New year approaches but not much changes

I’m not one for wishing people “Merry Xmas” and “Happy New Year” etc.  I need no lecture from anyone on how to be kind, civil, mannerly, respectful of others, and how to keep up appearances. The changes in the last few years about sending cards and wishing others ‘this’ andRead More

Trouble in Oldham

One or more of the following videos (below) is expected to a 90% probability, to disappear within the next 3 months from Youtube. Just to be clear – that means there is a 10% probability that they will remain. Did I make a prediction? I did NOT! I made aRead More

Wrestling with patterns

I’ve written before on ‘patterns‘. As I go on I discover more how serious patterns are in our lives. There are of course good patterns and bad patterns. Patterns are not simply what people refer too as ‘habits’. Habits though having patterns of their own, reside within the a deeperRead More

Anti-social media

The more I look at and think about so-called ‘social media’ the more I come to some very different perspectives (in general – meaning exceptions excepted as you might expect). 1. Social media is more about prying on what other people are doing. 2. People comparing themselves with other people.Read More

Can’t do won’t do

As on a lot of occasions I come to blog something, it’s been at the back of my mind for some time and then it certainly hits me. Yuh know, like it’s some kind of build up inside. Calm down – does it have to be anger? Does ‘build up’Read More

I’m not a this sort of person

I often hear things of that nature from people e.g. “I’m not a computer person”, or “I’m not a driven by money sort of person”, or “I’m not a Nigela Lawson fan”, or “I’m not a Paxman person”, or “I’m not a Russell Brand person” or “I don’t like ToryRead More

And who are you?

Minor and strange encounters with the humans often fascinate me. I’m amused or even bewildered by their thinking and responses. Today another minor encounter, put me to think. I’m walking along on a pavement, on the side of a street (just to be clear), in my home town. A manRead More

Paint thinners

Right – why the devil would I want to write on or refer to ‘paint thinners’, on a sunny Sunday morning in my patch of the UK?!! Have I not anything better to do? Of course not! I decide as usual what’s better or best for me to do withRead More

Email woes again!

I’ve been receiving unsolicited promotional emails again. I mean I tick the relevant box when I deal with companies – checking carefully that by doing so I do not opt in for such emails. But it’s clear to me now that they take no notice. They insist on sending meRead More

Car tyre madness.

I have a recorded conversation with Kwik-fit head office, confirming that I am at liberty to publicise their policy of fitting of tyres brought by customers (not purchased at their outlets). Of course I intend to make comment about it – and you can imagine that I’m going to sayRead More
