Egyptian wisdom

The wisdom of the sands of Egypt:

 

Good things have been coming in threes for a long time. Go and enjoy.

 

 

 


The lessening commonness of sense

Not so common any longer

 

 

 

Now things beep or there are signs telling us everything is dangerous. Go out and use your mind and survive.


Beauty comes in many forms

Is the bee the beauty or is it the flower?

Find your bee...


When a woman suffers she often hides it.

Even the most outwardly-looking complete women have their moments - it's the nature of the beast.

St Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day:

 


At no point in history has our truth been so filtered....

Forget Trump and Twitter.... this is about you and me and how Google, Facebook, Instagram and the rest of the Big Data Corporations are limiting what we see, how it's reported and in general stifling

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Is anyone reporting with journalistic integrity? Is anybody doing real investigative journalism on this? Is anybody allowed to?

DO you know who has all the details of your life and all the information on how you live?

IMAGINE what they do with it and you have NO WAY of knowing how far it is impacting your life! If you think I'm one of those people that should be wearing a hat made of alfoil go watch Netflix's

'THE SOCIAL DILEMMA'

then you'll understand the world's nativity over BIG DATA... 


Christmas time is here once more!

 So this is Christmas…

 

Never fear I have a recipe to help you make it through. Read On…

There are a number of ways you can go.

 You can do this:

 

 OR you can do this: 

                      

Both have merit and there is no judgement either way. Because Christmas is individual, and I must admit I like the creativity of the latter.

Sometimes little Christmas treats like this happen,

 

While we all wait on the big guy to show up

We all need to remember this recipe. 

No automatic alt text available.

I understand it also works well with champagne, 

wine (both red and white), rum, vodka, gin, scotch and brandy 

(any alcohol) although not mixed altogether. You 

need to drink responsibly after all.

Enjoy Christmas, anyway that's the best for YOU! Dare you to… 

 


The current generation and waste

Observations of a Middle-aged Dragon with a Tattoo:

Kids Striking for climate change and dont get me started on Greta

To all the school kids going on "strike" for Climate Change. This from a generation who have been the first to require air-conditioning in every classroom. The first generation whose excessess have been soundly tolerated and even celebrated (the Kardashians are the prime example). Ego and self-exposure are no longer dirty words. Not only a TV in every room for this generation but a mobile phone and laptop or personal computer are mandatory personal accessories.    

Electronic devices rule this generations world and how energy hungry are there manufacture and use? 

Yes… Greta Thunberg 

answer that one...

You smug little brat. You can talk of the current politicians' failure to move on world climate change and you are correct. But I think you need to look far closer to home before you start throwing stones. 

Greta's generation are the most energy consuming, materialistic and obese generation ever. They first generation to not readily walk or ride bikes to school. Instead arriving in monstrous, oil guzzling SUVs and private cars that spew pollutants and choke suburban roads and worsen rush hour traffic and pollution. Plus and this is why this generation are the most energy wasteful; these huge cars rarely carry more than two occupants, for all the energy they burn and greenhouse gases they create.

Greta's generation are the biggest consumers of manufactured goods ever and update perfectly good expensive luxury items to stay trendy. 

Then there's all this waste and plastic proliferation because of this generation of which only one example is plastic bottles. If this generation is so concerned about waste and plastic proliferation how have these things become the hottest collectibles on the planet... One example: Coles little shop minis.


What possible practical purpose do they serve other than to appease marketing moguls who invented them to increase big supermarket profit share. Yes Greta your generation, along with being one of the most wasteful and energy inefficient we have ever seen, are also one of the most gullible and susceptible to marketing and consumerism ever to grace this wonderful planet you care so dearly about. 



CAN YOU SEE THE HYPOCRISY..... 



How about this... Switch off the air-con, walk or ride to school. Switch off your devices and read a book. Make a sandwich instead of buying manufactured fast food.



No. None of this will happen because this generation is self-important, badly informed, and empowered by the adults around them who crave a feeling of having a "noble cause" while they indulge themselves and their offspring in Western luxury and unprecedented quality of life. 




Wake up, grow up and then shut up until you are sure of the facts before your default position becomes protesting. How about really trying to decrease your own carbon footprint by not shitting in your own nest (that's our nest: the planet) instead of throwing shit on others. 

So let’s try not to apportion blame. It’s hard as I haven’t managed it in this blog but how about a pledge to work out how to better our track record together so for the future we are all assured of clean air, water and a fruitful life.

Dare you to…
