View from the hill

Today,as I gazed down at the town from my hilltop, I saw a “man” who had inherited about £120,000 several years ago, and, rather than buy his council flat, he’d blown all the money on foreign holidays (which he couldn’t recall, due to the vast intake of alcohol) and wanted to stay as he always … Continue reading View from the hill The post View from the hill appeared first on pjf.

corporate politics – presidential auctions

I was tempted to title this ‘Corporate Democracy’, but that would be such a glaring oxymoron. It is frustrating to witness the ‘relatively’ poor people of the world beating each other to death over whether to vote for Trump or Clinton in the 2nd $billion + US presidential auction. Both candidates are representing corporate interests, … Continue reading corporate politics – presidential auctions The post corporate politics – presidential auctions appeared first on pjf.

Schools Kill Creativity – the remedy …

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. e.g. World Class ballerina (incapable of thinking without moving) was nearly labelled ‘problem student’. She was one of the very few lucky ones that met a education ‘professional’ that was awake. Related: books, creativity, … Continue reading Schools Kill Creativity – the remedy … The post Schools Kill Creativity – the remedy … appeared first on pjf.

Beyond creativity, crafts and hobbies (but don’t stop!)

I’m always keen to encourage people to make, mend, improve, create ANYTHING, rather than be a passive consumer.  But the best aspect of having busy hands goes beyond the product – when one’s hands are busy, the mind has space to be receptive – and this is when the best insights, ideas, resolutions rise mysteriously … Continue reading Beyond creativity, crafts and hobbies (but don’t stop!)

hashtag needed non corporate social media

The very wealthy want ordinary people on zero-hours contracts, mindless, weary, drugged, consumers, in debt and paying them rent for “life” (if you can call it that). They want addicts of corporate “entertainment” and news. Clearly we need to be noncompliant, but what phrase, better still, what hashtag best describes this? #unplugged is no use, … Continue reading hashtag needed non corporate social media The post hashtag needed non corporate social media appeared first on pjf.

diets don’t work – bar one

Painless diet that works It is sad to see people stressing themselves with arduous diet plans for years (decades) and seeing no permanent change for the better. I don’t have the funds for ‘research’ but several observations clearly mean something. Overeating often implies comfort eating or boredom. Very often the two go together. I have … Continue reading diets don’t work – bar one The post diets don’t work – bar one appeared first on pjf.

building a robust hen house on a budget

A hen house I made a couple of years ago. The raised floor is damp proof and rat proof, and it has done a good job.  The uprights are 2″ x 2″, 6″ x 1″ boards for the floor and base, 2″ x 1″ for everything else. The timber is tanalised, except the floor which … Continue reading building a robust hen house on a budget The post building a robust hen house on a budget appeared first on pjf.

musical narrow minds or open?

Music On BBC radio 3 this morning; a discussion about people having to apologise to their peers for liking classical music. In this era of potentially free access to all music, the pigeon holes could even be discarded altogether. Apologising for liking classical music: I recently saw Sting – Live in Berlin … white man’s … Continue reading musical narrow minds or open?

consumerism, happiness and creativity

Consumerism never made anyone happy.  Look at the faces (and bad manners) in any supermarket and you’ll see.  In contrast, making or mending anything always produces satisfaction – try it 🙂  thought for the day:-  there’s lizards, there’s snakes  and corporate greed  the hoardings instruct me  ‘want more than you need’ no thanks … (tags: … Continue reading consumerism, happiness and creativity The post consumerism, happiness and creativity appeared first on pjf.
