"life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans".

Hi to All. Blogging has suffered of late due to 'life'. I believe it was John Lennon who wrote that: "life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans". Well things have been busy, and blogging didn't make it to the top of the priority list, nor should it have when weighed against things. 'Nuf said.

I note there was yet another terrorist attempt at carnage in the UK. With the same connecting link, that of a particular religion and culture. Same as the last terrorist attack, and the one before that, and the one before that, and the one....
If Islam , at roughly 20% of the world population, was source to 20% of the world's terrorism, or conflict, that MAY be understandable. If it were the basis of 40% (doubly represented), that would be statistically significant. But remind me where virtually ALL terrorism originates these days. THAT is what should be significant.

Also 'Live Earth' happened. All those rock stars jetting around in private planes and as icons of conspicuous consumption getting the message to the rest of us to change our ways.
Not a little irony there (or perhaps hypocrisy?).
