I’m Back! My Sabbatical is Over.

I’m back. However, posts will not be as frequent as during the old days. Additionally, I’ve decided not to allow your beautiful comments partly because of the time that takes to reply. If there’s one thing I need in excess these days, it’s Time!

Holocaust Remembrance Day: Interview with Survivor Israel Arbeiter

Published on 14 Aug 2011

Interview with Holocaust survivor Israel Arbeiter.  Sadly, it seems to end when you feel there must be a great deal more he wants to say.

A Complete Break

My recent experience in hospital and the prospect of further investigations into other health problems has made me realise I need to take a complete break from blogging and social media, which will include Rogues & Vagabonds and First Night Design. I hope that occasionally I will be able to create some art pieces but I will not be promoting them on First Night Design, simply adding them to my various galleries as below.

A historic shipwreck discovered in a ‘medieval breaker’s yard’ in Hampshire is likely to be the remains of 600-year old warship, the Holigost. But what do we know about it?

Dr Ian Friel is a historian and expert advisor to Historic England.The Holigost was one of four famous vessels known as the ‘great ships’, the biggest built in medieval England. These impressive warships were a symbol of royal power, built specifically to open the way for an English invasion of France. They were the personal property of King Henry V and the closest thing he had to a state navy. Completed between 1415 and 1420 these ships were the Trinity Royal, the Jesus, the Grace Dieu and the Holigost; their names bear witness to Henry’s personal devotion to the Holy Trinity.

The wreck thought to be the Holigost has been found alongside the Grace Dieu

The state of things

A good analysis of what has been and what state the world is in now.

Society is becoming very deeply divided and tribal, politics,religion race and wealth are the dividing factors.

After World War 2, there was a period when things seemed to be going reasonably well. During that time we saw nations rebuilding themselves along with the fall of colonialism, businesses were booming and the quality of life was improving for the majority, medical care was made easily available, housing was easy…
