A Poem For January From Ann

We had this ditty from Ann Stuart, the Landlady of the Half Moon in Stoke sub Hamdon. Enjoy!

A Poem for January

'Twas the month after Christmas and all through the house Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.

The stuffing I'd nibbled, the turkey I'd taste The yummies I'd eaten gone straight to my waist.

The wine and the mince pies, The bread and the cheese

I should have just said, "No thank you, please."

So as I dressed myself in my boyfriend's old shirt, I couldn't believe my bottom and belly - the girth!

I said to myself, as only I can, "You can't spend the year disguised as a man!"

So away with the last of the sour-cream dip, Get rid of the fruitcake, every cracker and chip.

Every last bit of food that I like must be banished 'Til all the additional ounces have vanished.

I won't have a cookie, not even a lick.

Instead I'll chew on a long celery stick.

I won't have Irish coffees, or chocolates, or pie, I'll munch on a carrot and quietly I'll cry:

"I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore- But isn't that what January's for?"

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot,

Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!

Wednesday 3rd 2007

It's back to work for most of us and is it just us or does it feel like hard going for everyone?

Not much to tell you about at this time of year but here's what we have.

Live events in South Somerset & West Dorset
Jam Night @ Woods Wine Bar, Yeovil
Willie Nininger & Karl Weber @ Nags Head, Lyme Regis

In the Taunton and Bridgwater areas all we have today is the Open Mic Night @ The Flying Horse, Taunton.

Driving Test
News out today suggests that the Government will be beefing up the driving test to cut the accident toll of young male drivers. But what will happen to the secondhand market for Novas and Saxos if the young guys are kept off the road?
Sales of 'FAT' exhaust pipes will plummet as well.
