Pure Anger

There was a Facebook post the other day that asked what the first item of news is that you remember.  My family never had the news on very much.  Mum doesn’t like that kind of negativity in the house.  But I do remember the case of James Bulger.  I doubt anyone in the UK could…

STOP THE SPOILERS!!!!!!!

MailOnline, that means you! I hate you.  You keep ruining the shows I am trying to watch.  I don’t read the articles but the pictures, video clips and the headlines you use tell me pretty much everything I am trying desperately NOT to know. There are some of us who rely on catch up tv…

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…
