‘That’s where all the criminals come from’ – a different point of view.

I’ve moaned about the criminal element of the world holding the law abiding to ransom before – and the fact that there’s no such thing as a victimless crime. I’ve argued for tougher penalties, and parenting classes for new parents to raise socially responsible children. I’ve even suggested a points system – so many points … More ‘That’s where all the criminals come from’ – a different point of view.

I wrote about this last year, https://rebeccabrynblog.wordpress.com/2020/03/08/the-inequalities-that-inspired/ and much has changed since then. The pandemic has turned all our lives upside-down. So how have I spent my year in lockdown? I finished my work-in-progress, The Chainmakers’ Daughter, the story of the white slaves of England – the women chainmakers who went on a ten-week strike … More International Women’s Day 2021 – fighting to prove a woman’s worth.

The March of Death – Holocaust Memorial Day

Holocaust Memorial Day marks the liberation, on January 27th 1945, of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi death camp in Poland, by the Russian 60th Army. While most people have heard of Auschwitz and the horror perpetrated there, many would reasonably believe that liberation put an end to the inmates suffering, that they were rescued and returned to … More The March of Death – Holocaust Memorial Day

The Christmas Grouch.

I freely admit it. I’m the grumpiest person around when it comes to Christmas. The thing I hate most, apart from the incessant Christmas songs, the hype, and the commercialism, is writing Christmas cards.

The inequalities that inspired a revolution. International Women’s Day 2020

I don’t consider myself to be a women’s libber, and had I lived in the early 1900s, I’m not sure I’d have had the courage of the likes of Mary Macarthur or Emily Pankhurst, but I have always been keenly aware of women being viewed as second-class citizens. I didn’t question it – it’s how … More The inequalities that inspired a revolution. International Women’s Day 2020

Honouring the Fallen

It seems to me that the best way of honouring the fallen of two world wars is not to forget their sacrifice and have some understanding of what they went through. ‘Lest we Forget’ is written large on many memorials for a very good reason, but what do most of us actually know about the … More Honouring the Fallen

Mayhem, Maria, & Music

Scams and generosity – the eternal struggle for good over evil.

Yesterday, I had three attempted scams on my finances. The first was someone purporting to be Amazon – an e-mail saying I’d ordered a 76″ TV at a cost of in the region of $1700.
