Wheels of fortune Wheels of fortune We hear much these days about an ageing population and the burden of increased longevity on the state and on society in general. Old, seemingly portrayed as the fault of the individual, who from the state's point of view should have foreseen and planned for hard times ahead. There isn't anyone on earth who isn't going to grow old and ultimately feel the burden and bewilderment that comes with age and retirement. Incomprehensible at first, but like winter it finally arrives. First the feeling of idleness then hopelessness and fMore »
High Jinks.1963 There was scandal in high placesWith Chrissie Keeler on the scene.In fact some thought it went To nearly as high as the queen.An aspiring good time girl Who was seemingly kept handyFor those society occasionsAlong with her friend Mandy.Frequently seen at Clivenden,Lord Astors Country estate,Where she was said to frolicAlong with him and his mates.Information on the scandalWas kept a little patchy But it seemed to involveA Soviet military attache,And our foreign secretaryThe unwise John ProfumoSo, a case of nationMore »

There it sat waiting for Someone to come along and love it again. To turn On the power, heat up the valves (tubes) spin the Disc bringing to life the voice of Michael Holliday (StMore »
The great outdoors The great outdoors Sleeping under the stars the mind is free to mingle With the ancients travelling by aid of shooting stars To a time when a 2am calm met a 3am mistral in a Hurrying, scurrying short-lived atmospheric tango That spoke of the wrath of an angry God The great outdoors can be a scary place after dark A place where the slightest noise is somehow Magnified and the scratching of a mouse becomes The winding of a snake and the legs of a beetle the RasMore »
Poetic Justice iiThere´s a poetic justiceSometimes in this lifeI´m in the kitchen hiding, From the wrath of Dear Wife.Last week stood on stageShe told the world out loud,And to be honest there wasQuite a fair sized crowd,About how I ranted andBecame temper tossedAs I looked around for The things I´d just lost.Now I´m in hiding asShe impatiently looks For a little leather walletOf Crocheting hooks.They´re not lost,You must understand,It´s just that theyre notComing readily to hand.She knows very wellJust the other day More »
