1962, Tommy Roe went to US No.1 with \’Sheila\’, UK No.3. The record was a personal favourite and is always a good bet for a dedication for Australian girls.
1966, The Who single ‘I’m A Boy’ entered the UK chart peaking at No.2 . The song was originally intended to be a part of a rock opera called \’Quads\’ which was to be set in the future where parents can choose the sex of their children. This is great information. I bought the rock opera Tommy but didn\’t realise it was always part of the Who\’s make-up,
1967, The four Beatles held a meeting at Paul McCartney\’s house in London to decide upon their next course of action following the death of manager Brian Epstein. They decide to postpone their planned trip to India and to begin the already-delayed production of the Magical Mystery Tour movie. Here\’s a link to more podcasts from the Beatles experts
The weather was beautiful and we had a nice early swim before going to the Marina Centro Commercial. I was dropped off along Terra Mitica and I walked for 45 minutes to join Anne at Mercadona. We got back in plenty of time to write my blog and then have dinner watching Redrock. The series finishes on Friday and it has been compelling viewing.
I had enjoyed watching a programme about Rookie Cops in Surrey and the programme was on again around 10.30 pm on Tuesday evening. Again, it is compelling viewing as it has been depicting the work of producing good police officers from the police academies. It has got to the stage where the rookies have almost completed their training. Their mentors have had to supervise them in really sombr cases where deaths have been involved. It had been bad enough to see how these rookies had been forced to really grow up and face dangerous and difficult situations. I have every admiration for these young people and I am fully aware that our society would be dreadful without these brave souls. The police, in general, are tremendously professional and they have a tremendously complicated job to do. They, like parents and teachers, are fighting an uphill struggle gsinst the norms set by the television screens. Having said this I add that our norms are disctated by the producers of violent programmes and the authorities that allow these programmes to be shown. It is not enough to give a warning that we might be offended by wht is coming onto our screens. The content is deemed inappropriate and money is talking louder than the protection of society.
Officers from the Regional Police have arrested a man in Torrevieja who has been practising medicine despite not being registered with any Spanish school or recognised accreditation.
The arrest was made last week but made public on Tuesday after complaints were filed with the police over “dissatisfaction” with the care in his clinic, from which the investigation concluded he had no formal qualification to practice in Spain.
The doctor had his clinic in an urbanisation in Torrevieja which is popular with British residents. During an inspection, the officers found various materials for the examination and analysis of medical conditions but no formal approval to carry out procedures issued by Valencia. Therefore, the police arrested the man for illegal economic activities. Source-SpanishVida
I added this article as we had another doctor in Villajoyosa who had been doing the same thing several years ago. I really do wonder at the cheek of these people and what motivates their behaviour. Aree they people who would truly like to be able to cure and heal sick people or are they evil people who want to abuse the position of the doctor. These charletans are probably a very complex mix but will we ever know the truth?
Sky TV seems to have upped the money as the Premier League has spent unprecedented money in the latest transfer window. It really makes me laugh that politicians seem to allow football to exist in its own economic bubble almost believing it doesn\’t interact with the general and wider economy. Football\’s own rules don\’t allow for a level playing field and the bottom line is those who don\’t spend enough will rarely win the title. I think Leicester proved it can be done but it also suggested the exception proves the rule. I\’d dearly love a smaller club to win the title this year!
