Savvy Sunday Salutations:
Today we kick start off the new Savvy Sunday Salutations format with non-other-than our resident guest blogger Patrick Tulley; I thought it was appropriate to take the plunge with someone we already know. As previously mentioned Savvy Sunday Salutations (with guest bloggers) will now roll out on a fortnightly (two-weekly) basis. Guest bloggers will write/create an article of their own choosing -my only condition is that it must be something they enjoy writing/creating. In addition to this, I will be
interrogating carrying out a semi-interview-type question and answers session with my victims guests. So, dare I say, you are all in for a treat. Happy reading!
Male Power isn’t All it’s Cracked up to be
I wanted to share an interview I listened to recently with Warren Farrell, the author of the book, ‘The Myth of Male Power’, that’s available on Youtube. I found it fascinating and seemingly connected many of the dots for me, when it came to contemporary gender issues. I have been toying with writing about this subject for some time now. I will admit to a fair amount of anxiety in doing so, since men are often attacked for taking a position on issues that affect women, even though I believe this issue affects both genders equally. This probably goes some way to explaining the almost resounding silence on this issue from men, which is why I step into this subject with gingerly steps of course. I apologise for the rather lengthy video interview (19 parts) -which is why I am going to break this subject up into parts over the coming weeks, so as to get a more overall picture including some of my own criticisms of Warrens views.
Thursday’s Topical Tête-à-Tête:
I have some good news for fans of Patrick Tulley; after his disappearance act (I have had words! ), Patrick will be taking over the Thursday slot for a limited period until we finalise the ‘how details’ on where he will take his blogging to. Here he will have philosophical discussions in keeping with the Topical Tête-à-Tête theme, which will be scheduled fortnightly. His post today, is extremely engaging and witty; I hope you enjoy the read as much as I have.
A Healthy Alternative to Drugs: Burnt Toast
Ok, I’m going to discuss something political this time around. Not my usual topic, but I have been having some strong issues regarding this subject matter recently. By the way apologies for my recent hiatus, but I’ve been a little busy with my personal life and since the changes with the website I decided to have a little break from blogging.
