  • 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.

An Easter surprise.

Posted by Big John on April 8, 2007

I can’t believe that this is Easter in England. No rain. No freezing wind and no snow ! 

The temperature on the patch of paving that I call a patio is 70 F in the shade and this weekend I am wearing my shorts for the first time this year (not a pretty sight).

Judging by the lack of blogging activity at the moment, I guess most of you have better things to do than sit in front of a computer.

Ah well ! … Back to more of this …


I just hope the bloke next door doesn’t start stinking up the neighbourhood by offering up a dozen burgers …

…     as some sort of  religious sacrifice !

    I’m glad you have gotten the warm weather because it left here with a tailwind last week! It was 80 degrees in Nashville, 70 when we got home and today it snowed! What’s up with that? On another note, we smoked some baby back ribs for the holiday, but is had nothing to do with religion or a sacrifice. Sure did taste good though!

    Too much ‘Stella’ is why I didn’t bother with the computer, as the keys kept changing position .. strange that!
