The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. Easter celebration of birth also new beginnings. Male musicians are allowed to sing about love, and not just erotic love. Isn’t that amazing to when there are so many who fit the type portrayed in ‘Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb,’ or engineering, working down mines, doing nasty jobs as men get called to do and sometimes develop crude, nasty minds. And sometimes have a sense of humour as in the Russian engineer sort that makes fun of all men and their elegant devices.

    The song is about Igor Pachmelnik Zakustov, a made-up Russian person, singing about his job as an engineer. He describes …

    And then men can sing a sweet song from the Eagles for Easter. Love Will Keep Us Alive.
    (Can we have an increase in the latter and then a decrease in the vituperation of fixens and insistence on better relations at all levels to allow us to face the future that will deny us all our humanity.)

  2. Gravitas from my book of daily graffiti (Brit)i:

    Oedipus was a Nervous Rex.

    As that old saying goes ‘It will help like a hole in the head.’ Telling us what to think, how to think, and there will be no human journey for us to get to the top of Maslows Hierarchy and self-actualise from amongst all the possibilities; the great mountain that we all climb, learning all the way if we are open to it in our minds and not brainwashed by early experiences or others’ mind-power.

    Maslow had a good idea but is it true? Living and finding out and looking at how he views things would tell us ourselves not some AI stuff – beyond algorithms – be afraid, very afraid.
    What is Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and why is it important?
    Maslow believed that humans all have needs that must be satisfied, from the most basic needs to the most complex. According to Maslow, people will be consumed by their basic needs before moving on to other, more advanced needs.27/04/2021

    Try transactional analysis – it just means understanding your inter-person communication and why you say things a certain way or respond to others, ie ‘Know thyself’.
    “Transactional analysis is the method used to analyse this process of transactions in communication with others. It requires us to be aware of how we feel, think, and behave during interactions with others.” It recognises that our personality is driven by different ‘ego states’, first mooted by Sigmund Freud.7/06/2022
    What Is The Transactional Analysis Model With Examples

    Big capable minds have applied themselves to thinking about life and how we interact:
    Do thine own work, and know thyself.
    Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
    Carl Jung
    My friend…care for your psyche…know thyself, for once we know ourselves, we may learn how to care for ourselves
    There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.
    Benjamin Franklin
    One’s own self is well hidden from one’s own self; of all mines of treasure, one’s own is the last to be dug up.
    Friedrich Nietzsche
    There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.
    Aldous Huxley

    In every case, the remedy is to take action. Get clear about exactly what it is that you need to learn and exactly what you need to do to learn it. BEING CLEAR KILLS FEAR. Make it thy business to know thyself, which is the most difficult lesson in the world.
    Miguel de Cervantes

    (Cervantes wrote Don Quixote, imprisoned for ransom. – He served as a soldier until 1575, when he was captured by Barbary pirates; after five years in captivity, he was ransomed, and returned to Madrid.) Wrote much but has been lost but Don Quixote brought him recognition. In Don Quixote, he challenged a form of literature that had been a favourite for more than a century, explicitly stating his purpose was to undermine ‘vain and empty’ chivalric romances.
