"Ampers' Rants" - Home Page

Last structural update: 15th AprilLast article update: 21st April

Thank YOU for coming to Ampers' Rants, a home of my thoughts, articles, and experiences. These are early days, but, without YOU, this website would be nothing!

First of all a dictionary definition for my eclectic journal:

Deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.synonyms: wide-ranging, wide, broad, broad-ranging, broad-based, extensive, comprehensive, encyclopedic, general, universal, varied, diverse, diversified, catholic, liberal, cross-disciplinary, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, all-embracing, non-exclusive, inclusive, indiscriminate, many-sided, multifaceted, multifarious, heterogeneous, miscellaneous, assorted More

This site is for all English speaking people {whether their first language or not) in the world. Just Finchley is a little extra aimed at people living in a specific area of London.

If you live in America - they're not spelling errors, the English spell things differently. If you live in England, I used to live in America - they aren't spelling errors, America spells things differently from Britain! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Stop Press

I've been asked to add a Last Article Update against all the sub page headings in the main Article page. This I have now done. Great idea thank you Hennie.

I now have an email address especially for Ampers' Rants, on the Contact page.

Launching Ampers' Rants Website

The official launch of this Ampers' Rants will be on the 1st May 2019, Although I have been writing blogs for many years with WordPress and many more on Blogger under various titles. In fact, when using Google's Blogger I had readers in 131 countries. Now I am writing mainly for the UK narrowing things like meeting up to just Finchley.

I will mark all article sections with a date in the format of 20190405 (if 5th April) against the short description of each article. Then I'll date all new articles as I put them in next to the title so you know when there's an article you haven't read. On the main article page, I am now adding a update date against all sub pages which have changed.

Did you arrive here from a leaflet?

I don't just deliver leaflets, but ensure that there is no post sticking out of your letterbox - so there's not that indication the house is empty.

There is an amusing anecdote you may like to see first, it explains why I decided to use this method of advertising my journal, just click on this link.

I am not politically correct

I know I can be fairly terse at times, and apologies in advance. But this is restricted to writing about politicians in the "political" category! But Hey! There is an off button! You can cancel your visit here at any time. Use it if you are unhappy, or send me an abusive message, I love and collect them! You can contact me under the "Contact" page. The good news is my political comments are restricted to the political page!

A lot of changes are being made every day until 1st May so don't forget to refresh the website whenever you visit it.

If you've enjoyed this website, please tell your friends.

There is a battle of two wolves inside us all.

One is evil; it is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, inferiority and ego.

One is good; It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth.

The wolf that survives and wins? It is the one which you feed.

My loving people

We have been persuaded by some that are careful of our safety, to take heed how we commit our selves to armed multitudes, for fear of treachery; but I assure you I do not desire to live to distrust my faithful and loving people.

Let tyrants fear. I have always so behaved myself that, under God, I have placed my chiefest strength and safeguard in the loyal hearts and good-will of my subjects; and therefore I am come amongst you, as you see, at this time, not for my recreation and disport, but being resolved, in the midst and heat of the battle, to live and die amongst you all; to lay down for my God, and for my kingdom, and my people, my honour and my blood, even in the dust.

I know I have the body of a weak, feeble woman; but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too, and think foul scorn that Parma or Spain, or any prince of Europe, should dare to invade the borders of my realm; to which rather than any dishonour shall grow by me, I myself will take up arms, I myself will be your general, judge, and rewarder of every one of your virtues in the field.

I know already, for your forwardness you have deserved rewards and crowns; and We do assure you on a word of a prince, they shall be duly paid. In the mean time, my lieutenant general shall be in my stead, than whom never prince commanded a more noble or worthy subject; not doubting but by your obedience to my general, by your concord in the camp, and your valour in the field, we shall shortly have a famous victory over these enemies of my God, of my kingdom, and of my people.
