moment he’s busy in the Falkland Islands, but in June he’ll be supporting the Olympic Games, here. (I know that, because it says so in my ebook ‘Hartliss Protector’, which you’ll find on Amazon’s Kindle shop.)
