Miscellaneous Bits And Pieces [Dec. 7th, 2012|10:43 am]
Tony Grist
We had a little snow yesterday- a brief fluttery flurry- but it didn't settle. Afterwards there was rain. Right now- that is to say at ten thirty in the morning- the sun is shining. 

Alice Skyped us at breakfast time with Ivy on her knee. Ivy had her tongue sticking out all through the call- almost certainly because she was enjoying the novel sensation of her FIRST TOOTH. Alice wanted to tell us that her mother and partner and Joe and Vicky will/may be there when we drop by the house on Christmas Eve- which'll be jolly. Skype is a wonderful boon for grandparents who live at a distance from their grandchildren.

I am very happy about Alistair Cook's 23rd Test century. What a pity he fell just short of making it a double. The arrest of Max Clifford suggests the Met are serious about investigating historic charges of sex abuse. Clifford is a powerful man (or would like us to think he is) and a more formidable proposition than the light entertainment codgers who have been collared thus far.  On the other hand it remains a scandal that no politician has yet been required to answer questions.

They'd better be praying that they're right about the delightful Max Clifford as he's a litigious sod!

Politician wise the only one to come up in despatches so far is Cyril Smith and they can hardly dig him up although mediaeval and early modern courts might have done so!

What would be great would be if Max turned Queen's Evidence and grassed up all his celebrity mates.

Isn't it odd how we only get to hear about political paedophiles after they're safely dead and buried.

Which reminds me of this....

"At length and with ridiculous display
The politician's corpse is stowed away.
While all of his acquaintance sneered and slanged
I wept- for I had longed to see him hanged."

As to the little verse, the shade of Lord Protector Oliver might fetch a wry smile! :o)

Ivy's old enough to have a first tooth already?
Skype is wonderful.
