I prefer this pirate (I actually saw that production. As well as Tim Curry as the Pirate King, the performance I saw also had Pamela Stephenson as Mabel, George Cole as the Major General, Bonnie Langford as Kate and Michael Praed as Frederick)

Today is World Gratitude Day.

So, thank you to everyone who has contributed to making the Ship the place that so many of us gain so much from. Everyone who has contributed to the discussions, the games, the creative silliness. Even those who posted the stuff we all disagree with, allowing us to hone our arguments for what we do believe in.

It is almost two years since Miss M, my granddaughter was diagnosed with ALL, acute leukaemia. Still on chemo and will be for a while. However doctors are happy with the way things are going.


Today she turns 11 and will have a small party at a park this afternoon. She offers you a disposable cup which she has filled with multi coloured layers of different flavoured jelly. A very sweet tooth. She thanks you for prayers, as do her dad and I.

I have always liked wine but for a long time I did not like beer. I think this was a memory o 6:00 pm closing when I was a child. Drinkers would spill out of the pub and the place would stink of spilt beer.

Then my adult sons introduced me to boutique beers down here. Now I am a fan of the good stuff.

I still can't stand any beer (lager, cider, ale, bitter, stout, etc). The smell of it is repulsive and the taste abominable. [Projectile] Some wines are OK, but I hate the dry whites. What's the point of a drink that dries your mouth out like it's got sand in it?

Give me port or mead any day.

According to my paper today is the International Day of Older Persons, so I suppose that might include me as a 66 year old.

Happy International Day of Older Persons [what a cumbersome title] to all who fit the criteria. I think I'll think of it as Old Fogies Day as it gives me more of an excuse to irascible - not that I've ever needed one being sweetness and light personified.

[Cool]

According to Google this is "Teacher's Day".

Yes, really. If you scroll over the Google doodle, you get a message saying "Teacher's Day 2015" (my bold).

I wonder which one of the x million teachers in the world is the one to be honoured this year?

You'd imagine an organisation the size of Google could afford to employ someone who understands the use of the apostrophe.
[/pedant alert]

However, assuming that it's not directed at one specific teacher, a great big "hello" to all the teachers out there - you're doing a great job and deserve all the recognition you can get.

A friend posted this on FB yesterday. I was at school 2,000 miles away and the headteacher told us about Aberfan at morning assembly next day (which allowing for time differences would be 49 years right now, almost to the minute). Many of us had already heard about it on the radio but to hear about it in the school context was very powerful.
