Guilty – drink driver sentenced

A few weeks ago, I went and watched my first ever magistrates’ court case. Strangely, I have watched parts of some more considerable cases at the Royal Courts of Justice, but I have never attended my local courts; neither the magistrates’ or crown. My interest in local justice was piqued when I had to call […]

Happy New Year 2018!

Happy New Year everyone!  It is now 2018!  Wooah. 2017 was generally a great year!  A few blips.  Enormous thanks go to everyone who made it wonderful and supported me.  I am someone who really focusses on connections.  An act, gesture, or spoken word, even if it was tiny, would have really made an impact. […]

Paris.  November 2016

I have been meaning to create a video of my trip to Paris which happened all the way back in November 2016. I kept putting it off.  I am not quite sure why.  I do enjoy editing a video.  It is timely but I find it quite artistic.  Perhaps I didn’t get around to doing […]

KitKat

It’s August already.  I am not quite sure how this has happened.  A friend just said to me about meeting in December and despite thinking “ahhh, all the way at the end of the year, grrrr”, I suddenly thought to myself, “ohh, that’s not actually that far away”. I meant to share my KitKit, well, […]

London Gay Pride 2017

This was my third time at London Pride, where I watched the parade and absorbed the atmosphere. It is a wonderful event. I think it is the ambience and the sprawling crowds. One is free to be how they want to be, to wear what want to wear and celebrate who they are. Wider society […]

Autopsy of a person with a lot of excess fat

On iPlayer at the moment is Obesity: The Post Mortem.  When I saw it, I was instantly intrigued. As I lay in bed watching it, I couldn’t quite remember if I watched an autopsy years ago on Channel 4.  I think I may have.  Either way, watching this didn’t shock me – perhaps though because […]

Improving the driving test?

Good morning, The Driving and Vehicle Standard Authority (DVSA) currently has an open consultation on its vision of improving the driving test.  I have given my views.  You should too. I would have liked, of course, to have seen proposals relating to the further protection of cyclists and other vulnerable road users.  Alas, I supported […]

Go out and vote!

I’ve just voted.  Go out and vote. It’s so important to have your say.  Today may be the Mayoral, Local, or Police and Crime Commissioner election in your area. Educate yourself and use your vote to have a say on how your money is spent.  At any level of elected office, the direction is decided […]

Doing January

The month of January is about to end; the first month of the year of 2016 gone.  How did that happen?  I’ve “done” January. The year of 2015 was very eventful. But I want to make 2016 even more so.  The first month was a relaxed one, but still quite eventful and now I feel […]

Red Poppy, White Poppy

Hello, Here’s a short video I put together which briefly looks into the fact we have been told we need to wear a red poppy. I talk about my wearing of the white poppy. What does this mean? Do I wear both? What arguments do I have? Will you be wearing a poppy? Of which […]
