  • 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.

A double (weirdo) whammy !

Posted by Big John on September 27, 2017

Following on from my last post, I see that Sainsbury’s are planning to ensure that my visits to their store become even more perilous when they equip their ‘supermarket zombie’ customers with an app which will enable them to pay for their groceries etc. and leave the store without passing through the checkouts, thus turning them, also, into ‘smartphone zombies’ ! …

… I can hardly wait !

  1. I can’t imagine how that would work! I guess the store would have to depend on the honor system, unless each item was tagged with a price. I’m really showing my age, and my ignorance here!
