Quite a lot of people are asking about laws concerning Halloween on a Sunday in the UK, with many believing it is illegal. I’m delighted I have friends working in law, and these beliefs are of course ill found. They are rumours made up by cancel-culturing old farts, and bullshitters. It is important to state that devout Christians are entitled to not take part in Halloween, or be troubled by anyone doing it. #Samhain is a pagan celebration after all, and I respect them holding firm. But, please… stop spreading these rumors. TRICK OR TREAT IS NOT AGAINST THE LAW.
Congratulations to our beautiful English Pointer, Libra, who raised £240 walking over 150km for the #GuideDogs charity this month, and a big thank you to all who donated to her efforts.
For the past two years I have been supporting the Eden Reforestation Project, a brilliant initiative which sets about replacing trees and creating new woodland environments. Today, I declare that every 25% of royalties I recieve through people buying my books will be donated to them. To put that into perspective, tree saplings are only £0.08p each, thus every book sold will now plant at least three trees somewhere in the world. Let’s green the land back together as responsible book lovers 🌲🌳💚🌍

… Hang on… I’m sitting in my own shit again like at the start of section one!?!
Uber proud of my beloved English Pointer right now for clocking up over 130km and raising £200 for Guide Dogs charity this month, thats on top of the £105 she raised for Alzheimer’s Society earlier this year
I think my admiration and respect for William Shatner has boldly gone. When criticised by Prince William over his ten minutes in space aboard the Bezos cockrocket, he replied:
“… he’s got the wrong idea. The idea here is not to go, ‘Yeah, look at me. I’m in space’. No, I would tell the prince, and I hope the prince gets this message, this is a baby step of getting industry, all those polluting industries … off of Earth.”
Well old boy, I say you have the wrong idea. Why would spreading across the solar system polluting everywhere with our shit be a positive thing? By the time we even get their this planet will be beyond help. Scotty, beam him up and fetch Bones, he’s beyond rational thought.
Imagine all those tree saplings that cost just $0.12 cents you could’ve planted for that. Your own forest with 833,333 trees. Mind you, you have spent your life with a Deforest I suppose… plenty of Captains Logs cut down for you!
I’m quite enjoying this reality TV show based on a murder created by crime author Ian Rankin. I have just watched episode three and things are hotting up, with the first pair of contestants/detectives having been dismissed. (I knew it would be them going). What’s sweeter about it still, is it’s filmed on the island opposite where we live. They catch the ferry in it from our village. Here are some photo’s from the last couple of times I popped over.
Back in April, I started getting into charity work in a big way. From purchasing badges all the way up to sponsored walks. I’m currently doing an October walk with Libra for Guide Dogs. That said, I updated my blogs banner today. It now sports the logos of the three charities I support on a monthly basis. BulliesOut is a relatively new setup based in Wales. They deal with bullying in all of its forms and every environment, but work with both the victim AND bullying, neutralising the situation and creating moral guidance.
Woman’s Aid is a very dear charity to my lady and I. It is of course, for all victims of domestic violence and abuse, but named after the most common. Thankfully it’s something I’d never have to face being quite capable. It angers me to think women and children go through this kind of suffering in this day and age. Sadly, we know two people like this, but we are enjoying watching their empires of hate begin to crumble and everyone they’ve played innocent to, see their true colours.
The Lucy Faithfull Foundation is also rather amazing, helping prevent child abuse before it has happened. It isn’t hugely well known, and deserves so much more recognition. In fact all three of those charities do. We became patrons of these particular charities as we like the cause, know they do not overpay themselves or hold a vast pool of funds in an account somewhere. (See the shocking facts on the Royal British Legion). Details like this can be found on the government website.
One of my current biggest hates is people who use “I’ve got mental illness” to bail themselves out of acting like a complete arsehole. It seems to be a vogue that has popularized since The Jeremy Kyle Show came and went. The matter is, I work alongside mentally ill people, and workers on all levels that provide support. It’s pretty sound that anybody who suffers from these tendencies will hide them rather than blare them out as an excuse, because they don’t want the world knowing their problems. Similar to those whom threaten suicide. Most people just do it and leave a note, they seldom threaten it first. I have my little ways of knowing just how ‘mentally ill’ someone is. So I warn thee all now, I know BS when I see it so far as this excuse goes.
#Facebook has always been bent, and their community standards very much the same. With this power comes a responsibility, a responsibility which you have now proven to be too immature to wield. I don’t care if you power it up again or not Mark Zuckerberg , this is appalling and youve been sussed. God bless you Frances Haugen x
