What is Friendship to you?

Good friendships are vital for our em0tional and mental health. They are something we need to prioritise and something we need to treasure and nurture.

Subtitle Slaughter

Subtitle slaughter isn't a new thing. Here are a couple of classics from the BBC ...










Now the challenge lies with so many universities who are having to record technical or scientific lectures which are appropriately subtitled.  It's an almost impossible task. 

Here are just a few that I've been made aware of recently:

'laboratories' turned in to 'bottle trees'

'ionic bond' became 'ironic bondage'   ...  not helpful.

But they get worse ...

'which is known as a vibrio' came out as 'which is known as a vibrator'

My personal favourite, though I probably shouldn't admit it so publicly (oops too late)

'we have got an s orbital' became 'we have got this arsehole'

Take Ten - Kindness Counts

The United Nations have declared October 17th, each year, as an International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.  

I really believe that the characteristic of KINDNESS is what needs to be at the heart of our response to all aspects of poverty in our world.

Taken when I worked on the garbage dump in Guatemala City,
where many refugees risked daily exposure to toxic fumes
and biohazardous materials to sort through endless rubbish
for items that could be sold or re-cycled for cash.
