Beyond the greasy grip of money

Beyond the greasy grip of money

What is money anyway? We all use it and we all depend on it and we all talk incessantly about it but which one of us actually understands what it is? We forever make statements like “That’s all very well but who’s going to pay for it?” We are completely consumed by its ‘lob-sided power’. Money differentiates us. We like that! And so, we should! Or at least we should in a healthy competitive, sporting sort of a way! Just…

A Whole New World

A Whole New World

COVID19 will be defeated because everybody is pulling together in an unprecedented time! Except for “The Banks”, it would seem! We bailed them out of a 64B Euro hole ten years ago but now they want to charge interest on stalled mortgage payments during this pandemic!  Are they blind? Can they not see that real money is the power of people pulling together! Or do they just choose mean-hearted-money over people every time? Everybody is pulling together to ‘flatten the…

Bill Gates on COVID19

Bill Gates on COVID19

I just read a What’s App text outlining Bill Gates’s views on COVID19. It captivated me. I was inspired to make this short video commenting on the 14 ‘heart-lifting’ points he makes.

I hope you enjoy watching my video and get as much from the content as I…

COVID19

The whole world is being threatened by an invisible enemy! Our personal health is at risk and many of us may die. At the time of writing, 400,450 people have been infected worldwide and 17,451 are dead. Here’s a link to Worldometer that shows statistics for the world over for a range of subjects which would be fascinating in themselves if not overshadowed by the Corona Virus. When it’s referred to as COVID19 the CO stands for Corona, the VI…

The Petrafied Blog – Intro

The Petrafied Blog – Intro

This blog is ostensibly a blog about what it’s like to have been a ‘crossdresser’ all my life! I hate the term ‘crossdresser’ of course! It suggests something is wrong but more on that later. This is one man’s story about the ‘why’ and the ‘what’ of it all and how it has, quite frankly, consumed and defined me! But it’s more than that too. I hope? I love life with all its ‘ups and downs’. I want to live…
