SAD TO SEE HIM GO
You have heard me talk here about my next door neighbour - the straight man who is 6'7" - handsome and bearded and hung like a horse ( don't ask how I know - I just do... ha ha ) and yes, he is straight and while we have a joke and a laugh together and we have seen each other naked on a few occasions back in the summer, I do not - ever - cross those boundaries and never would. We are friends and while tongues waggle and gossip spreads, we are friends and nothing more.
Anyway, he was a really useful friend to have right next door as he is an electrician and brilliant handy man to have around - and as Hammy hall is always in need of some minor something being done - and he was clever on computers as well... it was a deliught :- and he has moved to Spain to see what opportunities open up for him over there, and I send my very best wishes and hope everything goes well for him.
England can be such a hard country to live in and although we have had a very mild winter, it has been very grey and wet - as you all know - and business is down and everyone seems to be saving their money and even his electrical work seemed to dry up over here whereas in Spain it seems there is a ton of work for him within the Ex Pat community ( an English speaking electrician ... worth his weight in gold ) and I wish him well.
Some people locally have found fault and said he won't last 3 months and my answer is to stop being so negative - stop being so half empty - and offer some support. Good luck to him - I hope and pray he makes a huge sucess in Spain and finds himself.
I always state that if it does go belly up and he needs to return here, he is always welcome to stay here as my friend for free until he gets the tennants out of his flat and if that takes 6 months, it's not a problem. Having that lifeline is always a good thing to have available, as if things do go wrong abroad, so many people stick with it and then drown in unhappiness and debt - being afraid to go home with their tail between their legs - rather than head held high for trying.
I wish him well and when he has that massive villa with sun terrace and huge pool, I shall go out and take a free holiday and some R&R.
Good luck Chris, my prayers are with you.
So - remind me once again, what is it that these guys above are guilty of - oh I remember -
sharing the truth of what our governments are up to that they want kept hidden for fear
the people will rise up in absolute horror at what they have been up to and kick them
out of power and make a lot of changes - perhaps.
So, it seems the government has more to hide from the people than they care to let on.
I wonder why ?
TWO GEOLOGISTS WITH BP SAY FRACKING IS NOT GOOD
Had a couple of guests stay recently who worked as geologist with a ' BIG PETROLEUM' company ( hint ) and when I asked them about Fracking they both said much the same thing, that it was not environmentally a good idea as the concept of high pressure water and chemicals being pumped underground was unknown and the damage these chemicals were / would / could do to the water table, the environment was dangerous and unknown and could cause earth quakes and it could be very dangerous to human and animal health. There simply was no evidence to claim it is safe whereas the common sense about the dangers is clear.
This coming from professionals who work in the field , travelling the world working in the oil and gas industry for over 50 years between them.
Interesting that two very seperate geologists both said much the same thing.
