While I think of it, I had an absolute ball creating this website and its sister site, Dare to Dream. Google Sites make it very easy for anyone to create a clean, smart website and to be honest it is possible for anyone who wants to to create their own website relatively easily. However it occurred to me that fiddle-faddling around with this sort of things is not everyone;s cup of tea and many people don't have the time for the necessary learning phase so if you would like someone to create for you a site similar to this one then I would be happy to do it for you for a very reasonable fee. It makes a nice change from writing and would give me a chance to earn an additional shekel or shilling doing something else I enjoy. Please drop me a line at contact@steve-cook.com and let me know what you need.

Lol! Working at my computer I noticed that I could suddenly see and read things much more clearly. I thought I'd had some kind of major positive perception change until I my wife informed me that while I was out she had cleaned all the jam, smudgy finger marks etc off the screen and off my glasses as well! Sometimes I just have to laugh at myself. I might as well, because someone is sure going to . . .

Thursday 28th November.

The Rap of LIberation. Part Four |(or is it three?). Got up at five a.m. to write this as it was rattling around in my head. Truth be told, it is actually Friday's poem for the Poemathon but I'm a day or two behind and am playing catch-up once again. The poem was inspired, at least in part by an an article in this month's New Scientist in which scientists apparently have concluded after a close examination of the cosmos that they are no closer to discovering the secret of life, the universe and everything and that the universe is just sort of weird. I hate to tell them that they are ,looking for understanding in the wrong place and starting from an erroneous basic assumption, that the universe exists independent of the observer, and that road never will lead to a full understanding - but. hey, that;'s just me! Anyway, GOOD MORNING! and I hope you like the poem, which is here
