Review - Tell My Mother I'm Not Dead by Trevor Hamilton

A Case Study in Mediumship Research.

Imperial Academic £8.95

Well, this was a tale and a half.  The author lost his son in a car accident, and spent years trying to get in touch with him via various mediums, in a very logical and methodical way.
Sessions were recorded, notes written, and care taken to ensure nothing was given away.  Much research was done, also - the bibliography is not brief and promises fascinating reading.
The results were surprising.  I have an open mind, but I can usually tell when someone is pulling the wool, and it appeared to me that there right in front of him was overwhelming evidence of the soul's survival after death.
Mr Hamilton, however, was not such a pushover and continued almost to deny any possibility, despite all these happenings which could not be explained in any other way.
This is not a dramatic book.  In fact, it's quite scientific and unbiased.  It is simply his search for evidence of life after death.  I reckon he found it.

Heinz Squeeze and Stir Soup

This is a new one on me.  Remember the powdered soup-in-a-sachet that all too often tasted, well, powdery?
I spotted this in Iceland – 59p, if I remember correctly.  Shame they only had two flavours, and as I hate anyone’s tomato soup, I chose this one – Chicken and Vegetable.
It’s in a sturdy sachet (I had to cut it open, tho’ it does have a tear strip at the top).  It’s about the size of a toothpaste tube.  It’s lightweight (70g), and will easily fit into a handbag, pocket or briefcase
It doesn’t need refrigerating, either.  It’s low fat, if that’s your thing - 102 Cal’s in all.
It’s easy to make – boil the kettle, squeeze the paste into a mug, add a little of the hot water, stir, add more water to fill the mug, and stir again.  It’s that easy.
What does it taste like?
Just like a tinned soup – only very, very portable.  That’s got to be better in roadmiles, surely?
Worth a try, I’d say.

I am leaving the big bad world of journalism - if I was ever in it in the first place.
I will still happily edit, write reviews, and what-have-you, but my 'journo' website has now gone, and I'm spending much of my time crafting, and teaching.
Check out my other blog - it's much more fun!
