“We meet on the broad pathway of good faith and good will; no advantage shall be taken on either side, but all shall be openness and love. The friendship between me and you I will not compare to a chain; for that the rains might rust, or the falling tree might break. We are the same as if one man’s body were to be divided into two parts, we are all one flesh and blood.”

 HELLO MY FRIEND.

COME SHAKE THIS BROKEN HAND,

HUG THESE SHRUGGED UP SHOULDERS.

SMILE INTO THESE STARVING EYES,

AND KISS THIS FURROWED BROW.

THEN TALK TO ME OF BEAUTIFUL THINGS.

Old Lady . Mormo maura…


I had spent hours trying name the Moth in my last post. Finally I thought may be there is a group dealing with Moths on Face Book.  I joined a group called ‘Butterflies and Moths of Great Britain & Ireland . I was given the name of this beast very quickly by a very knowledgeable lady. I was most impressed. So if anyone should need information on the subject, then I highly recommend this group.

I can now spend the rest of my day doing nothing, with a smile on my face🙂

What is it ?


Whilst sitting in my garden this morning, I moved an old pot that had been standing there for too long doing nothing. There was a piece of old cloth at the bottom of it. When I lifted the cloth, I was surprised to see this big dark coloured Moth.  YIKES…I had never seen anything like it before.

I did think at first of the Peppered Moth This is the Moth that Evolution, because of pollution, had turned from white to black . Middlesbrough being an industrial town during earlier days, I thought seemed plausible. But then i noticed the red markings on the back of the Moth. So checking on the internet, I was disappointed and surprised not to find anything that fitted the description of the Moth I had discovered.

If anyone out there can throw any light on this, I would be very greatful.

PERSONALLY I HAVE NEVER CONSIDERED TAKING MY OWN LIFE.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN THAT DEPRESSED, BESIDES I LOVE LIFE

AND I AM TOO MUCH OF A COWARD ANYWAY  :)

BUT I HAVE WONDERED SOMETIMES IF ANIMALS IN ZOO’S

OR THOSE RUNNING FREE EVER TRY TO END THEIR LIVES.

MANY PRISONERS IN JAIL COMMIT SUICIDE,

SO MY LOGIC TELLS ME THAT IT MUST BE POSSIBLE,

THAT ANIMALS THAT BECOME SERIOUSLY DEPRESSED

MAY COMMIT SELF MURDER.

A CRUEL DILEMMA.


SECOND LARGEST DIAMOND ON EARTH FOR SALE

£70 MILION.

 

diamond

AND TO THINK THAT A LITTLE BLACK MAN IN SOUTH AFRICA, WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO TOUCH AND SEE IT “EVER”.

90071_448740

WHAT PASSED THROUGH HIS MIND THE MOMENT HE GLIMPSED

IT’S BEAUTY, AFTER SPITTING ON IT AND RUBBING AWAY THE MUD AND GRIT, THAT

HAD  HELD IT PRISONER AND HIDDEN IT’S BEAUTY FOR COUNTLESS MILLIONS OF YEARS.

IN HIS HEART OF HEARTS HE MUST HAVE KNOWN THAT IT WAS NOT HIS PROPERTY

AND THAT HE “MUST” RELUCTANTLY PLACE THIS BEAUTIFUL MONSTER INTO THE

HAND’S OF HIS SUPERIOR

SUDDENLY HIS ELATION EVAPORATES AND IS REPLACED BY THE THOUGHT

OF SMUGGLING IT OUT OF THE MINE. BUT NO CHANCE OF THAT HE THINKS.

SO, RESIGNED TO THE FACT THAT HE MUST RELINQUISH THE PRECIOUS STONE,

HE CONTINUES SWEATING AND DIGGING.

I DON’T KNOW IF THIS POOR MAN RECEIVED A REWARD, BUT IF HE DID, THEN IT WOULD

PROBABLY BE SOMETHING TO THE VALUE OF A WEEKS WAGES, ABOUT £5 

AND FOR THAT, HE WOULD BE EXPECTED TO BE GRATEFUL.

NOW THINK FOR A WHILE OF THE PERSON WHO DOES EVENTUALLY BUY THIS OH SO BEWITCHING CRAZY DIAMOND.

THINK OF THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIM AND THE MAN WHO DISCOVERED THE STONE

AND YOU WILL SEE ONE OF THE GREATEST  INJUSTICES OF LIFE.

IT IS STORIES LIKE THIS THAT MAKE ME FEEL SO LUCKY TO BE BORN INTO  THE FREE WORLD.

IF IT HAD BEEN MYSELF WHO DISCOVERED THIS MAGICAL STONE, 

I THINK I WOULD HAVE BURIED IT IN THE FLOOR SOMEWHERE, THEN 

AT THE START OF EVERY SHIFT I WOULD STAND ON IT AND SMILE

TO MYSELF, KNOWING ,THAT AT THAT VERY MOMENT I WAS SUPER RICH.

BUT I ALSO THINK THAT THE FRUSTRATION AND STRESS I WOULD EXPERIENCE,

COULD  KILL ME AND PROBABLY WOULD.

THE MOST CRUEL OF DILEMMAS .

A short note on the ethics of liver transplantation


6 years ago I received a successful liver transplant. For that, I shall be eternally grateful to the surgeons, doctors and wonderful nurses.

In the same ward as myself was a 35 years old alcoholic, he had been drinking up to 5 bottles of white lightning (cheap strong cider) per day. A thoroughly uncouth man, who was forever pressing the emergency button to call the nurse. He told me he was considered by the Doctors to be “high risk”, I myself had been classed as” low risk”.
Then he told me he had waited only 3 month on the waiting list. This made me think, as I myself had waited 9 month on the waiting list.

Why so long I wondered considering I was classed as “low risk” Plus this man had brought about his own problem. My problem was not caused by alcohol.
I began to think it was unfair, I felt like the alcoholic had been prioritised and I had, in effect been punished. So I questioned the Transplant coordinator but she could shed no light on my query.

This note discusses the ethics of who does and who doesn’t receive the life saving surgery. “oh” well at least I am alive now and shall be for years to come yet. I learned later the alcoholic died !!!

The Electric Agora

By Daniel Tippens

This is the first of what will be several rounds of dialogue between Dan Kaufman and Dan Tippens on “moralizing medicine.”  As in a real conversation, each entry will consist of relatively short bursts of points and counterpoints that not only will keep the exchange moving, but will leave room for development of the relevant ideas in the comment threads that follow.

I have been concerned about the way in which we moralize medicine, and after several chats about the topic with my dear friend Dan Kaufman, I’ve decided to put down a few brief thoughts. My concern is with our occasional reliance on the concept of punishment in medical practice, and particularly with regard to organ transplantation. In the United States, organ scarcity is a serious problem. An estimated twenty-two people die each day, because we lack a sufficient number of organs to save them. Our…

I am sure there shall be those who would disagree . 

But that is Natural.

I am not their enemy, just because we have contrasting opinions.

I believe that one hand designed everything that exists.

The Hand of NATURE.

It should never come to conflict between nations

because of our beliefs. I say “should never”

But it has and does happen, in fact it is happening world wide as I speak

and it is the flames of religion that ignite’s the fire.

Not Nature.

My belief in evolution and Natural selection is unshakeable and nothing can erode or diminish it, in anyway at all. 

To all believers i say this.

“If you gain comfort by reading the black book, then I am happy for you”

To all nonbelievers I say this.

“We know the TRUTH.

This is horrific, if you are squeamish then give it a miss. 

“You have been warned”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3134200/Heart-breaking-image-puppy-unaware-skinned-alive-cooked-China-s-annual-dog-meat-festival.html

I have been a Dog lover all my life and never have i seen such carnage such brutality, being inflicted against my beloved Dog friends.

Just why they should make a festival around the eating of Dog meat is beyond me. Just because we don’t see it here in the West, does not mean it isn’t happening.

It sickens me to think that the powers that be in China turn a blind eye to this disgusting part of their culture and there you have it. It is their culture  and nothing will be done to stop it.
