Val at 70

 Valerie Clarke nee Apps will be 70 on November 21st. It doesn’t seem possible the girl I met and started courting (there is old fashioned word) in 1967 has reached this age. To me she is still the young girl I met all those years ago and if you look at the photos you say 70 NO! I can honestly say all the time you still fancy your wife your marriage will be solid and when you get to the time you stop fancying her you most probably do not fancy anything apart from your bed and a bathroom. I asked if I could put some photos on with her in a Bikini and the answer was NO so the other photos were out of the question

Val Present from the Kids

All the family gathered round on Saturday for a meal at Thai Fusion, 14 of us all told, I said I would pay for everything at £25 a head I thought that is not to bad £350 but did get a shock when I was present with a bill for the whole evening a whopping great £610 that made the bar bill £260. Never mind it was a great evening for a special women and an evening not to be forgotten. Any way it is only money who needs to buy food pay electric bills etc.

So as it was her birthday I said Val have a lay in that’s the kind of man I am, waiting a little bit longer for my Breakfast was not a problem

Val my love for is bigger now then when I first met you, mind you so is my stomach

Val lots of love from me and I will start saving for your 80th

Ban the House of Lords

The House of Lords is from a By gone age where the Monarchy and Lords ran the country we now supposedly live in a democratic Country which I dispute see below. The Lords are unelected group of mainly failed politicians, Bishops what right do they have to thwart the will of the people. They represent no one only their own political and selfish interest. Time for the House of Lords to be abolished and be replaced by a second elected chamber and we need to replace the present electoral system

Scotland SNP party got 4.7% of the UK vote and over 59 MP's, UKIP gets 12.6% of the UK vote and gets one MP and the LibDems get 8% of the vote and have 8 MP’s they say we live in a democratic Country? Yet the LibDems have 104 members in the Lords and they say this is a democrocacy

Could this apply to us Brits

Could this apply to us Brits

10 Point List of "Rights" Americans do NOT have...
The following has been attributed to Lewis Napper, a Jackson Mississippi, computer programmer.  He didn't expect his essay -- a tart 10-point list of "rights" Americans do not have -- to become an Internet legend.

'We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional. We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of Non-Rights.'

You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth.  More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteed anything.

You do
n't have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, that means freedom for everyone -- not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion; but the world is full of dummies, and always will be.

You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in public health care.

You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you get the blue juice.

You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

You do not have the right to a job.  All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself a useful citizen.

You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you came from, English is our language. Learn it!


You do not have the right to change our country's history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in God. And you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, get comfortable with it.

Well done Trump

Great article in the Mail I sent a Text to the Lefty James O'Brien on LBC " James you got the Brexit result wrong now you have got the US election result wrong it just shows how you and your ilk have no connection with the ordinary man"

I was right. Trump’s triumph has crushed the lefty luvvies, useless pollsters, multicultural mafia and gender Nazis who refuse to listen to regular people. So, from a Brexiteer, thank you America

Tenerife purchase

A Visitor
I have decided to buy 2 week apartment at the Flamingo Club which has a lot of improvements being made one bed apartments here rent for £1000 a week. By purchasing two weeks peak season I can exchange for 4 weeks off season, which is when I normally holiday. The apartment is great with an excellent view and it is the process of refurbishment as is the whole of the site, a VIP area including a infinity Pool will built with in the next few years and as an owner we will be able to use this area. I can also let friends use one of my 4 weeks obviously at ½ the price. This  was expensive but could increase in value if I wanted to sell and with the amount of Russians buying everything up that will not be difficult.
It interesting that I feel guilty about spending the money and keep thinking what would my mum say? Val and me have been married for 47 years in January and for 25 years of that it has been hard so we value money and never spend beyond our limits old fashioned I know but something our generation has been bought up with. Anyway we discussed it at length and she convinced me it was the way to go anyway it is her birthday on the 21st November where she will reach the big 70 so this is a birthday present.

Back to the holiday still very hot burnt the top of my head hence buying hats. Went to a Japanese restaurant was an excellent meal expensive but worth the money, everything was brought out in small portions and you can watch the chef preparing the food. My friend Russell Dodds passed away 18 months ago and when I ate the Misu Soup it reminded me of the last time we were together at the World Championships in Japan having Sushi with him. He is certainly missed

Not allowed pancakes with Brandy Flamed but is holiday and will not waste a drop

Who can remember this "Interesting BUT Stupid"
