Trick or Treat & all that shite...

Trick or Treat or urban terrorism?

I had the best of intentions about this Halloween. I was prepared & accepting of any small kids who. accompanied by an adult would knock at our front door at a respectable hour dressed in a garish costumes for Trick or Treat. I even brought 2 bags of mixed chocolate sweets to give them.
However I find now that the whole Trick or Treat thing is nothing more than begging by another name & an excuse for some thugs to terrorise the old & vulnerable.
We were lucky...we didn't have one caller. I had all the sweets in a large bowl on the hall table near the front door ready for any little kid who may knock the door & attempt to scare me witless.
However none called. Not 1.
then at 2120 hrs the door bell ranr. We heard the voices of some kids but what the hell!? 2120 pm & knocking on the door for Trick or Treat?/ What the bloody hell are the parents thinking of in allowing small kids out at this hour knocking at peoples doors !?!?
I didn't answer the door. Sod it I'll not be part of this nonsense..
I have to say it but its one import from the USA that we over here in the UK should not have implemented into our society.
There is an upside of all this though...We now have a bowl full of Cadbury's mixed chocolates to eat. Yum!
Keep your bloody Trick or Treat. Damn pagan worship.

Baked potatoes??

I  gave my books & my brain a rest this evening & I wish I hadn't bothered.
I spent a large part of my evening in mind numbing wastage watching gutter television.There appears to be a glut of programmes-the majority fly on the wall documentaries-with the theme of mental illness,& nearly all of these are about Obessional compulsive disorder.
Tonight the programme producers had suffers cleaning the cluttered & filthy houses of hoarders.On Thursday we have the treat of yet another fly on the wall documentary,this time the programme comes from Bedlam psychiatric hospital in London. It apparently features patients suffering from a range of mental health problems.
I'm delighted that mental health is becoming a conversation in the public domain, in fact the UK spends much less on mental health than on physical health, yet the majority of medications issued by family doctors are for mental health issues.

But: Why the baked potatoes?? I'll tell ya. During the commercial break there was a very flashy commercial that was advertising pre packed baked spuds. Apparently they cook in just 1hour!! This is absolutely incredible!! Have people become so utterly lazy &/or incompetent in their ability to cook that food manufacturers now have to sell pre prepared baked spuds?-It seems so.
We have allowed ourselves to become disempowered by these rascals who claim to be making life easier for us.
Whatever next??
