I took it to "plot" (the vegetable gardens name) and gave it some serious field trials weeding. Guess what folks? It works perfect. I wish there was a blacksmith apprentice course for him, because he's wasting his time staying on at school. The sad fact is the poor kids know that there will be no jobs when they leave school when they are eighteen. Not everybody is academic. Some folk are entirely practical and have photographic memories of pieces of equipment that they can make at the drop of a hat. I say bring back the Arts and Crafts movement and the local Blacksmith and other trades people. The country dweller shouldn't have to go to the big towns and cities for employment. Lets create rural jobs for everybody who lives there.
Right sermon over. We will now sing hymn 52. Talking of music. There's a superb film on BBC 1 tonight at 12.30 am. (I know). If you staying up watching the snooker don't forget to record this film: "Once". It's a musical about a Dublin busker who meets a wonderful Czech immigrant played by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. She's a classical pianist in real life and the sound track won an Oscar. The film is funny, sad, very moving and full of excellent songs. I was that impressed that I bought the DVD. Don't miss it folks!
Here's: "Falling Slowly" for you. Enjoy!
