Refresh the soul – Or a day out scootering!

Afternoon readers. My last post raised the act of soul refreshment! No this is not some Lord Bragg sponsored drink, but the simple act of travel and shopping, of course! This is the story of one man’s weekend to do just that! Along with his beautiful, and yet somewhat mysterious wife, he takes on an…

Rules are made to be broken?

Hi, readers! Another few weeks in onein400 land have passed. I apologise for the recent ‘radio silence’. The good weather and organised chaos have kept me from quill and ink! But now I am back! Settle down with your last remaining Easter eggs (some half price ones are still available in the stores!), enjoy another…

Times they are a changin….

Or are they? This week’s theme, to weave into my everyday life, is one of those loose phrases that is often both true and false. Of course, it’s also a classic Bob Dylan song. More from the legendary Bob later but, in the meantime, on with my epistle produced during the recent UK snow! I…

13 days Later…

Welcome to 2019 readers! My post is a little bit late. Thirteen days late to be precise. I decided to let all of you get back into the real swing of things before penning my first strange, but often entirely true, musings of the year. Has the New Year reset, and perhaps, purified the whole of humanity?…

1981 – A Vintage London Fairy Tale

The year is 1981. It is 5.40pm and Lord Lee Bragg, in his Soho Office, is just tidying up his papers after a long trying, yet invigorating, Christmas Eve working day. He is about to set off for Waterloo Station heading home……

Get a grip!

Hi, readers! Get a grip! What do I mean, my loyal subscribers? Read on, into the mystical, yet strangely, totally believable world of onein400…..

That was the summer that was – Part 1

Wow, what a summer! Perfect weather, and time spent with great friends. Best weather since 1976, which I actually remember quite well. So what’s been happening? During my self-imposed exile from the blog over summer, the world has provided plenty of inspiration, through daily events, crazy stories, but above all from the stupidity of the…

Land of the Survivors

Readers, I write this post during a brief pause in our heatwave here in the UK. It’s coming back, don’t worry. Does this beautiful weather conceal a secret? Are we doomed? Way back in 1954, the celebrated science fiction writer, and door to door salesman, HG Bragg in his novel The Land of the Survivors painted…

Calling Dr Bragg, Come in Dr Bragg…

Dr Bragg!! Who is he? A new type of Doctor; a doctor of all, a doctor of medicine, feelings, music, life and all things important. This week, into his world we tumble and venture. Shall we jump?…..yes let’s jump NOW!! But first, take a good mouthful of Bragg’s Potion 26………….

Weapon of Choice Too!

Good day all. Here is Dr Peter Scott-Morgan’s promised guest post as part of MND Awareness Month here in the UK. A provocative article on the challenges we all might face and the pioneering research he is undertaking. His post is about choices that we could take that, as Peter himself often says, will help us…

Lights, Camera, Action!

Alfred Bragg’s pictures proudly present Window of Absence sponsored by Bragg’s Heart bypasses (3 for the price of 2!) A story of tension, human stupidities, determination, mysterious characters, suspicious events and loads of wonderful South Africans!

Newport Pagnell or bust!

I found an old copy of Pamela Bragg – How to Remain a Lady – the best-selling modern life book, published way back in 1960, and only available in the Home Counties….

Holding Pattern!

“Hello, readers! This is your pilot speaking, Captain onein400! We are just coming into land. However, we are going to have to circle for a while. About a week, ok?” In place of a regular post this week, a memories post!

The longest week of the year!!!

Welcome to the end of British Summer Time (BST). What have you done with your extra hour!!? You could have used it anywhere. We spent our free hour in a traffic jam! How cunning of us!?

Friday 13th – This time it’s cordless!!

Friday 13th!! You best be frightened! Take no risks! A day of fear, and one man is on a mission to rid the world of the unbelievers! It was so scary yesterday that I didn’t post! There were other reasons, but why let these get in the way of a good story?

To boldly go where no man has gone before…

The ladies’ restrooms!! No don’t be silly. However, the last couple of weeks have seen me burst (literally) on to the scene with my very own Starship, a Travelscoot! As discussed in my last post, I have this great new transport. The world, at least here in the UK, goes back to work and school…
