A very grateful thanks to him for this honour and a much-love kinda thing to you, Mike.


Now I must say that it is a pleasure to entertain you and I may have to do this in two parts, I think it a necessray thing that I open up with the following websites that need to be addressed with the problem of fame.  That is.

  1. The bug bed situation in the site Gotta find a home –
  2. dedhedpoetblog –
  3. stars rain sun moon –
  4. 021 –
  5. Karen Gadient
  6. Lifeofabbas – :
  7. Johncoyote –

These are a few of the blogs I read but the best so I will feel in need of a hand to get the off the earth and moving in the region of fame and glory for the owners and the contributors.

Now, I see there are some questions that need answring so let me begin by starting with Q1 and see what we can do.

Question 1  If you won the lottery or became very wealthy, what would you do differently than today?

Honest?  I would fly to Russia to see my sweetheart there (I’m a poet and single) and then I would take her on the world’s only hike through the Okavango Swamps where we would make love in the bush and have a baby. This would be followed by endless blogging and stuff from the bush as we grew up far from the maddening and madding crowds.  It would be a long festival of hope, peace and prosperity away from the British way of doing things and their staunch upper-lip kinda stilton feeling for things like their fellow creatures.  I think of badgers and the cull here of their entire population in the hope of preserving a few cows in the population of millions.

I would also open a two-bit store for the homeless here in Bath where they would appreciate the resource much as they would be able to use it.  Thus I would do.

Question 2  If someone’s ideas clearly opposed your beliefs and needed help defending them, would you help them?

Look it depends what the beliefs are and if they are encouragingly similar to mine then okay, but if they are not then I would have trouble, say, defending a murderer but so it is with terrorists and their viewpoint of war and freedom-fighting – there are always opposing viewpoints that need acknowledging, not necessarily defending.

Question 3 If you could tell the entire world one thing, what would it be?

I would tell them the thing of most value to them.  As a “Voice Hearer” by definition in psychiatry, not madness, just alternative viewpoint shall we say as to the nature of control and its auspices under the suitable name of Mentor not Menace that makes it a little song and dance for them what isn’t a bit like the one in the book, innit?  For them what ain’t like Denis then I say this – that there are someone else’s May and June allowed only man and woman tree as zero make it in and out then over there shall be to then and then only them and their sign of they and this and tho’ it be it be not , so.

In other words it is about the man without the real men and women who try and get alot of attention and then get a real win and lose everything when it comes down to it,.But it is Small that is beautiful, in the words of Beria about his .22 believe it or not, as he executed many with it by hand so to speak.

He knew what it took to engineer such a thing and it kept on working right to his death.

Now I know what it means to want a .22 like that. I would use it on a few people round here and silently put them out of their miseries.


Question 4 Are you a ‘big picture’ person or a ‘detail’ person?

A big picture.


Question 5  Assuming you believed in reincarnation, other than human, what animal would you want to be?



Question 6  Other than a job or something you get paid to do, what do you think is your greatest talent?


Question 7  What was the last picture you took?


The above is the view looking west along the River Avon which meanders along the Avon Valley and Bath lies on its flood plain before the Avon continues west to Brostl and the sea about fifteen miles away.As you can see, Bath has its share of spires as well as Constable-reminding bridges.  Lovely in the sun today, though the breeze has been stiff and cold.  Taken today 15/2/2016.

In the other direction:


Questions for my contestants are as follows – just a few – 7!


  1. What would you do with a million pound jackpot on the lottery, but only a million, for life, every single year of your life?
  2. What is the single most important thing to you in your life?
  3. What is you best friend?
  4. What s you best word?
  5. What do you sing in the bath/shower?
  6. Why are you sane?
  7. What is you single most harrowing moment in your life?

That’s it!!  Good luck in your search for truth!!

    So glad you played along. Great answers!!

    • The Bioman says:

      So MM, what do you think? Why are you sane?

      • midimike says:

        I am not sure I have achieved or always maintain sanity. But for the times that I can I credit my best friend – logic! I definitely have my emotional, fearful, depressed or angry components, but I also have logic to balance them. Knowing is not always the same thing as feeling, and I guess I depend on both to keep me from going over one ledge or the other. For me it is not ‘one or the other’. I carry both with me at all times. It goes back to one of my personal guidelines I have mentioned before.
        There are three sides to every story. In this case; yours (emotional) , mine (logic) and the truth is somewhere in-between!

      • The Bioman says:

        And therefore your logical consideration of your own circumstance leads you to believe that you are sane, Spock?

      • midimike says:

        Sane enough to avoid pitfalls like self blame or the feeling that I ‘deserve’ whatever good or bad happens to me or for me. Logic tries to filter out the things that I cannot affect, things that use up my energy without improving my situation. Yes, like Spock I think I can better see why events happen and what steps have priority. Unlike using logic alone, I see the beauty in so many things and the fierce loyalty I have for family and friends often guides me when logic offers no clear path. This can lead to a minor feeling like dual personality, but they are not often in conflict. Over the years they have learned to share the same goal and negotiate the paths I take. If one is silent, the other speaks up. Live long and prosper. Life is good but not always easy!
