Improving my relationship with my father

Guys.I am 27. Since my parents split up 17 years ago my relationship with my Dad has never been the same. I talk to him perhaps once a week and see him maybe twice a year. However, all the affection has gone. Our meetings are very civil but I don't see him as someone "safe" that I could share my problems with.He remarried about 8 years ago and now takes much more interest in his new extended family than the relationship he has with me and my Sister. I can understand people moving on and he did…See More

A Night at the Honkey Tonk

Gents.I live in Liverpool, England. A great party town with plenty of places to go out, drink and just have a good time. Recently, I have been reading about Honkey Tonk bars, probably after listening to too much Country and watching too much Justified.As an outsider, these places seem like an absolutely fanctasic night out.So I am asking what your experiences are, what is the atmosphere like? what are the drinks? and the women like?Clubs in the UK are quite flat. There is a strange paradox…See More

Life Lessons I have Learned From Playing Cricket

Posted on May 10, 2011 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

Cricket out of Compton, a Los Angeles based organisation, are using the sport of cricket as a way to help gang members in LA turn their lives around. The organisation arranges games in the USA and International tours for players (recently they played a series of matches in Australia)
