The falling in todays title is referring to my skydive which I did last Sunday. I have done it now but will not be taking it up as a career. It was worth doing but nothing can prepare you for the jump. This was in tandem I would like to stress. They train you but the feeling when you exit the plane and freefall at 130 mph on a November can not be imagined. So you fall for about 30 secs then the parachute opens (that was a bit of a relief) and you literally dangle miles above the countryside. That bit is enjoyable, it is so quiet and the views were just incredible. And then you land on your bottom in a muddy and freezing field. But hey I have done it. For those who have read me before can I stress I,m 70, it was a present for my birthday. I now have to think of new adventures!
Did you see the suit Harry Styles of one direction wore this week. It was by Gucci and cost over £3000. The material lokked like wall paper or what you would cover a sofa with. As far as I’m concerned he won his bet!
Prince Charles stated this week that drought caused by global warning is a cause of terrorism. He’s away with the fairies, wants to keep his mouth shut!
Apparently university students in the UK pay higher fees than anywhere else in the world. Wonder if that is a deliberate policy so the less well off cant go. As 75% of UK judges went to private schools and 74% went to Oxbridge Universities also 75% of QC’s and 55% of solictors went to the same uni’s it may well be so!
A woman this week tried to kill her husband by putting anti-freeze in his lambrini wine. She got 15 years but he should have got time for drinking that shite!!
Postscript to last week that drinking coffee is good for you, it also helps keep weight off after slimming. But, and there always seems to be a but, it gives you mouth ulcers. Knew it was too good to be true.
The woman terrorist in Brussels this week was NOT a suicide bomber she got her head blown off because she was standing too close to the real suicide bomber. So dont lose your head even though those around you have!
HUMOUR. Hula hoops are not kosher. I read somewhere that the only crisps that are vegetarian are bacon ones. The original Popeye got his strength from rubbing a magic hen. Not quite the same as eating spinach somehow. Croquet was dropped as a Olympic sport after 1900 because only one spectator turned up to watch.
So Lord Coe decided to relinquish his role with Nike worth £100,000 a year and his sports marketing company will not tender any IAAF work. He is now of course President of world athletics. He stated “perception and reality have become horribly mangled” Now I’ve always liked Sebastian Coe. Saw him run when he was only 18 and thought he did brilliantly to win the Olympics for London. However he totally supported the previous President who has now been found to have taken bribes. But he is acting either arrogantly or stupidly and needs all the support he can muster to fight the drug prevalent sport he says he loves.
