Hot Hot Hot!

Hot Hot Hot! We have a mini-heatwave at the moment, and we certainly are not ready for it. In the East Midland of England we are more used to rain and cloud, so hot days nock us for 6. The garden is already looking parched and we are getting used to filling the watering cans again. But the crops are coming on well. What with the rise in bread prices, that will be welcome. It turns out now that there is plenty of wheat in Ukraine, it's just that the Russian navy won't let it leave the port of... Sign in to see full entry.

Horoscopes

I follow 2 or 3 tarot readers on U-tube, but I tend to fall in and out of love with them. To be honest, I only listen to what I want to, and anything I don't like the sound of, I dismiss it. They are supposed to be warnings in all readings, but what I want is happy good news about how much money I'm about to win. So anything telling me the truth does not suit me. I have paid for a couple of professional readings for myself over the years. They were about right, but I'm such a sucker for a good... Sign in to see full entry.

Gas prices!

One of the reasons petrol is so expensive is that this is one of the few ways the government can get any revenue. We owe Trillions in debt and can't pay it back. But that dept in turn goes to pay pension funds. Sadly most of it is banked off-shore. Just watched The Spiders Web on Netflix. Sign in to see full entry.

Running up that Hill I'm pleased to see that the Kate Bush song: Running up that hill is back on the charts. It's all due to Stranger Things on Netflix. I love the idea that the girl used the song to get herself out of that hell. I brought the Album back in the 1980s and it had a big effect on me. Last of the concept albums.

£2 a Litre.

Fuel is so expensive now, it's changing our whole world. When I was a kid if you did not have a car you got on the bus. But it's almost as if that is a swear word now. Once the recession kicks in, fuel will drop in price, as no one will be going anywhere. Most of our fuel price goes into direct taxation and VAT in the UK. In a litre of petrol, it's something like 20p for the actual price of the fuel. I don't know what gas is in the US, but I wonder what people think about electric cars? There...

Boris! A gonna?

I think our beloved leader has finally burnt his boats. There is a vote tonight, which he might win. But it's just a matter of time now. People can forgive him the parties, but they won't forgive him for ruining the economy. Inflation is out of control and people are genuinely frightened for the future. Petrol is so expensive now, it's ruining everyone's life and the supermarkets are getting to the silly stage now. What's to become of us? Sign in to see full entry.

Rain!

Sadly the heavens have opened here in England, and it looks like it will be in for the morning. Saw this on our local FB nostalgia page. This video shop changed our lives. Finally, there was a world outside of the BBC where anyone could make a film. Sure, they were rubbish, but that didn't matter. The future had arrived. Sign in to see full entry.

Stamford 1912 The local town has changed little since this picture was taken. All the little family businesses have long gone, thanks to the supermarkets. I wonder what those people would have thought if they could see our sorry world now? Medical matters have progressed, but the hearts of the people are blacker than ever. The cruelty of an Empire came back to haunt them, but they have learnt little from it. I wonder what people will make of our time 100 years from now? Sign in to see full entry.
