To me the so-called holy bible is merely a collection of myths and contributions from those who included their own particular thoughts and interpretations many years or centuries after the particular event as the truth, of which was merely of significant interest to them.

 

For example, feeding the five thousand with a few fish and loaves of bread went way beyond sensible comprehension.   

 

With all the other impossible miracles that have supposedly happened should these stories be taken as what actually happened or just the dreaming of a few of the excessively uncompromising?

 

God's ways are beyond our understanding,  please do not mock the Lord's work .

Whoops. Forgot it was Saturday. Got nabbed by the Jehovah's Witnesses this morning. I listened politely to their script then gave them a lecture on Buddhist philosophy. As expected, their eyes glazed over as the brainwashing kicked in. Don't listen, don't listen!!!  Basically, said I, you're looking at God right now and so am I. If you look at the cat in the window, you're still looking at God and that earthworm on the path is also God. We are all the same. No difference.  They scuttled off to bother someone else. One day, they might wake up? Bothering people on a Saturday morning gives them something to do, I suppose... otherwise they might start robbing banks (but not blood banks, of course).

Hahaha you didn't get your copy of the watch tower then Jill??????

Sorry to disagree siddha - but it is ABUSE of religion that is a reason for us slaughtering one another. Using religion as a tool for power. Religion itself is a necessary ingredient in life for most. Although I am an agnostic, my Christian upbringing is still an integral part of my being.

Well said PP

Spot on Rog., Mrs P looks quite fetching with that ponch. Does she take in washing? Give her my regards and ask her if she bakes bread too. Cheers to you both.

She's got to get the mangle from the outhouse when she's finished the washing, more moaning and grunting

I remember Fairy Soap. Mum used the blocks, along with Sunlight, for cleaning. In 1955, just before my sister's fifth birthday and before I was born, mum had a miscarriage and was hospitalized at Peel Street for roughly a week. My father had to look after my sister. When mum came home, she was horrified to see her daughter's face was red and scaly. Dad had been washing it with Fairy Soap instead of the Pears Soap mum always used for her children! Bless him, he wouldn't have known the difference!

I remember all those products, mum used to have a service tub washer with a mangle and my Aunt was the model for Pears soap (the face one) when she was little.

I would love a classic mangle like that - especially one that beekay has pimped up.

Are you calling me a Pimp PP?

Actually, I'm quite flattered that you consider me worthy of a paintbrush and mangle. Cheers Cocker !!

What you really need is a copper! There was one in our kitchen when I was a child. It had originally been coal fired via a chimney but by the time I knew it, was gas fired. No vents. I remember New Basford Lad, bless him, saying how lethal those were due to the fumes. However, my mum loved hers and no washing machine could hold a candle to it.  I know Plantfit is someone who knows all about coppers and the risks they posed.

I assume it's the same kind of thing, but we had a copper in our kitchen in Clifton in the 50s and early 60s.

 

A 3-legged circular grey object which was the early version of a washing machine.

We had a boiling arrangement , it stood outside in the yard and was heated with a gas burner. The gas itself was through some old hosepipe or similar from a take off in the kitchen. It all worked and most of us have survived!!

Spent the weekend helping youngest daughter to move out of her present rental. My role mostly gloss painting a few window sills and other bits which have sustained minor marking from plant pots etc. Also filling assorted holes in walls caused by Rawlplugs and so on, then patching the paintwork.

The place was brand new when she moved in, so anything, even normal wear and tear, shows up. Last I saw the place was looking really good and even though the rental Co.,  have told her not to worry as they know she's been a good tenant, she expects them to find some excuse to withhold at least part of her deposit.

Meanwhile, she is moving into a bigger place..also rented at no small cost. It's only a couple of doors down from the  one oldest daughter owns. Without exaggeration it's a very desirable property in a pretty exclusive part of Salford, I.e Worsley, which I'd say equates to  posher bits of Sherwood/Mapperley Park or similar.

So, daughter arrives at new rental to find that promised re-paint hasn't happened, house is filthy, bins are full of unsorted rubbish which Council will not take away, freezer is full of rancid food, oven is filthy, few lights work, there's a shopping trolley and other assorted crap in garden etc.

She's given the renters 7 days to sort it or she will sort it and withhold rent to cover costs. No idea what the Law says but I've seen her take on people before and she doesn't take prisoners!

Just been for a swim. Did the walking about in the water first, as advised by physio, then 20 lengths of crawl and a bit of floating about to 'warm down'.

Always feel better for it.
