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

What’s Your Excuse?

Like millions of people around the world, I did some gym work today. Leg extensions and squats, to be precise. My gym is a bit different to most, however, as it is outside. Now, if you live in California or Barbados or some other gloriously warm, hot and dry climate, this would not be any kind of deal. In fact, … Read More

Is It Really THAT Hard To Say Sorry?

The past couple of weeks have really put my new-found ability to practise mindfulness in frustrating situations under the ultimate stress test. For a start, there has been an ongoing issue with my car. One of those annoying intermittent faults that you cannot track down, so the only solution is to gradually replace the most likely culprits until you hit … 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

Trick Or Mistreat

It’s the night before Hallowe’en as I write this. It is a special time of year for me, mainly due to the memories that it conjures up. You see, it was around this time of year, several moons ago, that my band – SPiT LiKE THiS – first encountered a whiff of success. One drunken afternoon, several months prior, I … Read More

17 Years Not Out

Vikki and I had our 17th anniversary on the 18th October. She was just 17 when we got together (nearly 18 – her birthday is on 23rd), but that small fact means that I have been a part of her life for HALF of her life. That is crazy. What is crazier though is the fact that we have made … Read More

Musical Nostalgia

I was in the car today when “Kings Of The Wild Frontier” came on the radio. Adam Ant was my first musical hero, I thought he was awesome. I guess I was about 8 when I started buying his singles. Other bands from that era that impacted me in a big way include the Human League and Frankie Goes To … Read More
