Blog for December

Well Howdy-doody folks, I always think the blog for December is a bit of a let-down. We have had the fun of the build-up to Christmas, we have been through Christmas itself and New Year. We then enter the doldrums.

But not Mrs Barret’s boy! I won’t be posting a blog for January so you will have to read February’s blog to find out what I got up to (Ooh matron!) so stay tuned.

However this month, I rationed myself to just a couple of assignments, three days in Ebbw Vale and two days in Dawlish. Whilst in Dawlish I was staying in a “Hotel” where I was the only resident, not even any staff. I’ve had this before and can’t say I really enjoy the experience.

I don’t believe in that tosh about giving to charity instead of sending Christmas cards, I give to charity every month by standing order and I still send cards. I’m also very careful about the charities that I do donate to. There are too many “Executives” with £200k a year salaries living like parasites off many well-known household names. I also only give to organisations that deliver within the UK and keep their nose out of politics.

The other thing that gets my goat and is kind of linked to Christmas, is this stupid American idea of replacing BC and AD with BCE and ACE (Before Christian Era and After Christian Era). Why do they come up with brainless shit like this (I might need to take a blood pressure tablet in a minute). But really! Why? My own theory is that the US suffers the same fate as the UK – about half the population are normal, regular, hard-working people and the other half are gormless, loony, do-gooding left-over hippies that work in media.

If you are a berk who promotes this drivel, is the idea of the BCE/ACE to appease other religions as I suspect?  If so, let me give you a nickel’s worth of free advice – those other religions don’t give a flying f@^k what you call it. They have their own calendar anyway.

Not only that, if Sharia Law comes in, all infidels will be put to the sword anyway. Hippies and gays will be top of the pile so all that fawning will have been for naught. I shall probably sit there with my djellaba on doing my knitting while watching the glorious sword of Islam doing its noble work.

And those stupid councils that have refused to put up Christmas lights for fear of offending other religions ought to get satellite TV (not sappy Sky/Disney either) so they can see all the Arab stations showing pictures and images of Santa and events in a stable. I have respect for all religions around the world. The Arab nations don’t shy away from it and in fact Jesus is mentioned as a prophet in the Quran. What is more, I certainly don’t expect to have to hide my religion in a Christian country.

Not only that, if you had half a frigging brain and a smattering of history you would realise that Christmas and the festival of Sol is both an ancient pagan and Egyptian rite that goes far beyond Christian roots anyway so you don’t have to censor these naughty, embarrassing “Christian” images. Ethnic groups are not as stupid as the hippies and do-gooders think. I reckon most of the flower children that put themselves forward for councils must have dropped some bad acid during the 1970’s that addled their brains. The other alternative was they were bleeding cracked anyway.

My “Person of Merit” this month is my Commanding Officer and partner, Joanne Barrett, who has always supported me, had faith in me, was prepared to wait for me and did not just want me because she had to have a husband, any husband. She wanted me. I was lucky to get you.

I’m getting near the end of this report now, so be excellent to each other. Don’t be a sap and if you don’t like it don’t be afraid to say “No, I don’t want to do that”. I certainly didn’t say it enough in the past. Stupidly, I didn’t say things because I didn’t want to upset people. It took me a while to realise that I probably hurt more people by avoiding the truth.

The other thing I didn’t say enough was “You’re a nice person, I admire you”. As Brits we have a certain reservation, which is a shame. It prevents us from paying odd/random compliments, and I do still owe quite a few of these.

With regard to “Tosspot” or “Prat” of the month – if you see me making a doll that looks similar to you then be concerned.

Anyway, I’m sure that over the next month or so I will have succeeded in blowing up or buggering up something, so I will report as appropriate at the end of February. But please remember this: a man (or woman) who has never made a mistake - has never done anything. Successful people make loads of errors, but they get up, start again and learn by their mistakes. Never surrender.

As we are now approaching January, I will take this opportunity to wish you all a Healthy and Happy New Year. 

Catch you on the flip side.

December is actually my most favorite month because of Christmas. I am a big fan of Christmas celebrations because of the joy and peace the reason of the season gives to us. Let us all remember that the Lord has been born to save us from death so we need to celebrate His birth. Anyway, the reason why I have mentioned this is because I would like all of the people that might read this know that the month of December is a month that is full of exciting reasons to give and receive. You have just made me realized how I should still continue to see this month differently and as a blessing as well.
