|Terry Carey,Mick Pass, Roly Rowsell et al|
Just paid a fortune (well a fortune to a pensioner) to renew my description, conscription, inscription, prescription, subscription...whatever, and wonder what’s going on. It was never boring a few years ago and, to be honest, I’m not yet familiar with the site to rediscover whether it has become boring, so I’ll probably hang around for a bit and see.
Seriously, if the site has become boring I blame no-one. I seem to remember a few years ago when we decided to elect a new government from the members on this site. I seem to remember that Terry Carey was Prime Minister or something of that stature and maybe Mick Pass was Chancellor. We suggested that we could do a better job of governing the country or something as daft anyway and then we all had a little chuckle in our respective garrets I assume. The problem is that the world has become a little more serious and polititians have become a bit more silly and I think it’s time we asserted ourselves as senior citizens. There are too many sites for us to inhabit in the hours we have in retirement and so - in my case anyway - we dip in and out; spreading alittle wisdom here and a little chortle there and nobody, nobody takes us seriously any more. Let’s face it Guys and Gals we’ve lost all or any influence we may have thought we had to change this world of ours before we chuck off that mortal coil, ’til eventually all we have left are memories of what might have been. For me, all I want to do now is to dip in and out of web sites. Really don’t want to change the world - That’s for Grandson Harry - just want to be happy.
I didn’t know what I wanted to write but started and then broke off for tea and the news. Tea was good (home made Chicken fried rice since you ask) but the news was bad,bad,bad. I was watching what is happening in Syria and the Bombing of Homs and asking the question, "Why is the Syrian Army bombing their own people?" Don’t give me the ’Obeying Orders’ stuff. I would no more bomb Manchester, Wales, Scotland than I would bomb my own family.... disgraceful, disgusting state of affairs. Why do we pay into that waste of space organisation called United Nations if we are not United in the condemnation of genoicide?
I’m probably on the wrong thread to be doing my Victor Meldrew but F’k’n’ hell who listens anymore?
