Seeing this in the U.K. “Daily Mail” this morning (during my customary read of the paper while drinking my first cup of coffee) invoked multiple emotions.
I felt DREADFUL for ‘poor’ Ian (though ‘poor’ is somehow not a word that can really be associated with this very human legend). I like Ian. Always have. Saw quite a bit of him, in England, 1974 – 1989, especially since I used to go and watch Somerset play (albeit mainly to see Viv Richards). Ian, cut to the chase, like Princess Diana, is a good person. That he can tear up when a young South African scores his maiden century — against England to boot — shows his humanity. So this is rather sad.
That said, in Ian’s case, I am sure it is not working because he has WORN IT OUT. The “Daily Mail” talks about his infamous affair that came to light in 2001. And implies that that was IT! OK. Yep. SMILE. I also think that Ian, before he bothers with anymore of this ‘stuff’ should get himself a young crumpet — something that he will have no problem, whatsoever. That might do miracles for THE MAN — and he is indeed up there, worthy of that appalation.
I had NEVER heard of this ‘Linear Shockwave Therapy‘ — not that I have, as yet, had to go looking. ‘Vigore‘, ‘Renova‘ etc. in front that terms appears to refer to the MAKER of the electronics as opposed to the actual name of the therapy.
And from what I can see this, like Viagra, is JUST a blood flow increasing mechanism. That will help you get an erection — but that is it. And there is a huge difference. Just getting an erection (though always a great start) doesn’t guarantee that you will have an orgasm and hence be sated.
I have talked about THIS, at length, as item #61 in “Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia”.

This is beyond the pale. This is beyond stupid and unacceptable. This is even going “Way Below The Belt” to regions that could even embarrass Drumpf, if that was at all possible.
As you must know I am far from a prude. Prudes don’t write books about orgasms, notify the world of orgasm-related holidays and promote female toplessness. But even I have limits and this has crossed the line.
I was never a fawning Diana fan and her carrying ons towards her untimely end bothered me. And I, as you can see here, have never been able to see Prince Harry (in print or the media) without being reminded, starkly, of Diana’s onetime lover, James Hewitt. I actually do think that he was born on the wrong side of the blanket and a such should not be considered in the succession line for our GLORIOUS throne. All that said, I, like billion others around the globe respected her for her humanity, charitable work and her commitment to numerous good causes.
This story is puerile at best. Very unbecoming. Practical jokes by a government official. This story has so many incongruities.
I gave this some thought this morning. I am not an out-and-out expert in this area. But I think TREASON should cover this since it is a disgusting affront to the Royal Family.
This has to be dealt with it. This goes beyond freedom of speech. Ken Wharfe, obviously, is shameless.

Well the weather forecasts for Saturday, August 13, 2016 FINALLY came to pass. The thunderstorms they promised, having held back for most of the day and evening, came rolling in with a vengeance around 8:15pm. So it was a good thing they postponed both the Alton fireworks (for ‘Old Home Week’) and ‘Annie and the Orphans‘.
It was quite the storm. One lightning and thunder burst was so sudden and so close that I actually thought that I had been HIT while seated at my PC! Yep, thought the whole PC and I had gone up in flames. There was a blinding flash. But when I looked around all the lights were on. I thought I was running on my UPS — but no. The power did not go down. Didn’t even flicker. But out of an abundance of caution I turned off my PC. Teischan who had gone to sleep just bit earlier was up and about woken by the crash. Braxton wasn’t happy either. He came upstairs to be with us. He is a baby at heart.
About 15 minutes later, around 8:40 (or so) I turned back on my PC and noticed that MetroCast was down. I called. Got a recorded message that there was a service failure in my area.
Luckily the TDS Internet service I have ‘downstairs’ was fine. So I put Teischan to bed. Made myself a light dinner of fruit and yogurt and sat back and watched, with some dismay, India beating the West Indies, yet again, this being the 3rd 2016 Test. I then came up around 11:40 and Metrocast was up.
Can’t really complain. That was one heck of a storm. I was prepared for Metrocast to be down till Monday!
So I am thankful … THANKS Metrocast.
