Very Sad....



Having spent much of the day doing this little jobs that mean so much, putting the hanging edge of the curtains back on the hook, dusting "cough," cleaning the loo ugh, and making soup, reading Jeremy Bowen's 'Arab Uprising,' and 'With the 1/5th Essex in the East,' books,  however I did not do these all at the same time, I failed to get enough time to rant about something.  This is sad.
I could have got annoyed when I noted some were desiring the removal of Gary Locke from the role as manager of the Heart of Midlothian but I controlled myself.  With no cash, no players, indeed three senior players now injured, no possibility of replacements as there is no cash these numpties cry for the manager to be removed and a 'big name' to take over!  The stupidity of the Hearts fan knows no bounds!  It's like those folk that are told there are no cakes left and say "I'll have two!" What do they do for brains?
Instead of decapitating them I went back to my work, my books, but mostly my books!  
If you want me I am either in Egypt as the revolution is stalling or half way up the ridge next to Hill 60 in Suvla, keep your head down when you call!

If grandfather hadn't injured himself in Egypt thus missing the Gallipoli campaign and in consequence meeting my grandmother I suspect I would not be here - at least, not in my present form.

I would hesitate to take a straw poll of those I have encountered aince birth as to whether that would or not have been a Good Thing.

I'm starting to feel a bit sad when I DO rant. I'm spending my life in a frenzy of ranting, in my quiet little way. I'm getting so ranty about Iain Duncan Smith, for instance, blaming everyone for his own unbelievable profligacy in wasting millions and millions of taxpayers' money in his pursuit of those evil poor people who... er.... waste taxpayers' money. And then he tries to shift the blame on to other people.

I spent some of my morning doing similar to what you described...minus the soup-making; but I am going to make a quiche in a little while.

And, yes...we did get a storm last night and the rain lingered through the night. I woke up to a very misty morning, more dense than that which you pictured in your previous post. And the mist hung low and remained until around 10 am. More storms are predicted for later today or into tonight.

Wash your wooden spoon, my dear...you're going to need it, I'm sure! ;)

Fly, I think you're a good thing....I may not have expressed that well...

Jenny, A rant re IDS will ALWAYS be appreciated by all!

Lee, Wooden spoon...? I use that only on the soup....

Carol, Come to where Lee is offering storms and you say the sun is shining? Someone is lying here. Not that I can tell who as the fog blinds me....
