My Mum who passed recently would have loved to have been around today as her memories of this day 75 years ago were quite vivid. For her and many more today is a day of personal triumphs and for those of us who came later a day of family history coming to life. My mums brothers returned home safely and a little girls knew her life was going to be one unthreatened by rationing and potential death from above....we are going to celebrate with a big bonfire in her memory today....it was a victory both large and small.

Lockdown gives everybody time to indulge, watch TV, eat, drink, grow veggies ...whatever takes your fancy. We have been doing all the fore mentioned plus playing and writing lots of music. As a reminder of my past my sister dug out an original Ellery bop t shirt...35 years old, somebody knows how to do their washing properly.

I'm bored and annoyed with all the coronavirus hysteria already, yes I know its very serious but we will cope and we will get past this and much quicker if people keep their heads. This site is pretty good for information without extra added zombie apocalypse crap.

Honda Jazz, Fiat 500, Micra, Yaris, Hyundai i10....clown cars all of them! My life is blighted by a constant stream of clown cars all seemingly incapable of speeds greater than 25 mph regardless of road conditions. These abominable excuses for automobiles are driven by people who loathe driving and would much rather be pedalling childrens toys (bikes) except they are afraid of the weather etc and in the female case not able to do hair or apply makeup whilst motoring along at the frightening velocity they seem to believe they are doing.....clown cars are not cars....get off the road, buses were made for you and your soul crushing driving habits! aaaaah, that feels better.

Stir it up Sunday today, a welcome relief from this years election madness. Spices, nuts, currants, raisins, breadcrumbs, flour, candied peel and lots more....plus lotsa booze! now that's a pudding. Which when topped off by my childrens wishes means we are looking to a great Christmas.

I pay tax, quite a decent amount, I've always paid and while not happy about it I'll continue to pay at the current level. The tax plans just unveiled in the Labour manifesto means potential devastation to the future plans I have for my family as tax rises and appropriation take their toll. I have no wish to pay a single extra penny towards the malcontent turds that make up the majority of labour voters. We have enough safety nets in place here to help all members of society and I don't know why Govt should pander to the minority who can never be anything other than the spongers they are as opposed to those of us who work and produce. By labour measures that makes me heartless and an enemy of the people ( where have we heard that before?)…..so says the adherents of the worlds most murderous political philosophy...communism.

My beloved Mother, Mary Agnes Parry passed away last week in her sleep surrounded by her family in as she wished her own home, as good a passing as one could wish for I hope. This is not the place to mourn and mourn I do but I did want to mention the cause of her Passing. She was diagnosed with Alzheimers 4 years ago at 81 but had in fact been suffering for perhaps 3-4 years previously. A once determined, smart, powerful and incredibly independent Woman was rapidly reduced to a person completely relying on the help of others just as much as a new born depends on its parents. The NHS in our area is pretty good and I could not fault the help we received from all concerned but even so the crushing effect on my Mother and all of us around her was immense. I'd just like people to know that Alz more than most diseases blights both the sufferer and their family, taking away all freedoms and most of lifes daily joys. I don't wish to rant but the increase in Alz needs more attention from both the public and the Govt.....Alz steals away everything from your loved one and spares no feelings. Sleep well Mum you are free now and always in our hearts. Jamie.
