Words To Live By – Tony Benn

I haven’t posted for a few days as I’ve been in Scotland visiting family. A bit tired and a lot of work to catch up on now but I thought I’d share a quick quote here, advice given to Tony Benn by his father:

Say what you mean, mean what you say, do what you said you’d do, and don’t attack people personally.

Now if everyone could act on that, the world would be a lot better place. Anybody else got words of wisdom they like to live by?

    Hola! I’ve been reading your weblog for a while
    now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you
    a shout out from Huffman Texas! Just wanted to
    mention keep up the excellent job!
    I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A few of my blog visitors have complained about my
    blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

    I am curious to find out what blog system you are working with?
    I’m having some minor security issues with my latest website and I would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any solutions?
    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
    up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme
    of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to
    get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!
    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your site? My blog is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would really benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Many thanks!
    Hi there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thanks, I appreciate it!
    Superb blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of
    online community where I can get feed-back from other knowledgeable
    people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Bless you!
    Hey there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your blog posts.
    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that
    deal with the same topics? Thanks!
    Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger,
    and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have created some nice methods and
    we are looking to swap solutions with others, please shoot me an e-mail if
    interested.
    Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d
    absolutely love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back
    to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested.

    Thanks!
    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this
    website could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Awesome blog!
    Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from
    somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you
    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.

    Thanks
    With havin so much content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

    My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other
    blogs? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss and would
    really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would appreciate your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

    Hi! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I came to check it out.
    I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will
    be tweeting this to my followers! Excellent blog and excellent style and
    design.
    Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on
    everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?

    There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Bless you!
    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong
    none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating
    it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in
    hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

    It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding
    your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will share
    this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
    Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait
    to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..
    Anyhow, good blog!
    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours
    and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be
    interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Terrific blog by the way!
    Currently it seems like WordPress is the best blogging platform available
    right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on
    your blog?
    Terrific post but I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this
    subject? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more. Appreciate it!
    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m
    using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!
    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks a lot!
    Howdy! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on. You have done a outstanding job!
    Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at
    alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hi there! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds
    me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this.
    I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.
    Many thanks for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking
    about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to share it with someone!
    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
    structure of your site? Its very well written;
    I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
    2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of
    spam responses? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can
    suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.
    This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!
    Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after checking through some of the post I realized
    it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!
    Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group? There’s
    a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate
    your content. Please let me know. Thanks
    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers
    Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where
    to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
    Hi! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a
    theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

    If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Appreciate it!
    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it
    up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later. All the best
    I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to know where u
    got this from. thank you
    Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!
    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it
    in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Hey there are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m
    trying to get started and set up my own. Do you need
    any coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Hey there this is kind of of off topic but
    I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
    Howdy! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if
    that would be okay. I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.
    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?
    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get
    my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very
    internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to find out
    if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading very slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
    Hi! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone!
    Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts!
    Keep up the great work!
    Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but
    after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyhow, just wanted to say wonderful blog!
