Words from a quiet corner
They will kill children if it suits them.
Mothers, fathers and brothers too.
They will hide behind their gold-encrusted palaces
As the children gasp for air, for life itself.
And they will sneer at the words of justice
Which threaten their evil lust.
They will shop in the streets of London and New York
As servants bow and scrape.
And mark my words they will fall and burn in my time
And be flushed away by those they would rape.
For just as the ways of any godless world are theirs,
So are mine.
And they will know justice in my time.
How a bullet feels.
How terror is the only partner towards
The shores of timeless godless eternity.
How useless are their towers of gold and marble
And friends in power.
For they shall perish too.
Hung drawn quartered and flushed from history.
Like the scum they are.
Because it is right.
And he was the finest wordsmith
Because he was so honest
And perfectly educated by the
Breathe of peat and heather
And wild Atlantic winds
He had do other purpose than
To discover, to fabricate to engineer
The countless joys of how words can combine
To stop you in your tracks
And trigger pleasure of an unknown
Kind. And kind he was too
In his glory mixing and matching
The language he was born within
Careful concoctions of literary perfection
To be judged by any open mind who understood
The times, the timbre the tempo
And the depth of his airy artful skills
His choice of words, his subjects his reasoning
All took us up there with him
Floating, high above the mundane
And back again
To where the children play
And the cattle groan
Heavy with milk
To that place where simple coalmen
Once were men.
T’was his sod
He our gold.

I am a journalist who specialises in the investment market. I actually spend little time there since while working for the Financial Times of London, I found out just how corrupt the markets and the mainstream media (MSM) were. Back in 2008, as a little bit of an insider, I predicted that the price of gold – then $700 an ounce – would hike eventually closer to $2000 an ounce. I gave no timeline as I am not a psychic, but my prediction was pretty spot on it transpires, nudging $2000 just before it popped in April 2013. As others will tell you this a was a scam to relocate paper money wealth to the hunger demons who own Wall Street. And they succeeded. But now you know better. This is a buying opportunity because gold will go to $3000 an ounce in a much shorter run that it took to got to $2000 from $700. Believe me! Buy now and read this to be smarter and ready to act. After you read what Bill has to say, echoing many other brilliant analysts, you will know that physical gold is the only way to preserve any kind of wealth given what is coming for the markets in the US and Europe.
Just arrived from Thailand, my suitcase weighs a ton stuffed as it is with winter clothes. But although it’s totally chilly by comparison with a normal day in Asia, it seems to me it was twice as cold the last time I lived in Aberdeen. Then central heating was something you only saw on the TV or benefited from in schools and corporate headquarters, and I remember the nation was shocked when the price of coal burst through the pound-a-bag barrier! You would wake up in the morning with frost on the inside of your bedroom windows as well as the outside!
And it was often cold enough back then to freeze the balls off the proverbial brass monkey!
Write and edit with online readers needs and habits in mind. Web usability studies show that readers tend to skim over sites rather than read them intently. They also tend to be more proactive than print readers or TV viewers, hunting for information rather than passively taking in what you present to them.
Think about your target audience. Because your readers are getting their news online, chances are they are more interested in Internet-related stories than TV viewers or newspaper readers, so it may make sense to put greater emphasis on such stories. Also, your site potentially has a global reach, so consider whether you want to make it understandable to a local, national or international audience, and write and edit with that in mind.

Since their first album – the classic Drifting To Valhalla – did so well on the net since its release in 2009, the band Billy The Mountain have taken a little time to produce the second album Tides of Mercy. This latest work of 14 songs also promises to do some serious business across the Web, with the band’s fan base growing by the month as word gets out that it is high time this ‘cult’ band was getting its amazing music to a wider global audience – as if 300,000 fans around the world was not enough to qualify them as a ‘global’ phenomenon! A truly great band and two great albums…watch as they really DO go global!
