Watched BBC FOURS Reggae Special tonight …

and realized again, how good is that SKA beat sound ?…

Reminded me of the old daze

Me, the BOSS and me old mate Scottie …

we toured Croydon in my white convertible Ford Consul

with the Wine Red leather upholstery

picking up the skirt at the old haunts

dressed in my made-to-measure and £70 hand made brogues … This in 1970 ! …

… Or dressed in my Levis, braces, Docs and original Ben Shermans.

CROYDON SUITE and the TUESDAY and FRIDAY  DISCO Nights,

CRYSTAL PALACE HOTEL, the BULL at Esher,

the PINEAPPLE at Old Kent Road, the amazing TELEGRAPH at Brixton,

tHe TElEGraPH Inn At BRixTOn

There wasThe SHIP at Croydon where I got my nose broken,

Streatham LOCARNO where I took my first real girl friend

and the PURLEY ORCHID which was a bit dated really but had

some very different ladies …

ggg

ggg

… Shame they couldnt find some of the real

skinhead classics on the Reggae Special ~

Max Romeo’s WET DREAM, THEM A LAUGH AND A KI KI KI,

Phillis Dyllon, Toots and the Maytals ~ WATER MELON

– my own personal favourite.

Used to play my 7″ Reggae vinyls till they had holes in, 

on a portable slot record player I bought in London  

near Tottenham Court Road … I never ever saw another

one before or since … Used to visit all the reggae record

shops and listen to the soundz in the booths …

…  One next to CROYDON Station and a brilliant

Reggae shop near BALHAM Station which had nothing

but black customers but was owned by an old white guy

… So many great reggae

songs and so many girls in their

cute mohair suits and their cool cropped hair

with the pull over fringe …

… Themz were the dayze ….

I forgive you Theresa Green, I knew that wasn’t really your name

and Stephanie who slapped my face by the main bar at the Suite …

… I wasn’t three-timing you honest, I think it might have been 4! …

Wept for me for thee for all,

When he was an infant small.

Thou his image ever see.

Heavenly face that smiles on thee.

Smiles on thee on me on all,

Who became an infant small,

Infant smiles are his own smiles,

Heaven and earth to peace beguiles

You that fasten all the triggers
For the others to fire
Then you sit back and watch
While the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansions
While young peoples blood
Flows out of their bodies and is buried in the mud

You’ve thrown the worst fear
That could ever be hurled
The fear to bring children
Into this world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain’t worth the blood that runs in your veins

How much do I know
To talk out of turn?
You might say that I’m young
You might say I’m unlearned
But there’s one thing I know
Though I’m younger than you
Even Jesus would never forgive what you do

THE BOXER

I am just a poor boy
Thoughmy story’s seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest

When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Lie la lie …


Asking only workman’s wages

I come looking for a job
But I get no offers,
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there

Lie la lie …

Then I’m laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone
Going home
Where the New York City winters aren’t bleeding me
Bleeding me, going home

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev’ry glove that layed him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
“I am leaving, I am leaving”
But the fighter still remains

Lie la lie …

sung by Simon and Garfunkel

.. . ‘COLENE’ – POEM REVIEW .. .

.. . I tried to write a poem, raw and straight from the heart – just as a love poem should be Countless people know that numbing, paralysing feeling of being hurt in love That is what I tried to capture Colene the raven haired beauty a gaelic darling who is blissfuly unaware of the damage she does until one day she feels that same raw, heart scrape of unrequited love  Its cold, simple, uncomplicated and oh so painful Awh just shocking !!!

Although his performance this time does not seem glamorous, but still familiar Alessandra Aless-greeting-looking very hot. Decorated attribute short hotpants, mini skirt teasing, jackets, knee-length boots to create an unforgettable impression for his performance.

Not to mention the game of black and white effect makes sexiness Aless increasingly more perfect. This ad campaign is supported by a reliable snapshot photographer Fabio Bartelt, director Matheus Mazzafera style, and makeup Daniel Hernandez.

To show off the collection Bo.Bo, Aless appear with an amazing variety of poses. Starting from standing, sitting, sleeping up to style with a pose on the floor.

Pose the most “hot”, which successfully created Aless is sensual when she appeared in her jacket decorated with shiny hotpants superpendek. Without wearing a bra, poking among Aless breast of his jacket, a little exposed. Plus the face and hair that was neatly increasingly supportive sexy poses.

“Every Fourth Stork is Polish”

Photograph  ©Kuba Przedzienkowski

Each spring, Poland welcomes home roughly 25 percent of the nearly 325,000 white storks (scientific name Ciconia ciconia) that breed in Europe. When the storks return from their wintering grounds in Africa, they are attracted to tall trees or buildings where they build nests that often weigh up several tons.  People sometimes attach wagon wheels to rooftops and barns or tall poles near buildings in hopes of luring the birds to nest near their homes. Today, telecommunications companies put up special poles and nest supports for the storks.

Adult white storks are about 1 m (3 ft) tall, with long red legs, a straight pointed red bill, white plumage, and black wing feathers. They eat a wide variety of prey items including insects, frogs, toads, fish, rodents, snakes, lizards, earthworms, and other prey found on the ground.

Storks are considered to be silent birds, but white storks throw their heads back and clatter their upper and lower bills together rapidly, making a loud rattle.

Stork nests are huge: some old nests may be over 6 ft (2 m) in diameter and nearly 9 ft (3 m) in depth. They are constructed of branches and sticks and lined with twigs, grasses, sod, rags, and paper. Some nests have been in continuous use for hundreds of years . Breeding birds add to the nest each summer, with both males and females contributing to the construction.

Storks stay with one mate for the breeding season, but they do not migrate or over-winter together. If the same pair mates the next year, it is because of a strong attachment to the nesting site. The female usually lays 3–5 eggs, and both parents incubate the eggs for about one month. Young chicks are covered with white down and have black bills; their legs and bills slowly turn red as they mature.

The overall population of white storks in western Europe has declined steadily over the past century, largely due to pollution and loss of habitat.  For example, 4000 pairs made their home in Denmark in  1890, but only 12 pairs were recorded in 1989. Although storks are protected by popular opinion in Europe, they are persecuted in other areas, such as Africa, where they overwinter. Recently, storks that usually migrate to Africa for the winter have been observed to stop in Spain, near the large refuse areas near Madrid, where they find sufficient food.

Today, conservationists use webcams watch over and monitor the process of nesting and raising the young from the first arrival of potential parents in late March or early April to the departure of the family in late summer (September). They are joined by others who love the storks and want to see them flourish. You can watch nesting birds at Polish Stork Webcam
