  • 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.

It’s time to say .. Bye, Bye, Benny !

Posted by Big John on February 14, 2013

Shock ! .. Horror ! .. the whole world is shaken ! .. Well it is if you believe some of those ridiculous news reports in the media this week.

What’s happened ? … An 85 year old man has decided that it’s time to ‘put his feet up’, although in this case those feet will be clad in some snazzy red slippers, and he will be moving to a refurbished nunnery where he will be shacked-up cared for by some nuns from a ‘closed order’. I bet that some old sisters, who knew him in his younger days, are looking forward to seeing him and waggling their wimples at him once again !

The official story is that the old Vicar of Christ has a dodgy ticker and is well passed his ‘sell by date’, but my clerical contacts inside the Vatican tell me that my ‘Papal’ posts .. “Oops!” … Abbot Dionysius Exiguus” … “Vatican secrets revealed !” .. and .. “Pyro-Pontiffs” .. may have helped to expose this homophobic, misogynistic, passé Pontiff as a pervert priest protector, Mafia money launderer, Hitler’s ‘love child’, a ‘convent creeper’ and …

…  close friend of Jimmy Savile !
