    Just a bit of a rant

    Hi all I need to rant a bit and where best to do it than here?! In the last 2 weeks: 1. A close friend has had surgery for colon cancer 2. A second close friend has been hospitalised with a series of serious health issues - and on top of that has since discovered he has cancer 3. My closest...

    Outlook Help

    Hello - I need some help with Outlook if possible... I save my work emails into Outlook folders, but they are only available to me. Ideally, I'd like to drag all of my emails onto drive folders where they c. I can do this individually, but where I have a number of emails with the same subject...

    Einstein: Spooky Action at a Distance
  4. Bee


    I was reading a social media thread this evening. The question asked was 'how would you describe your religious views in 3 words'? My answer is straightforward: Controlling the masses (there's an additional pun there if you are Catholic) But here's a screenshot of what others were saying...

    Spaced Repetition Software

    I've been using Anki for over a year now - not consistently, and rather half-heartedly. Jon has put me off SuperMemo because it's less intuitive and you have to understand code more than I do (I don't understand code at all). But Anki and SM aren't the only options. Has anyone tried any of...

    Does something have to be accurate to be true?

    I'm specifically talking about our old friend, the Bible. If you hear the story that God created the Earth in 6 days, and on the 7th, he rested - that's unlikely to be accurate and more, cannot be proven. But what if the real meaning is that the storyteller wanted you to remember that God...

    Trump - the International Diplomat

    ‘“I think it will all work out very well, and also for you with your wall, your border. I mean, we have a border situation in the United States, and you have one over here. But I hear it’s going to work out very well here.” Donald Trump speaking at a joint press conference with Leo Varadkar...

    How to brighten your day

    Here's a lovely article from Mother Russia, telling women how to dress so that the men they work with will be more cheerful. It struck me that I have got it all wrong. While I have been insisting on my rights to be treated equally, I have...

    The Alabama Ruling

    The Senate in Alabama has moved that ALL abortions are to be illegal - including those where the pregnancy is as a result of rape or incest. Supporters say they expect the law to be blocked in court but hope that the appeals process will bring it before the Supreme Court. They want the court...

    The art of negotiation

    It struck me today that perhaps the reason the EU won't negotiate further on a withdrawal deal is that our PM has no clue how to negotiate. Let's take her recent declaration: "Back my deal and I will quit." (I'm paraphrasing). So, applying logic, she will quit once her deal gets through...

    You've been given one job: to make the world less painful to live in. Which 3 things do you tackle first and why?

    Change is a-coming

    Tomorrow is my last day in my job. Here are some stats: I've worked there for 7 years. I've built up a team from 5 people to 32 when all other teams in the organisation have been getting smaller. I've spent in excess of £40m on property. I've generated annual revenue of at least £5m I'm...

    Accountability - Plan Bee

    Spurred on by Jon's achievements, I've also been thinking about how taking an incremental approach to change is more sustainable for me, and more likely to yield the long term results that I want. A year ago, I was recovering from a sudden, shocking illness that nearly cost me my life. After...

    Mind, Body, and Food

    My cooking has become a bit samey, so I've decided that at least once a month (hopefully more frequently), I will add a new dish to my repertoire. I'll post them here as a sort of culinary diary, complete with the recipe and how it looked when I made it.

    Okay... so...

    I'm just not feeling it. I love Christmas - the twinkly lights, the excitement in the air, the dark, rainy nights and cold, misty mornings. But this is the second Christmas on my own and (I'm ashamed to admit) I'm lonely. And really, that's laughable on many levels as I have so many good...

    Hi all - sorry I've been quiet (you may think that's a good thing...). I've been laid up in bed since Saturday with something bordering on flu. Still not right and feeling very rough. Will be back towards the end of the week hopefully.

    America is no longer a white Christian country

    I found this video (it's 2 years old and prior to Trump's presidential victory, but I think it raises some interesting points. The UK is rapidly becoming a secular country. I know only 2-3 families who regularly attend church. In the UK, we often watch what is happening in the US, knowing that...
