ALL THE BEST AT THE BELLS!

Another year in.  Another year of talking shite with all you daft bastards that contribute your comments to this blog.  As you can see I am in Spain, as most of you knew.  Now I know the pic was taken in October, but I've been sitting in the sun in 20 degrees of heat all afternoon.  I spent yesterday in Cartagena.  Some things really struck me.  Spain is supposed to be on it's arse.  Well, you wouldn't know it.  The streets are spotless, the shops are busy and everyone looks prosperous.  Now, you could argue, that this is because of the money that the EU has pumped in over the years and I wouldn't disagree.  But, other things are also evident.  Spanish people take pride in their country and their society.  Go down any main street in the UK and all you see are rubbish strewn streets, full of young, fat lassies who shag like rabbits and consequently are dragging or pushing in prams, their cheeky, sullen kids, who cost the taxpayer a fortune because they can't keep their knickers on until they get a ring on their finger or at least some commitment from the morons who haven't got the brains to put on a gongy to stop their worthless seed penetrating the sluts.  (How was that for a sentence).

Could it be that the Spanish are in the main still Catholic, if not in religion at least in ideals?  Yes, and I know all about priests shagging weans, I don't know, but I would guess that it's still seen as shameful to have a kid out of wedlock.  Is it because they are still a reasonable young democracy, having lived under Franco for so long?  Anyway, I hope we all have a good and prosperous New Year and as we say in Scotland,

AW THE BEST AT THE BELLS AND LANG MAY YIR LUM REEK WI ITHER FOWKS COAL!

Happy New Year DL, despite your heathen ways you may be on to something about the Spanish. They do seem to have a certain pride in the way they live which is missing here.

Antonio, me a heathen? Surely not? True, though. It's the only time you see litter over here is where there are a lot of ex-pats.

Happy New Year DL! Morals have nothing to do with religion - they stole it from the Pagans. It is a human thing to know what is right or wrong always has been.

It is the way kids are brought up these days that is the problem. If their parents drag them up they will be just as bad or worst.

Billy, Hi happy New year. You're right in what yo say about religion and morals, however there is definitely a difference here for whatever reason.

Belated Happy New Year to you DL. It's the same here, most of the country was shut down last week but the roads into town were wankered with traffic and the High Street full of mental bastards doing the January Sales. Obviously never heard of the depression or Kredditch Kerunch.

Rosie, happy New Year to you and the old grinch! Glad I'm not in Scotland today with the weather you're getting. I had to phone my neighbour to make sure my house was still standing!
