Environmental Razors

I made a bit of an error the other month, and yet perhaps I didn't... Coming to the end of my current stock of cartridge blades for my razor, I thought I'd lose the plastic component and go old school. The metal/plastic combination of modern cartridge razor blades makes them almost impossible to recycle (unless... Continue Reading →

Vote for me (or at least, vote!)

I'm in the interesting position of actually being on a ballot paper next month! I first joined my parish council in 2007 (twelve years ago!) under the rules of co-option. That means there was a space on the council due to someone leaving but there was no election scheduled. I can't remember now why the... Continue Reading →

Community is about relationship, and in general we think of communities as groups of people - human, non-human - living closely together. Nowadays of course (well, for humans) that doesn't always mean living within a readily definable geographic space. Many of our communities are disparate and physically unidentified, with the relationship existing mainly or solely... Continue Reading →

Ancestry and GDPR

One of the perennially interesting discussions at Druid Camp is ancestry and the ancestors. Druidry largely concerns itself with relationships of all kinds, with human people and non-human people, with awareness of landscape and season and cycle, but there is a tripartite feature on ancestors that inspires and embraces those relationships. Within (at least, modern)... Continue Reading →

Druid Camp 2018

So here I am, home again from Druid Camp. A simple name for a complex community gathering, and one I've been going to for around twenty years now. This year, for the first time, because of (well) stuff, I've been directly involved in it all as part of the core team, alongside Mark Graham. But... Continue Reading →

Activism, Druidry and Mission Lifeforce

Mission Lifeforce   (a post drafted on the incredibish blog for use in the Druid Camp discussion forum)The wonder of Druid Camp is the range of experience and learning that is freely shared and gifted to and by the community. From healers to singers to writers to dancers to... everything. Once again I particularly loved... Continue Reading →

Unsocial Media

There's something unsociable about social media that doesn't want to share... Just had an email from WordPress to tell me that Facebook will be shutting off the sharing function from WordPress to Facebook, which I use to share my blog posts on the Facebook profile. It's possible that will impact my account at Blipfoto too,... Continue Reading →

Anyone would think…

...there was an election in the offing. And there is, and I don't mean the one that's ever more likely regarding the incompeten... I mean incumbent in Drowning Street. Managing a message board is never easy. I've been online since before the Internet and often spent all night chatting in various bulletin boards, long before... Continue Reading →

Designing Roads…

I'm not a civil engineer nor a highways engineer, but I'm sat in the middle of a village where we're probably due to double in size in the next decade, and the main and only through road is historically narrow and crossed by a railway line with a blind bended hump backed bridge. Traffic is... Continue Reading →
