Pentagon confirms leaked UFO images are real

The Pentagon has confirmed that U.S. Navy personnel captured several leaked images and a video depicting unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAP, involving incidents currently investigated by the Department of Defence’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF). Read the article here.

leaning in

The time has come for me to make a stand. From Monday (12th April), I will get back to doing some freelance work in PR and web development, along with bringing one or two of my blogs back to life. Rhona is throwing everything she has at Pumpkin Cakes, so I will be helping to market that business for her.

I am deep into developing a new website for the rebranded football club; I am the secretary. That is going to need at least another three weeks of work to finish. The most important item on my agenda, though, is taking care of my son. He and I need to get out and do more in the way of exercise. It will be good for both of us. That is all.

a return to Instagram

I have decided to start using it again. I’m not proud of it, but I need to tap into every resource at my disposal in my search for creative work. Along with the other social media channels, Instagram will be a way for me to funnel traffic to my website. If you can’t beat ’em – join ’em! Who knows, I might even become an influencer?

I need a day job. I’ve been looking into various roles. The top of my list is the relatively chilled out fruit picking job. I will make enquiries with the 350-hectare berry farm (that’s in the next village) on Tuesday.

Extreme E begins

The all new EV off-road championship Extreme E gets underway this weekend in Saudi Arabia.

Extreme E is a radical new off-road racing series, founded by the same visionary behind Formula E, which will showcase electric SUVs and futuristic technologies in some of the world’s most remote and challenging environments.

This five-event global voyage will utilise its sporting platform for the purpose of promoting electrification, environment and equality. The series’ goal is to highlight the impact of climate change in some of the world’s most endangered environments, promote the adoption of electric vehicles to pave the way for a lower-carbon future and provide a world-first gender-equal motorsport platform.

The first sport to ever be built out of a social purpose, Extreme E aims to minimise environmental impact while
maximising awareness, racing in places that have already been damaged or affected by climate change or human interference and taking fans deep into the heart of the most pressing issues facing our planet’s future.

Not only that, but Extreme E is also helping the car industry to develop future-facing technology using racing as a platform for road innovation, which accelerates change ten-fold.

back in his happy place

Karta and I took a ride to the skatepark in Aylesham. It was the first time he had ridden his scooter on a ramp since December 2020. Roll on spring and warmer, drier days.

being apart

I didn’t realise just how much I would miss my wife. She is away on an orientation course as part of her new job in the telecoms sector. She only went away yesterday, but already that feels odd to me. If I go away, the daft thing is that I don’t feel the separation anxiety as much.

So, it’s just Karta and me for the week. This is the last week of term for mainstream schools, and so Karta will be finishing up his latest round of homeschooling on Thursday. I hope to make plans to meet up with friends and get out into the woods for some needed exercise and fresh air.

As for me, well, I have plenty of chores to keep me busy, plus I am going to make time to sit at my desk and write posts for this blog every day. Today is, after all, the day when lockdown restrictions are eased a bit more. We are now allowed to meet outdoors in groups of up to six people from two different households. Outdoor sports venues are reopening, which includes the football club that I am involved with.

That’s all I have to say for now, stay tuned for a lot more going forward.

I am starting to think that the government ‘roadmap out of lockdown’ will be changed quite a bit over the coming weeks. I hope that the council will open up outdoor skateparks again to get Karta out of the house and doing something physical. Plus, I start longing for springtime at this time of year and with it warmer weather and longer days.

my new normal

For the first time in many months, I find myself alone at home; this is rare.

So, what did I do with this slice of freedom? I cleaned the house, listened to some music and watched a few YouTube videos. Is that constructive? I don’t know, but anyway, it has all lead me to sit down and spew forth some words of encouragement and reflection.

an unschooling primer

Leo Babauta of Zen Habits has written The Beginners Guide to Unschooling. Much of his advice is the same as what we have been doing with Karta. Why not read through it and see what you think?

letting go

I feel a change is coming to the way I move through life. It is time to let go of everything that has held me back. For too long, I have let myself get caught up with things from my past, and that has compromised my clarity of thought. Not anymore.
