In this post I share a communication from an informant reporting that self-proclaimed bottom-end property developer Yusufa (Tom) Faye is 'still' as dodgy as they come. I also include supporting comment from others around town that have suggested less than satisfactory work standards are his style, thus the saying that leopards never change their spots applies. I then give my … [Read more...] about Tom Faye – Dodgy Is As Dodgy Does
Bureaucratic Justifications – Two Laws
In this post I share four recent events where I have encountered justifications that are based on immorality; people in power utilising it for nefarious purposes - the local council, crooked cops, a lying neighbour and a local legal firm. All actions appear on the surface to be justified but seeing the 'other side' of the equation brings proper balance. As always it is pride … [Read more...] about Bureaucratic Justifications – Two Laws
Hello History: Bye Bye Sodom & Gomorrah
Scientific studies commenced more than a decade ago show that Lot's wife could easily have been turned into a pillar of salt - quite literally. Consider a meteorite exploding above ground, vapourising salty waters and leaving a devastated area worse than Nagasaki. Sound far-fetched? Perfectly reasonable, thus doubt it no more when you read their research. This one will blow you … [Read more...] about Hello History: Bye Bye Sodom & Gomorrah

Musings 9 – Understanding Self-centricity
This post shares about self-centricity, a vitally important aspect of life to understand for genuine truth-seekers and this is not claiming that we need to give more at all. On the contrary, I say that it is by understanding others that we gain an increased understanding of who we are.

I shared the pain of a mate of mine yesterday as she said her final goodbyes to her youngest son - cremated in Taumarunui. He'd gotten killed last week - hit by a car after dark in Manunui.

Musings 7 – Gab’s Response: Thanks, But No Thanks!
Here is a response from Gab to the US Administrations requests for information, essentially saying, "Thanks but no thanks!" Putting this in common parlance, "F*** off and take your dopey harassment elsewhere!" It's a response of defiance that will not go down well with TPTB at all, at all, at all. As they say, if you stand for something noble, you stand against all ignoble! … [Read more...] about Musings 7 – Gab’s Response: Thanks, But No Thanks!
