Reflections by Pete

I had written a reflection on this but in the aftermath of a 3 day spree of looting, theft and destruction I decided against sharing online. The following few days (weeks even) saw an overwhelming surge ofContinue reading “Reflections by Pete”

Disabled …Me, no ways …?

What’s in a word …Disabled  (me …☹)? No ways !!! disabled  (dɪˈseɪbəld) adj a. lacking one or more physical powers, such as the ability to walk or to coordinate one’s movements, as from the effects of a disease or accident, or through mental impairment b. (as collective noun; preceded by the): the disabled. Usage: Nowadays it is better to refer to people with physical disabilities of various kinds by describing the specific difficulty in question rather than talking about the disabled as a group, which is considered somewhat offensive. Some people also object to the word disabled to refer to facilities for people with disabilites, and prefer the word accessible Collins English Dictionary – Complete and Unabridged, 12th Edition 2014 © HarperCollins Publishers 1991, 1994, 1998, 2000, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2014 I hadn’t given this much thought , I guess I’m too stubborn for my own good, too proud to admit it perhaps but for the first time this week I began to ponder … am I really disabledContinue reading “Disabled …Me, no ways …?”

Its going to be a long hot summer

Helloooooooo Summer my old friend ! Well…surprise surprise….I’m back. I really didn’t realize that so many months had passed.

For me as summer looms large so doesContinue reading “Its going to be a long hot summer”
