I promise to start giving to charity


I’m reminded of the ‘Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ when Ford Prefect describes hyperspace as “It feels like being drunk.”
“What’s so bad about being drunk?” asks Arthur Dent.
“Try asking a glass of water.” replies Ford.

I feel drunk, but with none of the more pleasant effects…damn! And all the time, I just keep thinking…but tomorrow, or the day after, I will be better. Many others are less fortunate in their illnesses. If you have read Akerman’s blog, you will know what I’m talking about.

I asked D what we could do to make the planet a better place. Ever practical (and starting with the problem of global warming), she suggested we fit eco-light bulbs throughout the house, get the house insulated (intra-wall) and start turning things off instead of leaving them on standby. It’s a start. Later I will see if she has any suggestions how we can help to reduce world poverty. I pledge to the readers of this blog that by the end of January 2006 I will have arranged a standing order from our family bank account to charity. We used to donate this way to Greenpeace until a growing family outpaced my income.
