Half Full Water Bottles


It is the case that many of those who are found dead in the desert from dehydration, are still carrying a half full bottle of water.

Seemingly they feared running out of water, and so they saved it to the point of dehydration.

Don't make the same mistake with your life, enjoy your life as best you can; as it will most certainly end before you have enjoyed yourself to the max!

Further Advice To Taxpayers


Given that the state sector does not provide the services for which we pay, write to your MP and ask him/her exactly why we should be paying ever increasing rates of tax for something tat is clearly badly run and non functioning.

Advice To Taxpayers


Given that the state sector is broken and that services that we pay for are not being delivered, and given that the tax burden is the highest it has been for decades, a taxpayers' strike (were that possible) would be more than justified.

Advice To The Goblin of Doom


Staging a fake arrest for the media doesn't alter the fact that had the environmentalists not had a hissy fit about nuclear power in the 1970's/80's, we wouldn't need to use coal in the 21st century to keep the lights on!

Advice To Prince Harold - Careless Talk Costs Lives

Ken's New Year Message


2022 was a pretty hard and miserable year for many people around the world.

Sadly, it appears to me, that 2023 may in fact be worse for a large number of people.

When faced with an uncertain and, to a large extent, worrying future people have the choice of freezing like rabbits caught in the headlights or doing the best they can to live and enjoy their lives whilst they are still able.

My advice is to do the latter!
