You’re never too old to learn something new e.g. How to block an IP address.
Do I have to follow traditions? No I thankfully don’t. Any one of us can pick out ones that make sense or make some new ones of our own. Personally I can see the logic to have the tradition of using up the contents of the larder over the winter and restocking it during harvest. Yet not being a sheep I find it increasingly difficult to follow the crowd and get excited at the prospect of eating the body of a violent death whilst pulling a cracker. Anyways, my son a few years ago, created a lovely new tradition:
Baked Beans on Toast Day ~ 25th December.
Some would say you wouldn’t keep a child in those ~*#! conditions, so why keep an animal of equal intelligence in that?
- Firstly, with the right conditioning since birth, people presume ~*#! for some sentient beings as acceptable and believe it.
- Secondly, I don’t need to believe it, but see people paying for body parts that have been kept in ~*#! conditions, because “Where there was ~*#! there was brass”.
- Lastly, I can believe it, as some would keep children in ~*#! conditions, because hidden away until found, some people have e.g. Genie a 13 year old girl found in 1970.
Yep, done that, joined a cult thinking it was the way to a peaceful, loving and fulfilling life, left and here I am not wearing a burning scroll above my head saying “Going to Hell!” LOL or should that read “mwahahahaaar”. Idiots to think and then act in such unkind, cruel and shaming ways to a child of the universe (a friendly place once you get used to checking out and questioning all the negative perceptions thrown at us).
I wonder if anyone out there remembers calling little me as a child by my nickname:
I think now I like it, but at the time I didn’t, but that’s life and how childhood flows into adulthood. I can see how my surname back then was so easily converted and now see the beautiful of cauliflowers.
I enjoyed the company of my colleagues last night, I danced happy and participated vigorously. Only how can I resolve the food issue? I refer you to my other blog and the post called: Held out hope again, oops! Do I name the establishment? I can’t remember if I named the other one of the previous years. They must know by now that they lost a whole groups valuable annual booking…
Who cares? Who needs to know? What next?
Totally enjoyed putting all these annual things down and putting a humorous label on it.
p.s. Stop the spelling mistake on the image.
I get me now,
I’m a gleaner of kind thoughts,
This world of humans gather most of the kind thoughts unto themselves,
I gather and glean some of the left overs for animals,
As they really seem to be the poorest of the poor
And need all the kindness they can get.
Today am I telling you two things I hope you find helpful:
- Try not to forget your humble packed lunch, but if you do forget, you can be like many others on this planet and go without that meal. You do not NEED to buy expensive take away. Going without food occasionally won’t kill you, in fact it is scientifically proven it does you good.
- Against all the odds, be at peace with yourself and your life. Maybe start to be the one that enjoys washing up for it’s meditative quality, during the “Don’t worry about the financial strain, let’s buy with money we can’t spare, to be like everyone else onMASS!”
‘A helping word to one in trouble is often like a switch on a railroad track … an inch between wreck and smooth-rolling prosperity’ —Henry Ward Beecher
Others will ignore advice and that is their business. Others will misunderstand and that is their business. I don’t like this pressure people are putting on themselves this stupid time of year. Don’t buy anything unnecessary. Don’t buy for others, especially things you have no idea what they need. If you have spare cash, look to the family member that might NEED it. All this avarice isn’t necessary, please don’t be pulled into it, because you are all beautiful, kind, loving and loved, sentient beings, so job’s done and no need to give a brass monkey’s ponsey yetta hat!
An item to include in the shopping list for those that forget things, is the 60 minute timer you can just plug in a socket, then plug an electrical item into it. You can twist the dial to set it and when you forget the item it will switch off when the timer is up (say 10 mins). I’ve recently bought a couple for £3 a pop, from B&Q in Llanelli, called the DAILL 1 Hour Mechanical Timer. So if you have someone or are someone with a little bit of forgetfulness occasionally or kids that leave things on, these can be reassuring and can save on the leccy bill.
