GO! Have a baby with your Grandson, Granny?

Posted on May 1st, 2010 by Jim

I awoke to SkyNews this morning reporting how a grandmother has shocked her friends and family after revealing she is having a baby with her own grandson. Pearl Carter, 72, says she has never been happier after beginning an incestuous relationship with her 26-year-old grandchild Phil Bailey.

The pensioner, from Indiana, US, is using her pension to pay a surrogate mother so they can have a child, reports New Zealand’s New Idea magazine.

She said: “I’m not interested in anyone else’s opinion. I am in love with Phil and he’s in love with me.

“Soon I’ll be holding my son or daughter in my arms and Phil will be the proud dad.”

Maybe they just want to be ‘forever young’ ?

“I never in a million years thought at 72 I’d be ‘pregnant’ and in love with my grandson.

“I make no apologies and I believe God’s given me a second chance.”

So, I ask you  for your comments here please while I take her out to the bingo – she loves it she does! Let them get on with it or punish them for what would some see as a crime? Do tell….

You have seen Avatar, right?

Posted on January 24th, 2010 by Jim

Hands up – I was inspired although recent reports reckon that film goers have left Avatar feeling depressed as they get back to their 3D life here on earth:

GO! Segment your life….

Posted on August 4th, 2009 by Jim

Ever tried to break your life down into segments of activity?

old funny 4

I’d add playing golf, going to the gym / cinema, writing, socialising and watching  box sets (I’ve just started entourage)into other segments. It helps keep life in balance, in perspective if you will.

To succeed in life, you need three things:  a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.  ~Reba McEntire

Feel free to  add your missing segments here! Cheers.

Go! Find the Values in Life

Posted on April 27th, 2009 by Emma


We all have good days and bad, in fact, we may have good months or bad or even good years or bad.  Have you ever  stopped to think about what makes it a good day, month or year?  Maybe it is an event that happened or even the people you are with.

Dance in the fire of life

Dance in the fire of life

Sometimes it is deeper than that.  We all have values in life that we live by sometimes consciously and other times unconsciously.  If these values are lived to the full in our life, we tend to be happy and fulfilled. If something or someone is squashing our values then we tend to be unhappy.

My two top values that I cannot live without are VARIETY and FREEDOM.  In the profile questions, there are two questions that closely reflect our values; What are your passions?  What 5 words describe your personality?

Go! Visit some profile pages and get to know the members.  If you don’t have a profile, why not join today?

What are your top 5 values that are vital for your happiness? What makes you dance in the fire of life?

Death coach – The alternative life coach?

Posted on April 20th, 2009 by Jim

Ever considered a life coach?

Seriously, or do you know anyone who has?

I am one, I have one and I find the whole experience fulfilling, rewarding and finanically viable enough to keep me off the streets during my recent redundancy allowing me to crack on accordingly.


A few years ago in Dubai there was an article shunnig life coaches concluding that “You just as much out of a cup of tea with a neighbour than you do a session with a lifecoach”.

I had to agree BUT how many of us have tea with our neighbours thesedays?

Maybe you shun life coaching? Cringe at the thought or it and you’re looking for an alternative to life coaching. O’DB in Manchester sent us this LOL link to the Death Coach blog
‘I highly recommend Life Coaches, but what if you still feel like sh*t after you are all prioritized, organized, and sanitized? It’s time for a Death Coach. ‘*

Quote taken from the death coach blog.

Life is the only thing that happens to me

Posted on April 15th, 2009 by Purple13

I remember a tv sketch from the show Spitting Image (a satirical puppet show in the ’80′s).

One such sketch was Woody Allen sitting at a typewriter…. “Harvey is sitting at his typewriter when Susan, his wife enters (Mia Farrow puppet walks in) and says – ‘Harvey, are you writing another film based on our lives?’. Harvey/Woody answers – ‘Gee honey, I don’t know what else to write about. Life is the only thing that happens to me’.

Is life the only thing happening to you at the moment?

Could you live life backwards like Benjamin Button?

Posted on March 16th, 2009 by Jim

Anyone else seen all 3 hours of The Curious Case of Benjamin button? Inspired by this 1921 very short story by F Scott Fitzgerald - read the gist of it here, it only takes 5 minutes and they milked a 3 hour film out of it. It really made me think about life is what you make it but not a box of chocolates, forrest.

Both book & film are about a man who starts aging backwards with bizarre consequences, ending up with the same result whichever way we GO! “My Body Is a Cage” insists Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button, featured in the theatrical trailer together with Cate Blanchett & Julia Ormond who pulled in thirteen Academy award nominations:

I went to see this ‘life is too short’ film last week and have to confess I cried – couldn’t find a parking space for the life of me. When was the time you saw a film that moved you to tears? Backwards or forwards, do tell and feel free to share clips from it here in comments.

All you need to do is copy the youtube link, paste it in comments here and add a v after http. Thanks! Time for me to play out now, must GO! Share films that moved you right here……

Chief Flower Smeller – My reason to be!

Posted on February 9th, 2009 by Jim

Hi from Dubai folks. Recently redundant Jim here proudly presenting to you my reason to be:

It’s all about the title, right? I’m not sure exactly how, where or why money will come into all this to earn a living but GO! Smell the flowers is my reason to be. Maybe naked flower promotions here in Dubai could be the place to start or would that land me in trouble?

“Do what you love and the money will follow” a drunk said to me in a bar once, before toppling over taking a tray of drinks with him. Well I’m giving it a GO! and after a knee jerk reaction of updating my C.V and trying to get another job I’ve decided I’d like to face up to the global recession here in Dubai by talking and writing about it. Time is conspiring against us all not to face up to the reality of economic change – have you seen the price of bread lately?

Should be an interesting ride and I’m lucky to have the moral support of the GSTF community here to help inspire countless people all over the world. Maybe my new circumstances will give me a bit more of this:

Comments welcomed and THANK YOU for your support. Let’s give it a GO!

Go! Live in the Moment!

Posted on December 9th, 2008 by Melindaville

Greetings from Boston, Massachusetts!

Early in my recovery, I found myself trapped by either living in the pain of my past—or in the fear of the future.  Living in the present allows us to Go! Smell the Flowers! as well as to simply enjoy the great pleasure of being alive.

I have found that if our hearts remain open, we often meet people along our journey who help to teach us the lessons we need.  I have learned some major lessons in life from some unexpected sources!

One lesson happened early in my recovery from heroin addiction, when I was about six months clean.  I had just returned to Bozeman, Montana, where I had begun attending classes at the University.    To support myself, I found a job driving a taxi, which I had experience doing earlier in my life when I was a cabbie in New York City…..

Go see if Destiny’s Calling

Posted on December 5th, 2008 by A/C

I don’t tend to get caught up in Television Programs, well not much anyways, I have a few which I watch, Bones, Heroes, Ghost Whisper Doctor Who, The Bill and who can miss Top Gear, but after a while it’s the same old same old with so many, excluding Dr Who and Top Gear (Clarkson favourite son of Lorry Drivers everywhere).  You know what I mean, they keep making them, mostly because we still watch even though the story has gotten rather tired, and they should have been retired last season.

Well a new Program hit my TV screen last night Eli Stone. I had seen the Ads for it, it looked like my kind of show, so I watched and although this is not a review, I must say, I was impressed.
One part of the Pilot Episode really got me, although the whole program I found rather inspirational in my sideways view of the world,  this just grabbed me.

Watch this short clip, towards the end is the part, my favourite slice.

“You might not believe in some guy turning water into wine, but that doesn’t mean you don’t believe in God. You believe in right and wrong. You believe in justice, in fairness… You believe in love. All those things, they’re God, Eli.”

‘Some People have a greater calling in Life! You just have to know it when you hear it.’

Some of us never know what we could be or even what we want to be.  Life takes hold and drags us along, before we know it we reach the point we think is that of no return. A safe comfort zone, which we niether love nor hate, we have grown to fit it or it to fit us, either way it is home and we know it well.

Others it seems are drawn to something, to reach out to some invisible thread on lifes conveyor belt, they take hold and their lives take on a whole new meaning for better or worse they are drawn to it, an adventure.

Destiny, Fate, or Wishful Thinking, which ever it is the results are all around us.
Just when we think we know what we want, what we need, where our lives are heading, just when we have it all planned out, life decided it has other plans for us.

Would you know destiny, your true calling if you saw it, if jumped up and bit you?

Would grab a hold with both hands and hold for the ride of your life?

Or would you turn away continue on your chosen path?

The choice is always ours, which would you choose?
