Thanks for popping in. It’s my birthday today. 64 years old. Blimey! How did that happen?! One minute you’re getting a bus down from Manchester University to an Anti-National Front rally in Hyde Park in the 1970’s; the next you’re living in Nürnberg, witnessing the demolition of the Iron Curtain in 1989 – and before you know it, you’re 64 and looking for the Anti-Nazi bus again. Forty-five years later, and we’re still doing the same dance. Bigots and Dictators. The circle of Life, eh. That’s it, I guess. If you hang around long enough, things keep revolving, don’t they. The good and the bad.
Quote for the day?
We were watching David Attenborough’s latest Series on the British Isles yesterday evening. What a legend and a gentleman he is! 96 years old!! He has brought it back home for his final hurrah. Fabulous photograpy, beautiful. Wild Isles, it’s called. There is some controversy around a sixth episode he filmed, which apparently is too close to the knuckle regarding the destruction of our nature here on the home front. But it has been filmed, and I’m sure it will be available for viewing somewhere soon. Let’s be honest friends. We KNOW we are destroying our country, we know man is pillaging the earth globally; Sir Attenborough just wants to give us a bird’s eye view. And if anyone can, HE can. Perhaps in hopes of motivating us to find a protest bus.
Tell you who else was spellbound by the programme…
You should have seen Erik glued to the box when he saw his buddy Reynard the fox.
And he even sidled up like a fox when the birds appeared!
It was fascinating to watch the cat go from hanging out, lounging in front of the log fire, to SUPER ALERT, like a miniature Bengal Tiger!
Anyway. Time to kick back and chill. Have a good evening.
