  • 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.

There goes another one !

Posted by Big John on December 23, 2007

It’s hard to believe, but today sees my 4th anniversary as a blogger.

I wonder if I will ‘run out of steam’ before my fifth ?

Anyway I’m now off for a few days away from the computer, and so will leave you with my best wishes for Christmas and the New Year …


( With apologies again to Clement Clarke Moore).

… OK, so I know that it’s the same as last year, but what did you expect …

…    a bloody  SINGING REINDEER ?   🙂

    Very clever and I didn’t catch this last year.
    Guess I’m about the only one not taking a hiatus over the next few days.
    Enjoy your holiday.
