Despite everything here are a two more reviews – this time from Amazon Australia

I loved reading Celeste, where for me Star Trek meets a more current way of thinking, keeping it smaller and simpler in some ways yet much more complex and deep in others. Fascinating turns everywhere from steamy relationships, danger, a ship that comes to life, to meeting different yet familiar entities that have mastered the power of thoughts. A nice not seen before (by me) creative touch at the end, and yes, l would like to find out what happens after, hint, hint 😉

A well thought out Space Trek, brief but plausible encounters with Aliens, touching on why they don’t seem to be keen on contacting us, the evolution of an Artificial Intelligence, a look at the origins of some ancient myths and a touch of Romance.
All the boxes are ticked in this latest Sci-Fi tale from author Jack Eason.
Will there be a sequel?
I’d like to think so.

The top revue is from PollyEster in Australia. The second is from our hairy friend Chris Graham aka The Story Reading Ape here in the UK. Both of them are followers of my blog. For which I am eternally grateful.
A few more positive reviews like these and I might just be tempted to write a sequal. So get buying and reading people…

I’m Not Playing Your Stupid Games Anymore!!!

I’ve spoken of this in the past. Yet it keeps on happening. What am I talking about? Corporate greed and mind games. This morning I received not one but two snail mail letters from my current (no pun intended) energy supplier. The first asked me to do their job for them yet again by sending them a meter reading. The second negated the first by saying they had already got a meter reading and that it would be part of my next estimated bill – note they did say part, not the whole. If thats the case, why ask me to read the meter, which is clearly pointless in the first place?

I’ve obliged in the past on a number of occasions. But sending a reading never once lowered my electricity bill to an acceptable level no matter which energy provider I deal with, and I’ve dealt with a few over the years believe me. If anything, the amount they say I owe always increases after a meter reading. In other words, they still insist on a bill being based on guestimates of my quarterly electricity usage, combined with how much money they think they can extort from me to help expand their business and keep their shareholders happy.

So why should we cooperate with them by sending them a meter reading when we all know they will continue fleecing us come what may? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. To them we’re nothing more than cash cows to be exploited!

If we were still living in the good old days when you only ever paid for the actual amount of eletricity used, based on the monthly meter readings by one of the provider’s employees, I would have no problem at all. But sadly those days are long gone. While they continue to rip off their customers there is no way I will cooperate with them! Even following the advice of various consumer groups who are constantly telling us to change energy providers if we’re disatissfied is completely pointless, given the simple fact that all energy providers are private businesses, out to make a profit at the expense of the user, knowing they have us over a barrel!

So Scottish and Southern Energy, think on! Until you tell me that as a customer of yours, you have my best interest at heart – fat chance, you know what my response will always be from now on. Your letters will be consigned to the paper shredder, and your emails will wind up in the trash! Get it through your thick corporate skulls, I’m sick and tired of playing your silly mind games!!!

Whoever thought that privatising the country’s energy supply was a good idea, needs to be put up against a wall and shot! If the water and sewerage companies can keep their prices at an acceptable level by asking us to pay for what their meters tell them, even though they need to maintain and expand their infrastucture as well, why then can’t the electricity suppliers do the same thing?

Bring back nationalisation of the energy supply!

Bah Humbug
