Because we exist in a world that is set to negative it has to be assumed that any change in the status quo (either suddenly or covertly) is viewed according to how we are conditioned. Unfortunately the Brexit issue is no exception. A poll was recently taken with a small majority vote to exit the EU by the British people. There are two things to bear in mind here: 1 the split was almost 50-50; 2 the resulting derision was expected and, unfortunately, unavoidable. In the aftermath we are left with in-fighting. We have to change the way that we  [ Read More ]

Those who watch and enjoy the TV show “Strictly come dancing” may be able to relate to this article. For someone with two left feet, couldn’t snap fingers to a funeral march and relates rhythm to some kind of seismic shift, I feel that I am hardly qualified to air my views on how we express ourselves via the melodic vibrations. However, as “vibration” is the key word, this gets me out of jail. Human expression is what makes us tick. It is the only means by which we can convey our inner feelings via our emotions and make communication  [ Read More ]

If I could collect one tiny snippet of truth each time I heard the question: “Is there more to life than this?” then I would be a truly wise person indeed. It deserves a simple explanation now that we question our origin more than ever before. It seems that life is administered so unfairly whilst some folk cruise along with no problems and others ride the roller coaster. I don’t have the answer as to why there is so much diversity between our lives. Neither does anyone else for that matter, although some may think that they do on account  [ Read More ]

I find it fascinating to uncover the truth behind all the age-old customs that we have taken so much for granted. Someone has gone to a great deal of trouble to research this and the least I can do is share it with everyone. So many thanks to the person who took so much time and effort to bring this information to our attention. The question is: WHY WHY: Why do men’s clothes have buttons on the right while women’s clothes have buttons on the left? BECAUSE:  When buttons were invented, they were very expensive and worn primarily by the  [ Read More ]

This is an article that I’ve lifted from the Internet. I thought it was worth more than just one look so here is my blog The best way to keep a fly away. Let’s make that ‘flies’ shall we lol.   Summer is coming, and other than sunshine and heat it also brings droves of flies, one of the most annoying and harmful of insects. They lay eggs in food and spoil it as well as spreading disease . . . and did we mention annoying. If you have problem at home or even on a nature walk, here is  [ Read More ]

CHOICES, CHANCES, CHANGES “You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.” These are The 3 C’s of Life that many folk are familiar with. It is a logical progression in order to facilitate change. After all “change is the only constant in the Universe.” Now who said that? Actually a few like-minded folk have created this phrase. However, what if there is another set of The 3 C’s of Life that are equally as profound which could possibly explain the natural law of Cause and Effect from our human perspective? . My version  [ Read More ]

To be more precise I should title this YOUR Memory Lane. All too often in the past people have written, discussed, debated and documented Memory Lane with the intention of bringing a little of the past back into our lives, even if just for a short while. In order to succeed the theme had to be more of a general nature because readers and listeners come from all walks of life and different geographical locations. Being specific was the only way in helping to create interaction and that greatly reduced the impact of the exercise. Well, not this time so  [ Read More ]

A never-forgotten experience turned into a story This is a short story; an experience. It came to me a long time ago and I remembered it as I awoke one morning. It is based around a place that became very familiar to me through one very special person in my life at the time. It is written in the first person singular, so it might take a short while to adjust to the writing style. Seeing as “The Meadow” has now been written, I thought it was appropriate and worth sharing, although this is a very different story.   DEAD  [ Read More ]

FROM WIKIPEDIA “Hartlepool is a town in the ceremonial county of Durham, and is part of the Tees Valley economic area in the North East of England. It was founded in the 7th century AD, around the Northumbrian monastery of Hartlepool Abbey. The village grew during the Middle Ages and developed a harbour which served as the official port of the County Palatine of Durham. A railway link from the north was established from the South Durham coal fields to the historic town. An additional link from the south, in 1835, together with a new port, resulted in further expansion, with the establishing of the new town of West Hartlepool. Industrialisation and the  [ Read More ]

The coming years are going to represent the biggest change and challenge to our lives; more than any other time in living or historic memory.  . HOW WILL YOU ADAPT TO A CHANGING WORLD? . The world of plenty is no more—in fact it never existed in the first place. It has and will always be a changing world. The ancient mindset of robbing Peter to pay Paul as a system for survival was just a clever piece of deviousness, invented to create the illusion that we could go on for ever with materialistic progress that could only ever prosper those  [ Read More ]
