When people feel they’re smart (i.e. clever).

On the Rock, crawlers there might say, “He t’ink he smart!”. In England they might say, “He’s trying to be clever.”  Basically this is about people creating a perception that is not matching up with something. It could range from twisting the truth to telling pure lies.  I’m not goingRead More

Free and good stuff

Recently a colleague at work asked me about ‘a wordprocessor’ for her computer. She was about to get ripped off by some ‘computer-guru’ who was about to dent her account to the tune of £190 for a brand new Microsoft Office 2013 suite. Don’t ask – it was some botchedRead More

It makes me wonder

You know, sometimes you listen to a song but you don’t quite hear the words – or if you do hear some of them, you don’t really think much about them; simply because the music in the song is so nice. Well, this is one of those. I mean, I’veRead More

How to risk losing your religion?

Just watch all of this video. Of course, there must be a view out there that Dawkins is possessed by the Devil – and if you subscribe to such a view, then you are prohibited from watching any of this. By extension, I’m promoting the work of the Devil –Read More

Living out the future..

It’s the greatest time to be alive!! And ‘time’ is of the essence. I recall 35 years ago as high-school kids we wondered almost weekly what the world would be like in 2010 (an important ‘landmark’ of the future for me). Well, I’m here! And the ‘future’ is great! LiveRead More

Change of policy after this

Stupidity is something that has baffled me for a lot of my life. I’m not into definitions today. Look at the following sequence – and it’s not important where this conversation was happening. The only relevant context is that the other person was going on about FM Radio (as aRead More

Blackmore’s Night

There’s just too much music out there to discover!! I’m delighted that I’ve recently come across Blackmore’s Night. I only include some clips that I find exceptional (yes – and I know you may find other videos by the  group to be more worthy of showcasing).  Dancer and the MoonRead More
