Home-Movie

I took my two, my niece and sister to watch Home at the Odeon Cinema in Chatham this afternoon. It’s a pretty good film, and much better than I expected it to be. The kids seemed to enjoy themselves too, which is always good when spending money on them. If you have kids I would recommend taking them to see it before it leaves the cinema.

The plot as quoted from imdb.

When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people, he forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip who is on a quest of her own. Through a series of comic adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is all part of being human. And while he changes her planet and she changes his world, they discover the true meaning of the word HOME.

Have you seen it yet? What did you think of it? Did your children like it?

The Facebook lies

Last night I was browsing Facebook and noticed someone had posted the following image.

According to the image every 823 years there is a phenomenon that occurs where there are 5 Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and if you pass the image or at the very least the information on it according to Feng Shui you will receive good luck.

This lie that is making the rounds on Facebook is so easy to debunk is hardly worth doing, but I was bored and wanted to destroy it.

Lets start with Feng Shui. Feng Shui is something you do to help with the flow of energy through a house or apartment. It suggests arranging the furniture in a specific way to help channel the energy or Chi in a positive way to help. Help with what though I can’t say. I can honestly say I didn’t look into it that deeply!

Having 5 Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only happens every once 823 years. You can find this information out simply by looking at a calendar. Take May of this year for example. It has those exact same 5 Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays that this myth talks about.

May 2015

It’s a phenomenon. No it’s not! If there are 31 days in a month and the first of the month falls on a Friday then it is guaranteed that there will be 5 Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in the month. It’s really rather quite simple.

I still can’t get over that I am seeing people post utter crap like this. If you do some simple fact checking on the lies you find on Facebook you will find that they are nothing more than that. Lies. Myths. Fiction. Crap. Bupkis. Stop believing everything you see posted and the more people who adhere to this the less likely you are to see this crap posted again. It’s a win win situation!

Obviously there are many more other examples of crap that I see posted on Facebook, but I’m not going to post about those right now. However I do recommend that you visit http://www.snopes.com to see if you can find the ones that have you or your friends have fallen for.

At the woods

Today has been lovely and warm, so I thought it was a good idea to get the kids out and about down Cromer Woods and a little walk around Cromer Quarry in Sittingbourne, which is one of my favourite local places to walk. I took some photos while we were out and have decided to share them.

With any luck we will have another warm spell coming very soon, which will provide another chance to get the kids out and about again, as they loved being out today.

My Children

Finally after a long wait I have my kids staying with me for the next two weeks. I haven’t seen them in such a long time. They’ve changed that much since the last time I saw them in person. Both of them have become so tall! I’m keeping this post short and sweet because I want to get off here and back to them. I just want to give them cuddles constantly!
