A Man and His Garden

I mean my pond has a long way to go, but the rest of my garden is in fine shape! There is a serious significance to your garden. It says a lot about a man. Now, if you're all grass no plants, you are lazy and do not even deserve to have a garden.

Running During Difficult Times

A Change Of Direction

I find myself at a fork in the road. If I turn right, I continue with the well paid, reliable job. If I go left I follow a new path. The exciting route with boundless options.

The British Arms Trade Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb

After the devastating and heart-wrenching events that occurred in Manchester a week ago, it was clear to me what was needed. AΒ sombre period of grieving for a community rocked to its core by perhaps the most odious event this country has seen in a decade. Manchester rose to this and rather than finding catharsis through …
