OK, I guess the title is wrong, because it really is quiet at the moment!
I am back in the swing of work, but contemplating taking part in a local tournament of X-Wing, the Star Wars game that I play. I will probably be up against hard core players less than half my age and will probably be roadkill, but hey it should be fun.
I have added more to my zombie book - worrying how the Ebola situation is providing inspiration...
There has been a bit of a mix up with my daughter starting her new job, but hopefully she will be able to start soon. Fingers crossed...
Our younger son, who I will now start to call Arnie on this blog, is entering his first power lifting contest next month. Really proud of this kid, he has changed himself from a shy chubby kid into a young man who can lift silly amounts. Yes, he is being sensible, training properly and using the right techniques. No he is not taking steroids. Can't wait to see him do his stuff.
OK, going to take a serious tangent here. Things have not been quiet in France, where there have been some terrible things done in the name of religion, followed by massive parades showing solidarity with the dead, and in favour of free speech (even though some of the political leaders who turned up to take part do not allow such free speech in their own countries). But this has all felt a bit wrong to me. OK, the dead people should not be dead, but do we really have the unrestricted right to insult others and their beliefs? Can someone walk into a bar, hurling insults and not expect a punch on the nose? Surely, if we are responsible enough to have truly free speech, we should be sensible enough to know when to respect others.
OK, enough of that! Hope you are having a great week!
