Age like wine not milk …..

There seems to be an ever growing number of keyboard warriors on social media.

Cyber bullies who are a colloidal carbuncle on the backside of humanity.












Contrarian individuals who disagree in a disagreeable manner, and whose sole purpose is to rain on your parade.

I had the good fortune to meet one such invertebrate last week, when I was leaving a combat class still wearing my sparring gloves and a t-shirt bearing the logo explosive ape.

The sight of me in my battle dress seemed to puncture the keyboard warrior’s balloon, drain the colour from his cheeks and render him speechless.

Despite a primal urge to demonstrate the brutal efficiency and effectiveness of urban combatives, I took the moral high ground.

Sometimes you just have to accept that you exceed the intellectual limits of others, and let them paddle in the gutter while you surf the ocean.

Don’t let psychic vampires, dream stealers and keyboard warriors sour you ….. Age like wine not milk.















  1. My mother-in-law bought a parrot, but she took it back to the pet shop a week later complaining, “It doesn’t talk and hasn’t said one word yet.”

    “I haven’t had a chance. You don’t even pause for breath,” replied the parrot.

  2. At a social gathering, Gladstone once said to Disraeli, “I predict, Sir, that you will die either by hanging or of some vile disease”.

    Disraeli replied, “That all depends, sir, upon whether I embrace your principles or your mistress.”

  3. Overheard at a garden-club meeting: “I never knew what compost was until I met my husband.”


Live big & love deep.
