Running for Mind (BLW Contributor)


Just a quick note, my blog is primarily based on personal views and experience, sometimes referring to research and some background information, with the aim of helping anyone who may be suffering, or know of anyone suffering from a mental health illness. I would welcome any advice and feedback on my blogs, or your personal thoughts on the topic.

This specific post describes my experience of the Great Birmingham Run – a non-specific run, where you can participate to raise money for any charity or cause that you have a special connection towards. Without any doubt, I knew I wanted to run for a mental health charity – which is why I chose Mind.

Saturday evening: 1 night till the big run… my nerves took over in the evening and I literally froze thinking of the run. I wandered how I would make it the full length of the half marathon…

Movies I Should’ve Watched Sooner: The Evil Dead (part 1)


Reffing Movies

Should I have watched The Evil Dead (1981) sooner?


Why has it taken so long to finally watch it?

After watching so many rehashes of the same story I didn’t feel as though there was a point. If this was supposed to be the film that invigorated a genre, will offer anything different to those that follow it?

Well did it offer anything different?

Unfortunately not. It was sadly obvious that a number of films have used this iconic model to base their stories on since it’s release. With movies such as Cabin in the Woods, Cabin Fever and obviously the 2013 remake of the same name existing as testimonies to this franchise, it was going to be difficult to see the product that has been remade a number of times as anything other than recycled.

Does this mean I didn’t enjoy The Evil Dead?

On the contrary to…

American Beer Day!!! – What’s your favorite Beer? – Types of Beer that are bad for you



(Credit: iStockphoto/Stratol)

There are more than 2,100 breweries that manufacture beer in the United States. They range in size from industry giants to brew pubs and microbreweries.

  • The U.S. produced 196 million barrels of beer in 2009.
  • The U.S. consumes roughly 20 US gallons of beer per capita annually.
  • In 2008, the United States was ranked sixteenth in the world in per capita consumption, while total consumption was second only to China.
  • Prohibition in the early twentieth century caused nearly all American breweries to close.
  • After prohibition was repealed the industry had consolidated into a small number of large-scale breweries.
  • The majority of the new breweries in the U.S. are small breweries and brewpubs, who, as members of the Brewers Association, are termed “craft breweries” to differentiate them from the larger and older breweries.
  • The most common style of beer produced by the big breweries is American lager.
  • Most of the smaller breweries, which were founded in the 1980′s, produce a range of styles.
  • Beer styles originating in the United States include:
    American pale ale, Pennsylvania porter, American IPA, steam beer, amber ale, cream ale and Cascadian dark ale.

Drifting Apart (BLW Contributor)

A Momma's View

Image result for image expat

The following post was written over a year ago for another expat blog. My feelings in this regard have not changed although we’ve been back earlier this year to the “motherland”. It actually only got stronger. I don’t belong there anymore. There’s nothing that pulls me back. Of course I would love to have my friends around, catch up with them. Other than that, there is truly nothing in me that misses living in Switzerland.

I find it interesting. I would have never imagined that the “split up” would be so final. I could have never imagined that I would not miss living in Switzerland. But the cord is cut and it’s such a good feeling.

The interesting thing is that even with your friends, things are no longer the same. You are not spending time together anymore. You don’t go through the same things, you don’t read the same…

Movies I should’ve watched sooner: Blade Runner


Reffing Movies

Should I have watched Blade Runner sooner?


As a fan of 80s Sci-Fi, why has it taken so long to finally watch?

There has never been an opportunity before now to watch it. It was much like putting the bins out in a way. You know it needs to be done, you just sometimes can’t find the motivation to get up and drag it to the side of the road.

So, does that mean I enjoyed Blade Runner or did I consider it a chore?

I’ve always had a soft spot for dystopian future movies made during the 80s so this was always going to attract my interest once I start watching it. The set design is both typical and beautiful and the story is simple enough to follow.

If this were a contest, how would Blade Runner score?

The story is sharp, the characters have real definition and…
