MORE TWO FACED NONSENSE

So I’m listening to the News on the Irish tellybox. Well, it calls it ‘News‘ but there are many other words that would describe it better. One thing that leaps out at the moment is the fear that people in our Government have of calling a ‘spade’ a ‘fucking spade‘. Like for instance there’s a huge increase in the Covid yoke in Donegal. Hardly surprising given the number of young wans out boppin and drinking every night of the week without a mask in sight! Sure what can you expect in the name of God! Anyway the ‘News‘ didn’t say this. They said ‘of course no one blames anyone for this’. ‘It’s all an accident’ and ‘lets throw a heap of money at them to make it better’. Where is all this money coming from? Although when you want votes the next time around there’s an election you think that people will like you more if you just throw money. That’s what’s happening now. Sure this shite is nearly worse than the fucking disease if you ask moi. To get things right we need people who will say what is really what and speak the God dam truth. Do you get these types in Government any more? One wonders. Chat soon.

THE LACK OF WORDPRESS POSTS

So WordPress has joined the ‘let’s change and be modern’ crowd. I am succumbing to layziness because of all the things that I am finding useless at the moment. I think I’ll end up just sitting and doing nothing at all. There is an ad on the local (Eire) telly at the mo for the weather forecast and it shows an unhappy looking little fella. And the big headline is “When it’s too wet for you to go swimming”. But the thing about going swimming is that you get wet anyway! Wet all over in fact. Why do you need it to be dry just before you get wet? My problem is probably expecting people on the telly box to have brains. Meanwhile I’m watching “Ratchett” on the Netflix thing. It’s good, especially if you like weird murders. Although I can only watch two episodes of Ratchett at a time to be honest as I’m not that into weird murders. Meanwhile here in Eire there are loads of young wans going out and having parties with no social distancing or masks at all and the cops don’t do anything to stop them because they are likely to be afraid of hurting young people’s freedom or some shite like that. There was none of that crap when I was young to be honest. Meanwhile I’m staying in and doing the garden. It’s actually turning out quite well to be honest. The Government at the mo is breaking their arse to appear to be reasonable people Finding a soloution is another thing altogether, even though we really need one. Finding soloutions that work is now an almost historical task. Everybody just wants to ‘appear nice‘. In fact ‘niceness’ is the disease of the moment if you ask moi. Though that will last for a while I suppose. Nobody wants to be the one that ‘hurts‘ anyone. Tricky as people are hurt by everything these days. Chat soon.

SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW

So every day I listen to the news in case I might hear something important. I don’t to be honest. Most of what I hear means nothing to moi. For example they are staying that it is a big problem for people not being allowed have more than than 6 people in their homes. I can’t even remember when I had that many people in my home! And I’m sure I’m not the only one! Then there’s this whole story about people complaining about not being able to go out a lot! I hardly ever go out and again I’m not the only one! The concept currently being put across the media is that old people go out all the time with loads of their close friends and have a great aul time! And because you think that you don’t, you probably also think that you are the only one in the world who doesn’t have a rock star life! Life is a funny old thing all the same. The trick is to keep up with your own opinion and do what you feel right about. Sometimes it’s hard to do that when all the ‘Sheboolahs’ keep wittering on about their view on life. It’s not always right. In fact it’s merely what the media demands. The real view is not important. Remember that mes amis. Chat soon.

SO IT’S SUNDAY AGAIN

And I have decided to write a blog and put in a picture. However the layout of this yoke has changed and getting the free picture is difficult. I think they may have taken the option away to be honest with you. Maybe it’s my fault for not buying any of the stuff they keep offering me. Although offering is not quite the word – ‘pushing me into buying’ – would be more appropriate I think! Anyway this is just a few lines of a blog yoke so that I can try and figure out how to get the picture thing going again. That’s all for now – I’ll come back and write a proper one when I have figured this thing out. To be honest I think this whole ‘disease’ yoke is a way of changing how we live. But the people who were deeply into making money are just pushing that agenda except harder. Glad I’m not in the workforce these days! Sonny Jim was hard enough to put up with then – I couldn’t even imagine how he would sort things out now! Some days it’s good to be old. Now is one of them! p.s. So I got the picture – yay! Sure that will do for now. Chat soon.

DOING NOTHING AND EVERYTHING!

So the days go on the way they have always done. Time starts in the morning and ends at night and the next day is the same. This continues until one day you leave your existence in this planet and go somewhere else. This ‘somewhere else’ is beyond our knowledge and we really don’t know anything about it. In fact our existence there is probably way beyond how we think of existence here on the Earth planet. This current shebooba with all it’s change in circumstances has forced us to think more. Except the young wans who would prefer to spend the time drinking alcohol and not thinking at all because it scares the shit out of them. Not that they would say it. They would prefer not to think at all and just say ‘we’re cool’ and ‘we know everything’. But that’s their sheboola I suppose. It is now September. My favourite month of the year to be honest. You have a bit of sun and heat but not too much. You don’t have the freezing thing of Winter yet. You have the joy of the garden. Today’s plan is to cut down some young trees which are trying to sneak in and take over the place. But first a shower, a hair wash and a bit of telly. When you get older you can do what you like. You can do it anytime really. Chat soon.

SEPTEMBER AT LAST!

My favourite month has rolled around again and the weather is perfect.  It’s not to hot and the nights are not too long.  Yesterday I cut the front lawn with the ‘half dead’ lawnmower.  But at least I got it done and it looks adorable.  Next I need to buy the thing that cuts the edges and the thorny yokes.  However as Winter and cooler weather arrives in this part of the world the dreaded thorny yokes will cease growing and I can get rid of most of them!  And hopefully I will manage to make a few more pots of delicious blackberry jam which I enjoy enormously at breakfast each day whilst quietly reading a book.  Meanwhile there is all sorts of hoola boola amongst those who have access to the media about the cost of things and whether the virus yoke exists at all.  They will moot around forever groaning about stuff because they have not yet learnt the joy of sitting still.  I never really thought that I had learnt much in this life but now I know I have garnered a bit.  All those workshops do pay off in the long run.  Working in the garden is a joy beyond joys.  Just start digging the earth and you will realise this.  Meanwhile I have discovered that plain Greek yogurt does not disintegrate in the oven and can be used instead of cheese.  Another day another joy.  Life is truly simple.  It is meant to be.  When you realise that, you have a bit of Heaven for a while.  Chat soon.

AN IMPERFECT BLOG!

At the moment here in Eire the media, television and radio people are all barking at a chap who went to a yoke in Galway.  Unfortunately the yoke had too many people and yer man should not have gone there in the current climate.  Bad man.  And he belongs to a political party which I never supported.  Howevs, the media schoons keep beating him and telling him to resign as a European Commissioner.  They are actually treating him like you would not even treat a savage dog!  The crowd has taken the bait and continue to beat him up every time they open their gobs.  For example the Shoola on the afternoon show on the radio has now spent two days trotting out wans who didn’t visit dying rellies in nursing homes and getting them to give out about him.  e.g.  “Now tell me Mary Bridget, how did you feel when you couldn’t visit your poor dying dad in the nursing home, it must have been shockin distressing for you”.  Yep, two days of this, whippin the country up against yer man.  Yer wan, Mary Toilet who went up to Norn Iron for a huge Ra funeral leads the pack.  She conveniently stepped aside from her own misgivings.  Meanwhile yer man continues to be whipped by all the media.  No one would dare say a good word for him in the current climate.  In fact no one dares say anything against the majority in anything these days if you ask moi.  Meanwhile I’m lying low and doing the garden.  Cutting weeds and cooking pasta in the evening.  Life is actually simple.  The whole getting up and wheezing against people is not always necessary. Some people think it is.  Some people will always wheez because they know no other way of living.  Learn to make a decent pudding before you die.  You will have actually achieved something worthwhile.

SUPPOSING YOU WERE HAPPY

Supposing you were happy and nice during all of this?  Would you act differently?  I suspect that you would.  Perhaps you really want to be a nice person and all that is stopping you is fear.  The trepidation of stepping out of line with all the other hoove bullas.  In some ways, it is basically the worry of others that is keeping us locked in our tiny little places.  For example, the other night I went for a bit of a walk.  As I crossed the road, a man on the other side started shouting at me because I did so.  He said that I only did so out of fear.  Which given how loud and shouty he came across and how narrow the footpaths were – wasn’t entirely false to be honest.  Last night I walked the same route and had a lovely chat with an old man on the other side of the road who was walking his dog.  We both agreed that if one side of the road is free you should take it.  It’s easy to be nice when the person you meet is also kind.  Otherwise it can be sort of fearsome – n’cest pas?  Meanwhile today I started a new book by a proper author – i.e. one who writes well.  I was in Boston in the snow – according to the book – and was completely enthralled when I happened to look out the window and see my cat kill a pigeon and start to eat it.  That is what cats do I am afraid.  Hopefully the foxes will come soon and take the corpse from my back door for the evening meal in their den.  Meanwhile I am going into the garden to pick blackberries to make jam to last me through my winter.  Life goes on in all it’s little ways.

WOULD YEZ ALL SHUT UP

So here is the thing.  The new Government in Eire have put up innovative Cory yokes because it is back and it’s getting worse.  And so what is now happening here is that all the “I have a voice gangs” have risen up with the ‘How dare yez‘.  Which is what happens when anybody says anything, especially the Government.  And the gangs are very loud indeed.  But this is not normal time.  It’s not like the Government had made the yoke in the first place.  One of the things that has huge traction is the over 70s yoke.  Now I’m not there quite yet – nearly though to be honest – but I can’t see the point of the enormous ‘kick up‘.  I haven’t been in a shop since early March and don’t plan to go to one soon to be honest.  I stay at home and watch the telly and the things on Netflix.  Have the odd G&T and a glass of wine with my dinner.  Sinawil.  Not to mention many novels – at least 2 a week get read which take me to other places in another time.  I never thought that all the work and workshops that I did in the past would ever be useful.  But it turns out that they are.  One less whinge bucket in the masses is better than none I suppose.  Oh yes, just wanted to say that despite what the people on the telly advertise as ‘over 70s’ – I do not have a big arse.  In fact I’m slimmer than some of the young wans.  Young wans who do nothing but whinge it would appear.

SO WHY?

Why does my computer need to be upgraded so often?  Answer seems to be ‘keep the guys in upgrades’ in a job.  Why do I read shitty books?  Not sure.  However I am now aware that there is a difference between books which have a decent writing style and those that require flogging stories to the masses in exchange for money.  Yep, I’ve just finished one of the cheap books today – it was interesting enough but the writing was simple and it embraced a story line that doesn’t happen – but sure that will do.  Enough said.  Meanwhile the people who seem to know everything about the Cori yoke are saying that in order to survive you really need to keep distances from each other.  Which I believe to be honest.  But why don’t people do that?  I am sure there are lots of theories.  Well yesterday I walked up to the local shopping centre to off load some bottles into the bottle bank.  The child said a mate went up there at night once and he was attacked and beaten up – which is why I took the day trip.  Anyway when I was coming back there were four schoolgirls covered in makeup spreading over the entire footpath.  As I approached they kept chatting to each other and made no effort to move to let me pass.  So I walked out on the road.  Only to hear their amused remarks.  Manners have also been killed and not just by this yoke.  It gets interesting at this stage.  Chat soon.
