I always look forward to that wonderful weekend in March when the clocks go forward, that, along with coverage of the Masters (golf) usually tells me lighter nights and better weather are on the way. Only this year, it’s brought more snow. Global warming? Someone’s taking the proverbial.
I’ve been following with great interest the news from CERN, and specifically the Large Hadron Collider. Everything clearly came together today with the first recorded collisions at seven trillion electron volts. Awesome work guys, God I love physics 🙂
What the hell’s going on? I always look forward to January since it always brings a new series of my favourite (well one of my favourite) programmes, Time Team. Well it’s now nearly April and still no sign. Come on Channel 4, sort it!
January since me last update? Surely not!
Having given myself a good talking to, I’m now back on the case. Aim now is have have more updates, but smaller in size. The idea is that it won’t take as much time.
And today’s topic? The forthcoming election in the UK. No I’m not going to reveal my “colours” since I’ve gone off politics completely over recent years. I’d argue they all morph into one and the same party. What I miss are politicians with conviction who say what they genuinely believe in, and stick to it. I’m talking of the likes of Tony Benn and Maggie Thatcher. Poles apart on the spectrum, but both superb politicians. We need more like them now.
*But*, what must happen is that at least folk should vote. Generations have fought and continue to die for us to be able to place that “X” somewhere. Lord knows I can’t really choose between any of them any more, but I know I’m going to vote. It’s democracy, and I’d rather not have any of the other so called “systems” that exist around the world.
Rant over. Wonder if the Monster Raving Loony Party are standing locally…
