China---keep reading my blogs and download my book!

China is now featuring as an increasingly important reader of my blogs. Now, all I need is for you to pass on the link and start downloading my book for my site. It only costs about $US4 and all you need is a Kindle or Tablet.  Go for it! Follow the link and click on the Kindle version of ROSKILL on my website   Happy reading, China!

I am like a kid with a new toy---please let it be sunny tomorrow!

I want sun. I want lots of sun. How else am I going to try out my new solar oven. Hell, it ain't gonna work on a cloudy day. I don't know what the 'preppies' do on a cloudy day. Maybe they just make more 'preppies!'
I shall get some pictures up soon. I do wonder at its construction. You know those things people put in the front of their cars to keep the sun out?-----that is what the material looks like for the solar oven. I reckon my mate, Richard at school could make one for about $50. OK, loo out for the trial run, without food tomorrow. I am interested in seeing how hot it gets on a 'marginal use day. That's 'Auckland talk' for a  Spring day in my fair city. Sunday though is looking promising. I want sun. I want sun!!!!!

The Pope ligitimizes 'non believers.' like they need that?---or care!

The Pope has announced that ‘non-believers’ can live good loves and follow their consciences and therefore be ‘legitimate.’ Nice move, Pope but hardly necessary. No doubt his move will lead to much discussion within the ‘Christian’ community, but generally it will pass by most of us as a big ‘non-event.’
His announcement is of course welcome in the sense that it represents the vast change that has occurred since the days of ‘Holy Inquisitions and Crusades to punish other religious groups.
Now, all we need is for a similar move from the other big religion on the block (and I don’t mean Protestants) and perhaps we could see an end to the strife in the Middle East, along with the Jihadist wars. You reckon they are listening? Yeah, nah---whatever! Maybe that’s just too much to hope for---‘a world at peace with its faiths.’
