Today – I Felt Like Blogging – So What?

I’ve been mulling the prospect of writing the odd blog post again. After 10 full years of daily posts, I took a break… and the absence turned into almost a month and a half. Now… I KNOW I will not return to daily posts. Let me explain, just a little…

  • On returning to this WP blog of mine, I found that the changes the lot over at the so-called WP happy place have made the act of blogging cumbersome… for instance… where’s the bullet point function?? I found the bullet points by fluke… but the indent won’t work… so, the formatting looks poor – in fact, pardon my French… or Greek or Afrikaans – the formatting looks SHITE!!!
  • See if you can justify the whole text in one go… I dare you! Gone of are the days of Ctl A and hitting justify… gone.
    • Yes, feel free to point me in the right direction, if you will. However, my point is that it used to be easy and simple to put together a blog post – and now, in the last year or so, the happy people have conspired to make the users unhappy!
    • I have also long decided that the people who run WP have turned woke… and maybe that’s their agenda… to make it difficult for us old timers to blog easily… thus, if they drive me away – they have driven away another person who does not believe in the current woke narrative.
Fresh air – crucial for mental health!

Right so… onto a few more complaints… no, I’ll refrain. However, I have really been mulling the need to blog, again. You see – the above mentioned narrative is weighing heavily upon my heart. I’m the family’s elder statesman now… father and grandfather. In days gone by – when it was accepted that the older generation pass down their wisdom – it would’ve been perfectly acceptable for me to do just that. But – alas, now I’ll be regarded as a patriarchal tyrant if I dared speak. Yes, Christian, white, male – you get my drift, don’t you?

So… many who cling to the new narrative’s lies and deceit, want me silenced! It’s as simple as that. No longer is healthy debate allowed – it is now the new normal to cancel anyone who even dares to question the supposed science of the narrative.

When I say that the so-called pandemic has caused more hate and anger than a war could, maybe you will have to agree with me. Family members falling out over the need to wear a mask – even on the beach, with a heathy breeze blowing and the sun splitting the stones. I ask you – if I’d told you two years ago that it would be normal – you would have had me confined – in a white coat that ties at the rear… now, celebs advertise toxins you are expected to take – as a “cure” for the bug going about.

Two years ago, you would have told me it is ludicrous to take experimental medication that has NOT been FDA approved because it was still in the clinical trials phase – now people are being bribed with chocolates and spliff rolls to queue for said gene therapy. And the byproducts of said therapy are becoming very evident.

Just months ago – everyone was dying of the dreaded manmade beer-bug… the flu was gone, no one died of old age and/ or heart attacks and all the other serious illnesses associated with a lax lifestyle. Even car crash victims died of the new plague. Now, the more people who get the jab, the more reports of heart attacks and other long term illnesses are being reported. How convenient that all the real death causes have been reintroduced?

I have to ask questions – I also have to point out a few things – and lead by example. My friend Socrates told me to question everything. And folk, that I do – all the time. However, I’m not suddenly wondering – for you see – those who feel that the big pharma companies are noble and beyond reproach – open your eyes – do simple searches – you’ll soon find out that for decades there have been class action cases against many pharma companies. That is where my mistrust began.

You see – there was a point when I wanted to work in pharma – I wanted to do something to help mankind. However, when an astute doctor diagnosed that I was being poisoned – by statins – he instructed me to do some research. You see… some doctors know what is going on, but if they say it outright, they stand to lose their licences – and thus their livelihoods. So… they point you at self education… and it has benefits.

Thus began my quest for truth. I soon realised that statins are toxins – that kill many people and then the deaths are written up as the results of CVD. I have written and blogged about it for years – feel free to use the word statin as a tag in the search here at OMBH – or just visit the Our Health page. So, do you think I should trust the same company that held the statin patent and enriched the shareholders, when I see they’re one of the leading lights in this new vax game?? My simple answer…


I’d like to share one more bit ot anecdotal evidence. Ireland has been in the grip of lockdown fever almost from day one – in mid March 2020. We’ve been forced to stay within a limited radius for almost the duration. The general public are fed on a daily media propaganda diet of death and doom and gloom. People have been radicalised without them even realising it. If you speak out, you are treated as a pariah. You are judged and all sorts of labels are attached to you. Thus, I am now comfortable with the conspiracy theorist tag… because at least that implies that I theorise about something.

OK, let me get to the point – we have walked the beaches, the streets, the shops – we have interacted with many folk while in the process maintaining a sound outlook and building our immune systems. So… when I tell you that about six weeks ago, I caught the common cold, would it not surprise you that it wasn’t the so called deadly beer-bug? I mean… if said beer-bug was so virulent and contagious, should it not have felled me?? Yes, folk – the common cold still exists – and I am happy to say, I’m now fully recovered. A side note: I’m supposed to fall in the danger zone group… an over sixty T2 diabetic. Makes you wonder…

For more than a year, we’ve been speaking with the same shop assistants – no, they say… none of their coworkers have become ill – no, they say… they don’t really know anyone who has contracted the plague. However, I bet that they’ll soon begin telling you about folk who have had advers effects after taking the jab. Yes, I have spoken with a few folk in the last week… who are suffering fatigue – and who have had, or are having, painful advers reactions to some degree.

I better head on… but before I do – I know many folk won’t read this post – or, if they do they won’t leave a like. Yep… woke pressure has turned normal, freedom loving folk into silent bystanders. Me? No – I need to speak – it is my God given, freedom loving right! In passing – I’ll leave you with something one of the sons said the other day – if it’s been “fact checked” “debunked” and/ or censored by mass media and the internet giants, it is most likely the truth!

Beauty – and freedom – attributes that feed the soul – not lies and hate, they destroy!

Makes me wonder… how soon WP will go the same way…

With Gratitude!

There we have it… today OMBH hits a massive milestone – for me, at least! Ten years daily posts! And, it is only because of you… you have supported me and made my blogging life a pleasure! I have said it many times… if I can share a smile then my day has been a success.

This blog started life as a one year challenge to myself – during difficult days – to find some routine, something to do each day – to add a bit of focus during turbulent times! Now, we live through even more turbulent times but my focus has changed. I mentioned last week that I want to take a break from social media… a total break!

However, I will be back at some point – and then, I will want to incorporate the dormant Saffer Worldwide project. Your thoughts and ideas will be most welcome, please and thanks! OK, so… all I would like to reiterate at this stage is my gratitude – I thank you all for plodding along with me on my fun ride! So… why don’t I just end off this post with another random gallery… a photo or two from each of the ten years?

Wow… that’s just a small sample of the first few years… so, maybe in the future I’ll share more galleries… if not, why not?

OK… off I go now… but remember, there is ten year’s worth of content for you to search through… at your leisure and for your pleasure – I hope you will find a smile… that will then perpetuate my mission in life!

Monday’s Many Memories…

This photo took me back to the Algarve… a place I could really, really call home! However, this image shows a tiny world… of water sculpting sand in an ever changing way. That, is what memories are made of… the waters of time sculp our perceptions to form mental images of past happenings… the good, the better the best. All just snatches of what once was…
