Bird Song

Posted in Comment, ideas...., Speakers Corner, squat, Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 26, 2010 by theroguetrooper

Monday evening we get in from the first day of the weeks work, the dog wants a walk, the sun is out and it is cool.  Once all the errands are done we take to the garden to take in the last hour or so of sunshine.  In doing so we miss the early evening news, we enjoy a beer, the dog brings a ball, and the cat skulks off to a corner as the indica sets in.

In the near distance you can hear the last of the rush hour traffic making its way up and down the East Lancs road.  Cars pull up in the street outside, the music is scouse, funky, donk and the odd bit of that stuff they call r’n’b.  People are chattin’ on mobiles in the street outside and dogs are barkin’.  Early evening chaos you might say.

Straight up out of the blue a blackbird breaks into song just over the back there.   Every other sound begins to merge into a distant rumble, the bird song takes over.  We listen; it takes over, just for a minute it takes over.  It’s beautiful.

 It got me thinkin’…. as long as the birds are singing we are still ok, let’s make it count.

“There is no fortune in my cookie”

Di, just recounted a story of writing a letter of complaint to a manufacturer of fortune cookies.  The essence of her letter of complaint was that there was no fortune in her cookie !!!!!  A few days or so later there is a knock at the door from the postman and she has received a complimentary box of fortune cookies.

The moral….

Complain about the foodstuffs and goods you buy. Aways write a letter of compalint or where possible send an email and keep a copy.  I’d say 99% of companies rely on your continued custom and will send you vouchers as a way of apology for a sub-standard product reaching the old supermarket shelf, thereby incurring a cost themselves!!!

Super lets ave it !!!

 Get your complaints flying in to anyone you bought goods or services from lately.  Happy days indeed !!!!!

This is just one little way we create revolution in our everyday lives. 

Nice Mrs B. (Di)
