THE RAT RACE

fed up with debt etc visit www.theblackbuscompany.com i am 47 and without it coming across that i'm bragging i have no debt.A lesson i learned from my long gone gran ,this enables me to travel freely without dragging a massive mortgage etc i did at one point in my life join the rat race but quickly legged it .i think we have one life and to spend it paying some bank etc seems crazy to me we have so much to give if we are released from debt. i hope you will visit my site and please leave a comment

THE BLACKBERRY


MY BERRIES CLUSTER BLACK AND THICK
FOR RICH AND POOR ALIKE TO PICK.

I'LL TEAR YOUR DRESS AND CLING AND TEASE
AND SCRATCH YOUR HANDS AND ARMS AND KNEES.
I'LL STAIN YOUR FINGERS AND YOUR FACE,
AND THEN I'LL LAUGH AT YOUR DISGRACE
BUT WHEN THE BRAMBLE JELLY'S MADE
YOU'LL FIND YOUR TROUBLE WELL REPAID..........

Litter

spent the day picking up other people crap it makes me so angry to see somone drive to a lovely parkup only to throw their crap out the window as they go.Whenever you say ought your told to chill or find something better to do ,im trying i want to live litter free i think anyone that gets caught should have to live at the local tip for a month because we will all be living like it soon if we don't clamp down.

caring for your wife with cancer

IT has been three years now since the day my wife was diagnosed with cancer, it was at the royal berks in reading .I remember that day so clearly we were in a small room with a doctor and a junior dr and through a door i could see a table with a pure white sheet drapped over it with a cupboard full off medical stuff next to it.The dr eventually started to talk to us after about ten minutes of sitting in front of him.he just came out and said my wife had cancer(he said it as if he was saying pass the sugar)for the next few minutes i was in a daze i kept looking at my wife i could see she was in total shock .i was trying to get my head around to what the dr was saying to us it was as if he was speaking to us from miles away.(a less caring person i haven't met i realise they are very busy people).when i focused back on what he was saying, it was that we had to decide wether she was to have basically her whole tit off or a small lump removed still he was't looking at either of us .I felt liked smacking him he was so incredibly rude .i looked across to mel she still looked shell shocked so i said can we please have a couple of minutes to decide, at last the sod looked up and i looked at him hoping he could see that i was bloody raging i got up and said to mel come on babe ,we went to the carpark found a corner tucked away and cried so much.

Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
