This week in the trenches
I might take some photographs of historic vehicles on Sunday. For the benefit of local people that will be in Walsall Arboretum (extension). I hope I can park my car. I went there when the circus was there and took a few photos. Anyway, I wrote half a dozen blogs on this site this week and some on a zillion ideas too. That site is slowly getting more readers, but it is slow. Please take a look at it and comment, tell me what you think. I always need new readers and so I hope you will also share with your friends on Facebook and other social media sites. I hope everyone enjoyed last night’s opening ceremony for the Olympics. It’s costing enough…
Olympics – love it or hate it?
My blog yesterday was Olympics – love it or hate it? Should we waste money on the Olympics when there are children starving in the world? Today’s oppressed children are tomorrow’s fanatical terrorists. Today’s deprived children are tomorrow’s criminals. Today’s starving children are tomorrow’s dead children. Not to worry, it’s not your kids is it?
Thrifty Thursday | School Holidays
On Thursday, I did my thrifty blog and this week it was school holidays advice for families who want free days out for their kids. No not oppressed, deprived or starving kids… Take them out or they could end up in front of the telly brainwashed into believing Coca Cola is drank by athletes and will make them run faster. It might give them the runs if you drink it too cold, but it won’t make them athletes…
How to write a novel | places
On Wednesday, I continued with tips on how to write a story or novel. As usual no one offered any suggestions about how I could improve my little story. Nick meets Lily the American and forms a love-hate relationship. I need some lines, preferably funny ones, for Lily.
Neodigital Art | Angles and depth
On Tuesday as ever I continued my Neodigital Art series of blogs with more photographs. I used photos of the Oak House, a Tudor manor house. Check that out if you missed it. I have some nice pictures now the rain has stopped!
Anecdotal beliefs was my usual psychology blog. I didn’t use the word psychology because it seems that word is too common on search engines. I do want people to find my blogs. People do tend to believe all sorts of rubbish and they pick them up by listening to hearsay.
Summer Sunday Ramble
I had my usual ramble and rant on Sunday, about anything that came to mind and tried to make it amusing, informative and entertaining:
A global super-rich elite has exploited gaps in cross-border tax rules to hide an extraordinary £13 trillion ($21tn) of wealth offshore – as much as the American and Japanese GDPs put together – according to research commissioned by the campaign group Tax Justice Network.
The rich get their money from poorer people and then stash it away overseas. If the money only flows from poor to rich and not rich to poor, the economy won’t work any more. If I was rich, I think I would ask a poor person to mow my lawn so some money flowed back to the poor. If they couldn’t mow my lawn for a tenner, give them a couple of quid anyway… Not everyone needs to work, especially if they are sick or disabled. We are in the 21st century, we need to work smart not hard and we need to use technology to do most of the work. The days of hand powered lawnmowers are nearly over, we now have technology to make it easier and quicker. Those that can entertain us should be willing to do it and enjoy doing it. They shouldn’t expect untold wealth, private islands, legions of fans and knighthoods. They should also retire gracefully when they’re past it!
