“What’s It All About … Alfie ?


It’s the question I get asked most if the subject of my blog crops up. Well the word “Alfie” isn’t usually part of the quest, although someone did sing that line to me on one occasion. However, it confuses most people when I tell them that it’s “About nothing, but then again about any and … Continue reading “What’s It All About … Alfie ?

Funny old week …


I’m not going to mention Britain leaving the European Union (well maybe a little) as I think it has all been said. All I will say is that I’m very disappointed with the result. I fully expected it to go the other way but as many people keep saying “Democracy has spoken” or words to … Continue reading Funny old week …

Do they not know anything?


A friend reposted something on Facebook today which could not help laughing at. It's not there now, as I deleted from my timeline. It was not something I wanted to see, but basically it showed a great deal of ignorance. The post went like this: There was a picture of the Union Flag (the UK … Continue reading Do they not know anything?

Too stupid for words?


I was scanning my Facebook for anything interesting and I saw this in a comment thread. The thread relates to a meeting held by one of the prospective leaders of the Labour Party. It doesn't matter which prospective leader, but someone had mentioned that there were 'thousands' in attendance. When this was queried, the original … Continue reading Too stupid for words?

Twitter fun !!!!


Tonight I've been part of what I believe is called a "Twitter Storm". The @NHAParty have been trying to draw peoples attention to the privatisation of the NHS. As part of this campaign the created a hashtag '#PublicDuty' and invited people to use this in Tweets in order to get the hashtag trending. Being a … Continue reading Twitter fun !!!!

Bloody fireworks


      One of R***’s problems is noise sensitivity. I understand it occurs with many Autistic people. It is not the volume of the noise, more the pitch or tone. He can have his video and computer at the highest volume level and not bother at all, but there are some types of noise that causes … Continue reading Bloody fireworks

Will it do any good ??????


So Wikipedia is having a 'blackout' in protest at the SOPA/PIPA. Will it make any difference ? Well I don't really think so. Not here in Britain anyway. Two people have mentioned it in the office this morning. One thinks it is about 'getting rid of internet porn' and the other person thought it was because … Continue reading Will it do any good ??????

Fathers day …. and the point is ?


     I really am against Fathers Day as a celebration day. A day that is thrust down everyone's throat. It is in all the newspapers, on the radio, television, internet, although Google has struggled to come up with a iconic logo. It is commercialism at its worst.      There a number of reason why I … Continue reading Fathers day …. and the point is ?

A new era (or any other cliche)


So here we are. A new Government and a 'new' type of politics. For my money, it has been clear from the very start, that Nick would be Dave's stooge, and dance to any tune. It most probably will be different at national level, but Leeds has had a Tory/Lib-Dem coalition for the past few … Continue reading A new era (or any other cliche)

An interesting week ….


   Now the real face of politics will show itself !!! The ‘behind closed doors’ deals will start. All those standards that people voted for, cast aside in the selfish struggle for “power”. Yet again, the public voice of this country will be ignored.    On a more positive note …… Leeds Utd are on … Continue reading An interesting week ….

A new week …. hurrah


   K**** was back at work today. Everyone has missed her, well at least I hope they have. It was good to see her back. All went quite well. No problems with the PDA’s, although I’ve logged 11 for repair, and have only received quotes for 10 of them. I know what will happen.  I’ll … Continue reading A new week …. hurrah
