SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN?

Posted by Guest Blogger on

By Chris Graham - - - Those who know me will be aware that I’m an atheist. I always have been, at least since junior school, and probably even before that, had I realised that such a thing existed. This was despite the fact that I went to a Church of England primary school… no, my parents weren’t practising Christians, but there were two alternative schools whose catchment area our home fell within, and one of those was in a rough area. Once we moved, a similar situation still applied with the same school as I already attended remaining within...

IS THE WORLD FULL OF GULLIBLE IDIOTS?

Posted by Guest Blogger on

By Chris Graham - - - Are people really this gullible? - Oh yes… I’ll work for your multi million Dollar/Pound/Euro business, and I’ll even pay you for the privilege. Hold on, would you like me to source the materials, make the product, then hand it to you free of charge for you to sell back to me for an extortionate price? … Yeah… of course I will… No problems… I’m an idiot like that. Does all this sound completely barmy?… Of course it does, no sane normal person would do something like that, would they? Well… Yes actually. They...

Posted by Guest Blogger on

By W. G. Warren. - - - I walk every morning.  One might call it a walking meditation.  If my feeble mind isn’t correcting the world’s problems, it meanders aimlessly from subject to subject seemingly out of control until it finally captures a stimulating topic.  A note to those who do not walk or jog:  Laughter, whether out loud or to yourself, makes the walk or jog short-lived.

The “two minute warning”

Posted by Guest Blogger on

By Anthony Mongilia - - - I’m approaching the “two minute warning” of my coaching career. For those who know nothing about American Football, the two minute warning is given to both benches informing the coaches that the clock stops and will start again on the next snap. This is what’s happening to me personally. When you’re young, filled with goals/aims and ambitions just starting out with your coaching career, you never think about the end. Now I’ve heard that whistle blow and it’s time to realize the game is almost over.  The clock is running out. Did you ever...

Bombay Monsoon

Posted by Guest Blogger on

By Rohini Sunderam - - - It was my first experience of that awe-inspiring force of nature – the Monsoon and its annual, passionate affair with the Arabian Sea.  Ms Monsoon flounced in on smoke-grey clouds shot with the gold and corals of a fast-fading sun. Even that celestial superstar turned and ran when Monsoon bore down on Bombay. I took one look at the clouds and decided, “I am not going to let those dull grey clouds get me down.”  Off to Colaba I went, walked into the first Monsoon-is-coming-wala shop and bought a shiny red raincoat with bright...
