Humour

It could be worse #Sunday #ramble

So, the Tories pulled a fast one. Instead of targeting Labour seats they went after the Lib Dems instead. It makes sense, rather than go after  the left wing constituencies, they swayed the middle of the road voter to turn right. It could be worse though, even though we have five more years of austerity.

First day of spring #review

FIRST DAY OF SPRING

Yes, it’s the first day of spring. Yesterday it was the spring equinox, the solar eclipse and there was even a super-moon, I didn’t see the super-moon, it was a bit cloudy. These things are events like Christmas and birthdays. (more…)


Jezza Clarkson suspended #Sunday #ramble

Yes, this week Jezza Clarkson of Top Gear fame was suspended for slapping a producer. We all know he was just messin’ around and joking. He once said Wednesbury was the worst place on earth. He was joking, he loves Wednesbury! (more…)


The Saturday Review #Blackcountry

GREAT BRIDGE (49)

The sun came out a little bit on Tuesday, so we went out to take some photographs. This is Farley Park in Great Bridge. I’ll be using more pictures that I took on Tuesday for my weekly photography lesson on Wednesday. (more…)


Time flies #Sunday #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and time for another ramble through the overgrown pathways of my mind. Many of my readers are bloggers themselves and they know how hard it can be to make a start on a post and add those all important keywords for the search engines. This isn’t as easy as it looks! (more…)


Looking forward to Spring?

Retailers always have another way to get us to part with our money. The latest one seems to be ‘pay-day deals’. I wonder how they know when we’ve been paid. It all sounds very Orwellian to me. (more…)


In a class of my own

I think Britain’s class system is out-dated, but it’s is still a big influence over millions of people’s lives. The working classes are supposed to be the uncouth, beer drinking proletariat with few manners and little culture. While the middle classes aspire to be like their lords and masters;  the upper classes. (more…)


A mid-winter ramble

In the movies you get that guy who lives in the big house all alone and looks a bit weird. I think that’s me! I have a house guest at the moment. My brother joked that I could be the axe murderer. I joked that when my guest goes home, he could call the police and say she’s missing; they might come and dig my garden for me! (more…)


Remember summer? #weather

The weather has got colder in the UK, but so far we have had little snow. I thought I would use a photo from summer to cheer everyone up. There are colds and flu going around now, so many of us are taking paracetamol and eating chicken soup in a bid to survive winter. (more…)
