Not religious me

ReligionOther peoples religious thoughts are nothing new, they all come and go, stop then flow…

They might carry on, I might carry on or not, who knows?  The way we use and abuse the planet and all who sail on her, maybe none of us will carry on into the future…

I’ve said it before though and I swear by it:    How it’s so much easier to be tolerant of religious people, if they are kind to other sentient beings.

Genesis 1.29

Personally I am not religious, apart from my intention to religiously brush my teeth more than once a day.

 

Dance blog

ImportantI am going to create a separate dance blog.  All the dance references on here will “puff!” disappear and at a later date will “puff!” appear on that blog jiggled about with and improved on.  Why?  because I am creating costumes, props and accessories to sell on etsy and fancy keeping a separate blog just about what we get up to dancing and the creation of the costumes.  There will be much more details and photos (I am currently filling the media with images too).  So, anyone who will be interested in that, well sweethearts look out for Dragonfly Dancers.

Private setting

Of course this blog post will self destruct at some point when it all comes together shortly.  The usual intrinsic blogs of my ramblings will continue to churn out poems, events, random shite etc… enjoy.  I think this little random blog has been great practice of everything from typing speed to spelling and the like too.

P.S. Spot the spelling mistake on the first image!

New cache!

If you know about Geocaching, you will understand the title and basically I hid a new cache and it is up and running this morning.  If you don’t know what I am on about, please find out about Geocaching.  It’s a great way to find out about places you find yourself living in, travelling through, with fun for kids (of all ages) and doesn’t cost a thing.

geocachingI personally don’t use a GPS (Global Positioning System) but Google Earth to locate each cache using the coordinates, then go to the place to find it and sign the log with my grandchildren.

Perseid Meteors

Last night we stopped up to watch the annual meteor shower, just for a little while, just long enough for tired kids to go “oooh I saw one!” and be in touch with the universe outside of their world.

TC4 Shoot Across The Sky

Well the Earth is going to have another asteroid whizzzz pass and this one is named TC4.  Some will talk about how we could prepare {{{BIG MENTAL LAUGH}}} and all I can think of is how it is none of my business when the universe reshuffles my shape and of course I got the need to blog a Japanese Haiku Poem in its honour:

Sayings

Sleep tight“Sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite”

Well, beds in some parts of the UK used to be a frame with rope strung from one side to the other, with a mattress made of all sorts of natural stuff.  Every now and then you would have to pull the ropes tighter.  As for the bed bugs!!! There in posh houses they would put coals in a pan made of copper and rub inside the bed to hear a popping sound of the “Wee beasties” (Northern Scottish accent).

 

AR2665

SmileNow you can take in many ways, the news that the Sun has a dark spot (named AR2665) as big as our planet.  For this ol’ crone, I intend to view it as a possibility to see stunning auroras in the near future.  I’ve lived through blackouts before, so “phuh!” I can bring out the board games and we can play by candle light.

The Truth is: Murder

This week I have a guest blog for you and it’s written by National Dis-Trust. They are a group of voluntary campaigners from across the country calling on The National Trust to save their reputation

Tap the window

tap on the window treeAs you can see, the tree at my sister’s old house used to tap on the window, but my how the tree and the house has grown since!  They must have chopped off the branch that would tap on the window and this has made the tree lob sided.  The tree was far enough away from the house not to disturb the foundations, but look how they’ve built more house encroaching on the tree and probably meaning they will ask for it to be culled.  I wonder if they will find pellets in the bark the hard way from where my nephew put a target for practice?  Guessing they never did an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) when they applied for the extention.

Then

the boat treeI just had a recall moment as I woke:

Climbing the big ol’ oak tree that had split into growing two ways, we liked to call it “The Boat Tree” and play from each side, but thanks to google earth zoom, see it still exists with a heck of a large girth. the boat tree girth increase
