Silly Songs

Limericks are fun, I hope these amuse.

There was an old farmer from France,
Who had a ridiculous prance,
He went to the vet,
Who made him all wet,
Then led him a merry old dance.

There was a young lady called Joan,
Who was terribly accident prone.
She leapt to her feet,
And fell in a heap,
Breaking her left collar bone.

There was a young lady called Pru,
Who married an ape from the zoo.
She fell for the charms,
Of his long hairy arms,
Then went off to live in Peru!

There was a young man of the Nile,
Who lived on a rather large pile,
Said his mother get off,
Or people will scoff,
But he stayed where he was with a smile.

There was a young man of the Nile,
Who lived on a rather large pile,
Said his mother get off,
Or people will scoff,
But he stayed where he was with a smile.

VEGETABLE DREAMS

There was a young turnip called Lars,
Who wished he could fly off to Mars.
So he asked his sweet mum,
To buy for a plum,
A rocket called Head for the Stars.

She stood with him under the gable,
And said “Oh! I wish I was able,
To send you off, son,
With a big current bun
But we’ll likely end up on the table”.

My work background is in operational meteorology and in my career I have been involved in forecasting for everything from bananas to jumbo jets.I joined the Met Office 1974 as an observer at Glasgow Airport. After training as a forecaster, I worked as an Operational aviation forecaster at various defence sites and airports. In 1982, I moved to Glasgow Weather Centre as a forecaster and STV broadcaster till 1988. He then took up a post as Senior Forecaster London Weather Centre, then Senior Forecaster ITV where I qualified as a trainer in presentation techniques for the ITV Association. After being diagnosed with MS, he moved into management and became Head of London Weather Centre in 1997 followed by a period of front-line management for Southern England and Europe covering London and Cardiff Weather Centres and the Met Offices on defence stations from Akrotiri in Cyprus to St Mawgan in Cornwall. He took up the post of Met Office Chief Advisor for Scotland & Northern Ireland in March 2008 and moved to Edinburgh. I retired in September 2014. My one claim to fame is once performed a comedy sketch on TV with Manuel (Andrew Sachs) from Fawlty Towers in support of Comic Relief.
