Things you should teach your children

Live fully every moment. Enjoy every day of your life. Once they pass they never come back.
Success is not measured in money, power or fame. The true measure of your success in any endeavor or relationship is your happiness.
Banks and credit cards are not in the business to help you. Banks and creditors are in the business to make a profit out of you.
It is better to have an intelligent enemy than a stupid friend.
The friends you have are more important to your success in life than money or education.
Withholding love does not protect you from pain, it just isolate you from happiness.
Forgiveness frees the one that forgives not the one that is forgiven.
In a bad relationship there are no winners and losers. In a bad relationship there are only losers.
If you live like a hero or like a coward, if you succeed or fail, in the end we all die
And the most important thing you should tell your children:

Very well said, thank you for the dose of reality. I needed it!

Possibly so.

i think raising kids is such a difficult thing - my parents were effectively told how stupid they were their entire childhood and so over-reacted with me and never expected me to achieve anything in an attemt to compensate.

I'll stick to cats

Hi there regular readers

I’m really sorry to have to tell you that due to circumstances beyond my control Don’t Feed The Pixies has had to be deleted and will probably be gone by the time you read this.

I had gone to pains to keep my name off the web and had changed the names and places of those involved where speaking about someone or something – but it seems that I have not been careful enough and so to protect myself from any future problems I have had to quit the site.

Thank you for providing light in a tunnel of dullness. I came to the blog world in hope of finding others out there who I might have something in common with, or were just other lost souls looking for new ideas and new thoughts – I have enjoyed meeting you all.

I am not sure whether this blog will continue in any other form. Thank you for visiting

I hope you will return to blogging
