I have been at somewhat of a loss today. What to write?! For the last thirty days I've followed the Discover Prompts and whilst I've taken them to some pretty strange places - I followed a plan set by others to the point that today, I can't think for myself. I've become institutionalised. Blogstitutionalised even! … Continue reading The Dangers Of Complacency

A Good Kind Of Viral – Shall We?!
Have you ever felt really strongly about something that needed to be done? I saw a meme about someone getting a Medal of Honor and it made me think of all the men and women right now who totally deserve that. I just emailed this to President Trump, my NC Governor Roy Cooper and my … Continue reading A Good Kind Of Viral – Shall We?!
Is It A Post?! Is It A Playlist?! Sing Me A Song!
Last year I wrote a Dear Ex blog post full of embedded song links. It was a lot of work! Because I’m as dumb as I look I thought I’d do it again to amuse you so, without further ado, I give you - well, a Social Distancing play list! So here I am in … Continue reading Is It A Post?! Is It A Playlist?! Sing Me A Song!
Who’s Fault Is It Anyway?
You may recall a line from my last blog. I was talking about profiteering in WW2 and I said ‘Profiteering and the Black Market was terribly despised then. You could be jailed or even hung. Even as a collaborator, knowing, but saying or doing nothing - you were culpable.’ That remains true today in many instances, … Continue reading Who’s Fault Is It Anyway?
Are we raising the next ‘Greatest Generation’?
We’re in difficult times. We’re facing uncertainty, food shortages and the very real possibility of losing family members. This last happened during World War 2 and I can’t help but see certain similarities. Profiteering and the Black Market was terribly despised then. You could be jailed or even hung. Even as a collaborator, knowing, but seeing … Continue reading Are we raising the next ‘Greatest Generation’?
Why I’ll Never Use Twitter Again.
Twitter has changed their terms of service to explicitly allow for pedophile-type content to be shared on their platform. Henceforth I shall be referring to them as Shitter because frankly, that’s what they are. The new terms of service explicitly states, “Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are … Continue reading Why I’ll Never Use Twitter Again.
Scumbag of the Year? Probably.
I’m so flippin’ cross. I’ve just made something that’s made my blood boil. I hate cruelty and I despise bullies. People who are homeless probably think they’ve hit rock bottom but they’re wrong. There’s a gutter far beneath where the human filth who prey on the homeless reside. These are usually people who are far … Continue reading Scumbag of the Year? Probably.
The Britchy Bill Of Rights
We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal. ......And that my friends is right where it stops. Since when do we all deserve the same? If you sit on your fat ass all day why do you deserve the same as someone who slogs their guts out? There are … Continue reading The Britchy Bill Of Rights
NY. Where Nothing Is Cheaper Than Life.
There’s nothing more alive than news about death. All I’m seeing everywhere are articles and posts about the Reproductive Health Bill. There are many things I dislike about NY. This is in a league of its own. Abortion is the major cause of death in the US. There are more abortions annually than deaths from … Continue reading NY. Where Nothing Is Cheaper Than Life.
Social Media. The End of Civilization?
I’m so angry. I’ve just heard about the attempted and thankfully failed suicide of a teenager. Apparently they were being bullied online and couldn’t take it anymore. I am thoroughly convinced the Internet is the worst thing that has happened to our children. Cyber bullying, cyber predators, cyber sex, peer pressure, image distortion, to much … Continue reading Social Media. The End of Civilization?
A Day That Will Live Forever In Infamy.
"Yesterday, December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan." This Franklin D Roosevelt addressed the Nation. Today is the 77th Anniversary of the attack on America by Japan. The event that … Continue reading A Day That Will Live Forever In Infamy.
A-Z Of Things I Am NOT Thankful For..
A listers. Who the actual eff groups people like this? Oh you’re not good enough for this group so you go in second best, third best and so on. No wonder these people are so shallow.

How To Make Your Christmas Merry And Bright
This year I shall be carrying on a tradition I started two years ago. Maybe it’s a little early to call it a tradition - but it’s something I intend doing always. The year before last at about this time I was buying chocolate advent calendars for the kids. It’s something they love and I … Continue reading How To Make Your Christmas Merry And Bright
In Honour Of Those Who Sit And Wait.
To anyone who has fought for my freedom, I thank you. Your sacrifices have given me the freedom to be me and I don't - and will never forget that. Some have given time, others have lost limbs. Too many have lost lives. All are changed and I can't begin to convey the respect I … Continue reading In Honour Of Those Who Sit And Wait.
Moving Forward… Together?
I'm only going to make one post election comment. On Tuesday I sat at the polls all day as an election inspector. At about 9am the local Democrat and Republican parties collaborated and brought coffee and donuts to all the polling stations in our town. They worked together and did something good. It was a … Continue reading Moving Forward… Together?

The Week That Was!
Well this has been a hell of a week! I decided to call my son on Monday night and suggest I came to pick him up. He lives in Jacksonville NC and Florence was making a bee line for him. Surprisingly he agreed without a fight so I left at 6am Tuesday morning to drive … Continue reading The Week That Was!
Where were you on 9/11/01?
I was sat in my sun room in England. It was a lovely sunny afternoon. The big two kids were at school and I had a three week old baby in my arms. I'd just sat to watch the news when I fed him when up popped reports of a plane hitting one of the … Continue reading Where were you on 9/11/01?
What Do YOU Do For Your Country??
I want to start with saying this post isn’t about politics!! Yesterday in 2015 was when I took my Citizenship test. I passed and was given a date for my Citizenship Ceremony. October 8th was when I took the Oath of Allegiance and became a Citizen. I also registered to vote. A large part of … Continue reading What Do YOU Do For Your Country??
On Burning the Flag.
Yesterday while I was driving home after shopping, I was sat in traffic at a four way intersection. A big Suburban came hurtling around from the right with lights and sirens and a local fire department logo on its side. Next a white pick up came through the red light with lights and sirens. Both … Continue reading On Burning the Flag.

Shame?? – me too.
Have you ever done anything you’re deeply ashamed of? When I was five or six I went to a birthday party. I went to lots of birthday parties! They all followed a pattern. Pass the parcel, pin the tail on the donkey, sandwiches, sausages rolls, crisps, cakes and biscuits - singing happy birthday and going … Continue reading Shame?? – me too.
I won’t forget.
I was sitting reading a memorial page for a brave man last night. A cop, killed in the line of duty. I didn't know him. I don't know anyone who did know him but I sat here, tears running down my face reading peoples memories of this man who gave his life for our freedom. … Continue reading I won’t forget.
Eff You “Me too”
I read today that people are unfollowing celebrities in their millions.... GOOD!!! I’m so sick of “celebrities”. They’re absolute parasites. Who the tell do they think they are to preach? All this recent stuff with black hoochie mama dresses and white roses... hypocrites. All this hype about the shit they have had to do to … Continue reading Eff You “Me too”
