Got a new satellite dish yesterday. Yay! I’d been missing Friends (the program, not you bunch on FaceBook)

Got me thinking about satellites though.

One of my favorite songs is A New England by Billy Bragg. It was also covered by Kirsty MacColl who sadly isn’t with us anymore. Stupid motorboat accident.

It has these great lines –

I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them but they were only satellites
Is it wrong to wish on space hardware
I wish, I wish, I wish you’d care

Hope is a strange thing. Wishing for better things to happen is a bit weird too.

The ’cause and effect’ principle comes to mind. I.e. – something has to happen for something else to happen.

Isn’t that true of life as well? Will good things happen just because you wish they would?

Sadly, probably not. 😦

So what are you going to do about it?

Good question.

I’m probably going to wish I could get off my arse and do something….
