Blog for December

Hello Peeps, here is my blog update for December. Hopefully, I shall be a little more organised this year and having a few days in the office over Christmas has certainly helped me to catch up with jobs I have been putting off for a while and having a general sort out.
I hope you noted my use of “Christmas” and not “Holidays”, I don’t believe in that sort of PC nonsense. I have no objection to any other religious festival, in fact I find them all very interesting and deserving of maximum respect, but in these parts, we celebrate Christmas.
As usual, I wasn’t very impressed with the offerings on national television this Christmas but I suppose if you are into cookery it must have been a blast. I’m also getting a bit cheesed off with all those scrounging adverts for charities. I give to charity, I give monthly to charity and give to the tin-rattlers if it’s for charity at home. But it’s beginning to feel like a bit of a charity overload at the moment and I’m wondering if there shouldn’t be some sort of legislation to limit exactly how much “Charity” is pushed in our faces.
I do like a ghost story at Christmas, and there were quite a few on Christmas Eve, for instance “The Signalman” was on and you really do need to sit down with a few mince pies and a bottle of sherry (pale cream of course) for maximum enjoyment. One of my favourite ghost reads is “The Dead Sexton”, if I could read and listen to music at the same time I would play my favourite carol “In the Bleak Midwinter” as an accompaniment.
I’ve got my new year planner up on the office wall now and already fleshed out with jobs for January and February, I also like to see the holidays clearly marked up and I think that is one of the main attractions of self-employment – I can have whatever I want off, when I want it.
One of my colleagues and fellow Electrical Engineer (Dennis Latimer) is even more obsessed with his craft than me and has been producing fantastic animations of electrical engineering conditions and equipment in operation. I am truly grateful to you Dennis, and anyone that attends any training hosted by Dennis or myself will benefit from these.
I understand we have now passed the winter equinox wotsits and are now heading into true winter. I can only say bloody hurry up and get it over and done with. I hate this time of year. I can’t get out in the garden, can’t go out on my motorbike, it’s dark and bloody dreary. It’s a good job I’ve got a 4x4 with a nice big heater to see me through. I can’t see much evidence of global warming. Roll on May for our first trip to Spain.
This month (January) I have training in Somerset, Suffolk, London and even a gig with Eurotunnel! That list also looks likely to grow as I have other customers wanting to get in this month as well.
I have been asked by one of the cruise lines to prepare a series of lectures on “Electricity” (can’t say too much about the content for fear of spies) so may have some news on that in future reports.
As mentioned above, I hope the relentless TV charity campaigns don’t kill the golden goose of the great British public. We have seen far too many cases of “Charity” executives taking home massive salaries. They then trot out the crap “We need to pay top money for top people” – Bullshit! If those people were so keen they would give their time for nothing. Or how about some of those “celebrities” on those relentless adverts giving up a bit of time?
While I’m at it with regard to executives, is it just me or are all the mainstream parties in the UK just a complete bunch of cardboard cut-outs? I don’t think any of the parties give a toss about what the common people want. But there again what would I know, I’m just a middle-aged white guy.
I’m beginning to think we would be better off if we franchised UK Government out and Tesco could run the country for three years then hand over to Sainsbury’s etc. You might laugh, but I bet they’d make a better job of it than any of the current options.
Well rant over, better go and take a Ramipril and a rub down with a copy of “the Sporting Life”.
Good luck and God bless to all my readers. I really do hope you all have a fantastic New Year.

These photographs are taking with the immense side and endeavor to give the colossal sight of this bike and you should get 7dollaressay.com review for the best material. I know loads of the all-inclusive community end up crazy when they see this kind of significant bike and it is my hankering to get it. The condition is looking so well.
