Arrival of 'Malware'...
at 18:20 28 May 2020

With the implementation of the new 'Track & Trace' system, am I wrong to anticipate an epidemic of 'Malware Virus' as large as 'Convid19 or am I being more pessimistic than usual ??? (Please open this nice NHS link to give me full access to your bank details)

The Future of Football...
at 11:21 22 May 2020

The more that I read about it, the more I think that the 'game' as we know it now is finished. If the Prem League manage to sort out the huge financial problem that they have (and many will say that is of their own making) that structure may continue to exist but in a much changed form. The funding/finance for the Championship will take away 50% of the clubs. Leagues 1 & 2 will amalgamate on a North/South basis (as it was in the 1950's) but will be semi pro and Non-League will have the status of Sunday League football. I hope that I'm wrong but with the prospect of in excess of 8,ooo lower league players looking for another club in the coming weeks, I'm not over hopeful....Old Person now awaits arrival of 'down arrows'.

Strange Question for a Monday Morning...
at 08:31 11 May 2020

Has anyone on the forum used an 'electronic cat repellent'.... If so (1 Do they work & (2) Does the electronic thingy have any affect on bird-life. My problem is that there is an area of my garden that a number of birds have taken to nesting in. This has been discovered by the local cat population who now regard this as 'fair game'. I would much rather have a family of blackbirds than a two ton ginger tom who doesn't wish my blackbirds a long & happy life....

I've always regarded the 'Thought for the Day' slot on BBC R4 Today prog as a total waste of time. Today's, however, was as powerful piece of radio as was Ian Wright's time on 'Desert Island Discs'. The moral of all this.....If your family members are 102 or 2 years old then cherish them. In these troubles times, no one knows just how long they will be with you (or you with them). If you get a chance to listen to Anne Atkins give her thought for the day then do so. Old Person's Rant over...

Just the most magnificent listen with Ian Wright. It says SO much about the power of being a good teacher. 'Tears to a glass eye'.

Controversal Thought.....
at 15:58 18 Dec 2019

I've just watched the highlights of Fallon Sherrock's win at the PDC Darts. How long will it be before female footballers are playing in league teams. I appreciate the argument about physical strength but long, long ago one of ITFC's most accurate passers of a ball would not live with the current levels of fitness. Jimmy Leadbetter ('Sticks' to many)struggled run BUT could pass a ball over 40 or 50 yards and land it on a sixpence (sorry about the old money). He was the principal architect of Crawford & Phillips goals through that ability. (Awaits arrival of down arrows)

Listening to a journalist from the Guardian On the R4 PM prog, she seemed to suggest that (as milkshake was harmless) it was OK to throw harmless items at politicians as it has been done for many years in the past. As the journo is a supporter of JC (or so I believe) does this mean that it's OK to make him the 'Milky Bar Kid' over the next few days. I really, really hope that this was NOT she was suggesting.
