SINS OF THE MISGUIDED

SINS OF THE MISGUIDED

Where exactly do these dimwits who purport to know so much about the religious sensitivities of the masses crawl from?” What does Easter (also known as PASCH or PASCHA)  mean to you? The arrival of spring, a long weekend, clock change or the resurrection of the Cadbury’s ‘sickly sweet’ cream egg? Your answer is most likely going to be […]

PSYCHO

PSYCHO

“Each and every one of us has, at some time in our life, wished harm on somebody else yet the majority of us have inbuilt social inhibitors that block  us from acting on that impulse. The psychopath has no such restriction.” If I said the word psycho to you, what images would it conjure up; […]

THE BEAST WITHIN

THE BEAST WITHIN

“Like sharks in the water, they sense their prey, often those who lack in assertiveness and radiate fear.  It’s easy to dislike a bully yet, strangely, it’s equally possible to become ‘tired’ of the victim.” This week, thanks to the magic of Facebook, I reconnected with a long lost friend.

Perhaps you’re feeling a bit sad,  depressed?   Maybe it’s been a bit of a rough week and it has stressed you out?  If the […]

EYES WIDE SHUT

“There isn’t much out there that shocks us; sex, death, violence or love, many of us have (or believe) we’ve seen it all.” On Facebook the other day I remember seeing a flurry of ‘shared links’ about a young man who’d gone missing from his home in St Neots, England.  My stream was awash with […]

WHERE DID THEY COME FROM? POPULAR SAYINGS

WHERE DID THEY COME FROM? POPULAR SAYINGS

They’ve transcended time, passed from generation to generation, evolving  to become part of our every day conversation. But what exactly do old proverbs mean and where did they come from?  I’ve researched and compiled a list of  the most  widely believed origins. Well, good Sunday to you oh discerning reader.  There’s much happening this week and next, with […]
