Let's see. What can we say
Rolling Stones Rolling Stones Rolling Stones Rolling Stones………….
Of course I will have them, thank you very much. No. Don’t throw them in the bin. I have a very good home awaiting them here. Yes. They will be looked after properly. Yes. I will love them and cherish them.
What’s happening here? I here you ask. What’s actually happening is that there is this local radio DJ who is planning on binning his vinyl. He has rolling Stones vinyls amongst the collection. I will gladly take the whole lot from him but I don’t want to appear to be too greedy. But….there are important vinyls there. The Rolling Stones. If he wishes to pass on the whole lot to me I won’t mind. I can trade for other Rolling Stones vinyls from around the world. By the way, for any of you peeps who are unaware, I collect Rolling Stones vinyls and other paraphernalia from all over the world and will gladly take good care of any stuff you might have that you no longer require. Don’t ever forget that. Start looking NOW!!
Not a lot else happening this week. Tonight I have been informed that we, that is my wife and I, are babysitting for a friend of my wife’s. I haven’t babysat since I was a teenager playing Mummy’s and Daddies with a girlfriend from my teenage years. If I can remember back that far it was quite fun, but then again, it was our teenage years. Wahay. Say no more. Somehow, I don’t think tonight will be anything like those days. Then again, who knows!
My sister is looking for a job at the moment. I just happened to be awaiting my wife in the mall today and as I was sitting on one of the lovely comfortable settees that the mall peeps have realised is the right sort of seating to put there rather than those wooden things, my sister appeared from nowhere. (No, she is not a magician with super powers) She informed me of her latest attempts of finding gainful employment. They all sounded promising. Then she told me about this job over in Newtownards. Mmmmmm. Yes. OK. What is the job again? …..Kissogram. OK. Why not. Newtownards is far enough away for people not to recognise you. Even I could do it. After all. I’m sure there must be someone weird enough out there that would just love me to pucker up to them. Females only of course. We discussed the pros and cons of the job. Then she told me that she didn’t apply for it. She just wanted to see my reaction. Imagine, if I wanted a Kissogram girl at my next birthday or something and my sister turns up. I love my sister but not in that way
Whilst writing this gack I have just had an epileptic seizure. Nothing grand. Just a little itsy bitsy teeny weeny one. The type of epilepsy I have is what is called miotonic. The seizures last for a split second. Even a split split second. But it’s enough to make things happen. Most times I am sitting down, like just now. Sometimes I am standing up and as a result I fall down. (hence being plated on one side and having many scars over my head) This is not what it’s all about though. Usually, when I’m sitting down and I have one of these seizures it’s like having an electric shock go through my body. As a result anything near me goes all over the place. If someone is in the room I scare the beejeebers out of them as well, never mind myself. So, just after this one I had to pick up my laptop from the floor. No. Nothing broken there else you wouldn’t be reading this. No, don’t worry. No don’t send Get Well Soon messages. No, I don’t need flowers or grapes. I’m fine now. As I said before, it only lasts a split second.
I’m just sitting here thinking about these vinyls that could be heading my way any day now. Don’t you? If not, why not? You should be feeling happy for me. Maybe our friend from the good ole US of A might be able to help. Maybe not. This month (March that is) is my birthday . Maybe I will be surprised !!! Maybe I will be inundated!!! Maybe I won’t!

Tonight James I will be....
Pete Doherty or Liam Gallagher or……
Yes folks. These were just some of the answers at the quiz the other night in the picture round. I had made up what I thought was a good selection of pics of some famous characters from both the past and the present all taken from odd angles. Just for a bit of fun I added in a pic of yours truly taken some thirty odd years ago. I really laughed when some of the answers placed me as being Liam Gallagher and Pete Doherty. Fame at last.
As far as the rest of the quiz went. It was great. Except for a few things. I was going too fast. I was going too slow. The questions were too hard. The questions were too obscure. The questions were ………….. and so on and so on and so on. It was definitely a good laugh though. A lot of people took it in the spirit it was meant to be. FUN. Some of the teams were just being too competitive.
Anyway. I have been asked to come back next year for a repeat performance. Great. I have already started compiling some questions. Easier/harder/faster/slower ones and I am looking for a pic of me that will make me look like one of the Rolling Stones. If I could manage that then I am 1/5 of the way to forming a look a like band.
For some years now I have been having some bother with my vision. Just recently things seemed to be getting worse. I now know what the problem is. It’s not my vision. It’s my balance. During the day I get bouts of Vertigo. The ground moves. I walk sideways. My head floats. My eyes go all over the place. I know. I’m drunk! That’s what it is. I can now get full without even going to the pub. It also saves me a lot of money. Don’t worry folks. The tablets are going to help me once they take effect. In the meantime I will just fall into the hedges everytime I go out. Mmmmmm Memories of doing that on occasion coming home from the pub pre Vertigo days.
According to my wife and daughter I have loadsa money. Just because I was able to transfer some money from my own personal wee account into our joint savings and current accounts via the computer they both think I have too much money. And winning on the premium bonds didn’t help much either. I tried my hardest, really, but to no avail. If I had loadsa money I would have somebody do this for me. The only reason I have any money is because I gave up my pleasures in life. I don’t smoke any more. I don’t drink any more. I don’t waste money on frivolous things any more. I have become a miser. That’s why I have money. Fagin wouldn’t be in it. It’s no longer Minnie Me. It is now Meanie Me
If anybody has any ideas on how to save any more of my money then please let me know. Other than that. If you want to comment on all or any of the gack above just click on the title above.
Ta Ta For Now

Calm. Calmer. Calmed
One and two and three and four and five and six and seven and eight and nine and ten……….
Okay then. I have calmed down. It took two days but I am now with one. Things are going well for me.
To get back to the story. When I was writing my blog the other day I had subject matter that I had put down. That has all probably changed by now as my brain only works on command. I don’t think I can remember all that was going on two days ago so here goes.
It’s amazing what young medical peeps can do these days. My wife, who has been suffering all her life with spinal problems, was up seeing her consultant / miracle worker the other day. I was there as well to give support. No not that sort of support, the mental kindly support. Anyway. After the surgery that my wife had undergone last year he is now so delighted with her progress that he doesn’t want to see her for another year. After that, he might even discharge her.
Yes peeps, total discharge, after all these years. Fingers crossed baby. Fingers crossed. Toes as well.
Keeping on the topic of the NHS, I am going up to the the hospital this afternoon. Yes, I know itrs a Saturday, but read on. I have been given an appointment for an eye exam. To cut the waiting lista the NHS has taken in an outside party to do the exams. Now this , as I said, is to cut the waiting lists. I have been waiting three and a half years for this appointment.
Well let’s see now sir.Yes….hhhmmmm…er….mmmmm…yes. You should have got your eyes seen to three and a half years ago sir. Before the damage was done. There’s nothing we can do now for you……..DOH!
Let’s wait and see what happens. See being the operative word here.
My medical situation is peaking at the moment for some reason. Today, hospital. Monday, hospital. Tuesday, Doctor. Wednesday, hospital. Sometimes it happens like that. I definitely think that if I was a horse I would shoot me.
A couple of good things in between though. Monday night is bowls night. For a novice like me I seem to be playing much better. It’s either that or all the old dears just fancy the pants off me. After all, the men never seem to tell me how well I’m playing. Strange that!
On Tuesday night there is a Quiz Night being held by one of the other Church groups. This one is all ladies . I have been asked to put together the questions for the the quiz. Also, I have been asked to be Quiz Master. Is it my aftershave? (no, there won’t be any Rolling Stones questions in it)
That’s the first I have mentioned of the Rolling Stones since the last time when. Things seem to be quiet at the moment. Both for the band and for my collecting. I did see Sir Mick presenting an award the other week on tele though. Looking good Mick. Looking good. As for the collection. Recently we have been deciding whether or not to go on a holiday this year. If we are then I need some dosh. So I am saving hard for that. Then again, probably, I will start collecting like billyo. Who knows? It doesn’t mean to say that if you come across any Rolling Stones stuff that you no longer want or need or desire to stop sending it to me. I will gladly give any Rolling Stones orphans a good home. A place to play with all other Rolling Stones. Just mail me through the Bangorlocal.com site and I will get in touch with you.
Listening to the news and watching it on TV down under is having a really bad time. Mickmack, I hope you are OK. Did you raise much at your fundraiser at your local?
While I am writing this I am sitting here in my conservatory listening to the radio. It is the Jonathan Ross Show. The only reason I am listening is because one of his guests is Seasick Steve. I have been listening to his music for some time now and find the man himself very interesting.
I am also looking out into my back garden. I am thinking to myself. If I knock down the garage and extend the kitchen out to the side and then rebuild a split level where the garage was I could end up with a very nice house and also a place (whole room) for my Rolling Stones Collection. Only two things I need to do that. Money and my wifes OK. Sorry, three things. Planning permission. I think out of the three things number 1 and number 3 are the easy ones. It’s nice to dream though.
Got to go now. Get ready for going to hospital etc. Do I take a book or my Nintendo DS? After waiting for three and a half years there is no way I will be seen on time. No way at all.

VERY Mr Angry
