All about All and Sundry

Can’t tell you what the wevver is doing this Sunday because there is more than a touch of Keats (without the mellow fruitfulness bit) at the Castle this morn.

Having a day orf from putting coloured stuff on the walls, ceilings, me and the floors, didn’t wake up until 9.30 of the am, had some brekky, did a bit of tidying up, changed the duvet cover (with not a lot of help from his Maj) had a shower and am now sitting in front of the TV (after hearing the result of the Japanese GP before the morons at Auntie actually showed the highlights of the bleedin race) a bit more than miffed. 

So I thought I would explain to those that don’t seem to get the idea of this Piss Poor Blog and the so called thinking behind it. 

During my years (1951 to date) I have put up with one King, one Queen, and twelve different Prime Monsters; and to be honest sod all has changed, we are no better orf (yes we have more ‘things’), some of us are warmer in the cold bits, we have internal combustion vehicles that move us about (when we can afford to put go juice in them), we are going to retire at an older age with smaller pensions, and our NHS is on the verge of privatisation; very few of us have more money, and the elite have everything-as usual.

After “M” was taken I used to write for a “medical” blog where I vented what is left of my spleen against various no-mates medics, the Dept of Elf, the GMC, the Government of the hour and anybody else that I could think of.

Then I became more than a tad disillusioned with having a vent because although it made me feel better it produced sod all results, so All and Sundry was born which looks at the nicer side of life, a bit of a laugh, or a giggle sometimes a belly laugh and occasionally all three resulting in a follow through. 

For those that are looking for a reasoned, logical, well punctuated, precise blog-look elsewhere because that isn’t what you are going to get here.

Most of the posts (apart from the first one or two items) are not there to tell everyone how bad life is-we already know that, there are millions of other blogs out there that will put you on Fluoxetine; the “news” published here is slanted toward getting away from the Pointless Politicians, the sorry state of Blighty and the World, the endless banging on about “inherited deficits” and the aging population.

All and Sundry has a peep at the dafter side of human existence, the Numptys, the Cupid Stunts, the gormless, the hopeless and the just plain stupid. 

So there we are, all are welcome at All and Sundry, anyone can comment, I read them all but do not publish “anonymous” ones, so if you want to be published join this blog, but if there is any hint of self advertising it will go into the junk pile, and if you want to have a go-fine but there will be consequences.
Life is far too short (I know) to take it more than a whimsy seriously, no matter how many crusades, rants, and campaigns are fired about the Blogosphere (and well done to them) very little will make a difference, there are a few things that produce a very, very small improvement to a very, very few people, but overall “they” have got their way for centuries and “they will continue to do so.

So if you are reading this while snuggled up under the duvet with a nice cup of coffee, scroll dahn to other posts, enjoy, laugh, but most of all forget about “Real Life” for a while...

It is and I think that not taking "them" too seriously is worth doing. A grain or two of sand in the wheels, a snigger at their pretentious nonsense - it all helps and maybe it all adds up.

We couldn't do it before the web came along and maybe, very slowly, things will have to change because now "they" must surely have a faint idea that we do in fact laugh at them and hardly ever take them at their own estimation.

And a jolly fine blog it is too :-)

I know I am a bit tardy in commenting of late (I am slow in commenting everywhere). Life has got a bit in the way of late but hopefully that will change soon!

As to the weather, there have been two days of sun and no rain where I live. That must be a first this year!!

AK-good point, but maybe "they" actually have to care what we think?

CherryPie-Ta very much, real life seems to be taking over doesn't it:)
