Audiology

I went for a hearing test just before my 50th at Boots and was told that my hearing was a little below what they would consider normal/age-related, that I could not hear the ends of words properly and that my tinnitus could be looked at. I have never heard pure silence for as long as…

Family hey!

I have written about my paternal side of the family in the past and the fact that they are distant due to my father and his lies. For those who do not know, my father was having an affair from when I was a baby and continued for 15 years until my Mum filed for…

Taking the piss, an update…

The more I thought about it and the more I read your comments, the more shocked by the audacity of the wealth management guy. I knew I would have to bring it to a close. So, the WM guy was emailed and told that his ideas were not plausible, not only for the amount of…

Scientology with Joe

Thanks to some of my readers I watched the Podcast/Videocast of Joe Rogan and Leah Remini talking about Scientology. I really like them both, so to have them on the one show talking about the aftermath of Leah’s journey within the “church” was inspiring. Joe trying to convince Leah that she should do pot was…

Taking the piss…

Yes, I know, a little vulgar, but the only title I could think of was from Morrissey, which I was tempted to use, but thought, who of my visitors would guess this. Oh, the alternative was The Edges Are No Longer Parallel. I consider myself a good neighbour, and as well as chatting to my…

KAL, A Beginning

So I started by KAL – Paris Toujours, but managed to read the pattern wrongly as part of the repeating was classed as Garter Pattern and Lace Pattern, but the first of the repeats was Garter Pattern x 6. As the pattern is two lines I wrongly presumed that this meant line 1 & 2…

2019 – My Video

I decided to make a video last year and am continuing to build on it each day. My start point was 31st October as this was when I got the software. Each day consists of anything from 1 to 3 seconds of video to mark what I was doing, even if it was a dull…

Book 2 – Troublemaker

A few years ago I watched a BBC documentary about Scientology and found the whole thing fascinating and a little jarring at the same time. So last year we discovered on Sky that Leah Remini had done a documentary series on Scientology after her leaving the church. I had only ever known her from “The…

Book 1 – Frankenstein

First book of the year read. I decided to go for another classic as my first book of the year. I love classic literature and have read many, but I had never bothered with “Frankenstein; or, the Modern Day Prometheus”, to give it the full title. I think it was due to the constant stream…

Renewed…

So, I renewed my service with WordPress for another year. So, I am sure you are all relieved that my mentally ill ramblings will continue. I was thinking of scaling the cost back down as £84 is a bit much, but forgot to click the switch to stop the auto renewal, so here we are.…
