Would You Clucking Believe It?

A few months ago, Vikki and I rehoused some ex-battery hens. Since their scrawny, baldy arrival, they have gotten plump and feathery. They no longer list from one tired leg to the other, they run fast, jump up on walls and generally boss the ducks around. And to think, if we hadn’t intervened, they’d be dog food by now. Remarkably, … Read More

Lacking Inspiration

As someone who might loosely be described as an “artist”, I have often found myself going through a creative vaccuum. I am in one right now, which is why I’ve not blogged in ages. There are often many causes surrounding such a funk and, on this occasion, it is that my mind is occupied elsewhere. Sometimes I find things so … Read More

To The Rescue!

We got three new additions to the menagerie today: Po, Phasma and Penguin. They are ex-battery chickens who had reached the end of their useful life so were due to become cat or dog food. Poor little buggers only stopped laying for a brief period as the moult but, any pause in egg production and they’re outta there! What a … Read More

Challenge Your Long-held Beliefs

Something we are seeing a lot of lately is the phenomenon of Cognitive Dissonance. Brexit. Trump. Creationism. Religion. Terrorism. People are not only refusing to accept new evidence or listen to different points of view, they double-down on their own position, regardless of what they are presented with. Take Trump, for example. Most rational people thought it was a bad … Read More

Why Goal Setting Is Important

It’s January 1st 2018, traditionally a time to reflect on the previous year and look back at achievements made. It is also a time to decide what goals you should set yourself for the forthcoming year. But why is this important? If you were on a boat, setting sail on the high seas, you would want to know where you … Read More

Hail, Seitan

I’ll be honest. One thing that I kind of miss since becoming a PBMF is the “bite” of meat. I spent 44 years chewing and chomping my way through all of the chickens and turkeys and piggies and occasional cows. That doesn’t make me proud (just guilty), but you will understand when I say that none of the pretend meats … Read More

Feeling S.A.D.?

Now the clocks have gone back, tens of thousands of people in the UK will start the downhill trek toward Seasonal Affective Disorder, or S.A.D. – as apt an acronym as I have ever heard. I hate to use the word “suffer” – it makes me feel like a victim – but I do experience S.A.D. Over the years, it … Read More

The End Of (Another) Era

The Sunday just passed should be the last time that Vikki and I attend a ComicCon/similar as a seller of sweary merchandise. And it is not a moment too soon. 2008 was when we first started doing conventions. The credit crunch happened and our sales dropped. We needed more of that folding green stuff (which isn’t really green and you … Read More

Accepting Your Limitations

When I was in my early twenties I decided the following: 1) That I was going to win a Grammy 2) I was going to win an Oscar 3) I was going to be Mr Olympia Not only had I decided on those three things, I determined that they would be within the SAME YEAR! Nothing like setting your goals … Read More

What Are You Waiting For?

If you have spent any time pondering moving over to a 100% plant-based diet, I have one question for you: what are you waiting for? Look, I get it. I have lived with a vegetarian (latterly vegan) for coming up 17 years. We had a mutual understanding of eachother, she wouldn’t hassle me to quit meat and I wouldn’t take … Read More
