  • 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.

Apocalypse When ?

Posted by Big John on January 14, 2011

WordPress have informed me that although I only posted once during 2010 I had more than 13,000 visitors to my blog, so I am tempted to start ranting again, starting with what has changed since my Christmas post of 2009 ?

BLOODY NOTHING ! …  The bankers are still awarding themselves billions  … the crooks at Westminster are thinking up new ways of fiddling their expenses … Reality TV and ‘celebs’ fill our newspapers …  global warming left us with snow up to our bums during the coldest December on record … Still no one has a clue as to why our young servicemen and women are dying in the arsehole of the world … We’re all doomed as the world ends in May  … and ‘er Maj ? .. Well I’ll leave her alone as she will be busy making sandwiches for Willy’s wedding.

So what does 2011 hold in store for us apart from that wedding? Well for a start there’s petrol (gas) at £6 per gallon (That’s about $9 to you lucky Americans). Not to mention VAT at 20% and lots of pissing about by Cameron and Clegg as they try to conceive new ways of emptying our pockets.

Still cricket fans started the year well with England’s win in the ‘Ashes’ , but as I don’t give a toss (“full” or otherwise) about cricket I’ll wait for that big event in May. That four horse race. My money is on the skinny bloke ….

…   on the “pale horse” !

  1. Hi, John. It’s good to see you back. I hope you’ll keep on blogging and ranting for a long time.
