The hazards of fireworks and animals.

We continue to be appalled by the bombing atrocities caused by terrorism and yet every year at the end of November, the UK happily celebrates a failed bomb attempt to blow up the houses of Parliament! The connotations of which I find simply astounding.  What other country would pay homage to a historical terrorist!

BBC Salaries

Hello fellow Sixtyplusurfers.

It's Sunday evening and there's b****r all ont tele, and I feel like a really good rant before I retire to my bed.

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. 

Female presenters including Claudia Winkleman, Mishall…

Dietary Supplients

Hello Sixtyplusurfers

It's bank holiday Monday, and where I am, it's siling it down with rain. The wife reckons I'm bored and before she drags me off to do some food shopping, I'll write to my silver haired friends and see if I can gain a few health benefit tips based upon your personal experience. 

About ten years ago, I developed a clicking knee and someone advised me to take daily glucosamine sulphate, and after a while it worked and my knee was as good as new. I…

Time on my Hands!

I have found that although I had a bit of an aching back I really enjoyed getting out in the sun!
