Why Copy ?

Why copy  ? … Why do people these days have to copy everything they see  ? Why do they have to copy everything they do ?  Have you noticed that when a new thing , for example is advertised   people just run to get it  and then soon after that  you see a copy , a copy that is different by just a little bit so as not to be against the copyright laws . Then there will be a new fashion accessory  or a new jewelry  design  , or maybe a new style in cars or a new type of house , or something , anything it does not really matter what it takes no time at all seemingly for a copy  to appear  , usually a  little bit cheaper  than the original  item was at the start . Have seen this sort of thing so often it makes me wonder   how people get the copies  done so quick    have they got spies or something  ?

Why copy  ? Why do they feel the need to copy  and not make their own ? Really  makes me wonder if original ideas are getting extinct  because there are just so many copies of so many things  and the speed at which the copies appear is amazing , love to know how the companies that do these copies get them out so quick . Also makes me wonder why ? Can’t they do anything for themselves  anymore or is it just too much trouble to try and think for themselves ?  The people who come up with the original ideas must be very  upset  to see their invention being copied and then sold at a much cheaper price , they have put so much time , effort , money into it , finally get it out there only to have at about what seems like 5 mins. later  there is a copy .

Why copy ? I know why just take a  look at the fashion ,make up , jewelry, shoes , bags, etc you get the idea they make so much money out of copies that they now have no scruples  at all and run ff copies as soon as they can . Personally I have seen so many dresses for example  that all look the same but for maybe 1 or 2 things  just enough differences  so it cannot be called a copy and not breach the copyright act . Makes you wonder really how many other things that we buy are copies doesn’t it ? Thinking that a lot of things that are copies are so well done that you the shopper cannot tell without expert help , copies have not got the same return value as originals so anyone making a copy  has to make it just right or get caught out, that does happen but not enough to stop the copies unfortunately so it goes on.

Why copy ? Why do people see someone  wearing something and right away think I must have that ,I must have that exact thing  ? When you go out you see so many people wearing the same things  , if you just walk and look you can see so many types of the same thing  be it clothing or shoes or carry bags or jewelry , I notice it time and again . What makes people act like sheep and just flock to things like  this just because someone else has it  ? Have people lost the ability as well to be original , or is it just sheer laziness or is it that people now just don’t have the time anymore  in this hectic lifestyle we now have ? To me I would rather have something just because  I need it  not because everyone  else has them , need rather that copy is the only reason I get anything .

Why copy ? This need as it seems to be to copy almost everything that others do is amazing , it almost seems like it has become part of people’s  DNA  now , see something , must have it , no originality  no thinking for themselves anymore , just follow the crowd , copy what they do stay in the flock , I just find it amazing. I am guessing that is why even in the armies all over the world  they all have basically the same sort of weapons  there really is not a lot of difference  but  there also maybe 1 or 2 others we have not seen yet but given time we will the way the world is heading now , lots of sheep doing what they are told . Why copy  ? To get the best we can for ourselves without having to think for ourselves  , that is altogether too much work now it seems . We really need to start learning to think for ourselves sooner rather than later  if we do not want all these copies  to rule us , we need to be ourselves not just sheep happy to copy .

 

Getting out of bed in the morning ruins my whole day….

Get your mind out of the gutter. It’s blocking my view….

I am so grumpy I am not even talking to myself…!😬😬😬😬😬

Medication

Medication  I am guessing now that there are very few people  who are not on some sort of medication , and like it or not most of us need some at some point in their lives , seems there is always a need  for medication  for something or other we can’t seem to get away from it . Medication is for the most  part good for us and it offers relief for many problems  , let us face it there are a lot  of people who would not even be alive today without good medication . Many lives also are made a lot better for having a way to relieve symptoms of things that maybe cannot be healed as they may well be hereditary  so there is no way other than medication to make their lives a lot easier . Medication  on the whole then is a very good thing and there are more and more being  made to help more and more people  they are always researching always looking for cures for things like cancer  etc.  and that is a good thing they are dedicated people only wanting to help.

Medication then is mostly a very good thing , but my beef is with the way it is marketed , yes this is a bit of a rant but I think it needs saying , they need to be made to put all the things on the labels  that can cause side effects ,  and  I mean all of them not just the ones they think won’t be too hard and stop people from buying them. The reason I say this is because  I recently tried yet 1 more thing to try and ease my pain  and maybe help with the fluid retention , as I know  I am allergic to some things  I  have become an avid label reader  so when I got these you can bet I thought they were safe for me . Imagine my shock when I started to feel a bit off  and the only thing that was different was the new pills  I had bought  from the chemist . I had not changed anything else in my diet or anything so it was the only thing different .

So I did what I always do and   had another read to be sure  I had not missed anything on the label , confirmed that I had not and then thought ok now I do further research  to see what was not on the label. My 1st horror was in finding out that had  I kept taking them I might well have gone blind as they affect eye pressure , and as  I have glaucoma this was devastating  this was just but the 1st shock , next 1 was that it could cause heart attack , or stroke or if I was diabetic it could be a disaster , now you can see why I was so angry any 1 or all of those things are terrible on their own but to not even  mention  them on the label to me is  just wrong , and it was only my checking it out properly  because I felt a bit off that led me to this discovery and of course stopping the pills immediately. Who knows just what would have happened to me had  I just kept on with them thinking it would be ok it was just my body getting used to them .

Marketing today is so in your face , so ” you must have these ”  that most people just accept it and go get them , and because life today is so fast and furious  we just have not got the time to be checking every little thing . Just a cursory  glance at a label and off we go not time for anything more . Time after time this proves to be true so we get lulled into a false sense of security and just go to a chemist and get pills  and take them . We get so used  the advertising  we just believe it and use them , they keep on telling us how good the pills are and how much we need them . What really, really needs to happen is that all medication has to be labelled correctly  so things like  being caught out  with pills you should not be taking cannot happen again , someone needs to fix this before more people get caught out and maybe die or worse .

Medication ..rant over but I think it all needed to be said if only to make more people aware that they really need to read labels and do more research so they do not have any trouble . I was lucky this time  as I always check  and it did not take me long to realise  that I had to stop them and check up on them . Thankfully all is well now but it will be a long time before  I try any more pills that is for sure 100% .

I ate my salad without dressing because I didn’t have time to put on clothes…

 

Have you tried the new vodka diet. I’ve lost three days already…

 

I have a new rule: No one is allowed to talk to me for 24 hours after I wake up….

You Can Never Really Know

You can never really know how the other half lives unless you go there and see for yourself, if you live in a place for a long time  or even a short time for that matter  you get to know how that place works and what  it looks like . You have the look and the nature of that place and its people  it gets stuck in your mind  and you are so very sure almost 100%  that you will always know it even if you leave it for a long time or a little  while . When we do decide to leave this place  even for a little while  you go just knowing in your mind that nothing will change no matter how long or short a time  you are away , so sure are you that you do not even consider taking any photos or anything to remind you of what it all looks like  and how it all sounds  so then what happens next ?

What happens next is when you do come back  from where else you  have been  you find that so much has changed you are in amazement  as to what happened , the longer you have been away the  more things have changed  and now you see  what you should have done before you left to keep those memories alive . I have blogged about this before  in a blog  I called” Who am I where am I ?”  So like me when I came back from overseas   you look at the place you left and really expected  to be the same as you left it and stand in wonder  about what happened  and why  ? Little things and big things  have changed , the way people now treat you ,the way businesses  do their business  now, even the  TV you used to watch , almost everything is now changed    and you are left wondering.

You can never really know  how much things will change but  that does not mean we have to like it as a lot  of the changes that happen are not  good , just look at how the violence  has gotten out of control now , and how little people even give a damn, as long as they have what they want that is all that matters. While you were away there could have been an earthquake or floods or fire or famine  or anything to make all those changes  or maybe just something simple  like a store  closing down or being sold  or something similar can change the whole place making it so different you you do wish you had taken photos before you left.

You can never really know about people either  what changes happen in them  while you were away ,they too change even if they don’t want to , things happen to make them change and when they do their whole attitude to you and everyone else will change , we cannot  stay the same when things change so much in us and around us . People who were carefree and happy and  wanting to help suddenly become quiet and keep to themselves , the outgoing part of them has been subdued  and they are only a touch of the people they once were . Changes  in situations means changes  in people  and no matter how much we want to stay the same we do not have much choice if the changes are bad enough or good enough  either way will cause changes.

Saying all this you have to realise that change is inevitable  but how we handle it is what is important , how you deal with what life throws at you  is what either makes you stronger or you let it get to you . Making you stronger is what we need to try and do and not let the negative  part of it get to you , this part is not easy , trust me it is hard but it can be done if you try hard enough . Changing your whole life and where you live and how you do things can be very , very hard  but again you can do it if you care enough  about yourself and your husband  and you both pull together . Takes all sorts of courage and all the hope you can muster but again it is possible .

You can never know either about how much even the government of the country will change while you were away , things that were against the law when you  left now are allowed and that can not always be good . Example is when you leave it was against the law to let children under the age of 15 into and pubs  or clubs , or any place  that had alcohol or gaming machines , now you can barely find a place  to have a quiet night out because they all allow young children in and the parents  do not seem to care  one bit about the noise they make . That law of not letting them in was great you could always have a nice quiet night out with your husband anytime you wanted , now it is hopeless most of the time. One can only hope that one day someone will see  this and make a few places to go to that you can have a nice quiet dinner in and enjoy it , and not have to either give up or leave early .

You can never know about anything really  you just have to gird  your loins and as they say in the classics ” pull up your big girls pants ”  and get on with life and do your best  to do the right thing by yourself and others . Maybe it is the hardest thing you will ever have to do but you do have the strength in you to do it , to make it happen . There are just so many things  you can never really know about  it would take forever to note them all down  so let’s not worry about them and take each day one at a time and do the very best we can to make it better for us and those around us , that is what I plan to do anyway.

My husband called me lazy the other day.I was so annoyed I almost responded….

🤔…. I am suspicious that I am up to something I don’t want myself to know about.

You Do Get Used To It

You do get used to it you know , what you may ask ? You do get used to having your own pest , lol, for pest see husband lol, sorry dear  but you asked for this one . There are and still will be  many , many times when  I just want to kick you right up the bum , but having said that you should be very happy that I am short and have a bad back so I can’t actually do it no matter how much I want to , so you are mostly safe from actual physical  damage lol aint  you a lucky man ? You know as well as  I do how many times this happens  so you know  I  am telling the truth  so wotchit you lol. So where exactly do I start with all this explaining how you can and do get used to it huh ? lol…

You do get used to having to tell your pet pest , lol now I like that a pet pest lol nice  I will use that again , anyway you do get used to telling your pet pest some things over and over again before they actually seem to hear and if you are lucky understand what you said. You also get used to forgiving them when time after time (wasn’t that a song once lol ? ) they get  same thing wrong  and they still do it wrong , they still put some things the wrong way round or do them the wrong way , or maybe that should be not the way you do it , and that makes you mad and wonder why you bother ? You do get used to giving up on trying to get them to do some things and end up doing it yourself  just to get it done  sheeesh  men hey  ? lol Still wonder if there ever comes a time  when they actually do things the way you want them to or if it is just a male thing , if it is then there is no hope of that ever happening lol dam it ….

You do get used to having to tell them things more than once , even though  it drives you nuts that you have to repeat things over and over before they get it , but the most important thing is that they do eventually  get it …yay …lol ..so take a deep breath , and keep repeating till it finally sinks in to them then you start  on something else lol . You get used  to having to do somethings twice or three times  but you realise it will be like this when you marry them so if you do not like repeating yourself over and over again ladies then please do not marry lol . You get used to having to cook all the time and do the washing etc more than you ever used to but that too is what you agree to when you marry so it’s all good , sometimes you get lucky ( as  I did  ) and get a man that loves to cook so will do some of it too  even if you still have to do all the dishes lol , oh well can’t have everything now can we ?

You get used to also having someone share your life 24/7 , someone who loves you , someone who will do anything for you and tells you all the time how much he loves you and just loves all the same things you do . You get used to loving going to all the same places and ,and all the same sports , and just about everything else you love . You get used to the love and comfort  you get from them too and them always being there when you need them , you get used to them helping you when you need it , yes sometimes  they are a pest and won’t help but if you really  need the help they are there to help. Let’s face it that is why you married them in the first place , you knew you would always be there for each other or you would not have married . AmI Right ?? lol sorry dear ..sorry not sorry lol .

You get use to so many different things when you get married but it is better to have your own pet pest lol love that term than to go through life alone , well I think so anyway . So far I have not seen a single thing to make me feel any different and hope  I never will , love my pet pest lol  and we have a lot of fun  and that to me is how it should be.

A friend in need is a pest indeed……. lol see?

 

My husband keeps bugging me about dinner even after I told him I already ate…

 

Sorry fro all teh typos. Whne it comse to texting, I’m all thumbs.

Did You See ?

Did you see ? …. Did you see when that lovely little baby was born ? The look of love on the parents face?  Did you see ? ..When that old person who needed help actually got it when they needed it  ? ..Did you see?.. when that Paramedic  saved that child’s life ? ..Did you see?.. when that doctor and that nurse stayed up all night to save someone’s life ? ..Did you see ?..when those firefighter’s  saved that child from the blaze , then put out the fire that was deliberately lit? …Did you see ?..all those police  officers put themselves in danger  to stop rioting  idiots  from doing any more damage than  possible ?  Did you see ? All those soldiers  who went to the war front to fight  to save you and everything you have  and everything you will need or want ? Did you see ?.. all those shopkeepers  and sales people who work long hours to make sure that all the things that you need to get or do are there for you ? Did you see any or all of any of these things ?

Did you see ?… No you did not because either you were working hard  yourself  or you were doing something that could put yourself or others in danger . Did you see ? ..When  that person who so very sure that they could talk on the phone and drive at the same time  got killed by a truck that they drove under when it slammed on the brakes because someone stopped suddenly in front of them  ? Did you see?..  when ..Those supposedly  peaceful refugees  rioted and killed people and burned  so many buildings down ? ..Did you see  ?… When ..The mechanic  stayed up half the night to fix your car as you really needed it to be going the next day  or you would be in trouble? Did you see ?..those countless delivery driver’s  that work almost 24/7  and have not a lot of time at home with family  as their jobs are to make sure  we have all we want and need  right when we need them ?.. Did you see ?… All those waiters and waitresses  that work long hours in all sorts of places so you can go out and have a fun night out   without having to cook, do dishes or anything else of the boring things that go to making a good meal?..

Did you see ?… No  most likely you did not see very much of this and you did not for many reasons , some of them being life gets in the way , also the things you see are limited by the governments  , as they do not want you to see a lot of things in case you get upset and vote them out , where would they be then ? Out of the  gravy train is where that is why they so strictly control what you do and do not see on social media . Did you see?… No you did not because with life , and jobs these days are so fast and you just have to keep rushing  and the more it keeps rushing the less you actually see around you and that is the reason you did not see a lot of things , when you stop and think about how much you did not see you will be as shocked as I was when I thought about it …

Did you see?.. No because you have become a” Millennial ” which means that everything you do or see has to be in or on the internet , because your head is so buried in this so called technology that you cannot even pull your head out  of your phone  or your computer or tablet or whatever you have long enough to see the world around you and what is going on in it . Bother to extract the head from the phone etc. and you just might actually see the world as it is not as you think it is . Did you see?.. Anyone who is walking around these days without their head in the phone  ? Nope me neither well not many  as  I have said before it is now a plague that this world has that everyone embraces  so they do not want to see reality  now . Did you see? .. any of these or all the other things that shape the world today  ? Did you see?.. that so few  now even care now about how things are going , much less want to try and stop some of the evil that goes on everyday ?

Did you see? …no you did not because too many people now just want to sit back , do what they want a, and wait for others to fix the mess , a mess they may not have made but  sure could be cleaned up quicker if there were more people who actually cared. Did you see any  so called churches  have prayer meetings and prayer vigils  to try and help people in distress? Did you see any of these so called churches try to help anyone  without expecting them to pay for it  ? No you didn’t because they as well as every other  so called church cares more about pomp  and ceremony and shows with loud  music and lights rather than the people they are supposed to help . Did you see? …no because there is nothing left to see with them anymore they have evolved into  money making industries  , that is why you  did not see … We need people to see more and do more even if it is just to pray , remember prayer helps the many that you cannot help by yourself .

I’ve taken up running again… Running out of money, running out of time & running out of patience..😜.

 

I woke up with a headache this morning but he made me a coffee so now I feel better.

Write It Down Part Deux

Write it down part deux…There just has to be a part deux  as when I did the first part I didn’t have time or room enough  to add more to  the blog at that time so now here is the rest of it  . Having just one part  of something like this  is just wrong  , as  there is way to it than just one part  as  I am going to now fix right up  by doing the rest , so hang on and let’s go , lol , sounds good doesn’t it  ? Anyway if you stop right  here and think for a min or two..take your time ..lol you will realise the bits that got missed out last time and will be saying to yourself , well it’s about time you got round to fixing this ! Agreed so here we are again to fix this right up  , ok a bit late  but better late than never , or so they say .

Write it down part deux …what I didn’t do before was also to say  , then you must take the list with you !! lol No use whatever to write it down  if then , when you get to where you are going you don’t have the list with you !! Sheeesh how can you get what is on that list or any list if you don’t have the dam list with you ? So attaching  this bit to the first bit then you first must write it down , second step then is to take the dam list with you  so you do not forget any of it , so write it down, put list in pocket , step two in making the writing it down bit work the way  it is meant to work. Like with anything in life if you want it work  you have to do it right , anything less just will not work , so remember that from here on in ok ? lol

Write it down part deux  if you think that was all you are wrong ! There is one more thing you have to add to the list  , what use is it to write it down , take the list with you  and then while shopping forget to read the dam thing ?! lol You would be surprised how many times people  do this they do part one and two but then forget about part three  and it is not until they get home and check that list the see one or two things they forgot ! lol Even after the careful writing it down , taking it with them they then forget to read it  and then they get so upset  at themselves when they find out what they have done . Frustrating as it is somehow we still seem to do this time after time  when will we remember that we must do three things rather than one to get the very best results ? Maybe one day  we will wake up but lol after all this time and seeing how many still do it  I really  doubt that it will happen any time soon , we are such people of habit  that we just do things over and over again until one day we wake up and get it  right.

So to sum it up in a way we can all relate to  first , write it down, then take list with you , three make sure you read the list before you go home , lol, that way you have actually a really good chance to get all the things you went out for  and that has got to be a good thing lol. Wonder right now how long it will take  for us to get it into our thick skulls  that in some things we need to do more than one thing to achieve our goals ? Your guess is as good as mine on this but all I can say is good luck with it , I will most likely  be as bad as everyone else as I did the forget to read it just the other day  sheeesh lol , so I am just as hopeless at this as everyone else , am going to try again today to get the things I forgot yesterday lol wish me luck I might need it  …

I have the ability to find objects just before people lose them. Unfortunately, the police call it theft…

I always advise people never to give advice…

 

I’m allergic to tickles. I break out in giggles…..

Everything Changes ..Everything Stays The Same

Everything changes ..everything stays the same …. Have you ever noticed that no matter how  much things change around us  fundamentally  things stay the same ? When for instance a car changes models  it does what it calls an upgrade but when you get down to the bare bones of it the car is still the same , it still does the same things all they have done is change the way it looks . The  car still drives and does all the things a car does but now it costs a lot more because they have said it is better , but is it really ? Maybe in a few things it is different but it is still fundamentally  the same car . When people  decide to change , they might change the way they look , the way they dress, the way they do things but if you look right inside you will most likely see the  same person just more disguised  than they were before .

Governments , they change   the people in them all the time , also they  may get elected and be in power , then they get voted out and one of the other parties  come into power , then things all change , or do they really ? Liberal , Labour, Greens , whoever, on the surface they all look different but look closely and you will find that they all have the same basic plans , and mostly those plans mean  ripping the people off  and lining their own pockets  and you cannot tell me that there is a single political party these days who do not do the exact same thing . They  showcase all sorts of what they call differences  but once in power they all resort to doing the same things. Political parties these days  have all seemed to merge  there really is not much difference between  they are all now just self serving and greedy and it seems that will not change anytime soon.

Shopping  now this is another  bone of contention most shops these days make out that they and they alone have the best things  and once in a while they have a nice sale or something , but mostly all of them are the same , to get you into their shops and get you spending your hard earned money , but once again all are basically the same and they will do whatever it takes to get you in . Grocery shops are the best at this  they have specials yes but they also have ways of getting those specials in and sometimes they go all out to get you spending . The ones not having  a sale  of a specific  item or three  will then find something  else to put on sale ,or then undercut the same products to try and get you into their shops . When they have these grocery wars as they call it we the shoppers can do very well  , and be able to get things at a really nice price. Underneath it all though they are all basically the same with the object being to get us through the door  even though they say they are different they are not they are all the same using the same tactics as each other .

Clothing now there is a whole new battle ground some of the stunts that clothing  shops pull are amazing , anything to get you in just like all other shops . They will do more than most to get you in , but to be honest clothing shopping is the one thing I hate more than anything  as when you go looking at clothes it takes hours and hours to get done as the shops these days do not make it easy to get what you want . Remember though ..lol ..do not take your husband underwear shopping with you  it can get messy lol trust me on this , been there done that . Electrical shopping too can be a nightmare as you try to decide what TV, what washing machine , what stove , whatever to buy there are just so many now , but like everything no matter what they tell you about how many differences there are in the appliances  they really are all basically the same and do the same thing , the only differences is in the prices or the warranty that goes with them , so you really have to check them out before you buy to get the best deal.

Social  media now  too , there again is a whole world of fun and games , as no matter what way you decide to go  there is always another app that says I am the best but when you get down to it  they are not really much different to others at all . Like so many other  things we are told it gets back to that all the so called changes  and there might be one or two the thing is still basically the same . Changes are all good if they really do change things and people , but just making such small changes to try and  fool people well no that is not good, not good at all. So though it seems that everything has changed , when it gets right down to it nothing changes and  we all get taken in if we do not use our brains and just let them get away with it  makes me wonder why are we all such sheep ? why do we let them all get away with this all the time ?

Wow, I haven’t seen you since the last time I saw you…

 

I used to be poor. Then I bought a dictionary, and now I’m impecunious….

‘Bathtub’ spelled backwards is still ‘bathtub’. It’s not, but for a second there, you believed me didn’t you….
