Good morning all,
I hope that the start to your week is going well so far. Thank you to everyone who joined our first ever weekend / Saturday talk, presented by Stuart on the ‘Science and Anti- Vax movement‘. We had nearly 30 members attend, and it was wonderful to see some faces, whom I have not seen for a very, very long time.
It really was an interesting presentation – and as one member later shared with me;
‘The presentation was superb – well structured, very informative, useful and enjoyable as well (Trump’s cartoons, especially). I liked the introduction about the scientific history as well as the main theme of the Anti-Vac issues. Thank you so much for arranging that.’
I am hoping to arrange further talks, so please watch this space!
WHAT CAN I SHARE WITH YOU TODAY?

Live online seminars; Making Gratitude a Habit – Thursday 28th @ 6:00pm
Counting your blessings, being thankful and appreciative… Sometimes, do you find it difficult to be grateful? Even when things are tough, gratitude makes sense. Because gratitude is short for ‘great attitude’. It makes us happier.
From Chris T:
I’ve enjoyed reading The Murmur of Bees by Sofia Segovia it’s about a mysterious abandoned child and the impacts on the adopting family. It’s set in Mexico around the time of the revolution.
These 3 mystery series I’ve been reading, I have kindle unlimited and not sure if I’d have spent the money on them. Miss Hewitt mysterious by Linda Stephenson. They’re set around the 1st world war. Nuala Mysterious by Harriet Steel. They’re set in Sri Lanka (Ceylon) in the 1930’s.
Over the last few months, many of you have shared images of London (and other areas), all but deserted. These photos really capture how our boroughs and cities have become almost ghost towns.
These images from Catherine M really show and encapsulate the emptiness of our streets.
