The British people have spoken! We have shown the country that we have more power than the idiots in the big buildings. This is as important as the vote to leave.
We have said: ‘OUR MONEY IS FOR US’ And everybody needs to take note.
It’s interesting to see the way various areas have voted. Scotland, the coastal areas of Wales and border towns of Northern Ireland wanted to remain. Whereas the midlands and other built up towns wanted out. The built up areas are more industrialised and have many more immigrants.
Don’t get me wrong here. I have no problem with people coming to the UK to work or study. It’s those who wish to live off benefits that get my goat. Those of us who live in the industrial centres are all to used to this.
My neighbour has just been made redundant. He was born and brought up in the UK and has worked all his life. He can’t get full dole as he has redundancy pay. The dole office are making him keep receipts to show them what his redundancy pay has been used for. They want to make sure he hasn’t put it into a secret bank account or used it for a nice holiday.
Some people are on £200 per week while not working. And they’re not British. They haven’t put anything into this country.
How is this fair?
Regardless of colour of skin or religion followed, if you have worked in this country and contributed to society then you should come before others.
If our government had put it’s own people first then this vote may well have been different.
I have two weeks annual leave from today. I’d booked a course on EFT but unfortunately it’s been cancelled. I don’t think they had enough bookings. It’s saved me over £800 – course and hotel fees. However, I was looking forward to doing the course. And it would have been a nice break 😦 It’ll probably be next year before I get the chance, or the money, to try it again.
Yes I watch Eurovision. I’ve watched it every year since 1991. I really don’t know why and I’ve tried to figure it out. You can’t call it riveting TV. We’ve come bottom every year since 1991, so it’s not exactly British pride. But something makes it un-misable TV. So what exactly is the attraction of Eurovision? Why is it a party night for so many people?
Is it the many talents that appear on the show? There are times when I can’t help but ask myself: ‘What the hell…?’ I think the attraction of watching the acts is waiting to find out which one looks the weirdest. Which one is the strangest. Which one has the most outlandish costume. Which one has the strangest dance routine.
Is it the humorous comments of the late Terry Wogan, or the sarcastic, cynical, caustic jibes of Graham Norton? Their narration has certainly been entertaining, and at times annoying. Not afraid to voice their own opinions and blatantly say that they dislike an act. But Eurovision would not be the same without them.
Is it the stage sets? Some of them have been pretty spectacular. Some of them crap. The act from Israel this evening was interesting. It looked like a large cannabis leaf lit up under his feet. (Not that I would know what a cannabis leaf looks like. I’m just guessing.) While the Polish set in black and red reminded me of vampires.
Is it the way so many countries in Europe come together one night of the year to show off a talent? Or what they think is talent.
Is it the voting at the end? This never fails to annoy people. It makes me laugh. I think it’s hilarious. The Scandinavian countries voting for each other. Nobody voting for the UK. Countries ostracising countries they don’t like. Like it or not it’s political voting.
Is it the flag waving, cheering Europeans, screaming for their country representatives in the audience? The atmosphere is palpable. Even watching on the TV. I reckon being there in the arena would be an unforgettable experience.
Is it the fact that it’s European and the UK is part of the EU? Well other European countries in the contest are not part of the EU. For instance, Azerbaijan, Israel, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Australia. Hang on, that one’s not even found in Europe. Could this be a UK ploy to get votes?
Whatever the reason is it’s addictive viewing. One thing is for sure – if we leave the EU we’ll still be in Eurovision.
I recently had to buy car insurance and sat for a few hours scouring the web for the cheapest. After finding the cheapest I then began to get quotes including family members as named drivers. I found that there were a few factors that influenced the price, such as: a) when you want it to start; b) occupation; c)other cars. This is in addition to usual things like no claims discount.
a) Starting the cover at a later date lowered the cost for me. So try getting a quote a few weeks before you need it to see if it works out cheaper.
b) Find your occupation but try different words. My job is in customer service and sales and the words advisor, representative, officer, and administrator, all apply to the job I do, but each one affected the price of the car insurance. So it’s worth checking under your own job description if there are several different words you could use.
c)When adding family members to my insurance the question was asked as to whether they had their own cars and if they were named drivers on other insurance. The two people I wanted to add on both have their own cars and are also named drivers on each others. However, I was not able to tick yes for both options on the application, the answer required was one or the other. So I tried it with both. Using the named drivers option worked out cheaper.
This may not apply to all car insurance providers but it’s worth you spending some extra time trying different things. I managed to save £400 on the original quote. That’s not bad for a couple of hours work.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, both human and non-human.
Mother’s Day originated in ancient Greece and Rome, where people would celebrate the maternal Goddesses at a Spring ritual. For instance the Goddess Cybele, at the festival of Hilaria. The celebrations would include parades, feasting, games, and offerings in temples. Early historians have mentioned these celebrations as early as 250 years before the noted birth of Jesus Christ.
It was only much later that the early Christians began to use the festivals to honour Mary, the mother of Jesus.
During the 1600’s, in the UK, Mother’s Day was then taken a bit further. People would attend church to honour Mary, and afterwards children would then give gifts to their own mothers. Hence, Mothering Sunday was born and is still continued to this day.
So when you give to your mom next Sunday, 6 March, please also think of the Goddesses who watch over us.

I saw on the TV this morning that ‘they’, whoever ‘they’ are, have now said that red meat can cause cancer. Well, this is not actually news. It’s been known for sometime. If you haven’t seen it watch the video of ‘Forks Over Knives’ (forksoverknives.com). It details research done showing the effects of an animal based diet and the effects of a plant-based diet. It’s quite eye-opening. The video is from 2011. However, in the 1970’s China began research on its own population to see what the correlation was between diet and cancer. The research was published in 1981.
The statistics show that countries who have the largest animal based diet also have the largest number of deaths due to coronary disease or cancer, while countries on a large plant-based diet have a lower number of deaths due to these medical reasons.
Researchers have also found that switching to a plant-based diet can reverse the effects of many conditions, including diabetes, arthritis, obesity, cancer, and many others. Now I’m not telling anyone to give up any medication they are on, but it’s been found that a plant-based diet makes people feel healthier and they feel that they have more energy.
In my mind the question is: ‘Why is this only now being said in the media, when it’s been known for sometime?’ The answer is very simple. The meat and dairy industry is a multi-billion pound industry. In the UK the only time we will get to hear the truth of this is when it begins costing more money in the NHS to treat these problems, than the meat and dairy industry is bringing in. After all, money is more important to people in power then the health of the workforce. If one worker dies there is always another to fill the place.
Check this out!
Now this is the type of thing I want to see!
This week we’ve seen some horrible images of babies and children being tear gassed. These people are trying to get away from this kind of barbarism and they’ve walked straight into it. But have they? I mentioned in my last post about the men coming from Pakistan and mixing with the refugees. It’s my opinion that it’s because of these illegal migrants that the genuine refugees are being treated so badly.
Refugees are people fleeing from a war zone, torture, genocide, etc. You’d expect the biggest majority to consist of women, children, elderly, ill, and disabled. But instead what we see is groups of men who look fully able-bodied. In Calais some of them are armed with machetes and are attacking trucks. You’d think that these men would be trying to help their countries get rid of ISIL. You’d think that these men would not be running away but would be trying to help their fellow countrymen.
The media has mentioned that there are women and children travelling alone, and even lone children, amongst the refugees. So it’s even more disgraceful that groups of men are coming from Pakistan to mingle with them. I really hope that they sort them from the genuine people and march them straight back to where they came from.
