Bad girls’ song


We are the bad teens girls

we wear our hair in curls

we wear blue dungarees

down to our shapely knees

we don’t smoke or drink

that’s what our parents think

My mummy was surprised to see my belly rise

My daddy jumped for joy

It was a baby boy.

Why do people sometimes have an anal fixation?


Some people derive sexual pleasure from their anus. This is bizarre and unhealthy. I am not suggesting that it is unethical or that people should be ashamed of this.

We have sexual urges for reproductive reasons. Our instincts usually have a biological purpose. Rectal sex has no procreative purpose. Indeed it is wasteful. It can cause people to catch infections because of the bacteria in the rectum. Men can contract such infection and women can catch vaginal infection if their boyfriend is double dipping. Bum sex caused lower bowel damage. This is before we talk about communicable diseases. At the very least botty sex is a waste of energy and semen. I am not suggesting people should refrain from it. If they find it enjoyable then go ahead.

Some people like to stimulate their anuses for the sake of sexual arousal. Some men like prostate massage including straight men. But putting one’s hand inside one;s rectum is unhealthy. Everyone knows that this is the filthiest part of the body.

Gay men often like rectal intercourse. Being a homosexual is not shameful or immoral. My point is that biologically it does not make sense. Let these men do as they wish. There may well be a gay gene. I suspect it is a misfiring or the reproductive urge. We now have IVF. But if we did not have IVF we would need people to be straight – most of them. If too many people were gay the human race would have become extinct.

I suspect those who have a penchant for anal sex have a gene that has gone wrong. The generative instinct has been a little misplaced. They are doing something a tad unhealthy and unproductive. Let people enjoy their sexuality however they want. This is a comment and I am not being judgmental.

a dream of the bairn.


I was with the child. he had come out of school on top pf the hill. it was not his school. looked a bit liek near my hotel in Cuba. it was not his.

He came with me and he was elated to see me. How I am anguished not to be with him more. PerhaPS I am thinking this because of aggro with my pater.

I took him on a red double decker Lodnon bus. we were chatting gleefully. It was an old routmaster with no back door

he wanted to get ff while it was moving. I fooloshly let him and got off too. the he waned tpo get anc on so he chase dit. so did I. he held onto the while pole for a while and ran along then he lifted himself on. I jumped on. Later he fell on the bus face first and hurt himsle.f I cradled him. he  oaned but was not badly hurt. I fear being in charge of him. I dd not want hom to get hurt.

I had seen his mum yellow o skype the nigt before but did not call. was on a bsuiness call.

A dream of the NHS.


I was wandering around London on a rainy day. There was a grim ferro concrete building. I knew it to be an NHS hospital. I went into it. Inside there were many beds with leather matresses but no sheets. Almost all were empty. There was row after row – tapering away. The place was dimly lit. One could like there and rest awaiting medical attention. A few bandaged men lay there. is aw no women. It qas quiet.

Later I exited and got on a red routemaster. This double decker took me around the city – somewhere in northern London. Maybe becase I have been thinking off paying a visit to VInne in future.

I met someone  I know. do noot recall whom. The whole ambience was dispiritng. This is possibly oweing the fact I was reminiscing about feb 2009 yesternight.

All about Astana


Astana is the capital of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Astana was founded in 1830. In those days it was named Akmola which translates as ”white grave”. In 1830 Kazakhstan was becoming united with Russia and Russian people were moving to Kazakhstan. In the 1850s a railway line was built to Akmola.

Akmola became an important administrative centre. A lot of trade was done here. Some factories were set up. There was a lot of fighting around Akmola in the 1920s. This was the time of the Russian Civil War. Eventually the Soviet Government regained control of the area. The Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic was founded. The Kazakh S S R was part of the USSR. The captial of Kazakhstan was Almaty.

People from other parts of the Soviet Union moved to Akmola in the 1930s. They were from Russia, the Ukraine, Belarus and Georgia for example.

In the Second World War some factories in Akmola made weapons for the Red Army. Soldiers from Akmola fight bravely. This helped the Red Army to win.

After the Second World War the Soviet Government saw that Kazakhstan could be good for farming. The new leader was Nikita Khruschev. Khruschev was the First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Khruschev said that Kazakhstan was full of virgin lands. He moved many more people to Akmola. He renamed the city Tselinograd.

In 1991 the Soviet Union came to an end. The Soviet Union divided into 15 countries. One of them was Kazakhstan. AFter a few years the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, decided to move the capital to Akmola. He did this in 1997. Akmola was renamed Astana.

Astana has almost 800 000 people. Astana is world famous for its architecture. It is a city of the future. It has many lines of symmetry. There are enormous and very impressive buildings. Akorda Palace is the presidential palace. It is a beautiful and stunning building. The Beyterek is a fantastic stylised tree. This wonderful building is based on the old Kazakh legend of a bird that laid a golden egg. From the top of this structure you can see for many miles.

There are plenty of shopping centres around the main square. There are lots of five star hotels and fabulous restaurants. The Khan Shatyr is a magnificent shopping and entertainment centre. It looks like a tent. Architecture here is very daring and ambitious. No expense is spared. The Palace of Peace and Reconciliation is another awe striking building in the shape of a pyramid. There is a very tall flag pole near Duman Hotel. There are also buildings with arches and these are very attractive to look at.

The city is growing rapidly. A lot of businesses have set up here. Astana is becoming ever more successful and impressive.

This sport has been around for thousands of years. The first documented wrestling bouts were in Ancient Greece almost 1 000 years ago. At the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece there were wrestling matches. Greco-Roman wrestling evolved from what we think the rules were in ancient times. Greco is another adjective for Greek.

Freestyle wrestling is also a popular sport in Central Asia. Freestyle invoves a circle within a circle. Two wrestlers of about the same weight face off and on a signal they engage. They must try to get their opponents shoulders pinned down. Then a win will be declared by the referee. Hitting, kicking and biting are not allowed.

Wrestling is popular in Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Iran, Pakistan and several other countries. It is an Olympic sport. This sport requires strength, agility, speed, cunning and courage.
