  • 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.

“All in the best possible taste”.

Posted by Big John on March 17, 2008

I don’t know much about French politics or politicians, but I do know that the French are well known for their elegance and good taste when it comes to ‘putting on the style’, so I was amazed to read that President Nicolas Sarkozy is in danger of embarassing ‘er Maj when he visits her next week by wearing his ‘chunky’ Rolex watch and Ray Ban sunglasses.

Blimey ! …  If  they call him the ‘King of Bling’ !

How about  …  🙄


…       this little collection ?  😆

  1. I have never met the Queen and am unlikely ever to do so. I hear, however, that those who do are first taken aside and coached in what to wear and how to behave in the royal presence.

    Now this strikes me as most discourteous. Why should people have to dress and behave in a particular way just because they are meeting the Queen? Anyone who gets away with flouting the house rules goes up in my estimation. Sarko, after all, is where he is because he was elected, something that right royal bunch of parasites can never claim.

    I hope he reminds her that France has a reputation for cutting off royal heads. Wouldn’t that go down nicely over cocktails?

    Now John, ‘fes up. Did you go to photo-shop and alter that photo or what? I know you added all that costume jewelry. Noone could possible dress like that and hope to get away with it. Oops, I just realized…she is a queen so I guess she makes her own rules, like all the politicians do !!
