Share if You Survived Trump in a Pop Star Cabin


My God, not a good month for pop stars in their 60s - another couple of deaths yesterday.

Have you seen those posts on Facebook showing dangerous things we all did as kids (i.e. before they were banned as being too dangerous) and asking you to share them if you survived? Strikes me you wouldn't be able to share them if you didn't survive, and some didn't - which is why they were banned in the first place. Bill doesn't go on about past dangerous activities - be smart - be like Bill...

Talking of banning - should Trump be banned? No! If we were to ban every twonk from coming into the UK, then half of the UK parliament wouldn't be allowed back into the country after their holidays.

For some reason I was looking at past presenters of the Today Programme on Radio 4 and noted Jack De Manio was one of the first. On looking at his Wiki page I noted he won an MC in 1940 and was then cashiered in the field by a Field General Court Martial in '44, but can find no reference on the internet as to why he was cashiered. It certainly did't seem to affect his career so couldn't have been a heinous crime. If anyone can throw a light on this then I'd be grateful.

Colin finished off a few jobs on the new cabin this week - outside patio laid (much to the delight of the boys using the cabin for their new business), kitchen tiled and radiator installed in the bathroom. Very pleased with the result.



Just the cooker to hook up - Hay's dad can do that. Thinking of making a parking space for two cars - and making a separate entrance in the fence on the lane - Colin's next job. If I can get a job pretty soon, then we may even build another cabin in the summer, but not to such a high spec as this one. Seems renting them to businesses has more mileage (and substantially less work) than renting for holiday accommodation.

Is it me, or is the news becoming the most interesting and entertaining programme on TV?

  1. We watch the headlines and then think we would sooner see a repeat of Eggheads.

  2. I think it might be relative to how much telly you watch.
    I should know!

    1. Even the programmes I used to like are no longer interesting and too far-fetched to be believable.

  3. The news has always been the most interesting programme on the telly (ultimate reality TV show?) Although, I do find the BBC news channel tedious; IMO it should be renamed the "BBC weather and stories about the NHS" channel.

    1. Points West is a rehash of the world news and how it applies to the SW - in the most tenuous ways possible.
