Dreams can fortell the future - Creative(54,965) Creative Dreams can fortell the future or at least warn you about it ..in my opinion! I once had a dream (1995) about an old school pal who I had not seen since he was 18yrs old (1988).

Being on TV - Not all it's cracked up to be! - Creative(54,965) Creative I have been on TV a few times, but had the most to say and do in a series called 'A Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady'. It aired in 1984 and was 12 episodes long, each episode representing a month of the year. The Director for this series came to my school, had all the pupils stand in a...

Stop Alienating Your Readers--Avoid Writing Bloopers! - Alf Gordon(13,356) Remember Gary Larson's cartoon "The Far Side"? I loved his twist on common everyday occurrences. One of my all-time favorites is the little boy standing outside the Midvale School for the Gifted, pushing hard on the door to let him in. His head is down and he's obviously straining. If he'd lifted...

Toy Boys and Sugar Daddies - Does Age matter ? - Creative(54,965) Creative It is often the case that young men in their early twenties are attracted to older women and young women of that age range quite like the older man. Why is this? I would speculate that it has much to do with the age that men and women reach their sexual peak. Men are supposed to...

Noisy neighbours - can drive a person to kill! - Creative(54,965) Creative I have read many news reports over the years of people so traumatised by noisy neighbours that they have been driven to drastic measures such as killing or trying to kill their neighbour! Here's one from 2006. A man shot two boys (maimed them) then shot himself dead. I once lived...

Being Politically Correct Takes the Fun Out of Celebration - Alf Gordon(13,356) The older I get, the more aggravating being Politically Correct becomes. It's reached the point where a person can't even have some good clean fun without offending somebody. Next week is the beginning of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Historically the Friday before the start of the...

9 O'clock watershed - what a farce! - Creative(54,965) Creative In the UK, we have what is called a 9 O'clock watershed which means that programs aired before 9pm should not have content deemed inappropriate for children.

Internet Dating Sites, do you get what you pay for? - Creative(54,965) Creative Do free dating sites offer the same opportunity to meet people as Dating sites that charge a subscription fee? I have heard from serial online daters that they do note a level of commitment on paying dating sites that may not be present on the free ones. In other words the free sites may...

Attitude towards children and children with attitude - Creative(54,965) Creative Exuberant children run around Finding fun where none can be found Seeing dragons when non-exist Fighting monsters with robotic fists In a garden, room to play No one minds that they play this way But in a classroom where quiet is a must Exuberant children are often cussed ...

The Moment of Truth: Game Show Pays People to be Honest - Alf Gordon(13,356) We all have skeletons in our closets, secrets we wouldn't share with those who are nearest and dearest to us. So what would possess someone to clean out that closet on national television? Sheer determination and strong will? A death wish? The promise of half a million dollars, perhaps? "The...

The Joys of Lego - Creative(54,965) Creative Little plastic bricks used for making things, so small and yet so popular. Why am I blogging about Lego?

A $100 giftcard for answering a few questions? I'll take it! - Female Blogic(337) I often recieve email notices from a couple of places asking me to participate their survey panels. I don't mind doing this, these are reputable businesses. At the end of most of the surveys there is a box to check if I want to be entered into a drawing. Duh--of course I want to be entered into a...

Wot no Father Christmas? - Creative(54,965) Creative My children have received a personal visit from Father Christmas every Christmas Day since they were born.

Abuse in elderly care homes part 2 - Creative(54,965) Creative I wrote recently about the abuse that takes place in elderly care homes and what can be done to combat it, namely the introduction of CCTV to rooms so that staff are too afraid to be abusive for fear of being caught as they are always being watched.

Santa's trademark "Ho Ho Ho" is offensive? Get real! - Female Blogic(337) It seems a company in Australia has decided that Santa's signature line is offensive to women and could scare off the little tykes that visit him. Westaff, a Santa recruitment firm is teaching their Santas a more politically correct "Ha ha ha" and in a softer tone, no less. Get real! A show...
