No Such Thing As Luck

I’m not a big believer in luck, it is the destroyer of ambition. I know this because it has lurked in my background, encouraging me to be a bit daft-slash-lazy at times in the hope that the one-in-a-million may happen without me having to lift a finger to encourage it. Of course, this never happens. Once you unburden yourself of … Read More

The DNA Results Are In!

Part of this quest of mine to work out a bit more about myself has lead me toward DNA tests. So far, I have had two. The first, from Ancestry.com is to determine what ethnicity I am. I don’t look typically anything and, not knowing anything about ancesters beyond a few generations, I thought it would be interesting. The second … Read More

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

The More Things Change...

I had reason to visit the doctor last week. This is not something I do often, or willingly, but there was a mental issue I wanted to discuss. I had watched a documentary on Adderall, the drug commonly prescribed in the USA for children with ADHD. The doc posited that it was being overprescribed to anyone that pretty much wanted … Read More

Don't Dream It. BE It.

I was never a natural singer. As a kid, I would sing along to my favourite pop songs but no-one ever stopped me in my tracks to comment on how good my voice was. I could sing in tune, but I had no style, no control, no technique. When I decided that I wanted to be a singer, aged about … 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

Phospha-what-now?

Phosphatidyl Serine. Nope, I don’t know how to pronounce it either, but I wanted to tell you about this somewhat miraculous supplement. My battle with depression is well documented and I have often posted or written about supplements that I have found helpful. The three that I always take to help keep my brain ticking over nicely being 5-htp, theanine … Read More
