After Tuesday night’s terrible display of headbutts, and red cards it looks like it’s good bye to the Fox in the Box,

wasted talent

through injury & temper

I saw him against Blackburn, and he looked really sharp and up for the seaon, but something has gone wrong, and rightly has been transfer listed.

I read he has managed 24 goals in 8 seasons  ( 3 a season !!!! )

For Sheffield Wednesday, thats 5 in 2 years, and 2 red cards. Some defenders score more than that !!

Time to move on Franny , Tuesday nite was out of order. especially to the 2,000 fans that made the journey .


 My folks are down this weekend, J suddenly decides we have to get a picture put up in the lounge,

Never rush a picture putting up job at 9 pm !

 After 3 attempts, and 3 different different types of fixing, I realsie that the expensive frame is nackered in that the donut who made it, drilled the fixing holes in the back at different levels ! hence the slant…    well , little slant after being persuaded with a hammer !

” Welcome (back) to shooting stars ”

great to see a much loved TV programme back on the telly !!

Vic & Bob still are comedy genius, and they have gone back to the no-nonsense ( ? ) format of the earlier series.

 p.s why do women tend not to get this type of comedy ??


Last nite D, decided to try and walk up my legs,

as I was laying down mind !!  thankfully

She  thought it was funny, to see if A) she could without falling off, B) because it was new !

 well it hurt, …   D laughed,

She fell off…….  Luckily I had hold off her !!

The things you do for toddlers. !


Apparently we are getting the fallout today of hurrican bob, bert, ernie, or something … Hurricane Bert & Ernie – Now theres a name !!! hahaha

I’m not one of those people who subscribe to this ” a butterfly flaps its wings in mexico, and a tidal wave breaks on indonesia ( other countries are available ) , or a man farts in south africa, and an old lady falls off her porch rocking chair, in Nevada…..     but I do believe that things happen for a reason,

 However, Britain always seems to get America’s cast off weather, the difference is that America is ready  to cope with it, Britain though …   no chance,

  You know it is going to snow at some point, but the council decide to use the last of the grit the week before..   you know what I mean  !!!  

   If a strong wind blows a few tiles off a house in Skipton , it is usely a freak tornado…   on the news you will see a woman saying , ” I wer’ sat eatin me toast , with a brew, and suddenly there wer an ALLmightY bang, an alf’ me roof came off and landed on me patio ”   kind of thing

 Guess this is part of the great thing about being British….  our ability to cope, or not with things, the blitz spirit!!


I have bought the Arctic Monkeys new album Humbug !

I didn’t really like the 1st album, but the 2nd, was a masterpiece, so I eagerly awaited the new one !, as I knew it would be fairly simular, and mostly produced by Joshau Homme.

 It is a reaaly hard album to describe, only 39 mins + long, I heard it 4 times, and couldn’t describe it ! Then suddenly the tunes started to jump up at me, My Propeller, Crying Lighning, and Cornerstone, are brilliant,

  I do not think the album as a whole will be easy to play live, bar the 3 above songs,

 You can’t compare the album toanything else, once you hear it, it is an arctic monkeys album, but you got to LISTEN to it, no good for background music,

  I enjoy it emensley, and have not got bored of it, ( 10 plays +  ) and no doubt it will be heralded as a milestone in their career, possibly and Ivor Norvello award ? Though not a ‘feel good’ cd, it leaves you laughing, or sometimes feeling you are the last person to leave a working man’s club disco, with only the glitter ball for company ( Secret door )  How’s that for 7.45 am !!!

If you want some “me” time, and want a Quality cd, buy this, it doesn’t dissapoint, just keep listening


I knew it was bank holiday this monday coming,

but I didn’t REALISE it was bank holiday,

I must be the thickest , thick person , in all of thick – dom !!

YYAaaaaaaaaaahhOOOOOO   Monday off !!
