I just came across footage from the Sun newspaper of young people celebrating and dancing in the streets of Liverpool last night.
The first thought when viewing the footage, one has to wonder how this awful virus can spread so rapidly and then when you have viewed the footage there is one of the answers, the other being people mixing in others homes against the regulations.
At first sight I thought this was rather worrying behaviour but then with any luck it will just be natures way of culling the feeble minded, let’s hope they don’t take any of the rest of us with them.
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 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.
I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1
So bloody stupid
Agreed, that’s the understatement of the day!
Selfish and irresponsible.
Allegedly these people are supposed to be intelligent enough to go to University, although personally I have to wonder.
I’m afraid the University students I’ve met haven’t much common sense Joe.
When I was young it was only the top 2% of the very clever people who went to University, now everyone goes.
I left school at 16 with three O levels in 1972. All of my jobs involved number crunching of some description, but my job in the bank as an analyst was the best as it suited my abilities, not my paper qualifications.
I didn’t bother with exams at school as I had been conditioned to know I was going to have to go into the family baking business, it’s only when I was at Polytechnic that I got any qualifications. Having said that I have met plenty of extremely intelligent people who haven’t the common sense to cross the road unaided.
According to them they’ll all be absolutely fine, a bad cold, if that. It’s us older ones who have the problems with Covid not them, therefore it’s us who should be staying indoors, why should they have their freedom curtailed just because of us. That’s their logic.
Plus they’ve all had enough of the government telling them what to do..
If I wrote my true feelings I would probably be arrested and locked away. A sorry state when that is the case!
