I've been watching the Hamilton show on Disney+. I was very late to this cultural phenomenon, both my siblings have been recommending it for what feels like years. A few months ago I watch it through during one of my "night-shifts" with the baby. (Back when I was covering 8pm-2am and then sleeping 2am-8am). I … Continue reading History has it’s eyes on you
My wife and I have been together a long time, even before we got married I think we had been dating for 5-6 years! In the early days, when I was in the long process of winning her heart - I would make every effort to talk with her! Back in the day MSN messenger … Continue reading All night!

When Jesus was asked 'how to pray', He gave a … Continue reading 3 Prayer Tools for 2021

Because ‘young listeners were particularly sensitive to derogatory terms for gender and sexuality’. I’m not really one to engage in the so called ‘Culture Wars’, especially … Continue reading Propoganda – Cynical
I know, I know, it was only a couple of posts ago I was moaning about how much I listen to music.

I love music. This last year I’ve been experimenting with Spotify and Apple Music subscriptions. I think, despite my love of Apple – Spotify have won this battle.
