My search for the best dog food

My dog became older-looking and much less glossy coat as she approached 10 years old. I wondered if her absorption of nutrients wasn't so good, and read the analysis of her dog food (working dog formula - suitable for sheep dogs and hunting dogs). The food is based on cereals, with some added meat extracts and fats. The added minerals are very impressive and put human food to shame, but only

The roots of poverty in wealthy countries

p { margin-bottom: 0.25cm; line-height: 120%; }a:link { } one home I can understand people squirreling away savings if they feel insecure. But if you own one house and have no debts, why worry? The only way people can really BE secure is through social cohesion … which means lending your neighbour a lawnmower, having infinite patience with alcoholics, and leading by example to

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

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

Know thyself ... or wound others

Even in the tiny, quiet town of Smogdale, UpNorth County, in the UQ (the Untidy Queendom of Little England), the traffic congestion is getting so bad that Kevin the builder has a problem. Despite being a couple of inches short of 7 feet tall, well built and notoriously energetic, he doesn't want to carry his tools 200 yards from his van to his house every day after work. He doesn't want to carry

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 to the surface. Making your own clothes, food, whatever reduces alienation,

Paradise Found

Ancient Ivor is giving young Paul a lift in his car. Paul chats continually and is agitated about Ivor driving so slowly. "Where's the radio?" Paul asked. There isn't one. After fifteen minutes, Ivor stops in a lay-by. "I need you to be quiet for five minutes. Empty your mind and look at the world. After each minute, or thereabouts, I'll ask you a question." "Okay Gov. You're the boss.

Consciousness - The World in ones Head

Tibestian Book of the Undead, part 5 I think I was about 50 when I first realised that many people's world is almost entirely in their minds. I'd known for decades that people are complicated, very different .. weird. Including yours truly, of course. The first example I recall was when I'd spent many months rebuilding a barn, as well as having a full time job. I finished making the roof
