Not Enough

I just visited a friend's soon to be, gym site. It was a bit of a building site; all half finished floors and wires hanging everywhere. They want me to - maybe - do a few classes. I appreciate that they thought of me. After all, all the people involved are ex sportsman,  one an…

Fools, Damned Fools.

Every race has its quirks. Things that, if you are part of that race, you acknowledge as, if not necessarily an omnipresent thing, something that is recognisable to your race. Each race also has its insults, words that relate to them, their people, in some sort of derogatory way. For the predominantly dominant Caucasian, most…

A Filmmaker’s Kind Of Movie – Locke

I was wanting to watch the movie 'John Wick', as it had not got much of a theatrical release here in Blighty, so checked to see when it was coming to one of the subscription services.

Obviously this notion would be an impossibility in modern society. We generally go through life as a daily lie. Not harmful,…

Those who never suffer depression think of it as some sort of affliction of the lax of mind. A lament of people who cannot be bothered to just snap out of it. The recognised depressive is that of a dour individual, emanating a permanent lethargy, unable to see the reality of their life situation. How…

Ask The Right Questions

There does seem of late, or should I say, since it has been possible to let any and everybody know your every thought, via social media. Unfortunately, some have forgotten the ability to filter. David Osbourne, a barrister and, it would seem, opinionated blogger, has written an article in defence of men accused of rape…
