10 New Year wishes

Just to round off the blog for this calendar year before it celebrates it’s second birthday on the 3rd January (Have I really been keeping this up for two years? Ye cats) I’d like to post my ten wishes for a happier 2007.

I wish;

First: To actually meet some of my regular commenters and readers in the flesh, just to say hi and maybe set the world to rights over a pint or two.

Second: To be able to “Get a proper job” as so many kind people out on the streets keep encouraging me to do. Thank you for your pleasant exhortations, may I assure you; it’s not for want of trying.

Third: To be able to complete a Manuscript that a reputable publisher feels confident enough to take on as a commercial proposition. Please, I really, really need the money.

Fourth: For a revelation to come to all Managers, both high and low, that not everything, in fact not very much at all worth quantifying, will fit on a fucking spreadsheet.

Fifth: For the current crop of UK politicians to wake up and realise that the taxpaying public is not a bottomless pit to be plundered at will. Although I’m not going to hold my breath on this one.

Sixth: To see Tony Blair do the ‘perp walk’ on TV over the ‘cash for honours’ scandal. Come on Yates of the Yard! Let’s see you feel his collar!

Seventh: To see Gordon Brown caught with his greasy paws in the public funding till and sent to share a cell with his old mate Tone. Failing that, a shared cell with a nasty sex offending lifer known by the soubriquet ‘Vlad the Impaler’.

Eighth: For the grand centralist EU vision of government to be exposed as a crumbling, cancerous lie and begin its inevitable collapse.

Ninth: For the various immigrant communities around the UK to understand that in order to live on this overcrowded little island, they’re going to have to get used to a bit more give and take. This means no more demands for holy wars and murders in their cause. Whatever that turns out to be.

Tenth: Failing most of the above, for me and my family to find a way of making a decent regular living in a country where regulating everyone’s every single waking moment is not an obsession with the political elite.

Eleventh: (Did I say ten wishes? Okay – I lied.) For all my readers to have a very happy and prosperous New Year.

May you & yours have a better 2007!
And if you are up in North Wales on the occasional day we see sunshine, I would be delighted to buy you a pint. It is very rarely that we have reason to travel down to London, but should it happen I take it you would not be offended if we dropped you an email to arrange a suitable pub meeting?

Believe me, you won't make any significant money out of writing unless you're JK Rowling or Dan Brown.

Happy New Year Bill to thee and thine.

No.4: Managers need their spreadsheets, etc...to insulate them from the reality which us poor sods have to deal with on a daily basis. They'll never give it up.

Cheers, keep up the blogging.

Visualisation exercise:

What does that stash of cash look like?
Has it got a particular scent? How does it feel? What is the exact £ amount?

Have a clear idea? Then it will surely come to you.

Wishing you the happiest and most prosperous of New Year's,

Bina

Tell thy leaders to hear Bacon [Sir Francis that be] on Muck , muck piled up, it blows up, the same goes for money when piled up, it too blows up [Revolting when the two go together]
so all the freebooters [Sir this, Sir that] beware every Century has its historical moment.
Otherwise keep thy council in revenue, and shoppers saving for a rainy day.
