what's something which boils your blood  

Cruelty with intent, weather its people versus people, people versus nature, towards animals, children, out of ignorance or disrespect....
i witnessed it a few days ago, some people with a small puppy, blaming the dog for not listening, nagging at the dog saying "sit, sit sit!!!" and shouting "good grief shut up" when the dog barked .....but worst of all when I was camping , it was a place where also long term stayers were. A man had a dog which he claimed to have saved, he claimed it used to be an astray dog.
Sometimes hed tie the dog or lock it up and deny it food, the dog would come running and he would nodd his head saying "no food today" while other days he cooked the dog chicken. One night I witnessed the man hit his dog with a sick on his head, I got really upset when I saw it. It felt such an awful useless thing to do.....
Do you think an lp was better than a cd and why?

Yes, I still have my vinyls. Nostalgia I believe.  

Are you easily satisfied? [like the simplest things in life make me happy]

more art on an LP and the lyrics were bigger. LP is easier to keep in a decent state. one thing a cd has going for it is the sound quality is better, that said a decent hifi system (pioneer or sharp) would have a decent sound from an LP also


simple things keep me happy

Concert t-shirts from the 60's-70's ( particularly Woodstock)! They're iconic!

Do you have any summer writing goals?

no. writing is something I do when I feel like it. my only goal is to get a bit better each time I do it, but even that isn't a huge priority compared to other things in my life

Omgosh.  Miles and miles ( not sure how many ) in Central America to view the craters, ancient cities, etc.  It was an all day thing.

But  if you're talking marathon or non-stop then a 15K raising money for a charitable organization.

What is your favorite form of relaxation?

15k is a fair walk, fair play

I think sleep is up there in the top three. but reading at night out the back garden is top these days

In which country? I am not sure about Great Britain's or european mw.  Here in America it should be around 14.00 an hour at least; 7.25 is absolutely ridiculous to expect anyone to survive even working two full-time jobs. It's barely 400.00 a week after taxes. Half after utilities and rent I'm sure. And even less after auto and food expenses.  God forbid there are medical conditions or auto repairs.

And God help those who fall between the cracks and make 10.00 too much to qualify for assistance and yet not enough to survive. It's quite the dilemma here.

What is it like in other countries?

(answered craic blood boil question)

Cowardice bullies injustice, basically the fuckers running everything

I find my self in the tentative situation of having to use street kitchens and food banks. I also volunteer at street kitchen from time, it is doubly humbling  having been on both sides of the serving line. The homeless situation worsens day by day. I find my self having to resist the urge not to shop lift. Sometimes I will from time to time steal food from the big supermarkets. Its easy and fuck the big corporations. There are those that will steal larger items from the department stores to sell and trade, be it drugs alcohol you name it. Its a fucking joke

its about 10.25  here

I don't think it really matters which country. I think if someone, anyone does a weeks work they should be rewarded enough to at least support themselves and their family with a roof over their heads and food on the table. anything else is tantamount to slavery

The one I have now! Content creator: work from home; set my own hours and pay rate. I work half the time for double the money.  I am in paradise and grateful every day.

No; it doesn't matter which country.  I just wondered if it was as bad across the pond as it was here.  I guess Carpe answered that for me.

One of my neighbors was a true flower child of the 60's. She attended Woodstock and still has authentic 60's drug paraphernalia. She is now 72, very eccentric and forgetful.  But she's my favorite neighbor.

Who is your role model and why?

its always been my father. among other things he's worked hard all his life, has always found time for people. he thinks before he does. stays calm . he has a tremendous sense of humour. obviously he's not perfect, but I like his non-perfectness too. most of all, when he was told of his impending death he didn't crumble, he has and still does get on with it like a man
