STARTING A NEW JOB


This website was conceived – as the strapline suggests – as a father’s thoughts for his children. I wanted some way of sharing thoughts and ideas with my children that didn’t involve me boring them rigid over the dinner table (not unknown). I’ve been pretty rubbish at focusing on the sorts of topics that might […]

2017: WHAT REALLY MATTERS


‘Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies’ Aristotle (384 – 322 BC) Who Would Have Thought It? Did you anticipate the extent to which the EU Referendum would cleave into families and friendships in the way that it did, threatening relationships almost to destruction? Indeed, in some cases, destruction occurred. To take just […]

THE END IS NIGH


Miserable Git Anyone who has the remotest interest in the idle musings of me, Moraymint, would almost certainly conclude that I’m a pessimist.

A DUTY TO BE POSITIVE

800 YEARS OF MAGNA CARTA


Warning: Controversial Comment Today, the Daily Telegraph reported, ‘Horrifying animal slaughter in [a] halal abattoir’ in Yorkshire.  If you have a strong stomach then click on the link at the bottom of this post to witness a little bit of hell on earth. Now, what I don’t understand is this. This year marks the 800th […]

WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO (INTRO)?


Introduction Despite the worst fears of at least one of my daughters, I am in fact a happy chappy.  You could be forgiven for thinking otherwise if you read most of the posts on this blog, or my contributions to the comments pages of the Daily Telegraph or, indeed, many of the posts on my […]

ON ‘MARINE A’ AND THE KILLING OF A BATTLEFIELD CASUALTY


It’s a real conundrum living as we do in an age of omnipresent information (in this case an audio-video record of an event that in earlier times would never, ever have been known to anyone other than those directly involved) whilst warfighting remains the same as it has been for a thousand years: hell on […]
