INTERVIEW ABOUT AUTISM WITH ILLONA AND PETER METCALFE

I understand that you have brought up an autistic child – can you tell me a bit about autism?                       

(Illona) Autism is a condition where a person has deficits in communication, imagination and social issues – they lack interaction with other people. If people have two or more of these deficits, they are categorised as being autistic. Our son Aiden has deficits in all three areas so he’s unable to imagine himself in someone else’s position – but having said this, when he was a young child he had periods where he thought he was Peter Pan and he actually fell off of a banister and hurt his head.

A HEARTWARMING STORY FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

one armed teenagerA 14 year old girl decided to learn karate despite the fact that she had lost her left arm in a devastating car accident. The girl was doing well, so she couldn’t understand why, after six months of training the karate teacher had taught her only a single move.

“Teacher” the girl finally said, “Shouldn’t I be learning more moves?”

“This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you’ll ever need to know,” her teacher replied.

Not quite understanding, but believing in her teacher, the girl kept training.

from-the-horses-mouthMiracle?

 

Father O’Malley was driving down to Boston when he got stopped for speeding in Medford. The highway patrol officer smelled alcohol on the priest’s breath and then saw an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.

He said, “Father, have you been drinking?”

“Only water”, replied Father O’Malley.

The policeman asked, “Then how come I can smell wine?”

The priest looked at the bottle and said, “Good Lord! He’s done it again”.

HEBDEN BRIDGE WOMAN TALKS ABOUT HER WORK IN FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

INTERVIEW WITH A WOMAN WHO LIVES OUTSIDE HEBDEN BRIDGE

chrisCan you tell me a bit about yourself? I’m not married, I have a long-term partner called Murray and we have got a son called Ruben who is thirteen and has just started in year 9 at school.

Where do you live? I live outside Hebden Bridge at Hardcastle Crags.

What do you do for a living? My first job is working for an organisation called CLOVER LEAF – it provides advocacy support for people who use social care services; so we work with disabled people, older people or sometimes with people who have mental health issues. We aim to give them a voice and a say in the decisions that affect their lives and the support they receive. We also go to meetings with them but we don’t go to court with them as we are not legal advocates.

So in effect you act as a voice for vulnerable people? Yes, but we do also encourage them to be independent.

MORE NOT VERY SERIOUS STARS FROM THE HORSE”S MOUTH

from-the-horses-mouthMY NOT VERY SERIOUS STARS

Scorpio 24 Oct – 22 Nov

A man with muscles tries to impress you by his physique but remember pumping iron is not a talent and anyone can do it if they want to. A mouth organ may come into your possession.

Sagittarius 23 Nov – 21 Dec

The colour blue may prove to be lucky for you this month even if you are colour-blind. It’s not a good time to move house unless you are getting married in which case it will be fine.

Capricorn 22 Dec – 20 Jan

It is a good time to dump a boring astrologer friend who should have seen it coming anyway. A woman with a birthmark on her face will bring you some very good news.

Aquarius 21 Jan – 19 Feb

This month a new toy may give you hours of pleasure but don’t tell any of your friends about it as they will only want to borrow it. An advert on T.V. may inspire you to take up more physical exercise and perhaps join a gym.

Pisces 20 Feb – 20 Mar

Someone may leave you a substantial amount of money but don’t squander it like a fool on people who aren’t really your friends. Don’t be dressed to kill but freezing to death.

NEWS ABOUT AMMA FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

AmmaAmma:

I was privileged and blessed to gain immense insight into the nature of divine love by a meeting with the Hindu Holy Woman called Amma who ritually takes on Kali and becomes Goddess incarnate. I met her on her visit to London, when a number of individuals within the ethnography attended, who were her devotees. Amma becomes the Goddess Kali in Devi Bhava Darsan. She imparts the unforgettable essence of unconditional love to her devotees, who approach her on their knees to be hugged by her.

MORE CHRISTIANITY FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH

jesusWHO KILLED JESUS?

Anonymous

When considering who was responsible for the death of Jesus it is easy to point
at finger at them, and them, and them……………………….

So I start by pointing a finger at the Sadducees, Pharisees and Herodians.
It was, after all, to the advantage of the Sadducees, Pharisees and Herodians
that Jesus should die. He was becoming so popular with the general public that
he was threatening the fabric of society. Except for Jesus everything was going
well. He was the thorn in the flesh.

I move on to point a finger at Annas and Caiaphas.
At a meeting of the Sanhedrin, which was the Jewish Council authoritative in
both religious and secular matters, the High Priest, Caiaphas, had stated that
it was to their “advantage that one man should die for the people, rather than
that the whole nation should perish.” (John 11:50). Caiaphas was not saying that
Jesus deserved death but that it would be convenient if he were to die. Such was
Jesus’ hold on the people that the Sanhedrin had become frightened both of the
people and of Jesus.
