Organic Gardening Go Pesticide Free This Year!

I hope this year many Gardeners become inspired, and decide to go pesticide free, and try growing organic vegetables, for a far more healthier lifestyle, by eating good wholesome healthy foods, free of toxins, as found from processed foods with additives. Vegetables may seem a boring prospect when coming to eat them, but that can be far from the truth, as there are many great ways to cook organic vegetables, lightly cooked in a little butter and garlic, or even roasted in the oven with a little honey, to obtain a yummy caramelized vegetable. Three great current chefs that come to mind for some great ways to cook vegetables is; Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.


By going green this year with organic vegetables, and pesticide free plants, your Bees in the Community, insects and small birds, will be forever grateful. For pesticides are one of the biggest killers to these remarkable and essential wild life creatures. My Gardening For Beginners Book is available for readers in print and on digital from these stores >

Britannia A Timely Reminder on Sky Atlantic Television

Whilst today still being one of the world's super powers, and a tollerant peace loving people, and nation of Islands, below the surface and deeply engrained in their genes is a steely resolve...

The Cherry Tree Garden Book by Alastair Agurtter

Healthy Diet and Music Brings Clarity to the Mind

The human story and journey is reaching an interesting point in evolution, as we become more informed through medicine, science, and biochemistry. Today we are confronted with many issues that need to be addressed, none more so than climate change and air pollution. Another great security issue is food, the right kind of food though, free of additives and chemicals (toxins and poisons), that are so tempting to buy that we know as processed foods, and quick meals, as a result of a frenetic lifestyle. Such cycles of chaos in our lives is not at all good for our health. Most diseases however, as like in Marine Life, can be related to stress and poor diet.


Today more than at anytime, Cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other degenerative diseases, do begin and are triggered by stress, and an unhealthy lifestyle. Air pollution and the constant headaches, all relate to toxins and unwanted chemicals in the blood stream, that can inhibit cell regeneration, leading to the diseases as mentioned. The greatest and most precious gift we are blessed with is intelligence, and human consciousness. So we can explore the world and evolve, this encompasses and includes the particle atoms that create us, elements driven by intelligence and energy pulsing and vibrating. It is critical from eating natural healthy food to retain clarity of the mind, and cell regeneration. The addition of music with vibration pulse cantations, we know as beat and rhythm, stimulate the Neuron energy sensors, enlightening the activity of the brain, so such regular activity of listening to music helps, to retain an active eager brain, seeking to continually learn. Remember the only commodity accepted by God are Memories, derived from knowledge and wisdom, surrounding ones journey of life. So if you are curious and would like to know more about the big picture, or grand scheme, including details of the four cycles of the human condition, and finding the true path of happiness and contentment. My recent Book on Spiritual Enlightenment, The Cherry Tree Garden Book, is available in traditional print and in digital ebook format from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple iTunes, Google Play, Kobo, Gandhi, Scribd, Playster, Overdrive and many other stores >

Education Systems Lack Vision by Alastair Agutter

Education Systems Lack Vision

In recent years especially, current and past Coalition Governments in the UK including past Labour, have tampered with the Education System and lacked total vision for a modern World. Today from the election of Donald Trump, further evidence exists regarding the need for education, even at a fundamental level. Only by replacing the ignorance of the gun, can we create a peaceful united world through knowledge, leading to wisdom and enlightenment, to meet the challenges of the day, none more so than Climate Change.

The Cost of Privatization Energy Bills Scandal

Nearly three decades of Utility Company Privatization and this is now the long term price of such short term policy making and now the folk of Britain will suffer the consequences and again pay.

The Parents Guide Book by Alastair Agutter

Books the Keepers of Knowledge and Wisdom

A very warm welcome to the "Author's Book Club News" for the very latest news, on new book releases and updates, including news of existing books, and the most popular Best Sellers, written by the Author Alastair R Agutter, for Hobbies, Interests, Children's Education and Pastimes.


A Parents Companion Filled With Common Sense!

The most important job in the world is being a parent, continuing the sacred covenant of creating life. But in our modern society today, many challenges can lay a head, and sometimes you can often be in need of a friend, or companion for some truthful answers, but loaded with common sense, rather than any quirky ideas by the ill informed, or folk full of opinions, but deficient in hands on experience as a parent.


I know being a parent myself of five remarkable children, the journey can very often be fraught with events, many of joy, laughter, and yet other times with great sadness. So I hope this book becomes a good friend and companion at times of need. The book will help shed light on child growth and development, especially surrounding teenage years, where a sibling changes from a child to a young adult. The changes to them at this time in their lives, is like the perfect storm, and a time where understanding and support is required in abundance. The human condition is a fascinating phenomena, as human beings go through four cycles in their life time. But the most challenging of all is those teenage years.
