Simples

All sorts of thing have come about because of this blog and one of the latest was an email offering a chance to try out a web site selling T shirts, all I had to do was order a T shirt and write a review afterwards.

Now the first thing that struck me was that any company that was prepared to ask for reviews in this way must have a lot of confidence in their product and service, Iffyton T Shirt, did not disappoint at all. The first thing is the layout of the site, it’s just like walking down a street with shops, and each shop is a macro site selling different T shirts, a great idea and easy to use. The major hurdle was choosing a T shirt, this was the hardest part as there are so many and none I had seen before. Then came the problem, at my end not theirs, I ordered twice by mistake, now I’m sure a lot of companies would have just sent 2, but not them, they sent a quick mail checking (in the nicest way) that I knew what I was doing. Having quickly confirmed my error they dispatched the T shirt and it arrived just as I was leaving for my holiday, so it got lots of use in the sunshine. Now with any printed design the big worry is that it will fall off with washing, but having just hung it up to dry I can confirm it looks as good as it did when I took it out of the bag. So top marks all round for Iffyton T Shirt.

While I’m in a plugging mood here is a new blog by a person who inspired me to be more adventurous in taking and working with pictures, flipside is another creation by Chris Orwig who I came across in a training video for lightroom where he worked on lots of his images, giving you an insight into how he did things and why.

A last link for you, had this in an email and although I don’t normally click on adverts I could not resist this, if you live outside the UK it wont make much sense as its based on an advert for car insurance that running here at the moment, but the Meerkats catchword “Simples” has started to worm its way in to everyday language.

And finally the photo, this is about 7 images stuck together and is taken in the very heart of the Lake District, just off the side of Ullscarf, facing north toward Keswick. It’s a very large image so click on it for a better view.

This is a call to everyone to please step outside the right vs. left paradigm. While there are important issues worth debating within this paradigm, all of them will be moot if we do not focus on a much greater issue outside this paradigm. Thomas Jefferson warned of wealth concentrating to such an extent that it threatened the state. Nowadays the media has taught us all very well to ridicule anyone who talks of central banks usurping the power of government. Well now I suppose the media will have to laugh at themselves, as many outlets from Newsweek to the Financial Times of London are openly discussing the creation of a "bank of the world" that will control economic policies of every nation. I invite you to watch this video, which details how this is currently taking place. While it focuses on our current officials' cooperation with these plans, it steps out of the typical political paradigm by highlighting the cooperation of both parties. Please do not look to politicians to protect us. Only we can protect us. And our first step must be to reach out to police and military. Without their cooperation, the global elite won't have the muscle to exercise their will of oppression. Please share this oath-keepers blog with them.

Beautiful. I first thought it was a painting. Also, it was as if I got to see God's creation immediately after he created it.... very pristine!
