I have known George since I was 15 years old, I ‘m 40 now. I was inexperienced and angry. I made a lot of mistakes and suffered the consequences for most of them. George took me under his wing and I have learned so much from him, how to behave, how to avoid fights, how to control my temper.

I love George like he is my dad. In fact he helped me so much when my dad died of cancer it seems ironic.

Just over a year ago, George was diagnosed with cancer. After many treatments, injections,tablets and pain, the cancer has won. My friend George is going away soon and I am going to miss him.

Cancer hurts everyone.


Cryptic Message From The Milkman July 4, 2008

Under todays milk delivery I found a note from the milkman. I have read it several times but have decided it must be cryptic like a crossword. See if you understand it.

Dear customer,

In order to maintain the efficiency and allow the business to increase, it will become necessary for certain delivery days for milk to be dropped.

In the next few weeks, Wednesday’s milk will be delivered on Tuesdays. This will involve extra milk being delivered on Tuesdays.

Also, to allow me to visit my son in Cornwall, every 4th Saturday will be delivered on Friday, on these occasions Wednesday’s milk will be as normal. Newspaper customers will still receive papers as normal.

There will be a trial of this next week, with no milk deliveries on Tuesday next week, and extra milk will be delivered on Monday.

Thank you again for your custom

What do you make of it?

Do High Petrol Prices Mean the Horse & Cart May Make A Comeback June 6, 2008

I was looking for some public domain images today and came across some World War II posters. Most were quite entertaining to read (Although at the time they were taken very seriously), and made me glad that we are not suffering food shortages and rationing. Not yet anyway.

The poster below made me wonder if we will end up like this again with the price of petrol the way it is. Here in the UK, petrol is currently £1.18 a litre ($2.32) and it is madness. In the USA it is only about $4 a gallon which seems a little unfair on the British really.

Maybe we are destined to go back to the horse and cart, at least carrots and hay are still affordable.

Have you been following the latest series of Britain’s got talent?

If you answered no, you have missed some cracking entertainment with original acts such as signature and Kate and Gin wowing the crowds. I have to say I was more than a little surprised at Kate and Gin getting through when put up against the singer¬†Dean….. I can’t remember his surname. He was very good but do you not think people are getting a bit bored with singers taking all the TV airtime?

Joseph, Oliver, Nancy…. Tom, Dick, Harry…. why doesn’t Lloyd Webber pay for his own auditions and do it in private instead of making the public endure it. I know some of you will adore the musical shows but they are getting a bit too much. I’m not sure if I can stand a full week of the Britain’s got Talent judges. Piers Morgan, Amanda Holden and Simon Cowell.

My wife however will be riveted to the TV all week… No change there then

Signature audition can be seen below
