Once again Morrisons in Cromer were advertising for people. My adviser at the job centre said I should give it a go, even though I'd been rejected lord knows how many times over the years.
So I filled out the form and took it back to the job centre on Wednesday. This morning I got yet another rejection letter from their personel manager.

In February 2006, shortly after the death of British wrestling great Jackie Pallo, the Eastern Daily Press got in touch with me asking me to contribute to the article below.
It's the only time during my nearly 16 years as a wrestling blogger I've been asked to contribute something in this way, and even though I only get a brief mention it was nice to get a bit of recognition.

A quick health update for you: this past Wednesday, about five months after being admitted to A&E, I went back into hospital for my heart operation.
The procedure I underwent was a coronoary angiogram. The operation was a success. They discovered some minor damage to a couple of arteries which will be treated with medication, while another artery at the back of my heart was repaired with a stent. I was released from hospital the following day, with strict instructions to take it easy for a week or so.

A few years ago when I was on Seetec's work programme my advisor was a lady called Maggie-May Francis. She was by far the best advisor I'd ever had, a genuinely lovely lady who made the effort to get to know me as a person rather than as a job seeker. We became good friends, and I was genuinely sad when she left Seetec to move on to pastures new.
Our conversations would often stray into non-job seeking discussions, and she often spoke of her work as a singer (she's very good by the way). One of her gigs way back when saw her working as a backing singer for Terry Wogan on Children in Need.

Traditionally it’s the first stop on the road to Wrestlemania, a thirty man battle that carried even more significance this year. But did it deliver what it set out to do? That’s what I’m hoping to find out by watching WWE’s Royal Rumble, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Box Office here in Britain.
