  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC. That's 'Before Computers'. Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all... Archbishop Temple's School.

    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock 'n' Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during 'The Cold War'...and then

    I became 'a family'. Which meant that I sort of missed the 'swinging sixties', but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.

    During the 'Thatcher Years' I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 50 years of happy marriage.

Just popped in for Christmas.

Posted by Big John on December 12, 2009

By popular demand (‘briggy’ and ‘The Red Baron’) I am leaving my comfy armchair for a short visit to my blog, and after blowing the dust off my keyboard and mouse, I am about to, once again, briefly inflict my grumpy old git observations on anyone who happens to find their way here.

I’ve been away for a year and during that time not a lot seems to have changed in this country nor in the world in general … The bankers are still pocketing our money… We are still being governed by a gang of crooks who live on another planet… ‘Dumbing down’ of everything is continuing at a pace… The polar bears have not disappeared… The Taliban are still around… Religious nutters abound… and… ‘er Maj is still,.. as you would expect of the poor old dear.. Umm..  “working hard” !

Christmas is almost upon us. Well it seems to have been here since about Halloween judging by the booze and ‘bogof’ adverts and crap shows on TV.

Still, I musn’t get into my “Bah! Humbug!” mode; and so I wish everyone a very .. HAPPY CHRISTMAS  .. for it is the season of “Goodwill to all men” … except, of course, to the ‘fatcat’  bankers and  …

…. those thieving bastards in Parliament !
