There are many other organisations which regularly receive funding from ourselves, as many regulars will know we are friends with the likes of Clonter opera and the RNCM in Manchester as well as Welsh National and much regular donations throughout the year. Mandy supports the charity for the donkeys Brookes and we regularly fund raise for the British Polio Fellowship. There was a programme on the tv last night about the introduction of the vaccines back in the early 1950s which of course came too late to prevent Mandy getting the disease which is now wiped out in most countries except for the loony lot in Afghanistan and Pakistan who kill the medical workers involved, nice one love your god bet he's got lots of nice things for you when you get to hell.
Anyway a birthday tinged with misgivings for the future after the hell we have gone through over the past few months with the Polish bus drivers, the Scottish police and their legal system. I was going to take it all on the chin which is basically the route I've taken but I've decided to share the good news with all the departments concerned and got a letter to base the news distribution as widely as possible. There are three plane spotters in the fascist state of UAE, remember we had hassle there in February, only one souvenir picture allowed per tourist at the bus station and the souvenir monorail tickets must be handed back after your ride, no surprise there then that three lads are in jail. P
erhaps the bus and aircraft enthusiats should get together with the train fans etc, we could register a new religion something as woolly as church of England yeah that's me and every time we get mistreated we can shout the race chant. I'm suggesting in my letter that Scotland gets a mention on the foreign office advise pages as their laws are now so radically different from the UK, wouldn't it have been good if they were independent, lets hope nice Mr Farage between pints manages to get the English a referendum on whether we want to be independent!
So here's to birthdays, however many you get each year , well Queens get two, no not that sort but you can have two as well, steady now cheeky. Remember where does the funding come for all these ISIS crowd , remember who is our biggest middle east customer for weapons, remember where prince charley boy goes to suck up to them, yes it's that No1 top of the mavericks - SA.
Birthday greeting to those that share the 16th and again thanks for all those may messages of greeting worldwide. PS there are more of the Atlas etc type 1/72 bus models including another trolley making their way out of the east european model collector magazine subscription offers, keep your eye on EBay for those. Our first 2 trips to Finland are going on DVD this week.
