On a free day

Not much to do today so i walked round my neighbourhood and took pictures with my phone. it was a beautiful day as i also got my cheque book and debit card (p.s. u'll get a cheque book and a debit card here no matter how litte you have but the feeling's good).

And so i, erm i jumped straight to amazon.com to order two books, on is a textbook i need, one is an investment book i have wanted to buy for a while. Well here are the pictures.

And for my new found love of poems written by others, i am posting 'the creed' by steve turner at the end. Its a beautiful satire that makes fun of how we humans live...pointing out the ironies with a touch of humour.





This was on friday in school at a party for new students. These south Americans are dancing salsa






this is the house i stay on Ermine Road, Lewisham, London.






This is the street overview...Ermine road






This is a very green and beautiful park nearby



strange cos london is such a busy metropolitan city but thank God for few sparks of the beauty of creation like this just beside the chaotic urban

Creed....by Steve Turner

This is the creed I have written on behalf of all us.


We believe in Marx, freud and darwin

We believe everything is OK

as long as you don't hurt anyone,

to the best of your definition of hurt,

and to the best of your knowledge.


We believe in sex before,

during, and after marriage.

We believe in the therapy of sin.

We believe that adultery is fun.

We believe that sodomy is OK.

We believe that taboos are taboo.


We believe that everything is getting better

despite evidence to the contrary.

The evidence must be investigated

And you can prove anything with evidence.
We believe there's something in horoscopes, UFO's and bent spoons;

Jesus was a good man just like Buddha, Mohammed, and ourselves.

He was a good moral teacher although we think His good morals were bad.
We believe that all religions are basically the same

-- at least the one that we read was.

They all believe in love and goodness.

They only differ on matters of creation, sin, heaven, hell, God, and salvation.


We believe that after death comes the Nothing

Because when you ask the dead what happens they say nothing.

If death is not the end, if the dead have lied,

then it's compulsory heaven for all

excepting perhaps Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Khan.


We believe in Masters and Johnson.

What's selected is average.

What's average is normal.

What's normal is good.
We believe in total disarmament.

We believe there are direct links between warfare and bloodshed.

Americans should beat their guns into tractors and the Russians would be sure to follow.


We believe that man is essentially good.

It's only his behavior that lets him down.

This is the fault of society.

Society is the fault of conditions.

Conditions are the fault of society.


We believe that each man must find the truth that is right for him.

Reality will adapt accordingly.

The universe will readjust.

History will alter.

We believe that there is no absolute truth

excepting the truth that there is no absolute truth.
We believe in the rejection of creeds,

and the flowering of individual thought.


"Chance" .......a post-script
If chance be the Father of all flesh,

disaster is his rainbow in the sky, and when you hear
State of Emergency! Sniper Kills Ten!

Troops on Rampage! Whites go Looting! Bomb Blasts School!
It is but the sound of man worshiping his maker.
