  • 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.

Knock twice and ask for Peter.

Posted by Big John on April 28, 2014

Blimey ! … The ex-archdruidbishop of Canterbury agrees with me !

I see that since leaving office someone decided to make him Lord (No! not the ‘Lord’) Williams of Oystermouth (Where do they get these titles ?).

Still, that’s nothing compared to what the Pope has been up to last weekend, as old Frankie has performed one Hell of a spectacular ceremony in Rome canonizing two of his predecessors, Popes John Paul II and John XXIII, which means that they can now pass through the pearly gates as Saints.

Well good for them ! Perhaps when they get in there (I wonder if it’s the same Paradise where all those suicide bombers go ?) they will have a word with the bloke in charge about commanding all his followers back on earth to get out of the habit of…

…   blowing each other to pieces ?

    We only can hope, but better not have much faith!

    Stop blowing each other to pieces? Now that would be one heck of a miracle!
