Snowflakes as thick as treacle.

Latest news just in, the snowflake generation are apparently as thick as treacle and don’t blame me for it wasn’t I who said it!

Rather worryingly they seem to think that we fought the French in World War Two rather than the Germans and it lasted until the swinging sixties.

I would have thought that one of the most ingrained pieces of history especially where Great Britain is concerned is that the British fought the Germans in World War Two and the most important fact about this conflict is that WE WON! Furthermore we also won World War One, these facts are often used to balance out the equation whereby we have only managed to win one World Football Cup.

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 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 who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but 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 Amazon.co.uk 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.

  1. Ah, 1966, the good old days!
    Really, I can’t stand football. Don’t even know the rules.

    • I belong to a small but select band of men who absolutely loathe football, so welcome to the club. It always makes me laugh the way people go on about the world cup which we won once and yet we have had numerous Formula One racing World Champions, still each unto their own.
