  • A MESSAGE OF HOPE

    One week had now passed since their search in the old derelict house had returned no positive results although they had got closer to Devane than at any other time over the past year. All […]

  • THE TAUNTING CLUE

    The rusted hinges on the single-leaf wooden door creaked and groaned as it slowly gave way to firm but forcible persuasion. The door became stuck three-quarters through its travel and refused […]

  • It is a sad fact that in our socially connected and enlightened world that is 2021 there are a few among us that have yet to evolve above the mentality of a Neanderthal when communicating their thoughts online. I […]

    • I remember this story. He was just the cutest person making his rounds around his property. I had no idea Neanderthals were being Neanderthals. Another sad thing about this….is that this online behavior is not shocking. We have encountered doses of it here at times. I have seen it at times on Twitter and sometimes I will just respond with a simple “Idiot” IF I even respond. I normally do not allow myself to get pulled into a back and forth. Because we know you can not make sense of them. Maybe a punk kid….maybe a sad pathetic adult. I try not to think too much about those animals because I can easily get frustrated. But I wonder if their accounts can be blocked if enough people complain?
      There must be ways to handle them these days.
      We know this man was a wonderful person with a kind heart…..those punks can’t change that.

    • The Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter are coming under increasing pressure to clean up their acts when it come to abuse. Just recently some black sports stars over here have been trolled by these strange people – some included death threats! There is a growing trend within the population that is getting louder as the days go by, they are calling on these media sites to do more than they are doing right now – we all know they can do more but are they willing to put the time in it will take to monitor their sites properly?

    • I know you have heard about some of the stuff going on in the United States. Looking at what has happened here, and hearing this episode of “nastiness online”,I am not at all sure that some of these people wouldn’t do the same thing in a face to face setting, which makes me even more delighted that I don’t know them and likely will never see them. I certainly hope not, because it is bad enough on the internet, I don’t want people like that in my personal life.

      There are efforts to curtail some of that type thing here in the United States to, with the predictable screams that doing so is a violation of “freedom of speech”. Yes, that is a value in our nation, but saying nasty things just to stir up heartache and fear should not be acceptable under any circumstance in my opinion.

      • There has always been a need in some people to be nasty to others online. They must gain some satisfaction by doing it but I have never understood it.

        • yes, and before that there were some that seemed to “need” to pick on persons in real life (there still are now). I don’t know why that is, but it exists.

  • Hey diddle diddle
    There is no cat or moon
    The sun is bright and shining
    Come listen to my tune
    Bring your bow and fiddle
    And learn to play along
    Together we will fill the grove
    With music, laughter, and song.

    • Love the tree.

    • Beautiful tree, and good poem. I did some poetry at one time for a site that had competitions, sort of, in writing poems or stories based on a word or picture (both kinds) and know how hard it is sometimes to come up with one that works.
      Good work, Jules.

    • Thanks, but I’m a bit hopeless at poetry. But 8 line limericks I can get my head around.

  • I have just been to Epsom Downs Racecourse, one of the many vaccine hubs scattered across the UK where I got jabbed with the AstraZeneka Covid vaccine. Apart from a slightly inflamed area on my arm where the […]

    • Astra Zeneca was the one I wanted when it was still in the testing phase. But it hasn’t been approved over here yet and my mother (retired nurse) recommended Pfizer. So Pfizer is the jab I got. And I should say STAB because like I mentioned ….I didnt feel the initial 💉shot….but after a while I felt like my arm was stabbed or better yet…punched 100 times by Rocky Balboa 🤣

  • As above, then so below
    Not so true right now
    In height I find the solace
    That only a dream will allow
    I know I am not alone
    As I watch the clouds go by
    It’s so safe and serene up here
    In my imaginary city in the sky

  • Something to think about.

    • I have not watched a Nostradamus video in so long. There was a time I could not get enough of him. I remember reading a few books about it so long ago. I think I was a teenager. It was kind of spooky back in the day.
      Amazing how accurate he was 🔮

      • I read a book in my teens by Erika Cheetham called “The Prophecies of Nostradamus.” The book contained all the quatrains which Nostradamus wrote. It was an interesting read which relied heavily upon interpretation more than anything else.

    A new moon, a new year
    My calling remains the same
    I stand upon a spinning rock
    My only claim to fame
    Fireworks have been subdued
    The streets are empty and still
    Our time here is so transient
    With so much space […]

    • BEAUTIFUL Jules ☺️
      HAPPY NEW YEAR to you 🥂
      Hope you had a wonderful safe celebration. Me….well I wanted to watch movies made in the 70’s for some odd reason. I sure know how to party 😉

    • Haha! No celebrations for me this year. However, I too have enjoyed watching “older” films and Disney animations. “Frozen” was my favourite over the festive season and a couple of Hercule Poirot films with Peter Ustinov. It would seem we both know how to party!! 🙂

    • Thanks.

      It’s a pleasant distraction I enjoy doing.

    • My approach is the same across all the pictures I make. I begin with a premise – or scenario if you like. Once the picture is finished I imagine a short story to describe the captured moment. It might take a while but after an idea has formed, and I’m happy with it, I run with it.

    Do I assume you have figured it out?

  • My colours for today
    Strawberry and Pink
    A myriad of tones
    There’s more than you think.
    Darker to the left
    Lighter to the right
    Inside the rising bubbles
    A dancer caught in flight.
