A Grebe Takes a Meal

Published by:

I love observing the world around me, finding the little things that people normally miss, and when I find the unusual, I need to know what is gaining on, what is the history, what makes it work, but sometimes I just like to observe and enjoy the time.

Walking recently by the River Thames I noticed the bird called the grebe swimming low in the water, and diving down for what seems an age, to resurface a long way away from where it entered.
It was the first time that I saw the result of a dive, that the grebe had caught a fish. Nature can be so cruel when you think of the poor fish that was just swimming about just a few seconds before, but life on earth is like this, a tree or plant will take nutrients from the soil, perhaps depriving another plant or tree which will then die. A lion will kill an antelope to feed to live. A bird will eat a caterpillar so we will never see a beautiful butterfly, and then perhaps the bird will be eaten by another animal.

It is a dog eats dog world.
Even in business, cultural or beliefs systems, in living or existing as we have seen in recent months say in Libya, it is the same, it is dog eat dog or the survival of the fittest.
Life can be Poo Poo seen from one perspective, or beautiful and productive if seen from another.

Global Tech really do think I am an idiot.

I just received another telephone call, but this time the number read 02080997526 (UK London telephone number), and yes the person had an Indian accent.

He introduced himself as Mike, oh I have heard that name before, and this time he said he was from Global Tech.
Then he went on about how my computer may be infected by a virus, and could I get on my computer and he would prove to me that it had been infected.
Mike, you have called me three times in the last week. You are not British, you are from India and and still in India, you are a fraudster a scammer, trawling through the telephone books, telephoning people who you can convince there is something wrong with their computer when it is OK, then take their money.

Just by buying another internet telephone number does not stop people knowing who you are.
If you have been a victim in the UK, you can report the incident to Action Fraud.
