  • 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.

Pomp and popcorn.

Posted by Big John on April 26, 2011

I had intended to make this blog a … ‘Royal Wedding Free Zone’ … but I now read that the USA is in the grip of “royal wedding fever”.

At first I found this hard to believe, but having just watched the BBC news and seen the scenes outside Westminster Abbey where scores of American TV crews are already covering the preparations (including this nutter), I could not resist giving our cousins from ‘over the pond’ (and I suspect a few Brits) some information regarding their favourite ‘royal’.

When ‘er Maj and her mob gather on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the wedding to wave to the ‘plebs’….
 
…   Don’t expect Colin Firth to make a speech !
