Comments:Anti-Boasting Cream. Way back,I went to see Doctor Pinson (remember him?) about my big ego. He told me to buy this anti-boasting cream. I said, " How do I apply it? It's just that I've got really soft, sensitive, supple skin." He said, "You just have to rub it in."

Comments:After boasting about how great she is doing hand stands, Elaine E was advised not to practice it in her new Boro' Green Primary school since her underwear is usually exposed. Elaine was proud at her achievement after her first day - performing against that east facing brick wall. She was eager to tell Mum about Stephen R's keen interest when showing off her skills. Mum reminded her about exposing her knickers of which she replied, "No Mum, Stephen was not seeing my knickers." "How come?", said her Mum. "Because I took them off Mum." she replied.

Most have powerful motors with multiple speeds, different patterns, are customisable, or can be utilized with an app - some will even vibrate to the beat of your favourite song.

You were lead singer with The Quarrymen [Liverpool] rock/skiffle group, during the latter half of the 1950s. Pauline Cunningham's boyfriend from Kingsdown was also in the dream group. [He performed with his skiffle group at Wrotham Rock 'n Roll Club, of course]. You were even doing the Chuck Berry duck walk (he was a favourite of yours); as you well know. The dream was really nice, but then my cat woke me up. I had been laying on her sleep aid 'purr pillow'. Have a nice week, Ann.

I assume Steve was mostly interested in Vimto, ginger beer, Smith's Crisps and Whitbread inn signs at that time, and his liver was in perfect condition. I would be so appreciative to know which aunt it was; he had so many aunts and cousins.

With the climate change, I've heard that Rex's Kentish ragstone shed has dried somewhat. In the past, I heard that sitting against one of his damp, cold walls made visiting BH's backache worse. Even slowed him up on the cricket pitch later in his career, while representing the BG Veterans XI. He had to have his back massaged following every over, and when the players left the pitch he was transported on a wheelbarrow. Well, cheerio for now Peter. Elaine.

He is coming across as someone of substance, whilst Boris, Raaab and team come across as bumbling fools. Someone should tell Boris to read his own Government statistics about Covid, rising every day.

It was contested during playtimes over a period of one and a half weeks. The two eventual winners were Stephen Russell and Robin Hodges. They had selected special trees into which they hurtled sticks to bring down their nuts. Stephen's were close to where his father market-gardened, by Basted House - and Robin's were just off of a lane at the other side of Oldbury, in the direction of Stone Street (he lived in Ightham). Prior to the tournament commencing, Robin and Stephen cycled to Meopham to practice there together. They said it was to breathe in the air of John Tradescant the Younger's birthplace - he had been responsible for the introduction of the horse chestnut tree to our Isles in 1633. Robin and Stephen were serious about their sport. There was controversy that Stephen's conkers were pickled with a mixture of malt, apple cider and Balsamic vinegars

Ms Garlick appearing in my dream was probably due to the thought of the 'King of herbs' being included in your diet. And further extending your lifespan and many years of superb chairmanship of BG Parish Council. I bet, unlike Harry, Ms Garlick has never been seen cleaning out curbside drains either. Or did I dream it?

Comments:The Government Local Boundary Commission is requiring updates to polling ward boundaries to ensure population growth doesn't affect the average number of voters in each constituency/ward. Very laudable and democratic. But the local conservative party executive have instructed TMBC to reduce councilor numbers from 53 to 46, ostensibly to save money. But at 5k per councillor, that saves at most 50k, small change compared to TMBC's 60M budget. By judiciously adjusting ward boundaries they can ensure that Independent and Lib Dem wards suffer the most cuts, and they hope to reduce BGLM to a single seat, and put adjacent Indy parishes into Conservative stronghold wards. It will also release Tory financial resources and candidates to blanket remaining Opposition wards. It will probably backfire spectacularly, because people do not like being manipulated by politicians. We have made our own submissions, pointing out that the savings are minimal, but there will be a huge impact on representation Torys are members of TMBC, we represent the people AT TMBC

Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the result – sundry of whom had never viewed pornography as a problem first – queued up afterwards to guarantee their support. The mise en scene highlighted Dines's explosive charisma and the factually that, since the death of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most difficult and spellbinding of public roles: the community's cardinal anti-pornography campaigner.

Comments:Why is the presence of rich people such a powerful prediction of poor people's life expectancy? Contagious behaviour may be driving this, poor people living near rich people may pick up a lot of their habits. Some of these habits - say, pretentious vocabulary - aren't likely to protect one's health. Others - working out - will definitely have a positive impact. Indeed, it has apparently been shown that poor people living near Tugger Tom exercise more, smoke less, and are less likely to suffer from obesity. I'm approaching obesity, my neighbours are poor and I don't think they would fancy a diet of West Malling baby spinach, Wrotham cheese and Beirut peacock. They could do with some of Tugger's money though.

Jake admitted to pigging out on Glaswegian fried Mars bars - saying they were "absolutely delicious...glad to see there's something with which I agree with the Scottish National Party." Tugger trimmed one and a half centimetres from his waist during 2020, in his bid to show that rich Tories are doing their bit to reduce levels of obesity. Gavin Rees-Mogg forecasts there are going to be changes made, if/when Tugger becomes PM.

During 1958, I wrote that down in my diary, supposing that one day I would find out what it meant - especially when seeing how successfull an operator Steve was with them. Well, I'm getting closer - apparently Barry was referring to their uppertail coverts. I might start a correspondence course about it in January.

Comments:You might think that people search for jokes more often when they are sad. Many of history's greatest thinkers have claimed that we turn to humour as a release from pain. Humour has long been thought of as a way to cope with the frustrations, the pain, the inevitable disappointments of life. As Charlie Chaplin put it, "Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease from pain." --- However, searches for jokes are lowest on Mondays, the day when people report they are most unhappy. They are lowest on cloudy and rainy days. And they plummet after a major tragedy, such as when two bombs killed three and injured hundreds during the 2013 Boston Marathon. People are actually more likely to seek out jokes when things are going well in life than when they aren't.

Or we let gays marry but not own homes - come out against gay mortgage." He said, "With both sides so set - one being all for gay marriage, and the other side being completely against it - how about we just let lesbians marry? It's a woman's thing anyway." He continued, "When people talk about homosexuality being 'not natural' and 'an abomination', they're not talking about women - they're talking about the men." His opinion gradually used to change.

Tugger was seen recently at BG Four Ways Crossroads - it is believed he was getting a free dental inspection. His smirking Tory handlers and supporters think he is making progress towards replacing Boris. I'm still waiting to hear him say something against BG Garden City. That $98,000,000 U.S. Nett would buy him a nice pad there though. That's probably gone up several million or more during the pandemic, too.

Often naughty Ross, always escaped punishment by correctly answering Miss Griffin's difficult questions. Arguably again, Miss Griffin's favourite girl pupil that year was Heather Crowhurst from Wrotham. Heather later became 'Reception Class' teacher [previously, Infant's teacher?] at BGPS... A few years later, Roger Pettet and another boy were taken by Miss Griffin to see 'Hans Christian Andersen' (Danny Kaye), at the Rex Cinema.

One of Edward's daughters was Miss (Kathleen) Griffin. She was an accomplished teacher at Borough Green Primary School for 28 years (1935 to 1963)... In July 1963, she took her sad farewell, with Dr. Say, the Bishop of Rochester giving the address and making the presentation.

Comments:The 'Daily Mail' wrote that COVID-19 was spread by Chinese people who eat bat soup. They also published a video (apparently) proving it. It is another classic example of misinformation that mixes authentic facts, taken out of context, and prejudices that confirm a certain vision of the world... The video shows a Chinese woman eating bat soup. She is not a victim of the virus, but is a famous travel blogger who is testing a specialty of the Palau archipelago - far from China. And this happened in 2016... A title such as "Revolting Footage Shows Chinese Woman Eating a Whole Bat at a Fancy Restaurant as Scientists Link the Deadly Coronavirus to the Flying Mammals" (Thomson 2020) - which is exactly what 'Daily Mail' titled their story - is not totally false. But it's not even true.... The 'Guardian', in response to this way of presenting things, suggests going to YouTube and looking for videos of Westerners who feed on black pudding. You can find many such videos, but nowhere will you f

NO puppet nooky, PLEASE!"

Comments:Hello, Mr. Stephen Russell : I get the impression you are still a kind, considerate man - staying out of mischief! - and would not mention having a [made-up] headache when spurning romance. Hugs and nooky can ease the pain of a [genuine] headache. Like chocolate, hugs boost levels of serotonin, along with the hormones dopamine and oxytocin, all of which feed into our general sense of wellbeing. Nooky does this too but on a much grander scale. So when you have had a bad day with a niggling headache, self-medicate by wrapping yourself around a special loved one. Also, remember all those good times at Borough Green Invicta Youth Club!

Comments:During my 1954/55 arrival to Western Road, from Manchester, my neighbour and friend was Stephen Russell. His surname is not strictly Russell - Rissole is his correct name. Via French origin, it is from russeolus - Latin for rissole. On leaving Wrotham Secondary School he joined the Navy. One of his favourite aunts, from Ivy Hatch, expected him to become Rear Admiral Russell - however, that was not to be. After a comparatively brief time, all were happy when he returned to Boro' Green. During his mid-teens plus, his steady girlfriends were Margaret M. from Kemsing Road, Wrotham and Carol B. from Wrotham. They were understandably, very proud of him.

It was some time before she realized Mr. Raymond couldn't read or write, so didn't cotton on to much in those days. Plus the fact for the last part of it, she had dreadful morning sickness - hiding that from all was a mission. In Borough Green and West Malling, I had never heard anything like that mentioned about Mr. Raymond. Jean said she hadn't told anyone else about this.

Comments:During the late 1950's, I got my hair cut in a converted part of Manchester House in BG High St. It was named 'Raymond's', and run by 'Mr. Raymond' (a Mr. Bligh). Sandra Cripps, from Wrotham, cut men's hair and was alluring and popular. Men were also happy to see pretty Nona Judge, one of the ladies hairdressers. Nona had lived with her mum above Mr. F. J. Clark's grocery shop at No. 35 BG High St. At about this time, Mr. Raymond opened a hairdressers in West Malling High St. I believe Nona worked there for a while - does anyone know about this? The receptionist there during 1965 informed me that Mr. Raymond couldn't read or write. During the late sixties, David Bance had the Gent's section at the Raymond's, Manchester House, BG High St., location. Do you know if he was related to Peter Bance, Mike?

Comments:While occasionally chummy with lower classes, does Tom Tugendhat with the tweaks to his diminishing upper lip; grins/frowns and gait adjustment; give you the impression he is trying to look like an East Ashford, Willesborough window cleaner, from near where he grew up in the sleepy village of Sellindge? He has been known to hang around the Chatham area to take in the Kentish form of Cockney; so here and there we might hear him slipping in that accent and vocabulary. So doing, he seems to be thinking he can tap into securing the support of disillusioned Labourites. I've heard that his big admirer, fellow-toff Jacob Rees-Mogg, is considering a makeover copying Tom's adeptness. Are we about to witness the Frog and Mogg Show?
