Bet you thought we'd died and gone to heaven?

. . . Well, we haven't. Don't think they would have me anyway.

It's been a while since I posted (understatement of the year so far). Honest, it really has been busy; Plus I kept making excuses, always something more important to do etc etc.

Have a read of the new 'quote of the day'? I'm telling you those lyrics are stunningly good. What a wake up call they are.

We had a talk a few weeks back by the universities' Chancellor, Baroness Cox. I recorded the audio but so far haven't had time to work out how to post it up on the Net. Anyway, it was powerful stuff too. Had me in tears by the end. We really do not realise how good life in this country is. We really do not realise how fortunate we are. . . Listen to this (from the talk): "At least 27 million (yes that's 27,000,000) men, women and children are enslaved today, ranging from prostitutes in London to indentured workers in Burma. The statistics of modern day slavery are shocking but behind each statistic is a human being - a man, a woman or child; and behind each human being there is a family and a community that (is being) devastated or destroyed". Use the link behind the Title if you want to know more.

Nice to be back folks!
