monkey on a goat on a cup on a tight rope

l hate to think of how many beatings these took before they were trained.
Very clever though.

Petticoat Lane (1903)

This all seems so strange. There are hardly any women about and the men are really keen on flat caps.
Most of the young rascals in the film would have been killed in the First World War.
We have never had it so good.

robbie williams

So Robbie was on stage with Take That last night, even if they didn't sing together. I am mighty suspicious of the fact Robbie is now keener to be involved with them and is all matey with them again, at the same time as his career is dipping, while Take That continue to prosper.
They have no need to take Robbie back on board, as that will overshadow everything they have achieved without him.
Maybe they should recruit Lee Pashley instead, as a laugh. I saw him while sailing the seven seas last month, and he was pretty good at the Robbie stuff, although also a bit too eager to please and be liked (just like Robbie in fact).
Can't believe l am even interested in this - l blame Kerry and Mandy.

more cruise cards

cruise cards

Here's some of the places l have just been to on the Island Cruise. Enjoyed everywhere but Casablanca was probably my favorite place.
A lot of the people on the ship did not get off in Morocco s they were too scared, but it was really good, everything l expected plus a lot of places that were very modern and posh. Pretty much everyone was friendly and helpful, and if you just give a firm "no" to the beggars, they bugger off and annoy someone else.
One thing about the cruise, it turned out we were not all inclusive as we thought, just full board. Therefore got a bill for £380 at the end of the cruise. Have to take that up with the travel agents as we wanted all inclusive and thought that is what we had. It's work money that is paying for it, but we could have been really caught out if we had blown all our money.
I got back at about midnight on Friday night, then had to deal with a Bonfire night party at our place on Saturday night. Luckily it was a pretty good night, even if it did piss it down (welcome back to England!). Still got some fireworks left, so they can be used at Christmas.
Back to work tomorrow afternoon, so l will have to make the most of today (by going to the pub to see Joeseph).
It's a hard life. More crap to follow.
