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  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
