The Chopper – KMC

The Chopper Bike Back to the seventies. I’d just bought my first 45 record single, ‘Long Haired Lover from Liverpool’ by Jimmy Osmond. I was chuffed. I loved music from a very young age, along with scrambling on my bike and playing football. But when the chopper bike came out, I wanted one. They were…

Action Man – MOB

‘Action Man’ The advert dominated the telly. The coolest thing I’d ever seen. Each scene an explosion of manliness and fire. How could any boy grow to be a man without… ACTION MAN!

Thunder Storm Without Sound: By KMC

Thunder Storm Without Sound: By KMC I opened the curtain and watched the flickering lightning striking with its powerful force. It lit up the sky like fireworks through the heavy hitting rain against my window. It was like a battle, the lightning over the rain, light and water both of which we need to survive….

Mankind: By MOB

Man is the only wicked thing on this earth. No plant or animal is malicious in its actions. No other creature lies and deceives. No animal spoils its own habitat – but us! Our industrial revolution was a roll of the dice to make ourselves money at the cost of the forest, the green lands…
