ok i get it i am easily pleased but

I am in fact remarkably hard to impress, it’s my cynicism, just about all efforts to impress me are greeted with a raised eyebrow and often a sigh of disappointment, unless you are one of my offspring then it’s the easily pleased thing ^_^

so on the rare occasion in life when I see someone whose efforts at something do impress me I feel obliged to share, and this man has seriously impressed me, ok bit of background this guy- Christian Nock- is walking the whole of the English coastline to raise money and awareness of the plight of ex service men who become homeless, this is his page for those who would like to help with donations etc Christian around britain, obviously it would be excellent of you could drop by his page even donating a small amount will help.

I have to confess I knew nothing of this entire subject until I discovered Mr Nock and I have to take my hat off to him he has my full respect, it’s awful how little support ex service people are given especially when it is taken into consideration how much they have given of themselves, I am not here to debate the politics but I am writing this post because it is important to recognise, and pay respect to, people who have given so much, and often put in situations not many of us would consider, and often most of us would actively refuse,

I personally believe in the need for defence and it is such a delicate and complex world, often negotiations are on a fragile thin line and that’s before these people do their service, and usually many go that extra mile and how do we as a country thank them? leaving them homeless? that is about as far wrong as anyone can get, I for one would advocate lifelong support and this should be a given basic not something that charities organise but something we all can feel proud of! I pay my taxes- god knows I hate it but I pay it – and I would much prefer those taxes I pay supported these men and women and provided them with a basic standard of living, a home, food, warmth, where as right now all my taxes go on building damn silly structures which blight my town, and not even a year old it has, and quite rightly so, been nominated for the carbuncle award, groan but I digress, so stop ruining my town with such awful structures, stop wasting my taxes on fly by night schemes that go down the pan the next year, and instead let’s pay for something that should be there by right, I would attempt to house all homeless people and I would definitely start with housing ex service people.

kizzylee puts away soapbox and wanders off to watch a horror film,

have a great evening everyone and to Christian at whichever point you are up to i hope for you it does not rain nor get too cold and for homeless people everywhere i hope for you a home a shelter and support.

love to all

xx

  1. Great post, please tell me you went off to watch the original Halloween??? Thats my fave of all time..:-)

    1. hiya, and thank you ed i often wonder how well posts like this are received although it got likes yours was the first comment and i am so glad it was a positive one ^_^ and to answer your question unfortunately it wasn’t i watched something called amenesiac and thought it was rubbish ^_^ very much a case of a film trying to hard if you know what i mean it didn’t make it on to my super excellent films review page and in fact i have watched so many bad films lately i was thinking i may as well set up a rubbish films review page ^_^ ahh well you have put me in mind now i may go watch the old classic halloween ^_^ have an excellent day and thank you for chatting x

      1. No problemo, as for rubbish, the Blair Witch Project was the worst even though it mad tons of money I left the theater feeling ripped off..:-)

      2. oh my blair witch, sounds daft but i loved it! well the ending bit ^_^ right up until it was explained to me that it said at the beginning they were made to face corner so as to not see well that ruined it for me until then i had all sorts of weird imaginings as to why he was stood like that, pffft i was never so unimpressed as i was then, thing is they had such a brilliant idea it could have been a really good film and that is my problem half the time they take a good idea and go nowhere with it or maybe i am just hard to please ^_^ have a great evening x

  2. Great share Kizzy…we have the same issue here. And I agree with you 100%. We do offer health benefits to our veterans, but when they have no home, no address, no phone…how are they to know? And that’s the very least of it. I’ve heard of your Mr. Nock even here on the other side of the pond. I’ll pray for his success, laud his efforts, and join you in your wishes for all homeless to have a warm place to lay their heads. xo

    1. hiya lovely i have to say i was horrified when i learnt i had no idea then hubby came home from work said he had heard of mr nock on the radio soon as he told me about him i said right i am going to blog him lets get as many people to know about this as possible we have a tiny charity shop in our town that raises money for ex service people i went in and asked how it was were they getting support etc and she said no nothing and they had only two shops that’s in the whole of uk -two shops and no support so they had to raise the rent themselves and it left little for the people they were trying to help i was just disgusted i always shy away from politics but lately our government has messed up the country so much i find it hard to stay quiet now ahh well i have children to feed and even that is hard because the damn government doesn’t give me any help either so we struggle by on hubbys wage which is so low we actually fall below the recognised poverty line pffft anyways on to nicer subjects i am off to watch a film with my youngest so time to snuggle and feel christmassy ^_^ loves and hugs to you my lovely xx
