Infinity is’nt all it seems.

Things I learned today…
The infinite number of decimal numbers is larger than the infinite number of whole numbers.
Not even worth thinking about really…

So therefore one infinty can be bigger than another infinity.

infinity + 1 = infinity
infinity + infinity = infinity
Infinity – infinity = infinity or 1

For Ian ‘Taff’ Fairchild. A great memory. Laters my friend. You will be missed.
Best quote ever from a Welshman about Bedford ‘…and they call this a f*****g valley.’

Jawaharlal Nehru Camp

My very good friend Deepankar Vaidh with his wife and young daughter, outside of their home. It is two metres square, has no clean running water and no toilet. Water comes from a standpipe and the toilet is a communal shared with several hundred, maybe over a thousand, other residents. I had one of the best meals I’ve had and one of the most memorable evenings I’ve spent while at their home, as the sun set, neighbours came out onto their roofs and flew kites all around while huge golden dragonflies took to the skies also. It was magical.

Deepankar works very hard, usually more than one job and he is a very clever and able computer technician however because of his status and caste he doesn’t earn much. He tries to make as much money as possible so he can realise his dream – to move his family out of the slums and own his own meagre flat, it’s not much he wants really just a better start to life for his daughter than he has had.

He deserves it and so does his lovely family. I wish him luck in his dreams.

Action for Botton

I fear for Camphill Campus, Milton Keynes, where the Chrysalis Theatre is. I’m hoping this isn’t a trend.
How can this be a right thing to do if it is upsetting and making fearful the very people it is supposed to care for?
Career bloody charity management is just as bad as idiot management anywhere it seems.
