All thoughts on this blog are mine, everyone see’s things differently and that’s how it should be, otherwise it would be a very boring world…
…And if you don’t like it, no one is forcing you to read it.
Hands up if you remember these
Not Christmas but so funny
And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon Englands mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On Englands pleasant pastures seen!….
NO he didn’t!, Well according to this report anyway Naughty monks, well that’s made that hymn quicker to sing.
American scientists have found a way to bred a genetically modified mosquito that can resist malaria infection, the little buggers will still bite but won’t pass on the bug that causes malaria. Yes it will save lives, but should we be messing around like this, think of the food chain reaction. Scary stuff.
Oh yes, at 3 this morning we had a flurry, :) at 5.30 it had turned to rain :( No snowmen today then, so here are someone else’s snowmen for you to look at.
Hidden in theses tins are biscuits, home-made mince pies, (homemade mincemeat recipe from fellow blogger Sandy who kindly sent it me many years ago), and sweeties can you guess which is where? Answers on a post card or in comments if it’s easer. :D
Yes I am now in full Christmas mode, well it is only 35 days away. I have been warming up over the past few weeks, but this morning the weather was dull and had a Christmas feel, so on when the Christmas music and I had a sing-song as I cleaned the windows, plus there’s a chance of snow at the weekend. :D
Do you support the junior doctors call to strike? I for one do, for very selfish reasons. I want to be treated by a doctor that is bright eyed and bushy tailed, not one that is half asleep because they have just worked non stop for 3 days and can’t even remember their own name never mind treat sick people. We should be treating these type of people with more thought and paying them what they are worth, it always seems odd to me that the likes of footballers and actors can demand high wages when all they do is entertain and people who save lives have to fight for a good wage and good working conditions
Some people think Sainsbury’s advert is better than John Lewis, what do you think
It’s man on the moon for me.
By Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air;
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.
Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go;
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all,—
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life’s gall.
Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a large and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain.
45 days to go, and I have been playing, I have made a reindeer
So for the next few weeks I shall be over on my Christmas site come and join me.
and Lewis have done it again in 2011 we had
then in 2012
and now in 2015 another feel good tear jerker
