    **Ive studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    **Hate makes you impotent, Love makes you crazy. Somewhere in the middle you can survive.**

    Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.

    You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!

    Depends. I enjoy company, but feel perfectly fine on my own (and with my faithful hound).

    Like you Geoff I love the company of others but at the end of the day I can leave them and be alone at home and I love it to be honest

    The only thing I miss is a 'hound' but I cannot really have a doggie where I am now as I don't have a garden

    I see Colin on a daily basis which is nice

    We used to live together which was also nice but I am quite happy living alone these days, I have so much freedom and that's important to me

    I'll probably have a touch of the winter blues again and not bother to get involved in much until about April, so being alone makes no odds really.

    What I am looking forward to, is not having to have anything to do with Christmas this year! Whoopee!!

    Hark the Bah humbugs!

    Well, Del and I both ABSOLUTELY ADORE Christmas, and also have no problem with the dark winter months. You just get your house nice and warm and cosy, and hibernate.

    For us, one of life's pleasures is chilling out at night in the lounge of our lovely quaint little lodge house, candles lit and house decorated all Chrismassy, wood burner roaring away, a glass of something nice to drink in our hands, and some quality choons playing!

    Christmas aside, doing that in the spring isn't the same, as the vibe isn't right. You need the weather outside to be cold and horrible, so that you feel nice and cosy and wrapped up indoors
