Recipe for Victory...
Literally, a recipe that led to victory! Or more accurately, three recipes.
Hucknall Central Methodist Church have a men's group who organise a family "Chilli and fireworks" evening each November. Jacket potatoes are accompanied by any number of different chillies that are made by men from the church. To spice things up a little (see what I did there?!) it's turned into a competition.
For two years in a row, I have entered chillies and have walked away with a prize.
Here are the recipes I went with.
Dystopia: "Day Three..."
Chapter three of my fictional work.
Chapter one and chapter two are available to read if you need to catch up
Dystopia: "Day Two..."
Chapter two of my trying my hand at fiction...
This is assuming you've read "Dystopia: 'Day One...'"
An ice-breaker made to encourage young people to mingle at a District-wide gathering today. Upward of 80 young people and some leaders playing at once. Seemed to do the job.
There are plenty of these templates out there, but none of them quite seemed to be what I needed for a mixed group of young people, so I made my own. Feel free to steal/amend accordingly!
Rules are simple:
1. You can only use yourself once, in the box marked "You";
2. Each box has to have a different person signing their own name in it;
3. No lying.

Dystopia: "Day One..."
Here's a little something I've started.
I'm not sure it's really my thing, but I decided to try my hand at fiction.
Over the next few weeks I'll upload the opening chapters of a dystopian piece I've started.
Be gentle with me!
It's a first-person diary account of a man who becomes obsessed with the notion that he is the central character of a story he doesn't know the plot to. He is fixated with dystopian fantasies and reads himself into the plot. The diary starts as therapy following his release from an asylum, as he is believed to be recovering.
The wife and I have been re-watching Chuck of late, and we've just started the last disc of the last season.
If you've not watched it, you should. Simple, funny, entertaining, nerdy and clever. The premise revolves around the intersect, a super computer that is capable of being uploaded into the human brain. It bestows the person who downloads it with secret knowledge and information from the combined databases of the CIA and NSA. Later updates enable the bearer to know martial arts, gun mastery, languages and other random skills.
Remarcable is one man blogging about Youth Work, Theology, Family, Life and those other random things that come to mind.
