The time will come when greedy, materialistic people will be pitied for the sick, miserable wretches that they are.  They don't have anything except money.  They are empty and can never get enough to fill that void.  There are always more things to acquire, newer things, necessary things...

Now, don't get me wrong, having money is not a problem - needing money for a sense of who you are is a problem.  Loving money and what it can get is a BIG problem.    Most of the problems in the world could be easily solved if money were not the predominant idol - worshiped, prostrated before, obeyed without question.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...  Its called the American Dream because, according to George Carlin. quote- "you have to be asleep to believe it!"

Some years back, when I lived in N. Wales, One of my son's had a friend round after school. I asked if they'd like fish finger, chips and beans for tea? Both said yes with enthusiasm. They sat at the kitchen table looking at football cards or some such thing and I got the spuds from the pantry and put them in a bowl at the other end of the table. When the kid saw I was peeling them he asked me why? i said I was going to fry them as chips and carried on. His reaction was one of shock. He insisted that chips came frozen from Iceland and were cooked in the oven. Obviously he had to concede the point as the tea progressed but his faith in his Mother was shattered forever...


Today we are having oven-poached salmon in lemon juice with seasonings and trout smoked with juniper berrries.This is being made into a fish pie. With the salmon and trout in a rich creamy parsley sauce and covered with creamy mashed potato, served with boiled carrot sticks. I am dribbling like a baby...  Its Dean's recipe this one so you'll have to wait for me to get the details so I can write it up.

WTF is happening?

" OneRevolution Now that The   is Killing unarmed  in downtown , everything is permitted"

" Anita Hunt Official death toll from violence against protests in  rises to 14. Authorities say they're regaining control."

" Anonymous Sweden Priests were arrested when occupy Wall Street tried to set up a new camp" 

" RevoluSec Female protesters brutally beaten with metal poles; soldiers drag girls thru streets by their hair in day of shame" --  

I got these Tweets from Twitter just now. This is the state of things today.  It looks like the whole world is kicking off and being beaten but not staying down. The USA have brought in a law so they can lock up ANYONE, even their own citizens, without arrest or trial if they are thought a 'threat to national security'. No longer the land of the free. Their powers that be don't even bother hiding their contempt for the 99%. One wonders where it will all lead...

But, hey! No need to worry after all. The 'force' is with us.  " Huffington Post Thousands list 'Star Wars' as their religion on this national census..."
