I Think I'm Gonna Puke

I was looking at my blog and noticed the banner ad at the top of the page.

Wow – I can have a bible with my name in it over 5000 times. What a wonderful idea. We can be even more self centred than we already are. Let’s make the bible focus on us instead of God. Brilliant.

The Storage Industry

There will always be legitimate reasons for those big storage places but do we really need as many as we have?

There seems to so many of these lock ups springing up all over the place and it makes me wonder. Why do people need all that extra storage space? Is it because we keep buying more and more stuff that we’ll never use and we need somewhere to put it? Have we really bought into consumerism so much that we are now paying for space to hoard stuff? Do we rush out and get all the ‘must haves’ and then pay out again because all the ‘must haves’ from last year no longer fit into our homes. Our homes are getting bigger and there’s still not enough space for all the stuff that we accumulate.

Here’s a novel idea. Buy less stuff. Then we can save on the purchase price and on storage rental.

Festive Cliches

Don’t you just love those festive cliches?

It’d be such an interesting exercise to count how many times we hear “Christmas Has Come Early” or some derivative in the early part of December.

Someone gets a pay rise and the media say, “workers got an early Christmas gift today when ….”. Advertisers continue to do the “Christmas has come early at Bob’s BBQs where you can …..”

Listen out for it and you’ll hear it several times a day.

What Christmas cliches annoy you?

Jack's Back

I see that Jack van Tongeren is active again pushing his white supremacist views.

I’ve noticed a swag of illegally placed, racist posters on my daily commute.

If his antics continue the way they did many years ago he may find himself spending a bit more time locked away. He was jailed for a number of years after firebombing some Chinese Restaurants.

Life is too short to spend it inciting hatred.
