At the Yahoo Contributor Network recently, I have been writing about dangerous dogs, the power of prayer, spending a fortune on my honeymoon and how much I hate clod caller chuminess. What qualifies me to talk about anything of these things and demand that you listen to me? Well.... nothing actually but I love writing and they keep asking people to write about different topics so if I think I've got anything even remotely interesting to say on the subject, then I give it a go. I'm sorry as usual film lovers but non of these have anything to do with films. Just click the links to be magically transported across the web to any of the articles that tickle your fancy.

Did praying save my life in a plane crash?
When I was in a plane crash in Thailand in August 2009, as the plane slid off the runway on landing, I had time to think one thing: ‘Please God don’t let us die’. Was God there for me. Did he answer my prayer? Or was it simply luck that I survived?
When spending a lot more proved utterly worth it!

Forget cold caller chumminess; just give me the goods
I’m all for friendliness, service with a smile and treating other people with respect but there is a certain level of chumminess that I’m not comfortable with. If I don’t know you and you are too chummy with me, I’m automatically suspicious.
