Praying for Paris

Praying for Paris

My thoughts go out to Paris and their victims from yesterday's (Friday 13th November 2015) disastrous shooting and bombing.

What has the world come to?

Last night, I watched the news about the Paris shootings and bombings that went on throughout the night. What a terrible thing to have happened. People were running for their lives in Paris last night. It was and is a sad time for everyone. Do you have anyone in Paris that you love? If so, get in touch them and pray that they are okay.

I am thinking of those that have been taken from us too soon. It is heartbreaking that the world has gone to hell like this. What is going on? How did these people get in to the city to do such a terrible thing?

There are people around us that cannot be trusted; Who are vicious and callous to innocent people. Who would do such a terrible thing in such a beautiful city as Paris? Paris will never be the same again after this...

So, let's pray for those that have been taken from their families...

A Talented Singer Song Writer Called Ben Brookes

I want to share a new singer/song writer called Ben Brookes here with you all today. He has written a new song called Asleep in Gallilee. The tune is catchy and could go far. 

Please listen to it. The song has been written with emotion and the words say it all. He is a talented writer.

Watch the video below. Ben Brookes sings another tune written by himself titled Treading Carelessly. Ben wrote it earlier this year. I think the song would do well in the charts today and it could well be a hit. It's a catchy tune! You won't be able to get it out of your head!

Check out his Facebook page here.

Watch the Video Above: Ben has also written another tune just recently titled Stories in the Rain. The video of him singing it was originally shared publicly on Facebook (check out his Facebook page above) and it has become popular amongst the Facebook population. It's a powerful tune and I think it was meant to be shared here on my blog. 

UPDATE: Check out more videos and his latest tune titled Look Through My Eyes.

UPDATE: Check out more bands and solo artists here

Hope you all enjoy it!

Thriller Live at the Lyric Theatre in London Was Amazing

I have finally seen Thriller Live at the Lyric Theatre in London and it was amazing!

Get tickets now for Thriller Live - Click below on the picture below.

Thriller Live is a two hour show about Michael Jackson and his music starting from the oldies to the latest hits. It’s a thrilling live performance with some great singers and dancers in it.

The show starts off with a young Michael Jackson performer singing some of the Jackson Five hits. I thought he did an incredible job performing all of them. The dancing and the seventies outfits were very colourful and entertaining.

Later, a female singer comes on stage to sing as Janet Jackson, but performing songs from Michael Jackson’s hits.  She had an outstanding singing voice and was very pleasant to listen to and watch.  All of the singers were just as good and gave an amazing and super performance on stage. The show was exciting and a joy to watch along with being very entertaining. I enjoyed all of it.

Photo credit: Thriller Live show taken at the Lyric Theatre
The dancing was incredible too. Most of the crew danced to all of Michael’s songs just like he was still alive.  The Michael Jackson look alike looked as if he really was Michael Jackson. For a minute there, I thought Michael Jackson had faked his death and was still alive performing on the Thriller Live stage like he had never passed away. His singing voice was perfect and so was his dance movements I thought.

There were some comically funny moments during the show when one of the dancers reached for people in the audience as a joke. I thought he was trying to catch the audience's attention to make them laugh. He was, also, an incredible dancer who knew his stuff on the dance floor.

So, if you love going to see a great show at the theatre and you haven’t seen Thriller Live yet, then I would definitely recommend getting tickets for this one.

I rate Thriller Live 9 out of 10 for a musical theatre show.

Have You Ever Tried the Lighterlife Diet?

Photo by Denise Larkin

The Lighterlife Diet is a weightloss plan who supply their own food. It consists of soups, milkshakes, dinners and bars along with breakfast meals, such as, porridge.

You usually can find someone in your area who will supply the food. They, also, give counselling on weight management and how to cope during your weightloss process.

I went to see someone recently about trying the diet. I was told you can lose weight quickly or slowly according to how much you want to lose.

Lighterlife, also, sell their foods in Superdrug in the UK. I bought a few products and used them during the 5:2 diet (this is where you eat lighterlife foods two days per week).

I would say that Lighterlife is more for people who need to lose a lot of weight. The food has all the vitamins you need in it too. This is important when dieting and if you want to do their total weight loss plan you can lose a lot. It's a hard diet to do, but one thing you cannot do is drink alcohol during the diet or you will find it harder to lose pounds.

If you are interested check out the Lighterlife website.

There are some great tunes that have made a successful impact the public lately.  I am most impressed with the following songs and music videos, because I have found I cannot get these tunes out of my head or because the videos have impressed me.

Here are some of those music videos and songs that I have found to be the most popular
so far.

One Direction

The first one is One Direction's new song called Steal My Girl.  Danny Devito is in the music video too.  It's worth a watch even if you are not a fan of One Direction.

Ella Henderson

The next song I am impressed with is Ella Henderson's song titled Ghost.  Ella Henderson did compete in the X Factor auditions and reached the live shows, but she got voted off early on.  She has made it in the music business and has achieved her success.  Watch her music video below of Ghost.

Sam Smith

I have found Sam Smith's voice very powerful that I have just not been able to get one of his songs 
out of my head.  This tune is called Stay With Me.  Watch the following video of Sam Smith singing this song.  I find this tune very powerful that hangs around in my head for hours.

A Drawing of Amy Winehouse

Photo credit & copyright : Denise Larkin - Drawing by James Larkin

My son drew the picture above of Amy Winehouse when he heard she had passed away. He loves drawing faces and he seems to enjoy it.

I remember when Amy Winehouse passed away three years ago. It was the anniversary of her death on Wednesday 23rd July. She died in her London home from accidental alcohol poisoning.

I was reading an article online about Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch Winehouse, revealing that he often speaks to his talented daughter spiritually.  He feels that she is standing next to him when he goes out onto the stage. He said that he can sense her presence around him.

In 2012, Mitch Winehouse wrote a biography called Amy: My Daughter. I think I would like to read it.

I can, also, feel relatives around me that I have lost over the years, especially my parents and my brother. I think they occasionally come to visit me.

Do you sense a presence around you of anyone that you have lost in the past?

Remembering 9/11 and My Visit to Ground Zero in New York City

Photo credit: Denise Larkin

I remember visiting Ground Zero a couple of years ago when I went on a break to New York city for 5 days. Has anyone else been to this place?

I remember how sad it was to see the names of all those people who were lost on this day thirteen years ago. It saddened my friends and I to see so many names at Ground Zero.

Photo credit: Denise Larkin

We walked around Ground Zero and read each name written on each of the pools that were built in place of the Twin Towers. It was an eerie feeling that swept over us all by just being there. We walked around the garden that was built nearby and at one point, I sat on a bench just to reflect on how such a tragic event must have hurt so many families that day.

On September 11th 2001, I was at my home at around lunch time. My husband worked for HSBC in London and had just moved into the new tower in Canary Wharf, London. He was on the 2nd floor, but I still worried. His office was eventually sent home that day. The whole thing was so tragic, I remember feeling sick to my stomach because of it. 

This day will never be forgotten!

Have You Done the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS

Photo credit: Denise Larkin - The river near Lakeside shopping mall in West Thurrock

Have you been seeing videos of the Ice Bucket Challenge on Facebook lately? Well, I have.

There are lots of them at the moment and even I have been challenged twice to do it. I have 24 hours to do it in front of a camera! I have sent my donation to ALS charity in the UK, but my brother told me that if I don't take up the challenge I should send ALS £100. Is that the deal here? What do others think of this challenge for charity?

I think it's great that people are donating to ALS, because they need the money for research and I suppose the Ice Bucket Challenge has made this possible. So, what do I do? Should I have a bucket of iced cold water thrown over my head and a video taken of myself doing it?

Let's be honest, I hate being on video and especially, if I am going to look like a wet cold fool on camera?

What are your thoughts of the Ice Bucket Challenge?

Have you done it yet?

Seeing the Judges at the X Factor UK 2014 Auditions was a Unique Experience

Read my next article all about the judges at the X Factor UK 2014 Auditions at the SSE Wembley Arena.

The judges were Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, Louis Walsh and Mel B.  Dermot O'Leary was also there.

My X Factor UK 2014 Experience

Photo credit: Denise Larkin (inside the SSE Wembley Arena)

I went to see the X Factor Auditions 2014 last Saturday 2nd August. I arrived at the SSE Wembley Arena as a guest sitting in the audience. It was a unique experience.

Photo credit: Denise Larkin
During the day, interviews of each act take place right outside the SSE Wembley Arena, which I got to see on this particular day when I went to pick up my tickets. I was surprised by some of them when I eventually saw them on stage afterwards. Some of them had outstanding performances and some were just not up to it at all.

I got to see Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, Mel B and Louis Walsh. I also got to see Dermot O'Leary who came on stage right at the beginning. He is the presenter of the show. He was back stage talking and questioning each act before they went on stage.

Photo credit: Denise Larkin

It was a great experience just to be there to see what goes on during auditions whilst the whole process is being filmed. The audience is a big part of the show, because the judges involve us and listen wisely to how we react to each singer or band that are auditioning. I even got to see what went on back stage from where I was sitting.

The process for X Factor UK 2014 is for each act to get a private audition in a room with the judges before they actually go to the SSE Wembley Arena for an audience audition.  So, I got to see all those acts that auditioned in London when I was at Wembley. After today (3rd August), the judges will no doubt move onto the next set of auditions in another city in the UK.
Photo credit: Denise Larkin

I had a great view of the stage and could see the judges clearly throughout the whole evening. Of course, we sat in the arena from 8.30 pm watching each act perform.  It was a crazy night with some great laughs and some hilarious comments from the judges, especially Simon Cowell. Auditions went on until 1 am in the morning. The filming process was hectic, as they needed to get as much as possible from each audition. Some acts sang at least three songs each just so the judges could see more of them.  Of course, this may not be shown on television when it does eventually get aired.

Do You See Faces in the Clouds?

Photo credit: Denise Larkin

We went out for the day to Southend-on-Sea, but the weather was very cloudy and it rained a little on and off. It has been very hot recently here in the UK, but it was quite refreshing to have cooler weather.

When I was in Southend-on-Sea, I took a few pictures and wanted to share them here. One of the photos I took has some strange looking faces in the clouds. 

Take a look at the picture above and the ones below.

Look closely and tell me what you see. I can see two faces in the
clouds looking down on us. One of the faces is a growling face of a
man and the other seems like it is a child's face. I didn't see this
until I looked through my photos today. What do you see?

I don't know why I can see these faces or what it means, but seeing something like this interests me. I don't know why I am seeing it. Could it be a message of some kind?  Could the faces be angels? What do you think?

A Fascinating Novel - Lady of Hay Written by Barbara Erskine

Photo credit: Denise Larkin

I have read a book written by Barbara Erskine titled Lady of Hay. I have read most of Barbara Erskine's novels, because they have such unique descriptions of historical settings within the storyline. Have you read any of her books?

Lady of Hay is Barbara Erskine's first published novel, which came out in 1986. Her second novel titled Kingdom of Shadows was a hit in my opinion. Kingdom of Shadows was the first book belonging to Barbara Erskine that I had ever read, as I was unable to obtain her first book anywhere at the time. Kingdom of Shadows had an unusual, gripping and amazingly intriguing story to it, which was set in Scotland. I rate it a 9 out of 10.

Lady of Hay is a chilling story about a a journalist named Jo. She investigates hypnotic regression. She has a regression hypnosis done on herself, which plunges her into the life of Maltida, Lady of Hay, who lived eight hundred years ago. The book goes back in time and we learn of Maltida's unhappy marriage and her troubled life of brutal treatment she received from King John.  Jo's life, it seems, is entwined with her past life of Matilda. The story goes on to reveal how Jo deals with her regression.

Rating: 9/10

Passing a Driving Test in the UK

Photo credit: Denise Larkin

Young people in England find it so hard these days to pass a driving test or at least my son did. He failed
three driving tests over the last two years since he has been learning to drive. Do you know anyone who has been trying to pass their driving test?

When my son was 18 years old, he started to learn to drive and when he was 20 he passed his theory test. After that he booked a driving test, but failed the first, second and third test, but he was still determined that he should pass.

So, we suggested that he buy a car to learn to drive in. He bought a seven year old car, which is a Renault Clio and started to drive it everywhere with someone sitting next to him (either myself or his Dad). This gave him so much more confidence. During his driving tests, his confidence was always so low and he would be terribly nervous.

He booked his fourth driving test, which was on Friday 25th April and he has now passed it. We were so relieved too and very happy for him. He is now 21 years old and he can now drive his own car without someone sitting next to him.

Do you know anyone learning to drive at present? How long did it take them to pass their test?
