Special birthday request to my readers

My birthday is looming ahead of me (Sunday 12th, April). This year, instead of cards or anything else, I would consider it a personal favour if, readers, friends and family would consider donating to a very worthwhile cause, then share the link on their social media pages.
The work the charity does is a cause very close to my heart and one which I feel very privileged to be a part of. The people on the ground are doing fantastic job to alleviate the causes of poverty, and its symptoms, but need the help of people like you in order to continue that work. This is how your money can be put to work.

  • ​$10 provides baby formula for a week
  • ​$15 will provide a fan or a stove, or other needed items for a family in need
  • ​$20 Will keep a child in school for a month
  • ​$50 will feed a family of 5 for a month
  • ​$75 covers a range of medical treatments for serious medical conditions that would otherwise go untreated
  • ​$150 will cover personal hygiene supplies for a family of four for a year
  • ​$200 will rebuild a home in the slums
  • ​$250 can sponsor a child in school for a year

The goal is $1000USD and the campaign will end on May 31st. Please click on the logo to go to the campaign page.

The shocking truth about Samantha Cameron’s interview | Mama Lewis

There is something very wrong with the Cameron family. The article here speaks for itself.  Please read and share.

United Kingdom Approves 3-Person Babies

United Kingdom Approves 3-Person Babies.

The methods involve altering an egg or embryo before it is transferred into a woman which had previously been forbidden by British law. They are intended to avoid passing on defects in the mother’s mitochondria, which can result in diseases including muscular dystrophy, heart, kidney, liver failure and severe muscle weakness.

It would appear that people opposing this would rather babies and children die of a horrific genetic disease, than have their superstition and uninformed sensibilities upset (like it was any of their damned business anyway).  This is an incredible breakthrough which could improve the standard of living for 1000s of people and possibly eradicate this form of debilitating genetic disease.  What is more worrying, are the comments in the thread of the Facebook post claiming that suffering is needed in this world, that if the world was perfect it would be called heaven, and the like.   “Just adopt” they say with an utter lack of compassion or empathy, (not that easy these days).

Argument from bad habits

Argument from bad habits

The trouble is, it is not their own suffering they claim is needed, but that (at least in this case) of innocent children and the parents who have to watch them die slowly. I wonder how many claim to be pro-life. These parents’ longing for healthy children, is entirely human and now that we know how to help them we should.

Back with a fresh new look

Yes, I am back and feeling very guilty for neglecting my readers so horrendously.  I promise I will never to it again.  I aim to do a brief weekly post from now on.  I have missed it terribly.  As it turns out, 3 kids and a degree on the go takes up a huge amount of time.  But it will not be long.  I only have 3 more assignments on this module and then one more module to start in October and if I keep my grades up and work my socks of I should be on for a 2:1!

We are missing someone special.

Harry has been missing from his home on Roper Close, Gillingham, Kent (UK) since 6 pm on Thursday 12th June 2014. He is very friendly and very much loved and missed. Loves Dreamies cat treats.

He is a large tabby tom cat with white whiskers and an almost black tail. He is chipped but we adopted him and the chip is still registered to his previous owner, Mrs Y Cooper.

Please check sheds and garages as he is a terror for hiding. If anybody has seen him or knows anything about what has happened to our beloved family member, please contact:

Large tabby tom cat, white whiskers, chipped (registered to previous owners)
