ANGELA & I ~ Each day meet lots of FOLK

Who are unhappy & discontent ~ Who

Live in the Developed World ~ so they*re not really broke

Dissatisfied & Miserable ~ how ever much the*ve SPENT ! 


We need to count our Blessings ~ look at what weve got

Compared with the majority ~ weve got quite a lot !

The SUN to keep us warm ~ Water fresh to drink 

Ample food ~ affordable ~ for most of us I think !


Most of us get Water ~ cool -clean - fresh from the tap

Not from a muddy River ~ or a stagnant Well

There are plenty JOBS ~ if were prepared to WORK

Our air is clean and breathable as well !


ANGELA & I have to be content ~ To do our Jobs

In cheerful mode ~ for our Food & Rent !

ANGELA does not fret shes not a DOCTOR

And I am Happy in a TECH ~ not a University PROCTOR !


We*ll be Happy when we live together in my Flat ~ in ESSEX

Not in KESWICK ~ with its Lakes & Hills & Heather !

Were Happy with our Friends & Family ~ Kith & Kin

WE know we have all their support ~ through TICK & THIN !


SO ~ If you want to be HAPPY ~ in the skin you*re in

Just be CONTENT and do not fret ~ if you*re Chubby or you*re Thin

AVOID STRIVE ~ and *Always look on the Bright Side of Life !*

And always LOVE your PARTNER or your Husband or your WIFE !


Thanks for visiting comments welcome LOVE Angela & Brian ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก


We appreciate that there is a wide range of Ages & Stages & Wages 

among Members of MPS.  Our message is simply to *Count your

Blessings and be CONTENT with what you HAVE GOT and dont fret

about the things you HAVEN*T !  Half of the Worlds Population havent

even got a decent Pair of Shoes ~ how many pair do you have ???????

ANGELA &I do have a Car (and BIKE for Me !) but we dont own a

House and may have to live (when we are Married !) in my Flat

(£750 per Month !).  House prices in Essex near the College &

Hospital start @ £250,000 and many are in excess of a MILLION.

We are not losing any sleep over accommodation and we will

worry about affording CHILDREN when we HAVE SOME ! Since

We met each other we have been CONTENT & HAPPY TOGETHER.

    Erm, yes. Ken would be happy. He paid his taxes? We won't go into that!
    You started me off singing 'Love and marriage', then summat about a horse and carriage going together!
    A very old version from 1955 by Frank Sinatra. I knew it would be an old song!

  • orchidee

    Me again! It's no excuse - you (and all of us) have to pay our taxes. That pic in the clip might make some folk furious, though some will laugh with him, for supposedly having beaten the 'system'. Fido's mad (angry) too, but he always is barking mad!


      Thanks UNCLE STEVE ~ Ive added a bit more ~ please check ! Pleased you enjoyed our Presentation ! Being a TRUE SCOUSER my MANTRA was *KEN DODD for KING* Although my the Lads in Walton Prison were very disappointed when Ken didnt join them ! As far as I am concerned Ken paid a hundredfold in Chuckle Taxes with the pleasure & Joy & Happiness he brought to the whole Country ! I (BRIAN) only saw Him once and Im still laughing ! I bet Heaven is a much less serious Place now that Ken has arrived. He was a regular attender @ Liverpool Cathedral and my Cousin (who is a Server)) tells me He always put 50p on the Plate ! There will never be another SIR KEN DODD ~ RIP !

      Blessings & Joy to You & Deputy DOG
      Love in the Spirit ~ Angela & Brian

      My blessings are always there when I awake every day. Each moment is special and I treasure them all.

        That's devotion - supporting each other even if one of ya gets fleas - tick and thin! heehee. Fido spotted that - not that he has any ticks!

      • Fay Slimm.

        You have outlined the formula for attaining happiness and that is in being content with the moment - -- we can all work to improve conditions for more to attain the happy state but being happy within ourselves is the very first step to take -- a fine goal to aim for and to achieve and thank you dear duo for the needed reminder.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          Angela here (9:30am Thursday - Clinic @ 11am !) Just catching up on MPS ! Good Evening FAY thanks for your positive comments - pleased you enjoyed the Presentation ! Brian & I were both raised in very suportive Christian Families and though neither of us followed our PAPAs Profession they have supported us as Students and in our Professional Life ! We are fortunate and count our Blessings every day. We know the next 10 years will be difficult - Setting up a Home - and raising a Family and developing our Careers ! Fortunately in my profession I can easily return after Maternity Leave (Im getting BROODY !) We know there will be stresses ahead but our resolution is to be CONTENT - which WE know will always result in Happiness - AMEN !

          Blessings & Peace & Joy
          Love ANGELA & BRIAN
