Middle East & West - Like Oil & Water

One day there will be a moment when the penny drops for the leftist loons who bang on about 'Islamophobia' and support Sharia Law within the UK (and elsewhere outside of the Muslim world).

But, by way of helping to educate and open eyes, I'll let this video do the talking.

George Clooney: Hypocrite

George Clooney has now fallen into that category of Hollywood SJW snowflake libtards that I cannot stomach watching any more. Why? Because of their 'head-in-the-clouds-la-la-land' view on the world and its current events sweeping across its now-useless borders. To what am I referring? Unfettered, unregulated and devastating migration of predominantly fighting age males.

Let's make no mistake here - these are not refugees. They are economic migrants. I'll leave it there and let you watch the video, which for me, just epitomises the bullshit hypocrisy of Hollywood, and other so-called celebrity types who forget that they are not politicians, just disgustingly over-paid entitled people.

My Dream Updated

Well, June has arrived and my dream has not. Reason? The new job I have has its start date set for September, so the funds I thought would be available for the bike in this month are simply not there.

In actual fact, this has given me time to sit back and look around at the current market place for the style of motorbike I desire, and I'm glad I did as I've found something different - in a way - that I've not set my sights on. It's another in-line four motorcycle made by Benelli, an Italian motorcycle manufacturer with 100 years of experience behind them. Another plus is price. The model I'm looking at is almost £4,000 less. Granted, its engine is 300cc smaller, but in fairness the Kawasaki is a rocket on wheels, and would most likely put me in a situation where my safety could be at risk.

So the new choice of bike is the Benelli BN 600i (shown below), but as to when I'll get it remains up in the air at the present time due to the lateness of the new job start date - riding a fast two wheeler in autumn with the winter soon to close in is not my idea of good biking weather. For me, to enjoy such a bike, I'm looking toward the drier, warmer months.Fair weather rider? Aye, I suppose so, but I'd like to live long enough to enjoy the bike beyond its run-in period ;)

My Dream - Z900

The last time I owned a motorcycle was back in the late 80s and the damn thing was stolen, never to be seen again. That day I vowed never to bother with motorbikes again.

Fast foward to the present day and the motorcycle bug has bitten me - HARD. So I'm sharing the official Kawasaki video of the bike I intend to get. Not to everyone's taste, granted, but I just love Kawasaki bikes and the Z900 calls to my biking soul. Hopefully I'll be able to update on this in June  ;)

Bill Paxton

Terribly sad news about the passing of one of my favourite actors, Bill Paxton, probably best known for his iconic role as Hudson in 'Aliens '. He is going to be greatly missed, and my heart-felt sympathy goes out to his family and close friends.

I'll leave this post with a fitting video tribute I came across on YouTube of Bill Paxton as the brilliantly eloquent Hudson, combined with the hauntingly beautiful, yet sad main theme from the computer game, 'Dead Island '.

I'm not ashamed to say this, but I wept whilst watching it. Goodbye, Mr Paxton.

Technology is fantastic. When it works. It is less so when it fucks up. And this is about one of those moments.

In Memory

Copyright ©2017 Hongkiat.com
Today I found myself thinking of an old pal of mine who I lost touch with and some years ago discovered that he had passed away. Every now and then I think of Alun and the fun times we shared together and with our group of friends. Our training as squad mates in the Cardiff Swimming Club, the summer days spent at Southerndown Beach, and the crazy bike rides we'd go on every day during the summer holidays before our 2 hour training sessions at the National Sports Centre and Empire pool.

I miss him and often wonder what his life would have been like if it hadn't gone all so wrong for him and I had been a better friend and hadn't lost touch.

So, this is dedicated to those whom we have loved and have since passed over to a better place, be they family, friends and even those beloved pets who became our closest companions.

Let this be a positive meditation in memory of them, recalling everything positive, everything happy and, if you are of the mindset that has a belief in the afterlife, to that day when we shall all meet again.
