We bestride the cleft of the buttocks of not only a new year, but a new decade.
At this moment have a thought for past actions, decisions and plans that have been delayed and put off for weeks, months or even years.
Delay, dithering and procrastination in the hope that something will work out invariably makes matters worse.
I urge you to follow these three simple rules:
1 Don't dither.
2 Don't delay.
3 Make the decision, take action and grasp your destiny firmly by the horns; as you don't know how long you have left to enjoy the fruits of your labours.
The future is firmly in front of you, and it is in your hands!
Happy New Decade.

At Christmas time, when pubs and bars are heaving, always make sure that you ask to test every beer and wine they have on the premises.
Landlords and customers alike are more than happy to wait for you to test everything, before you end up ordering a half of Carling!

When judging how much food and booze you need to buy, ensure that you have enough to sate the appetites of quadruple the number of people you expect to socialise with over the Festive period (ie 12 days).
Most shops will be shut for 12 hours over Christmas.

One of the trickiest parts of cooking on Christmas Day is knowing when your bird is ready.
Simply prick your bird's thighs; if the juices run clear your bird is ready, if there is blood then your bird needs more time in the oven.

The BBC is presenting its worst Christmas Day schedule since I can remember (they have even exhumed The Two Ronnies!).
I have an old Radio Times in my archives from the 70's, that has a better selection of programmes that this pile of shite.
AVOID THE BBC ON CHRISTMAS DAY!

An opened jar of Haywards Pickled Gherkins has lain dormant in my fridge for several years, the legend on the top said best before July 2016.
However, on testing they were still just about edible albeit very vinegary.
No one died during the course of this experiment!

Every year,around this time, I buy a pocket diary insert for the coming year.
Yet, for the last few years, I rarely (if at all) ever put the diary in my pocket (let alone use it) when I go out; it sits forlornly on a shelf unused.
Why do I not break the habit of a lifetime and stop buying inserts?
A mystery indeed!

The Russian asset in the White House truly has excelled himself:
1 He has withdrawn US troops from Syria.
2 He has enabled Assad to fill the vacuum left by the troops.
3 He has ensured that there will be a proxy war between Turkey (a NATO member) and Syria (supported by Putin).
4 He has ensured that ISIS will regroup and destabilise the Middle East and Europe.
5 He has left 50 US nukes on Turkish soil.
6 He has strengthened Iran and Russia's role in Syria.

Twitter admit to using people's phone numbers (submitted for security checks) for advertising purposes:
"We recently discovered that when you provided an email address or phone number for safety or security purposes (for example, two-factor authentication) this data may have inadvertently been used for advertising purposes, specifically in our Tailored Audiences and Partner Audiences advertising system.
Tailored Audiences is a version of an industry-standard product that allows advertisers to target ads to customers based on the advertiser's own marketing lists (e.g., email addresses or phone numbers they have compiled). Partner Audiences allows advertisers to use the same Tailored Audiences features to target ads to audiences provided by third-party partners. When an advertiser uploaded their marketing list, we may have matched people on Twitter to their list based on the email or phone number the Twitter account holder provided for safety and security purposes. This was an error and we apologize.
We cannot say with certainty how many people were impacted by this, but in an effort to be transparent, we wanted to make everyone aware.
No personal data was ever shared externally with our partners or any other third parties. As of September 17, we have addressed the issue that allowed this to occur and are no longer using phone numbers or email addresses collected for safety or security purposes for advertising.
We’re very sorry this happened and are taking steps to make sure we don’t make a mistake like this again. If you have any questions, you may contact Twitter's Office of Data Protection through this form."
DON'T EVER TRUST SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES!

I trust and assume that those attending today's climate strike gatherings will not be driving to them, and that the children who attend (and skip school) will in future be walking to school and not be driven by their parents or take a bus to school?
