I fired my first shots from my dad’s Ruger Mk II pistol, which I now own, when I was three years old. My dad would take my brother and I through the woods, his scoped Remington 700 on his shoulder. Dad never missed an opportunity to take us shooting. I went from a Marlin .22 rifle to a .20 gauge Remington 870 and beyond. We didn’t have a lot of money, but ammo was cheap and time was preciously used forging a family of shooters. Some of my fondest memories are of shooting with my dad, under his careful direction, and always listening to his well-placed comments on personal responsibility and respecting firearms and human life.

Typical bloody teachers always blaming someone else, of course it isn’t their fault, never bloody is!
PRINCIPALS ARE dealing with an “exponential growth” in the number of teachers having inappropriate relationships with students and they blame text-messaging, the drop in the drinking age and dating websites.
They are being advised to set rules about teacher-student texting, and, to avoid problems, some teachers are even being warned to stay out of pubs that students visit.
Patrick Walsh, vice-president of the Secondary Principals Association, said it was hard to track the number of inappropriate relationships because they were often dealt with within the school. But as an expert in education law, he was hearing from increasing numbers of principals having problems, and called the increase “exponential”.
Texting, drinking together, dating websites and students using teachers as confidantes were all blurring the line. Walsh said many of the teachers slipping up were young men and women who started out by simply trying to be friendly with their students. That was fine, Walsh said, but it became a problem if teachers and students actually became friends.
Then there is Twitter as well as a couple of fool tweetchers have found out. There conversations were nice and public.
Frankly if a teacher can’t tell the difference between appropriate and inappropriate behaviour/communication with their students then there isn’t much hope for their teaching ability either.
In my recent blog post about a blog set up by a teacher my friend warned about this sort of behaviour, she just forgot to mention they are all drunk … probably when they blog too. Turns out that the kids at school should be watching out for pwedator tweetchers not the predator public?
This video shows a Turtle trying to have sex with a boot. Why? No idea but it is Sunday night so here it is for some light entertainment. It is either hungry or horny, either way it is seriously confused.
Bridget Saunders has a post on Dud roots. She reckons that they are simple not into you if they “starfish”.
I disagree. You are either good in the cot or not as the case may be. People who are a dud root deserve all the opprobrium attached with being stink in the cot.
I think another factor may have inadvertently been discovered at No Minster and that is if the said root is a cloth cap wearing socialist. For a start they are extremely likely to be extremely dowdy, ugly to boot and that should have given you a hint about their skill in the cot.
Though there is a school of thought that a friend of mine employs and that is to “Go early, Go Ugly”. He reckons he has a 100% record of blagging a root and ugly chicks are more grateful.
Listen to Chris Trotter speaking with Larry Williams about Mike Williams and finally ending up with a chat about the EFA.
Trotter, like the good Labour lickspittle he is, runs the party lines about “somebody” who spoke up, couldn’t be seen and Mike moved on. Unfortunately for Trotter we now know who it is and it s beyond belief that Mike Williams didn’t know who was speaking.
Finally Trotter finishes up by describing the legislation as appalling or some such thing. Oh and Farrar gets a mention, interestingly as a legal expert.
