Bronte & The Bronze

Benefitz Betty's picture

Pens, profiles & places, shy explorer tools of the Bronze Age, where once upon a time fantastic realities his stories and futures were made...  

The Bronte sisters too are acclaimed for capturing the spirit of an age, pens 'n' swords ...  "In a time when women were considered little more than social adornments and bearers of offspring  ... The options for the proper yet impoverished woman during the time were limited a governess or teacher, roles Charlotte Brontë considered forms of bondage..."

The importance of Money ... most accept, like it or not, we live in a Capitalist culture based on supply meets demand, to trade or not to trade. Banks do it, consumers do it, we all do it ....  earn, spend, borrow.  Vulgarities aside, from the Chancellor of the Exchequer to the homeless man on the street, we all get by doing what we can, in these 'austere' times, to live within our means or to dip, peddle, tinker, potter.   Borrowing seems straight forward  it is The Art of Lending that is a bit of a mystery.

It might only be £30 per week ...


EU: TTIP - The Bonds

Capt. 'Bob''s picture

Since 2014 lack of transparency over the TTIP negotiations has led to much doubt about what is included and what is not.  Labour MEP's have been actively involved in the negotiations attempting to ringfence certain aspects, ie the NHS, alongside ISDS (interstate dispute settlements).

The Cinder Track

Mortal Mindy's picture

Recycled: "From 1885 until its closure in 1965 the old railway line from Scarborough to Whitby took goods and passengers up and down the North Yorkshire coast. Now it's an off road route through the North York Moors National Park for walkers, horse riders and cyclists.

You might decide to make a slight detour and visit one of the quiet bays such as Crook Ness, Cloughton Wyke, Hayburn Wyke, Stoupe Beck Sands or Maw Wyke Hole, or make a circular walk of it by taking in part of the Cleveland Way.
