Well 2016. No other year has played on my tears so much as far as I can remember and thats saying something. Aside from personal losses the Grim Reaper has harvested a plethora of loved celebrities and childhood heroes. It also saw a chance at parenthood which was tragically ended soon after it had began. At one point I thought id lost Vic as well.
However it wasnt without its good points. My 40th birthday was great, and going to see Knightmare Live in London with the lads was terrific. Had some successful book hunts with Victoria and been to some lovely places geocaching. We have our little kitty Drutt, and ive immortalised my name in several more publications. Maybe I should write my own? 2017 will see much change so I shall ask this at a later date.
Chat soon, Jam
Creative writing doesn’t get any better than this. British author Jonathan Green has now opened a kickstarter for an epic adventure book set in Oz. But this isnt a cover to cover read. You can assume the role of Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman or Lion and decide what happens during the story as choices are given to you.
Illustrator Kev Crossley provides the artwork for this nightmarish adventure with a steampunk twist. Pledging towards the production costs in this crowdfunder will open up a choice of rewards, from a dedication in the book to a special hardback edition. To learn more, click this link here.

It kind of got me thinking how even in this day and age just how bad some people really are. I know and understand what this represents, but then started thinking of all other historical wars where lives have been lost and land has been stolen.
I then began to wonder, ” Hold on… I was only born in 1976. Why the bloody Hell do people dig up things from centuries or even millennia ago, to make the people of today look so bad. I agree our ancestors did some evil things but how dare you lay the blame at my feet this day when I wasn’t even born and neither was you…”
History is important, but what matters to us today is the here and now which we are living in. We have such opportunities to make the world a better place. From simply planting a few trees to bring oxygen to the world and homes to wildlife…to raising money to people less fortunate than ourselves.
It’s 2016! We have made it together this far. You and me and everybody else. Dreadful things are still happening today. Let’s focus on stopping them rather than blaming everyone alive today for things that happened centuries before they was even born. Let’s use our intelligence for once in our fucking history and work together as a planet!!
