Tessa Barrie takes a light-hearted look at getting older

Exposé! Men Demeaning Women – Enough is Enough!

And so it goes on … our post of 16/05/2015 zoomed in on Toronto’s Teeny Weenie Hecklers making sexually demeaning comments to  Toronto’s City News Reporter, Shauna Hunt, on live TV. Shauna, I am glad to say gave the little squits every bit as good as she got.  Please see one of the offending dicky, dicky, dumb, dumbs […]

QOTD – This is so true

GOW RANT – Particularly Grumpy Today

I get back from work grumpy and I read the news which makes me grumpier.

Am I Losing My Mind? Nah! It’s Just My Age …

I don’t suppose that listening to music through earphones is helping the inevitable. I am going deaf, let’s face facts. At 14 I was playing music LOUD! I have carried on throughout my life, live and loud. Either torturing the neighbours with my own compositions or going to […]

GROUCHY BLOGS – Noise Intolerance

I know as I get older that my tolerance to noise had dwindled. Sitting by a swimming pool is a good example. I think parents are oblivious to the noise that their own children make but, in most cases, they are listening to music, loud, on their iPhones, […]

Switching Off

Am away for a couple of weeks and finding it difficult to switch off. I always have done. Not sure why. I am on holiday and home from home. Heart pounding, mind racing. I admire people who just flick a mental switch and go from 9-5 to mañana […]
