MEME: The Year That Was 2015

Its that time of year again, where I look at the Year that was, and do the customary Year that was Meme. MEME: The Year That Was 2015 1. What did you do in 2015 that you’d never done before? OK, New things :- Wrote a Paper (The Two Pillars) Got on the Ladder in Rose Croix (Captain of the Guard) Got Installed as 2nd Principle in Chapter. Gave the Charge after Initiation. Visited a Provincial S.R.I.A. Meeting Gave a Full Lecture in Royal Arch (Symbolic) 2. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year? Yes. Well I gave up on resolutions many years back as I never stuck to them, whereas my competitive nature makes me stick to challenges. So for the last few years I have had a yearly challenge. This year it was of a threefold nature, Do the 100 Days Challenge. Write a paper Write a joint bi-weekly story. The first two I did and stuck too, but the third failed due to external problems. But as my friend MeatLoaf says “two out of three ain’t bad!”  Next year I am again doing a threefold challenge, very similar to this years. 100 days, Write 4 papers, Do a unique piece of artwork. 3. Did anyone close to you give birth?  I was going to answer Yes, PlanetPete to this question. Then I...

2016 Challenge

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Artisan 2016 Artisan Challenge 2016 The last time I actually made some New Years Resolutions was way back in 2006, which in January when tradition says I should pick some  resolutions for 2016, it will have been a decade since my last ones.   “forgive me father, it has been ten years since my last resolution” The reason I stopped making the traditional New Years Resolutions was a simple one, basically I am really crap at sticking to them. It seems pointless making a bunch of resolutions you know you...

New Organ Donation Laws in Wales

So as of today “1st December 2015” every Adult in Wales who has not actively gone HERE and stated that they want to keep all their bits when they die will be considered fair game for harvesting. Or to put it in their words After the 1st December 2015 if you have not recorded an organ donation decision (opt in or opt out) on the NHS Organ Donation Register, you will be treated as having no objection to donating any of your organs. This is called “deemed consent”. You are probably thinking that is a good idea, and it will help reduce the size of the list of people waiting on transplants, and even save lives. After all there is a big shortage of organs for transplants in Wales and the UK. In 2012-13, 36 people died in Wales while waiting for a transplant So this is a good thing right? Let me leave you with this thought. If you were waiting for a transplant, and you could die without it, and you knew that every person in Wales was now an all you can transplant buffet, would you be willing to wait in the hope someone may die of natural causes in time to save you, or would you plan mass-murder in Wales to get the part you need? I know what I would do, and NO I am not going...
