Chilling out

Chilling out

One very helpful life skill is to be able to chill out. To be calm in negative situations and not overreact about all kinds of things. Or invent big, big problems in your mind – or create them in your world as you drag other people in through arguments – by making mountains out of molehills. By being able to chill out when needed to you will: H

usurped control of society

The problem is that the business community, filled with sharks, conmen, and criminals, have usurped control of our society for their own benefit. Sure there are honest businesspeople, but stop and consider: how many laws exist because businesspeople cut corners and endangered lives, put out a deadly product, used a toxic process that contaminated t
Edible Gardening

Edible Gardening

Gardening is a fantastic past time and spending time outdoors is a great way to keep mind, body and soul in great shape. Planting from scratch is incredibly rewarding and you’ll be treated to a riot of colour in your garden come summer. If you are interested in food and cookery then you should try edible gardening – there’s no need to have an
A dystopic future

A dystopic future

I suspect that much of what is happening now, and what is coming, would already be considered dystopic by some of our progenitors. There will never be adequate sharing of wealth, and so - as in bygone ages - a few live high, many live very low, and the remainder are scattered in-between. The circumstances of those living desperate and deprived live
Birth of Christianity in Scotland

Birth of Christianity in Scotland

Christianity reached the British Isles through Roman colonisation in the first and second centuries AD and continued within the tribal and cultural mix after the Roman withdrawal in 410 AD. There is archaeological evidence of a Christian presence at Whithorn associated with Ninian, a shadowy fifth century figure about whom little is known. More inf
Rats in the compost

Rats in the compost

Tips for avoiding rats in your compost Rats are shy creatures and don't like being disturbed. A well-kept compost heap, visited regularly, will be less attractive. A swift kick every time you pass wouldn't go amiss either! Try to keep the contents of your bin actively composting (with the correct mix of carbon- and nitrogen-rich materials and water

Social media overlook

Television has been censored and controlled far more rigorously than the printed word for decades. There's no reason that this can't be done for social media. Of course it will be more complex and difficult, but it's not impossible. Instead of politicians and legal experts jumping through hoops, force the tech companies to do it. They will knuckle
Positive impact of refugees

Positive impact of refugees

During World War II, millions of refugees fled their homes and were displaced across Europe, central Asia, and the Middle East. In September 1939, Nazi and Soviet armies invaded Poland, resulting in countless individuals being deported or “resettled”—forcibly exiled to work camps in Siberia and Soviet central Asia. There is a story of a large
Dreams of a Yurt

Dreams of a Yurt

Dreams of having a Yurt There's a certain romanticism to building your own dream home. Sure, the American dream used to mean Suburban bliss with a manicured yard and the 2 car garage, maybe a second vacation home. For certain folks, this is just a little too boring. Your dream yurt project may have arose out of necessity, conviction, curiosity, dar

Slaves to work

Joy Homemade cooking does it for me, especially when I’m around my family or friends. The kitchen is nice and warm and the smell of food being made and my mind being engaged does a lot to lift my mood and keep me safe. The added benefit of good food made with my own hands is a bonus. I take in hotpots to work now with plenty of vegetables cooked
