Not as good as it used to be…

…could probably be an appropriate new subheading for this website, but hey-ho. I could bore you with all the usual stuff about being time-poor blah blah blah, but you get enough of that on other sites.

However, in the meantime, here are a few things that I’ve been pondering:

  • are standards in education and general knowledge so poor these days that a crew member (in catering) on a ferry between Dover and Dunkerque really doesn’t know where the Netherlands are?
  • is the proliferation of carved pumpkin usage in this country the result of an increased belief in evil spirits associated with an increase in secularism or merely the by-product of the Hallmarkisation of every other day of the year?
