I am finding the world is turning against honest people more and more with scams and fraudsters and government taking every penny.
Working long hours and sometimes the money does not seem to add up while others seem to be getting an easy ride, an honest crust and living, a roof over our heads and food in our tummies and being able to protect the ones we love.
Today it seems life is moving faster away from the values of life with animals abandoned, children not valued murdered or beaten and the authorities even turning to murder.
No one cares, no one is listening, where is this all going to end up the focus on more builds and less farming and the areas that feed our nation downtrodden and discarded.
It makes you wonder if the universe is going to shrink with no stars and no more, maybe this is the only way for the planet to go, since creed and killings seems to be the way of today.
The development of modern weapons started as far back as 1364, with the introduction of automatic handguns by 1380 handguns were known across Europe with the matchlock gun appearing in 1400’s. In 1640 the Colonial America introduced the muskets.
In 1498 Rifling principle is discovered with Invention of the wheel lock in 1509, 1540 Rifling appears in firearms and 1607 Settlers arrive in Jamestown, Virginia, by 1630 the first true flintlock, which was used by German mercenaries during the American Revolution. In 1637 first use of firearms proof marks, 1750-1850 Duelling pistols came into fashion. In 1776 American Revolution and 1807 Percussion detonating principle patented, 1825 Percussion cap guns are in general use. 1835 The first Colt revolver. 1840 guns begin to use pin fire cartridges, 1847 the telegraph is invented, 1850 true shotguns in common use for leisure sports. 1854-1856 The Crimean War with the use of muzzle loaded guns, 1859 the first full rim fire cartridge, 1860 Spencer repeating carbine patented which became the principal repeating gun of the civil war. 1861 Breech loaded guns in common use, 1861-1865 American Civil War, 1862 The Gatling gun is invented, 1869 Center Fire Cartridge introduced, 1870-1871 The Franco German War, 1871 First cartridge revolver, 1873 Winchester rifle introduced the first automatic rifle that would become widely used. 1876 Custer defeated at Little Big Horn, 1877 First effective double action revolver, 1879 Lee Box Magazine patented, 1892 Advent of automatic handguns.
Only one purpose to kill and yet with America having the highest killings people are allowed to obtain guns under their gun laws, with too many people in the world is life so undervalued that citizens cannot have the choice to live out their full entitlement of life.
Over centuries, just like Afghan, these weapons are destroying people lives and bringing them to hunger despair taking away the ability to feed themselves and develop healthy nations, instead the politics and power to be with force take control and beg the rest of the world to donate, in the 21st century this is Barrick, only difference we have bigger weapons like the destruction of atomic bombs ending World War 2, again greed. Then talk of Soviet nuclear strategy the dooms day bomb, will man end this planet? They certainly have the ability, has life becomes worthless on all areas.
Now in recent news families in Plymouth are mourning the dead of the innocent taking away the right for child to live their full life. Not so many years ago Australia had a similar instance Port Arthur Massacre with 35 dead.
Mental stability of nations is in constant testing, so why is it not those firearms are banned except for legalised shooting ranges.
Continuation of killing for the sake of it, is going to leave the world so unstable that covid 19 is not going to be the only thing the world will have to contend with, the politicians of the world have the powers to implement laws to protect their people and nations, yet this is not happening. Only when it is too late will they seek to blame and investigate such matters then the next one, will our streets ever be safe to enter or are we living in a war zone?
Is interesting how more and more people choose to be single and if I take my own experiences into consideration I can understand why there are 16 million people aged 16 or over who are single and have never cohabited or married, equivalent to 34.5% of the adult population. There are 19.8 million people not living as a couple equivalent to 39% of the adult population.
Researchers say that unmarried people have a unique advantage: They are more active socially, which means they’re sometimes even happier than their married counterparts. … He also found that the more social interactions people engage in, the happier they are even more so for single people than married people.
When I think of my grandparent’s day and my parents time you were classed as nobody or something wrong if you were not married and tied to the sink with apron strings and depended on the man.
Thank goodness the sixties had an impact on the world and spoke out for women’s right although it is far from even women in some cases are still paid less than their counterparts.
I used to think of sharing a life with someone and trusting them fully in my life as heaven, I have experienced quiet the opposite, I always ended up paying the price for being in a relationship which I found not only the expense of being with someone, but also, I was less confident and did less.
Surprising I found happiness in being with my friend’s male and female and my cats I put more trust into them, they may cost me, but it is worthwhile for the return of love and affection I get.
I found from speaking with people they would not marry again and certainly would not have the pressures of relationships, today I feel more than ever it is such a risky time, since a lot of people have hidden genders.
Being single has not got the stigma it had years ago, I find I am more creative, more outgoing and when ever I went on my own on holidays I was not always alone, people spoke to you and joined you in with what they were doing.
Also, the money you earn and goals you set you are more likely to achieve, I almost got my goal of travel, it was taken at the last minute and I was left homeless after paying off my house with my partner, I promised myself I would never be in that position again.
I am a free spirit and do not like to live by demands of others being able to go where I want and go out when I want and do the activities that please me and at least the only person I must consider is myself.
I have found single life very rewarding, I felt very lonely in my marriage since the demands were great and I was expected to please so many people with what they wanted, being a free spirit suits me and I think most people today it seems they feel the same way.
In life you sometimes reflect, I wanted to mention about a situation with a young woman, this probably happen to many, and they will also feel they are not deserving, and, in many ways, they probably believe the saying life is what you make it, yet it does not seem to happen.
Although some young people get served a bad hand, this person lost her mother very young, the person that kept the harmony and made life worth living.
She did all the legal things the right way, however this night she was going to college to try and get her final year of schooling since her schooling ended two years before she got her grades, her father’s drinking and the living conditions that was forced upon her and her brother made it impossible for her to complete her schooling.
She left the college early in her fathers car and came to an island stopped ,went to go, stopped and a car hit her on the right side which meant she was automatically in the wrong, the car flew into another car the other car went into the brick fence, while she was recuperating her fathers sister signed up for the most expensive quotes three times more than the items, which was a years wages which meant this young women had to work three jobs to pay for the expenses, been told she should be a shame of her self because her father had no car which he would not insure. To add further pressure a late payment would mean more legal charges.
When this lady moved into her own rented flat, she suddenly had more money than living with her father who drank constantly, she worked the long hours, her neighbour the same age as her father asked why she went out so much. She explained what had happened, with a concern look, his reply was how could a father do that to his own daughter, and it would be great if his son and her got together.
As it happens the son and this lady did get together and in no time saved for their own home, after a short time in the marriage cracks started to appear because of the constant problems with the family and neighbours, this young women felt so alone no one to turn to, just criticism and her dreams were falling away she always wanted to travel since she was a small girl, she worked long hours since she did not expect her husband to provide the dream, this was what she wanted, he mentioned it was a dream of his as well, he only worked one job, the following year they would have had the money.
They had made it, long nights and very little sleep she had the security of her home, although there was a nudge, she felt it was not secure, her husband would not talk about the dream or plan with her, instead insisted on an inground pool and with the cars and house paid said it was not up for discussion and they would never be able to afford it and went straight down to the neighbours.
The neighbours and family insisted they were good Catholics and since this young woman was not, she was not worthy and should have children straight away and kept at her, in the end the marriage ended.
The parents of the young man and neighbours insisted this woman who left the situation should have nothing that the young man should have the house and all the money which he took out the money so the young lady had nothing to live on, also she had to go through solicitors to get her clothes out of the house, only when she insisted on 78 percent that she was really entitled to they backed down, and while she packed the truck they took items off.
In life the important thing, I think this young woman realised that you must value yourself and know what your values are, attract the real friends and people in your life, not the ones with a hidden agenda, when both people want something, both should work at it and not expect the other person to do all the work.
One of this lady’s friend would often say you do not want to be a door mat, if you let it, people will wipe their feet on you.
Over many years this person has lost a lot, although she always stayed strong, and the spirit was never broken she just mixed in different circles better ones.
I have fourteen cats and they certainly know who I am, cats see although not like us they see colours differently to us they are colour blind; they can see shades of blue and green, reds and pink are confusing, purple can look like another shade of blue, cats’ senses are very strong they often go by smell or sound, and they quickly pick up the sound of their owner’s voice.
Cats feel a very strong connection to their person, they respond well to calmness and do not often handle any tension or stressful situations, they will sometimes hide away or wet or do naughty things because they feel threatened.
I have one cat that when he sees me, he meows for me to pick him up and wants immediate attention or if he hears me will meow to tell me where he is.
All my cats want my attention, which jealously can slip in, and they will sit on the other cat to take over they are all individual and want different attention from myself.
They can miss you greatly, years back I went away for a few days I was told they sat on top of my car until I came home once they knew I was back one jumped through the window into my arms and the other curled around my legs, they are very connected.
One of my cats felt threatened by another and for her wellbeing I gave her to a friend, every time I visit, and she hears my voice she comes up for attention, when you truly show you care they are connected in every way.
A cat chooses their human and will sometimes choose to be with someone else not like dogs they are very independent, although if all their needs are meet a cat will not normally stray and be very loyal, if you save a cat, they will love you for ever and be very devoted.
