Moving and not moving

Hello Cats.

2021 has started out as a rather poor year for TAFKAS.  Several crappy issues in the first 8 days were topped off by a ladder fall yesterday resulting in a broken foot.

Anyhoo.  TAFKAS is moving to SubStack.  Hope to see you there.

Bye and Best.

    Sorry to hear about the foot although I do hope you are under 55 as the ambos say no one over that age should get up a ladder when noting the statistics for falls they have to take to hospital.

    Sorry to see you go. What is Substack? I wish you well, and your foot, too.

    Too bad you’re moving to that lonely place.

    I’m forever grateful for your succinct statement : “Regulatory complexity is a subsidy from Small Business to Big Business”

    Your handle always reminded me of Private Eye’s Dave Spart

    What is Substack?

    The Substack is a little old place where we can get together
    Well, it’s set way back in the middle of a field
    The whole shack shimmies
    Yeah, the whole shack shimmies
    The whole shack shimmies when everybody’s
    Movin’ around and around and around and around

    Bullshit! You were pulling your dog’s tail.

    I got me a car, it’s as big as a whale
    And we’re headin’ on down to the Substack
    I got me a Chrysler, it seats about 20
    So hurry up and bring your jukebox money

    A site that hosts a brilliant investigative reporter like Glenn Greenwald seems like an excellent choice, Spartacus. Good luck at Substack and thanks for your excellent work here.

    For curious Cats: — a place for independent writing.

  12. Ubique says:

    Get well soon.

  13. Damon says:

    What’s in it for you? Smaller audience?

  14. m0nty says:

    Get well Spartacus!

    The above reference to the B52’s Loveshack – very funny!

    Sorry about your foot. It must make it worse that it’s one of those injuries – ladder fall – that nagging doctors on TV are always warning us about. Next you’ll tell me you put your eye out with a champagne cork or a firework. I hope that at least you were wearing a mask and high-vis when it happened.

    Can you take Lucille with you?

    A ladder buyback for old blokes would save so many lives!

    Or buy Lucille an extension ladder!

    Take it easy Mr Tafkas, and follow your doctor’s orders for rehabilitation etc and get back to normal and eat healthily to help overall wellbeing (would be my advice anyway).

    Get well soon, Tafkas.

    My father fell off a ladder when he was well into his 80s.
    Fortunately he was only two or three rungs up, but his head came within literally millimetres of slamming into a concrete slab on the ground.
    He suffered no real injury, and he lived another ten years or so, until 96.

    Best wishes TAFKAS. This country and the world is so fucked I no longer care, our poor bloody grand kids are inheriting a shit heap.

  23. Wallace says:

    I fell off the top rung of a ladder once. Easy to do.
    This was in a library. The ladder was two rungs high.
    Still have the scars on my shin to prove it.
    We have a cat that hides under the bed whenever the ceiling fan is on.
    I am like that with ladders.

    A fellow broken foot sufferer! I broke my left foot in July and it is still giving me grief.

    Hope yours does better. Meanwhile, comiserations.

    Sad to see you go, I have enjoyed your posts

  26. Moved not gone. Subscribe at substack.

  27. Exit Stage Right says:

    Not much sympathy from me.
    I have cancer, but does anyone care.
    Broken foot. Phht. Grow a set you wimp.
    I won’t miss your posts. Mostly elitist shit.

  28. Nato says:


    I’m going to miss reading your spots. You use words differently to most.
    If I were the type to register with a central administration for permission to access your work I would, but I’m not, and it’s sad because I’m the one to miss out.

    Stay safe

    Poor Spartacus! And here I was, being you over on the OT.

    All the very best. Like your namesake, you’ll be a toughie. Just go easy on the tanning oil. 🙂

    I hope things will be okay for you, Exit Stage Right.

    Thank you Candy,

    Much appreciated.
