Zero: 1st January 2011
Every year in Britain: more than 28 million New Year Resolutions are made and more than 27 million are broken within 3 months.
11,000 new love songs are sung.
220 new words enter the English dictionary.
790,000 babies are born.
Between 25 and 50 new acts of Parliament are passed. They join thousands of Laws and Regulations already in the statute book. Complicating simplicity is a human obsession. Thousands of rules, obligations and regulations are created in the belief that our lives will somehow be better ordered and more morally sustainable and yet, despite our lawmakers’ best efforts, it seems life gets harder and far more complicated than it needs to be.
The seven Noahide Commandments, in their simplicity, guide us in living the best life.
I survived the 9-hour procedure though not intact.
