When new cars TV holidays leave you empty

When Albert first renovated an old car - when he was still in his teens - he felt an immense sense of freedom. Even then insurance was a ripoff, so he only used it for late summer - July through September. The only experience that matched it for liberty was later, when he lived "off grid", as it were, in a caravan - no rent, no services, close to nature. Slowly, some would say inexorably, the

Where inspiration comes from, and how to destroy it

It is amazing how much clearer the world looks from the top of a hill (or a castle), and it strikes me that both locations are symbolic for that reason. I was particularly thinking of WALKING up a hill, but just walking has the desired effect, provided it is far enough from the madding crowd ... Trying to solve a problem whilst walking seems a bad idea for me - I'm likely to trip over my own

Heaven and Hell - Community Values. Diary of a non-feeding Vampire – (part 3x-b)

Heaven and Hell - Diary of a non-feeding Vampire – (part 3x-b) Imagine, if you can, taking a dog for a walk – having done so, on and off, for over 350 years. Sometimes your own neighbourhood can seem like paradise, sometimes the pits. And it isn’t just the weather … On a  recent walk of mine the whole district was very quiet, and I became aware of the absence of any such values. It was

easy steps to freedom

(tags: wisdom, freedom, advertising, alienation)  Thought for the day: Why does nearly everyone on the supermarket look confused, impatient, lost, oblivious to those around them? Why do they look angry when they get in their £23,000, black, 4 wheel drive, aggressive Shopping Trolley? examples: Because they have been taken over by advertising. Walking to the shop, buying what you

Quick route to fitness, health: exercise

Two reports in today's news build on the BBC documentary of last year - which showed brief bouts of high intensity exercise having great health benefits. It may not work for everyone, but who can't afford one minute? The first report is by Dr. Shayesteh and his interview is available on video courtesy of wytv.com full report here: http://wytv.com/2016/06/01/

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 seen many people lose several stone and achieve their

The Tibestian Book of the Undead

The Diary (2nd edition) of a 360 year old Vampire Chapter 1 I was born in 1645, in a barn. My parents, or rather my mother, lived in a tiny caravan that was pulled by a horse. I can't remember the horses name, but, knowing my mother, it would have had one. Mother made all manner of useful things from wood. She knew every type of tree native to England, and of every land between France and

Penny Smiths Essential Guide To Yoga

I first bought this DVD about 18 months ago, having benefitted from Yoga for decades, then promptly forgotten all about it! Realising that I needed more flexibility and less back ache, I resolved to start again, and this DVD is excellent. It isn't only the content. The presentation is relaxing and encourages daily practice. Reviews on Amazon are generally as positive as mine, so I have no

Essential Guide to Yoga

Essential Guide to Yoga by Penny Smith; with Howard Napper. A fine health and exercise DVD to use at home. A nicely paced DVD (a bit of a gallop the first time, not so slow that the 500th view leaves you bored!).  Having 'forgotten' about yoga for years, it's amazed me rediscover that a whole hour can be spent 'exercising' and leave you feeling less tired.  An hour with no phone calls, no

longevity in Sicily

There was a very good documentary on ITV about the high number of centenarians, in good health, in a small town in Sicily. Their Mediterranean diet has had a good press for some time, but this video also focussed on their activity levels. Most families seemed to have the ground to grow lots of their own food, including small livestock. One thing they didn't mention, which was hidden in plain

Diet and obesity

Research reported by cell.com: http://bit.ly/1MrvqJy shows that not all types of calorie restriction are equal. Cutting fat intake resulted in greater fat reduction in the participants than cutting carbohydrates. In the reduced fat intake diet, calories were metabolised by both fat and carbohydrate sources in equal measure. This is interesting research, but hardly prescribes a full solution for

Social media beats corporations advertising at supporting diet health

Social media beats corporate advertising at supporting a healthy diet Healthy diet requires ongoing affirmations and support to combat the onslaught of advertising from food corporations.
