  • 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.

  1. I’m sorry you’re suffering with the flu. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) here in America, has been warning that the flu virus is not very effective this year because the virus has mutated. So, we have a raging epidemic, and I am trying to avoid being around people, which isn’t very difficult, actually, because I really don’t much like people, anyway. Not in bunches, anyway. Individually, some are acceptable.

    Happy New Year, anyway, John, to you and your family. I hope 2015 will be kind to you.
