    You’ve definitely come full circle. . .welcome back to Thoughts!

  • 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 […]

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

  • 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…[Read more]

  • 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.

  • Just got mine.

    Fingers crossed I feel fine at the moment.

  • 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 🤣

    Welcome to Thoughts.com, Jake Mendez Jr.
    Every social media site has terms and conditions in place which their users are expected to adhere to. Here at Thoughts we have a “One Love Philosophy” that we ask all our members to observe. Please familiarise yourself with this philosophy.

    One Love Philosophy

  • This is quite a lengthy documentary series which first began airing in June 2016.
    It has 7 seasons, and 32 episodes in all.
    So there’s much to see if you want to watch the entire series.

    There are several DIY shows which come and go in the UK and one of the stand-out programs is called “Grand Designs” – a program which follows the…[Read more]

  • Thankfully, here in the UK, being a much smaller country, the logistics are not as complex as those in the States. There are lots of local ‘hubs’ being established to administer the vaccine locally so people will not have to travel miles from their residence. The aim is set these hubs within a 10 mile radius – or less, so people can get their jabs…[Read more]

  • There’s much one can read into this film – allegory or metaphor, but I wouldn’t consider it a horror film. 11 people all sat around a table feasting on what will become their last supper. The biblical last supper was attended by Jesus and his 12 disciples. Biblical connotations?

    The diners’ appear to be eating several endangered species with…[Read more]

  • Sorry for your loss. Every death from Covid is tragic and more so when you knew the person on a personal level.

  • I’m also considered too young for the vaccine right now, but, I am also considered a medically vulnerable person so come mid February I should be offered my first dose.

    Fingers crossed.

  • Thank you sir. . .I do try and make my pictures interesting and pleasing to the eye.

  • I think everyone dreams of a time when Covid goes away forever, but the realist in me doubts it.

  • All this for one moment of national insanity.

  • This was a spontaneous response to the news that over 1500 people died of Covid today – a daily record in the UK.
    I was thinking of places to escape the pandemic.

  • 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
