Get politically active!

By Life, PoliticalNo Comments

Want an easy way to tell Gordan Brown what you want the poiticans to do for you?

We’d all love to have the time to tell Gordan Brown and the other poiticans what we want. But let’s be honest, who has the time? To contact your MP or write letters.

Well I found an online way to petition Gordan Brown and his government to action. Here’s the link: As well as signing exsisting petitions you can create your own.

I have signed a few, including one about rising prices for petrol and houses. So go and get politically active now! Right from your chair.

Blog soon,

Amazon Banners?

By Amazon, Money / FinancesNo Comments

You may have seen recently a few Amazon banners turning up on my pages. I know you may be thinking – what the hell is going on? Well, let me explain.

Loads of people shop online now and Amazon is the lead in the market. This due to it’s vast product selection and historically excellent customer support.

So I have joined the Amazon Associates Scheme. Basically for anyone that buys from clicking a link on my site, I get comission. I am hoping it will raise the £35 annual hosting fee.

So if your planning on shopping on amazon, click on any amazon link, or use the search box on each page under the ‘Coming Soon’ section and you’ll be helping me out.

I hate websites that have advertising everywhere though, so I promise not to go over board with the advertising!

Take Care,

People that inspire me

By Books & Authors, Friends & Family, Inspiration, Life, Music & Radio, TV, Online Streaming & FilmsNo Comments

Today’s blog entry, is some what of an odd one. It is about people who inspire me in my life.

First and foremost my family and friends inspire me and influence me greatly. Family wise, my mum inspires me the most. I once asked her, “if you could be famous for anything, what would it be?” Her responce: “I’d like to be famous for making a difference to the world, like discovering the cure for cancer.” As a child she instilled a huge amount of confidence in me and continues to inspire me with her thoughts, feelings and attitude. All of my family inspire me in different ways although she remains the one that inspires me the most.

My friends come from all over the country and from all different cultural backgrounds. It would be impossible to list each and everyone and how they inspire me in one blog entry. But a good example is my friends Simon and Chrys. They are truly wounderful. They accepted me for who I am, the good, the bad and the ugly. They inspire me by being who they are recognising their own strenghs and flaws and have taught me to recognise mine.

In the “famous” world (i.e. people you will know), their is a variety of people who inspire me. I have always loved to make people laugh, so naturally any one who can do this is a big inspiration to me. Comedians who inspire me include: Whoopi Goldberg, Alan Carr, French & Saunders and Dylan Moran.

In the film world it’s more about the content of the film that inspires me than the actors/actresses. Films that inspire me include (but are by no means limited to these films listed): Ever After, Mona Lisa Smile, Beautiful Thing, The Craft, Good Will Hunting, A Home of our own, Billy Elliot, Brokeback Mountain. It would be impossible to list all of them. But the films all involve one of two key themes:
1. Finding love
2. People coping through difficult (some times dangerous) situations in life and dealing with them, coming out stronger often achieving their goals.

Music inspires me too. Again it’s more about the song than the artist. Although some artists that do inspire me with most of their work include (but are not limited to): Mariah Carey, Whitney Huston, Kylie, Diana Ross and The Supremes, Celine Dion, Savage Garden, Enya, Gabrielle, Josh Groben, Nerina Pallot, The Calling. The songs that inspire me are generally about love (as most songs are). They inspire me as they descibe how it feels to be in love or to loose it, feelings that we’ve all had at different times in our lives.

Writers to me are very inspirational. To write words telling a story, that allows your imagination to show the story in your mind (much like a film), even making you feel emotions is truely remarkable. I love books by Sophie Kinsella, Cecelia Ahern and am constantly finding new authors that I like. A book from my teen years entitled The boy in the bubble had a huge inspirational effect on me, wetting my appetite for reading. All of these authors have inspired me to do creative writing which I do from time to time when inspired.

That’s all for now, hope this has give you more of an insight in to me.
