Out In the Cold!

Posted on February 7, 2018 at 13:43 3 Comments

Until recently, I have been somewhat sceptical about online chatting, maybe from a shyness angle, or possibly by just being a tad suspicious about someone's motive  in wanting to chat to a complete stranger.

The publicity surrounding the salaries paid to BBC presenters, artists, and performers, makes my blood boil. There is b****r all ont BBC box, nowadays, compared with days gone by, and I think it is a disgrace what some of the employees are paid, male and female alike.
