The Daily Teaser — 23-4-2014: William Shakespeare

It’s official … 

It’s World Book Night … !

And you know what that mean’s, don’t you?

It means it’s Free Book Time …!


Just so you know, World Book Night’s been going since 2011: the idea is to encourage reading for pleasure.

The charity that organises it has a list of books, each year: and arranges for multiply copies to be given to a horde of Givers — volunteers like me — who hand them out.

Be warned … 

You COULD get lucky … !

The Daily Teaser — 22-4-2014

Hmmm … 

Did I ever tell you that I’m not a football fan … ?

I didn’t … ?

I’m not a football fan.

So you know.

But one can’t live in Britain, today, without being aware of the game: love it or loathe, you can’t actually ignore it.

Or of some of it’s major players.

Manchester United being one of them.

Within the past year or so, the team’s previous manager, Sir Alex Ferguson†, retired: after a very successful, twenty-six year career.   He was replaced by ex-Everton manager, David Moyes.

It’s rumoured that Moyes will be fired — or resign — today: after a rather bad year for the team.

Speaking personally … ?

Speaking personally — and this from a non-fan, I realise — but given that it took Sir Alex, himself, some three years or so to start bringing home the silverware?

Given that, I think it would be a mistake to fire Moyes, rather than given him room to do the same.

Let’s move on, shall we?

The Daily Teaser — 21-4-2014: Henry VIII

 You know, I must admit to having a quiet day, yesterday.

Bar the fact, of course, that it was Easter Sunday.

Which meant a certain nephew of mine … ?

Had a VERY good time hunting for Easter eggs.

Saying that?   Jude being Jude, had more fun with the plastic eggs, and the toy chickens.

In point of fact, I THINK I’ve got a video of him: having a WHALE of a time trying to making the chicks stand up.

Somewhere … !

The Daily Teaser — 20-4-2014

Hmmm … 

Sound’s like I’ve got a provisionally got a busy day, today.

Dinner at Mum’s: which mean’s me and Jude will be creating a certain amount of havoc.   Well, a boy’d gotta have a deranged uncle … !

And hopefully, a couple of friends will be looking in: one to pick up a dictionary, another pair so I can eyeball a computer problem for them.

Busy, busy, busy … !

At least … 

I hope so … !

Either way … ?

Let’s get a move on … !

The Daily Teaser — 19-4-2014: Don’t Tall Me Shirley … !

Ah— HA!

It’s a TRAIN … !

OK, OK … It’s Thomas the Tank Engine … !

And I think we can say my nephew, Jude, had a thoroughly good time at the East Anglia Rail Museum, yesterday.

He certainly enjoy the actual train trip: and very insistent on having another go.

Despite the fact trains done up as Percy and Daisy were there.

I do know this, though: he certainly enjoyed the Punch and Judy show, there.

Which was also the first one his uncle had seen: child abuse, wife-beating, cruelty to crocodiles, police brutality, assaulting a police officer and strings of sausages … ?

Something for everyone, in other words …
