My website got a new look! I’ve often referred to myself as a ghost geek, so I thought I’d incorporate that into the blog somehow. What do I mean when I write ‘ghost geek’? I’m not for one moment suggesting I know loads and loads about ghosts (I would have used ‘ghost nerd’ for that, after all). I use the [...]

4 February, 2014 // 1 Comment

It’s 2014, and after an absence from the media of quite some time the Bownessie lake monster has made headlines once more. Mr Matt Benefield got in touch with the West Morland Gazette to say he thought he might have captured the mysterious beast in a photograph he took when walking in Windermere on January 12th.

Those of you who are regular readers of my blog will have noticed the decrease in the number of posts recently.

It reads: Depression, anxiety and panic attacks are not a sign of weakness . they are signs of having tried to remain strong for too long. did you know that 1 in 3 of us go [...]

Whatever floats your godless boat

18 January, 2014 // 3 Comments

I am non-religious. I always have been despite the best efforts of a Church of England Primary School, and those two or so years I spent in the company of Spiritualist friends, seduced by their ideas of an afterlife. I’m a happy non-religious, non-worshiping, atheist human being with as much good as bad to my name. When I turned my back on [...]
