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…

Random thought…

The Daily Mail keeps telling me that people are models.  There is the girl who was 32 stone and lost half of that (bloody goody job to her, btw!), and now she is a model.  There is the pretty chick from Jeremy Kyle (who was attractive but not as pretty as the comparison against past…

Gents, where have you gone? 

It’s time to have another rant. Today’s subject: dating. I don’t know why I have a bee in my bonnet today as I haven’t been asked out on a non-tinder date for a very long time, but even they are just ludicrous. Where has the Gentleman disappeared to? I am a lady (most of the…

#LoveWins

This Friday, the US Supreme court announced that same sex marriage is legal in all States in America.  Those who currently have bans in place, will have them lifted.  There was only 14 states that it was illegal but that is 14 too many in my mind. Why, as someone who is straight and English,…

Bit of an epic rant……

So, here’s the thing…  I have a nut allergy.  It doesn’t appear to be as severe as it once was, but I am not going to test that theory out by ingesting any!  I may however go back and get further testing as it’s well over 7yrs since I last had it done and it…

Ramadan 2015

Ramadan Kareem to you! It’s that time of year again where the Muslim world uses fasting, prayer and contemplation as a way to remind themselves of the blessings they have in their lives.  A time for kindness and charity, and forgiveness. I wrote about it in the past, but in case you don’t want to…

Elevator Etiquette

Elevators, or lifts, are an evil of life when you live in a city of high rises, but you can make the ride more comfortable for your fellow travellers by: 1.  Not wearing too much cologne.  You do not smell better than the BO guy.  You smell just as offensive. 2.  Not shouting into your…

#SaveNeil

Oh my land, I just want to give this poor man a giant hug. I also want to give him some advice. Which I will do, after an explanation for all of you non-Dubai people! #SaveNeil (which is how everyone is referring to you, btw)  is a guy who lives in Dubai, and who was…

O’Cacti – A much over due update!

My apologies for having been away for a while.  Epic vacation in South Africa and general January Blues are to blame! However, as requested: I did manage to get hold of the general manager.  The idiot whom I had emailed the first time was the floor manager, whatever that means.  Anyway… long story short… they…

NBC’s The Voice – Top 8

It’s that time of the week… My catch up of The Voice! And, I have just found out 3 people are going home! Eek! So, here is my mindless ramblings!! Ryan Sill Stunning vocal. Just perfect. I don’t think people quite understand how high that was to hit perfectly in full voice, not in falsetto,…
