Nostalgia- peace – telephone etiquette – priorities

Renegade church attender I believe there was a Vineyard Church service this morning in my Radstock Methodist Church but I had no impulse to go. The Christmas and New Year I regard as private time, reflection time such as  what should I be doing in the new year, in what way can I become a better person,  so the last thing I want is ordinary every day chat. Peace perfect peace I am more than...

The fear campaign continues – even the forecast is being weaponized

Storm Henk – the eighth storm of the season– threatens to smash Britain this weekend as New Year is threatened by nationwide gales, rain and up to eight inches of snow. The entire country is on alert for three days of weather hell as the gates to the Atlantic swing open to a barrage of cyclonic low-pressure systems.

I decided to have an extra day's 'holiday' and the more I thought...

Our journey sounds simple enough, get a bus than a tram and arrive at East Croydon, from thence take the 20-minute rail journey to Victoria station, walk to the coach station, await the 11am coach (M10 as it so happens) and be transported to Bristol, then take the...

Boxing Day – a quiet one

This was the time to be at home. My sister made a supply of sandwiches for a lady who goes around and feeds the homeless. We had masses of food leftover from Christmas day which we consumed. Time to pack our bags. I wish I could figure out why we sleep so badly because we wanted to sleep. I do not want to blame EMF fields for everything. I have decided to visit my sister more frequently perhaps...
