Hi, I’m Mr Knitter, I am a Baron and a Reverend and live in the North of the UK with my Husband and two dogs, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Harper-Lee, and an English Springer Spaniel Mazikeen. I have far too many hobbies, including photography, reading, writing, gardening and of course, knitting. I learned to knit when I was a kid, but it was a short-lived thing due to lack of funds for… Read More
Minus 2 6:15 am and I’m out walking the dogs. Minus 2 and I’m not wearing a coat. Minus 2 but the dogs are happy to be out in the open. Minus 2 and they are jumping in the mounds of leaves piled up on the pavement. Minus 2 and they are happy, jolly and having fun.

Free information and videos etc from his site, so I thought, the time is now. I did what he said in his first video, “How to meditate, the no bullshit guide to meditation”. I don’t know if it… Read More
Ken, or should I say, Sir Ken Robinson in this TED talk answers the aforementioned question. This is one of my favorite talks, so to share my enthusiasm, please watch and listen.
I have a little niggle of a toothache, top right. I can live with it, but some things are a little hard. Eating on the left, not hard, but not used to that. Drinking on the left, a little harder, but manageable. Not sucking hard and creating a vacuum in my mouth pulling on the loose filling, harder, but again, I can do it. The solution so far is to use clove… Read More
