The Daily Post.

The Daily Post, or should that be, The Last Post, I sincerely hope not. I have made a comment on the page when I received this tragic news and I re post it here as this may be my last act as a blogger.

I don’t see anyone asking why they are stopping The Daily Post, has there been an explanation as to why it should stop? If I were in any way competent with computer wizzkiddery I would organise a petition, or at the very least, sign one if someone else came up with the idea. Am I correct in assuming there will no longer be the Daily Prompt and if so how on earth will I think of something to write about. To quote the Marx Brothers, “this is an outrage, this means war.” They can’t do this to me, I’m not a young man, I’m mature and set in my ways, I can’t do with things changing will-nilly, without so much as a by your leave. I shall be lost for words, as you can clearly see. Have they given proper thought to this, I don’t want this to be the end of my marriage, but I fear if I don’t have The Daily Post to moan on I will inadvertently turn my attentions to my long suffering wife. If I am forced to moan to my wife there can only be two outcomes, an acrimonious divorce or I shall wake up one morning to find I have been stabbed to death in my sleep. I therefore say to those in charge of this foolish decision, please reconsider, for the sake of my marriage and my health.


About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse. I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase.
