Cheer up!

Posted by Ian

We’re apparently facing the biggest economic slump for 60 years, looters are preparing to terrorise our towns and cities, and Mr Burns and Rev. Lovejoy’s wife are hoping to win the US election for the Republican party.

But it’s not all bad. It’s the start of a new month, always a time for beginning anew and thinking fresh thoughts. Here are six reasons to be cheerful this September:

1) Autumn is coming, with its rich colours, wistful horizons and mellow moods. Already you can see the dew in fields and on lawns first thing in the morning, and there’s a wonderful softness to the sky that you don’t get in the middle of summer. It’s nature kicking back and preparing to put its feet up, and it’s beautiful.

2) TV gets good again. Traditionally this is the time for channels to unveil their new season of programmes, and while we don’t get wall-to-wall new series like we used to, there’s still enough to get excited by: Strictly Come Dancing, Merlin, Heroes, God On Trial, Survivors and Little Dorritt on the BBC alone, plus that bizarre remake of The Family on Channel 4.

3) Big Brother ends. The show is a joke that lost all humour ages ago. Rules don’t apply anymore (housemates seemingly able to come and go as they please) and anybody who is likeable always get kicked out during the first few weeks. The fact so few people cared about it this year, however, is a promising sign.

4) The awards season begins. For fans of ludicrous outfits, breathtakingly pompous speeches, shocking miscarriages of justice and British people doing well in America, there’s plenty to satisfy: the MTV video awards, the Emmys, the Mobos, the Mercury Music Prize and, if you’re really desperate, the TV Quick & TV Choice and Inside Soap awards.

5) Formula One goes after hours. Depending on your point of view, Grand Prix races are either thrilling exhibitions of peerless skill or a bunch of show-offs driving round and round the same bit of road for three hours. On 28th September the first ever night-time F1 is being staged in Singapore, which will at the very least make the thing seem a bit more unpredictable. Sport fans can also look forward to World Cup football qualifiers and the Ryder Cup.

6) The secret of the universe will be discovered. Well, in theory. The world’s largest scientific experiment begins on 10th September when a particle accelerator the shape of a giant hula hoop buried deep underground in Switzerland is switched on. It’s hoped that it will be able to recreate the Big Bang and hence disclose some truths about the meaning of life. If it does, we won’t ever have to think about the price of eggs or Big Brother again. Hooray!

And if you’re still feeling down…

Every valley has Louis Vuitton Handbags low point. Life has its ups and downs, Chanel Handbags peaks and its valleys. No one is up all the time, nor are they down all the time. Problems do end. They are all Hermes Handbags in time. http://www.ladiesugg.com/specials.html
