No-one ever changed the world by watching X Factor

Yesterday evening, my sister-in-law arrived collecting bits for children living on the streets. By kids, I mean teenagers, many still at school, and by bits, I mean food, basic cosmetics and the necessary to survive a night in the cold. Then on the TV comes X Factor.

Remember, Remember, the End of Movember

It has been amazing to be a part of the Movember project. If you haven’t realised it, there are hundreds of thousands of men out there growing face hair to raise awareness of male-related cancer, primarily prostate cancer. I have had a face full of fuzz for a month and, if I am honest, it is driving me bonkers; I could scratch my face off.

Who will you be kind to today?

Sunday is kindness day. The idea that we could or should be kind to each other surely seems very obvious to any thinking person. It is therefore strange that we have come to a point when we need to make this a sharable concept, and create a day to make us aware of it. It also seems very poignant that this Sunday is also Remembrance Sunday, certainly a day when we should consider the values of kindness.
