The emotional whirlpool continues to be on its full spin cycle. Although I have soldiered on with the Manpedia preparations it has had to take a back seat to more pressing issues. Those being real life. I guess what’s really been made apparent to me of late is the illness of dementia and how it takes the life and identity away from people. It is such a haunting illness. Now please forgive me if I offend anyone that has prolonged experience in dealing with this as I can only refer to my own personal and very limited experience and understanding. … Continue reading EDITORS WEEK

I spent a little time this week over at the MI5 building in Vauxhall. I gazed at it’s colossal presence with awe and wonder. It made me consider the workload here at Manpedia and how at some point that building was under construction, frail and exposed to the elements, but once the work went in to it and it was finished it stands proud, dominating the nearby landscape. So as the year end draws ever closer the planned remodelling of Manpedia continues to take place behind the scenes. The hoisting it up from shared articles and memes to original content … Continue reading EDITORS WEEK

What a week. Family and life in general is very much at the forefront of my mind currently. Midweek my partner lost her father. It has been on the cards for a little while now but of course the reality of the event can never truly be prepared for. Regardless of what has gone before losing a parent is nothing short of devastating and sitting there in his room as she tended to him it brought back some all too familiar memories of my fathers passing. It was spookily similar. We sit there, helpless. Nothing we can say or do … Continue reading EDITORS WEEK

This week parenting came to the forefront of my mind as I am now the proud owner of a 14 year old. You here virtually every single person that has a child say it that time goes so fast and my god it does.

I don’t know if she remembers her mother and I together, revelations with her telling she remembers getting her ears pierced would now lead me to believe she does remember because that memory she … Continue reading EDITORS WEEK

It’s never been lost on my how important good friends are and I consider myself very lucky to have the friends that I do. We all have ‘friends’ but there is always those that are more than that, people with a deeper connection and stronger purpose. This is usually and should be a small circle, a core of friends that know you, understand you and taking all that into consideration still tolerate having you around! Speaking for myself and with my friends, I love them. We all bring something different to the table but are all on exactly the same … Continue reading EDITORS WEEK

Every generation says it, it appears to be a problem that remains linear to our existence. The world is becoming quite simply not a nice place to live. All of the phrases get spun, the worlds gone mad, not in my day etc but I think truth be told this is just life. Humans, for the line share are selfish. We want what we want and can quite easily overlook the thoughts or needs of our fellow man. Now of course this isn’t to say that humans aren’t amazing and among us they are incredible people doing incredible things which … Continue reading EDITORS WEEK
