Well there are a number of ways of being woken up, some more objectionable then others. But a mighty thunderstorm counts as a good awakening I think. I've always loved wild weather and last night was pretty spectacular. Even the house teenager woke up. Imagine that! Who knew he even acknowledged the world before lunchtime? Anyway today will be steamy I think so this blog is being typed in the garden as the cooler hours are appreciated. By the time we get to ARF
we may well be glowing slightly.
And we'll start with some rocking tunes from 1959! Juke Box Jury opens on TV, Harold MacMillan wins the General Election and travelling from Watford to Rugby got even more exciting with the opening of the first stretch of the M1. And a book was published which my dad had on his shelves and I was never allowed to see-'The Lore and Language of Schoolchildren'. Much later, I discovered it was full of the sort of rhymes he would rather I didn't know but which I would quite liked to have known. I wouldn't have recited them in front of granny, honest. There's nothing over 2'20" so choose away...

    Good Morning All

    Dashing out to the dentist this morning (just a check-up thankfully) so no chance of tune choosing, unless the blog is late. I've tweeted a couple of songs just in case.

    RR - just jesting, RR. Some parts of South Yorkshire are indeed mighty fine. My sister lives in Sheffield so occasionally we get to sample the delights of one of England's youngest counties. I do think that there was a historic neatness about the pre 1974 set up f the three ridings (given that in the Old Norse it relates to a third) Sentimental, I hear you say? Guilty as charged!

    Playing soldiers: I was in the TA. I broke my leg on exercise (jumping over fene and landing badly) and got carted off the training area to A & E.

    Morning all....

    So pleased Rory McIlroy won The Open! Pleased too for his dad who, when Rory was 15-years old, bet £100, at 500/1, on his son to win The Open by the time he was 25-years old!!

    I left North Yorkshire in the back of an ambulance in 2005!

    Albeit being transferred from Northallerton to Sheffield having broke my leg very badly! (6 weeks in hospital and 6 months on crutches!)
