  • 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.

Don’t munch this bunch for lunch.

Posted by Big John on March 25, 2012

On my weekly trip to Sainsbury’s I decided to ‘splash out’ and buy a £1 bunch of ‘daffs’. When I picked them up I was amazed to see the attached label … 

No ! .. I wasn’t surprised by the price but by this  …

Just as I was thinking … “who the bloody hell would eat daffodils ?” … a lady standing next to me saw the look on my face, and in a rich voice straight from ‘the valleys’ said …

 “We do in Wales luv” !

    I love this post, John…and I have a friend who puts all sorts of flowers into salads so it’s not a strange concept after all.
