Speech Fee for hillary is Down 90%

All her antics are coming home to roost, her speaking fee which use to be in the $250,000 or more range now are in the $25,000 range. In my opinion, that is too high. In all honesty, if you were forced to listen to her would you pay?

She recently was offered $25,000 from Rutgers. The event will be hosted by the Rutgers Eagleton Institute of Politics and it is sold out.

It is unfathomable how ignorant people are. With all the news on her criminal acts coming to light, how can people support her. I understand how mistakes and moral faux pas can be overlooked but at some point a line should be drawn.

Some may say I’m jumping to conclusions, but how much evidence is necessary to draw a conclusion. I apologize for the rant but we are being proved to be a depraved populous. I’m not just addressing the US but all the countries of the world. Please educate yourself on events taking place worldwide.

A highlight is Venezuela, North Korea, Greece, Canada and the USA. All countries are experiencing economic strife but more importantly is moral strife. IMO we have lost the moral war and we are facing the consequences. Even for those of you whom are not religious, fair is always fair. What has been taking place worldwide is not fair.

Metal Detecting and Treasure Hunting – I’m a Physical History Hunter –

Metal Detecting – I’m a Physical History Hunter –

U5drkjLv1GaQT16hJPoVapM7YFyvrhu_1680x8400.jpg

This is my favourite little toy car that I’ve found – Circa 1930’s.


Early in 2014 I found myself in a really dark depressed place after unfortunately, having a major breakdown. There were many triggers and reasons for this and I’d just been suppressing them all until they finally erupted into a volcanic collection of anxieties, self doubts and fear.


So the story continues, and I find myself sitting on my beloved safety net (the sofa) and settling down to this new programme on BBC4 called, ‘Detectorists’. It was amazing! I didn’t really know the first thing about this geeky, nerdy hobby and had only ever seen some old geezers walking across farmland, head down swinging a strange looking stick that resembled some kind of giant sink plunger.
And there I was, hooked, imagining the treasure that could be lost in the mud and wondering ‘I need to get me one of these things and head out Treasure Hunting’
So I did. I logged onto ‘everyone’s’ favourite place for bargains – EBay, and bought my first proper metal detector! Secondhand, well used but a total bargain at £200! I was so excited, I couldn’t wait for the postman to deliver my new Tesoro Cortes treasure wand and pin-pointer.

I continued to indulge myself in Detectorists and set about Google to find out more. There were certain laws and regulations that I needed to abide by, and, with my job I cannot risk any kind of legalities etc. I bought very own NCMD – National Council For Metal Detecting licence for £8 and actually left the house! I’d not been out for weeks and I was finally feeling like I had some motivation. How weird? something that was totally foreign to me had got me excited for the fist time in months, got me out of the house and knocking on local landowners doors. The second farm I visited granted me indefinite permission to go digging on his 100 acres of land, as long as I made sure to fill all holes after I’d dug and, bought him a bottle of single malt Whiskey now and then. ‘It’s a deal’ I said excitingly and trundled off home.
My new detector arrived a few days later and the rest they say, is history! literally, history.


My first finds from the back garden! Now I was really hooked!


Here’s some information about the show ‘Detectorists’ if you fancy checking it out. You can also find it on good old YouTube too.


Detectorists is an absolute gem of TV treasure. This program first aired back in 2014 much to the delight of Metal Detectorists far and wide. For a while it seemed like there was never going to be a show that brilliantly depicts our much loved, and very popular hobby.Both stars Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones are very well known actors who have starred in some huge blockbusters – Pirates Of The Caribbean (Crook) and The Hunger Games (Jones) are usually busy on other more glamorous Hollywood projects. So, especially as it’s written and directed by Crook I’m overjoyed they’ve made time for another series. Enjoy it people, as sadly this is due to be the last.

I try to get out digging and physical history hunting whenever I can. I’ve met loads of like minded and really passionate history hunters since starting this wonderful hobby, and also gained a huge bank of historical knowledge about the people that once graced these shores.



One of my first military finds was this Royal Marine Labour Corps badge.

FB_IMG_13914476322046175-1.jpg

I researched this for days, and had found myself in a rather unusual happier place? looking for clues of what it might be? I’m not really into wars and fighting being a pacifist but, I was really intrigued to what it could be…and Hey Presto! I found this info!


Here’s some really interesting finds from the past few years, and some are even recorded with the Portable Antiquity Scheme, which enables other historians and Archaeologists to research their own finds and pieces of history that was once ‘Lost In The Mud’.


DENO-C6E263: Post-medieval toy horn book


This was found 5 miles from my home in a farmers field that had been ploughed and worked for the past 400 years!
It has now been recorded on the national database.

Unique ID:** DENO-C6E263

An incomplete lead alloy tablet of the Post Medieval period, dating from c. AD 1500 – c. AD 1700.

It is is part of a miniature horn-book showing the English alphabet. About 75 % of the rectangular tablet is present, the lower left corner is broken off. Any frame or handle that may have been fitted is missing. The letters are raised and the alphabet is split over four lines reading; A b c d e f / g h I k L m/ [n o] P q r s / [v] WXY
The letter J is not included, suggesting that the horn-book predates the publication of Charles Butler’s English Grammar (1633) which first distinguished between I and J.
The letter Z is also missing (or not placed at the end.) As it is very uncommon in Latin, it was sometimes omitted from children’s alphabets.
The reverse is blank except for a series of incised parallel lines running vertically from top to bottom, dividing the rectangle into seven more or less equal columns.
The object measures 33 mm by 41.5 mm and is 2 mm thick. It weighs 16.2 g.


Next is this Queen Victoria silver coin collection pair – One shilling 1866 and sixpence
Please note – Never clean coins with anything other than warm water and an old toothbrush as this can completely devalue them.


Here’s a Sterling .925 silver bracelet that I found a while back. it was almost 10 inches deep in the middle of a field and came out looking like this after a gentle water bath.
I have not found out any info as of yet but I’m guessing 1920’s possibly earlier.



This coin is a large gun money half-crown (or thirty pence, hence XXX above the crown) which was issued by James II from about June 1689 until May 1690.** **This issue was superseded in April 1690 by a smaller coin of similar design which lasted until October 1690. The later coins were struck in Limerick as the Dublin mint was captured after the Battle of the Boyne in July 1690 and closed.

A small collection of finds from the 11th -18th century

IMG_20180326_225512.jpg

Here’s another collection of finds from a few months ago.
This was 4 hours out walking and hunting with a group of fellow detectorists.

IMAG0556.jpg

 

This was just a small selection from my large finds collection that I’ve ammased over the past 4 years.
I have so many finds that I could ramble on all day about them! I’ll be sure to post some more blogs about my world of detecting over the spring and summer months as the weather warms.

Thanks for reading, commenting, up-voting and sharing.
I hope you found some value in my post.
Thanks
Darren

Holy Spirit in the Church

Dear #Steemitchurch, you need to have an understanding of the church, the body which you belong. The church consist of all regenerated souls, each one redeemed by the blood of Christ and transformed by the Holy spirit. Without the holy spirit, there will be no purifying church, for the Holy spirit is the sanctifying power of the church, which is the body of Christ.

Members of the body of Christ are expected to live a new life in Christ which is sustainable by the enabling power of the holy spirit. Therefore there is no subject that is of greater significance above the person and work of the holy spirit in the body of Christ.

If you are a member of the leadership of the church of Christ, you need to cooperate wit the body of Christ to solve the problems of individual members of the local assembly. That is the reason the holy spirit must be the best companion of everyone in the position of leadership . The Mission of the church is to prepare and make the body rapturable according to Ephesians 5:25-27. The church must look unto Christ and not unto person.

And for the members of the body of Christ to be glorious without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, then the Holy Spirit must be allowed to do the works of purification in a believer’s life, in preparation in preparation for the rapture. Are you a member of the body of Christ.

Don’t Let Anger get the best of you

I have a quiz for you : who was the first person to break the law and why? The The answer is very Simple, Moses, in anger, broke the tablets of the law that God had just given him. Just imagine, this man had just spent 40 days and nights in the terrifying presence of the Lord; no food, no water. Yet, even before he delivered the tablets, anger made him smash them to pieces. It cost him another 40days and nights to get a replacement for the tablets of the Law.

You will recall that it was this same anger that made him commit the murder that got him banished from Egypt at the age of 40. Yet, at age 80, anger was still controlling him. You will recall that later on during the Journey to the promised land, Moses got God very Upset when he struck the rock in anger, against Gods instruction that speak to the Rock. Anger formed a pattern in the life of Moses. This time, God made it plain that Moses would never get to the Promised Land.

What Lesson do you earn from this? No matter how much time you spend in the presence of God fasting and praying, no matter God’s plan and assignment for you in life, no matter how much sacrifice you have made in your service to God, no matter how close you are to your goal in life sin, in this case, anger, can block you from reaching your goal or promised Land in life.

Dear #Steemitchurch, i appeal to you, do an honest and thorough examination of your self: do you have anger in anyways? it is not allowed! Get rid of it fast Do not allow anger to deter you from reaching your promised land in your marriage,career, walk with God and any other area of your life. Remember, anger can make a man lose his senses and do things he would normally not do.

The book of Galatians 5:22-23 talks about temperance, meekness, gentleness and other qualities that will make you prayerfully overcome anger.

Creating An ERC-20 Token Is Just The Beginning Seriously The Very Very Start Of The Journey

After all of the late nights coding, building and testing, and re-testing your ERC-20 token, you might have thought the hard stuff was over. But let me assure you that your journey is just beginning. Creating your token is really the very very beginning or foundation of the whole process to starting a successful cryptocurrency journey.

You Built The Token Don’t Jump Up And Down Just Yet…

There are a couple things that will give your token much needed validity early own. These few things need to be addressed as quickly as possible after creation of the token or smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain. One of these it verifying your contract and source code on Etherscan. Etherscan is the primary blockchain explorer for the Ethereum blockchain. Verifying your contract and making your source code public is a must. This can be done as soon as the contract has been compiled and launched on the Ethereum network.

Doing this requires some patience as it is hard to get it right the first time. There are several guides out there that can explain it better than I can so for that reason I am out on explaining the verification process. Here is a guide https://blog.fundrequest.io/verifying-your-truffle-solidity-contracts-on-etherscan-87cb374e2adc by Quinten De Swaef .

Getting things verified and adding the source code should be the hard part but it is easier than the next few things you should do to get your token listed on https://etherscan.io/

Getting Your ERC-20 Token Listed On Etherscan Is Tough.

When we created our token I don’t believe signing a message was part of the original verification process. It could have been but I do not remember reading anything about it. Now if you try to submit your information to Etherscan without your Contract having a valid signature you will be declined and no reason is given generally leaving you scratching your head about what to do.

Signing a message is important. It verifies that you have the right to list the token and it also adds some trackable abilities to the actual owner of ERC-20 tokens to help reduce scams and scammers. I would like to say that just because a token fails doesn’t mean it was a scam. There are in my opinion several successful tokens that appear to be scams but they have not collapsed yet. Transparency and honesty is important to determining the validity of a token and signing a message adds to the trust level. Someone can be held accountable now that there are some ways to track original ownership of the smart contracts.

The service you use to sign a message is up to you of course but the structure that is required is not. Etherscan has strict guidelines on the format of the message. They now have this listed which is very nice. You can find more details about the structure here: https://etherscan.io/tokenupdateverifysig

For Stish we used My Ether Wallet to sign our message. The link for this is not easy to find so we have provided it here: https://www.myetherwallet.com/signmsg.html

The format for the message is simple just be sure to copy it exactly as it was sent from myetherwallet. You will need to set the date correctly when you send your message. One thing you could do is create a quick notepad text file and store the information you need for Etherscan in it until you can take it to Etherscan and insert it all.

Your message will need to look like this:

 

[Etherscan.io 27/03/2018 01:29:40] I, hereby verify that the information provided is accurate and I am the owner/creator of the token contract address [token contract address]

You will need to use the wallet address that you used to create your Solidity Contract initially to verify. At least that is what we did to get approved. If you use that address to verify the message, you will need that address for the form below also.

The first message we did I was on the wrong account on metamask and sent the message, got all of the details entered correctly but had no reason why we were denied. It was tough until a super nice person at Etherscan emailed me one day with details that even I could follow.

Be sure you are on the correct wallet address when you create and sign the message. Which ever wallet address you use to sign the message, use that same address to enter into Etherscan’s form. 

After you submit the message via meta mask you will get a TX Signature hash. You will need to copy that and enter it next on Etherscan. It disappears quick so be ready.

The last step is to copy the exact message you signed and re-enter it on Etherscan.

Etherscan Now Has A Step By Step Guide Built Than Can Help You Stay On Track. Find it here: https://etherscan.io/tokenupdateverifysig 

You are almost done! There is still one more complex step that is no where to be found anymore. I can’t even find it. Here is what you do.

You will need to email Etherscan support and provide the information below: There is now a form for this but is hard to find and is  token specific. So if you have finished the steps above then generally after a few days you can search for your token and find it.

After you click your token’s name from the find bar you will be able to see more about your token. You might be able to find your token by the contract address also if it isn’t listed by name yet.

We still have some things we can update and will update soon. There is a tab for Token Info. When you click that you find the hidden link to update your token information. If you have the below information ready go give it a try and good luck.

Be patient as it might take several days for them to respond via email. Sometimes they will just give you a blanket denial. You will need to respond and ask for specific reason in a nice way so that you can drill down to the problem and correct it.

It helps to have many of the below social media profiles established before you ever launch your token. It also helps to have most of them. It is also wise to be listed on Radex exchange as without Radex.ai you will not get listed on Etherscan. 🙂

Original Music – Somehow true – by Darren Claxton

Here’s a track I’ve been working on recently. It has lots of different elements, the guitars, hand claps, percussion and that subtle banjo that appears in the chorus.

Lyrics:

Did I once see your eyes
fell apart then realised
plans we made then changed again
just the same, rejuvenate

Won’t you take me home
keep me safe and warm
safe and warm

Stories old and stories new
the lies but somehow true

Count the cost of a lovers loss
sunny skies, I love your eyes
lost but found I hit the ground
all is still, I had my fill

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Won’t you take me home
keep me safe and warm
safe and warm

Stories old and stories new
the lies but somehow true

Won’t you take me home
keep me safe and warm
safe and warm

Did I once see your eyes
fell apart then realised
plans we made then changed again
just the same, rejuvenate rejuvenate

Thanks for listening and supporting me and my music!
Cheers
Darren
The lady in the picture is my partner! the one that took me home and kept me safe and warm!

Wallet Erc 20 or Imtoken Wallet

Hi friends Steemthat.com friends there are some ERC 20 that is allowed, in short, among others Wallet IMToken. I also use this Wallet, I think is simple and practical, suitable for us active smartphone users. If the security problem is certainly fixed, I think if the security is not tested it is unlikely that PlayStor will allow it. That’s a simple logic from me. And here’s some evidence of tokens I’ve received on my MyToken Wallet.

This is proof I have received the STISH tokens…

My Confusion – and My First SteemThat Post!

I tend to be a little slow in figuring things out. That’s what my wife says anyway. I have to remind her that until she can crawl up into my mind to see how things work, she has no idea (she might find a few cobwebs up in there though). I recently realized that posting on Steemit and using the #Steemthat tag will pump your post over to the Steemthat Community Feed (Social Portal), but it does not create a published post on the Steemthat site. You basically publish your post on SteemThat as a separate post just as you would on Steemit, busy.org, etc. But when you post on SteemThat, you earn SteemThat tokens!

You will notice on the main page menu bar, there is the label “Publish” that has two drop down items – 1) My Posts and 2) Publish on Steemit. This is where my confusion eminates from and is why I am posting this writing as my own experiment to see how the site actually handles this post from within. In the past, while SteemThat was evolving, I always thought that if I published on Steemit, it was automatically populated to the SteemThat platform. And it is – it is published on the Social Portal (Community Feed) as a shared event, but not as an original SteemThat post. In order to do that, your Steemit post needs to be tagged #stishit or #stishitshare.

Now, should you choose to earn some SteemThat tokens, simply visit the “My Posts” menu link and publish your post on SteemThat.

So here goes… and now if I head over into “My Posts,” I should find all this… I hope!

                             “All This!”

Guppy fish………very nice

How’s Your Steemit Journey So Far? – Are You Glad You Signed Up?

 

Hello my fellow #plankton, #newbies and #minnows and other larger ocean dwellers!

steemit (2).jpg


This is now my 3rd month on #steemit and I must say it’s been an interesting and very insightful platform of discovery, full of mainly, great quality content and frankly, lovely, creative and helpful people.

So here’s a massive thanks to all the ones that have supported me and my music, tolerated my hyperactive ramblings and quirky ways!

Apologies for repeating what has already been said a thousand times regarding this subject but, I’d like to have a little rant to get it off my chest.

There are however, the #plagiarist types among us that think, a simple #copyandpaste with a crappy photo is still an acceptable way of making some #money on #steemit, but thanks to @cheetah bot and the respected users among us, they will be continuously unearthed I’m sure, as well as being flagged by us all that are completely against this ‘anti-creative’ and frankly, irritating shennaigans.

It’s such a simple task to credit the great resources that #google have to offer, by simply adding [Source] Followed by the url to your post inside brackets () 

Thanks to @LLFarms for helping me with this!

Now, I may be wrong with my understanding of this but, think I’m kind of right? so please bare with me.
There are of course,  the other account holders, which seem to have invested huge sums of money in Steem (I wish) that then post 1 picture with a 4 lined paragraph about ‘How nice the view is out of the window’ and somehow, get loads of up-votes and a healthy SBD payday to boot!

 

The last few weeks have been tough for me.  I was really flagging with all the late nights spent on here and #discord, trying to battle with my own Mental health issues and ridiculous paranoia, working full time in my tutor job with special needs children, and trying to get them through their mock exams, being a father, networking, researching and creating music content for my blog, in the hope that someone with a big influence here could give me a much needed boost and take me under their whale fin.

I’m pleased to say, it did happen, and why did it? for ease, to help me out? why should they? they must of started out as a tiny plankton in this huge ocean that is Steemit when it all started in 2016. Is it that I write decent songs? Or is it because, I take the time to comment on my posts comments left by others?  dip in and out of discord chats? speak to like minded people here?  because after all, it is a social portal and social means to COMMUNICATE with others and COMMUNITY. The sharing of ideas and involving yourself to create some worth is of such importance on Steemit.

Then, on Sunday 11th March I was directed to a web page that I thought was Steemit. In fact, it was a mirror image of Steemit called Steewit

Please do not use your master password to login anywhere because, IT’S A BLOODY NIGHTMARE TRYING TO GET YOUR ACCOUNT BACK.

I wrote a blog all about this on my @darrenclaxton page the day my new account was set up my my good friend @meno

Thanks to my #helpie family here on Steemit for getting me back to where I was with my old @mrbloom account.

I’ve gone from 25 rep to 56 rep in just 14 days which is no mean feat! It’s such a positive reminder for me,  and other new users,  how posting genuine time spent content is of such importance. My music has obviously created some connections and emotive feelings in others,  for them to be so generous and helpful in supporting my journey here.

Isn’t life weird? I mean, let’s compare and contrast here for a moment? Your bank account is hacked, they have your login details, they change them so you are unable to access your hard earned cash. This happens whilst you’re asleep so have  only idea how much has been transferred to some random account on the other side of the planet. So the question remains, would a total stranger set up a new bank account for you and deposit 50 quid (slang for GBP pounds) in there? just to ‘Get you back on your feet’

[source](https://www.horizoncommunitybank.com/protect-your-bank-account-from-being-hacked/)

 

Would they continue to support you emotionally and keep you feeling positive etc? The answer is a big fat NO! And that is why, my friends, I absolutely love this place! I’d like to think there are other brilliant people out there like our #helpienaut family ? that would support their fellow #steemians if this awful hacking business ever happened to one of their fellow users.

 

 

 


Then I see this tree the other day whilst out walking with my family. It had forced it’s way through the slats of that bench, and I thought to myself, ‘the struggle is real, life is tough, you must remain resilient in an ever changing world which is full of twists, turns and struggles…this tree endeavoured to grow, to push through no matter what and just kept trying to succeed and survive! and that is now how I think of Steemit,  a challenge, some crazy social experiment, a game and frankly, something to look forward to each day.

Commercial Short Covering

I just checked the gold and silver short positions and it was very telling. There was a massive silver short covering by the commercial hedgers. When you understand that the commercials are the major source of manipulation in the precious metals market, this move is more then telling.

The way it seems the game is played and has been played for several decades, the hedger(s) will put a sizable amount of short contracts on the market. These contracts will move the price of silver down. As the price moves down, the mood of the market will push the price down further. Once the price hit a low the hedger(s) will step in and buy at a lower price than they issued their original short contracts or when physical silver was available, they would buy physical silver.

Recent financial articles have been alluring to the break out of precious metals. Up to now these were all red herrings because the manipulators could and still could move the market as they desired, also known as ‘painting the tape’.

This time I believe it maybe different because now the manipulators are dumping their short positions in a big way. Also rumors are abound with trade wars on the horizon. Economically the world is in shambles, manipulators can play their games when there is money available but the (real) money supplies are at their lowest points ever, so there is little room to play their game. Another issue is more people have realized about the game so it is harder to pull the wool over the public’s eyes.

In conclusion, the hammer may be ready to drop.

Selamat pagi dunia…semoga tetap bahagia dan semangat menyelesaikan hari ini dengan senyum dan keberhasilan. Saat kecil dulu bermain – main di sawah adalah hal yang sangat menyenangkan apalagi pada saat musim potong atau panen padi. Kami para bocah yang belum penuh akal ini berlarian disekitar pematang sawah sambil bercanda dan tertawa lepas ntah apa yang ada dipikiran kami saat itu. Bertani adalah mata pencaharian orang tua kami saat itu, melihat padi tumbuh sempurna hijau dipandang mata adalah kebahagiaan tersendiri dengan harapan menghasilkan yang terbaik disetiap batangnya karena itu adalah harapan kelangsungan hidup

Spring Has Finally Sprung! Do you Love Gardening and Permaculture?

Spring has finally sprung here in Derbyshire, UK

I’ve managed to get out into our lovely cottage garden this afternoon to assess the potential damage caused by ‘The Beast From The East’ which hit us two weeks ago.


This adverse #weather forced many parts of the UK to a complete standstill on the Wednesday, and through to the weekend. Schools and businesses had to close and some shops even ran out of supplies for the rest of that week. Now, for those of you used to 10-12 inches 0r 30cm #snow during winter, maybe laughing at this amusing anecodte, but we’re just not geared up for that kind of freakish weather here! It absolutely battered our little rural village, with 2 foot snow drifts, which was overly exagerrated by the 80mph winds which caused face melting blizzard like conditions. We’re a few miles from the nearest main travel route, but Luckily, the snow plough arrived early on the Saturday morning to clear our lane. The garden has survived surprisingly well considering we had some -6c thermometer readings for 5 consecutive days. A few of my outdoor bonsai and some bulbs have perished, and I can live with that. All is good in my horticulture world and I look forward to many more green fingered evenings this#spring and #summer, if I can drag myself away from #Steemit and#Discord for long enough!


The Crocus is one of my favourite first blossoms in spring.


Permaculture has been on my mind recently and I’m finding more and more ways to embrace frugalism and sustainibilty. Composting old fruit and veg and recycling everyday items to use around the garden, have been on my list of priorities last year and going forward ito this growing season.


I now grow our strawberries in these re-purposed nylon builders bags, which are great for keeping those hungry ground dwelling creatures from gorging on these sweet fructose rich fruits!

IMG_20180313_175508.jpg

What is Permaculture?

I was really intrigued about this way of living, after talking to my fellow horticulture friend Huw Richards of @huwsnursery – We met after talking about me writing some instrumental music for his YouTube videos, and how gardening and growning your own food is such an inteseting and rewarding way of life.
Huw has an extensive knowledge of homesteading and permaculture, which you can learn from his very popular YouTube Channel 
But I wanted to know more, so I set about everyones favourite search tool#Google and found a website dedicated to this sustainable way of living.

Here’s some info from the home page of their website –https://www.permaculture.co.uk/what-is-permaculture

Permaculture is an innovative framework for creating sustainable ways of living. It is a practical method of developing ecologically harmonious, efficient and productive systems that can be used by anyone, anywhere.
By thinking carefully about the way we use our resources – food, energy, shelter and other material and non-material needs – it is possible to get much more out of life by using less. We can be more productive for less effort, reaping benefits for our environment and ourselves, for now and for generations to come.

This is the essence of permaculture – the design of an ecologically sound way of living – in our households, gardens, communities and businesses. It is created by cooperating with nature and caring for the earth and its people.

Permaculture is not exclusive – its principles and practice can be used by anyone, anywhere:

City flats, yards and window boxes
Suburban and country houses/gardens
Allotments and smallholdings
Community spaces
Farms and estates
Countryside and conservation areas
Commercial and industrial premises
Educational establishments

source


Really interesting reading I’m sure you’ll agree. I recommend you visit Huw’s channel and the website I mentioned, as they have so many amazing ideas for us all to try, however large or small, or rural/urban your area is. There’s no excuse not to grow something of your own, to then enjoy natures bounty for yourself.



Our composter full to the brim ready for our wrigglers to do their magic!


New seedlings grown from last years Naga and Birds eye chili fruit,s that I cultivated in our poly-tunnel.


Parsnip seedlings are doing very well under cover too – They tend to be quite a tricky crop to cultivate and car for.


Spring onions benefit from an early sowing under cover – These were sown early January to be transplanted outside after the last frost.


I went all exotic last year and bought some banana seeds online to try at home.
This variety of banana is ‘Musa balbisiana’ and was sown last February. The fruit are between a blue and green colour and are considered inedible because of the seeds they contain. I did read that agriculturists must of cooked and eaten these centuries ago to establish how to modify the heavily cultivated varities we consume today. As you can see, it’s doing really well so far, much to my good lady’s delight of my plants being spread all over the house on any empty windowsill available.


Rhubarb is one our summer favourites and is so easy to grow, as nothing seems to like to eat it! I make a crumble from it by chopping the stalks into chunks and covering with the mixture which is made from flour, sugar and butter –

Recipe courtesy of BBC Good Food

THICK VANILLA CUSTARD

Heat 600ml double cream until steaming but not boiling. Meanwhile, mix together 6 egg yolks, 4 tbsp caster sugar, 2 tsp cornflour and ½ tsp vanilla extract in a bowl. Pour the cream onto the eggs, stirring continuously as you pour. Pour the whole lot back into the saucepan the cream came from and place over a medium heat. Stir until it thickens, about 10 mins, then pass through a sieve and serve.
source


Another successful trial was to grow one of my favourite fruits, Nectarines! I sowed this seed last March which I got from a fruit that I ate.
you have to carefully crack open the stone to reveal the slim oval shaped seed inside.
I didn’t do anything special to it either, but did purchase a heated propagator for £30 online which has been an amazing investment. It germinates seeds very quickly by keeping them at a constant 21c.



Our cottage was built in the 1850s of Early Victorian England and some of the plants have probably been in the ground a lon long time. This is my favourite sash window which looks kind of bare at the moment as we’re just coming out of winter. I’ll try and grow a grapvine each side on the trellis this year. It’s sheltered and get’s lots of sun too as we have a south facing garden.


The Pansies I sowed in November are now budding nicely.


I also love to upcycle wood, so I made this nesting box. I’ve seen some interested birds hanging around in the tree opposite so they’ll hopefull be moving in soon!

I hope you enjoyed my first indepth gardening post and liked the Rhubarb crumble recipe too!
Let’s get out in our gardens, rooftop spaces and kitchens and grow some food! It’s fun and good for the soul!
Many thanks
Mr Bloom


Yes, I made this chair too!

A Beautiful Accident – Using Different Angles to Capture Colour Tones!

Hy All …

Have a nice day..

Food Glorious Food! Frugal Living – Delicious Food on a Budget – Toad In The Hole –

Toad In The Hole – Frugal Living & Delicious Food on a Budget

We’ve been living the #frugal #life for the past 6 months now, after deciding that we were spending far too much of our hard earned cash on overly expensive food, from rip off supermarkets and local shops.
I love to cook, and am the head-chef in our house as well as doing the wekkly ‘Friday Big Shop’ at Aldi. I work full time at a Special Educational Needs school during the week, and rarely get a chance to muster something yummy up of an evening, but I always cook for my little family on a Sunday.

Source

A firm favourite that I cook as voted for by my better half and my kids, is the good ole’ British favourite
‘Toad In The Hole’
Now, to my non-British cousins here, this meal possibly sounds like a weird dish that ‘The Twits’ would make! But rest assured, it’s a delicious and bellyfilling experience that you need to try.

Source

Here’s the ingredients and method for you to try, they are loads of recipes online, but I’ve adapted my own and it works a treat every time! so trust me folks!
Cost breakdown – In GBP ££
All In Ingredients are from Aldi –
8 Cumberland Sausages (72% pork) – £1.39
Plain Flour – 45p 2kg (bulk buy which lasts for weeks)
6 Large Free range Eggs – 89p
Olive Oil – 1l – £2.29
Semi-Skimmed Milk 6 pint – £1.48 (best to buy a large jug in our house @meesterboom
Salt and Pepper – £1.00 together

Preparation time -30 mins to 1 hour
Cooking time – 30 mins to 1 hour
Serves – 2 children & 2 Adults

Preheat your oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
The hotter the better, which will really help that batter rise!
You will need this equipment
A rectangular glass oven dish (I find that the batter doesn’t stick as much with these)
Weighing scales
a whisk
a measuring Jug with ml/fl oz
And a preheated oven at 200c/400f (Moderatley hot)

Ingredients –
4 eggs
140g/5oz – Plain flour
200ml/7fl oz – Semi- skimmed milk
1 pinch of – Salt and Ground black pepper
8 good quality – Pork sausages
3 tbsp – Olive oil
Optional extra – Dried Mixed herbs and onions.

Method
Here’s how to make the batter – sift the plain flour into a large mixing bowl, then add the salt and pepper for seasoning.
Make a well in the centre of the flour and crack in the eggs. Using a wooden spoon, gradually beat the eggs into the flour then slowly beat in the milk until the batter is the consistency of double cream.

Stir in the mixed herbs, cover and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
Place the sauasages in the dish, drizzle with olive oil and pop into the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
I like to prick holes in them to let the fat out, this will help with the non-sticking process.
Pour the batter over the hot sausages in the oven dish and Immediately return to the oven and cook for 35-40 minutes or until well-risen and golden-brown.

I like serve it with diffent veg each week so today I chose some delicious new potatoes and garden peas, with thick good ole’ Bisto Best gravy!
I also like some hot English mustard on the side for the sausages and mint sauce on the peas.

Straight from the oven! the aromas are mouthwaterngly incredible…I bet you wish you had smellavision!

7. And Most Importantly…ENJOY!!!

I hope you enjoyed my very first cooking blog post here on #Steemthat, and that you’re rushing off to the kitchen right now to cook up this classic ‘Great British’ favourite!
Happy cooking and eating folks
Kindest

It’s OK Not To Be OK! – Do you have Mental Health Issues?

  1. This is a repost from my @darrenclaxton account on Steemit.
    I felt it necessary to repost this as I’m feeling quite anxious and insignificant at the moment.
    I know it’s just the wave I need to ride, but reading this post that I created last month is helping me through this quagmire of uncertainty.
    Thanks.

This following motivational, life coach type message, really resonated with me yesterday.
It’s from a conversation I had with my new found friend @meno
https://steemit.com/@meno

‘Regardless of our understanding of pride
let’s pose the hardest of questions?
let’s say, that you spend the rest of your life
protecting it,
making sure that you never disappoint yourself,
that you stick to your guns, and never show weakness!

Lets imagine you do that…
…..

When the time comes… when it’s over
when you had to eat emotional shit with a silver spoon
to play that game, and you are getting ready to say bye to this world,
Who brings the trophy?

Who says… hey Mr Bloom.. here you go mate… good job
your ego/pride was intact your whole life,
in the 2 minutes you got left to bask in the knowledge, you earned it.

Spoiler! no one… no one does…
Not even you!
The most liberating thing we can do my friend, is let all that go.
We only get one shot… let’s have fun and laugh as much as we can.

Wise words from a very good human being!

The biggest issues with mental health, is knowing there is a problem but not knowing what to do or where to focus your energies – mental health is hard for some people to talk about, so thank you for stepping up and sharing your personal experiences with us.
I have found with my own struggles, it really works best for me to do what you did, focus on family and the things worth fighting for – they are the reason to wade through all the shit and find a way to make ourselves feel whole again, it can take time, but with support like you obviously had from your partner it can be done.
You can come out the other side, and having that knowledge is power! knowing there can be an end to the internal struggle and sadness – once you have that, you’re really on the way, even if it happens again, you now know what you need.

Thanks also to my musical mate @Krystle for her superb input!

During March-April of 2013, I wrote my first 5 track EP ‘Never Grow Old’ which was due for general release later that year. The songs almost wrote themselves and sprung out of me like an emotional whirlwind of emotive feelings and memories of past events. It was a year that saw me play over 50 gigs, various folk festivals and a few radio shows here in England, to promote the pending release of this physical and digital CD. It never really made it further than the few hundred people who bought it at one of those gigs. They were mostly signed copies, so I really hope they’re worth something one day….

Derby Folk festival – October 2013 –

The next part of this story is quite sad, But I feel very passionate about ‘Mental Health’ issues and just want to try and put an end to this overly ‘Taboo’ subject of Anxiety, depression and mental health that so many of us struggle with, and try to hide or act like ‘Nothing is wrong’ the tears of a clown syndrome, as I like to call it. I can only speak from experience and share my thoughts on the matter, and hope that I can reach out and help some of you reading this right now.

I’m lucky that I have music to channel my energy and a loving and supportive family that understand my little quirks and triggers. I’m a very lucky man in that respect but, I fear others are not so lucky , but I want them to realise that, THERE IS always someone willing to listen…Be it ‘The Samaritans’, Your neighbour, a Teacher, Friend or total stranger… Just talk to someone and don’t feel ashamed of how YOU are feeling.

It sadly culminated in my huge breakdown that November. A feeling of utter disappointment that I hadn’t hit the ‘Big Time’ came crashing down around me, teamed with huge anxiety and fear of never achieving my musical dreams and goals!
However, intertwined within all of this chaotic unchartered territory that I was experiencing, came an extremely beautiful and positive moment in my life. A few weeks before, at the end of October, our beautiful daughter was born (second child) which I swear, kept me strong and saved me from completely sinking into oblivion! My son was only 4 years old at the time, and didn’t really understand why ‘Daddy was so sad’ Thank goodness….I’ll explain to him one day when he’s old enough to understand, and I’ll also let him know how much he helped me to realise how fortunate I really was to have him, his sister and mum.

We can analyse the causes of our mental health issues until the cows come home, but we just need to accept them for what they are, random and sometimes completely Irrational thoughts.

I had failed my family somehow, maybe it was the aftermath of such an amazing summer?, or the fact that I had finally addressed a lot of heart ache and bad feeling towards certain people?, or maybe, just maybe, some self realisation that I had messed up so many things in my past relationships, with my Ex girlfriend and estranged mother.
When I say ‘Messed Up’ what I really mean is, letting THEM control MY feelings towards THEM and strive to make them happy or accept me for who I am! but you know what? we should never let anyone dictate to us in this way, force us to accept their love, time and energy or indeed , control how ‘they want us to be.

By the following April I had undertaken Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Counselling sessions to alleviate those anxious feelings, thoughts of being a failure or third rate citizen, and it REALLY helped…
Months and a few years ticked by and I slowly managed to drag my self away from that mind-set, with the help of my now partner and close family members! It’s been a bumpy ride full of tears and laughter, but now, mainly laughter and happiness.

Intel Claims Hardware Chip Fix

Intel’s chip coming out later this year will have improved changes at the hardware / architecture level which will correct the flaw that allowed the Spectre and Meltdown viruses to affect the computer with Intel CPUs.

Source: techcrunch.com

They determined that the virus Spectre has three variants. The new chips will protect against variant 2 and variant 3 (known as Meltdown) but they haven’t cracked variant 1. The redesigned the processor by creating a partition and introducing new levels of protection, this works against variants 1 and 2. This new design will be incorporated in the 8th generation Core and the Cascade Lake Xeon.

Regarding hardware fix for variant 1, they are still working on a solution. As for existing CPUs, there has already been software patches released. They will continue to release updates when and if they discover new fixes. They advise users to keep there software up to date.

Oakland Mayor Complicity

Last month Oakland mayor, Libby Schaaf informed illegal immigrants of a planned secret raid being staged by ICE. According to ICE officials, her actions allow for the escape of as many as 800 illegal immigrants. She later tweeted her reasons for getting out the word, below is the tweet.

I do not regret sharing this information. It is Oakland’s legal right to be a sanctuary city and we have not broken any laws. We believe our community is safer when families stay together.

She may have to eat a little crow as three of the illegal immigrants whom avoided capture didn’t follow through making the city safer. They have been re-arrested for new crimes.

After her actions she was lambasted by Trump as well as Sessions. Per Sessions, “How dare you! How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical, open borders agenda”. Trump said “What the mayor of Oakland did the other day was a disgrace”. Trump also contemplated pulling ICE from California.

Regarding the three arrested, one was a Mexican national arrested for robbery and gun crimes whom was released despite an ICE detainer request. Another was a Mexican national whom was arrested for DUI, he was deported three times and had a prior conviction for false imprisonment, DUI and battery of a spouse. The third was a Mexican national who was arrested for corporal injury of a spouse, he was deported twice and had prior convictions for drug possession, hit and run, DUIs, possession of narcotic equipment and a parole violation.
