You may not even know this but as Wilko News we have been here since time immemorial and yes in hard copy.
Wait for this, youngest son was at Disneyland, Paris and eldest son was in the RAF!!
Wilko News was a monthly hard copy newsletter to keep everybody in the family in touch with the goings on of the others and yes it did have a wonderful full colour calendar free, every month!!
Ok what shall we do in the here and now then as Facebook has taken most of the communication problems away? As well as creating a few, I might add!!
I think a weekly update with quotes, maybe little vids and mainly other people's pics from the world wide webby thing, along with some quirkiness (but of course!) and links to navigate around the world outside our very own little bubble!!
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.Aldous Huxley
Two related, we'll call them 'work quirks' which I want to tell you about.... First, the swallow, the bird as opposed to anything else!!
The swallow battles all the elements and flies over 2 thousand miles with its family to return to a nest it may have made up to four years ago, halfway across a continent, a truly wonderful story of true courage in the bird world and hats off to all swallows for doing that!!
However after this incredible journey, how is it that each and every one of them then struggle to fly in a straight line down a 6 foot wide corridor without having a close encounter with a human being!!
The second is to do with the humans that I work around!! These are the cleverest men and women in the entire world they cure sick animals, rebuild animals that have been injured, all have letters after their name, are Doctors and professors of everything - animal connected - work to cure diseases in zoo animals, speak around the world on subjects that you and I have never heard of and did I mention can't tell plastic from paper or glass from plastic when it comes to recycling!!
This is a picture of the Royal Princess in Liverpool last week.
She is the 13th largest cruise ship in the world, which is quite impressive.
Next weekend in Southampton we shall see Britannia which is,
by a mere few inches and a couple of tons, 12th largest cruise ship in the world!
Queen Mary 2 is in Liverpool Sunday/Monday as part of Cunard's 175th anniversary.
Queen Mary 2 is 9th largest cruise ship in the world.
