  • 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 56 years of happy marriage.

Serious Stuff !

Posted by Big John on August 21, 2006

We have recently had massive chaos at airports which has led to our Asian Muslim cousins protesting that they will be ‘profiled’.

There have been several cases of Muslim men being wrongly arrested and only the other day two young Asians where ‘thrown off’ a plane because other passengers did not trust them.

Now another group of young Asians have hit the headlines proving that they cannot be trusted, for they have commited one of the most heinous crimes anyone could commit in this country….for …Shock ! …Horror !…Bloody Hell Chaps !

……..They tampered with a cricket ball !

    Hi Big John: Isn’t this an amazing world that we live in? I don’t know whether to laugh or cry half the time. Oh, and I certainly hope that you are a better hubby than your old grandad. I remember those day when the man was “king” and we waited on them hand and foot. The young women of today have no appreciation of what it was like to live then. Thank the lord for Women’s Lib!
