  • 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.

Only 125 days to go !

Posted by Big John on August 22, 2011

One item from the usual pile of junk mail on my doormat this morning suddenly caught my eye, and I looked out of the window just to check that the sun was shining, the leaves were still on the trees, and some people were going about their business dressed, as I was, in shorts and T shirt. I stepped out of the door. It was a fine warm August day with not a cloud in the sky, and yet this had appeared …

Usually I don’t go into “Bah ! Humbug !” mode until early October when I get to Sainsbury’s and find that the shelf stackers have been working hard filling the aisles with fancy packs of mince pies, giant tins of ‘Quality Street’, large pots of Stilton cheese, and all the other festive season ‘goodies’, but this year my little rant has come early. I wonder how long it will be before my local pub restaurant puts out the sign …

… “Book early for Christmas” ?
