Its that time of the year again carnival in Gozo, the place is packed with people and floats and parades are getting ready for this long weekend event. You really have to look twice when passing some of the guys dressed as women (I think the beards give them away). There’s going to be a lot of fun frivolity and no doubt a little s-x on the side. But what happens in Gozo during Carnival stays in Gozo. I’m not sure if its safe for me to venture out tonight, hmm we shall see.
It’s 6am on Friday 31st January 2020, I’ve been looking forward to 2020 for some time now 20/20 vision and all that, but strangely my view on things has changed and I think for the better. Take yesterday for example, and don’t forget I’m running 2 blogs apart from this I also have http://www.britishbuddha.com which when I set that up made the mistake of adding blog to the BB part. Confused? Well I certainly was, but to get back on track (I really must stop rambling).
I set off yesterday with a mission, as usual I’d had little or no sleep (I can’t understand how this worn out body keeps going). It’s now 6-45 so to continue, confusion reigns as with 2 blogs, 3 email addresses numerous domain names? I need to simplify my life (perhaps that’s where Odoo can help. After all they paid for most of the day yesterday. So the Marriott Hotel in Malta, its only been open 2 weeks it’s got to be their flagship location, its huge, its luxurious, its state of the art. Do you think I’m exaggerating? OK all will be revealed. IF you ask via this blog
So I decided I needed to simplify my life, come off Facebook, close bank accounts, even reduce blogging to one a month…..EASIER SAID THAN DONE. I’ve been blogging for years under different names etc and I’d forgotten most of them NOW I’ve found some of my original blogs http://betterbusinesschanges.blogspot.com/ was possibly the start but I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more as the dates look too recent. However back to Downsizing. Yes maybe I should monetise my blog, I need PayPal for that and unfortunately we don’t seem to be getting along recently. But I’ll persevere ‘cos there’s money involved. Coming off Facebook is a dream (or in my case a nightmare). My aim is to cut free from Facebook by 2020 (20/20 vision resonates with me) BUT I need Facebook to publicise another little venture I’m thinking of starting, a tea shop like no other seen before, this place would be run a a non profit people could come to buy sell and swap things, massage, meditation, book exchange, talks by guest speakers and lots of other things (whatever the guest/customer/member wants it will do). I’ve had tea shops before and I know what will and won’t be successful and I even have the signage from my last tea shop “The Divine LOVE Tea shop” and I have a location. BUT I refuse to invest my money so I’ll have to be creative in funding. IF anyone is interested I can be contacted. Being a non profit doesn’t mean people work for free, wages and commissions would be paid but once all costs are covered any profits are donated to a local Gozo charity. Hopefully this will encourage locals to get involved (hmm easier said than done).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvgN5gCuLac&t=10s
So maybe you thinking (like me) hang on he’s trying to simplify his life but adding all this new STUFF. Well so long as it’s enjoyable I see no problem. My new religion:- IF it hurts no-one else you can do anything that makes you happy, no boundaries, but no-one else should be hurt or offended, (it goes without saying I won’t be running naked down the street).
Life is good ENJOY it Namaste Peace and Love.
OK now as a bit of a dinosaur I’m going to try and monetise my blog. I’ve been writing blogs for years mainly with WordPress but I think it would be interesting and maybe even financially rewarding to start the process. We shall see.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTP2RUD_cL0
I wonder how may people know how Facebook started? Mark Zuckerberg owes everything to a Brit called Tim Berners-Lee, not only him but many of the other icons of the internet do.
WHY? Because he invented the internet without which we wouldn’t be connected in our world. So to Facebook, yesterday I decided to give Facebook a rest I’m always on it so today I did other stuff, but turning on the TV and there he is being questioned by the EU in Brussels.
Think about it what would happen if Facebook closed down tomorrow?
Zuckerberg started Facebook when he was in college and was a way he thought would be cool to connect everyone there. Well it has certainly achieved that, he’s made billions just like Bill Gates reputedly the richest many in the world (actually on checking he’s the 2nd richest).
Tim Berners-Lee I’m sure has a modest bank account and I’m sure is quite happy with his lot. So tonight enough from me at least this kept me off Facebook.
Peace and Love to all
