A funny old place is Fife whilst England basks in a heat wave I am being subjected to high winds and torrential rain showers. There have been sunny spells but not for a couple of days so I’m going to treat you to a few panoramas of the countryside round about.
I’ve been down to Loch Leven looking for Osprey, not only is this bird conspicuous by it’s absence so are it’s avian friends.
I really hope that summer appears in time for the Olympics. I also hope that as a nation we can get into the spirit of the occasion and welcome both athletes and visitors alike with sunshine and hospitality. I am not optimistic, it seems to me that the terrorists have already won with security forces outnumbering competitors. What ever happened to the stoicism that once ruled here? Ignore the buggers and lets party, nobody lives forever so let us face the threat of Islamic fundamentalists and defeat it by ignoring it.
Immigration officials are threatening disruption, they obviously have a vastly overrated sense of their importance and efficiency. Had I the inclination or desire I can think of a dozen ways of discreet arrival into the UK. Long gone are the days when we had borders. I suspect so long are they gone that they never existed except in the minds of pompous governments and an incompetent band of border officials. Should they decide to withhold their services then upon their return to work they should be detailed to supervise the arrivals and departures at a rain, sleet and windswept swept pier head in Mallaig or somewhere equally dour. They could be put to patrolling remote beaches and cliff tops like the excise men of old….too good for them! I would quite like that job myself.
I’m a touch depressed……………….it’s this bloody weather. Have a good week.
