All thoughts on this blog are mine, everyone see’s things differently and that’s how it should be, otherwise it would be a very boring world…

And if you don’t like it, no one is forcing you to read it.


Political Correctness Gone Mad

Say what you feel. It’s not being rude, it’s called being real.


Words fail me, (not really but if I wrote my thoughts on this one, all hell would probably break lose).


Shrewsbury folk festival have banned morris dances because of their blacken faces. There are arguments for both sides in the article but it was this statement that really got my goat

Fairness, Respect, Equality Shropshire (Fresh) said the ban showed sensitivity “to a changed social climate”.

Morris dancer have been blacking their faces for 100s of years, it’s a tradition, it comes from a time when begging was against the law, blacken faces meant it was hard for them to be recognised.  If it is as they say ‘a changed social climate‘ I would like to ask those who have complained if they are prepared to give up their traditions. That’s as far as i am going, I can feel the red mist descending🙂


amazing facts?

If you argue with an idiot, after a while it is hard to tell who the real idiot is.

Carrying on from the last post here are so amazing facts, although I found some of them interesting, I wouldn’t say they were Amazing facts to blow your mind as the title suggests.


127 Days

Never be afraid to try something new… An amateur built the ark that lasted forty days and forty nights; professionals built the titanic that sank.


I have been busy playing, I am in pre-Christmas mode. I have made Christmas lights for the porch. Glue and glitter make me so happy.😀

What Winter

In my childhood I led the life of a sage, when I grew up I started climbing trees.

So here we are halfway through August and we haven’t been told we are going to have an arctic winter and there may not be enough electricity!  What is happening?



She Lives


If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear!
Mary Shelley



Last tonight we headed to Dudley Zoo, for a Dudley Zoo after dark presentation by flatpack of The Bride of Frankenstein. Imagine sitting in the grounds of a ruined castle, subtle red, blue and green lighting behind the windows. Eyes, lighting strikes and arcing electricity projected onto the walls, creepy music punctuated only by the eerie calls of the peacocks. The breeze picks up moving the dark clouds ominously across the sky as night falls, and then the film, in all it’s glory.

I hope this is going to be a yearly event, being in the castle grounds really added to the atmosphere.

Buzz, Buzz, Yum, Yum

I keep my head held high and smile, because there are people who will kill to see me fall.


Our first cucumber this year and it’s over a foot long. That’s in tonight’s salad😀
