Found myself in York last week, to meet up with my friend the Laird Glencairn. We had a pleasant 3 hour chat that seemed now to last 3 minuets. The time fly’s when you are talking to wise people.  It is talking to fools that makes time drag it’s feet.


So hear you see the Laird, myself and Christine.

Christine was a Lifeguard at the local swimming pool and indeed has saved

a number of children from drowning. 

The Laird is an Historian but a man of the here and now.

A Man with a deep knowledge of many things in life and a rapier like whit to boot.

Challenge him at your own risk

If ever you should find yourself in York, then seek out a place called 

“YEA OLD SHAMBLES TAVERN”   and ask for Harold. 🙂  





I have always been a Sun lover and yes I knew the risks involved. But like other Sun lovers, I choose to ignore them. I was of the frame of mind that if the worst should happen, then i would just accept the consequences of loving the Sun and die   !!! 

 I never believed for one moment that I would ever sucume . How wrong I was. 

Yes I have been diagnosed with Skin Cancer.  “Squamous cell carcinoma”

It is a very common form of Cancer in fact from over a Million cases

only a little over 8 thousand died.

I like those odds.  So at present I am not overly concerned, but that may change

if it “spreads”


Because of my liver transplant. There is no alcohol in my life.

Because of my Diabetes. There is no sugar in my life.

Now because of this. There is no Sunshine in my life.


Written across my Heart in burning letters are the words,


Written across my Brain in burning letters are the words,







Mother Nature has created a most amazing work of art.


It is that handful of slippery matter that lives inside your skull

It can ache from laughter or it can weep from sadness.

It can tell you things that you would rather remain ignorant of.

It can guide you to the place you wish to be, or it can lead you to Hell.

It is “your” Brain and you are responsible for what it thinks.

You alone know the password to that little computer in your head.

But it is of no use to you, if you can’t get on line.

Some people need a little help to get themselves connected, that’s all.

North Korea.

I have always viewed North Korea with  suspicion. That brutal regime is a brooding menace , just waiting to explode  like a volcanic eruption. Fracturing what little peace we have here on Earth. Billions of pounds spent on becoming an illegal nuclear power, while it’s brainwashed people scratch an existence among the dust.

Is “Kim Jong Un”  a loose cannon or is he just flexing the muscles of his new found power.  No man in possession of all his faculties , would/could “press the button”. But what if he is in fact unstable , with a desire to go down in history as the craziest of them all.

Beware the young gun, “volant”

North Korea’s latest threat to rain missiles on the US, with maps showing flight paths across the Pacific, and leader Kim Jong-un signing orders at a midnight meeting, raises even more pointedly the question that the past month of ever more feverish menaces has already posed. Namely: are they serious? Do they mean it? Could a Korean Armageddon really happen?

“I believe it can”


I fear no ill.


Pure Madness.




The policy statement, authored by Johns Hopkins Medical School Psychology Professor Paul McHugh, listed eight arguments on why gender reclassification is harmful.


If you are born into this World as a Man, then you live and die in this World as a Man. Regardless of what you have had added, or lopped off.  IMO.

Any Parent who would agree to their “child  ” undergoing such a  procedure,

should have that “child” removed from their care. 

Also any adult male or female who has undergone this procedure

must be deranged.  IMO.


What do you think about it  ?





HOT !!!





It stings like hell when we lose our Mothers.

But the Love she showed you, remains, place it in your pocket and reach for it

whenever you need her wisdom.

Worship to God. Element of design.

A recent interview with my Daughter By Enterprise Magazine

Fertility model for sustainable integration

EQUAL model is the result of Lisa Nicoleen Hutchinson’s burning social commitment and uncompromising belief in every person’s inherent power. The work method combines cost-effectively humanism with science, and the vision is an effective integration where everyone gets a chance to feel good and achieve success.

EQUAL Educational Development Inc. invests and monitors the children and youth in foster homes, providing support for vulnerable families and work for a better integration of including unaccompanied minors. 

 Lisa Nicoleen Hutchinson, EQUAL’s founder, is working together with its employees for the proprietary EQUAL model, which can be explained as an approach that is based on a holistic view of inspiration, humanism and science watchwords.

EQUAL model is based on a dissatisfaction with how Swedish society takes care of and introduces refugee. Lisa worked for years to find a way that could contribute to a better functioning integration, and their efforts resulted in EQUAL which started in 2011. 

– We want to show how a human, empathetic and research-based approach can both contribute to improved integration and a better society, but for the sake of it cost a lot of money, says Lisa, who herself is a lawyer, criminologist and psychologist right in the ground. 

Throughout her career, she has been interested in social norms and how people can navigate and control over their own lives. She has also worked for several years with business in developing countries.

– When I worked in Africa, I realized how important it is for integration to explain the invisible and often unconscious norms governing social interaction in a culture, says Lisa.

EQUAL model is based on a solution-oriented approach where one of her attending work uses including CBT and motivational interviewing.Each family has dedicated family consultants working in close relationship with the family and the placed child. 

– Our consultants, who have expertise in areas such as trauma therapy, neuropsychiatry and developmental psychology, has good knowledge of the entire arrangement and functions including as links between the family and social services and other agencies, says Lisa and develops:

– One of our strengths is that all consultants share our values and vision. We believe all of us that the combination of science and humanism creates harmony, says Lisa. 

Something she considers to be crucial for the stability that constantly strives for and that is one of the prerequisites for a successful integration.

– It’s a very big challenge for a family to welcome a young person in crisis and the difficult experiences in your luggage. Therefore, the support of our family advisers extremely important, says Lisa emphatically. 

All work is ultimately intended to help young people to grow and establish themselves in society. 

EQUAL aims to provide support for children and young people throughout the integration process and until they establish themselves in the labor market. 

– We do not just teach what needs to be done, but attaches great importance to how it should be done and why, says Lisa, and adds: 

– Since we are currently in the process of developing digital user-friendly tool that apps that allow, among other things break down EQUAL model into smaller parts for it to be more beneficial. It is, after all, a training and therapy tools that can be used in many more areas.
