POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

The British people have spoken! We have shown the country that we have more power than the idiots in the big buildings. This is as important as the vote to leave.

We have said: ‘OUR MONEY IS FOR US’ And everybody needs to take note.

It’s interesting to see the way various areas have voted. Scotland, the coastal areas of Wales and border towns of Northern Ireland wanted to remain. Whereas the midlands and other built up towns wanted out. The built up areas are more industrialised and have many more immigrants.

Don’t get me wrong here. I have no problem with people coming to the UK to work or study. It’s those who wish to live off benefits that get my goat. Those of us who live in the industrial centres are all to used to this.

My neighbour has just been made redundant. He was born and brought up in the UK and has worked all his life. He can’t get full dole as he has redundancy pay. The dole office are making him keep receipts to show them what his redundancy pay has been used for. They want to make sure he hasn’t put it into a secret bank account or used it for a nice holiday.

Some people are on £200 per week while not working. And they’re not British. They haven’t put anything into this country.

How is this fair?

Regardless of colour of skin or religion followed, if you have worked in this country and contributed to society then you should come before others.

If our government had put it’s own people first then this vote may well have been different.

Red Meat Causes Cancer?

I saw on the TV this morning that ‘they’, whoever ‘they’ are, have now said that red meat can cause cancer. Well, this is not actually news. It’s been known for sometime. If you haven’t seen it watch the video of ‘Forks Over Knives’ (forksoverknives.com). It details research done showing the effects of an animal based diet and the effects of a plant-based diet. It’s quite eye-opening. The video is from 2011. However, in the 1970’s China began research on its own population to see what the correlation was between diet and cancer. The research was published in 1981.

The statistics show that countries who have the largest animal based diet also have the largest number of deaths due to coronary disease or cancer, while countries on a large plant-based diet have a lower number of deaths due to these medical reasons.

Researchers have also found that switching to a plant-based diet can reverse the effects of many conditions, including diabetes, arthritis, obesity, cancer, and many others. Now I’m not telling anyone to give up any medication they are on, but it’s been found that a plant-based diet makes people feel healthier and they feel that they have more energy.

In my mind the question is: ‘Why is this only now being said in the media, when it’s been known for sometime?’ The answer is very simple. The meat and dairy industry is a multi-billion pound industry. In the UK the only time we will get to hear the truth of this is when it begins costing more money in the NHS to treat these problems, than the meat and dairy industry is bringing in. After all, money is more important to people in power then the health of the workforce. If one worker dies there is always another to fill the place.

Happy Solstice, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, Seasons Greetings

Well it’s the time of year for spending again. Get your pay early so you can spend it on family and friends and loads of food that you don’t need, but the compost bin will enjoy. That sounds a bit miserable doesn’t it? But it’s true! Those of us enjoying a celebration at this time of the year go overboard. We don’t need to. But we love doing it. You know I’m right.

And every year most of us say that we didn’t need to get all of that food so we’re not going to do it next year. But next year we spend more. Why? Well in my opinion it’s very simple. Although we may have a religious celebration, the main celebration centres around our loved ones. It’s the one time of the year when we hate and we love having our family around. Love and hate are two sides of the same coin – you can’t have one without the other. When it comes to family and this time of the year, this particular coin is being tossed constantly.

So whether we spend the money from a desire to shower our family with gifts because we love them, or because we want to get one up on the rich aunt and uncle, or even keep up with the neighbours, spend we do. We’re helped of course by the stores who are all too eager to offer encouragement.

So I know I’m a bit late with this, but HAPPY SOLSTICE for all my Pagan friends. I was busy greeting my parents who are spending a week with us.

HAPPY HANUKKAH for all my Jewish friends.

MERRY CHRISTMAS for all my Christian friends.

And for all my friends who are atheist, or just couldn’t give a damn about religion – HAPPY HOLIDAYS, SEASONS GREETINGS.

I hope everyone has a good time, and party’s safely.

Enjoy the January sales!

Money Raising For Charity

One of my colleagues is currently raising money for a charity helping the widows and orphans in Syria. She organised a day last week to sell samosas, spring rolls, and raffle tickets. I helped, along with two other colleagues.

The four of us spent the whole day walking around the site raising money. We didn’t even manage to get to all the departments. We raised over £600 in one day, and we are doing it again tomorrow.

People jumped at the food – everybody loves samosas! But many people were putting their hands in their pockets and giving us handfulls of coins, and notes of all denominations. On top of this we had a colleague who runs a restaurant part time donating a meal for two. We were then donated another meal for two by a colleagues cousin. We were already selling raffle tickets for a big hamper – all the items in it new and donated. So we have two more prizes to raffle off tomorrow.

I would definitely recommend rasing money for charity if you’re feeling a bit down in the dumps. It was so nice to see how caring people are and how generous we can all be. It lifted my spirits, and I’m pretty sure my colleagues would say the same.

It was a very tiring day. I could hardly walk when I went home. Had to put my feet in the foot massager for 1/2 hour. I was absolutely fine the next morning. Had a lovely cheer-up too. One of my colleagues who had helped with the fund raising is a fit young guy in his twenties. He said he was still knackered! Made an old gal like me feel so much better.
