TheWholeTruth

The Whole Truth (Shaw, #1)The Whole Truth by David Baldacci

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


One of the best books I have read in ages. A wonderful super rich megalomaniac as the bad guy and a rough, tough hero as his opponent with a lot of action, intrigue and mystery in between. If this is your type of story I recommend giving it a go.

AV

Did you see the broadcast for the Vote No to AV campaign the other night? What a brilliant bit of television for this type of broadcast. Hopefully it will convince 100% of the population to vote No and stop this farce of an idea. The programme showed AV to be very confusing and will cost the tax payer even more than the current first past the post system.

VOTE NO, YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE.

Blood2

So I went to the medical centre last night to give my blood, the ninth time in Spain. I was signed in, he asked me where I was from and I explained I was from the Isle of Man then lay on the bed and a guy pricked my finger as they do when the admin guy comes running out of the office. Apparantly people from the IOM like the UK cannot give blood in Spain because of CJD (mad cows disease). I have explained that all meat sold on the ION is Manx and there was no CJD on the IOM but to no avail.

I wouldn't mind but this was my ninth pint of blood (half a litre to be exact) over two years. As far as I know nobody in Spain has contracted CJD from my blood.

There you go!!!!!!!

Blood

Monday 4th April blood donation day. I give blood every three months here in Spain. I do it because I can and I think it is very worthwhile. Who knows I might contribute to saving somebody's life. I believe every adult capable of giving blood should. Same goes for organ donations, remember this when I die and if my organs are OK then the medics can take what they like, Sandra knows this.

An interesting story, well written with a difficult plot to believe in, but I enjoyed it all the same.

Prescriptions

So on the day that prescription charges in England go up by 20p to £7.40 an item, Scotland ends all charges leaving Englsnd the only country in the UK to have prescription charges. Why does England not have a devolved assembly like every other part of the UK to look after its citizens, not that I actually agree with another expensive layer of government, but somebody needs to stand up for England.

This day April 1st, April Fools Day is well named because all of England is being taken for fools.
