  1. Now I am older...

    I am rather disinclined to get hitched again. This little revelation has caused the well-meaning fans-of-the-free-chicken-dinner to emit horrified gasps, and when they’ve finished performing dramatic intakes of air and foppish swoons, they all trot out one predictable question – “Aren’t you afraid of ending up alone?”. The answer I give them is a heart-felt no. A wedding ring is no more guarantee against loneliness than a marshmallow is.
    It seems to me that the majority of people out there ...

  2. Ashes to Ashes

    Today was one of those rare days when, without my express desire to do so, my naturally cynical and questioning mind shut down, and I was left practically slack jawed, marveling at the wonders of humanity. A fairly precocious beginning to my first blog, but this experience did leave me wanting to say more than a simple post would allow. So with your kind permission, allow me to flesh out the narrative.

    Ok...disclaimer first. I am not a 911 operator..Im a carpenter..this work is totally fiction!



    I am currently in the profession of saving lives. I go to work and save freakin' lives. I am a virtual shield; a telephonic Thor, if you like?, to thousands of scared and incompetent people. My weapon of choice isn't a sawed off Winchester or Rick Grimes six-shooter. Nah, man. I'm strapped and riding dirty with a headset, yo.!

  5. the budget

    Okay, I’m going to take a rare and brazen stab at politics. Well, it seems that any ninny is doing so and I see no reason why my lack of jam roly-poly education and economic credentials should hold me back. Since time immemorial governing bodies have pondered how best to fund the roads, drains and armies that serve the good people... and the duck castles that festoon the lakes in their second country piles. Taxation has always been the answer but in varied forms; once upon a somewhen, it was the ...
