Thoughts Provoked by a Famous Sudden Death

Every time a young person passes away, we all start wondering why and how something like that happened to such a young person, with no medical history… Brittany Murphys unexpected death recently was breaking news… They say that bad news travel quickly and that is definitely a fact. The 32 year old actress died from heart assault, just like that. Others say that she had an eating disorder – anorexia and that she was on a pill treatment or something like that.

It is absolutely respectable that her loved ones do not want negative things being said for their lost baby and ask from the media to respect their privacy. Either way the autopsy results take some decent time period to finalize the results of what caused Brittany’s loss.

Doctors say that not only elderly people pass away from natural causes nowadays. In addition to this “famous death” displayed on all the international news channels, limitless human lives are lost every day from diseases and so many other unfortunate living circumstances.

I have noticed that if people have not gone through a difficult period in their life, concerning physical or mental health problems which can be life threatening, they don’t realize how delicate and fragile life is. I see every day that life is appreciated only when death appears near us or far away from us and health is appreciated only when sickness comes.

It should not be that way even for people that have had easy and pleasant lives until today and never had to deal with serious problems. Life is a gift; a present and we should all appreciate it, enjoy it, honor it, make the most of it and be grateful for every single moment that we are alive and breathing.

Cherish and be grateful every day for what you have and who you are, improve yourself in every area of your life you feel you need to and watch how the universe will return that energy to you, bringing only positive developments.

And don’t forget to show your honest feelings to the people around you, and tell them that you love or appreciate them. You never know when it will be the last time you ever see someone.

London Travel Guide

London is everything you would expect from a Capital City with a lot of history and more, and the good news now thanks to the irresponsibility of bankers worldwide is that London is not as expensive to visit as it has been for the last 10 or more years.

The pound hasn’t quite sunk without trace though, it still has some value but because the London’s economy is so closely linked to banking and financial services the pound was hit pretty hard and that means that your Dollar, Yen or Euro is going to buy so much more.

When people talk about London or indeed England they usually mention rain, but because of global warming summers in London are warm to hot these days, and that makes sightseeing a dream and it has to be said there are so many sights both old and new to see, the Queen and The London Eye are on the top of most people’s list, but those lists will just goes on and on.

One great way to take in most of the sights of London is a river trip, because like most very old cities London was built on first one then both banks of a river, in London’s case the River Thames.

From a river boat you will be able to take in the Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, The South Bank Arts Complex, The Globe Theatre a reproduction of a theatre from the time of Shakespeare, the Tower of London while gliding effortlessly under famous bridges like London Bridge and Tower Bridge and of course see so much more.

As well as the river London is famous for large open spaces of green and you can escape from the almost constant noise of this City that simply refuses to sleep for a moment into the delightful parks like St. James’ Park which lies behind Downing Street where the British Prime Minister has his official residence.

Surprisingly you can wander the length of the Mall and still be in St James’ Park down passed Duck and even Pelican Ponds to Buckingham Palace where the Queen of Great Britain has her official residence.

You can even check to see if she is at home by looking to see if the Royal Standard is flying above the Palace. You will be lucky to see her ‘at home’ though because the Queen favours Windsor Palace which is about 20 miles to the west of London where it is quieter and less polluted.

London is a sightseers’ dream, there is always something around the corner, from the blue plaque on the wall of the flat where Jimi Hendrix died at the back of Oxford Street to the beautifully restored St Pancras station now home to the International Rail (Channel Tunnel) Rail Service but for so many years a derelict condemned building.

At night even more of London comes alive and as well as being able to enjoy some excellent free live music in the caf├ęs and bars there is the exciting sight of the river-scape alive with lasers lights and often fireworks.

London is not to be missed and that is why it is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world and so it is probably no surprise that there are enough hotel beds in London to sleep the populations of dozens of major cities worldwide!

The surprise would be that most of these hotel beds are booked well in advance and so careful planning is required to get a great hotel at just the right price.

A good way to do that would be to use a website where you can compare prices and availability, though there are dozens of these here is an honest recommendation bookingspot.
