When the Levee Breaks

EVENING

My No.1: ‘When the Levee Breaks’ by Led Zeppelin

Today, Britain has been directly threatened by the Iraqis.  Members of the British Community in Kuwait are being threatened and used as pawns in the event of a war (which I strongly believe there is going to be).  Bush of the USA is meeting the Jordanian king.  He wants Jordan to stop trading with Iraq.  Bush is being very firm and very strong on this and Saddam Hussein clearly needs a kick up the arse.

Later:

‘Yer Blues’ – The Beatles

I’m applying for a job as a Library Assistant.  I’m just intent on saving as much money as I possibly can, so I can get up and go.

Later:

‘Good Night’ – The Beatles

I spoke to Flash on the ‘phone today.  He got two A’s and a B in his A-levels.  I’m proud of him.  I hope we’re going to be going on one of our little holidays soon.
