AT MY AGE …

… it probably isn’t that unusual that I think that, oh never mind ….

People are NOT disappointing. Each and everyone has a unique view of the world to which they are entitled and even if this view appears to be completely bonkers with very little relation to the real world let them be. Oh my [...]

AS THE YEARS DRIFT BY

As we pass into yet another year I thought I’d offer some words of comfort to my younger avid readers.
I can honestly say that as the years go by things get better. Let me explain.
Today I actually feel exactly the same as I did when I was 18 … if I was nursing a [...]

BLINKERED? MOI?

I’m quite concerned about some of the middle-aged people that I know.

It’s been one year since I last tasted tobacco.
I’m yet to be convinced that the benefits outweigh the drawbacks as I sit here surrounded by e-cigarettes with my arms, legs and forehead covered in nicotine patches. There are truths and lies within this sentence -#interestingpsychologicaltest
