Thanks for popping in. Enjoy your Sunday. Tatty byes. ilona
Good morning. I wasn't going to post today, but I will now I have received this comment. It came in at about 3am this morning, so that tells me it is possibly from the other side of the world. This is just one of many that land here, mostly I delete them, occasionally I publish one just to illustrate the dark side of blogging.
The tone of the comment is important, how it is written is important, the language used is important. Some of them are blunt to the point of abuse. This one I show here is sarcasm personified. Someone who thinks they have a better understanding of me, than me.
You have to feel sorry for them. I am at the top of my game, they are at the bottom trying to claw their way back up. The only way they know how is to knock other people back down to their level. Well it's not happening here. There will be no tears from me, I will not be taking my blog down.
I've had enough knockbacks in my life to know that if you show your weaknesses they come back over and over again, and go for the jugular. I have never known this level of bitterness in people before, it is soaring to new heights. There is something strange going on.
Enjoy your weekend. I think it's going to be rainy here, not a good prospect but it is what it is. I did a late shop last night at Aldi so I have some delicious food in the fridge. Plenty of vegetables and some treats. The car is filled up with petrol so if there is a sunny spell I am ready to go out.
Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon. If any bullies comment on this, on yer bike sunshine. In the words of Catherine Tate's character, Lauren, Am I bovvered? I ain't bovvered.

I believe it was Budget Day today. I missed that. Don't know what was said. Potatoes, Brussel sprouts, carrots, and broccoli for dinner tonight.
Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip.
In January 2022 the Government are launching a new App to help people make positive changes to their diet and physical activity. A pilot will see users wear wrist-worn devices that can generate personalised health recommendations such as increasing their step count, eating more fruit and vegetables, and decreasing portion size.
Users will collect points for their healthy behaviours, which will unlock rewards, which could include gym passes, clothes or food vouchers and discounts for shops, cinema or theme park tickets.
Check out the rest of it on the Government web site. Be ready for it so you know what's coming. This is a Social Credit system being brought in. This is about training people like you would with a dog, with treats.
Following a competitive tender process, HeadUp has been chosen to deliver the new scheme, with £3 million also coming from the Department of Health and Social Care to provide incentives.
Check out the HeadUp web site. They are a data science company that applies itself to people's health. Quote...We have all sorts of thoughts about health care, how it should look, how it should feel, how it should taste. We are not here to fall in line with the status quo, we're here to re-engineer.'
Think about the word re-engineer, it is important.
Thank you to Hugo Talks. You can find his video on this here.
I will not be getting a smart phone, I will not be getting an app, I will continue to monitor my own health. Now off for a walk. Catch ya later. Toodle pip. ilona

Had to snap this one. Geese lounging on the grass, and a man with a stick. He stood very still as I walked past him. Ha ha.
