Well, today has definitely been one of those good days, The band have performed again , in glorious sunshine. No prize this time but you cant win them all i guess….The country is still sunny with a long range forecast not to change….So yes, things are good.
This got me thinking back into history for a couple of things…..
- we now live in a ” nanny State ” where we have to tell people that its sunny and almost instantly issue a warning about heat. if this Is the case, then why do most Brits try to go somewhere sunnier in the summer .
- its not just the warnings we get about the heat , cold, rain, etc etc …we have become way to politically correct in our approach http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twYZH_XNqDk for example if one of these gents did what the media say he did , then that was wholly wrong and a sentence should be passed. however, does that mean that the humour that was funny at the time isn’t funny now. Never forget that basic principle of innocent until proven Guilty
- the sad News that Mel Smith has passed away. this reminds me that he was part of the original move from Un PC comedy in the 80’s….one of lifes funny men… . is all of his comedy still deemed Ok to broadcast
Any way, a good session of skating with the Clan and just time to blog a little
