    Hearing Loss

    I went to an engagement party last night. The disco apart from playing totally crap music was so load it actually hurt my ears, I actually fashioned some ear plugs from a paper napkin to prevent damage to my hearing. I really don't get why the music has to be so loud, it is not just loud its distorted through crap speakers. Before I get the comments about its because I'm an old git, I never have liked music so loud it hurts. My hearing is pretty good for my age, I've lost a bit from the high frequencies but not too bad for my age. One thing I have always had is a bit of difficulty in discerning people talking in a noisy room I don't think its my ears as I've never had a problem or failed a hearing test, perhaps its how my brain processes the sounds?

    Jokes, old or new

    For all you Audi owners having a bad day. A German guy approaches a prostitute. "I vish to buy sex viz you." "OK," says the girl, "I'll charge £80 an hour." " goot, but I must varn you, I am a little kinky." "No problem," she replies cautiously, "I can do a little kinky." So off they go to the girl's flat, where the German produces four large bedsprings and a duck caller. "I vant you to tie ze springs to each of your hans und knees." The girl finds this most odd, but complies, fastening the springs as he had said, to her hands and knees. "Now you vill get on your hans und knees." She duly does this, balancing precariously on the springs. "You vill please blow zis kwacker as I make love to you." She finds it odd, but figures it's harmless (and the guy is paying.) She finds the sex is fantastic, as she is bounced all over the room by the energetic German, all the time honking on the duck caller. The climax is the most sensational that she has ever experienced and it is several minutes before she has enough breath to say: "That was totally amazing, what do you call that position ?" "Ach," says the German .. . . "zat is ze"............." Four-sprung Duck Technique."

    A couple on their honeymoon are just preparing to get into bed together when the wife says to the hubby, "darling I have a confession to make to you, I used to be a hooker."The husband thought for a moment and said, "actually, I find that a bit of a turn on, tell me about it."She replied, "well, my name was Graham and I played for Wigan."

    Hearing Loss

    It is strange isn't it that it is mostly people over 50 years old into HiFi when their hearing is obviously deteriorating. People paying a fortune for equipment, cables, etc trying to squeeze a slight improvement in SQ out of their systems, when its their ears that could be the weakest link. Its a bit like someone with cataracts buying a 4K television.
  5. Not sure if I really like this album, it reminds me a bit of "Stars on 45".

    Youth Crime

    I notice that the government are suggesting that schools and the NHS could be held responsible for not spotting the signs of youth crime, primarily I assume knife crime. I think that the NHS and schools already have enough responsibility and its about time parents took some responsibility for the upbringing of their children. One of my sons is a teacher and the behavior of some of the children at his school is disgraceful. If the school contact the parents they don't want to know and do nothing to control their little darlings.Teachers themselves are powerless to make the kids behave, they don't turn up to detentions and welcome being excluded. Most schools are reluctant to expel kids as it makes the school look bad and to be honest it just passes the problem to someone else. My other son was a police officer until he had enough of the way the police were treated by not only the public but also by the management most of his time was taken dealing with people with mental health problems or addiction he was more like a social worker. One of the main reasons for this was the introduction some years ago of "care in the community" another example of the government passing the buck. My daughter in law is a nurse and to be honest she is over worked already. Apart from having to look after a two year old and cope with night shifts she often gets called back into work because they are short staffed because someone is sick or there just are not enough nurses. Rather than let them get on with it she always goes in even if she is totally worn out. I'd like to see these politicians spend a week working as a nurse, teacher or police officer before they put more and more responsibility on to them.

    That brings back memories. I found such diverse things as crayons, lego and a jam sandwich in my video player when my kids were small. The JVC video player surprisingly lasted 13 years before it finally gave up the fight. They don't make them like that anymore. Pleased you are up an running now!
