Pig wrestling …..

September 4, 2017 |  by  |  Humour, Linkedin Blog

Whilst on holiday in the US I got chatting to an old Kentucky farmer named Bo who told me, “Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty, and the pig likes it.”

Our conversation was about how important relationships are to being happy and successful.

Upon learning of my daughter Yasmin’s brilliant exam results, Bo said to her, “You’re clearly a bright kid, but I suspect that you also put your eggs in the right baskets.”

Bo was right ….. the right friends, the right teachers and the right attitude.



The Great Eggscape

– A guy I know, Gavin, died from drinking too much antacid, I can’t believe Gaviscon.

– I decided to sell my Hoover ….. well it was just collecting dust.

– My pet mouse Elvis has died. He was caught in a trap.

– Wife to friend: “My husband knows absolutely nothing about cooking. He thinks that poached eggs are illegal.”


Live big & love deep.
