Sadly I have now and much against my wishes seperated from the love of my life my wonderful +Jenny McGowan​.
This also means I am now homeless and thanks to RBS withdrawing my overdraft at short notice without money.
Add DWP being slow and bureaucratic and I could be driven to despair.
The only organisation to be due any credit for a job well done is Fife Council and their homelessness officer, who has been a hero, and a big thank you to all the staff at Trust in Fife, Valley Accommodation Unit, for all the help and support I have received.
I may be at rock bottom in every sense but the few good people have saved my life or what little life I am left with

+Ray A I got into a Homeless unit via Fife Council and the support staff recomended me to Frontline Fife and Fife Housing Association. I have been fortunate that Fife Council has a good homeless policy and system so that where possible no one goes without shelter of some sort and the staff of all the depts have been fantastic support. the system can be slow but it works. just so very glad to be making progress.

Please +giffgaff​ could you please stop sending me emails asking me to activate the sim card that you have failed to deliver. I have tried to find a working contact link on your website to no avail. If you have posted one already, as you claim then your postal service has lost it. Would be grateful if you could send a replacement. You have my details on file under the same email address as my G+ profile. Your customer service is not up to the job it seems.

Thank you +Royal Bank of Scotland Plc​ after having an overdraft of the huge sum of £300 for over 15 years you have decided to withdraw it just at the moment my income hits rock bottom for a short time. I tried and tried to speak to a human being and all I have got is a moron in Manchester who tried to tell me I had called the wrong number as it was a Nat West call centre, eventualy it became clear he had no clue or authority to act. So I go to appointment at branch with what turned out to be another silly youngsters with no authority or interest. I asked to speak to manager. No she's off sick. So after a lifetime of banking with RBS I am treated like dirt and may move to another bank. Morally, ethically and humanity as well as customer service seem to have been made redundant at +Royal Bank of Scotland Plc​ all for the sake of £300

This is scary despite the inane attempt to show war room commitee process which was ruined by it being populated with people who were plainly more interested in theire own image than reality, it would have been better to have had actors following a script than than the unrealistic rubbish that this was. The scariest thing about this is that it sent alarm bells ringing for me, because I see a propagandic agenda setting here, for a plan of some sort to create a situation in the baltic to bring this to reality. we shall see. I hope I am wrong but bear in mind USA and UK Governments would not be averse to a situation where a confrontation with Russia was escalated to open warfare, I am sure they would deny it but I am not so sure.

Just Had a look at this, makes it all sound very respectable, and that should scare us all, because the image projected is all fluffy and cosy and warm, not the cold ruthless, heartless world that it really is. it is scary to know what the truth is and see the public image as portrayed here.

Interesting if true.
 
Hi. I found this quite inspiring. However, I'm wondering is the facts given correct? Thank you.

In 1923, nine of the wealthiest people in the world met at Chicago's Edge Water Beach Hotel .
Their combined wealth, it is estimated, exceeded the wealth of the government of the United States at that time. These men certainly knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth. Attending the meeting were the following men:
1. The president of the largest steel company,
2. The president of the largest utility company,
3. The president of the largest gas company,
4. The president of the New York Stock Exchange,
5. The president of the Bank of International Settlements,
6. The greatest wheat speculator,
7. The greatest bear on Wall Street,
8. The head of the World's greatest monopoly &
9. A member of President Harding's cabinet.
That's a pretty impressive line-up of people by anyone's yardstick.
Yet, 25 years later, where were those nine industrial giants?
Let’s examine what happened to them 25 years later. 
1. The President of the then largest steel company (Bethlehem Steel Corp), Charles M Schwab, lived on borrowed capital for five years before he died bankrupt.
2. The President of the then largest gas company, Howard Hubson, went insane.
3. One of the greatest commodity traders (Wheat Speculator), Arthur Cutten, died insolvent.
4. The then President of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, was sent to jail.
5. The member of the US President’s Cabinet (the member of President Harding's cabinet), Albert Fall, was pardoned from jail just to be able to go home and die in peace.
6. The greatest “bear” on Wall Street, Jesse Livermore committed suicide.
7. The President of the then world’s greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, committed suicide.
8. The President of the Bank of International Settlement, Leon Fraser, committed Suicide.
9. The president of the largest utility company, Samuel Insull, died penniless.
What they forgot was how to "make" life while they got busy making money!
Money in itself is not evil; it provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, clothes for the needy. Money is only a medium of exchange.
We need two kinds of education:
a) One that teaches us how to make a living
and
b) One that teaches us how to live.
..........
There are many of us who are so engrossed in our professional material life that we neglect our family, health, social and most important spiritual responsibilities.
If asked why we do this, we would reply that "We are doing it for our family".
Yet, our kids are sleeping when we leave home. They are sleeping when we come back home!! Twenty years later, we’ll turn back, and they’ll all be gone, to pursue their own dreams and their own lives.
Without water, a ship cannot move. The ship needs water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will face existential problems. What was once a means of living for the ship will now become a means of destruction.
Similarly we live in a time where earning is a necessity but let not the earning enter our hearts, for what was once a means of living will surely become a means of destruction for us as well.
So take a moment and ask yourself………. 
Has the water entered my ship?

sorry about the source. There is an almost complete lockdown in French media. None of these riots across the country are being reported.
Masked youths marched on the streets of Paris, letting off smoke bombs, clashing with police and vandalising banks, during protests over legislation that may put an end to the 35 hour working week in France.

So Google are you trying to make your company the most hated Corporation in the world, because with this sort of thing added to your Tax Dodging antics, you have gone from a company I would have been proud to work for, slowly heading for the point where I and many others are of the opinion that I would never have anything to do with you if I could avoid it. Your success is based on popularity and you are destroying it very rapidly
