Beautiful spring weather during the weekend just gone. Today, Monday it is cold and pouring with rain. In fact they have promised snow tomorrow but I think we are too far south for that. Famous last words. I have been writing more articles to add to my website www.whoisjohnbeaumont.com Hopefully they will be of interest to people. (if not animals??) Stupid statement.
I had a wry laugh yesterday when I read that Gordon Brown was starting his election campaign in Nottingham. Why? Well because Mr (actually I believe it is Dr as he has a PhD in history) has chosen to start his campaign in the same city where another famous person started his campaign. Yep King Charles 1st raised his standard at the start of the English Civil War in Nottingham and we all know how that ended!! Ironic especially when you know that Gordon has a degree in history!! Still perhaps he subconsciously knows he will lose or perhaps he wants to!!
Actually I am fed up with the election all ready and it is only just starting. Surely every sane person must know what style of leadership they want after 4/5 years of any government? Yet the floating voters have the final say when most of us know which party we will vote for after looking at the results of the current government. Either you think they have done a good job or not.
Anyrate:- Thought for today:- Be thankful for what you have and equally thankful for what you don't have. (Think about it)
Joke for today:- Two flies are playingfootball in a saucer. We had better play better than this next week says one. Why? replies the other. Because we are playing in the cup. Boom boom
