I’ve been quietly seething over the armchair critics who are bitching in the media about how *badly* our people are performing at the Olympics because they are *only* coming home with silver or bronze medals instead of gold.What a crock of crap this is!! Just qualifying for the Olympics makes them heroes in my book. … More Who needs the armchair critics?
As you will be aware my new ISP did *not* connect me to the net overnight as was promised and in fact kept me waiting almost 8 days before they let me loose on the world. During this time I had a choice of getting on with the housework… or watching the TV. And what … More So… the Beijing Olympics?
Our best wishes are sent for a speedy recovery to Christina Applegate, recently diagnosed with breast cancer. My memories of her are mostly from her role as the ditzy kid ‘Kelly Bundy’ from Married with Children and this is perhaps her best known role, at least for most males around the globe.

Strangely even before it arrived I knew it was on the way. Over the many years of my life … More Sick as a Dog
The time has come to bit the bullet and admit to myself that my back really *is* giving out. I actually pointed out in the ‘family forum’ a few days ago that I’ve finally let myself get a ‘mobility card’ to let me park closer to shops etc. I’ve not got one before, partly because … More The time has come… or something.
