I thought that I might  try sticking my head above the parapet just to see what happens:

After all

Almost any human activity carries some risk, but some are much more risky than others.

When I first thought of trying this I wondered whether I should do a risk assessment or not but decided that if I chose to do so I would have to do a risk assessment on doing the first risk assessment.

I concluded that the risk of assessing that the risk of doing the risk assessment (the first one) was too high. It would either hold things up for too long or would stop me risking sticking my head above the parapet.

In the end I decided to risk it. After all, what could possibly go wrong? I could be called all sorts of names, but I’ve been called names by fools and experts, I could be completely ignored, but I don’t give a …..tinker’s cuss…., I could be told that my presence is not wanted….so what? Story of my life at times.

So here I am…risking popping my head above the parapet and ready to duck!

I lifted that list from another Blog…could be quite risky!

    I am the Jennie-come-lately but I know you’ll from my brother Ramana’s blogs.

    Glad you took the ‘risk’ to stick your head above the parapet….and quack, quack to you as well.

      Jennie-come-lately? I’m sure there’s a song in there….from the 1960s…however, I’ll have to introduce you to my son’s girlfriend who is, emphatically, Jennie and was named as such.

      hat was quite a quack you made.

    Magpie, I will not gush. However, I salute you for taking your life in your hands – and RISK it.

    May all your other readers be spared a spot of Irish potato blight and constipated e-motion should they need to pass one.
