  • 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.

Is that grilled or fried ?

Posted by Big John on October 15, 2013

I’ve ranted in the past about those press reports which tell us which everyday foods are supposed to be harmful to our health, and today I’ve just read that .. “a rasher of bacon a day can harm a man’s fertility” !

OK, so there is nothing funny about something which may reduce the chances of a man becoming a father, but what I do find more than a little amusing in this report from Harvard University is that the researchers say that the same results from eating a rasher of bacon could be caused by …

… “a small sausage” !  ..   :-(

    We should now start propagating the eating of rashers of bacon and sausages among our men as a replacement to the other methods of family planning!

  2. Another great post – I liked your Lesus Christ one the other day when I first got into this ‘blogging’ thing.
    The thing is, I’m a vegetarian – does that mean I’ve got the ‘all clear’ on this one? Still if it is really true then how come Tottenham Hotspur have so many supporters when strictly speaking, according to your post, they should be extinct by now?

  3. A rasher a day keeps the stork away? Hell, I just couldn’t resist. My apologies.

    You just couldn’t let that one go by, could you John? I can’t tell you how many articles I read that could use your editing expertise.
