NEWS From Over The MOON
All of us love good news stories and especially when we need one ourselves. So, this section is about exactly that kind of story - a good news story.
They are stories that lift us up - make us feel good about the world - stories which place a warm glow in our hearts and a smile on our faces.
These stories may be about anything - including, a person’s good fortune, the rescue of an animal, or someone’s extraordinary act of kindness. They each have the power to make us feel, quite Over the Moon!
The Picture So Far: Part 2
I told my son nearly three years ago now, that we are living in a sci-fi movie. The only difference being that instead of the movie ending in 90min – leaving us all entertained – even a little disturbed – this movie isn’t ending.
We are living in the real world and what is going on in our real world is also plainly real. It is very sci-fi-like – in fact, like a sci-fi movie of the worst kind - and one which if allowed to continue unchecked, is NOT likely to end in a good way. But the ending of this movie is by no means certain yet. It appears the People are the ultimate screenwriters and the ending is theirs.
To Be A Human - Draft Definition
I’ve had this in mind for some while. It’s the idea of drafting a Blueprint of a person’s vision of what a human is – or maybe should be. I could say it’s my vision, but that’s not the point. I’d like to share the idea and have you add to it.
So here I have listed some of the basic attributes which many of us might already have in their own minds. I’d love it if you cared to add to it – either by adding your thoughts to the list I’ve started here or adding them to your own version. Maybe at some point we could have a discussion on the subject with a view to agreeing what we all see and what we all want to be.
David Bowie, Is That You?
A lot of celebrities who are no longer with us are believed to have faked their deaths. It’s only natural to want to believe that Elvis Presley, Prince and David Bowie are still alive, especially as they all died young – or DID they?
In this article, I’ll explore the intriguing theory that David Bowie didn’t really die in 2016 - instead, the day after his supposed death, he did a media interview - as a music executive called Jack Steven. Once you see the resemblance between the two men, you can’t unsee it [except when you can...] This is an intriguing theory - but the truth is even stranger!
Banker Wins - Again!
Recently, the UK gov’t was found guilty of a serious breach of the law. No punishment was issued. So what’s the big deal? you ask - it’s business as usual. Yes, indeed - but the REASON the gov’t wasn’t punished is interesting.
Interesting? Perhaps it is better described as a sting. The state getting away scot-free with a serious crime of this nature is further proof – as if we needed any - that we’re living in a post-justice world. If anyone else were found guilty of the same offence, they’d have been fined £10 million. The secret - as it is for any successful sting, hustle or con trick [take your pick] - is the set up.
