A day for ourselves and a shock for the driver

Local Church, St. Peters This was an immaculately presented and well cared for church in the grounds of Bosworth Hall. I felt it was a blessing just to go in and enjoy the rich history going back the best part of a thousand years. If I was moving to the area I would definitely be a worshiper and participant here. A walk in the park Back to the English language again. The term 'walk in the park'...

Birmingham – a city to be reckoned with

We left at 9:00 a.m., a bad time as it turned out because there had been a serious accident on one of the main roads and we had to take quite a long alternative route so by the time we arrived at a parking place just by the Bullring it was close on 11 o'clock. We spent most of the day sight seeing. I had been to Birmingham many years ago and I quickly realized that the city has been transformed....

Enthusiasm comes...

I took four pairs of trousers of which...

Fishers of Men + a generous public

This morning, a look at the Gaza cease fire - a busy one for the Israelis in my opinions.  Vanessa Beeley steadfastly reports. She expects there will be some type of False Flag operation maybe in he USA to justify a further continuations of the bombings and slaughter. Systematic assassination of journalists? See more here if you wish. To my Vineyard Church for what I thought was a service but...

A Court case without a court

Not being able to sleep last night, I arose and had a look at some of the programs stored on my Sky box.   I found a series featuring John Cleese who had been given a series of 10 programs by GB news to do what he liked.  He was called something like the Dinosaur Hour. He was talking about wokeness. Before I start, I should mention that it was extremely difficult to hear what he had to say...
