And Then Past But Present….

Please see this from the good Bishop. From there follow his link to the article.

Having fleeced taxpayers once by offering crazy feed in tariffs to solar power companies, DECC is now going to fleece them once again by offering compensation now the subsidies have been somewhat reined in. Huhne really is stark raving mad isn't he?

To answer his last sentence in depth and at some length; yes.

I should read that there before you read this here as this here may cheer you up a tad after reading that there. Though possibly not.

Another one found on the ol’ drive and saved many years ago. I have mentioned before that any old stuff I run over from my ‘collection’ that I enjoy, I’d stick it on this here Blog so it has a home, or another home, and hopefully brings a little enjoyment to others.

Go ahead, smile, you’re older than you think;

A man feared his wife, Peg, wasn't hearing as well as she used to and he thought that, with advancing years, she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family Doctor to discuss the problem.

The Doctor told him there was a simple, informal test the husband could perform to give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.

“Here's what you do,” said the Doctor, “Stand about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response."

That evening, the wife was in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den. He says to himself, “I'm about 40 feet away, let's see what happens.” Then, in a normal tone, he asks, “Honey, what's for dinner?”

No response.

So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, “Peg, what's for dinner?”

Still no response.

Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, “Honey, what's for dinner?”

Again, nothing.

So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. “Honey, what's for dinner?” Again there is no response.

So he walks right up behind her. “Peg, what's for dinner?”

“Oh for heavens SAKE Frank , for the FIFTH time, CHICKEN!!”

Quote; Nancy Astor.

“I refuse to admit I'm more than fifty-two, even if that does make my sons illegitimate.”
