Its supposed to be spring , in fact it WAS officially this week. but it is still freezing and the plants in my garden are about 2 months behind where they were last year. Easter is next week and apparently we are due more snow on Good Friday. This seems to have been the longest winter i can remember, 5 months and counting!
Noel Gallagher and his brother Liam , of Oasis fame hate each other1 .but a saying Noel said about his brother this week amused me. He said “he’s like a man with a fork in a world of soup” Nice one I thought.
In the UK we have fruit machine which take a stake of £100 per 20 secs. This works out at £18,000 per hour. People are getting into debt using them as they are addictive. the government are going to change the law to only allow £30 every 20 secs., only £5,400 an hour. Why dont they really reduce it to £5 every 20 secs. IT would still be far to high!
What a great story. a man bought a photo off E-bay for £7. Turns out it is a photo of Jesse James, the American outlaw taken in the early 1860’s. It is worth something like £2 million. What great luck!
We British like to even now keep our standards up. Men will not be allowed in at Royal Ascot this year without socks. Quite right too. Shoes without socks are really uncomfortable anyway.
Now we are coming out of Europe we are changing the colour of our passports to blue. Our wonderful prime minister things this is a great statement but most of the population dont care what colour they are! The contract over 10 years is worth £490 million. just to change the colour. But even worse the contract is likely to go to a Dutch -French company. The Home Secretary , Amber Rudd apparently signed off the contract without even knowing who’d won it. How on earth can we allow a foreign country to print our passports. Yes there’s was the cheaper price but if the British company, De La Rue got it they would employ more men who would pay taxes which go into the public purse. Also the foreign company who won the contract have financial problems and arte being partly taken over by the French government. Absolute stupidity!!!!!!!
Facebook owner, Mark Zuckerberg has had a terrible week. His company have been passing on info relating to 50,000,0000 customers without their knowledge. But the worst thing is , beacause the shares in the company have gone down he has lost £5 billion. He is now down to his last £43 billion. You really have to feel sorry for him don’t you?
HUMOUR- Clams can live for 400 years.

This is really useful! A grasshopper becomes more sociable if you stroke its hind legs. But I dont know what it means by – mor sociable.
Palm trees are a type of grass.
Lava lamps were invented by an accountant whose hobby was making underwater nudist films EH?
Finally it wouldn’t be a blog these days without a mention of our Donald. This week he is putting an embargo on Chinese goods and they are doing the same with US goods. He is going to execute all drug dealers, and his son is getting divorced because he has had an affair with a Playboy model. The Trumps have got a great reputation with women have they?
