Dead Shark Syndrome

So life continues with its fair share of highs and lows.  When you get into your fifties you can easily suffer a little bit from “dead shark syndrome” – walking around with the dead lifeless eyes of a shark.  There are few surprises at this age and most of the …

Cooperation

Nothing makes me happier than when The Consul helps out a lesser mortal in making this blog better.  Writing a blog takes a lot more time and effort than most people realize, and even if it is drivel, it is our drivel!  So when you see things like this:it fills …

“I’d Give Her One”

I’m sure most women are offended by the grunted male comment for women that are attractive: “I’d give her one.”  But I’m not sure why.  Surely it is much better than being in the other category where you wouldn’t want to give her one?  I just think it shows how …

We Were Happy Then

This photo was taken over thirty years ago.  We were young, happy, and did not have a care in the world.  I know I’ll never be 25 again, but I do remember that year of fun, alcohol and care free existence.  Good times for sure.  I do hope one day …

Cor Baby That’s Really Free!

One of the artists I saw five times in the UK, culminating with meeting him in person in the Union at Leeds, was the amazing and unique John Otway!  Otway is 100% the type of act you need to see live.  I saw him four times in London at various pubs …

These Boots Were Made For Walking

One of the things I have said for almost forty years is that money doesn’t buy you happiness – just more expensive things that you already have. Case in point is when I first came to Texas 28 years ago I bought my first pair of cowboy boats. They were …

Make it 20 Minutes!

I’m not sure if we are allowed to call them “babes” anymore, but here is another perfect video compilation from those great guys at Movie Hotties.  If these aren’t some of the hottest women on the planet, I don’t know who are.  Enjoy!

And The Tears Kept On Flowing …

I have lived 55 years to read these words: Tearjerkers One of the things that keeps any blog going is friendly competition.  Although I think that The Consul runs rings around me, I do try, however lamely, to impress him.  It is obvious I post more about cleavage and he posts more …

The Top Rank Ballroom

If you’ve been watching this blog closely you’ll notice from time to time I refer to The Top Rank Ballroom – this is before I heard Derek & Clive talking about with an ant sucking his left nipple.  I grew up just outside of Brighton, Sussex and the Top Rank …

Top Ten Punk Slow Songs

Now I know how successful my Top Ten Punk lists have been so it’s time for a new one which is less associated with Punk Music – the Slow Song.  I’m not sure if these can really be considered Punk Songs – or if there is even such a thing …

New Boots + Panties

So although The Consul is complaining things have been a bit dry here: So what is it with this dry January shit? some of us have a private sector job without all the cushy long holidays of the public sector.  So After I have collected my thoughts and reading: These …

Perfection

So as pointed out here I was lucky to have both of my kids home for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  My son was hoping to reproduce our Thanksgiving shenanigans but I was just pleased to see him.  Of course my daughter, god bless her, brought her own shot glasses and the …

Christmas 2017

I think it is safe to say that although this may not have been a great year for the country or the world, for me and my family it was pretty much perfect. With the exception of the over indulgence under the Christmas Tree, I could not ask for more. …

Missing Posts

So one of the downsides with YouTube is that from time to time videos just disappear and leave a blank screen.  This happened recently with this video: So I quickly rushed out to find a replacement, and I think this will work Jimmy:   Nice one Kate.

So Does Sarah

And just in case there are any worries that I’m taking Rachel as my girl, we know she is still The Consul’s, and Sarah Shahi is still my main girl.  Very hard not to put Sarah on a pedestal.  Beautiful, funny, sexy and talented.  And don’t forget her new show, Reverie, …

Rachel Still Has It

Given that I’ve been in a nostalgic mood tonight I thought we’d see how Rachel is fairing.  This photo is from last year, and I think I can safely say that Rachel is looking is beautiful as ever.  I might be getting older, but not so much with the rutting …

Popularity

I thought I’d check in with Google to see how we’re doing since firing up the site again earlier this year.  Firstly this is no 2013 – in those days  we were really cranking,  but we have a few visitors that are not in Texas or England so clearly some …
