Just about all of the big stuff for Christmas has now been bought - just a new TV for the sittingroom to go now, and the cash for that has been set aside. Yes, I am finally moving on past the old glass tube TV set and getting an HD flat screen. Not 3D, of course. As some of you may know by now, I like to trail behind the technology until it reaches a sensible price.
A TV presenter (well known for his brash sense of humour) has caused a stir by suggesting that people who went on strike this week should be shot. People are calling for him to be sacked and he has had to apologise. Seems that a lot of people have forgotten what comedy is! I thought it was hilarious, even though I don't actually like him for a lot of other reasons. Some of these people should listen to what is said on some of the radio comedy shows...
A couple of days ago my younger daughter visited the doctor. Nothing serious. She came back and was ranting about the fact that this highly qualified, highly paid man could not prounounce her name properly. It is not a difficult name, just slightly unusual. I joined in. Our combined rant developed into:
He is a DOCTOR. Surely a DOCTOR should be able to read a person's name!
Unless he got his PhD off the internet. You know, the ones where you send $100 and get a degree?
True. But to do that he would still have to be able to READ!
Have a great weekend!
