Time travel is possible

 The other night I was magically transported back to 1976, when the sight and sound of the wonderful Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin appeared on the TV, with that lovely melancholic theme tune.

It brought back so many fond memories, a little like the Last of the Summer Wine and Lovejoy theme tunes do.

 


 

 Not sure why, but it somehow reminds me of another theme tune from the Hammer House of Horror, another one guaranteed to bring back memories. And a perusal of the comments below it in Youtube would suggest that many others were suddenly transported back in time also: 

"Saturday with my dad in the 70 s god bless dad x!

"Loved to stay up late and watch this programme, lovely memory of an escapist era"



Scary nights of yore:

Tigers

 I have an asylum seeker cat that could do me serious damage if she chose, I protect her from dogs but if it came down to it, my money would be on Felix,

I hate to think what a twenty stone version of Felix would be like. We saw one at a zoo and it roared at us, and that was enough.

The real face of WOKE

 

Wokesters called 'killer' white supremacist until he turned out to be Syrian

IT was just a few days ago that snowflakes were blaming white supremacy for the deadly Colorado shooting which took the lives of 10 innocent people.

 

 As soon as the alleged terrorist's name was revealed as Ahmed, the narrative shifted from the threat of "white supremacy" to that of more general "gun control." Woke liberals failed to construct a forced political narrative again in order to exploit a tragedy for their own benefit. But not for want of trying - and it's high time that we began to call out this repulsive behaviour.

 Woke leftists immediately jumped to politicise the tragic Colorado shooting to push their political narrative, only for it all to fall apart when it was revealed that the alleged shooter is a Syrian immigrant who happens to be Muslim.

What was even more shocking is that these wokiests were blaming white supremacy while knowing the 10 victims were white and not knowing anything else about the killer.

Before the facts became clear some leftist political commentators saw a seemingly light-skinned male and made statements about white supremacy.

Travels in China : A wooden temple made in 1013 with no nails..

 A buddhist temple near Ningbo, named Baoguo Si, apparently constructed in 1013 without the use of any metal such as nails or screws, all jointed.

In my opinion, this is what happens when you claim to have invented everything from tartan to gunpowder, but forgot about Wicks and B and Q.

As a culture renowned for using those useless implements called chopsticks, it probably explains why they missed custard as well, you should see Mrs Chin trying to eat a fried egg with them, a sight to behold....

Dire Straits live for £2 ?

 It was the punk era and I saw a band called Dire Straits were playing Hitchin College, and it cost the princely sum of £2 for a ticket. I considered it and thought, Nah probably just another punk band and walked on by....

Not a nice bloke in the past but plays great guitar

 The problem with Blackmore, he was bullied as a teenager by Gene Vincent who who he played backing for, and it seems never forgot it....a friend of mine was drummer for their support band on the Burn tour over America and had not a good word to say about him. in fact quite a few bad words which  I will not repeat but ces la vie talent trumps all...in the long run... which is all that matters really
