Where to spend New Years Eve?
That all important question that comes up every year. Maybe we should ask each other where to spend the Winter?
I am not a big fan of the cold dark wet months of Winter in London.
I think I will be in front of the TV at home this New Years Eve or I might go to a small party at my friend`s house.
Is it better to be in some new place like Big Ben in the cold or on a beach in the warm?
Blue skies and sunshine is where I want to be. I sure don`t want to spend the first part of 2014 slumped in some cold kitchen or walking around the streets with a can of something in my hand.

Born in Perivale
Not far from Percy Bilton Bridge
I first learned to read and write and pray at St John Fishers
In the street I scored my first goals
I strived to be a Wiseman in Greenford senior school
Sadly this was where I also had to say goodbye to my brother.
The Perivale train I rode to work day after day
So many people in the same race the pace was too fast the cost too high
So one day I stopped taking that same train and left that race
Now I am home, not far from Flynns And The Fox
Discarded beer cans lying blinking in the rain
Many mini-markets selling food from far places
CCTV cameras and speedbumps like fallen soldiers
Thousands of tweets, ,likes n txts
A Celtic son still close to his Fairfields of home.

"I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve.

Have you seen my friend Wally the Whale? He was last seen on the beach in Lanzarote. Don`t worry he has turned up now. Thanks for all the...
