After searching the web I found the above essay that was written in 1994 and even though it is dated I still think what it says is applicable.
Parents hate Barney because of the over exposure and commercialisation of Bartney as a product.
Teenagers hate Barney because of the forced, standard, behavioural ideals that he promotes and because they are the ideals of the establishment. Obviously there is a lot more in the essay than that but it is way too deep for me. It is written with regard to the social history of the US so it doesn't really apply to the UK, but I feel that the points the writer makes are valid. However, my older kids dislike Barney because they think he is an annoying, insipid , pain in the butt. And that is without the social/cultural heritage of the children of the US. The writer of the essay however feels that little children love Barney so much that they would fall on a grenade for him.......hmmmm! I think Beauty is getting there. At the moment she is squealing with delight whilst watching her Barney video.....on rewind. It's the bit where the egg falls...over.....and....over.....again.

He is definitely not at any trial, that is a double! Just driving home from town I dropped Runningman off in Llanedeyrn and I saw Saddam with a women at the bus stop opposite the catholic church. I wonder if George W. Bush or Tony Blair know? Should I tell them?

Let me see..............nnnaaaaaa what's one more mistake!!!

Beauty was awake at 4.30am so today has been a little bit confused, so much to do but so little energy to do it and the warm weather didn't help. Unusually for me I have been drinking lots of water but as usual I have been lying down a lot with leg problems. It has been a long hot summer and it is only July, perhaps it seems long because the weather has been so hot.
Sleep beckons me but Beauty is ready to rock and roll as she had a nap.

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
