The Idiot that is Katie Hopkins – the unfortunate consequence of Free Speech

We all have the right to say what’s in our minds. However, we should always carefully consider the repercussions of our words. Words can empower, but they can also hurt. Take for example the inconsiderate and vile tweets by Katie Hopkins – a British television personality and columnist:

Just Another Day at Pleasure Beach, Blackpool

Whoever thought of today’s prompt probably has not been to the Northwest of England! 😉

Today’s Prompt: You’re at the beach with some friends and/or family, enjoying the sun, nibbling on some watermelon. All of a sudden, within seconds, the weather shifts and hale starts descending form the sky. Write a post about what happens next.


Let me tell you a little something about the Northwest of England: it always rains here!! ‘Summer’ usually consists of a week or two (if we’re lucky) of sunshine and a few months of rain. You can wake up to blistering heat, but then as soon as you walk out of your house, it’ll be raining so hard your umbrella will be shredded.

Pleasure Beach

Today’s prompt simply describes a typical summer day out at Pleasure Beach, Blackpool. What do we do when a hailstorm suddenly comes on a sunny day?

In the meantime, let me remind you of why we bother to go to Blackpool on a great day:



Weekly Photo CHallenge – Extra, Extra

Heaton Park, Manchester

This photo was taken at Heaton Park, Manchester, UK. One may ask where the ‘Extra, Extra’ part is in the picture. The fact is that you cannot directly see it for it is the sun. Yes, the sun. Manchester rarely sees the sun shining in the sky even if it is officially the summer here. Therefore, it is always a pleasant surprise whenever we have bright, sunny, warm days.
