Today, the UK has voted to leave the EU, the UK Prime Minister, David Cameron (A public-schoolboy upper society product who’s never lived in real-life) has resigned.
There is a lot of chatter about this – a lot of it is bollocks and made up stats – we in the UK need to wait for the dust to settle before jumping to any conclusions.
Here is some proportion / perspective – The EU has only existed since 1956, we’ve only been in it since 1975… The U.K. began in 1284, was formalised in 1536 between England and Wales, with Scotland joining in 1707, and Northern Ireland in 1921.
You really think it’s all down hill from here? History points the other way, and you can’t ignore hundreds of years of historical trends for less than half a century – is this merely a blip in the larger time line?
As you may or may not have noticed, I’m quite creative in the kitchen and am always trying out different recipes for most anything I can think of, from sauces, to deserts and everything in between. Due to my diet (So far, I’ve lost over 5 stone / 30+ kg in around 6 months on this!), most of the recipes are #LCHF, Low Carb, High Fat.
Please go look – the Recipes are linked from the top menu on the site, or here, and will of course be updated when new ones become available.
Been thinking, and remembering (sic) to post this…
Another reason for this blog to exist: I forget almost everything – I mean it. I have difficulty remembering what I’m doing moment to moment on a frequent basis. My desk at work is usually covered by bits of paper I’ve scribbled on, it looks like big-bird (For those who can remember that far back) made out of post-it-notes – without them I would probably just sit there all day trying to remember what I was doing, and drool.
Sometimes I wonder if there is something wrong with my memory, but I am getting on a bit now – I’m 40!
We’ll have to wait and see if I forget more shit, more frequently, depending on if I can remember the things I’ve just forgotten to remember. Erk. That’s where this blog comes in, or at least another function of the existing blog. It’s a memory bank. It’s my memory bank, some of which I’ve chosen to be accessible by almost everyone.
If you read the blog and don’t have a login (Which you probably won’t, unless you’re the one person who knows me most in life or death, then you do), then you’ll have figured out there are gaps, and details are missing. For my own reasons, some posts are hidden from the great, unwashed masses. So there. Another reason, set on verbose.
Thought it was about time I started keeping a better record of my life than what has been captured by Facebook or Twitter; I mean, they’re OK, but hardly detailed when trying to look back and think where you’ve come from…
So it begins here…
