  • Seniors, Are Supermarkets encouraging laziness in meal preparation?

    I was was shopping in Asda, (owned by Walmart USA) a few days ago, when I spotted a pack of 2 Boiled Eggs for £1, next to the salads, in my local UK branch. I appreciate that some people like to save time in preparing meals but surely it takes so little time to boil and shell an egg, that I fear that we are being encouraged to be lazy. 2 boiled... show more

  • Why was Sir Thomas More canonised in 1935 as a martyr?

    There are many churches in the UK named for St. Thomas More, the Roman Catholic martyr, and yet it was hardly Christian to be personally responsible for burning Lutherans and Protestants at the stake for their beliefs. They too believed in God, just had a different approach. How does the RC church justify More's Sainthood when he was... show more
    There are many churches in the UK named for St. Thomas More, the Roman Catholic martyr, and yet it was hardly Christian to be personally responsible for burning Lutherans and Protestants at the stake for their beliefs. They too believed in God, just had a different approach. How does the RC church justify More's Sainthood when he was responsible for these killings? Presumably Catholics could kill anyone they wished to, as long as it kept the Pope happy.

  • Seniors, Is "First Footing" just a New Year thing in the UK?

    In order to invite Good Fortune into the home, the old tradition of First Footing was often practised. A dark haired male was sent outside at 23.55 and he would be allowed back in as soon as the New Year chimes had finished ringing out. He carried a small piece of coal, a chunk of bread and a little salt, and wished a Happy New Year to all within... show more
    In order to invite Good Fortune into the home, the old tradition of First Footing was often practised. A dark haired male was sent outside at 23.55 and he would be allowed back in as soon as the New Year chimes had finished ringing out. He carried a small piece of coal, a chunk of bread and a little salt, and wished a Happy New Year to all within the home. Thus ensuring that warmth, and food were plentiful for the coming year. Is this superstitious tradition still carried on? And does anything similar happen elsewhere? It is said to hail from the Celts of old.

  • Seniors, Have you tried the 'benefits' of Facebook without actually joining it?

    Everyday I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I did the night before and what I will do later, and with whom. I offer them pictures of my family, my pets, my front garden and me standing in front of favourite landmarks, having lunch, and doing what anyone and everyone does all day. I also... show more

I also listen to their conversations, give them a "thumbs up" and tell them I like them, and it works just like Facebook! I already have four people following me: two policemen, a private detective and a Psychiatrist. LOL!

  • Does anyone still do Brass Rubbing these days?

    Some years ago when I visited old churches in the UK I would see people making brass rubbings of medieval wall memorial brasses. Was this hobby just a UK thing, or did people in other countries do it too?

  • Seniors, Did any of you learn to play a musical instrument in your youth?

    I dabbled with the trombone when I was a boy attending The Salvation Army after much persuasion from my parents. Nowadays, I wish I had stuck with it or at least learned to play the piano. Have we any quality musicians on the SC category, or were you like me and just dabbled?
