Stop Press !!

 After weeks of internal wrangling, in fighting, rumour and counter rumour not to mention the usual scandals and boardroom malarkey my other blog Engage the Street has bought out this and is now in the process of a full scale merger. At a date yet to be announced this Blog will close down forever and all future posts will be committed to Engage the Street. The Management would like to thankyou for your patronage and it is their fervent wish that you join them on Engage the Street where it is their intention that all you enjoyed on Scratchin will be found on Engage plus lots more besides.

Thankyou !

 

NB : Please not that nobody has lost their job, pension, bank account or trousers as a result of this merger. The dog’s not too happy though !

The Black Dog

with 3 comments

We all get a case of the Black Dog from time to time. We wouldn’t be normal ( whatever that is ) if we didn’t. For some people however it can be a long debilitating process in which life has little meaning and the dark pit of despair in which they find themselves in seems endless. Depression is nothing to be ashamed of or hidden away. It can strike at any time or at any age and needs to be treated with care, sympathy and patience.
