Hello my peoples, how’s tricks?
I know I haven’t posted for quite a while, and I know you missed me desperately, but to be completely honest I couldn’t be bothered.
However I am back, wiser and smarter than ever.
Things……. Don’t get me wrong I like things, well some things anyway, but life now revolves around things, and not people. You are told that you will be a happier better person if you buy more things that you don’t need. The more expensive the things, the happier you will be!
When you sit back and think about it, it’s nuts, but people don’t have time to do that because they need to work to earn more money to buy more things. So instead of having a great time being with friends and family, people are toiling to buy a new something.
Have a think about that my friends…. if you have the time.

I haven’t written anything for a while so thought I would put pen to paper (or finger to plastic keyboard).
Isn’t ‘Life’ a funny old thing? A couple of negative things have happened to me recently, and it makes you think a little.
First, I damaged my left football boot, and then I dropped my favorite mug, and just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse I lost my pocket money when messing around on the fields with the rest of the Snow Falls Gang.
It made me feel like everything was against me. Punk against the World!
But when you sit back and think about it a little, that’s rubbish. Life is great and you need to get on with it. You could look for the negative in everything and spend the rest of your life being miserable, or you could look for the positive and get on with it, having a cracking time on the way.
As I always say “Life doesn’t stop if you decide you want to get off”.
So , I get to ask for some football boots, save for that mug with the cute minion on it and as for my pocket money, it was worth losing it to be able to play with my friends. Plus I know I will find it the next time I am having a great time with the Gang over at the fields.
Stay positive my peoples, and enjoy the roller coaster of Life.
Catch ya soon!
I haven’t posted about the WC yet, so I thought I would correct that.
What a fantastic celebration of sport and cultural identity. The Olympics is great, but the actual events don’t matter so much as the collective completion, but the World Cup is different. It is this planets sport, and there is but one winner. The champion of the Earth’s favourites sport. The champion of the Earth. Now that is so cooooool.
Who do I fancy, I hear you cry. Well, I have the benefit of watching the first few games, and so I will not be picking Spain or England this time around. Holland are looking good, Brazil could do it unless they get very strong referees, Belgium don’t have enough collective experience, Chile have been fantastic, but their high pressure game will eventually run out of steam. I fancy Argentina, assuming Messi stays fit and continues his progress. And I fancy Germany, because they have the most complete team back to front.
Bring on the next matches. Let us see who will conquer the Earth!
Back with a classic Grouch Marx quote!
“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” – (Grouch Marx, US Comedian 1895-1977)
I think this one is good for me as well!
I am easily satisfied with the very best. – Winston Churchill – British Prime Minister 1874-1965
“Common sense is not so common.”
– Voltaire, Writer & Philosopher 1694-1778
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ― Oscar Wilde, Writer & Poet 1854-1900
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
― Cicero (Roman philosopher 106 bc-46 bc)
Nice words from the old boy. So why don’t you add to your soul with books about me?
Check out the first 2 books in the Snow Falls Gang series. They have got words and pictures, so what’s not to like?
I like this quote as it is simple and spot on!
“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” – Margaret Mead – 1901-1978 – American Cultural Anthropologist.
Given the weather at the moment I thought a rain related quote would be interesting:
“Do not be angry with the rain; it simply does not know how to fall upwards.”
― Vladimir Nabokov ( Russian author 1899-1977)
