It’s a new year and therefore I am making sweeping changes to my life, well that may be a slight exaggeration I am in fact doing nothing more than rearranging my blogs and websites, starting with this one.
When I first wrote this site some many years ago it was exactly what it said on the tin, it was a blog about my shock at the difference between life in the country and life in the town.
For example when in town and one ventures forth to the pub it can be fairly late, whereas in the country especially in the winter if you leave it too late by the time you get there it may well be closed.
Elder flower, don’t get me started on this subject, just scroll down the list of subjects and review my wonderful blog on the subject. https://lordjoewells.wordpress.com/2012/05/15/im-getting-hints-of-elderflower/
This is the sort of change I am putting into practice, this site will revert, hopefully to subjects more closely related to life in the country, although as I have been here for quite a few years now I’m finding it harder to find subjects on which to blog as I quite like the place now.
Luckily I happen to have one handy which concerns country matters and the exploits of the local farmers and I suspect some of you who live in the country may have experienced what I am talking about. Massive housing developments on farmland.
Everywhere you go all you can see is massive housing developments taking place on what was once farmland, it’s come to the point that if a building worker bends down revealing the crack of his arse someone applies for planning permission for a small block of flats in his trousers.
I have become a NIMBY, I don’t want the country to become the town, where drivers push their way into the road and stop the traffic with their car as a means of turning right. I much prefer the old fashioned way it used to be when I first arrived in the country where everyone waited for a gap in the traffic before emerging. The more gentlemanly way of: “After you Claud.” “No after you Cecil.” seemed to work well and as they say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
Just to simplify things, this blog is for matters relating to the country.
I have a new blog which I shall use purely for my book news and new releases which is called Joe’s book page the link to which is; https://joesbookpage.wordpress.com/blog/
The link to my other blog called Joe Wells of whom it has been said which covers anything but books and country matters is; https://www.joewellsofwhomithasbeensaid.com/
There, hopefully that should make perfect sense, as they say in the advertisement, “simples” I’m off to do some bird watching.
