I have seen them. They are out. Prepare to be condescended to from behind masks.

I saw a gang of them yesterday. They were on their way to Bents Garden Centre, and were in a state of feverish excitement.
I took a detour to avoid them.

I try to avoid them also. They will be buying things they dont need from there. The ones Ive seen have been going on a Picnic but with overpriced ready meals instead of making the sandwiches themselves. Their social cachet has been tainted.

They had UltraSonic toothbrushes with them because ` the bristles on ordinary toothbrushes harm your gums `.

Were they carrying an avocado in the other hand too?

Had to calm one of our local tribe down yesterday, and narrowly avoided a fatality. He was a vegan, and had accidentally put on a pair of leather shoes. He started to hyperventilate, and it was all I could do to hold him down. One of his friends arrived and managed to get some nut milk down him, but it was touch and go.
He came round to the house later to thank me, and offered to cleanse my aura, but I declined the offer.

They were carrying some Avocados, a packet of Kale and a bottle of Prosecco which they were planning to have for `Brunch `.

They will be telling us all how the Lockdown has been worse for them than the rest of us.

Well thank god for that.

I thought it was an euphemism for something else for a min then! Very Happy

I tried the Raiki shown in the video, and to be honest, I thought it was useless.

We started with the usual 'relax and think your in a forest' garbage. I went to about 4 sessions to give it a fair go, but wasn't convinced. The only benefit I got was having a lie down for an hour, but at £30 quid or so a session it was overpriced, with no real benefit.

I also find that my sonic toothbrush is not only less physical with my gums, but also gives a really good clean. Far better than an ordinary one.

The place to go for reiki is Oldham.
20 or so years ago, Oldham college ran a course that attracted 20+ students in the first year all of whom wanted to set up their own practice and as I was working with a number of NW authorities to support start ups back then, my team of advisers managed to get them all going and get some degree of business differentiation so they could all survive. All good until the next year when another 20 people graduated. And 20 more in year 3. Not sure if they're still churning them out but there must be more reiki practitioners per square foot in Oldham than anywhere on the planet.

Poor souls, they'll be waving their hands over each other at a great rate at this time of crisis and no money. I doubt it will make them feel better.

Sunlight, I find you to be somewhat of an anomaly.
Here you are ridiculing the so-called middle classes, yet you aspire to give the impression that you are indeed a member of that particular fraternity, or even a noblewoman according to Tennyson.

I am an anomaly in terms of being different. No-one is the same. I only poke fun at things to be silly. I dont like to be hateful at all. I am a working class Buddhist. I practise the middle way. We are living in the eternal now. There is no such thing as the future or the past, only now, the present. I love poetry too.
Reality should be sought. No delusions.

It wasn't a criticism, just an observation  Very Happy

The 'eternal now' is a concept I genuinely have difficulty with. Do Buddhists have mortgages ?

You have to look at it from the Hindu perspective whence it came. Basically Hindus believe in perpetual reincarnation and Buddhists seek release from the cycle of reincarnation (Nirvana) 
Eternal now is is about how you perceive time and moving awareness away from the present to include the past and potential futures which is why Buddhists are frequently banged up for not paying the rent on time.

Humans define their own meaning in life, and try to make rational decisions despite existing in an irrational universe.
And yet I'm still buying the Beano by the copy, instead of taking out a subscription. I've never really coped since the addition of another Bash Street Kid. Change confuses me.

Hhmmm. I'll have to go away and think about this.

I think science has proved beyond doubt that the universe is not irrational, in fact it is from the little we know it seems to be extremely predictable.

The enjoyment and excitement comes when we learn something new that doesn't fit into what we expected and have to delve deeper to understand why that is.

I like avocados, still see myself as being working class though.

Schopenhauer described the universe as 'non rational'. Science proves nothing 'beyond doubt'.

Who?

I had to look him up.

Seems he died in 1860.

Two years before James Clerk Maxwell brilliant work on electromagnetism/light and nearly 50 years before Einstein showed his genius.

Science proves more about certainty than doubt.

There's loads of things we don't know and haven't worked out, sure, but everything we have so far we can say for certain conforms to scientific discoveries and all are universal in their behaviour.

I'm fascinated this type of stuff and am actually rereading Brian Cox's BBC science documentary books, which if anyone is interested you can find two of them currently on video at BBC iplayer

I preferred the Dandy, and when I grew up, The Tiger, My brother had the Beano and The Lion.  Neither of us liked The Eagle.

I really miss Captain Hurricane from The Valiant. The man used to swing tanks around his head. Not sure calling German's 'sausage eaters' would be allowed now though.

Count yourselves lucky - my nana bought the Beano for my brother, Bunty for my sister and I got....Look and Learn. TBH I read them all.
