Saturday Night TV

I remember a time when Saturday night television was something to stay at home for.  The channels used to fight to get you to watch their evenings entertainment.  These days it would seem that any old crap is put on. I looked through the schedule and nothing on that inspired me to sit down and... Continue Reading →

Greed Friday — A Take

Here we go again for the 3rd year in the UK, Black Friday has arrived and consumerism and greed take over in abundance. Do not get me wrong, I love a bargain, I enjoy shopping and buying lovely things, but I will not be taken in by a superfluous event that is driven to make... Continue Reading →

Who Are You?

I came out the side entrance of my house to put the garden bin out. You are parked there, with your engine running and side lights on. This is private land, and no thoroughfare, so why? I give a quizzical look.  I put the bin at the kerb and walk back and your full lights... Continue Reading →

Local Library

My local library decided to put books on display for reading with a huge banner saying “Black History Month”. It was October, and they thought it would only be right to focus on their history and struggle. However, the book stand had a measly 7 books, and that is the total of their stock throughout...

I had always wanted to be a writer and reflected on my writings when I was a kid, doing a project in the summer holidays that... Continue Reading →

A little of what you fancy?

They say, “You can’t have/do that, it’s bad for you.” “That carcinogenic, don’t eat that.” and much, much more. I agree on some things, like heroin, smoking, and eating glass. However, on the measure of food, I consider it all hokum. Yes, radical thinking I know, especially in the age of 5 portions of fruit... Continue Reading →

American Horror Story: Hotel

I am totally hooked on #AHSHotel, and some of the Hotel characters really stand out for me. The obvious one is Lady Gaga as Countess Elizabeth, who knew Gaga could be so good, perfect role and she gets 10 out of 10 from me. I like most of the characters so far, but my favorite...
