Who needs a Porche when you've got one of THESE
1. When there's only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn't you.
Golfers 'offered sex while playing a round'
We celebrated St Georges Day Last night with a most excellent meal of Beef Wellington and great company at the Plume. A wonderful meal served in the tradition it was meant. I’m sure in other counties and inner cities whose inhabitants and councils are more politically correct feel that we as a nation should not indulge in patriotism would rather we did not celebrate these national days for fear of upsetting our ethnic minorities (shortly to become majorities) but they can go and screw themselves! We only have 3 Muslims in Hungerford, 2 run the paper shop and the other the Kebab Van and I couldn’t give a toss what they do for Ramadan, as for the other religions – go luck to them. However a rousing chorus of ‘Jerusalem’ at the end I thought was most apprpopriate.
A fantastic Dr Who last night and I only wish that Harriet Jones MP for Flydale North was a real MP as I would vote for her! However a few cracks appeared in last night’s episode which harkened back to the good old days of Whoism eg. I’m sure one of the previous Doctors had a remote control to materialise the Tardis in which case they could have escaped the sealed cabinet room, and how come that Rose was unaware that the Doctor had a phone in the Tardis (albeit a 1970’s Trim phone – nice touch I thought) but she had the number programmed in to her mobile which displayed ‘Tardis calling’ as it rang? And the fact that one can just hack into a Naval computer system, launch a cruise missile at No.10, destroying all the aliens except our heroes goes beyond belief otherwise someone would have done it long ago.
I've added a new blog to my list on the left SOLICITOR SUE This is a new blog belonging to a very good frieng of mine and a well known character in Hungerford, so give it a while to develop, I'm hoping for some intersting stuff concerning local activities here. Good luck with it Sue
Well with no golf for at least another 3 weeks due to my arm injury and no rugby to report on I haven't had much to say this week. I don't intend to get draw in to the election circus except to say I predict that the turn out of voters will be one of the lowest ever, there's just not enough between the major parties to make one enthusiastic.
Can anyone explain to me the phenomenem of the re releases of Elvis Singles. For the last eight weeks RCA have release a different Elvis oldie that has gone straight in to the chart at No.2 except this week where 'the wonder of you' debued at No.4. All the singles drop out of the top 40 in one week, the singles are not on the Radio 1 or 2 playlists and TOTP is not allowed to play Elvis videos, so how or rather who are buting the singles? RCA perhaps? but I can't see the point as, if the tracks are not being played they do not get the royalties, Can someone enlighten me?
Thanks to Steve W. for this: If your having trouble deciding who to vote for in the forthcoming general election then 'WHO SHOULD YOU VOTE FOR' will give you the answer, albeit one that you may not expect, certainly mine and Steve W's were. I would be interested in what Right Girl's out come would be, perhaps she could let me know.

You may have noticed that I have changed the background music from the previous dirge and today's Midi is to compliment the posting below. I did find a midi file of Bohemian Rhapsody but it sounded like it was being played by Fred Ogdon on the Odeon Wurlitzer - Badly, so you've got 'under pressure' Unfortunately one can only use midi files because of the size and there are not many classic rock tunes available and are really designed as polyphonic ring tones for mobiles, However you will be pleased, nay ecstatic to hear that I have found a whole site of classic midi tunes and so therefore if you have any particular or peculiar tastes, please ask and I will see if I can accommodate you.
Well Tiger does it again and wins his 4th Masters Green Jacket and his 9th Major, personally I didn’t think he would do it and thought Chris DiMarco had it in the bag by day 3, but there you go that’s golf for you.
Thank you HRT to a very pleasant evening last night and congrats to JH on his appointment as chairman, I hope he enjoys it as much as I did nearly 10 years ago. By the way John, the way to handle a yard of Ale is to drink it and not to empty it over your head! The Three Swans by the way provided an excellent meal. Thanks to Jerry for being my crutch for the evening as I can't use my stick and I'll even forgive him for abandoned me outside the ladies loo, for some reason he wouldn't come in.
As a result of my fall yesterday Bin and I experienced the NHS at its usual streamlined non-efficiency in the Casualty dept at Swindon’s finest, The Great Western Hospital, which seems to be as reliable as its namesake’s train service.
Well Hocktide was fun, although we didn’t attend the formal lunch this year, our friends were either busy or apathetic about the idea as we have been going for many years. However this seems to have been a trend as I understand numbers were considerably down. We had an alternative ‘Tutti Lunch' in the Plume and the joined all at the Three Swans which I have to say is vastly improved since ownership is back in private hands and reminded me of the old days. All seemed to be in good spirits as one 41 club member decided that his beer would look better on me than inside him and therefore deposited his entire contents over my lap. This meant that I had to sit where I was until it had dried incase people thouht it was of my own doing. I shall have another chance to experience the Swans hospitality tomorrow night as Round Table are holding their AGM there and as I’ve not been to a meeting since the last AGM I thought ought to put in an appearance. Unfortunately I took a fall yesterday, nothing unusual in that with my condition, only this time I really hurt myself and fractured a bone in my right arm, which happens to be my walking stick arm which means I can’t get around unaccompanied for a while so working from home today. Should be interesting when I need to go to the toilet tomorrow night. I suppose I’d better cancel my golf for the weekend and the following six weeks.
The unfortunate thing about this story is that if it were not April 1st most of this would be believable in this country.
