We are born, we live and we die, but not always in that order.

Confused? Yeah so were we when we read this classic line in a village magazine. The line was in a short story written by the new editor of this particular magazine and it caused much mirth amongst the “clever” villagers , try as I may I have been unable to find the whole article as its one for the books, if I do eventually find it I will post it............. So anyway the Pole Polisher  or little man as she was also known was not the sharpest knife in the drawer but she had one quality that the owner of the magazine was interested in.........................She had a Regina (sorry spell check went off line)  so she became the editor..........................enough said.  

So what’s been happening this week in the life of the Ex-Village idiot? ...............To be honest not much, been collecting some info on Daniel Roxo trying to make sense of some challenges that don’t make sense regards his life. It’s really difficult trying to write about someone who is dead and you find conflicting information.  I have been training the whole week and feel like I need to drink a vat of Red Bull. 

Gabby was going to compete in a  Horse show this weekend and  we woke up at 6 so I could take her to the farm to collect Mc Dougal and take him to Wild Olive Stables, Gabby walked him to the stables got him all ready for the day (fed him, groomed him, padded him up for the trip in the horsebox etc etc) only to get hugely disappointed because the horse would not get into the horsebox. Gabby had told Kiara (her instructor) as well as the owner of the horse box that Mc Dougal would only travel with one particular horse , they did not listen and the result is weeks of planning and preparation up in smoke, Gabby as you can imagine was very upset but to her credit accepted that sometimes “Shit happens” and you have to get on with it.  I was very impressed with the way gabby had prepared and organised everything for this show.    

You do not have to be Nostradamus or a Mayan to predict headlines for newspapers when it comes to the kids going back to school as they will always say something like

·         Teachers to Strike     
·         Schools not ready
·         Text books have not arrived
·         3 classes using 1 classroom

This newspaper headline of the Italian ship that capsized is a classic example of how  the editorial  and advertising  staff should talk before they print the paper.  The captain of the ship (an Italian) is being charged with murder abandoning ship and any other book they can throw at him. He should have stayed on the ship till the last person was rescued but being Italian he did what all good Italians do in a time of crisis...................”Run” I came across this Classic Winston Churchill quote about Italian cruise ships.........”Enjoy”
After his retirement he was cruising the Mediterranean on an Italian cruise liner and some Italian journalists asked why an ex British Prime Minister should chose an Italian ship. “There are three things I like about being on an Italian cruise ship said Churchill.First their cuisine is unsurpassed. Second their service is superb. And then, in time of emergency, there is none of this nonsense about women and children first”.
Has been hot and humid this week and we have only had  a few drops of rain so no relief yet. Next week I start week 1 of SAMTRAC, my first time “solo” so a little nervous.
Anyway a short Blog this week. Have a great week next week and remember we have to get past Mondays to get to the next weekend.
