    Wow. Doesn’t seem possible. Mind you, I was trying to work out the first gig I went to recently and that was T.Rex in 1969 so that was 50 years ago.

    Was that gig at Soton Uni? If so, I was there.

    Wow! That was value for money. From memory they had not long changed from being a hippy duo Tyrannosaurus Rex to poppy electric band T. Rex. Lots of screaming girls in the audience S they just had a hit with Ride A White Swan. My next live gig was Deep Purple which looks much better on the CV.

    Now you've made me feel old, realising I was at the Fratton cup tie, and Highbury semi-final the year you were born

    Knowing that next year I'll have been teaching for 40 years. The old timers when I started had invariably been Dunkirk or D Day veterans.

    Looking at today’s TV programmes Strictly, Apprentice and other reality crap on TV.

    Not finding today’s comedians very funny at all.

    Driving home this evening, the radio played "School's Out" by Alice Cooper, a record I bought, aged 12, when it came out in 1972. I pointed out to my wife that a 12 year old today, on hearing that record, would be the equivalent of us in 1972 listening to a tune recorded in 1925.

    I just had a similar experience. I am on an ELP appreciation site and tonight someone posted a Melody Maker review from their gig at the Hammersmith Odeon in December 1972 which I attended. I was 18 at the time and remember it like yesterday. Where does the time go?

    Two things.

    I had a birthday recently. I told some of the younger members of staff that I was now of an age where every summer I could rent a cottage on the Isle of Wight, if it’s not too dear. I was met with looks of utter bewilderment.

    Yesterday I visited my local library and on the counter were takeaway copies of a freebie newspaper called “Mature Times, the voice of our generation”. I picked up a copy without hesitation.

    Saw the Doctor this morning, they are a proactive practice, get you in for an MOT and check over before you've gone wonky.
    Doctor asked how I was, I said I had a spot of sciatica since last Tuesday evening taken a bloody age to go, normally sleep and its gone. Cheeky bugger just said you're getting older and as that happens bits of you just wear out!
    So its not just "Things that make you feel old", bloody medical professional officially confirming it to you!!

    Went to my doctor for the first time in a decade because I had 4 months of feeling nauseous every time I ate anything and was losing weight fast. He basically shrugged and said "what do you expect me to do about it?"

    Fortunately it got better by itself.

    Went to my doctor last week, told him every time I raised my right arm above my head it was really painful.
    He said,"well don't do it then.."

    .... egg bag, bag egg...

    Thanks. Are you going to do the whole Tommy Cooper act now?
