  1. Why Trees?

    by , 01-08-2018 at 12:47 AM (Barmy Blue's Bland Blog)
    Why not trees? They’re lovely.
    We’ve just put Stanley out and it makes me sad.
    I’ll never understand why people have fake Christmas trees. Sure they’re convenient and don’t make a mess but is that all? They can come in all sorts of colours and styles. But how can that compare to the beauty of a real tree? Even a tiny shrub has so much more beauty than plastic crap.

    I know and accept that real trees have their issues.
    You need to get a quality tree from a quality ...
  2. Narragansett

    A few decades ago, I drank Ballantine Ale pretty much every day for several years. I can imagine better tasting ales, but Ballantine was something that I could drink every day. Alas, Narragansett Brewing that produced it went down the tubes. One of the former owners bought the name and recipes, when they became available, and he has been building the company back up.

    I hope that Ballantine Ale will be revived in a few years. So far they have only restored about a half dozen brands, ...
  3. Predictions for the New Year

    I must admit I quite enjoyed doing my advent blog again and I figured it’d be nice to wrap up the year with another.

    I usually get depressed around this time. Either still depressed from Christmas, after Christmas or thinking about the past year and the oncoming new one depresses me. But at the moment I’m feeling pretty okay. Sort of not happy and not sad but comfortable.

    So. Predictions for the year
    - Some famous figure will die, possibly right after the new ...

  4. Reading, a bit

    by , 12-30-2017 at 12:40 PM (day in a life)
    Well I didn't get any books for Christmas, now that is rare. Except the last santa always gives me a present too so he got me 'The Hunting of the Snark' I had wanted to read it for a while and he (I) found a pretty copy with pictures. If the comment last santa doesn't make sense that is because here on the ice we have 13 of them and they come one each night starting 13 days before Christmas and the last one leaves gifts on the morning of the 24th, we celebrate on that day. Anyway he got me this ...

    Peace and mercy of Allah be on you....Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) explains that Sahabah (may Allah be pleased with them) of Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) had become fully and uniquely devoted in all respect and it was due to their excitement of true love for Allah the Exalted. Allah had created mutual love and affection in them. Now there is another Jama'at, the Jama'at of Promised Messiah, it has to develop qualities of Sahabah in themselves... Sahabah are ...
