The Young Wimps

Hey the snow is falling, well if it was rising we would all be in trouble!!

As usual there is talk of schools closing etc etc.

When I went to school in the 1940's and 50's my schools (junior and grammar) never closed once. At senior school I had to cycle 5 miles every day and we were still expected to be on time!

Can you here the violins in the background?

Plus the winters were more severe on average than now

Just showing how tough we were!

Expect it's all to do with 'elf and safety today.

Thought for today:- Are you a toughie or a wimp in life?

Joke for today:- A good way to save water is to dilute it.

On this day:- 30th November

In 1900 Oscar Wilde died aged 46 in poverty.

In 1874 Winston Churchill was born

In 1835 Mark Twain was born.

In 1986 Admiral John Poindexter and Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North were sacked

In 1936 The Crystal Palace burned down
