ABig Learning Curve

I would have liked to display this book on one of those clever things with thambnails that you click on but I haven't got a clue how to do it, so this will have to do. This is a book which, as the title suggests, I learned a lot. Some I pages I like and some I am really not keen on at all but I guess that's what learning is all about.

6 O'clock News

What on earth are the BBC up to with the Six O'clock News?

Intead of being informed in a an unemotional and impartial way the news of this country and the world, we are subjected to watching two or (when and expert is introduced)three or people having what amount private converations. These people either smirk or or use a terrible false gravitas to deliver the "news"."Well, Natasha"....."yes, george"...."what is the reaction Tom, Dick or Harry?" . "special reports" (the answer to this last is usually so obvious a child would know the answer) The two, plastic, "news" readers stand in artificial poses, in artificial settings while they dispense trivia and why does someone have to be flown to Scotland, Washington, Timbuctoo to deliver a few lines?? Presumably it is a the tax payers expense? i.e. MINE

I think I'll get my news from the Internet from now on, or the checkout at Sainsbury' will have more relevance.

Water shortage???

I have just returned from two weeks in Cyprus, in those two weeks we had no rain, in fact, they are not expecting to have any rain now until late October.
When we left they were giving the swimming pool its daily refresh and the man down the road was cleaning his car with a pressure hose.
When we left Gatwick two weeks ago it was raining, when we arrived back it pouring down.

Perhaps the managers of the english water companies should take a holiday in Cyprus!!!!
