You have to laugh

Please run Oprah,my retirement funds need another Trump term and the fun of watching the world go even crazier would be an added attraction.

Here comes another one

2017 has had its challenges but it also had its finer moments so I'm hoping that 2018 brings more of the latter for both me and anybody reading this....onwards and upwards!

Family time

Its been a tough old year for my Mum with the usual disabilities of age slowing her and sadly Alzheimers playing its dirty tricks stealing bit by bit her world ,but she is a game old girl and is giving it her best. Consequently 2017 has been very trying and exhausting for all of us here at OTW with plans on hold and energy depleted both physical and emotional and I guess next year will serve up more of the same. But just for a week or two we are immersing ourselves into a family Christmas that for us will celebrate all that is good about family and the for us is everything.

A good attempt at a great Ramones tune by a fine musician and actor, a seasonal cracker!

Old rope

As part of a compilation album, cherry red records are releasing the first single my old band Ellery Bop ever released. As a first effort by a 19 year old me it is not too bad considering I could neither play,sing or write a tune, somewhat of a drawback in a musician I imagine. It means that I get paid a couple of hundred quid for something I would happily have done for free as when I recorded the track I was at uni trying desperately to figure out how never to have a job plus my kids get to laugh....a lot!

Fat Nazis

Things have as of late been a bit hectic and so my blogging has been rather light something I do plan to put right. I have been too busy even to read many of the regular blogs I visit but among the few political ones I read such as zman,worstall,Takimag and powerline I have tried to keep up and comment when so moved. I don't comment often but I occasionally find the racism and anti Semitism in the comments enraging as they for me detract from otherwise educating and amusing conversations that move forward conservative and republican thought and tactics. As result I am usually called a 'snowflake' which if they bothered to check out my blog they would quickly realise was stupid or a Jewish stooge. I'm not bothered about any of this as I know the writers comprise of cheeto eating fat wannabe Nazis or twisted old blokes unhappy with their lot. Me.....healthy wealthy and with great family and friends and as the old joke goes 'saving up to be Jewish!' so if I offend anybody I can only say tough and if you want to find me.....feel free, always happy for a full on conversation.

Rose McGowan

Rose McGowan the self appointed leader of the digital lynch mob cleansing our beloved (not) entertainments business is apparently in a little trouble for drug possession, something she puts down naturally to a conspiracy. I for one couldn't care less what Hollywood lowlifes do to other Hollywood wierdos but I do care about statements like this.......have a great career miss McGowan.

Moving on

Lots of work to do around the various houses this winter if the weather permits as I will start the long selling process next summer so everything needs to be spick and span. It will take quite a while to sell my property as it comprises several houses with outbuildings, land etc so not just a simple sale. The time taken however will give me time to decide if we are going to renovate a new property, self build, move to another part of England or apply for an American EB5 visa, all viable options but some real serious thought needs to go into making what may be the last of my major decisions in life....I hope!

Jeremy Corbyn may be the next Prime Minister, a possibility that fills me with so many emotions I find myself having to devote lots of time and effort starting to plan for the devastation to my life that would ensue. It would be lax and foolish to not plan for the horror that a Labour/communist Govt would inflict on the country and more importantly for me, my family,its finances and future..... so lots of plans to make and much musing here over next few months.

Tap tap tap

A wet autumn means working inside, so the next week or two will be spent chipping away at the back of what will be a garden bench, idle hands and all that.

Stupid people

As America tears itself apart over matters large and small I kind of admire this chap, doing the right think isn't easy sometimes.
