3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I needed to console Missus after a brusque text from Daughter made it plain that she no longer needs Missus like she used to. Contact between them is to be scaled back to a weekly phone-call, and the fortnightly and Christmas visits are now "in the air". Poor Missus feels "used then dumped" but I was punching the air in my mind!  

At last this malign unwanted presence in my life is easing her grip. Though Missus feels hurt, it is actually good for Missus, as an ongoing threat to her mental health is now reduced. Plenty of TLC from myself and Son will hopefully persuade Missus to save up all her lovin' for the ones who are loving her. For this character then, abundance continues to expand!

6. TODAY'S ONELINER
The meteorologist was committed to his theory of wind currents - he was a man of strong convections.  :D

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Mock The Week: Greg Davies on ageing     

8. TRIVIA
Hinduism originated the idea that this world is actually a dream and the “real” reality is somewhere else. The Vedas, the oldest Hindu scriptures (3,000-4,000 years old) suggest that people are reincarnated back into this world, which is a dream, and it’s only after breaking the cycle of reincarnation or “waking up” from this dream world, that they’ll understand the truth and become complete.

9. ZEN WISDOM
Where there’s life, there’s hope. Hope only disappears when you decide something is hopeless.
