  • 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 54 years of happy marriage.

They’re still around !

Posted by Big John on October 26, 2007

So scientists have discovered, from DNA samples, that some Neanderthals had fair skin and ginger hair, and yet they still do not know why they died out around 30,000 years ago.

I’ve got news for them … They didn’t !

You can still spot them any day of the week as they wander around our shopping malls and supermarkets, although they are less hairy now, due to their need to cover themselves in tattoos and body piercings.

A nocturnal sub-species can be found in many city centres at weekends. They can be identified by their mating ritual, which involves females exposing their boobs and males showing their bare arses whenever possible. I understand that vomiting in the gutter is a way of marking out their territory. 

It is also now believed that our once hairy cousins could speak.

They could … and still can … Well at least they sometimes try …  

“Yeah. it’s cool in’it … It’s like stuff ‘n like in’it (sniff) … know wot I mean like … right (grunt) … it’s nuffin man … Umm yeah … wikked bruv (spit) … whatever”  …  (Please insert your own ‘F’ words).

It was once believed that these ‘knuckle draggers’ were killed off by our cave dwelling ancestors, ‘Homo Sapiens’, but although they might have tried they obviously failed. …

…  Pass me my club !

    You are so right. I found out they still existed when I started dating, again after my divorce. Just before I gave up on men forever.

    Our beloved Bill Cosby has taken on the use of trashy language and urban blight language in his latest book. I do not know why speaking correctly can be looked down on by so many people.

    Don’t give up on men completely. There still are some Prince Charmings out there. I know, I found mine six years ago.
