Sorry, this is crude but, it cracked me up

A teenager comes home from school and asks her mother
"Is it true what Rita just told me? Babies come out of the same place where boys put their, you know......thing?"
"Yes, dear" replies her mother, pleased that the subject had finally come up and she wouldn't have to explain it to her daughter.
"But then when I have a baby," responded the teenager "won't it knock my teeth out?"

Even a blind Man can tell when he's walking in the Sun


Yeah I'm thinking of you.....To my favorite, I mean you, you mean so much to me.
You're special...I mean when I'm feelin' low, you get me high. I love you, I love you, I love you Boo. 

Yes, I had a Wife, But you the one of my life,
I gotta hit u in the mornin' and afternoon,
I need your light oh that feels so right.
I like when you stimulate, all of my skin, ahhhhhh
I like when you light up the scene, when I'm chillin',
To you my deepest thoughts I'm revealing,

I love you, you love me, it's not a puzzle,
You know I got you covered,
Everytime I hit you, it feels like no other
I have to take a deep breathe, and reminisce........
heaven - must - be - like - this

You the, only, one I gotta get more
You the, only, one, You know the score, 
Yes It's you I adore.

It's your rays and your wamth,
It's the way you make me feel, and thats way real,
And ever since that first hit I can't take you out my life,
And when I 'm in the office, you right with me,
When I'm at home, you right with me,
And when I walk in the dark your right with me
I'll be there for you, cause your there for me,
I care for you.

Fall asleep, wake up in the mornin and you're still next to me,
I'm in ecstasy.

Sunshine that's your name.

Material rather than spiritual

In G.O.D. we trust (Gold, Oil and Drugs)- Mikky Hunter

I Love the internet, Now we all have a voice;-)

The Internet represents a problem for those who want to regulate free speech. Anybody anywhere in the world can put any material on the Internet at any time; it can then be read by anyone else in the world.

British Home Secretary, Theresa May, is to hold a meeting with the executives of social networking firms to discuss the possibility of shutting down social media during future unrest in Britain.

"The British government, once an ardent advocate of absolute internet freedom, has thus made a U-turn over its stance towards web-monitoring".

In February, Cameron had urged Egypt and other North African nations to allow freedom of expression after they tried to restrict the operation of social media, which played a key role in organizing and reporting anti-government protests.

All these measures by the British government come as the British media accuses the Iranian government of blocking access to the Internet and violating freedom of expression.

'We may wonder why Western leaders, on the one hand, tend to indiscriminately accuse other nations of monitoring, but on the other take for granted their steps to monitor and control the internet".

Cameron's suggestion to block social networking websites smashes basic concepts of freedom of speech in the West, which always takes the moral high ground in criticising the reluctant development of internet freedom in developing countries.

Oh Sh*t! It's gone Dark - Relax, Calm down, breathe in, breathe out.......

Everyone of us has our own little life story to tell that has brought us to the point of  "Now".
There are a large number of us that did not have idyllic childhoods, or we had broken difficult relationships and  all manner of just real testing or weird stuff happen during our lives. but, keep in mind these experiences dictate how we develop through life in general.

My belief is that these tests as it were are put there to help us develop and become the person we are today. So, in short there's a reason why we go through these things  - it's because they are a way of teaching us, and challenging us, and pushing us forward to become who we are.
And sometimes that means you end up in the dark even if only momentarily but that's nothing to panic over.

I often tell myself  "It’s OK to be in the dark sometimes.  It’s not OK to forget that everything is going to be OK.".

No matter how dark it is,  all it needs is one candle to make the darkness go away & it doesn't matter how much darker it gets it cannot put out the light.

I was taught by my Brethren a long time ago "to seek the light" and ever since then I never underestimate the power of a little light.
As we all know the road to transformation can be a long ardous and difficult one but a small flame can grow bright enough for you to change your situation.

Nick Clegg: "Of course we need to learn lessons from the riots."

A friend sent me this post which really struck a note with me - 4 points that are although short are very  precise and which really capture a lot of what the problem is & some advise on resolution.

Here's my list to help Cleggy on his mission:

1. Pursue the looters in banking and financial institutions with the drive and determination that you apply to those tearing up our streets.
2. Encourage more ethnic diversity into the police force.
3. Understand the 'youthful stupidity' of some rioters in the same way that Boris and Dave set fire to toilets and mashed places up when they were young.
4. Redistribute wealth PROPERLY. Yes there were opportunists but we should always remember that Nothing from Nothing is still Nothing. It's is obscene to have ghettos in 2011.

Just a simple question?

I wrote with a Brother today & he kind of knocked me with a really simple question "Love, Peace, Understanding and Forgiveness, Why do we find it so difficult?".

Psychopaths, Opinions, a sense of Shame and Days of reckoning.

Living in many different countries means that you get to pick up some words that you need to use when buying stuff or eating in restaurants.

One of them is "Reckoning" Dutch people when paying the bill in a restaurant ask for "De Reckoning" which always struck me as funny as in English it is also used for bill payments but it can also be defined as retribution for one's actions (esp in the phrase day of reckoning).

Over the past few days I have watched shocked and outraged with horror at the scenes of burning, looting and violence on TV often shouting at the screen saying  "nO, No, NO"!. And now I see reports just coming in saying a 60 year old Man who was attacked by the mob has died. Why? because he tried to put out the fire.

Is this what we as English people have become that so many of us, our fellow citizens can do this - I read one article that the BBC had called it the UK riots but guess what The Welsh assembly & the Scottish parliament it seems also shared my condemnation of these events & said "No, WAY!". These are English riots, the shame is yours.

A leader in technology, a poineer in many fields, a major financial player. We define and set certain standards that are respected the world over, yet we can't inject decent moral fibre in to our very own society.  It's gone very very wrong.
How do you install standards in these people, morals or even just make them give a sh*t! How do you fix a cross section of society that doesn''t even know how to treat itself ?

My Mother and my Father both installed in my siblings and I a sense of pride to be English so the flag of St. George would raise a sense of  passion within our chest.

"Those are your colours" they told us.

Some time ago a Slovak friend upon first meeting me once said to me "Your not English!" I said "What!" he quickly replied "But You don't wear Football shirt".
These events in my mind will only serve to cement these opinions of the English in the eyes & minds of the rest of the World.

I'm absolutely certain that he would share my sense of shame at what has happened, to see the Youth of England rise up in terror and rip her apart limb by limb from within!
It can be said and I will be the first to admit that maybe it does sound a bit dramatic but then again, it also never ever crossed my mind that one day I would stand and be ashamed of my heritage and country.

At this point I see people trying to form an opinion on the insane, crazy past couple of days but, I don't think you can really assess it yet.
So, I think that although these rioters maybe facing their day of reckoning there will also be a day of reckoning for Mr Cameron & his ideology. I say ideology as I don't want to be political in the usual sense (left/right) as this is due to successive Govt's that have either ignored the problem or adopted policies that failed to address issues. In the words of a friend of mine  "You & I both know how things work and happen but these fools on all sides either dont care, dont know or want to stay ignorant".

I hear opinions that society in general is to blame but then even if that is true, I have always been led to believe that only a Psychopath doesn't have a sense of right or wrong and perhaps that was also part of it - I still can't believe what happened it was like watching mobs of Psychopathic lunatics that had escaped from the Asylum and all hell was suddenly let loose on the streets of London.  In retrospect I think I can safely say these days of reckoning have been brewing for years.

Maybe its still not over and will just calm for a while but, think about this what happens if it is found the Police did carry out some atrocious act whilst apprehending a criminal "Let's see what happens 28 days later eh?!" as they say.

Conspiracy in 3 simple steps - thesis, antithesis and synthesis.

Hegelian Dialectic.

The first step (thesis) is to create a problem. The second step (thesis) is to generate opposition to the problem (fear, panic and hysteria). The third step (synthesis) is to offer the solution to the problem created by step one: A change which would have been impossible to impose upon the people without the proper psychological conditioning achieved in stages one and two.

As to what the synthesis will be I don't know but the police say they can't cope, police stations on fire......The Hegelian Dialectic.

Previously, You & I would not even imagine the Army on the streets or Rubber bullets being used not to mention the draconian Security policies that will follow & linger but, now we & other like-minded folk are now willing to consider it as a solution.

London's burning, London's burning, Fire, Fire.

Tonight the World watched as England burned.

Everybody asking "How could his happen?". 

Why so shocked when we've already seen riots, protests & demonstrations almost immediately after David Cameron came to power riots began due to cuts in education & services. 

Then it was announced Policing was to be cut & at the time none of the Mayors staff imagined how this would come back & bite them. Yes, the police were overwhelmed but perhaps there was also a sense of  "Stand back & let it happen when it's over we will tell them told you so!".

Now while all the politicians are on holiday - London's on fire for two consecutive nights & David Cameron only now decides to cancel his Italian holiday in Tuscany. We have to wait for Parliament to reconvene - your having a laugh! 

There will be opinions on this for months - a consultive committee (A huge budget assigned probably) it will come with some recommendations which will be watered down then thrown back forth and the Government will continue to ignore what it really is and just keep focussing on the wrong things.

Last night we witnessed that something in society has changed & it can never be the same, that's sad. I ask myself is it the fault of older generations, parents, etc?

These people seem to have no scruples at all.

England is under siege being ripped apart from within by its own disenchanted youth & the problem is that the real issues will be buried under the violence, burning looting that have taken place. Watching TV its all about the theft & looting they don't even mention the generation of dispossessed people who are angry at the growing divide between rich and poor, No job's, No education, No opportunities, a bleak future and a Governement that is out of touch. But, lets also not forget that this turmoil is good for the gangs to do their "business" as the Police once this has all died down will withdraw in order to avoid more clashes.

A friend of mine wrote this about it:

"We have created a society that only values money and acquisition and then people wonder why a generation who are dispossessed, who perceive themselves as being denied legitimate means to enjoy a slice of the consumerist cake, are mindlessly rioting and burning and looting... We need to remake the fundamental values of our society because the toxic events of tonight are the inevitable symptom of a system that is rotten and decayed".

For one moment I thought Yes, I think this statement is totally correct but then I turn my head see events unfolding last night as it spread like a virus, a virus of violence, burning & lawlessness, pensioners, defenceless people being attacked seeing people jumping from burning houses, watching buildings & local businesses set on fire. 

In the end we both agreed it's very difficult in marrying the two together & finding it acceptable - I'm just not  comfortable with it on any level.

Thinking of home & things that were

​Sometimes for a brief moment I miss London. I miss England that sceptered isle, in a silvery sea under the colours of St. George.

But its funny that whenever I do think of all the stuff I miss it's as if i'm stuck in a Timewarp - as a lot of them disappeared 10 or more years ago.

To some a beacon of democracy/​bastion of ideologica​l freedom, crucible of empire, cradle of class oppression​.

But to me it's The Land of the Magna Carta, King James Bible, ​Freemasons & the Craft, The NHS & the welf​are state, Curr​y Goat, Shepherds Pie, Marmite, Fish & Chips, Steak & Kidney pie, Nando's, The BBC, Mr Bean, The Sweeney, Dr Who, The Good Life, Channel four news, Earl Grey Tea (I'm always asked would you like it with milk!) Chocolate Minstrels, The Tube, a melting pot of different cultures, Red Buses, West Hampstead, T​rain spotters (this one I just can't explain), Rainy days, f​ooty fanatics, bowls, green village lawns, Hipp​ies, Dad's old Zodiac & drives to Brighton, Stonehenge, Summer music festivals, Camden Market on a Sunday, Sainsbury's, garden​ers, pigeon​ racers, Cri​cket & part-time Morris Dancers, 11 O'clock closing time.

To some it's Albion others it's Blighty but above all it was home.

A big, fat, huge, enormous smile on my face;-)
