Thoughts on birthdays … (2012-4-10)

I think it was on my fifth birthday that my Grandad put his hand on my shoulder and said, ‘Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.’ That phrase was maybe not quite what my wonderful Grandad told me way back when but it’s close enough. […]

Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! (2012-3-1)

I WANDER’D lonely as a cloud That floats on high o’er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the Milky Way, They stretch’d in never-ending […]

Sometimes some things are just not meant to be (2011-5-29)

“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.” — Bob Marley Some regular readers will have noticed some posts have gone private, some links do not work, some data appears to be missing.

Such is life! (2011-5-19)

Just a short entry. I need to remind my kids how much I love them all. Remind those whom may not like that to go f**k themselves! Remind those who care that I care for them too. Remind those who don’t give a fig, that the issue is theirs and not mine. Be happy people!

If you don’t like, don’t read it…. (2011-5-12)

This blog of mine is just that, it’s mine, read it if you like, ignore it if you don’t. I use it to bounce ideas about, ponder things, consider situations and so on. It’s not a potted history, it’s not a considered piece of propaganda, it’s a series of random thoughts, influences and ideas. If […]

Mobile blog enabled! (2011-4-25)

I’ve been experimenting with writig my blog remotely. Hopefully this will show that the code I have access to does work and will appear online. This is purely a test though. If it works then a full entry will follow.

There are some things you can’t change …. (2011-2-14)

This is a strange day to writing this blog entry but circumstances mean that it’s on my mind and so here goes. Recently I wrote a blog article where I mentioned that certain people lack certain emotional skill sets. There’s nothing right or wrong about that of course, we’re all different after all and have […]

A reminder that all things end….. (2011-1-27)

Readers will forgive me if under the circumstances that I don’t be quite as forthcoming as perhaps I should, but a modicum of discretion is warranted I feel. Last Wednesday I was contacted by my step-sister with some very bad news, the loss of a family member. It came out of the blue, no warning, […]

The need to feel significant (2010-10-21)

We cannot stop ourselves from needing to feel significant at some level. It’s a social trait that has evolved within us, and it’s necessary for our survival. So why feeling significant so important? Well not feeling significant causes pain. On an emotional personal level it makes us feel unloved and rejected, sometimes even causing us […]
