Summary and 2 Videos of the 3rd Republican Presidential Debate

Now we have two videos (commercial free) of the Republican Presidential debate last night. Please just click (Read more >>) below to see the videos.
This is a short summary of the third Republican Presidential debate that was held in Boulder Colorado last night.

I am already tried of all the politics and we have a very long way to go. My brother likes Jeb Bush, and I make a joke and tell him "Jeb's dead baby, Jeb's dead" ...  like the scene from the Pulp Fiction movie "Zed's dead baby, Zed's dead".
Also I had a good laugh when Jeb used the analogy about a "French" work week. I doubt the French people will appreciate his comment, even though it is true. 

The CNBC journalists (is that what they call themselves?) were terrible, I mean the questions were pathetic and Ted Cruz did a good job of stating this for the record. Rarely do I agree with Ted Cruz, however in this case he was 100% correct to tell these lame CNBC workers off. I do not even care to refer to them as journalists and they should be ashamed of themselves.

Life at the End of a Rope 

by Anthony Alcock

This is Tony's first book and I am helping him promote it. Tony is a fantastic writer and below is a summary of his book.

This book is the authors partial autobiography focusing on his time spent living on a boat, initially for four years in the late 1970’s in Marina-del Rey, California and, more recently, in Ventura Harbor, California.
Inspired by the lifestyle of boat living and others, who enjoy this in so many different ways, he shares his experiences with both those who live this life and others who might aspire to do so.

He outlines his personal experiences and includes advice for anyone considering taking this journey.  He has also included nine true stories of others who have chosen to “live aboard”.  Each of these accounts is unique and make for exciting reading.


My visit to England in the summer of 2015

By Tony Alcock

I visited family and friends in my home country for close to a month.  I was with my brother and his extended family for the first few days in Leicester, some 100 miles north of London and later stayed with my good friend Ann Green in Honiton, Devon in the Southwest of England.

The whole of the UK is continuously at the whim of hot and cold “fronts” from every direction.  Therefore forecasting the weather is virtually impossible.  Even in the so-called summer, on any given day, the sun may shine, the winds may blow, the rain may fall, or it might just cloud over to be the traditional “grey sky English day”.  Understandably, the English are obsessed with the weather and it is always the main topic of conversation; “I’m sure it will brighten up later”, “The sun will come out tomorrow”, “Isn’t it just a lovely day”.
