    My Dad Used To Say...

    That there will come a day when people will be ashamed to be called rich. I think that time may be a long wait. Our world is becoming more like: "the more I have the more I want" Is there an answer to this problem?   It's hard but it's harder to ignore it.

    Do Dogs Go To Heaven?

    My first dog was young when he got run down by a lorry, and I blame my-self. I was 10yrs old and riding my bike, I got off the road when I heard the lorry, but my dog didn't and the lorry driver was going so fast he didn't even stop. It was a horrible scene. I like to think of...

    I walked through the forest today. When I stopped and listened, I finally heard the birds singing. I haven't been listening lately. I need to listen more. Listen. I'm listening...   ...to the sound of silence.
