The joy of blogging!

Phew! Those last two posts where really a labour of love! There are still a few typos but let them stand. The blogger’s editor kept crashing. Haven’t the slightest clue how it works in other browsers other than the borg’s explorer and other networks. Time I went to bed after an unproductive day. Thanks for your comment Lou Lou, that made it all worthwhile! And once again cheers Merrick and Reverend Smith!

For It Is Written (in Lego) (part two)


from the brick testament

No men in dresses……

that’s bluebell down to the basement department

'Neither shall a man wear women's clothing.' (Deuteronomy 22:5)

No tattoos (not even “Jesus is Lord”, "Burn in hell unbelievers" “It’s fun to be a fundy” and so on…)

hey, if you have a tattoo, does this mean that, since it can’t be removed, all those pesky fundis might leave me alone in peace as beyond salvation?

'And do not put tattoo marks on yourselves.' (Leviticus 19:28)

No haircuts (now come on boys, if your going to take the bible literally, please explain whey most fundies are not long haired hippies like Jesus)

my barber tends to be muslim

'Do not cut off the hair on the sides of your head.' (Leviticus 19:27)

And give it to the wife! Or burn in hell presumably…………

'OH! YESS!!!!'

The husband must give to his wife what she has a right to expect. (1 Corinthians 7:3)

This is an uncompleted project. I do look forward and hope that the Reverend gets all the way to Revelation, complete with the Great Whore of Babylon yay! But it is indeed in right ordering that he leave the New Jerusalem to last. In the mean time, Elijah’s ascension and Ezekiel’s are eagerly awaited here. More tea vicar?

For it is written (in Lego) (part one)

Cheers Merrick for the link to The Brick Testament. Innit amazing what you can do with a bible, some lego, a digital camera and the internet.


No Sheep Shagging (
Countryside Alliance, please take note!)

that be the way of the country son, oooo ar!

'Do not have sex with any kind of animal. You would become unclean by doing so.' (Leviticus 18:23)

No Fags! (smoking is bad for your health, don’t do it kids!)

God is Love (1 John 4:8 and 1 John 4:16)

'Do not have sex with a man as you would with a woman. It is an abomination.' (Leviticus 18:22)

The Golden Age of Telephone Marketing!

I have forgotten how many free holidays to Orlando Florida I have won. I probably don’t go a week, certainly not a fortnight, without a message left on my answering service that to the effect that I have won a free holiday to Orlando Florida, so pack my bags, and to claim phone the following number. Thing is for my health I need a good healthy climate. And nothing beats good old British Climate, hey we even exported it to other parts of the world, southern Chile, New Zealand, even Normandy. Probably one of our few good exports, but that is another matter.

Anyway, there is a certain magick to it. Of all the names they could have picked out of the BT phone book, they keep settling on mine…… Well, I hear that due to an EU directive coming in such marketing will eventually be a thing of the past. So let us enjoy this golden age while it lasts.

I wonder if Orlando Florida is full of Brits enjoying their free holidays. Perhaps the airport is awash with Brits flying in for their free holiday passing a horde of Brits flying back to Blighty to win another one, and so the cycle continues.

Send me a postcard guys! Or better still, no need to leave the beach if someone has a laptop connected to the internet, perhaps you could send me an email.

Likesay I prefer Old England. Florida seems too sunny and not rainy enough.

May the Government be dammed!

I wonder who was listening to Brian Sedgemore’s speech against detention without trial in time of peace (no, I do not believe that that twit in the Whitehouse’s war against unauthorised terrorism constitutes time of war). And hey, to their credit, it is not just the human rights and civil liberties lobbies, but the capitalist opposition parties too!

From Hansard

“As we move towards a system of justice that found favour with the South African Government at the time of apartheid and which parallels Burmese justice today, if hon. Members will pardon the oxymoron, I am reminded that our fathers fought and died for liberty—my own father literally—believing that these things should not happen here, and we would never allow them to happen here. But now we know better. The unthinkable, the unimaginable, is happening here.”

“It is a foul calumny that we do today. Not since the Act of Settlement 1701 has Parliament usurped the powers of the judiciary and allowed the Executive to lock up people without trial in times of peace. May the Government be damned for it.”

Have a read of the speech in full. May this bunch of control freaks be dammed! Wake up England! Habeas Corpus! Trial by Jury! Magna Carta!

Enjoy your retirement in this green and pleasant police state Brian, well done, you tried at least!

Re: Re: Re: Love and Chips! xx


good to see you still on faceparty ;)

Thanks for your message and all the sharings therein.

> When i say he stole years from me... i mean that, if i knew about the other women i would have left him as soon as it happened, therefore, i stayed , and he kept me, in a relationship that was built on lies.

don't get me wrong. I am not trying to suggest in any way that this is not breach of promise, that your hurt is not real.

If he hadn't been caught, would you have been unhappy?

> if he told me about the kid, i would have left him.. and he knew i was a good wife, a giving and faithful wife, he wanted the best of all worlds.

I believe that's known as being human.

> I could have left him years ago, when i was still young enough to start again. Instead i have nothing, living in a crummy council flat.

you and me both. Suspect my council bridge of sighs bed-sit is crummier than yours....

> Ive been to college in the past year,

A favourite quote in "Doctor in the house" is "an education can last a lifetime - if you want it too...". Pity about the University of Leeds school of continuing education being discontinued...

> now looking for work in office admin.

good luck. ever seen the film "Secretary"? Assume the position LOL!

> We should all be given the choice, of how we lead our lives,


> i feel that i wasnt given that choice, it was taken away by HIM and his secrets.

Perhaps you have a point.

I do recall however. One episode of "Absolutely Fabulous" where Saffy gets Edina some "Lecoix" ear-rings and Edina wants to know are they really "Lecoix", and indeed gets manic about it.

"Do you like them?" asks Saffy

"Well I like them if they are Lecoix"

> I dont want to sound bitter..

you have permission to be bitter

> im really happy being single and celibate..

Job's a good 'un then.....

> i get lots of offers of course.. for sex..

Job's a good 'un....

> but i dont want anything to do with that.

you self confessed prude LOL!

> I want a man that adores me exclusively

Get real! PML!

Seriously, how you feel is how you feel. There would be something wrong with being too realistic. I am a card carrying idealist, but why hold someting as horrible as monogamy up as an ideal?

> and thinks of me first,if i cant have that, i'd rather be alone.

Wonderful to find someone who at least has the courage to live alone.

But why the notion that you have to live in a mono relationship or live alone? It is a pity that shared housing is seen as counter cultural outside of studentdom....

> P.S .. i do miss sex though .lol

Me too. After 3 months I am gnawing at the furniture in frustration

Re: Re: Love and Chips! xx

hellooo again

many thanks for your message

> > well, confessing to an away win would have disturbed an existing relationship

likesay, surely it is wrong to disturb an existing relationship. Ergo, confessing to an away win would have been a sin.

> Instead of confessing... he kept quiet and stole years from me which didnt belong to him.

to be honest, I do find this an odd way of looking at it. How can you say that someone else’s time did not belong to him? But likesay, there is a certain logic to it, viz, a possessive relationship is possessive, so if you think that you own another persons body and soul then it follows that you own his or her time. So yes, the reasoning is clear enough, just the first principals are bizarre. I won’t say that I believe possessive relationships to be ok, but what other people do with their body and soul is likesay, not my concern.

Who owns my body? Who determines how much of it I can share?

Again. Don't get me wrong. Perhaps some mono relationships are loving relationships. Though I suspect that this is despite their being exclusive and possessive rather than because.

So likesay, I don't believe that monogamy is about love, it is about ownership possession and control.

> When i say, "at least you are honest," then the woman knows what they are getting into .

Likesay, I am still not happy with the by the "at least" bit.

Who owns my body? I love sleeping with women and love the women I sleep with. If you believe that there is something wrong with this then why not say so?

> They can choose to go for it, or not.

as if loving open non-possessive polyamourous relationships are not fabulous, and as if

> My Ex led a double life,

Most people do. We don't live in a monogamous society (thank JAH!) just one riddled and crippled by monogamous assumptions.

> complete with women.. and even a kid..I will never forgive him.

Perhaps we all have forgiveness problems...... I am not asking you to forgive, none of my business. Nor would I deny that you are hurt, I believe you are.

> I have no idea why he did it , nor does he, (so he says,) I was "giving" in every way possible.

Ahem. A woman who tried to guilt trip me into a mono relationship, when we had met in a bar and the first thing I had said to her was that I was ravingly heterosexual, ravingly polyamourous and had a paramour in London. Well, she reckoned that by trying to get me to dump my London paramour and make it illegal for me to love any other woman that that was generous on her part.....

> I can't detatch feelings from sex,

I' not sure I could. My bottom line is at least a pretension of affection. Though likesay prefer loving long term committed open polyamourous relationships. I can dream can't I? And where there is no vision the people perish (Proverbs 29:18)

> that's why i can never do casual or one night stands.

Another non-sequiter surely?

> Im a prude... so shoot me

No worries. Again, nothing wrong with being anti sex if your open about it. Or at least there is something refreshing! :)

> He was weak, in my eyes,

he did what most people would have done.

got to go and heckle the Vice Chancellor so Hasta!

Re: Love and Chips!


> Thanks for the nice comments.

your welcome ;)

> I've read your profile..

you know, I wonder if most people do..... people are strange...

> and what can i say ? apart from "each to their own@.

fair enough

> My heart would break, ( and indeed it did ) if the man i was with slept with another woman.

now then. Wouldn't want to go down the route of misguided attempts to heal, teach, and convert. Life is too short. Monogamy is sort of ok between consenting couples in private LOL!

> I was with my EX for 20 years, i had no idea that he had been seeing many women over many years.

well, confessing to an away win would have disturbed an existing relationship.

Am personally really not sure why society seems far more threatened by openly living non monogamously than by "cheating" but such is life. Most people are not monogamous all the time and I doubt they ever will be. Viz, in a poll in New Woman 58% of married women said that they had had sex willingly with a man other than their husband. As my brother said and the other 42% lied. Rhetorical, yes there are mono women as well as mono men....

> I left him 18 months ago when i discovered this, i just took my kids and my clothes, and walked.

I won't ask why, likesay lets not go down the route of misguided attempts to heal, convert and teach.

> I suppose its different for you, because you and your partner both agree on the same thing.

not quite a partner per se, she is married after all. And yes, of course, it is an open marriage (though they are not out to the next door neighbours) her hubby has his one night stands and she has her crushes, who all bar me dump her in the end.

> I could never share anything so precious and intimate with other women.

bizarre, but how you feel is how you feel.

> Im single now, and not started the dating thing yet.. oh my word... its a minefield... so many false people.

yup! being honest doesn't get me many dates. None really.

> At least you are honest.

ahem, rather judgemental of you. Are you trying to imply that there is something wrong with being generous with body and soul?

and if you honestly believe that love is jealous, why not say so? (see 1 Corinthians 13:4)

Royal Example?

Well. I read it on the internet, so it must be true, that the Brit crown prince and Camilla (the lady who has, allegedly, for years been a heartbeat away from being a kings mistress) are to get hitched.

“So Bluebell, why would you give a toss you raving Republican loon?” well if we must groan under the ridiculous institutions of monarchy and hierarchy. No I am not suggesting that the saxe-coburg-gotha’s set an example, but it can be a silver lining on a cloudy day.

So yes, would have been nice if Charles and Camilla had waited until after the coronation. Then anyone “living in sin” would be able to happily note that they where only doing what the King was doing, and it would be the height of respectability, which would be a good thing.

Why do I muse? I am not the marrying kind anyway. And gone are the days, no doubt, when the upper classes just didn’t bother with monogamy, unless they wanted to. Again, this is probably the one instance where I wish the workers and peasant’s would take inspiration from our so called betters. Roll on the revolution!

Was listening to State Controlled Radio this morning. It seems that Republican Ascot is not being held at Ascot somewhere in the deep south this year, but in the Ancient Metropolis of the North, York. Well York racecourse to be precise. Not alas permanently but because they have the builders in at Ascot (hmmm builders delay might just mean another year, ten if it where a council job…).

Well, in an interview with a woman in the business of providing hospitality for Republican Ascot at York, she said that one Amerikan had said that he had friends in Edinburgh and was that within walking distance of the racecourse?

“Well sir, you will need good walking shoes” she quipped.

Picture the scene. Said Amerikan on first day or Republican Ascot asks his Edinburgh friends “Say buddy which way is the racecourse?”

“Oh just 200 miles down the Great South Road (aka the A1) and turn left”

Lets hope he remembers some good walking boots. Hi buddy if you are reading this, we will make you very welcome in Old England. Just don't mention the war......

400 Years! 400 Years!

Have been selectively reading bits of “Roots” by Alex Hayley.

A few years ago, I remember seeing an exhibition in Birmingham art gallery, some very simple large paintings. The first showed an anvil and some stakes above the ground but pointing downwards. Took me a while to wonder what this symbolised. Then it clicked, chains being made on an anvil, and the stakes forming the stockade of captivity. The second frame was equally moving. It showed Africa and America and the ocean between them And a ship in the shape of a coffin sailing from Africa to America with in the distance in Europe and old classical temple. The Atlantic slave trade was controlled and devised in Europe. And of the temple, yes, slavery was known in classical times. How did a continent that I love descend into barbarism from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries?

Perhaps, conditions of those enslaved for the Indian ocean slave trade where as bad as those for the middle passage of the Atlantic. Even so, and no I am not expecting the sins of the fathers to be visited upon the sons and indeed daughters, I see all too little repentance. Perhaps because some at least in Europe became wealthy on the slave trade and still are. And as for the continued existence of slavery…..

Cue 400 Years by his Bobness, Bob Marley.
