Is The Smart Phone Really Killing Conversation: I Don’t Think So

We are constantly hearing how the smart phone and technology in general are killing the art of conversation in the family home or in fact in our general lives. This got me thinking is it really that different to 30 years ago before the internet had been invented to the degree of where it’s at now? Anything and everything is accessible just by a touch of a finger or google had even been thought about.

Rollercoasters High Blood Pressure and Vomit

A few days ago a I read a fantastic blog post written by John Adams from Dad Blog UK called “Daddy Will You Come On The Rollercoaster”. The post was fabulously entertaining and although I shouldn’t have laughed I couldn’t help it at times, because like John, I too have an innate fear of rollercoasters. Although I found it amusing, I also had great sympathy with him. It also brought back memories of two such occasions when I couldn’t avoid going on a rollercoaster. Rollercoaster Ride Nightmare 1 The first such occasion was about 8 years ago when my two of my… [Read More]

Christmas I’m So Lucky But Not Everybody Is

There is really nothing unusual about this because for many millions of families it will be the same scene in homes all over the world. However, for many they won’t be surrounded by a loving family.

Doctors, Medications How Life Has Changed This Year

My life seems to be a circle of doctors appointments, having blood taken at regular intervals and the constant thought of have I taken my medications today, which I find incredibly irritating. Life this year has changed for me beyond what I thought it would. It’s a strange feeling because I no longer feel like me. I’m not the man I was, and I don’t mean that in an alpha male way. My confidence has taken a hit this year and I think all the time, what next? This has all stemmed from having a stroke earlier this year. Physically,… [Read More]

Christmas Past Christmas Now!

I love Christmas. It’s easily my favourite time of the year by a long way, but I love the Christmas of today and that is something that has happened from the experiences of my own childhood when Christmas was not such a happy time. Growing up, as I have written about on occasion before, was at times incredibly difficult. My family when growing up has to be up with the best of them as super dysfunctional. It was like walking into a war zone every time I entered my house. I say house because it was so far removed from… [Read More]
