    The poor man sat at the side of the street.  Begging.  Just like every other day.  He had lost count of how long he had been doing this for.    Life wasn’t about days, weeks and months any more.  He no longer knew his birthday.  Or what age he was. The street started to fill.  People were getting excited.   It seemed […]

    I was at an unusual celebration recently, in the company of a rare breed – long distance swimmers!   Ion Lazarenco was celebrating the completion of two amazing feats.  In October he entered the water in California and swam to Catalina Island, 32km away. It took him 12 hours 1 minute.  Then within weeks he was in Hawaii, swimming from Molokai […]

    Almost everything you buy these days carries a warning label. And some of them are pretty funny.  A high speed spin washer carries the warning DO NOT PUT ANY PERSON IN THIS WASHER.  The Apple website once warned people NOT TO EAT THE IPOD SHUFFLE. One scooter carries the manufacturer’s warning, ‘THIS PRODUCT MOVES WHEN USED’. And of course the supermarket label […]

    When I was in primary school we sometimes played ‘Chasing’ during PE Class. It was a simple game where you had to run and catch your friends, but it was much harder than it looked.  I’d charge at a group of my classmates and they would scatter, and though I got close to one or two of them, I’d end […]

    Have you ever seen a space rocket being launched?  Well, you’ll have seen that not everything that leaves the ground gets into space.  Different sections fall away so that a small piece at the top of the rocket makes it all the way into orbit. It wouldn’t make sense for the astronauts at the top of that rocket to spend […]

The pressure was getting to him.  Then he had a flash of inspiration and he knew what he should write – advice for his son’s adult life, gleaned from a father’s own […]

    The young soldiers stood in line on the first day of Boot Camp. The drill sergeant asked them a question. Soldiers” he roared “what are you gonna do when you’re in the middle of a battle facing trained soldiers who want to kill you?” A young cadet replied “I’ll fight like a man, Sir!” “Oh no you won’t” said the […]
