“COCK OFF!”, Troll, and other irritations ......

The new cockerel on the block

Old cock 



Yesterday a new cockerel has suddenly appeared in this part of the village and the resulting “ Cock off!” between him and the single and rather lonely bantam cockerel who has lived between Church and gardens for over two years now was loud and never ending since around 4am.
Like my fellow blurry eyed neighbours , I am very much in need of my bucket of coffee this morning.

The new cockerel with his distinctive crow has proven to be a minor irritation today
Yesterday I was irritated by a troll, which is the way of the world , if you have, like me,  blogged for any length of time.
Trolls surface like pond scum
Or as Julia Robert’s Julianne said in My Best Friend’s Wedding 
“ pond scum. Well, lower actually. like the fungus that feeds on pond scum.“
Anyway the analogy is true Trolls surface, like pond scum, from time to time.

For those that didn’t pick up on it, my troll appeared in Sunday’s blog. She ( and the language and way of writing proves the gender of the troll to me) disguised herself as a somewhat angry and traumatised elderly man called Bill, who had been separated from his Alzheimer suffering , nursing home resident wife because of Covid . “ He” took me to task about us not social distancing or wearing masks on the beach, not adhering to Government rules ( which we were) and eventually  became more angered with a  more pointed rant “ People like you ..selfish....hugs and kisses with a friend .....etc etc “ All personal attacks centred around me ,emotion and not in any fact relating to personal “ bubbles “ and rules of the time.

Bill’s logging on to blogger was only on that day. The threats and arguments had been clearly been collated from months ago and the troll didn’t factor that her use of language and argument  had been clearly used before under other pseudonyms and guises.
It is easy to compare the wording and grammar
Exactly......A no shit Sherlock moment ..

How dare that troll.
How dare you, pretend to be and hide behind such a vulnerable character, in order to make a point and to obviously win an argument.
And how sad that you have spent the time processing this infantile disguise in order to garden support and sympathy .

This is not the way adults should behave
You should be ashamed of yourself.

There, out with anger , in with love!

My bucket of coffee is almost empty and I’m more awake and I feel more human
and finally the Cock Off has quietened down somewhat, so much so that  I can hear the hedge sparrows arguing again in the honeysuckle over the front door.
Big breaths
Out With Anger , In with Love

Today is a mooch day .
I considered cinema but the weather is good and Mary has been booked in to the vets at 4 pm for a check up on her recurrent ear problem .
So I will be making low fat meals for my Next long days at work.
I’ve arranged to meet some old friends on Friday who are staying at Matriarch Irene’s Caravan park
and Sunday it’s lunch out with Chic Eleanor and friends 
All lovely social things to look forward to
Social distancing and government guidelines permitting
.........of course!

I will leave you with this video
It reminds me of my singleton days before Husband and after my first boyfriend

  2. Oh, John. So sorry the troll found his (um, her) way in. Again, a pox on all of them, who have apparently have no lives and rely on vicarious living. Parasites, I believe they are called. "Cock of the Block" is hilarious! You do my soul so much good! Thanks for the laugh!

  4. Oops. One tiny word missing makes all the difference.
    I was a little surprised at your social gathering but I immediately thought these are responsible people and following the rules.
    I am fortunate to not be attacked by trolls, just problematic people at times.

    1. Just to clarify
      Welsh rules states it is fine for 30 people meet OUTDOORs without masks.
      Social distancing was adhered to where ever possible
      But please note the majority of nurses at the hospice had been officially diagnosed Covid a while ago and are therefore now deemed immune. The rules changed on Monday where it is still legal to meet in a group of 30 outside in wales but only 6 can meet indoors.

    Oh John, I'm sorry that you've been unsettled you of all people don't deserve to have a troll. I don't comment much these days as you may remember things are difficult here at home right now but I wanted to add my words about this and reading the offending comment and subsequent comments I'm assuming you suspect it's the dreadful Ursula person who I know has blighted your life and took away some of the joy of blogging in the past.
    My daughter works for the NHS and I know the stress that causes particularly at this time and I appreciate she deserves her time out to enjoy herself as you do too. Keep caring, keep loving life and keep blogging as there would be many people who would really miss you, you've offered me kind words in the past and they're appreciated.
    Peace and love to you

  10. Ah well. It helps me to know that some people are just so very wounded in ways that we may not be able to see which causes them to act in bizarre and angry ways.
    To a point. It's not acceptable for them to take that anger out on others who are innocent.

  13. If you can't have a day on the beach with colleagues from the hospice, to relieve the tension of what must be an incredibly stressful job, it is a very sad world indeed. I had the privilege of spending time with a friend who has just died and we decided 'to hell with social distancing'...to which you could add 'and trolls'. Having said that, if it surfaces again, just ignore it. They thrive on attention and conflict, so don't give it any satisfaction.

    I didn't see your original post or the ensuing comments so I'll scroll down to find them. I don't get trolling, regardless of who does it. Some people just enjoy stirring the pot. I guess it gives them a sense of power. (Like "anonymous" immediately above!)

  22. Trolls are sad individuals who delight in upsetting people. Like all bullies they hate to be ignored - or deleted.
    If all they have to feel proud of when drawing their last breath is how they unsettled and upset people, trying to prove how superior they are, they deserve our pity.

      What a shame the cockerels didn't get along with each other.
      Did you go collect the beautiful feathers lost by the bantam? Those feathers would look pretty in an autumn arrangement unless they're mangled.

  30. John I can't decide if trolls are to be pitied (as they are unhinged), envied (as they clearly have a lot of time on their hands) or totally ignored because they are insignificant. I'd go for the latter. You are flippin great and if you and your hard working colleagues don't deserve a fun afternoon I don't know who does. Magnificent cock by the way x

  31. I don't understand why people who read a blog, any blog, don't pass right on by when they find something that makes their bile rise. This is your space to say and post what you will... I am here because I like what you say and the way that you say it, and of course you have cute animals. I have visited many blogs that I don't subscribe to as I didn't like what they say or the way they said it. How difficult is it to understand that?? Trolls need to just get back under the bridge. Nice looking cock. Pity the bantam has been out cocked!

  33. Like the title of the blog a fun play on words. It saddens me that you have a persistent troll who borders on the edge of harassment, I think she probably has no friends and is envious of you, she comes across as someone with an obsessive compulsion disorder and obvious she needs help. Hopefully your blog can catch her out before being published.

  38. First, I want to complement this site administrator for creating this platform for us to express our feelings

    I frequently get cold sores(which lasts for 5-6 days on my lips and its painful both physically and mentally) .. As a bodybuilder, I basically get outbreak due to the daily pressure and heat in the body.. Recently I stumbled upon my salvation. I found a herbal remedy to cure hsv completely, in just 4weeks ..

    I got to know about Dr Utu after seeing a lady's testimony online. I reached the doctor and I ordered for herpes herbal medicine. He sent the herbs to me and I started making use of them. In just 2days, the cold sores are cleared. 4weeks after medication, I went to the hospital for test of cold sores and it was completely NEGATIVE.

    By following every prescription, i was able to cure my cold sore in less than 4weeks. 100% natural herbs no after effect.
    Note: Please do let others know if this work for you.
    The doctor's email is drutuherbalcure@gmail.com
    Note : follow all instructions accordingly..

    If you are sure that you have benefited from this African herbs be courageous to inform others.
    Thanks in advance
