Yet again I have missed Friday and will again next week as i’m off to Paris. I have been retired from work for 7 years now but I reckon I’m busier now than I,ve ever been. So when people tell you they are retired it doesn’t necessarily mean they sit around all day reading or watching the TV. It might be exactly the opposite.
Have just seen on Facebook a woman posing with a dead leopard. She calls herself Britanny L. Apparently it was the 9th largest -ever leopard. She must be very proud to have killed such a beautiful creature. I would love to see her turned loose in the same area and the leopards chase her. Oh, sorry I,m not really allowed to say that. Sorry. Ok. I would give her 5 minutes start on the leopards!
Sooty the TV puppet is 70 this year . so is Prince Charles.They are both members of the Magic Circle. I get mixed up between them but I reckon Sooty is the more sensible even though he squirted Charles’s father Prince Phillip with a water pistol. Prince Phillip was not amused but the Queen was!!!
Last word on Serena Williams. You should not talk to ANYONE like she talked to the umpire no matter what. It is called good manners . Clearly she hasn’t got any. And she certainly didn’t think about her 20 year old opponent at the other end! Incidentlly she got fined $17,000 out of her $1.7m prize money. And the umpire, he was paid £375!

Paul McCartney and John Lennon were probably the best and most prolific modern song writers of all time. Paul McCartney has a new CD out called “Egypt Station” If it wasn’t him it wouldn’t sell. trust me, apart from one or two reasonable tacks it is rubbish. In fact he hasn’t produced anything wothwhile for thirty years. Before that was “Ebony and Ivory” with Stevie Wonder,”Silly love Songs”, “Jet,” Band on the Run”. The last three about forty years ago! There were also some other reasonable ones but nothing like the genius songs he produced earlier. Sad really. He has been living on past glories for a long time now.
After this farce of the two Russians who poisoned people in Salisbury claiming they were just tourists and being backed up by Putin we need to take some action. The Russians who have bought large houses in London and have huge ill-gotten gains in British banks should have ggod and money confiscated or transfered back to russian. We all know it is dirty money. But the British Government is frightened to do so as it will hurt house prices and effect banks business. We have taken pathetic sanctions against Russia so far. it’s about time we did somthing that might actually hurt Putin and his cronies!
