ABC’s Nashville

I have too many words for Twitter!  I am absolutely devastated.  Ok, slight over exaggeration, but I am deeply upset! The a-holes at ABC have cancelled Nashville at the end of this season. WHY????? Yes, it was bad.  Yes, it was corny.  Yes, they have somewhat lost the original spirit of the show.  But it…

The C-Bomb

Today’s thought jumble is caused by Katie Price (also known as ‘Jordan’) parading her son on TV and his (accurate) description of bullies. For those of you who haven’t been subjected to years of this woman in magazines  and newspapers, and also TV, Katie Price started as a ‘glamour model’ (her modeling name was Jordan) and has morphed into a…

Celebrity Injunction

There is a bit of a scandal going on in the English and Welsh media at the moment because they are unable to name the husband of an aging singer super celeb as one half of a married couple in an open relationship, who had a threesome with another couple. Firstly, no one really cares…

Netflix’s Making A Murderer

There is going to be a bunch of spoilers in this, so if you’ve not watched it and you don’t want to know what’s going on before you do, stop reading now!!

Sooooo Messed Up

Sorry… this is totally not a “holiday diary” post, but a “rant and rave” post.  I am mad and need to get the words out my head asap! I’ve been reading the Daily Fail Mail today and there have been a few stories that have made me cross. Firstly, a man has been cleared of rape…

Thinking out loud…

Let me start by saying how shocked and saddened I am with the recent troubles in Paris.  Daesh (yes, I am now calling them this after an incredibly though provoking piece in the international press about linguistics – here) are evil.  There are no two ways about it.

Storming of Calais

There has been another topic in the news recently that has caused me further “humane” style thoughts, which is probably cause for concern as I am not generally the nicest and kindest person you can talk to.  My secret fear is that I am turning into one of those types that will vote for the…

The Lion and the Dentist

Poor, beautiful Cecil. I am heartbroken that this magnificent creature was hunted, tortured, skinned and beheaded.  It’s just absolutely beyond the pale.  I don’t believe hunting is a sport.  How is it a sport when only one party knows what’s happening?  It’s dreadful. This stunning lion was shot with an arrow.  It did NOT kill him outright.  He was tracked for the…

Wimbledon

Apparently I am having a controversial few days. My last post on fox hunting is in keeping with most people’s desire to have the ban stay in place, but not many people would say they dislike foxes.  Oh well.  It’s true and I stand by it.  I also don’t like hamsters, in case you want…

Keep the Ban on Fox Hunting

I do not like foxes.  There, I said it.  They are mangy, mean animals that scavenge and scare domestic animals. I grew up in a town with a very large park, and although foxes were never seen when I was a child, that wasn’t the case by the time I left. Did you know that…
