Saudi Cleric Bans Snowmen.

A Saudi Arabian religious cleric has banned the building of a snowman in the wintry north because it “promotes ‘lustiness’ and eroticism.” All I can say is if you tried making love to a snowman you will most likely get frostbite in your nether regions.

No Snowmen or Women

The prominent Saudi Arabian cleric, Sheikh Mohammed Saleh al-Munajjid, when asked on a religious website if it was permissible to build a snowman replied, “It is not permitted to make a statue out of snow, even by way of play and fun.” He said that to build a snowman was to create an image of a human being, and this action was considered sinful under strict Sunni religious law.

He wrote, “God has given people space to make whatever they want which does not have a soul, including trees, ships, fruits, buildings and so on.”

Needless to say, the ruling did not go down well with some followers who poked fun at it. One posted a photo of a man in formal Arab garb holding the arm of a “snow bride” wearing a bra and lipstick. “The reason for the ban is fear of sedition,” he wrote. Another complained, “People are looking for a fatwa (religious ruling) for everything in their lives, and clerics want to interfere in everything in the lives of others through a fatwa.”

He did however have his supporters, one of whom wrote, “May God preserve the scholars, for they enjoy sharp vision and recognise matters that even Satan does not think about.”

I guess its a case of ‘different strokes for different folks’.

It’s that time of the year when we can expect snow and more importantly, black ice. Here are some of the crazy antics people get up to when driving in such conditions. To finish off, some tips on how to drive on ice and snow.

You have to wonder how some of these people ever got a driving licence

And finally, a little advice of how to cope in winter driving.

Good luck to all if you have to drive in such conditions.

The Old Are Dying of Cold

Posted in Britain, Conservative Party, England, Environment, Europe, Health, Old Age Pensioner, Senior Citizen, UK with tags , , , , , on 29/11/2011 by floroy1942

It is indeed sad to read accounts of the callous attitude of many towards the old folks these days. They obviously do not think that one day they too will grow old, and may also suffer the same humiliation and despair that faces many of our senior citizens today. You may well ask what brought this on, and I will tell you.

Old and Cold! - Should This Be?

I was somewhat dismayed to read in the english news of the past week, that an estimated 180 pensioners died of cold in their own homes every day during last winter. They died because they could not afford to heat their homes sufficiently to stay alive.

Britain had a harsh winter last year and it will by no means be that last, for with global warming upsetting weather patterns around the world, it is more likely to increase. Does this mean then that as soon as you become an old age pensioner you will not last out the winter?

Winter 2010-2011

Throughout the period a total of 25,700 people died because of the cold weather, an estimated 85% of whom were over sixty-five. Apart from the weather extremes, the constantly rising price of energy and a low income are making many families, and in particular the old, choose between putting food on the table or keeping warm. This should not be happening in the 21st century!

Thank God For Someone Who Cares

We all trumpet the virtues of our ‘Caring Society’ and our Welfare State, but people are still dying needlessly of something as basic as cold! No other European country has such a winter mortality rate due to the inability to keep warm, even though it is often much colder than in the UK.

Part of the problem is also that very many old people live in houses built by the Victorians, which have little or no insulation measures installed. Britain has been very slow to act on this important issue, which will cost us dear in the years to come as more weather changes take effect.

Home Alone?

I am sure most of these poor old people have children, but such is the self-centred attitude of many these days, that they can’t be bothered to do anything to alleviate the suffering of the ones who brought them into the world so long ago.

Winter is Coming

It seems few these days feel any obligation to look after the old folks, except perhaps for volunteer organizations dedicated to the task and professional carers, in fact many see them as an embarrassment which is even more disgusting. So if you have elderly parents who are living on the poverty line, take some time out to visit them, invite them over for Christmas and at least make them feel that somebody cares.

Make sure they are warm and fed this winter and don’t become a statistic, even if the cost comes out of your own pocket, for it may well be your turn at some time in the future.
