  1. Retire! Me!

Our Doctors car is always parked outside our house(yes he does visit!) I feel he would like to administer a "double tap" to the back of our heads. If you feel you are a burden PM me your address and I will ask him to call! Ain't getting old grand!

  3. Thank you all Emergency Service people

  4. Drinking (and drugging) and driving

    To soft on all drink,drug,illegal and stolen car drivers. The Police catch them and then they walk away smirking. As for this peddler of death,good riddance to him. Thrown out of the car with two others if he was obaying the speed limit and belted up bit implausable to me. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/12/19/birmingham-crash-man-killed-smash-left-six-dead-drug-dealer/

  8. Rodney Bewes has died

    Sad news indeed. I hope James Bolam can sleep at night for keeping him poor! In 2010, Bewes claimed Bolam had prevented the BBC from showing repeats of The Likely Lads. He said: "I'm very poor so I have to tour one-man shows because Jimmy has buried The Likely Lads. You have to sign a waiver for them to repeat it and he stopped it while he did New Tricks. "Well, New Tricks has been on so long, and is so repeated, that he must be very wealthy; me, I've just got an overdraft and a mortgage." He added: "He should let it be repeated on BBC2 or BBC1; to stop other people earning money is cruel." Bewes is survived by his four children; Billy, Joe, Tom and Daisy.

  11. At this time of year

    A very brave lady and a favourite poem of mine also.
  12. At this time of year

    Please if you have it in your hearts please support The Royal British Legion. Here is a poem written by the Father of a Light Dragoon who was killed in Afganistan in 2009 here is in the eternal realms a great line of men Who march along, a long winding road Their task is to collect, the dead of ages Taken from the ranks of the fallen. After midnight on the 30th of May 2009 The great line halts, and a Sgt Majors voice rings out.. Not as on the parade ground, but in the solomn silence increaced The short command is given, "Get fell in, to the rear of the column" Two soldiers take their place, adjust their equiptment, and calm their troubled expressions. These fallen two, shoulder arms And the great line of men The dead of ages, taken from the ranks of the fallen Moves off at a slow march Winding its way along the long winding road Almost out of sight, the line visably halts, and a Sgt Majors voice rings out "Get fell in to the rear of the column" And we who mortals be Strain to hear the sound of their marching feet
