  • 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.

Yet another instant ‘tradition’ !

Posted by Big John on April 30, 2012

I see that we have imported another inovation, which we don’t need, from the United States, and at first my old mind ‘boggled’ when I read about an event called a “gender-reveal party”, for I had a vision of people standing around in Ku Klux Klan style costumes sipping cocktails and lifting their robes to show off their ‘naughty bits’. Umm ! … Not exactly my scene I thought, although I imagine it could get quite exciting when the little sausages and spicy dips were handed round.

Well, sad to say, I had let my imagination run away with itself again, for this latest craze is nothing more than another type of ‘shower’ where prospective parents show off to their friends and family by inviting them to eat cakes with either a blue or pink filling once their baby’s sex has been revealed by sonogram. Well it’s a bit more complicated than that, but I got bored with reading about it, so if you are really interested … read this !

I wonder what colour cake you offer your guests if during the scan the baby, instead of opening it’s legs, turned to show only …

… it’s little fat arse ?

    Should pose no problems at all in this day and age when LGBT is perfectly acceptable.
