    I'm on, sitting in bed with the tv on in the background, Amy snoring away happily next to me and I'm sat here monitoring the Vec-C server and working on more optimisations for it.

    I am on Vec C . Com too ,

    watching YouTube music videos as well .

    Recently discovered a great song from 1972 ( one year before i was born )

    Called ............... " Alone Again Naturally " == By ............. Gilbert O'sullivan .

    It's got really interesting lyrics about .....

    climbing a tower to throw yourself off ,,,,,,,, being stood up at a wedding ,,,,,,,, being cheerful but life knocks you down ,,,,,,,,,,,, questioning god .............. the singers father dying and his mother not understanding why the only man she had ever loved had been taken ,,,,,,,,,,,, And then she passed away and the singer was left alone , Naturally .

    it sounds depressing ,,, but it's a great song .

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uv-xJ8cRtMQ == I think this cover version is as good as the original .

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzh9TieKS1o ====== THE ORIGINAL SONG .

    In a little while from now
    If I’m not feeling any less sour
    I promise myself to treat myself
    And visit a nearby tower
    And climbing to the top will throw myself off
    In an effort to make it clear to who
    Ever what it’s like when you’re shattered
    Left standing in the lurch at a church
    Where people saying: "My God, that’s tough
    She's stood him up"
    No point in us remaining
    We may as well go home
    As I did on my own
    Alone again, naturally

    To think that only yesterday
    I was cheerful, bright and gay
    Looking forward to well wouldn’t do
    The role I was about to play
    But as if to knock me down
    Reality came around
    And without so much, as a mere touch
    Cut me into little pieces
    Leaving me to doubt
    Talk about God and His mercy
    Or if He really does exist
    Why did He desert me in my hour of need
    I truly am indeed Alone again, naturally

    It seems to me that there are more hearts
    broken in the world that can’t be mended
    Left unattended
    What do we do? What do we do?

    Alone again, naturally
    Now looking back over the years
    And whatever else that appears
    I remember I cried when my father died
    Never wishing to hide the tears
    And at sixty-five years old
    My mother, God rest her soul,
    Couldn’t understand why the only man
    She had ever loved had been taken
    Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken
    Despite encouragement from me
    No words were ever spoken
    And when she passed away
    I cried and cried all day
    Alone again, naturally
    Alone again, naturally

    Working nights is a doddle!, If you have the right job/hours! I'm on Mon-Fri 8.30pm start to job & knock (anywhere from 03.30-04.30/ 04.00 max on fri) so its fairly easy compared to all this 12 Hr shift over all days of the week stuff!, Good on you all who have to do it but its not for me Big Style i'm afraid, Work are good when you need to do something personal as i did this morn & they let me go after 4 hrs with full pay .
