Monday Musings…21st November 2022…COP27, Be a Lert and hot off the press…Variety is the Spice of Life: A Blend of Poetry and Prose –

Good Morning…and welcome to Monday Musings… a place where my inner child comes out sometimes and also where anything which has wowed or dismayed me has happened over the last week…

COP27…Finally reaches a breakthrough agreement on “Loss and Damage” for vulnerable countries who suffer some of the world’s worst effects of climate change yet have contributed less to those effects… at long last, they will be helped…A positive milestone!

But negotiations are ongoing…

As the bank account has still to be opened I do hope that the richer countries put their hands in their pockets…I hope this is not empty promises…

I think we all have similar though about scammers and hackers…

Thus we all have our own procedures for keeping ourselves and our hard-earned cash safe and where it belongs…Clive thought so too …he has been quite brave in revealing what happened to him …a lesson I have taken on board as I think we are so used to fending off the scammers we can get complacent when we really shouldn’t…Thank Clive for sharing…a useful lesson for us all…

I absolutely love the cover of Sally’s latest book…Sally is most generous with her promotion and sharing of other authors and bloggers so it’s only right that I should return the favour…Sally’s new book is available on Amazon UK and Amazon US…

Variety is the Spice of Life is a collection of poetry and short stories about relationships with others, including pets and animals inhabiting the world around us. The connection with others brings love and friendship, excitement and sometimes surprises, danger, mystery and sometimes the unexpected.

The poetry explores human nature, fears, desires, expectations and achievements. Nature offers a wonderful opportunity to observe animals both domesticated and wild. Even in a back garden, you can observe a wide variety of creatures and the daily challenges to survive a harsh environment.

The short stories introduce you to a healer whose gift comes with danger, a neighbour determined to protect a friend, a woman on the run, an old couple whose love has endured, an elderly retired teacher who faces a life-changing accident, a secret that has been carried for over 70 years and a village who must unite as they face devastating news.

Head over to buy the collection in ebook and print: Amazon UK – And: Amazon US

Thank you for joining me today as always I look forward to your comments and appreciate your visit xx

      My fears exactly, Robbie as that as you know is often the case…I remember years ago a customer of mine called Felicity I still remember her name and she was involved in shipping for some charity and it was stuck at the incoming port pending payment by whoever was demanding it and she was so angry…

        Yeah. Used to be the scammers were…kind of obvious. Poor spelling, poor grammar, ‘Dear email address’ etc. Now it sometimes feels as if they’re spying on us, they seem to know us so well. :/

    Good luck to the lovely Sally with her new book.
    As for the COP 27 promises, I am not holding my breath. There have been too many hollow promises coming out of those conferences, and we have yet to see many positive outcomes from them. (If any)
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      I agree and as it down to the better off and more affluent countries who are the cause of most of the global warming …we shall have to hope and wait and see if they play their part x

    I read Clive’s article with great interest. I commend him for sharing his story. Part of the reason some of these scams work is that many are afraid to admit they’ve been duped.

    Much luck to Sally with her new book.
