@Sandy
I'm surprised that there are only 2 Sandy's on CH, despite Sandy being a common female name. I've seen and met more people named Sandy than Christian, yet there's a category here for Christian, lol.

Continued: So, needless to say, I am glad I am no longer friends with her. She was nothing but a toxic person from day one who spent much too long in getting back to me.

It seems like the Witnesses your brother had the misfortunate nature of dealing with were most unkind to him. The ones I parleyed with were not so vile to me.

I haven't seen the film Stigmata, no. I tend to stay clear of movies with religious messages attached to them, religion has done nothing but incite conflict after all. Even the purist of its forms still incited conflict, of a nature. I just cannot abide by the corruption and soulness cruelty that so-called Men of God display to others around them. I think a person doesn't need to be religious to still be good, but at leas this movie highlights this premise nicely. Still, I am more likely to believe an advanced race of intelligent beings created humankind than a single entity, but either you slice it, it's the paradox itself. Who or what created this entity that we call God? You'll find no such musings amongst Jehovah's Witnesses. Ideology frightens them.

Until next time Sandy :)

That's what I put in the code to check for...when it hits that level a name category gets created. It was 6 at one point, but I changed it to 7.

Two silly mistakes in my comment to Bobby.

@ Christian 6ft5 and three eighths - Yes, I have noticed that quite a few names don't yet have a category; I came across one only the other day, and I was quite surprised as I thought it was common enough to warrant its own page. If only I could recall which name it was.... ๐Ÿค”?

Typical! Have a great weekend Christian! xxx ๐Ÿ˜‰

When there are 7 names or so, a category will be created for the name.

@ Bobby - It's a nice, quiet time of day, so I just read your compositions knowing that there'd be little risk of being disturbed.

Have you ever considered about creating categories for movies, or at least movie series? I know you already made categories for Marvel and DC, but they're more like franchises.
Editor Rob
There are only a few single movies, but some of the franchise series I may add some more for.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 29/Aug/19

There certainly wouldn't be any more, than if there was a category here for every first name. If you notice, there isn't a category for every first name, except for common English names like John, James, Peter etc.

@Sandy Cowell

Continued: Funny thing about that too, around 10 years ago or more, I received a PM message, back when YouTube was still using that sort of thing, by a friend I just made. She was adament about the world coming to an end in 2012 after reading about the Mayan Calendar. I had to reassure her that no such thing could possibly, but I was always open to the possibility of ghosts, demons, and any kind of supernatural presence that has been thought up by man. Thing is, real or not, people love the fantastical and will create vivid fantasies to this effect. I was no less a stranger to this sterotype at the age of 14. The only thing with Sokrates is that we would surely disagree on the matter of piety, he believes the gods or in this case, God is pious. I believe otherwise, which I've already explained before. Things are only pious because it pleases them, not because they actually are. For example, is it pious to systematically wipe out any nonbeliever who isn't a Jehovah's Witness? No, that's genocide.

I think given the ideal circumstances, a person will develop morals irrespective of their financial situation. Or even if they are religious or not. Believe it or not, morality and religion were a very close knit relationiship. When Darwin posed natural selection and evolution, this idea of morality was washed away since people were and I quote, "no better than cockroaches". I'm still an advocate that the universe and everything in it was designed and created, I mean, take a look around you, does complexity invent itself?

@Sandy Cowell

Subjects were a lot more versatile back then I suppose. I also reckon that teachers would have been teaching more than one subject at a time due to reasons that there were simply not enough teachers in the school system. Still, it's very interesting that you managed to pick up this kind of terminology at the grade school level. Nowadays, you don't see that kind of thing anymore. You'd have to go to university to even become familiar with half of the things I now know. Still, some would argue, such as a Jehovah's Witness, that university isn't necessary to learn things but they often bring up more practical pursuits like learning to garden or change a flat tire. I'm talking about hardcore knowledge like ideology and theology, engineering and whatnot. I hate this premise that self-education qualifies you to be a professional, it doesn't. You wouldn't trust a self-taught surgeon, would you? I surely wouldn't.

Yeah, Jehovah's Witnesses are pretty self-righteous people even if they claim all of that sort of judgement is coming from God, not from them. I'm all on board for living a morally virtuous lifestyle but not for the reasons of living to see Salvation, but because it's the right thing to do and that's the only reaosn why. Here I'm quoting one of Batman's lessons to his violent and bloodthirsty son, Damien al Ghul, I won't get too much into that but suffice to say, a lot of my morality actually comes from fictional characters. Now whether that's considered a safe habit or not, I really can't say, but fictional or not, these ideologies came from real people. From my experiences though, they're more or less pleasant enough people to be around, but only because they're hoping to bend you to their cause and organization. Honestly, it's more like a cult than a legit religious organization. For example, living to worship God or not, who and what authorizes you to go around knocking on people's doors and disturbing the peace of their household? And what right do you have to preemptively condemn people for not worshipping God as you claim yourselves to do so? I am referring to Jehovah's Witnesses here as a whole. I'm certain for all the cats you've got, that you're not a filthy or a degenerate person by any stretch of the imagination. Animals and even humans, will create a mess from time to time, animals even more so, but that's just the magnitude of life. Things do not persist, they decay and with time, they wilt away. Something clean doesn't stay clean forever, even with maintanence invovled, eventually it'll become dirty no matter what.

Another matter I'd like to discuss here with you, and which still relates to Jehovah's Witnesses, is my own mental state at the time I first became invovled with their beliefs. I wasn't a terrible person to begin with even as an Atheist, sure I sweared on occasion, but I didn't do the sorts of things that the Bible outlined as gravely sinful practices. I'm talking about the abuse of drugs, adultery, theft, inflicting major bodily harm on someone and so on and so forth. I was more or less, a good person with a flawed personality, just like everybody else. Now, when I first met this Jehovah's Witness, well, she had a few hazy ideas about the secular world and seemed to think anyone who wasn't a Jehovah's Witness was contaminated in some way or other. In fact, despite what she may say, I think she still does. Her ideas about pursuing postsecondary education were a major influence on me as well. I was so worried that I was somehow disappointing God that my cognitive performance at the college level took a hit and I was beginning to doubt my importance in the world. Well, it took a number of years to bypass that self-doubt and to realize that I have control over what I do and what I don't do. It's a deterministic universe after all and thus every human being has free will. Why should I have been any different?

Did you know she was offered scholarships and turned them all down just to pioneer? Now, let me explain what means, pioneer, in their terminology refers to someone who devotes extra time as a devotee to God. Not only did she throw away a good opportunity to educate herself further at the secular level but she did so for a very primitive reason. I'm not denying that religion can be a good thing if balanced in the right manner, but to sacrifice everything in the name of it, that's lunacy! So, at only a year older than myself, all she's done up until now has been wasting away at pointless jobs doing simplistic things. What's ironic is that she now regrets not purusing postsecondary education when she had the chance.

I could fill an entire tome with my thoughts about how dangerous thinking it is to confine one's self to religious pursuit at the sacrifice of all else, but that's for another time.

You hit the nail on the coffin with the brainwashing part. Many of them are born into it and not really given a choice to pursue anything else and if they do, they are ostracized, even from their own family. I don't care what the reason is, family is family. If you can't accept your own flesh and blood, your ilk, for choosing to do what makes them happy, within good reason, then what kind of person are you? Not a good one. Also, within their religion, the marriage rate is very high and they oftne marry very young. Why? Simple answer. They can't keep it in their pants, to put it mildly.

To be continued:

It's the opposite actually. The rarer the surname is, the more lucrative it is to refer to a celeb by their surname. The only exception is maybe when the surname is too long or too hard to pronounce correctly.

Editor Rob: Would you consider developing a celebrity lifestyle portal as a means of generating more advertising and commission revenues?
Editor Rob
Ad rates are below average in a niche like celebrity height because the scope is more limited and the type of visitor is more passive/entertainment minded when visiting rather than in a buying frame of mind.

I have an interest in numbers and stats, so this site has been a good fit.

I'm not sure about lifestyle of celebs - I feel it's best sticking to topics you enjoy or have interest in, else you'll find after a while it will become a big struggle to continue.

That's not to say there is another area I might add to the site ;)
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 25/Aug/19
@Rob
Are there any celebs here whom you downgraded by 1.25" or more? I've only seen 1" downgrades at the very most.
Editor Rob
I'm sure there have been many adjustments over the years. Especially in the first couple of years, it was about getting pages up because it was far easier to rank on search engines with limited 'knowledge boxes/panels' like these engines have over last 10 years.

Sometimes there may be occasional mistakes like typing a 4 instead of 5 for the inches part, but I think they are rare.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Aug/19
@ Christian - Some surnames are so rare though, in the celeb world especially, that it's probably more lucrative to use first names. An interesting factor might be that you, or originally your parents of course, select your own first names and they are famous for having meanings, i.e. Leonard means 'lion strong', Peter means 'a rock' and Paul means 'small'. Do people 'measure up' to their name's meanings? That would be rather fascinating, wouldn't it?

PS:

I wouldn't half find it funny to have a page filled with Trumps! ๐Ÿ˜ท

@ Bobby - I came across the term 'tabula rasa' via my geography and later English school teacher, believe it or not! This teacher would digress from 'the subject' frequently, but nobody minded. We learnt far more from his diversions than if he'd stuck purely to geography, for example. He was, I'd say, the most popular teacher of them all and only about 5ft5 or 6, but simply commanded respect - and he got it. He raised his voice so rarely that if he did let go, one of us had to have been incredibly disrespectful.

Not long ago, I discussed with MJKoP my brother's experience with Jehovah's Witnesses. I was confined to my bedroom at that time (pre my hip operation) and my overly talkative brother is the type of person who, if someone knocks at the door and starts talking, he will join in. When I heard about how dictatorial they were, I couldn't believe my ears. They criticised his appearance and moaned about getting cat hairs on their clothes from our chairs. Did they expect my brother to roll out the red carpet every time they burst in? It would appear so, as their chief 'witness' said to my brother, "Would you have shown Jesus into an unhoovered room like this and answered the door in grubby clothes?"

Huh! Likening themselves to Jesus Christ was outrageous and even sinful. They'd turn up unannounced and it turned my brother into a nervous wreck. One of our cats, Manelia the Second, was run over as a direct result of one of their visits and then I had to say something. Yet they are so forward that just recently, they've knocked at the door and tried rabbiting to me! I said to them, "I have all the faith I need, thank you very much, and I don't wish to be brainwashed by the likes of you! Now please go away." I wouldn't put it past them to have the audacity to turn up again! Next time, if indeed such a time arises, I won't be so polite and I will bring up the distasteful matter of them having compared themselves to Jesus Christ. And to think - they are supposed to be worshippers of one God! I think they are obsessed with their own egos and are anything but humble and meek, so I can't see THEM inheriting the Earth, can you? They talked obsessively about the end of the World. This, to vulnerable people, could prove nightmarish and dangerous. I fully admit to being one such person, having suffered from frightening dreams for years as a consequence of seeing the movie 'The Day After'. I think I was 22 at the time.

I never knew that only the Israelites held the belief that life is finite. I do believe that you'd get on very well with Socrates, I honestly do! You are broadening my mind and I am well over twice your age!

I can imagine that there have been bad as well as good parents as far back as the human race dates. Some people are just not cut out for parenthood, but alas, this doesn't stop them from fulfilling certain urges. Bringing up a child with a good set of values doesn't depend solely on a sound financial background; it takes an abundance of time but most of all, it takes love.

So until the next time Bobby....

I've enjoyed writing to you, and always do!

I think Rob should've went with surnames instead of first names for categories, because surnames are often the "main" name of a person, especially when it comes to entertainment, sports, politics etc. It's the same reason why Donald Trump is called "President Trump" and not "President Donald" or PM Boris Johnson's called "Prime Minister Johnson", not "Prime Minister Boris".

@Sandy Cowell

I took an entry into psychology course back when I was still figuring out which program I would major in when I was still at the college level education and I learned a fair amount about human development cycles in conjunction with psychological theory. Tabula rasa was one of the terms I learned regarding the mental capacity of a newborn - that is to say, a blank slate.

It's somewhat alarming to me that even as early as your generation, there were still the sort who were unfit to parenthood. This is something I associate with my generation, but it's interesting that it has reverberated since your heyday.

It's an interesting premise, I recently had a falling out with a friend of 7 years who is a Jehovah's Witness solely because I do not subscribe to her beliefs. When I raised the point that morality is not confined to one set of beliefs let alone religion she still solemnly chose to believe that her primary focus in life is God and everyone else came secondary. This is an example of something I wrote to her recently, and perhaps you may agree with my thinking:

"So, youโ€™re saying your relationship with someone should only be benefiting you? I donโ€™t think thatโ€™s how friendships work, Anjanette. Itโ€™s a bit selfish to think that way. Iโ€™m friends with people that have different ways of thinking than myself and are pursuing different careers and studies. They have different philosophies but they still serve a purpose. Iโ€™ve never once attempted to discourage you or tell you to think differently than how you do, so why expect the same of me or anyone else in return? Part of being human is that everyone is different and youโ€™re also the one who says that diversity should be celebrated. Shouldnโ€™t diversity of thought also then be a facet that ought to be acknowledged and respected? Do you expect Ryan to share your beliefs knowing he is Jewish? Yet you still communicate with him, do you not? Even if not very often, you still do. I donโ€™t think itโ€™s ethical to deny someone your correspondence or companionship because they might be Catholic and youโ€™re a Jehovahโ€™s Witness. Weโ€™re all human beings trying to get by in life. We shouldnโ€™t be disqualifying each other from friendship. So long as someone is a kind and genuine human being, then what more can you expect from them?"

The thing I most detest about Jehovah's Witnesses is their exclusivity and that is something I highlighted in the quoted email above. If human beings are capable of good acts then who are we, as people, to have the authority to judge their validity for companionship? Commonality is important but not to the extreme of theology let alone ideology. Greg's got a different way of thinking than I do and we're still friends, for example.

It's interesting you talk about the era before the World Wide Web (WWW) as being the dark ages. Last year when I was taking a fundamentals of editing class towards my degree, an older gentlemen, I would say in his 60s, possibly even 70s remarked on how the 1960s were, "the dark ages". I found it particularly humorous but my peers didn't seem to grasp his meaning which I found troubling. Are people perhaps just ignorant of history or do they fear ostracism?

If I could meet any person in history, I'd go back a good 2000 years and speak to the great thinker, Sokrates himself. I think he and I would have some very interesting conversations together about the nature of piety and whether the gods or God represent as their Essence or if things are pious solely due to the approval of their divine favour. I lean more towards the latter, things are pious simply because the gods or God favours them and not because they are pious in nature which is what Sokrates argued. Yes, the existence of the afterlife wasn't a question of skepticism during polytheism, it was really only the Israelites who believed that life ceased after death. In poetry, death is equated to a great slumber or sleep hence the expression, "I'll sleep when I'm dead."

It's nice chatting with you, Sandy :)

You're the only person willing to entertain my existential thoughts right now.

@ Bobby - Tabula rasa - very interesting, very Latin! In case anybody is curious, it means a smooth and erased tablet, the sort of state of mind you are born with.

I never knew that little boy unfortunately, but had I done so, I would have done my utmost to help him. I did know a little girl that same year, and what she was doing in her father's charge, I will never know. I used to feed her when her father had spent his money on.... other things. She was 5 years old, bless her, and her name was Amelia. She was a pretty little thing and introduced herself to me one morning. I thought, "What a delightful child!"

I choose to believe that we are all born good and in some extreme cases, our upbringings can turn us bad. Just recently, I saw a film on a serial killer called Henry, and what he had to endure as a child. I'd only ever seen films which concentrate on his bad side; had he not endured what he did as a boy, there would be many more people alive today. That certainly bore out that evilness is a state of mind.

Yes, hero complexes, magalomania, the sort of thing Hitler had, and how many millions were to suffer? My Mum used to see him on her way to school in the early thirties and she took an instant disliking to him. She was about 7, so it was probably 1930+. She referred to him as 'a little man', so when I went to his page, I think this coloured my judgement of his height. I suppose 5ft8 wasn't too bad a height for those days!

You think exactly how I used to in my youth. I'd hang around with people older than myself because I was interested in what life was like before my living memories. Yes, I vividly remember the 70s yet I also recall from 1964 onwards, when I was 3. I remember what was going through my head back then and I couldn't work out why the kids who were queueing up for their injections would be screaming their heads off. They were my age, after all! My most disturbing memory was when my Mum went to Germany, taking my brother and leaving me behind. I stayed with my Dad and his girlfriend, and, if the truth be told, I reckon I had a more enjoyable time than he did. My Grandmother was very upset when she realized that I had been left behind. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

If I could meet any person in history, I wouldn't have to go back very far. I'd choose Christopher Lee. He was born in the same year as my Mum, 1922, but even before he was out of his teens, he had witnessed some atrocities that many of us won't see in a lifetime, and still he went on to be one of the most successful actors of all time. What a hero! My favourite film of his is 'The Devil Rides Out', in which he plays a knowledgeable nobleman and it really suited him. Have you seen the original 'Wicker Man', Bobby? It bears out the way life once was, in Pagan times. I suppose throughout history, man has been looking for a higher power. Even the Vikings had this mind set. They weren't afraid of dying because they were convinced that Life went on. I have a DVD box set which explains everything from a Viking point of view, how they lived and how fervent their beliefs were.

As a person who remembers only too well what times were like before the World Wide Web was invented, let me tell you, it sucked! You had to go to the library just to find out the answer to a question that was burning away at you, and then go through a pile of books. I get urges every day to find out the answers to questions, and I don't have to go any further than my phone. It must be ever so helpful when you're studying, and to me, it's a luxury that I really appreciate because I remember the dark ages only too well! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cheers Bobby!

Always great to chat with you!

All the Best,

Sandy xxx ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

@Sandy Cowell

Do you know if he is successful or not? This usually proves that children are not their parents and their circumstances do not necessarily inhibit moral goodness. This also validates that human beings in their most infantile state as tabula rasa (or blank slate) will inevitably develop good characteristics irrespective of who has raised them. Evilness is a condition of a fractured and tortured mind, but the Bible does say that bad association spoils useful habits. So, there's something to learn from that proverb of old even if people today highlight the Bible's archaic and patriarchal stance. Some people will invariably develop hero complexes and see fit to their duty to assist all they know that practice bad habits, but I don't think it's in our place to shepherd those around us. The best we can do is to focus on ourselves and hope that our example is an inspiration to people around us.

Given your age, you most assuredly had accesses to the most rudimentary video games while growing up. Perhaps you were fortunate enough to have owned a Commodore 64 or a Nintendo Entertainment System. On a separate note, I think it's quite fascinating that you remember the 70s through to the 90s. I wonder what it must have been like for you and how you dealt with technological advancements over time, I think it'd be unsettling to remember a time before the internet, ahem, World Wide Web to be precise.

Well, I'm not looking to make millions, but a modest and comfortable life is all I ask for. Your statement about your area turning into a cesspool with the presence of that man as your neighbour also brings me to another point, do we fault the government or the immigrants? Perhaps the educational system is to blame? Either way you slice it, something has to be done. Regardless, affluence doesn't impress me especially when the people involved are dumber than bricks.

No, I think Jesus would be saddened to learn of the state of the world as it is today.

@ Bobby - Hi Bobby! It's amazing to think that the little boy who had such neglectful parents is about 37 years old now. Fortunately, sometimes kids like this completely rebel against the bad habits shown them by their parents. I've known a few such incidents. All the kids I've met round my way have been brought up very well, I'm happy to say. I met lots of little girls who live down my road when I was out and about every day doing voluntary work for two animal charities and collecting for a kidney charity. They have grown up to be lovely responsible adults and I know that when they have kids of their own, they will make good parents. Some people are far more suited to parenthood than others, you're right in saying that, and it's almost 100% down to how they've been brought up themselves. I met the less than ideal parents because I refused to walk away from a certain social circle as I feared for the safety of some of the vulnerable members, of which my ex-boyfriend was one. He did know some very nice people too. I suppose in this life, you have to take the rough with the smooth.

I haven't yet got into playing video games, but they must be very popular. I mean, look at all the movies that exist as offshoots of video games! I think anything that gets the adrenaline going will prove successful. I used to play a game called Asteroids down my local pub and I spent a small fortune perfecting my skills and getting my name first on the chart! I'm not generally competitive, but something somebody said when I got started - about people who can't play properly making lousy drivers - made me want to prove him wrong. I did! Other than that, the only games I tend to play are board games like Scrabble, which is my favourite, and Chess.

One thing you will really appreciate when you finish university and get yourself going in your career of choice, something that is suited to your intellect or you will be bored rigid, is that you will have the money to move away to an area where you don't have nosy, gossiping idiots for neighbours. You do well in that you ignore them. They must lead very crappy lives if all they can do is sit together and talk rubbish. My whole life has been turned upside down since the moving in of the bloke next door, who has kicked up a fuss about my cats and tried to involve the neighbours, but only the ones who didn't know me to begin with. His brother has been in the news for setting fire to an effigy of a block of flats where people lost their lives, posting it online and poking fun. This has caused untold heartache for the survivors of the tragedy. The brothers are property millionaires only because their father was murdered. I doubt if they've done a proper day's work in their lives. Judging from how they speak and write, they haven't been educated at all. This used to be a good area or my parents would never have moved here. It isn't anymore! I can so understand how your neighbours must wind you up. My whole life has been messed up since that man moved in. My Dad used to live in Northamptonshire, and that was a really peaceful area - a proper, close-knit little village. One day I would like to live in an area like that.

It's a less than likeable human trait to gossip and stir up trouble, and it only takes one person to kick start this behaviour. Others follow like lambs. Having said that, there are so many good human traits as well, and they are the ones we should aim to adopt, of course. It's just unfortunate that throughout history, a few bad eggs have taken over and caused wars and constant battling amongst the human race. I don't think Jesus bargained for all the religious strife that was to follow when he sacrificed himself for us, do you?

Cheers Bobby and have a good week!

@Sandy Cowell

It's quite easy. Before their presence was alerted to me by my parents, I was ignorant of their existence because I simply never bothered to look across the street and see them. That's just the kind of person I am. I don't bother to familiarize myself with everything and everyone in my surroundings because their existence is conditional to me. It's not the good kind of curiosity either, not when you know someone is a notorious gossiper.

Yeah, I've forgotten about them entirely and I don't care if they harbour ill-will towards me. At least I've got ambition and intelligence and see myself in a much better spot down the road. Much more recently, last year I would say, he also invited me to attend a MeetUp of his to play board games. I was so bored the whole evening that I was glad when it was over. I'd rather immerse myself in a video game than play obscure board games.

An upbringing like that is sure to spell trouble later on when he is older. To have such disregard for others around him will do more harm than good in the long run. Suffice it to say, I think they were just terrible parents and should not have been allowed by the government, to have children. Do we really need to be mass producing and continuing bad trends by forcing them onto the younger generations?

I think some people are just gifted with the character to have children and some are not. A firm but fair hand goes a long way to creating and restoring discipline in a chaotic household as well. That little boy probably wound up in jail more than once while growing up, so who knows what happened to him. I'm pleased at least to learn that you knew at least one couple who had normal children that weren't mischievous in the kind of way that disgusted you.

I suppose that's true, but most people don't appreciate academics to begin with. I only hope I have the patience and tolerance to put up with untoward criticism later in life.

Talk to you soon, Sandy :)

@ Bobby - I don't know how you're able to contain yourself with such nosy neighbours, watching your every move. To have such a curious grandmother can't be much fun either, so I think I have reason to count my blessings that both my grandmothers had loads of grandkids! My maternal grandmother only had 1 granddaughter - me - and she had 8 grandsons. She accepted me for the little person I was, and loved me unconditionally. She died when I was 9 and my paternal grandmother had so many grandkids that I would have to sit and write them all down because I don't know off hand. She always remembered our birthdays, which meant a lot. I was 30 when she died, at the age of 94. Both my grandfathers had long died by the time I came along.

I, too, would take offence if my grandmother took an interest in my education only so that she could mouth off to her friends and acquaintances. Talk about friends, the people you met through your genuine friend Joey sound like they're best forgotten about! Now I shall tell you a little story of some visit I endured back when I was 22...

A male friend of mine who lived in my road took me round to see a couple he knew. They had a little son, who was running around without any pants of any kind on. When I asked why, I was met with the response, "Well, it's not as if he's at school yet!"

I took it that this was therefore a regular thing. Beer was served that evening, and the little lad approached me with a glass. I said thank you to him but was then proudly told, "No - he wants some!" He was about 3 years old.

It wasn't long before that vile 'tobacco' appeared on the scene, which makes me throw up. He was so used to it that he didn't wretch at all. I couldn't believe it. I witnessed worse goings-on that evening, including the use of powder, and the child licked the mirror. The father said, "Grab your Mummy's tit$!" and he did so and tried to grab mine.

It came so naturally to him that I thought that when he starts school, he will do the same thing to his teacher. It was only a matter of time before he would be taken into care, and rightly so, but HE DIDN'T ASK TO BE BORN! To rob a child of his innocence is dreadful. The parents would splash out money on drugs, but when it came to the clothing of their child, that was unimportant.

Had I got to know this excuse for a couple any better, i.e. if they'd lived in my vicinity, I'm the sort of person who would have bought the kid clothes and made sure he was properly fed, but they weren't my friends. I was so disgusted by what I saw that night that I've never forgotten it. In contrast, I knew a couple who were so excited by the up-and-coming birth of their daughter in 1987, that she was speaking little words and able to take steps at 6 months of age. I met her, her Mum and her younger sister around 10-12 years later as the couple had moved. Both girls were eloquent, polite and a credit to their parents. It doesn't matter how old you are when you become parents, as long as you do so with all the love and enthusiasm that nature has within you. Yes, and children are your ultimate legacy.

I cannot see a person such as yourself not leaving his mark on the planet - honestly. You have interests way beyond most your age and you are bettering yourself with a top education. It didn't take me long for the penny to drop that those who try to degrade a person's education/background are, in fact, seething with jealousy. You will encounter plenty of this in your lifetime, though hopefully you can limit this mockery by keeping decent company worthy of you and others like you.

Have a great week, Bobby!

All the very best,

@Sandy Cowell

I just find it a tremendous shame that I still haven't made my mark on the world yet. At the very least, if nothing else, I'd like to have a family and that would be my legacy, continuing my ancient lineage. I suppose there aren't any rules for when you ought to accomplish things and when you finally succeed but everything feels like such a competition nowadays. Everyone is always asking the common questions, "Do you work somewhere? Are you married? Do you have kids? Where did you go to school?" As though life were just a checklist and people are rushing to be at the top of the pyramid. My own grandmother, on my mother's side, is especially nosy about these matters and is always asking about my schooling, and that's not from genuine and familial curiosity, she is a notorious gossiper. I find that most old people are, gossipers. I know of some neighbours, in fact, not by name, who do nothing but sit outside in their glass enclosed patio watching people. They do this day in and day out, from dawn until dusk. No matter where you go and how long it takes you to complete your tasks of the day, they will be there, watching you as you return. Don't people like that have anything better to do? Do they not realize how rude it is to stare so openly and without regard for a human being's right to privacy?

Yeah, you've told me about this before. I remember the transaction well. It seems to me that your boyfriend only worshipped the idea of you and paraded your accomplishments around as though they were his. People are often quick to demoralize those with higher ambitions and higher thoughts than their own, not always, but I find that those who lack the qualifications are judgemental of those who have taken the time to educate themselves at a loftier level. Often times this may be because they have had terrible experiences with such individuals who boasted their own intellectual achievements and made them, in turn, feel stupid. I understand how you feel. When I was 18 years old, I attended a night school class centred on worldly genocides as an interdisciplinary focus and I met this other guy there, two years my senior, named Joey. We had a lot of things in common and were both of the geekier nature. We still occasionally keep in touch to this day, but what I wanted to share with you was how a couple of years later, when I was still fooling around at college with no clue to my future, we took a trip to a smaller town when I was 20-21 years old and we were accommodated by some friends of his. Let me tell you, they lived like animals, and the insult to injury was, despite their sinful lifestyle, they subscribed to Catholicism. Can you believe it!? They smoked Cannabis, and drank like sailors, and as the only chaste one, I refused all such attempts to engage in their hooligan behaviours. I lost at least a good two days of sleep that summer and must have drank about a litre of coffee to stay awake. Anyway, not only did they live like animals, their house was filthy too and one of them had a baby. Can you imagine raising a child in such a disordered environment? I commented to my friend, Joey, as we were taking a stroll one afternoon on how disturbing I found it, as to how they lived and pointed out the philosophical contradictions of their lifestyle. Their subscription to religious thought but complete disregard to purity. Needless to say, apparently, one of them had been following behind us, for some reason, and took offence to my words. So, they don't like me. Why? Because I spoke the truth and the truth hurts most. As Hugh Jackman once said, "People only get upset when there's an element of truth." My refusal to drink and become inebriated also enabled me to help my friend find his misplaced wallet, as he had dropped it on a particular evening at a park. I can also tell you that although I am of age, I could not stomach the night club scene and was out of there in 30-seconds flat. I also only took a sip of the odd cocktail that was given to me. I'm definitely a goody two shoes. So, I certainly understand and can relate to your experiences from your younger years.

But thank you for your kind words, I realize I am still very young and have a lot of learning and growing up to do, but my only hope is that one day I can look back from a place of modest success doing something I love with people that I love.

Talk soon, Sandy :)

How much do you think these loafers give? I'd say roughly 1/4", unless there's a hidden padding inside. Click Here
Editor Rob
I was actually looking at some footwear and a few lower styles yesterday. It all depends on how high the insole is. I've seen 1/4 inch soles on some loafers but the insole is built up so you get 1/2 inch, others are quite thin...I think 1/3rd is quite a thin shoe, 1/4 is paper thin, you feel every stone on them.

@ Bobby - I have just found your reply to me hiding behind a load of emojis, so apologies for the delay in replying.

I think if we're honest, we all have our insecurities. It's what makes us human and a human without humility wouldn't be very nice to know in my opinion. I can relate to what you say about people in their early to mid twenties already having families, but even in my day, I'd say it was more around the 50% mark. There are no hard and fast rules as to when you should have children, as long as you have love and stability to offer them.

Never question your cognitive abilities. When I was 26, I came home from work one evening to find that my boyfriend had found my qualifications and displayed them all over the flat in front of his friends. I wasn't terribly pleased. He'd had no right to do that. Although initially I received compliments, what followed what anything but. Nobody round there had qualifications, and after that, many of the people systematically went out of their way to bring me down, 'put me in my place' as it were, and that even included my boyfriend. Yes, these were people who started their families very young, when I was still studying. They tried to make me feel like an underdog, what the Germans call an 'untermensch', and yes, it did have a bad effect on me. I was berated by my boyfriend for not knowing how to prepare a perishing bong, the sort of thing Cheech and Chong smoke, so you can imagine the sort of thing that they were getting up to when I was gaining my certificates! There was a 15-year-old boy who could do just that, whereas I could not - and still cannot! It doesn't bother me at all. When I would come back from work, the whole place was sometimes filled with that horrid smoke stench, and I would come in and be sick straight away. They thought it was hilarious. I started returning home to my Mum's - and I told her why. She called them 'wasters'. My working days were spent round my Mum's, and who would turn up on Friday afternoons - my pay days - with his hand out? Yes, my boyfriend! If you don't conform to other people's 'standards', they'll do their utmost to bring you down. One woman who saw my certificates dubbed me 'Dolly Day Dream'. I later found out that she was selling drugs at a profit and going on holiday, pretending to be an office worker! I doubt if she could recite the alphabet, and the way she spoke said it all. She even 'borrowed' me one evening to take me to a nightclub of class to try to seduce herself a guy! She copped off with two, one for her and one supposedly for me. While she was busy in the back seat with her guy, all I did with 'mine' was to chat! It turned out that he was familiar with my Dad, having met him at Biggin Hill airport, which displays some aeroplanes dating back to the Second World War, possibly before - and flying lessons are also available. He told me she said that I 'work' with her! I said I didn't and he replied, "I know!"

That we just conversed that night was self-understood. I never met the guy again and he didn't expect it. Many years later, I found this woman working in a shop. Any job is a respectable job, but she couldn't even count out my change properly. Say no more....

What you say about having led a disciplined life is a good thing. To grow up without it leads to chaos, the sort that I encountered in that relationship, for want of a better word. I was trying to save him from his self-destructive lifestyle, but five-and-a-half years later, he died. He had been abusing prescription drugs, which had been vastly over-prescribed. I was there when he died.

It is never good to compare yourself unfavourably to other people. Obviously, being at University, you are going to meet some really clever and ambitious types, the sort of people who you should be associating with. You have to learn to accept and enjoy the compliments you receive. You didn't get where you did today without hard work. Ignore the idiots who can only pick up on your shortcomings. You know they are jealous of you, don't you?

Given time, you'll be able to relate what you can on paper verbally. At 25, I hadn't grown up yet, and I still have a long way to go! Many don't grow up until they're in their 30s and 40s, and some not at all. All we can expect from ourselves is to do our best - and if people still pick holes in you, they aren't the right company you should be keeping.

I sincerely hope that you soon get your chance to shine. I'm sure you will. What I see is an over-critical young guy who has a great deal to offer and is just waiting for the chance to prove himself.

Your day will come, Bobby!

All the Very Best,

@Sandy Cowell

The problem with me Sandy, is that I'm an over-thinker. It's not that I've been ridiculed or spurned my entire life or haven't been loved enough. I have plenty of that, discipline too, but there are moments when criticisms for my mistakes overshadow any goodness to my deeds and character. My intelligence has always been something others speak highly about, to flattering degrees, but when I am berated for making little errors, it calls into question, many of the compliments I have received about my cognitive faculties. Suffice it to say, it's easier to comment on one's flaws than on one's virtue, and it seems to be the cultural norm amongst my own people to be stingy with praise. I can understand the principle behind this, too much praise leads to a haughty disposition after all, but when you go your entire life only hearing about all the wrong you've done or how you'll never change, it doesn't do any good towards restoring your self-confidence. And I am unfortunately, a sensitive person deep down inside, but whether this is a weakness or a strength, I cannot comment.

I don't really need someone to understand me, but a chance to prove my worth would be a tremendous asset to strengthening my self-confidence. If you go your whole life without the chance to succeed, it really embitters you, and I'm turning 25 this August. Most people my age had kids and a steady job as far back as your generation when you were growing up. I know times are different and more is required to reach the same goal, but this is too much. I hate to say it, but we need some kind of catastrophe to diminish the world population by at least 2/3rds so that jobs are easier to get. We're overpopulated anyway.

I can communicate, but doing so orally is not my strong suit. I'm too honest for my own good and learning to lie to succeed leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Unfortunately, honesty has been sapped from this world and the only to get on top is to step on everyone else trying to earn a living. I'm not saying I'd ever do such a thing but if lying about what I can do ensures I can earn a living, then I will.

@ Sandy Cowell - No they go, โ€œyeah, yeah, yeahโ€, and I have heard, โ€œyeah, yeahโ€, said plenty of times too! I did once hear a woman say, โ€œyeah, yeahโ€, so there are no hard and fast rules and I heard a man say โ€œhuhโ€ once too!
I suppose when someone says โ€œhuhโ€ it could mean a few things, that another person is talking bull, that they want something repeating, or that they donโ€™t understand what someone is saying! Itโ€™s also sometimes easier for someone to say โ€œhuhโ€ than to actually speak in full sentences and sometimes someoneโ€™s mood may make them so that they prefer to say as little as possible.
I like small words like โ€œhuhโ€ and I also think of the name Hugh when it is said, itโ€™s great to use all sorts of words when you are writing! You can bet your bottom dollar that I have said this word a few times in my life!

@ MSJC - Toilet humour is the oldest brand of humour their is! Well, actually it's flatulence. There was a question on 'The Chase' on what has been making the human race laugh for the longest, and Jenny Ryan was the Chaser. Good old Jenny! She got it right! I wrote about it on her page - of course...

@Sandy Cowell

I only think that way because other people in their 20s are working full-time jobs or interning for positions suited to their studies and I haven't done any of that. The reason why is because all my attempt to apply myself elsewhere have been met with resistance. All my life people have been shutting the door in my face. Sure, I'm entering my 3rd year of university and that's probably better than what some people have done with their lives, but I feel like I've been tied to a tree so when I'm in motion, I am not going anywhere. I'm just moving in place. That's what my life feels like right now. I'm moving, but I don't seem to be going anywhere. If someone asked me what my greatest legacy was, I couldn't give them an honest answer because the truth is, I haven't done anything worthwhile with my life.

I used to subscribe to the Zodiac stuff, but not anywhere. I'm supposed to be a Leo, but don't feel like one. Leos are supposed to be flamboyant and outgoing, and I am the complete opposite of that. Well, I am prone to underestimating myself because no one has ever praised me once in my life. I've always been criticized. I've never once been given a compliment or a praiseful comment about my abilities, it's always about what mistakes I've made. So, I have extremely low self-esteem as a result and just try to put on a brave face for everyone else, but they don't know the damaged person inside. I'm sorry, I don't mean to be a downer, but I'm not in a good emotional place in the moment and no one else I talk to seems to care enough to talk me through it. I try to look at funny things or watch funny cartoons, but it only helps to take my mind off of things temporarily. What I need is a serious makeover of my life, like a good job so I can keep busy.

Ah, yeah. In the Netherlands, their health care systems enables doctors to do checkups of patients in the comfort of their own homes. I'm sorry about your headache, I had another one yesterday myself and I think all this overthinking I do is what causes it. I was also nauseated. So, I wasn't having a good day. Nowadays everything is so impersonal and cold, people used to care about their community once, but I feel not anymore.

It's a shame about your TV breaking. I'd probably suffer an existential crisis if I had to go without a form of entertainment for a prolonged amount of time. But if I had pets and they wanted to play around, I'd make them do it outdoors so nothing gets broken inside the house.

The hot weather wouldn't be an issue if there was zero humidity, but it's definitely humidity that I hate the most. If the climate were drier, you could find relief indoors and in cool places right away. The moisture in the air just traps everything and doesn't allow the heat to dissipate in the air properly. But Germany must have been nice, I'd like to go to Germany someday.

Music is nice, I always listen to that when on the go. It's mostly to drown out everyone else and keep strangers from engaging me in conversation but the music itself is nice to listen too.

Thank you for your kind words, Sandy. At this point, I am remised to simply let life play out as it does and hope a good opportunity comes my way.

Until next time.

URGHH! If you saw that spectacle, wouldn't it put you off your bacon?

But I have a very sad story about a pig and my Mum when she was a child. She had an Uncle ๐Ÿ˜ who ran a farm. My Mum had made friends with a pretty pink pig and on the day he was taken to the slaughterhouse, he knew. He was squealing his poor little head off. Animals know, you know. Pigs are highly intelligent and this young pig was no exception. That night, my Mum had a boiled egg for dinner - not bacon. I can't remember when I last ate meat. We can get by perfectly well without it.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jul/19
Hi Bobby!

I certainly don't consider that going to University and taking a degree equates you with someone who hasn't achieved anything. You are tremendously hard on yourself. If you get turned away from a menial, simplistic job, it's their loss, not yours! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ–•

So it's your Birthday next month and to be just 25 is VERY young. You're barely out of your teens yet! Does that make you a Leo ๐Ÿฆ or, if you were born at the end of the month, you are a Virgoan. โ™ I like Leo people, probably because their sign symbolises a cat, but having said that, two of my boyfriends have been Virgos. One had a particularly good sense of humour and used to watch comedy videos all the time. I was staying in a kind of house share and that's how I met him. Whenever I passed his room, I could hear him laughing his @rse off! I think if you hang around with funny people, it has a good and positive effect on you. I hope you find some of these people to light up your life, I sincerely do. Saying that you have the humour of a stiff board had me giggling, so I don't think you are humourless at all!

On Sunday afternoon, I felt really ill. I had, and still do have, a filthy great headache, but on Sunday, when I lay down, I was trembling and sweated my whole bed out. The cats must have thought they were having some kind of free fairground ride! I still have a temperature and don't feel at all right. When I was a kid, the doctors used to come out and do home visits, but not now. I have a real gripe with that! Yes, that's my moan over with for today; I mean, how the blazes can you make the surgery when you're not AOK? You can't, for crying out loud!

The following day, my telly packed up to boot. I need a new one, any old thing will do me to tide me over. Ideally, I need a fairly big one, because when the cats chase each other, namely Ottica chasing Manelia, Ottica has had the darn thing over - THREE TIMES! I don't know whether that's been a contributory factor to it breaking down. I don't thing she would manage to knock a big one over. Perhaps I should have my new one - when it comes - stuck to the wall.

The closest I have ever come to a continental climate was when I was 7, 8 and 9, and spending my Summers in Germany. It was far hotter than the climate experienced where I live in England, but I can't imagine how uncomfortable it must be in Canada. I, too, would find it quite loathsome! I take cold baths when it's terribly hot, but then, within minutes, I feel hot and sticky again. You are talking to the right person as regards the hatred of hot weather. I've known people for whom the hot, sweaty weather causes them to have migraines. Who invented it? The same pesky factor as the one who invented fleas? What's the point of the parasites? I have met a great many cat owners who say that the flea drops don't work, to which I reply, "You'd be better off buying a home flea spray, and using it in every single room. Then, use the flea drops!"

In my ample experience, it's the best way.

I'm listening to music now, which will doubtless reflect in the comments I choose to do. Music has a very upbeat effect on people, and animals like it too. I haven't checked out today's birthdays yet. I have found a new app which tells you which celebrities have birthdays. It's been proving quite useful. I have to visit the app every day, because I fear I might miss out on someone I really like; someone who, be it an actor or a musician, has afforded me a great deal of pleasure. Oh, how I miss having a television! I can't wait to get a new one. ๐Ÿ“บ

I know what you are talking about when you say that good people can be overshadowed by bad. Unfortunately, in our World, which contains so much beauty and positivity, the dominant people tend to get their way, and mess things up for the meek people. I've known many such examples, alas. But what can we do about it? I'd say, "Do your best to avoid them, and don't let them screw with your head."

Seek out some nice, funny people who appreciate you. I feel you have a great deal to offer this World and I can see you getting yourself a truly excellent job, and one that is worthy of your talents.

Wishing you all the very best, Bobby!

@Sandy Cowell

A large component of this is because I can't seem to land a job anywhere. All the places I've applied to haven't called or emailed me. The one interview I had for a clerk position didn't lead anywhere either. I'm not very good at communicating with people or selling my qualities with others, and I'm about as humorous as a stiff board. I suppose my outwardness intimidates or just derails people from giving me the job. Getting into volunteer positions is easy but I'm turning 25 this August and I haven't done much with my life. The only thing I can say is that I am studying for a Bachelor's degree which will I hopefully complete by 2020-2021.

I don't suffer from any medical or mental conditions, the only affliction I have is human nature. Normally, the summer is one should be most upbeat and cheerful because the weather is nice, but here in Canada, with this Continental climate, it's not nice. I don't mind a hot and dry climate, but a hot and wet climate, no. I always feel so sticky and dirty during Canadian summers. I've always thought of that myself. Why be affectionate on Valentine's Day? Why be thankful only on Thanksgiving? Why delegate gift giving to Christmas? Shouldn't people be practicing these mannerisms year round? A person who is cruel doesn't deserve to be called a human being if you ask me, but this is the world we live in. People don't have compassion and mercy anymore. No one stops to think how the average person gets by without a job, they don't care. And most work doesn't even require credentials. I mean, do I need a P.h.D to work in a supermarket? I wouldn't be surprised if they made a qualification in the future. It's ridiculous how hard it is to find a job these days.

I like cats, but I don't have the luxury of owning any. The only joy I am able to derive is from video games, at least there I am successful and wealthy and my efforts actually matter in a video game. In real life, my efforts are worth little to nothing at all. I never thought being successful would be this difficult growing up. I knew there'd be some challenges, but I never thought it would feel like an impossible task. I feel like Herakles completing his 12 Labours.

I don't have any animals, no. I've been advised that prayer to God also works wonders, but I consider reliance on anyone but myself to be a sign of mental weakness. I usually just soldier on and hope things get better with time. Unfortunately, human nature has a way of twisting and morphing fate into something that is evil and miserable. The few good people you meet are overshadowed by tyrants and crooks. I sometimes feel like I've lived lifetimes of tragedy because that's how old I feel when I get into moods like this. Of course, animals have a simplicity that humans lack, they don't judge.

Thanks for your kind words, Sandy. Without people like you, I'd be deigned to believe the world is not worth saving.

@ Bobby - You sound as though you're feeling extremely down, and I am so sorry to hear this.

Some people say that they suffer from Seasonal Effective Disorder, but doesn't anybody pause to think that the hot weather can also be responsible for people's low moods? I for one MUCH prefer a snowy spell to hot, sweaty weather, which I cannot stand either, so I know exactly where you're coming from. Being as it's July now, I comfort myself by thinking that in just 3 months' time, we'll be heading towards Christmas, the one time in the year when it's 'the norm' to be nice and kind to one another, but why can't it be like this ALL YEAR ROUND? I, too, have witnessed people who find it second nature to be cruel to others, and they get away with it because of their social standing, or simply because their peers fear them. Yes, it's so unjust this World that we live in, and I'd like to think that these specimens who bring a constant barrage of misery will be punished either in this World or the next.

I so hope you find peace and contentment from one source or another. I have my cats, and I genuinely think that animals offer unconditional love. We lost one this week, a black-and-white girl cat named Iberow. When I got up on Wednesday, my brother told me "Iberow died." I went shivery all over. Cats are members of one's family, and are with us for precious little time. Iberow was 11 and-a-quarter, and was born a day after my Mum died. She leaves 2 sisters, Tangus and Ottica, not to mention 11 others. Wednesday the 10th of July will always be a sad day in this household.

Do you have any animals, Bobby? In my experience, they offer companionship and comfort when we are at our lowest. They sit with us and don't moan at our choice of DVD's, or make unreasonable demands from us. Perhaps you could think about getting an animal of your choice to help you when you're down. My cats have helped me when I have been positively frightened of people, after my attacks. They proved heaps better than a therapist who stares at the clock all the time. Yup, people can be cruel and thoughtless, but happily, there are nice, decent ones in the big, wide World - lots of them - and I sincerely hope that some of them befriend you very soon.

Have a good weekend, Bobby,

All the best to you,

It's been unbearably hot and humid here and I am at my wits end. I never had to worry about perspiration while in Greece, all I had to do was worry about staying hydrated.

As for being happy and contended, I've been in a state where all the mistreatment and injustice that pervades the world has left me heartbroken. Hones to God heartbroken. Someone who wrongs someone else doesn't deserve to be called a human being in my personal opinion. I'm in a better mood but I don't think the world is going to get any better.

@ Sandy Cowell - I bet Ulercy would get a ticking off if he sprayed in the house, I know you wouldn't be too hard on him though. When he sprays on other cats he must think that his spray is a weapon and a feared part of his armoury, he may feel that it's a statement of authority to cats who he is angry with, all cats will want to feel like they are Top Cat!
It's good for people to offer a helping hand to problematic animals and if they are unable to do this then it is a good idea to seek help from the right professionals, I am sure that animals respond well to expert help and they will be given so much encouragement, warmth, patience, and expert guidance, in order to overcome their problems.
I am not surprised that you recommend "My Cat From Hell" to everyone who loves animals, Jackson Galaxy is so successful at transforming the fortunes of cats and it is so vital that he offers so much warmth to all the cats he meets. He knows what he is doing, he is patient, and he has so much warmth in him, so what more can you or any cat ask for? He is also kind and will never give up on a cat - ever! This program is a must for every cat owner.
The fact that this program is funny and entertaining adds a lot to his show too, I agree that Jackson is even more of a man than ever when he cries.
Animal helplines, including Pet Bereavement Helplines, are so vital for every pet owner, it's ideal if a helpline is free and I would hope that there are enough helplines out there to cope with demand and I would also hope that any animal owner would always be able to quickly contact a helpline that can offer expert advice on any possible issue that they may have concerning their pet. It would be great if a list of all the available helplines out there was made available to us all. It's good these days that people are able to become aware of which vets are suitable, social media can play a big role in helping us decide which vets are really worthwhile.
Finally it must be said that plug-ins will be very useful if they help lift the mood of grumpy, aggressive cats and dogs. It is very unfortunate that they are not cheap though and I would hope that anyone who offers goods and services in important areas of life (pets obviously being one of them.) would offer those goods and services as cheaply as possible. What are these plug-ins please?

Cheers Sandy to you and your loved ones,

Nik and his Mum!

@ Nik - Oh, no, only Ulercy sprays, and he tends to do it in the garden or when he's angry with another cat and wants to show he's Top Cat! He's only depleted his bladder on me the one time, thank goodness, but if he did it more often, I would take it that he's insecure and seek help for him. You can get cat behaviour therapists, and no doubt you'll be aware of Jackson Galaxy, who successfully transforms problematic cats for his programme 'My Cat From Hell'. ๐Ÿ˜พ๐Ÿ˜

I recommend the programme to any animal lover, and it's a must for a cat owner like myself. It's funny, warm, and thoroughly entertaining. Oftentimes, he ends up in tears, and he is a huge man of well over 6ft. To me, that makes him even MORE of a man. He has never failed to help a cat - ever!

You can alternatively seek help free over the phone. There are plenty of animal helplines available, including Pet Bereavement Helplines, and every worthwhile vet will help a stressed out pet. Pet shops sell plug-ins to help lift the moods of grumpy, aggressive cats and dogs - but they aren't exactly cheap!

@ Sandy Cowell - Yes, it is clear that your cats are very possessive and they don't think anything of just spraying on you, in fact they think that it's their right! When Ulercy sprayed all over your new nightie you will have been hit by a constant barrage of hot and very excited **$$ particles, he was a naughty big blue boy! It will have also been a surprise when Pixie pressed his little ginger snout on your behind, he must also think that you are his property and isn't it nice when an animal presses his/her nose onto you (particularly if the animals nose is wet!) and then instantly moves away from you (or not!)? Animals bring us so much joy!

@ Sandy Cowell - It is very interesting (autocorrect tried to change it to net festering!) that Putsi always used to pop up whenever someone opened a bar of chocolate, dogs really do have good hearing and if they hear something they want, well! They do get familiar with things and the sound of the chocolate wrapper opening always signified to Putsi that chocolate was up for grabs!
I know that Jasmin always pops up whenever anyone opens up a fridge door and if you say anything in an enthusiastic way (particularly if it is aimed in Jasmin's direction!) when the humans are eating she thinks someone is going to treat her to some food!
Jasmin's tail wags a lot when there are some edible treats up for grabs, it wags around making a 360 degrees turn! I have sometimes fed her food at the table, particularly on a Sunday at dinner time, and there isn't much that she doesn't like! When we are eating she often spends her time popping up from under the table to pester us for food!
Manelia really does like the toy on a string that Jim bought her and it is clear that she still likes it even though the string has broken off, I wonder if playing with the string on it's own would appeal to her! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚! It will ๐Ÿ great when her new toy arrives!
Some of the questions that people get wrong on quizzes are incredible, it must be great to appear on a quiz show though however well you do with the questions! The experience of appearing on a quiz is something that money can't buy and it would also be great to know that you are contributing to the entertainment provided to the millions of people who are watching the quiz, after all every quiz show needs contestants or there would be no quiz show!
This week on the "Chase" it was great to know the answer to two questions, I correctly knew that the Surrey County Council headquarters are based in Kingston upon Thames and that Michelle Keegan is married to Mark Wright!
The "Chase" is such a great quiz because Bradders is cool, the "Chasers" are cool, and the whole format of this quiz is interesting! Also the questions asked on this quiz are interesting ones too!
The history you discussed in your last comment is very interesting and I had never thought about Richard the Third rhyming with โฌ†๏ธurd, it's also amazing to find out that a Richard the Lionheart is Cockney rhyming slang for fart!

Cheers Sandy and cheers to your loved ones too!

While still on the subject of cats, I just experienced a different sort of 'surprise from behind'. I was drying myself and felt something cold and wet on my bum. It was Pixie's nose! I didn't take it quite so badly as Ulercy's spraying me in the back at all! He'd climbed up silently onto the spin dryer and was just the right level to press his little ginger snout on my behind! I have had worse greetings...

@ Bobby - Yes, the ancient Egyptians worshipped cats. These animals evolved to perfection long before we did, apparently. They are perfect little machines and born survivors! I love all animals, and the programme I am watching right now, 'A Touch of Frost', and starring David Jason, shows just how faithful an animal can be. In this particular episode, a German Shepherd dog homes in on the Inspector and won't leave him alone. Animals give their love unconditionally, and this little fellow ends up nearly getting killed in the process of defending Frost, saving his life. Fortunately he doesn't die, and is nursed back to full health by the grateful Inspector. David Jason was famous for his comedy, and then he decided to take on a really serious part. His comedic side always shows through though and it is often a welcome relief when the subject matter is serious, to the point of reducing one to tears.

Actually, I've had a bit of a crappy three days of late. As you may know, I am in constant pain, but writing on Celebheights, and watching excellent TV programmes, not to mention listening to music, takes my mind away from it. I guess I'm quite lucky because I have a positive outlook on life. Those who say, "Life's a bitch and then you die" are very pessimistic. Life is what you make it, after all! Well, I didn't have sufficient pain relief over the weekend and yesterday, but I still did my best to enjoy myself. I drank a few glasses of wine to take my mind from the pain, and it does actually help. Before anesthetics were invented, people would frequently be dosed up with spirits before an operation. Did you see the Clint Eastwood film, where the jealous nuns removed his leg? How awful was that? The poor guy didn't even need it....

As regards the film 'Inglourious Basterds', being as it is a Quentin Tarantino film, it's bound to be funny! That guy sees humour in everything, and even turned a jewel robbery into a comedy with his 'Reservoir Dogs'. There was SUCH a to-do when they first showed it on TV. Now they show Quentin's films all the time, and I only recently saw 'Pulp Fiction' on TV, which has more than its fair share of humour. The 'Gold Watch' story has me in tears of laughter every time, as related by the one and only Christopher Walken.

I am going to make myself a nice cup of tea now, bracing myself for the cleaning up of the cats' litter trays. The things we do for love!

Wishing you an enjoyable week Bobby!

All the Very Best,

@ Nik - Yes, indeed they do regard you as their property! When Ule-Ule sprayed me, I was wearing a nightie that I had just bought from a charity shop - and it didn't smell of me! I'd like to think that I don't smell, but Ulercy could tell the difference. I didn't smell of my usual delightful self, you see, and the naughty big blue boy sprayed all over my back! It was incredibly hot, and it felt as though I had been stabbed!

@ Sandy Cowell - I suppose a big cat probably will have a big bladder, when Ulercy sprays on you it must be like being sprayed by a hose pipe that is connected to a tap which hasn't been turned off in a while!

Animals simply do whatever they want and they don't think about whether something is naughty or not, it's interesting that they think of us as being their property!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jun/19

@ Bobby - Hi Bobby! Don't ever feel that you should hurry with a response to me! I know the feeling only too well of not being 'in the writing mood', and if I try to push myself then, I risk coming out with a load of piffle!

Yes, cats do have marvellous reflexes, and many a time, it can save their lives. However, kittens and very young cats tend to chase around at top speed, and it was during one such session that Manelia had her accident. They get injured in fights as well and oftentimes, can chase dangerous insects and then get stung by them, or pick on large birds, who peck them in self-defence. They say cats have nine lives though.

Apart from 'Eden Lake', in which Michael Fassbender plays a major, if unfortunate part, I would like to recommend the Quentin Tarantino film 'Inglourious Basterds'. He plays a German in it, and I actually thought he was German, but no, he is British. The film is very entertaining, but it's both sad and amusing. It stars Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Diane Kruger, Christoph Waltz and French actress Melanie Laurent. Don't let its length put you off, because it's done in chapters, so you can always pause it. I have watched it three consecutive times in a day before, it is so addictive. It is Tarantino's take on how the War might have turned out. All Quentin's films have an enormous amount of humour in them; if they didn't, they wouldn't be so blackly entertaining. I reckon this great writer and his friend Eli Roth are fans of 'American Horror Story', I really do. I know Mr Tarantino watches a great many films himself, not for ideas, because he has those a-plenty, but because he enjoys them.

I had to go to hospital this week for a review, but it all ran smoothly and I had a very nice Doctor.

Now I would like to tell you about some of the exams I used to take from the ages of 14-18. They were called 'London Chamber of Commerce', or LCC exams for short and RSA exams, which stood for 'Royal Society of Arts'. They covered English at different stages, French, Maths, Arithmetic, Handwriting, Business Studies and Shorthand, all at different grades. I found the English ones a particular doddle because my Mum drummed grammar into me from a very early age. For example, you were given an essay without punctuation, and had to fill it in yourself. Then there would be sentences with options of which word is right and which are wrong and fill them in. You would have passed, no trouble, but the grammar I see used even on adverts nowadays is terrible! It makes me squirm, so don't think you are the only one who gets uptight about things! I do too, and then some....

I wish you a great weekend Bobby! Have fun!

@Sandy Cowell

I gave it some time so I could formulate a response, although I am loath to admit I was not in the right mood for a long discussion at the time, and so I am responding today. Don't most animals have the instincts to avoid hurting themselves? I'm surprised a creature as skittish as a cat would allow itself to sustain injury especially being that cats are popularized by their well-known quick reflexes "cat-like reflexes". At least your cat didn't sustain a life-sustaining injury and was able to see a vet before infection could spread.

Yes, Michael Fassbender makes an excellent addition as the tragic villain Magneto aka Erik Lensherr. Throughout my childhood I have preferred the much more optimistic Professor Xavier but have realized that Magneto is a far more sensible character with his cynical outlook towards governments and authority figures. I think the testament to true character is being able to have a balance of two different outlooks befitting the occasion. I haven't seen Fassbender in anything else but Assassin's Creed and the Alien films, Prometheus and Alien Covenant, the latter of which he portrays a Weyland-Yutani Synthetic named David in Prometheus and reprises his role for the sequel while in addition portraying a similar model synthetic named Walter. Alien Covenant has a clever prologue where David has a meeting with his creator, Peter Weyland, about the origins of mankind. David makes some interesting parallels between humanity and synthetics citing that David would outlast Peter because he does not age but yet is the inferior one because he was created. Additionally, David enquires as to Peter's creator knowing that Peter created him but asked who created him. Ridley Scott has never voiced any religious beliefs before but tends to insert them like clockwork in his Alien movies, so it makes for some fascinating intellectual digestion.

Well, Star Wars is meant to be a Space Opera, but a fancy one. I suppose it's not for everyone and I'm not too obsessed with it either but the politics in it make for an intriguing enterprise of enjoyment.

Hmm, with lessons like that, I am sure you picked up secretarial work or office work afterwards. It befuddles how much more advanced the educational system has become and yet the job market has become saturated with ridiculous qualifications and standards. Sometimes I see young people working in supermarkets and have to ask myself how they managed it when I, equally as ambitious and opportunistic as all young people, cannot seem to pass a basic interview. I suppose my introverted nature saw fit to that long ago.

I watched maybe 2/3rds of Lord of the Rings. The movie drags on and on and on. It's not a bad movie, but it is very long. I can't imagine sitting for 3 hours watching a single film.

That's a shame. I like the smell of Nescafe, very strong.

I've been dealing with headaches on and off this week myself, they come and go, but tend to signal their appearance when I am emotionally stressed out.

Cheers Sandy and enjoy your weekend :)

@ Bobby - Hi! I'm sorry for the delay in replying. I have had a crappy three days of worry. On Saturday, Manelia was running around like a lunatic as kittens and young cats do, and she rammed her face into the fire guard. I tried desperately hard to get her some help, but all the vets were closed. I even tried the Blue Cross Helpline, but that was closed as well being the weekend. The wound didn't bleed but there was a chip missing from her little neck. The following day, it looked red-raw and because it itched, Manelia would scratch it and yelp in pain. I sat her on my lap and made sure she didn't fiddle with it. She has been to the vets now, of course, and it is healing nicely. I'd far, far sooner have suffered an injury myself than see an innocent little animal go through that.

It's great to hear that Michael Fassbinder and James McAvoy star alongside Evan Peters. I am a fan of all of them. My introduction to Evan Peters couldn't have been better. He will be in Season Eight but after that, he's going to bow out gracefully, which is such a shame. His parts in AHS range from the downright disturbing to the vulnerable, and he excels at everything. Have you seen the Michael Fassbender film 'Eden Lake'? It was shown as part of the 'extreme season' on the Horror Channel. It really is gruesome.

Yes, I was aware that some people are so crazy about 'Star Wars' that they have created a daft sect for the fans! To be perfectly honest, I had trouble keeping awake when my Mum took me to see it at the cinema - and I was only 16!

So you've seen 'Carrie' and the 'Shawshank Redemption' out of Stephen King's offerings. That's an excellent start. Did you know that Stephen King based 'Carrie' on the personalities of two girls he knew at school? I know that at least one of them didn't live for very long. Might I suggest that you try 'Misery', 'The Stand', both versions of 'The Shining' and 'Dolores Clayborne'? I must own pushing 20 of Stephen King's films, and they are all brilliant.

Oh yes, in this country, you go to college before university. I only ever went to college, but the lecturers didn't believe in me and so I dropped out just after I turned 17. Then I went back to my original school to learn shorthand, typing and business studies, and was first in class! ๐Ÿ˜ If people don't believe in you, it's a major drag...

I have a copy of the Peter Jackson's version of 'King Kong'. I think Naomi Watts excelled herself, and brought a touch of humour to the part. Typically Peter Jackson all over! Needless to say, I have his 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy - twice over. The second purchase was the extended version. That guy has such a great sense of humour, and how about RABBIT drawn carriages? I must say, I was in hysterics!

Yes, my brother drinks Nescafe but I do not. I find the stuff putrid!

I'm going to draw this comment to a close because I have a frightful headache! I will continue soon....

Cheers Bobby and all the very best to you!

@Sandy Cowell

Oh, I thought you would have been. You do seem to enjoy Doctor Who, so I figure a space opera such as Star Wars would have been your cup of tea also. I wouldn't say I'm a big fan of Star Wars either, but I have seen the movies. Still, I'm not a raving lunatic about the movies and don't my pants all twisted up when a new movie comes out. Did you know there is a real-life movement called Jedism which follows the main religion of the Jedi in Star Wars? Yes, there are actual people who practice a fictional religion. Boggles the mind.

Well, here in Canada, we call it university, not college. College is something different here. Back in the 1960s, they were known as technical schools or trade schools. Nowadays, the line between college and university is blurring, but university has always been less practical and far more abstract. It's about building your knowledge and enhancing your individuality whereas college is about acquiring life skills which you can use to find a job. Every passing day has been more or less of the same routine, but I've never been a very spontaneous person and enjoy stability over chaos and if said stability means playing video games, then video games it shall be. I'd find myself a job too but nothing I do can land me into one. I'm much too stoic to impress people with my social skills or lack thereof and I'm certainly not there to be making friends, so I'm still jobless. That premise reminds me of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang where Vincent Van Dyke transforms a rusty old car into a brand new turn of the century vehicle befitting the early 1900s. But Stephen King has always been a strange one, and I haven't seen that film, no. I've only seen Carrie and Shawshank Redemption, the latter of which is an excellent caricature on the ills of society, which I love. I've always been drawn to dystopia related films.

Well, Evan Peters portrays a magnificent Quicksilver and his character steals the show every time he appears. Usually actors get known for certain roles, and Evans is quickly becoming known for Quicksilver and Fassbender for Magneto, and McAvoy for Xavier. Yes, I suppose the gruelling sight of decomposing corpses can push anyone over the edge but I've always prided myself on a nonplussed mentality and am rarely fazed by anything these days. I suppose all my time spent watching horror movies as a teenager have prepared me for anything because I have quite honestly seen it all.

So, does this show premier on Netflix? It seems like every season is shot to completion before being released and that could take up to a year, and Netflix is known for its annual releases as far as TV shows are concerned. Peter Jackson's King Kong is difficult to watch mainly because of all the giant bugs and those weird carnivorous worms which drag Lump the Cook aka Andy Serkis down into their festering bowel. He had it the worst. All because he was trying to protect his dead friend's body. If it had been me, I wouldn't have cared. It's my life right now, not anyone else's. I'd like to say that a person's natural self-preservation would kick in in dire circumstances such as that.

That's the making of a well thought out cast, but if you notice its diversity every single time, it means the actors are poorly cast for the show. The new Power Rangers (2017) had a decent cast of diverse characters but they're so well scripted, you don't even realize it.

I think it all boils down to individuality before anything group related but if a healthy proportion of people act out to feed the stereotypes, the hate will never die. In your life, however, you will deal with certain people identifying themselves as certain ethnicities and nationalities and their behaviour and mannerisms will influence how you view other people from those same ilks. So, if everyone you deal with from that group is greedy, you will form the conclusion that those people are just greedy. It's why the Jewish have that stereotype, but a large proportion of them actually are, greedy. Of course, greed is fundamental to the human condition, but some groups of people display it more prominently than others. The factor involved though is culture, if your culture feeds you wayward ideals, then you will develop into a bad person. That's why people raised in the Middle East have no respect for women because their culture feeds them that idea, that women are their property.

The only thing I can write about is ideas, but nothing made up. I can't write something to surpass Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings. I'm not a creative person at all. I can only parrot what others have already said and maybe innovate on things a little, but I can't make things up. I just lack that outside of the box thinking.

Well, my opinions aren't politically correct, so I may be ostracized as a journalist, but some may crown me with the virtue of truth speaking, so who knows? I find that those who express themselves faithfully and without deceit tend to be the most ostracized out of those who merely copy and paste worldly thinking.

The instant variety can be good, at least Nescafe is. We have that here, but I'm sure you've got it down in the U.K as well. If Greece can have that, then I'm sure a powerhouse like the U.K will as well.

Have a great weekend Sandy (It took me well over an hour to write all this out.)

Hi Bobby!

Believe it or not, I have never been well acquainted with 'Star Wars'. I saw the first one at the pictures when I was 16. My Mum took my brother and me to the cinema because the women in her office were raving about it. Since then, I have tried to get into 'The Phantom Menace', only because I like the cast, but it isn't tense enough for my tastes! Maybe one day....

So you are out of college now until September, are you? That's one mighty long break! I'd heard that American colleges and high schools have long breaks but I expected it might be two months. Three months, 25% of the year (as if you needed telling! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚), will require for you to find something worthwhile to do with your time. No wonder so many college youngsters find themselves working during their Summer months, enabling them to save up for fairly huge items, a fact I picked up on from movies no less! Although only 17, Keith Gordon's character of Arnold Cunningham in 'Christine', refers to the fact that 'he's been saving up all Summer'. Then he blows the money on that heap of junk and transforms the rust bucket at great expense and determination; then 'she', the car, transforms him! No thanks to that! Have you seen this particular Stephen King film, Bobby? I'm sure you'd find it to be the sort of film you'd love.

I didn't know that Evan Peters is in 'X-Men'. This is the first time I have properly taken him in as an actor. He is one of a very few, two or three I think, who is included in each and every Season. Sarah Paulson is another. The seventh Season includes a lot of pill-popping, but drug misuse isn't uncommon in any of them, and drinking and smoking comes as standard! I had to turn back and pause the episode which shows Kai Anderson's bottle of pills in order to see what he's taking. Kai is Evan Peters' character name, and he has been through so much in his short life that the taking of pure amphetamines isn't going to bring out the best in him. He goes to see his parents - and they are decomposing skeletons lying side-by-side on a bed! I think that would be enough to push the strongest amongst us over the edge, don't you? ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€

The eighth Season is out on the 26th of August, as I mentioned before, and called 'Apocalypse' and I've heard it is an amalgamation of Seasons One and Three. That means there will be a huge cast, and many will be playing two parts - I should think! I know that Jessica Lange is back, and I am very pleased to have read that she will be returning in any future Seasons. While I've been watching all the Seasons of AHS, actors and actresses have come and gone from Season to Season, but she is the one I miss the most when she's not there. I have even bought a copy of 'Tootsie' because she is in it and I might buy the 70s remake of 'King Kong', starring Jessica in her first role I think. It isn't my usual cup of tea, but it's always a good watch. So is the Peter Jackson one, which has taken over from being the most shown 'King Kong' on British television.

The entire cast is so good that it has never occurred to me how hugely diverse it is. Political correctness is the last thing to have even entered my head. Now THAT'S fluidity!

I have heard some sickening stories about how perfectly peace-loving Muslim people have been discriminated against since that major 9/11 atrocity. For instance, some have been refused accommodation and claim it's because they are of the Muslim faith. Of course, this is an outrage, but I have also heard about many, many cases of different people from all different races and religions who have kicked up unnecessary scenes, blaming people of being prejudiced in order to get what they want.

As far as your future as some kind of writer goes, you might not have a novel in you yet, but give it time. People can write about all sorts of things, and loads become well-known from starting out in journalism. Now I DO think you have the creativity for that - and more. You'd be able to give your opinion on all sorts of topics, and as long as your articles are enjoyable to read, you'd sooner or later be able to command your own price, and ๐Ÿ˜ to all the people who look down on you!

I'm shortly getting back to my AHS, but firstly I'll have some tea. The only coffee that exists in this establishment is the bland, instant variety. My Mum had a more discerning palate than my brother, I must say, and often the house would be filled with the welcoming aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Now I never complained about that!

Have a great weekend Bobby,

All the Very Best,

@Sandy Cowell

I think that's just in my character, I don't like to keep people waiting even for valid reasons of my own. I won't go so far as to say I am a people pleaser but I have always been the sort who couldn't stomach conflict. As it stands currently, I am off for the summer and won't be returning to school until September.

I know a fair bit about racism and what I can say about that is a healthy proportion of people tend to behave in such a way that stereotypes against their groups are kept alive. So, a great example of this is, "All Muslims are terrorists", but can all terrorists necessarily be Muslims? I am certain there are other examples too, but I don't let stereotypes determine whether or not I like someone, I let their character be the judge of that and more often than not, I find myself supremely disappointed with people, regardless of where they come from.

I think the casting of actors should happen fluidly and because the script will benefit from their talent and their experience not because there's a hidden political agenda to be diverse. So, if you're shooting a historical fiction movie set in a certain part of the world and in a certain time frame, then you need to keep in mind how the majority of characters should look. But for American Horror Story, I think if the castings are well chosen, then diversity comes at a benefit. Of course, I am sure you've seen what has happened to Star Wars, the coercion of diversity has ruined the property for years to come and it has become a political cesspool. One should never force anything upon anyone, all changes should be slow and gradual.

Ah, I know Evan Peters for his role as Quicksilver over on X-Men but it's interesting to see that he appears on other properties that are well-known. I suppose that season seven had to do with excessive drug use.

I lack the creativity necessary to see myself become a novelist but you are not the first person to suggest I make a career in words. Hopefully when all is said and done, I'll see myself become an editor or a Journalist of a kind.

Coffee indeed has a nice strong rich smell about it, but I find after sampling Greek coffee, everything else is too diluted for my taste buds. So, I favour dark roast above all else. I have tried drinking tea of course, but outside of having a nice smell about it, it really doesn't taste like anything at all, at least to me, unless you put honey in it.

Enjoy your rewatch of season one of American Horror Story! Unfortunately, I am seldom in the mood for deeper thought in the mornings so I didn't probe too deeply today.

I will endeavour to remain as strong as the Force,

It was nice chatting with you Sandy :)

@ Nik - Oh, indeed I did Nik! Apart from the Saxon, I went to the Wellington, Waterloo, The Green Gate, Bethnal Green and a number of others. It was amazing to see the same crowd turning up at each nightclub, and they would often show at the same concerts that I went to as well. The main DJ was a guy called Del Stevens, and he had working with him guys who had been roadies for various bands, including Led Zeppelin. It was a very exciting time in my life!

@ Bobby - You are never under any
pressure to hurry along a reply to me. I am easy going and understand that you have a full schedule with your college work - but thank you anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Racism and any kind of mocking behaviour isn't exclusive by Whites to Black and Asian people. It can be applied to the White people among us too, to the people on welfare, those who were born with so-called 'deformities' and so the list goes on. I don't think it's an understatement to say that I hate that sort of thing. As you know, I am watching 'American Horror Story', and the cast consists of people of all races, sizes and appearances. The glamorous parts don't go automatically to the White, but equally to the Black and those of unusual appearance, but it WORKS! I have 'fallen' for so many of them, and their race, size, age and facial characteristics have absolutely nothing to do with it. I go by their acting ability and how much they make me laugh. If only the real World was more like the example set by this mixture of actors. If only...

I have finished Season Seven, which is called 'Cult'. This morning I read that it was the first Season which doesn't include supernatural happenings. I must say, it did make me laugh! If what they portray in 'Cult' is in any way 'natural' behaviour, then Heaven help us all! You get to see how Evan Peters' role of Kai Anderson becomes so warped. His mother shoots his bad-tempered father and then turns the gun on herself, and his older brother, played by Cheyenne Jackson, makes the decision to leave them on the bed, so as not to ruin his or his brothers flourishing careers. I think he uses quicklime to reduce the stench.

Kai is an amphetamine-chomping genius. He takes Adderall, a drug usually prescribed to those with ADHD and people who can't stop sleeping, but it is subject to tremendous misuse. Kai forges prescriptions easily because his big brother is a psychiatrist.

Yes, I finished it today, getting up at before six and putting it on after the repeat of 'Classic Coronation Street', which I watch to reminisce. I can get a bit sentimental about it sometimes, thinking, "Where has all the time gone? Which cats of mine were alive?"

I don't think it's possible to reach a certain age without looking back. You are still gloriously in your youth, so make the most of it. Have you ever thought of becoming a writer? I feel confident that you could make the grade, and then watch all these people with their noses in the air as you make a name for yourself!

I bet they hang around in groups or 'gangs', and compete against each other. That should tell you you're a cut above them because you do your thinking for yourself, and very commendable it is too.

Funnily enough, you mentioned your childhood. I remember back to when I was three, and perched on the doorstep wondering how on Earth, and why, I suddenly came into being. I would scrutinize every thought that went through my head, and think nothing of it. I expected that everyone my age did the same. Instead of blaming myself for my parents splitting up, I would look forward to my Dad's visits. Furthermore, I had a second Mum, one who was young enough not to have suffered by living through the War, like my real Mum. To her, looking after children came second nature. I look back now in disbelief and respect as to how wonderful she was with my brother and myself. She went on to have three sons of her own, my half-brothers, and they have all made successes of themselves. The eldest two live in Atlanta, Georgia, and the youngest has just become a Dad with his lovely wife, to a little boy. I am very happy for them all - and proud of their success. I'm lucky not to have a jealous streak at all. That is a horribly negative emotion. I have met so many in my life who are begrudging of anyone's success. I don't know how I'd cope with being a youngster of today. I can confidently say that I wouldn't like it.

I have enjoyed 'American Horror Story' so much that I have started with Season One again. I am finding actors I haven't even commented on, or taken in the heights of properly. They say that some things are better the second time around. I can see this being one such production. I am taking in things I barely noticed before. Season Eight comes out on August the 26th and I am really looking forward to it. I believe it's a combination of Seasons One and Three, so it should be terrific. The third Season is about a coven of witches. That means that certain stars will be playing two parts, but that has already been done in other Seasons, and it's worked very well.

Yes, we do have coffee in this country, but the only thing I like about it is the smell - and it has to be freshly grounded! I used to buy it for my boyfriend's Mum, and bring it back into the office. The entire place reeked of it, but nobody minded because it's such a wholesome aroma. I have consumed precisely two cups of coffee in my life in an attempt to wake myself up for an appointment, and I couldn't stand the taste. I don't like anything flavoured with coffee either, such as chocolates. If I bite into one by mistake, I automatically spit it out, an act for which I would get smacked as a child for 'wasting good food'. I look back and think it's quite funny now, though I didn't at the time, I must say!

Okay then, so it's a cup of tea for me now and back to Season One of AHS. Jessica Lange is a real treat, and she won awards.

@ Sandy Cowell - You must have loved going down to the Saxon Tavern, the fact that this pub is a Rock Music pub will have been very appealing to you! This pub will have been the place to be for all Rock Music fans with live acts taking place on a regular basis, it will have been the ultimate privilege to meet famous Rock stars and hear them perform regularly! Touching each of the three members of Budgie will have been amazing too, if I am not mistaken they are a Welsh group from Cardiff!

When I was a child I was lucky enough to touch the wrestler Shirley Crabtree, better known as Big Daddy. I know that many football fans would love to touch David Silva and get his autograph too! He is a great ambassador for the shorter guy, he fly's the flag for short guys and he shows everyone how cool it is to be short. His football team Manchester City is one of the shortest (or the shortest.) teams in the premiership and they are currently the most successful side, ironically he is an established international for Spain and they are one of the shortest (or shortest.) international sides and they are the most successful international team from the last decade or two too!

Nobody at the Saxon Tavern will have thought that you were any taller than what you were but I am sure that they liked your hairstyle very much, you were very much like a celebrity in that everyone knew your height, at least thanks to Rob Paul we are starting to find out how tall more and more celebrities are! The great thing is that celebheights has introduced us to thousands of male and female celebrities of every level of height imaginable! I hope this helps the celebs and all the site visitors/ users realise how diverse male and female height is and that this should be a good thing, it is a good thing in the view of many people. I hope the fact that all the male and female visitors/ users of celebheights are diverse in height helps all celebheights visitors who have issues with their own height, I know we will help very much as both of us and other visitors too celebrate male and female height diversity on this website.

Cheers Sandy!

Continued:

So, there is indeed a word limit on these comment boxes and I had reached it. I was not yet finished with my thoughts so I will continue from here for the sake of continuity.

I myself have difficulty making friends but perhaps it is my introverted nature and my tendency to probe deeper than a surface level discussion. I have discovered that people are not comfortable discussing ideas and the like. I have always been the contemplative sort, however, as early as a kid, I was just the thinking person. Most kids preferred playing outdoors but I was inside watching cartoons and playing video games and having serious childish thoughts about them. I am quite ambitious, or at least, I have goals I hope to reach someday. I want to have a good well paying job so I can live a life of modest comfort but nothing to crazy beyond that. I'm not hugely ambitious but I am ambitious enough to endeavour for a life beyond welfare and working at Starbucks like some people do.

Sometimes I do when I think of people in their 20s who already have jobs and their own apartments. Then there's me, with none of that yet. For all my head knowledge, I am not as successful as I want to be.

Well, I personally subscribe to Victor Hugo's word on this account. A man without faith is a man with nothing to live for. I don't mean faith in himself or his talents, but faith in a higher purpose. I've always had fault with my ability to choose as I don't always make the best decisions but I've come this far in my life, so I suppose I've been making some sound choices.

That's probably the curse of it all, but having intelligence is certainly virtuous and I wouldn't have it any other way.

So, you're a tea drinker? Do they have coffee in the U.K? I'm a coffee person. I can't see myself drinking tea very often although I have. So, American Horror Story sounds nice then and I may have to check it out.

Hi Bobby,

I felt quite tearful reading about the pain you are going through. I have been there but for different reasons, doubting myself over my height and appearance rather than anything else. I was pushed extremely hard at school, not by my Dad so much as by my Mum, and by my own personal need to prove to them that I was worthy of a private education.

My doubts in myself physically stem from being an extremely late developer and standing out for my childlike appearance well into my late teens and beyond. If the truth be told, subconsciously I knew that by starving myself from a very early age, I was putting off the inevitable. I saw the struggle my Mum had rearing two kids on her own. She talked to us about her financial problems when I was 7 or 8 onwards and my brother 9 or 10. I therefore thought being an adult sucked and I didn't want to be one. I had to do all the cleaning from 9/10+ so that my Mum could go to work, but it didn't bother me because it made my Mum happy.

One thing I feel quite grateful for is that after all my exams had been sat, and I finally left school, I felt so drained that I didn't feel like doing much other than get into music and meet like-minded people. My ambition was to have cats ๐Ÿˆ, especially a white one, and as you know, that aim came to fruition!

I can't imagine what it must be like being part of today's pressurised young society. It must be horrible; I see how materialistic๐Ÿ’ฐyoungsters are today, and I don't know how you can stand it. The worst I had to contend with as a youngster going out to work was a one-woman bitch war. She slagged off everyone in the entire office except for one girl, who was a year older than me, and dressed like a 55-year-old and had a Margaret Thatcher perm. Not once did I envy her 5ft8 height. She was just so square! The bitchy boss had weighed about 22 stone when I started, so she clearly had psychological problems of her own. Hell, she would even slag off her own offspring, and when I got to meet one of her sons, who was my age and in the Army, we got on really well, much to the annoyance of his mother! ๐Ÿ–•

When I left that job, I felt a weight had been lifted. Had I been the age I am today, or even 10 years older than my 19 years, I'd have stood up to her. I have never been able to trust someone who runs people down since. I'm an Aquarian and as such, I look for the good in people.

I don't have difficulty making friends and that in itself is something to be grateful for. Another thing - unlike my parents, I have never been overly ambitious. As long as I have just enough food, warmth and a roof over my head, I am quite happy. I do understand the feeling of self-loathing, and at the age of 15, I wrote off to the British Institute of Psychology for some self-help literature, and yes, it did help me along.

I advise you not to compare and contrast yourself to other people, especially not ANYONE who has the audacity to make you feel in any way inferior. People like that aren't your friends, and they aren't even at peace with themselves by the sound of it, or they wouldn't even think of rooting for someone to take their own insecurities out on. People of your age are naturally going to still have a great deal of growing up left to do. Everyone matures at a different rate anyway, and those who think they are the best person they'll ever be at 24 has a lot to learn for thinking that alone!

I know you are enjoying your course at University and so you should be; it sounds extremely interesting. Nowadays I learn things I'm fascinated by because I don't feel I HAVE to, and unlike when at school/college, I can do it at my own pace. It is a lovely feeling. If it's any consolation, being so self- analytical goes hand in hand with having a high IQ, and being smug and self-satisfied are traits of an average, materialistic way of thinking.

I'm glad you have fought away from being an Atheist. It is great to have faith. There again, I don't know any other way because I was brought up that way, but you got there on your own. Surely that must tell you something about your strength as a person? Trust your own instincts and decisions. They come over as very sound ones to me.

I will write about 'American Horror Story' tomorrow or the next day. Right now, I need a cup of tea and then I'll continue with Season Seven, which I have just started. If you went through a 'slasher film' phase in your teens, think of the best plot imaginable, a sprinkling of originality, more than a little gross-you-out horror and fantastic acting and you are half way there. Each Season covers a new topic, and stars a selection of the bundle of actors on the AHS page. I gave Season One a whirl and I haven't looked back!

I wish you a fabulous week Bobby,

All the Best,

Sandy xxx ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

That should have been Alexandra Daddario spelt DA and not DE. She is in three episodes of AHS 'Hotel', dressed as a 20's lady, which really suits her.

@Sandy Cowell

I try to remind myself that I am far too young to have this level of cynicism about the world and about life, but because my life has never been particularly prosperous, all attempts to reverse the process having been met with nothing, I have grown to, over time, to become cynical. It's not my appearance I have insecurities over, but I am insecure about my skills. It seems everyone else my own age is more successful than I am and I have to ask myself why, they aren't any smarter than I am, so what's holding me back? I suppose it is self-doubt and perhaps worse off than that, self-loathing. Earlier in the past two years, I thought I get a taste of religion, and while I am no longer an Atheist, I feel as though God is just letting us all hate and squander each other over our wealth. I'm just tired of all the corruption and the injustice. This isn't the world I thought I would grow up in when I was younger. I thought I would grow to be a part of a fair and just world, one that blessed effort with opportunity and reward for action. That is not the world I envisioned and I am left deeply disappointed. I would write more but I do not wish to burden you with my overthinking and my cynical thought. I do agree with you Sandy, but the problem is, I live in a nation that is not a community but a series of networks all relaying to the strongest signal. I am sure I have addressed this before, but societies were better back then simply because people had a sense of community, but people no longer have these ideas. Instead we are focusing on things that are meaningless over matters that require serious attention.

I am heartened to hear that you are enjoying American Horror Story, I may check out an episode or two for myself, but does the show have overarching plot, an endgame? Or is it merely an anthology of different stories? Yes, I did see The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and found it to not be my cup of tea. When I was going through my horror slasher routine in my early teens, I had watched everything from Halloween and Friday the 13th to the underrated Child's Play series, but The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was a trifle boring, in my opinion. I also found it ridiculous that she wound up joining the family business despite having zero indoctrination of it.

So, it seems the whole show is an anthology of different subject matter or themes. Do all the characters who appear know each other in any way? Is there a connection to them? I haven't found myself viewing any serious TV shows in a long time mostly because I haven't been able to find anything that interests me or can hold my attention for very long. I tried watching Planet of the Apes, there is a TV show based on the original series, but I couldn't find any working streams beyond the first episode. And yes, what's the connection between vampirism and erotica anyway? I find it rather odd.

I will try to take your words to heart but I fear the advantages of an enquiring mind are also spelled in their disadvantages of overthinking and over-analytical behaviour. Nevertheless, I still agree that life is precious but sometimes I need a fresh reminder telling me so.

All the best, Sandy.

@ Bobby - Hi Bobby! The feelings of doubt you are experiencing go hand in hand with being young. It is absolutely normal to have insecurities about one's appearance and whether one's friends are genuine to us, and the older you get, the more confident you'll feel as regards to everything. You seem to be an overanalytical person and too hard on yourself. I was the same at your age, but it eased off in my thirties, and by the time I was in my forties, I realised that there is far more to life than worrying about what people think of you. I'm stopping there! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh, the pains of youth! Most people I know reckon they would sooner be a couple of decades older than be suffering from the hell of the self-doubt of being young. Then you get those who say that youth and looks are wasted on the young. Well, I'm not one of them. You need something going for you when you're in your prime because they are the times when you need all the confidence boosters that are available.

I am truly gripped on 'American Horror Story', and am on Season Five now, called 'Hotel'. I have reached the episode which stars Alexandra Deddario, so I thought I would pause it and write to you before she appears. She is instantly recognisable, with her raven hair and sapphire blue eyes - quite beautiful! I thought that her part in 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' was a trifle ridiculous; she couldn't be related to murderers like that, and she wasn't even brought up with them. Huh! I thought the ending was completely unreal. Still, I'm glad to see her starring in a programme worthy of her, and AHS really is mind-blowing.

Each Season covers a different subject matter. The first one is called 'Murder House', the second is 'Asylum', the third is 'Coven', the fourth 'Freak Show' and the fifth one is named 'Hotel', which is the one I am on at the moment. Today, Season Seven dropped through my letter box, entitled 'Cult', which has mixed reviews, but I shall make my own mind up about it. Season Six will probably arrive tomorrow, so that should keep my viewing needs catered for for yet a while. They are so good that I can see myself watching them again and again. The first four seasons star Jessica Lange, who was beautiful as a youngster, and has blossomed into a most attractive older woman. She exudes confidence, which is always so alluring. Having said that, so does Lady Gaga, who stars in Season Five. I expected her acting to be top class, and she is at least as good as I had hoped. Yes, this particular season is far and away the most erotic so far. It covers the subject of vampirism, which I can find a bit silly and repetitive, but this show has breathed new life into the topic, if you pardon the pun!

Something I really enjoy about being older is that your inhibitions lessen and you feel you can say and voice your opinions about how you feel and think. If I see an attractive woman, I bloody well say so, and the same obviously follows suit with males. I find all heights, colourings and personalities have something good about them. When in my twenties, I would never have been so bold, for fear of criticism. The same is so with the thoughts of others as regards myself. Life is far too short to wonder about what people think and say about one. Embrace your youth, Bobby, and your enquiring mind and live and learn. Life is so precious.

All the very best to you,

@ Lee - I was hoping you might get back to me on this one! Thanks! Tonight my brother came out with, "I never thought I'd see the day when you wouldn't watch the Soaps!"

Well, I will see them, but at the weekend or in the morning. Right now, I can watch little else but 'American Horror Story', as I can't think of anything better, but I might watch the Keifer Sutherland movie 'Mirrors' on the Horror Channel tonight as I really rate that film. I have just seen the very moving scene between Dot and Bet where they put aside their differences and Bet tells Dot she would die for her. Isn't Sarah Paulson fantastic? So is Lily Rabe and the hilarious Angela Bassett. In fact, I like all the women in this, but some of the men are simply too evil to like, but I still appreciate them as actors and will look out for them in the future.

My Fifth Season arrived yesterday, 'Hotel', and I'm a bit disappointed that Jessica Lange isn't in it! However, we still have Sarah, Angela, the terrific Kathy Bates, Denis O'Hare and for the first time, I will be able to see Lady Gaga act. I hope Evan Peters is in it, as I have grown very fond of him too. Tomorrow, I should receive Seasons Six and Seven. You weren't wrong at all in saying I'd like it. I'm crazy about it! The acting and plotlines are out of this World; just to think, I thought I'd give the first one a whirl....๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Thanks for recommending it to me!

@ Sandy Cowell - ๐Ÿข๐Ÿธ๐ŸŽพ!

Wouldn't it just be an original take on "Spot the Ball"? The ball will be a pretty big 'un but the problem comes if the green ball is taken in a picture with green surroundings, ie the grass on a golf course! Also it may be difficult if there is more than one ball to spot!

@Sandy Cowell

Most of my week has been a series of existential related events that have put strain on my mind. I was questioning who my friends were and whether I was even a good one myself. It's true there is always someone worse off than you but that does not diminish your own struggles or insecurities at all.

Yes, I am beginning to realize who my friends are as of late and which are not, so it's been a very philosophically draining week for me. I appreciate that nice comment Sandy, and I think you're quite the intelligent woman yourself. Well, I hope you are because I am beginning to doubt there is anyone wired the way that I am.

I have heard about American Horror Story and I seen that some episodes could be on the erotic side of things, sexually speaking. One of my celebrity crushes, Alexandra Daddario, was featured in one of the episodes. I don't quite know what the premise behind the show is though, is it similar to A Haunting? I used to watch that show way back when before it went on a suspended hiatus before coming back again with a Season 5 and I believe it is still ongoing.

I didn't know the overuse of exclamation marks could signal one's emphasis on laughing about their own jokes, but I scarcely use them myself as I see no need too. I wonder what the repeated use of periods to signal pauses in thought would mean however...

So, am I to understand that each season of American Horror Story stars a certain protagonist? It reminds me of the show, Stranger Things, a show which I had been meaning to watch myself.

Thanks Sandy, I will have to keep that in mind when I find myself in the mood for a philosophical discussion.

Cheers.

But Bobby! You can always chat with me! I've had a bit of a crappy week myself. I had an accident on Monday, and have barely been able to move since. Blah, blah, blah.... there is always someone worse off than you! I say that to comfort myself....

If your friends can't be bothered with you then I don't think they're worth worrying about. You are a highly intelligent lad and I can listen to your chats incessantly. One day you will meet someone worthy of you, make no mistake about it.

Guess what I've been watching of late? I've been getting my teeth into 'American Horror Story' and I thoroughly recommend it. Littlelee told me about it, and I am extremely grateful. It covers everything that scares the excrement out of one. It has even given me nightmares, but that is all part and parcel of watching scary movies, I guess! I can really get into my frightening dreams, and sometimes when I wake up, I write poems about them.

Oh yes! I heard the other day that the overuse of exclamation marks is like laughing at your own jokes. Well, I didn't like that very much! I prefer to leave it up to the thoughts of the recipient as to what I am talking about, don't you?

I have a choice now of watching 'The Chase' or starting my Season Three of 'American Horror Story'! I think I'll choose the latter. It is called 'Coven', and it arrived today. Starring Jessica Lange at her very amusing best, I think there will be plenty of laughs to be had. She didn't get an award for this for nothing!

Cheers Bobby, and always remember - you can chat your heart out to me!
