Living your own life or the world living your life.

People believe that they’re living their own lives. I’ve come to think that they are not – for the most part. Life is about living the time between birth and death. What you do with that time is important. People find different purposes in life: Some want to contribute to societyRead More

Told to leave Aldi if I want

This report is 100% honest, and is quite probably caught on more than one CCTV camera. I’m naming Aldi and if they want to sue for defamation, bring it on! Their lawyers are advised in advance to read up on the law of defamation and that I have my lawyersRead More

Motivation is a trap

Placebo

Placebo is the name of a band. I’m not interested in the band, in this post. This is about the nature of the placebo (and related) effects. I’m not giving a definition on this occasion. Readers can jump on the net and find whatever definitions they like. I’m sharing someRead More

About spit!

Oh – I just had to post on this. Well, I was at a hotel last week. I had not been for several months due to COVID restrictions of several types. I had observed similar things at local supermarkets before getting to the hotel. So, this isn’t specific to hotels.Read More
