3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Ultimately, Son will want his amp back, and having to hold the microphone whilst referring to a script is mildly awkward, so I will ultimately invest in headsets and my own sound mixer, now I've seen how good it is!
This morning I got propositioned by an online "private performer" - I was most amused! Being 52 and with erectile dysfunction, this was not a difficult distraction to turn down. All credit to the young lady concerned for staying polite after my polite rejection.
Not ending so politely is a rash of cold-calling by chuggers. I hate these predatory low-lifes with a passion! Hiding behind working for a charity, they exploit the weak and vulnerable for a commission. Having now had a third call by three different charities, it's clearly the same marketing company they've all commissioned. Time to go on the offensive! I will be reporting them as well as never supporting that charity again ever and sending the chugger away in no doubt what I think of chuggers!
Amused, Higher Consciousness looks on...

9. ZEN WISDOM
How can you possibly ever know how far or fast you can go if you’ve never run all-out? To give up even before you’ve tried is actually arrogance—an affront to the wondrous power of life within you and disrespectful to yourself.
