Will they rule the world??

Robots - we’ve been hearing about them for years haven’t we?...

We’ve read about them in science fiction stories, and there’s rarely a day that goes by without some new pseudo-human figure from Japan being demonstrated on TV as it chats with us, often in a slightly strange semi- metallic sounding voice, and with ‘skin’ of a silvery aluminium colour, but otherwise, and quite frequently, really beautiful.

Our first doggy... Picasso!

It is a very sad fact of life that we do sometimes lose our much loved pets… long before we should.  And it's much, much worse if we learn afterwards that there was something we could have done to prevent it.

Picasso's story is just such a tale…but hopefully in telling it, we can help someone else from losing their dog.

We had moved to Spain in 1992 for Brian’s work with the BBC and found a house by the beach on the Mediterranean. Life was nice but would be nicer if I had a ‘companion’ through the day!

Artificial Intelligence

AI, the new kid on the block, the wonder that is going to help us do just about EVERYTHING, from boiling an egg to getting space ships to Mars, the electronic brain that science fiction writers have been warning us about since Frankenstein’s Monster strode the Earth, (and look at the damage he managed during his short existence.)

But what exactly is AI ?

Don't Worry!

Having trouble finding 'true-happiness'? What is it really anyway?

A few years ago I was 'lost'... literally! No job, a failed marriage, no car and literally no-where to live. A friend offered me a bed until I sorted things out.

This one person's kindness probably saved my life, and despite all the challenges and uncertainties we are faced with every day just like I was then, finding true happiness is not impossible; it's a journey that every one of us can undertake with just a few simple steps.

Gotta Love Mother Nature!

Nature has provided us with a wonderful world, hasn’t it, despite all the dreadful things we humans do to try and mess everything up. It’s given us beautiful sunsets to admire, mountain scenery to make us gasp, and oceans that fill us with wonder.

And while it’s doing all that, it’s also creating the air we need to stay alive, the warmth of the sun and rain so we can grow our food. Yes, we would be lost without the power of nature protecting us and, in many ways, directing us.

What Is 'The Universe' Really?

As anyone who knows me is aware, I am a bit of a silly old duffer who, at the age of 89, has very little to do, apart from sitting around having daft ideas about what might or might not be, in this strange lump of rock we have all been dumped on.

I get ideas sometimes that make quite a lot of sense, (or so I like to think), and sometimes there’s a devil who creeps in there causing me all sorts of trouble, as I listen to the thought and say to myself, “Don’t be daft, Brian, that’s not possible – in fact it’s plain stupid”.

What Are The Issues?

You only have to watch/listen to the news and realise every day there is 'something' going on with our younger generations and their the mental health which has become a concern for all of us. Various factors play a pivotal role in shaping their mental health, with diet, education, and family dynamics standing out as cornerstones.

In this short blog I did some research and discovered three elements that are interconnected and are most likely to be impacting  the mental health of our youth.

Yea right!!

What’s this manic ‘need for speed’ thing on our roads these days!?

I’m not talking about the safe drivers doing the speed limit – I’m talking about the ‘wankers’ who rev their engines at the lights or waiting to turn a corner or worse still, speed into roundabouts with no indicators until the last second if at all!

For some reason it seems it’s mostly blokes *SIGH*

Muum.. It's Not Enough!

In the ever-evolving landscape of parenting, a new trend has emerged that's causing quite a stir – kids these days are demanding money from their parents for simple household chores.

This modern twist on the age-old concept of allowance has sparked debates about responsibility, entitlement, and the value of hard work.
