PINK IS THE NEW BLACK

  Growing up during the garish heady eighties, Pastels and flouros were the go! Awful colours that didn’t have a depth or substance. Washed out and slightly in your face. When I was 7 I shed tears at having to wear pink. I hate pink. What’s with pink?! I had seen little girls rooms that…

The lazy environmentalist!

To my Great Grand Kids, Most of us know the basics and think ‘We are doing our little bit!’ That’s the problem really ‘our little bit’ is trite! It’s a massive problem and there’s loads more that needs to be done, but for the most part the stuff we DO know how to do on…

ALPHABETACIDE

Not since Kurt   Cobain’s suicide in 1994 did something rock my world. 1994, the same year I discovered Superunknown and played the ‘tape’ incessantly in my tiny…

WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS

Literally, when life gives you lemons. I have a reasonably big lemon tree which has quite a lot of lemons on it. Way more than I could ever furnish my Coronas with or dabble with my attempts at morning lemon detoxes. They are starting to fall and starting to rot. I am a member of…
