The people of Scotland have voted to retain the union. This reminds me of the Big Book of Magic Stuff. If they had voted the other way I really don't know what it would have reminded me of.

Today, Scots are divided between "Yes" and "No". Let us hope that, after the vote, they will be as united as Christianity is.

And the big question for all Scots today is: just how Welsh are you? Let's ask the Invisible Magic Friend?

Wednesday, 10 September, 2014, 08:45 AM - Be nice, Leach
And the Big News today is that everything is just awful. It's all doom and gloom and it always has been. Then you look at what humans have done in the past: the partition of India, the atomic bombs, the Holocaust, the world wars, the wars of imperialism, the slave trade, the Mongol invasions, the fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of the Roman Empire, the slaughter of the people of the Promised Land, the Flood. People are just downright rotten and horrible.

My message is: try to be nice. If you can avoid taking part in genocide or atomic warfare, then please, please, please, do so.

And the big news today is the invention of the Internet. I'm not interested in all this technology and I'm certainly not interested in talking about it as part of my Thought For The Day. If I was interested in Twitter, or Facebook, or email or the latest mobile phone, then I would make that my topic of conversation, rather than Scottish Independence, or turmoil in the Ukraine, or war in the Middle East. But what's happening in the world of social media means absolutely nothing to me. I'm not even going to mention wifi.

Guru Nanak says that you cannot find the Invisible Magic Friend up a mountain. Which is odd, because he seems to spend an inordinate amount of time at the top of mountains. I think he meant that you cannot get a good mobile signal up the top of mountains, not that that is of any interest to me.
