Does that make you feel old, just a little? He’s feeling pretty young himself – expecting another baby very soon, (his last, he says )

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first.
The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur’s closest friend!
Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.
He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur
He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur’s life and the preservation of the Round Table.
Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur’s question thus:
What a woman really wants, she answered….is to be in charge of her own life.
Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth and that Arthur’s life would be spared.
And so it was, the neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.
The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened
The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.
Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day….or night?
Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments?
What would YOU do?
What Lancelot chose is below.
BUT….make YOUR choice before you scroll down below.
Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.
Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.
Now….what is the moral to this story?
The moral is…..
If you don’t let a woman have her own way….
“Things are going to get ugly”
PJ Harvey also featured on ‘Boogie For Stu’ tribute album
The Rolling Stones have reunited with their former bassist Bill Wyman to record a tribute song in honour of their late pianist Ian Stewart.
The song, a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Watching The River Flow’, is set to be included on a tribute album for Stewart, who died of a heart attack in 1985. He had played and recorded with the band since their inception in 1962.
Fansite Iorr.org reports that the Dylan cover features “all Rolling Stones members including Bill Wyman”. Original member Wyman left The Rolling Stones in 1992.
The album, which is called ‘Boogie For Stu’, has been helmed by pianist Ben Waters. It also features a contribution from his cousin, PJ Harvey, reports Spinnermusic.co.uk.
Waters has previously confirmed that Keith Richards plays on three tracks on the album, which is out in March.
It will be nice to see Bill again!
Funny editorial from today’s paper. I can relate, LOL
By IAN GILLESPIE
It’s time, once again, to make New Year’s resolutions. And you know what that means, don’t you?
It means we’re going to fall flat on our faces.
Every year, of course, millions of deluded ham-and-eggers like you and me resolve to re-invent our dismal little lives. Inspired by fast-talking, self-help experts and a dissatisfied culture of self-loathing, we convince ourselves we’re finally going to turn over a brand new leaf.
For many of us, that means losing weight, quitting smoking, learning new skills, eating healthier foods, getting more exercise, watching less TV, getting out of debt, getting better organized, spending more time with family and friends, doing more volunteer work and generally morphing into new and improved versions of our current selves.
But as we all know, that’s pretty much pointless.
And I’m not just basing this on my own personal experience. I’m basing this on a study conducted at the University of Hertfordshire which claims to be a university north of London, England, but apparently hasn’t ever played in the Rose Bowl, the Cotton Bowl or even the Get-A-Life-Fiesta-Fun-Anyone-Can-Play-As-Long-As-They-Bring-A-Snack Bowl, so I’m dubious).
This study, which surveyed 700 people about their New Year’s resolution strategies, discovered 78% failed to achieve their goals. Researchers also discovered the majority of those who failed became despondent about their lack of success.
So what should we do?
Well, many experts recommend we break our goals into incremental steps and reward ourselves when we achieve these small objectives.
This strategy, however, can prove troublesome. Last year, for example, I resolved to drink less beer. But I realized “drink less beer” was far too vague. So I made my goal more specific: Drink no more than two beers a day.
And then, following the advice of several self-help experts, I rewarded myself whenever I achieved my daily target. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of rewarding myself with beer.
