“He was raising money for mental health charities . . . “

Bloody hell!

He could probably end up receiving treatment that he’s funded himself.

Nutter alert!

Fan-tastic !

by NobblySan

Nowt to do with the article, but . . . Is that Ken Livingstone posing as a vicar, on the right?

As an ex-football fan (Liverpool, if you need to know) who has totally lost interest in the revenue-generation farce that masquerades as the national sport, I was genuinely cheered-up on reading this article in today’s Grauniad.

Footy fans often get bad press, but I would wholeheartedly add my support to these lads and lasses. They are not only supporting their community, but shoving the rigid digit right up the greedy fat cat establishment of the game.


Let’s have more of this from other supporters’ groups!

A few days away

by NobblySan

MrsN, the hounds, and myself have just come back from a few days away in North Wales.

Anglesey to be precise.

Or, to be even more preciserer, a small collection of holiday cottages just outside Llangaffo.

It was cracking! We had great weather, and the location of the cottage was perfect, with plenty of space for the dogs to run about.

We would normally take a longer holiday in summer, but what with all the restrictions around at the moment, and the fact that UK accommodation is as rare as rocking horse shit, we were bloody lucky to sneak in on an airbnb booking for these 3 nights.

Last Monday, we climbed up Holyhead Mountain, and then headed over to South Stack lighthouse. I’ve spent lots of time in Anglesey over the years, but never did this particular walk. It was quite spectacular in places, with great views from the top over the island towards Snowdonia in the distance.

If anyone is interested, here are some pics . . .

British Humor is Different

I got this in an email (probably American in origin ?) and thought I’d post it up on Madhatters.

Something for the weekend…and 2020

Pink dropped this song three years ago (right after certain people took office) “as a political protest song and a social commentary on her belief that the government has failed people.” Oh, how times haven’t changed.

Watch the video and try not to get chills, considering….
