Children in Need 

There are so many children who need our help. Children who are disadvantaged, unwell and poverty stricken and in need of mankinds help. May we all come together and help the children as the children are the beautiful future. 

Please donate and help the children and help with their support and care of people who help them. There are so many young children who need our help. Poverty stricken children who dont know where the next meal will come from and their home life is uncertain and dangerous. 

Some children suffer violence at home and a turbulent upbringing but it us as humanity who can help them be safe and free from harm. There is no worse sight than sadness in a Childs eyes. All children deserve a magical fun childhood and sleep safe in bed at night and have magical childhood memories. 

Last Christmas upon visiting a child in hospital I seen a small boy and he was stood at the edge of his ward alone. He looked sad and lonely. He was unwell and was in there for the Christmas period. It turned out he had no home and no family as he lived in care and Christmas for him was a lonely one with no family, warmth, love or presents. How can a child not be allowed to enjoy the true magic of Christmas? But sadly he is not alone across the UK in this situation. It was sad to see his little lost face. I hope this year is better for him. 

There was also a small child of about one years old in the hospital. Luckily they had presents all round them but they were very unwell and also in over christmas. But the child needs help and donations from us. 

There are many children across the globe like this who need the help and love and support of humanity. Without the donations the children will suffer. They wont get the proper care they need and we cannot allow this to happen to them. 

Please donate so the children in hospitals have proper care and toys and clothes and warmth. We can all spare £1 upwards even if it is a little it still helps improve a childs life. 

Being unwell is not something that happens to other peoples children. It can happen to anyones children at anytime. I spent time in a childrens ward after an operation and there was toys and games for me to play with. This is how it should be for all children and we can help. 

It helps pay for carers and Foster carers and people who will take care of children in need. Surely your money couldn’t be better spent. We all have a heart and can relate to humanity. We all want put food on tables for childrens mouths and help struggling families. 

For our children we must never slacken, we must never give in, never let them lose hope and always give them heart. They are the future generation and a generation who will hopefully look after us when we are old just as we looked after them. 

Please donate and help the children in need today

Let the scales of good deeds weigh down heavy and may the children grow to appreciate humanity for the love it shows to all people. 

Thank you so much

A broken heart

A few weeks ago I visited Prestatyn beach in North Wales. I go here quite often I find it quite relaxing especially around dinner time of an evening towards sunset. There are a few people about walking the dogs on a nice walk. Its quite reflective. 

But one evening I was greeted by the sounds of something I dont hear often or at all – a grown man crying his eyes out….

I sat on the steps overlooking the beach and the sea. Behind me was the car park. I sat gazing out to sea enjoying the sunset when I heard a noise behind me which alerted me. The sound of sobbing. I turned round and seen a man sat in his car. He had his hands over his eyes. At first I thought he was rubbing his eyes. I looked back out to sea again. Then I heard sobbing again. 

I turned round to see the man crying heavy. Tears ran down his face and he wiped them away. He gazed at his phone and burst into tears again. He wiped them away but the tears fell fast. 

I paused as it was one of them moments where I didn’t know what to do. Should I go and see if he is OK?  Or is that intruding on his grief? I decided to leave him to grieve alone. Im not one for sharing troubles so I decided not to interfere. 

He sat and looked round the place and his emotions settled for a minute. He checked his phone and once again began to sob. 

What could reduce a man to such tears?  I could tell this wasn’t an argument. This man had very recently suffered a tragic loss. As he was alone I assumed he had just lost his girlfriend/wife. He wasn’t an old man I would guess in his forties. He gazed round and cried again.

I wondered was this a special place for them over the years?  Had they strolled hand in hand together here over the years down the sea front along the promenade? Had nature been cruel and brought an end to an era?  He was now alone with just memories and pictures on his phone. 

I felt sorry for him. Here is everyone happy going about their lives unaware of the heartbreak people near by must be going through. I couldn’t imagine the heart ache he must be experiencing. I sat close by I tried to smile briefly if he looked my way. He was too wrapped up in sadness and memories. 

This went on for ten minutes. He started his car engine had a quick glance along the seafront sobbed again and left. I watched him drive away. Was this a final goodbye I wondered. A chapter in his life of coming here to such a sentimental place possibly had come to an end.  His world had fell apart. 

I hoped he was alright as he drove off. He probably was returning to an empty lonely house full of sadness,  pictures and memories. I couldn’t imagine going to bed alone to a cold mattress knowing that person should be there. His world clearly had fell apart and his soul forever tortured. 

So I sit and wonder while I am happy – how many people out there have suffered the same sadness and I gave them a thought. It goes to show we must enjoy our lives while we can.  

Perhaps places we go to us are nice and simple basic places but to others it could be a magical place with such memories to them and others. Places of love and happiness and sentiment. I have special places to me that hold meaning. 

So if you have a special someone and a special place make the most of it. Tell them often you love them and enjoy your magical place together for times goes by on the blink of an eye… 

The death penalty

“If you must break the law do it to seize power,  in all other cases – observe it” – Julius Cesar. 

This is a topic which is often raised with those for it and those against.  Into the subject goes morality and ethics. Should the death penalty be allowed?  Should it be re-instated?  Is there warrant for it? 
In my own personal opinion I believe there is a warrant for it.  I often hear on the radio of murders and serial killers and horrific crimes and its very upsetting.  Often these sick crimes are rewarded with hardly any kind of a punishment.  How is prison a punishment in these days?  They get to stay safe indoors in nice enough conditions and get priviledges and some even get computers. Why are these people being given anything?  They should be made to exist in the worse of conditions. 

Once I visited Beaumaris jail on the isle of Anglesey.  This was a jail in the Victorian times and is now a tourist attraction.  As soon as I walked in I could feel the tight suffocating atmosphere. I could instantly tell suffering had took place here for any crimes.  The rooms were small and some with no windows. The inmates had to work hard just for their breakfast.  They were punished hard if stepped out of line.  How have prisons changed so much that inmates are now seen having fun and drinking and mobile phones sneaked in unnoticed.  What kind of places have prisons become where it is acceptable to be in and not too much hardship?  Where the life is OK. Prisons should be feared. They should be a place where human rights for murderers is hard to come by.  

Some will say its inhumane to execute them.  But where was their humanity and humane views when they took innocent lives?  These people are exempt from humanity.  They are not apart of it. 

They should be wiped out and took out of life so we don’t have to care for them. This will free up space in prisons with people of lesser crimes. This will save the tax payer paying to keep them and the money can be put towards a good thing instead of useless to society monsters.  

People say ‘oh killing them is an easy way out for them’ but I dont care.  I dont care about that I want them gone and no longer a threat to anyone and not allowed to live. They take up space and time and money. If I murdered someone I would expect to lose my life and why not?  

If someone had murdered someone close to me I dont see jail as justice not in the modern day.  When has society become so weak it is scared to punish such evil? What kind of society do we live in where murderers can still have their life and live it out in an OK environment protected by laws and human rights after they took a life away? 

Surely human rights shouldnt apply to these people.  They opted out when they disrespected the human rights of others. 

Recently it was on the radio of a man who killed a man in an unprovoked attack and punched him.  He died and the man who killed him got 6 years in jail.  How is 6 years justice for the victims family??  The victim got an eternal sentence.  His life was ended!  

He faces a small punishment then walks back into civilization to enjoy his life and see friends and family etc.  Whereas his. Victim is gone forever… He has murdered someone.  What if he does it again? 

I know in certain situations we must be careful incase there isn’t much evidence but one concrete evidence where is the issue with putting monsters down? Imagine if one of these people escaped.. 

Some will argue that these people can be rehabilitated and helped but for what purpose?  They can never be released and allowed back into society.  They can never be allowed a normal life.  What is the point in wasting resources on these people?  They knew what they were doing when they broke the law.  So if you cant do the time dont do the crime.  I understand rapists and thieves etc should be given second chances etc but murderers especially cold brutal murderers should be put to sleep.  Im not refering to accidental murder as in manslaughter etc because that is just unfortunate.  There are situations where you might accidentally kill someone etc and thats fair enough its unfortunate but intended murder is evil.  Child murderers are evil etc why are they allowed to continue?  The yorkshire ripper for example costs the British taxpayer alot of money a year to house him etc why bother?  He cant be free. Can the money not be put to a more useful cause?  

Society needs to be stricter on those who operate outside its core.  Outside the mainstream of society which operates nice behaviour and compassion.  Why should nice people be put at risk?  

Perhaps knowing you will die too will make murderers think twice.  Everyone knows murder is wrong.  The only regret some of these murderers have is being caught.

But we all have our own opinions on this naturally.  Mine is to keep society such as our children truly safe…

Anglesey

The isle of Anglesey hangs off the coast of North west Wales and is a beautiful place. It has been kept the same for 100s of years and the big corporations as of yet have not managed to take over Anglesey.  Here is where Prince William and Kate Middleton lived for a short while on the other side of the island near Treaddur bay.  

There is very little here.  Old derelict farmhouses and cottages and beautiful seaside beaches and coasts.  Despite it being oldy worldy and dominated by fields it is a fantastic place!  The coastal walks and the beaches are amazing and beautiful.  This is not a place of modern hotels such as travel lodges and holiday inns.  Anglesey is mainly a cottage holiday and a caravan holiday.  There are some old amazing cottages to rent out for a few days. If you had a motorhome you can park overlooking the sea. Imagine waking up to that every morning! 

Heading around the island on the way through there are various parking points where you can overlook the sea and in the distance the mountains.  There are many small coves to walk along and enjoy the views.  They are usually relatively quiet and relaxing.  At times you can see seals or other creatures such as dolphins if you are lucky.  

At Penmon further along the Menai straits there is an old derelict priory and a church.  This is a quiet unknown place but beautiful. I once went into the church and it was such a great atmosphere. Candles burned and flickered and there was a lovely smell. The sun shone through the big stain glass window at the front. It was amazing.  The church was a church from years gone by and still used by the locals and was so peaceful.  This is one of the first times I had been in a church and enjoyed it. There was no one in due to it being a saturday and it was quiet and peaceful and the smell of incense hung in the air.  I can see why people are connected with religious buildings as here was God in all his glory and here was peace. 

Outside in the gardens there is a small lovely walk and at the end of the path is an old wishing well and a rose growing next to the well.  There is usually one rose placed above the well by a groundskeeper and although quiet and isolated it is very romantic.  There is talk of a ghost of a nun who used to spend her time there and wanders the area. The area is beautiful,  mysterious and romantic. Behind the priory is an old cemetry.  Numerous people who have tributes there were lost at sea.  

Going further up paying the toll there is a lighthouse at the top.  It is a fascinating coastal spot.  There is a lovely cafe where you can sit outside and overlook the lighthouse.  It has such a maritime feeling to the place.  The lighthouse rings on the hour and adds to a fantastic atmosphere. Penmon overlooks Puffin Island just off the coast. If you go last thing at night the light is spinning on the lighthouse.  It is just like a childrens adventure book such as the famous five. Absolutely fantastic location. 

Further down the road is the small seaside town of Beaumaris.  Beaumaris is on the banks of the Menai straits and has a Pier where you can look over the Menai Bridge. It has an amazing feel to it. There’s a few nice shops in the town and cafes to eat.  There is a tea shop which remains here which you dont see much of now on mainland Britain.  As I entered I was hit with a smell of tea and scones which sent me back to childhood.  

Beaumaris is steeped in history and as you enter the town you will see a castle turret and upon entering the town Beaumaris castle dominates.  The castle is a fantastic walk round the grounds and you can walk on the walls with great views.  The castle is still as good as intact and is huge!  It is well worth a visit.  

Another favourite place in Anglesey is the Menai straits.  As you drive down a road which runs along side the straits you get a beautiful view.  It was here recently that a tropical turtle was found all the way from Mexico washed up. Amazingly he washed up right outside the Anglesey sea zoo!  The water is beautiful to see and is a lovely blue colour you see rarely in the UK. Going over the Menai straits is Menai bridge. This is a unique looking bridge and is lit up at night looking amazing.  

The sea zoo is also worth a visit as this has a unique feel to it unlike most zoos I have been in as most aquariums to me are the same but I enjoyed the Anglesey sea zoo.  Was very….British.  All the creatures I think within it are found in British waters.  

If your lucky enough to be there at night and the moon is big and bright you shall witness beauty.  The moon hangs still in the sky and there is peace and tranquility.  The tide moves slow and the moon reflects off the Menai straits.  This is natural beauty!  

There is so much to see and do for such a small quiet place.  Benllech beach is very popular during the summer months and it is a fantasic location with a huge beach.  Even during winter it is nice when people mainly go dog walking etc but the atmosphere is the same.  The island feeling never goes away. 

Lligwy beach is popular amongst tourists and a fantastic sun place during the summer.  The view is nice and it is a lovely walk at early evening.  

My favourite place in Anglesey has to be point Lynas.  This is a hidden secret paradise.  A small beach cove with beautiful water and not busy often.  Here on the cliffs is amazing views over the cove.  It is a wonder of the UK and not to be missed!  On a sunny day you can see a long distance out to sea.  There is a bench upon the cliffs to sit and just enjoy the amazing view in peace. As you stand upon the cliff top overlooking the cove you might be lucky to experience the gentle breeze blowing through the trees and hedges and hear the whisper in the wind and feel magic in the air. Upon the cliffs at the top is the old lighthouse which adds to the atmosphere.  A real paradise! 

Anglesey really is a paradise and despite its ancient ways and not been changed I think this is part of the charm and an escapism from the modern world.  This is a place for everyone in the world to enjoy!  Whether a walker or a fisherman or a bather you will find your dream in Anglesey.  It is a glimpse into a Great Britain from times gone by.  

My personal opinion is that I hope this place never changes and remains like this secret gem for the rest of my life!
