The video really isn’t relevant to my bog excepting that probably only my age group would remember Catweasel.
I had to Google this —- These labels meant nothing to me — probably because I rarely watch the idiot box —
Ha ha Baby Boomers are probably the only ones that call the television an idiot box.
Gen Z, iGen, or Centennials: Born 1996 – TBD.
Millennials or Gen Y: Born 1977 – 1995.
Generation X: Born 1965 – 1976.
Baby Boomers: Born 1946 – 1964.
Traditionalists or Silent Generation: Born 1945 and before.
Well baby boomers were also the “Flower Power” generation so you may thank us for all the positive changes to western culture 😛 😛 😛
There was an interview on the idiot box (that I claim I rarely watch) re us oldies being bored in our retirement.
I worked for 46 years and would still be working if I were well enough but I am not bored.
I am fortunate enough to live somewhere that isn’t yet all tar and cement so I am blessed with being able to walk amidst trees and wild life or on our beautiful beach.
This is an artificial lake:
The bad attitude to us oldies is because of our culture which is based on the protestant ethic.
Hence the idea that when something is new it is good and when something is old it is to be discarded.
Prior to the Industrial revolution one’s status went up with one’s age.
In plain language — The older you were the more important you were.
It is a cultural norm to ask “How are you?” and “What do you do”
The correct response to “How are you?” is “Good thankyou”’ and woe be tide anyone who answers otherwise.
People don’t want to know how you are but they do want to know what you do.
That way they can ascertain your social status and whether you are more important than they.
So when one is retired and says so – immediately we are put at the bottom of the status hierarchy.
When I was younger and believed a few people could make a difference:
I was in Animal Liberation:
and Trees For life.
Now that I am old and wise I know that I cannot change our culture nor save all life from extinction.
I do what I can in the microcosm
In the following you can see how dry it is here:
I cannot remember when we last had a decent rain.
I feed the magpies and have for more than two decades:
(I am told by the average mindless automaton that magpies should find their own food: or that they are noisy or bother their children or dogs and should be culled.)
Thanks to humans there isn’t enough food for other life forms and all the larger birds: crows: magpies: kookaburras etc kill other birds for food.
I thought I would have “One Down 7.7 billion to go” put on my grave stone.
😛 😛 😛
and be kind to non-human life forms
And now for the ads 😛
I have had excellent feedback from the email readings:
And I am offering email readings at half price from now until the end of the financial year:
Even though it is an email reading I am still able to see some aura colours and see and communicate with people that are no longer in this time space (“passed over”)
Just send a recent photo of yourself .
Contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org
On several occasions people have emailed me a picture and request for reading and I haven’t received their email 😦
So either email me at email@example.com and or phone me on 0885550040 — if you call me on the land line and get the answering machine please leave a message 😀
