I think we need to hit the ground running, keeping our eye on the ball and making sure we are all singing of the same song sheet. At the end of the day it gets dark and its not a level playing field, because the goal posts might move; if they do someone may have to pick up the ball and run with it.

We therefore must have a shed full of options and be hot to trot from the word GO. It is your train set but we cannot afford to leave it on the back burner because we have a lot of irons in the fire right now.



We will need to un-stick a lot of shit traps but it all depends on the flash to bang time and the fudge factor allowed. Things may start slipping to the left, and if they do we will need to run a tight ship. However i don't want to reinvent the wheel but we must get right amongst the weeds on this one. If push comes to shove, we may have to up stumps and then it will be a whole new ball game.



I suggest that we test the water with a few warmers into the bank. If we can produce the goods then we are cooking with gas. If not, then we are in a world of shit. I don't want to die in a ditch over this but we could easily end up in a flat spin if people start getting twitchy.



To that end, i want to get around the bazaars and make sure that all the movers and shakers are on side from day one. If you can hit me with your shopping list i can take it to the head honchos and start the ball rolling. I know some of you are not the sharpest tools in the box and some are a few rounds short of a full mag, but together we will be the best thing since sliced bread.



There is light at the end of the tunnel and i think we have backed a winner here. However if it gets blown out of the water i will throw a track. So don't shit in your own mess tin, if you have a drama with this , get your feet in my in tray and give me chapter and verse on how you see things panning out. As long as all of our ducks are in a row, i think the ball will stay in play and should come up smelling of roses.



Before you bomb burst and throw smoke it is imperative that we get our heads round this and look at the big picture. I have been on permanent send long enough and had my ten pence worth. I don't want to rock the boat or teach anyone to suck eggs. But we must keep this firmly in our sight picture and not under our hats, or it will fall between the cracks. However if the cap fits wear it, and at times it may be like pushing fog up a hill with a sharp stick.

Marine A is also Canadian for Marine

A bit subtle if you don't know.


How does a Canadian spell Canada?

C eh N eh D eh.


I said that to a Canadian a couple of days ago and she said. 'But that's right, eh?'

How we laughed.
