Bloggers PhotoHi it is time i introduced myself, I was born in Skipton Yorkshire, England, and still have a accent belonging to my birth place. in 1966 my wife Elaine and i and our two sons moved to New Zealand, where the boys were raised. then we  moved on to the city of Perth  in Western Australia.
After 45 years away we both decided to have a move back to the yorkshire dales where we were raised. leaving our children and grandchildren in what i consider the best places on the planet. (NZ-OZ)
Our reason for the move back to the uk was to be able to discover our back yard so to speak, and we have a desire to go to europe, especially scandinavia and germany.
 I would like to say how much i'm enjoying my trip here on soup, and really loved the poems posted, my bigest problem being time, i always seem to be catching up, being able only to spend two to three days on here, even then with limited hours, so please forgive me if my comments seem later than most.  I also love football (soccer) Newcastle United in England being my team, then music, all kinds but mainly Rock 'n' Roll, i'm  a avid record collector, especially old vinyl LP's of the Fifties. my favourite poet is W. H Davies, along with a few on soup here, I do not get a lot of time to read these days, but my favourite Author is Dennis Wheatley, also i love  the the Bronte Sisters, being raised only 10 miles from Haworth, one gets a real feel for their literature, when one visits the area.   Harry

    Often it is not the big things but the small things that we may deem insignificant, but to someone it may be a turning point. I have such a story, perhaps I should post it too. Sending my love and hugs xxx

    We don't hear enough of all the good that people do. And when one good deed takes place, it inspires others to do good. I have witnessed more kindness in the last several months on a personal level, than ever before in my life. My daughter and grandson have been receiving such love and acts of kindness since my son-in-law passed away suddenly 2 months ago. Too many times to count gifts of food and gifts have been brought to her house, and annoymous envelopes of money, and gift cards have been left in her mailbox..which has been difficult to track down and thank these lovely people. As our thank you, my family has taken my grandson on a "little acts of kindness mission", passing forward the love.

    A beautiful blog, Harry. reminds me of A NY passerby who captured a random act of kindness. On Nov. 14, NYPD officer made headline, while on duty in Times Square. The story goes, a female seen the officer go up an older homeless man without shoes sitting on 42nd Street, he left and then returned with a pair of $100 boots from a nearby store. The officer melted many icy New Yorkers' hearts online and TV. espeically my heart. Wish I could post the picture on this blog. The officer had no idea someone would take his act of kindness to the media. SANDY

    I really appreciate your blog Harry... God bless this man and his wife... sometimes we must never give up, ~always be considerate no matter if we do not receive thanks in return.. I had to learn the hard way... I think it is time to let the guard down again... xox~PD

    Good Morning Harry... AM stopping by to say hi! I have not been here since I posted the blog for my granddaughter... ((Wow imagine these 5 whole days, seems like a life time)) anyways.... it felt nice staying off my computer these last 5 days... However, I scanned the soup and noticed I really did not miss a thing.. Well I did miss my friends here... In which I miss you and many others so so so much here at the soup. By the way *Now that My Little EZZELLE is doing SUPER :-).... I feel like making things happen for me here on the soup and life in general. Enough about me :-( ... what attract me to the soup right now, was the title on your blog. I have been here with little support. Your little story here got me thinking about all the things I take for granted and the negative aroma that follows me out here. Harry my dear sweet friend I wish to contribute to my community more than I did this past year. You have inspired a notion inside my bone... I will donate $250.00 to the Wesley Community Center for children. I will also donate all the unneeded toys and unneeded can foods... the reason for this: Harry, today I sat and shed some tears, because I have been greedy taking from the people that love me, just to feed places who love taking my money. I think I learned my lesson today. ~/~ crossing my fingers right now... Boy! I wish I had a mentor right now... Okay... I have to brag to you... cuz, it's been a while since you last heard from me... LOVE~ LINDA
