Newspapers....

Post by Who2 »

Holidaying in egypt for many months of the year I always missed the feel, the fun, the smell of a newspaper.
Here I read local rags and always Saturday's Grauniad.

20 odd years ago reading a local rag, I managed to acquire 6 apartments for friends.
Reading this week's Guardian I have finally, found out why I have 'headbanger headaches.

My Dr gave up after a few years even though me wanting to strangle him, tomorrow I'm off to see him or try!
It's also known as the 'suicide headache, Now I never knew that, and had never heard of cluster headaches.
1 in 1000 UK sufferers, I have never met another.

So, you learn something new everyday, It's good to hear you don't have a brain tumour,
cheers one right up!...'trust me... 8)

Ps: It brings a whole new meaning to 'clusterf*ckers.....

So after posting this to friends on FB for their comments, here is an 800 word piece I did for the local rag.

It's my first attempt at public writing, I'm doing this while waiting for my ruddy bank to answer my call.

I’m sure they do.

Not many 1&2 page newspapers nowadays. Not worth the trouble. :P
