Crippen reveals a suspected DWP cover-up — Crippen Cartoons

The Department for Works and Pensions (DWP) has been accused of “a cover-up” after shredding around 50 reports into suicides that were linked to benefits being stopped. DWP officials have admitted that the files were shredded, but that this had been due to data protection laws stating that all data collected before 2015 should not […]

Be Still #BeStill #God

This song has been on very heavy rotation on my Spotify playlist this week and i’ve grabbed a YouTube video so everyone can see it (it has CC too).

Lets not forget in these times of difficulty to be still before God in our quiet time. Here are some verses:

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Psalms 37:7

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalms 46:10

In the NIV the command to be ‘be still’ is written 8 times – its two words but its not insignificant God tells us 8 times!

In the Gospel of Mark Jesus calms a storm and tells it to ‘be still’ – God has the power to calm the storms we face daily too.

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!” Mark 4:39-41

I’m aware that its much easier for me to ‘be still’ for a couple of minutes than it is for those of you with children at home or those working supporting others at this time. Maybe you can just take a minute or two on for you and God just before you go to sleep?

I would really encourage you to try and fit in some time to ‘be still’.

Finally I have found this post very helpful in my quiet times on the theme of being still before God.

Quick Post re: #SuperNova crash #A11y

For anyone experiencing the SuperNova bug that causes your computer to crash after waking from sleep EVERY TIME! I have found a fix… it is imperfect but works ok.

  • On waking your computer if you can get the Supernova control panel up.
  • Hit Alt+F4 this is the keyboard command to force quit a programme in windows 10.
  • A dialog box then comes up asking if you are sure you want to quit press enter.
  • Wait a couple of seconds and Supernova quits.
  • Your computer now works.
  • Relaunch Supernova!
  • TaDa!

Personally this particular crash has been driving me nuts!

Originally brought this to clean my Nintendo switch controllers and device when they get grubby but it’s coming in very handy. I just cleaned my laptop, wireless mouse, iPad, phone, TV remote and landline phone. It’s a great product from @game_uk you just turn off the device spray some of this stuff onto a lint free cloth and wipe. One bottle lasts a long time too… obviously I don’t know if @gameuk.official still have it in stock but would really recommend. Also worth noting it’s not alcohol based to make it safe for devices so it’s not clear to me from the label how effective it will be against COVID 19 BUT surely it’s better to at least reduce the numbers of bacteria. #CleanGadgets #AntiBacterial #GameUK #covid_19 (Image description: a close up of a spray bottle with a white label that reads: game wear essentials antibacterial spray)

Been wearing my unicorn Hoody today and I love it I have been resisting the urge to walk around with my hood up! I don’t actually wear it very often because I really love it and you can’t buy them anymore and it’s basically white which is not a good colour for me to wear. (Image description: a selfie of me taken close-up I am wearing my hood up my hood has pointed ears and a unicorn horn ) #Unicorn #UnicornHoody #UnicornObsessed

People sometime struggle to understand how close to the sea/river I live and how INCREDIBLY windy it is! I give you the twinkling lights of a cruise ship going out visible between the trees… sorry my back door was in the picture there wasn’t time to take it again, they move quite fast. I feel very blessed to live so close to the water. #CruiseShip (Image description: picture taken at bight to the left side of the image is the white of my UPVC back door. A few meters away are trees and bushes all without leaves illuminated by the camera flash. In the distance barely visible are some white clusters of lights.)
