Opportunities with Amazon

Welcome back to the blog that raises money just by having you here!!

Since your last visit I have brought Amazon on board. This means that if you have any purchases coming up through Amazon then click on the link above and Amazon will contribute to the cause when you buy from their site. Some of you will buy from them regularly, others not. Click the link and see what they sell - you will be amazed at their range and their prices.

This is another chance to give without actually parting with any more cash!! A real credit crunch busting idea!! If you have any more ideas or feedback do leave a comment below (click "comments").

Latest poems in the usual place - keep doing the write thing!!
Click and read.

St George's Day

Today is the day when we remember St George, but who on earth is he? The patron Saint of our country - not of Scotland, nor of Wales but of England. This is the country that doesn't exist on the internet - scroll down menus have Equatorial Guinea and Eritrea BUT not England!!

So read The St George's Day poem and answer the question - who was St George? If you have any answer to this question then add a comment at the end of this blog and I will publish the most useful ones.

For all you commuters, there is a commuter poem on the blog this week - check it out!! It was written while gazing out of a commuter train.

World Autism Day

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. A day for focus, a day for reflection. How many children and adults in the UK, in the world, have Autism - and how many of those have no idea that they have Autism?

Those with Autism have a thousand shades of the condition, the "spectrum". They have social communication issues, they struggle to interact with others and have an imagination that can be obsessive and unable to see the way through the regular things of life.

There are reckoned to be between 6 and 10 out of every 1000 people who are on the spectrum, many with genetic connections, all with brain disorders and none with a cure. So, increase your awareness on this special day.
