May 2022 :  Men Don’t Grow Old!

May 2022 : Men Don’t Grow Old!

Men Don’t Grow Old! Maria my good lady wife said to me last night, “Why don’t men accept that they get older”? “Of course, we do” I responded. “No, you don’t” she said “Just look at you, you expect to swim, cycle and run just as quickly, as you did when you were in...

March 2022 : Sausage, Egg and Chips!

It is interesting to see how the eating habits of this country has change over the last 50 years. When I was young, our Saturday lunch was always sausage, egg and chips, the reason being that it was a quick lunch before Dad and I went to watch Newcastle play. They...

January 2022: Happy New Year

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and have a happy and healthy New Year. Each new year is a fresh start as far as I am concerned as it gives me a chance to reflect on the previous year, see what I can learn from it and I also look to see what anniversaries...

I must admit I was never a fan of ‘April Fool’s’ day when I was at school. I was always the small, slightly tubby, naïve one who always got caught out with April Fool pranks. It was a mighty relief when it got to 12 noon and the pranks stopped, or better still when...

March 2021: A New Hope?

March 2021: A New Hope?

I think I should confess that I’m a secret “Star Wars” fan. I enjoyed the last couple of films, but particularly liked the first three. I remember vividly seeing the first one in 1977 – I’m still not sure why George Lucas started with Episode IV? We were living in...
