Such a lovely, and irrelevant, picture this. I should indicate I did not take this photograph in case you wondered. It's pre Great War but not sure when. I post it as I have taken no new pics, have no desire to rant tonight, and as usual nothing worth saying. I spent much of the day attempting to fill out the Heart of Midlothian & the Great War site, the replacement for the site that died when the free Yahoo sites died. It has taken years of sloth to finally do something (free) about this. The trouble is the research takes so much time. While I have much of the material further searches involves lots of Google work. Hundreds of sites to look at and most repeat what they took from my old site anyway! Bah!
The news is dominated by a storm in the US, but nothing will be said in the US when the remnants of 'Sandy' hit the west coast of Scotland in a few days time I suppose. The other news remains the media fascination with Jimmy Saville. This man was known to be a problem for years but nothing was done. The problem as Jim Davidson indicates was that so many perverts are in the entertainment business. It is full of broken people hiding behind the image and a Saville and will find friends and be free to indulge themselves unhindered. Some had too much to lose, and no business will expose its own failures in this. Personally I am uninterested, especially as the papers have dozens of stories to tell, many are jumping on the bandwagon, and if money is to be paid out I suspect others will appear with invented sob stories. The less well known perverts will continue to hide in big companies, and if discovered silently moved out.
My tired brain is too knackered to bother unless something really important shows up, the many Nigerian Princes contacting me to offer millions don't count, the usual crop of murder, rape, lies and half truths are just a pain tonight. The TV is full of pap, the radio also, nothing remotely interesting or humerous. Maybe it's the cold weather? I am freezing below my aged ex-army blankets, and I have attempted to keep warm by drinking expensive brandy but the supermarket man threw me out sadly. There is nothing for it but an early night and hopefully an interesting dream. Last night I dreampt I was talking to someone in the hallway while cars drove past us. Quite why I have no idea but there you are.
