The Gift

~

I have a gift for my readers this week. All those who have followed my writing endeavours over the years gone by.

Thank you!

It is a very important gift - easily given - but how you use it is down to you. It is a gift that has endured mankind for thousands of year. Indeed, since before the birth of Christ.

I give to you a piece of paper on which you will find my pen. Within the pen there is ink and if you move the pen the ink will flow to the shapes that you make upon the paper. The gift is called writing.

You see, people like the Sumerians... Read More

The War on Christmas

~

Controversy continues to surround the celebration of Christmas and is unearthed in the perspectives apparent when examining government, media, advertising, and cultural issue both at home and abroad.

In recent times this has been restricted to concerns about Christmas themes such as Santa Claus and the giving of gifts as opposed to the real reason for the season professed by Christians, namely the birth of Jesus.

Current controversy is centred in western countries such as the United States, Canada and to a lesser extent the United Kingdom and... Read More

It is coming, it is happening. WAKE UP A police state is a state in which the government exercises rigid and repressive controls over the social, economic, and political life of the population. A police state typically exhibits elements of totalitarianism and social control, and there is usually little or no distinction between the law and the exercise of political power by the executive. The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement....

There are plenty of stylish speed demons for sale, but we’ve put together a list of the sleekest looking cars that happen to have hefty price tags as well. Some of these cars belong on the racetrack rather than the open road, but they’d all be fun to drive. Take a look at these drool-worthy cars and the bank account needed to own one.

MaybachExelero

Topping our charts as the most expensive car is the MaybachExelero. Forget the seat belt, the Exelero comes with a racing harness. The car, which was designed by German students, can hit speeds of 230+ mph. You might have sticker shock... Read More

Publicly Acknowledged, Secretly Celebrated Statue of Theodore Roosevelt

American history apparently began on the steps of the museum of Natural History, central park west. The first thing you see upon entering the steps of the museum, is this bronze equestrian statue. Is it [the Theodore Roosevelt statue is the beginning of the museum's presentation] the beginnings of the American story, as it is the entrance to the edifice of our history? Clearly the artistic sculpture of President Theodore Roosevelt that is situated in front of the museum of Natural History uncovers the possibility... Read More

National Hispanic Heritage Month Celebrated at MOLAA

A bit of background information. Each year Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The Day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of Independence for Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their Independence days on September... Read More

The sound of our footsteps is muffled by patchwork drifts of snow on a gravel track winding past the bottom of carpark stairs. Surrounding hills are covered in local rhododendron; the air icy, the trees tall, rough barked and bare.

Our guide strides ahead – rugged-up for the 10min walk – black puffer coat full length, fur trim sleeves and hood. She stops, adjusts her mittens and points her umbrella. There’s a gap in the trees, and the house appears on cue among flurries of snowflakes that float to rest on a leaf-littered forest floor.

Brenda is a local, and long-time disciple... Read More
