If you have anything to share with us ,  it will be delightful to share it on these pages.

If however all you want to do is send venimous e mails,  
then please keep your thoughts to yourself as we really can do without them.








If you know a local venue you could put some of our cards in as a promo for us,  do let us know and we can post you out some and a BIG THANKS FOR HELPING US spread the word. 


If you feel your life is in a rut, then remember,  

the only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.


After 14 years here at Hamilton Hall,  where every decision is mine and I get almost zero input,

I feel I need a new direction here - and your sensible and legal input is welcome.




Did you miss the opportunity to SAVE 50% on your summer weekend or longer vacation at Hamilton Hall this summer ?    It was on offer through this web site for many months and it was only at the very last minute when the special offer was about to end that many took up the opportunity and booked - and if you missed it - tough.  Not only was it on this web site, but it was also promoted by sending out 15,000 e mails - several times as reminders,  and if you STILL missed it, then there really is nothing more I can say.

I do my best to offer you these deals and it is up to you to get your bookings in on time and after that - it is Kleenex time.

I have repeatedly been told off by customers for being far too cheap for our dinners - so the price has gone up this year to £15 for a 2 course dinner.  Considering the quality and siize  oif our portions,  it is still very reasonable and the fact that we all bond together so well during meals around one large table - all together - this 'happening' is fun, full of laughter and a great way to make new friends and not feel isolated if travelling alone.

Very pleased my hands stood up to all the hard work involved, and I am not talking about wanking.  With  help from Warren who did a wonderful job,  we have re decorated all the paintwork in the halls and landings and it was quite a big job.  Determined NOT to do the banistairs - guess who ended up doing them all... yes ... me ... and I was so sure my hands would pack up at the beginning and I would not be able to do bugger all,  but after asking the angels for help, my hands were fine... absolutely fine,  and it soon was all done and clean white and I am thrilled.  Every year we do a great deal of maintenence and this was one job I was not thrilled about doing but thrilled it did get done and big thankyou to Warren.

We have a couple of guys booked in for a week this summer whose home was under 2 feet of water for over a week during this wet and windy winter and they saw my promotion for free holidays to those whose homes were flooded and I am thrilled to be able to show them a little light at the end of th tunnel, for as they have told me, it is a real headache dealing with insurance companies, builders and so forth and nothing - it appears - is being made easy for them.  I am delighted to offer this free period here for them as we cannot even imagine what it must have been like to have floodwater pouring through your beloved home and to have nowhere to go... this is your home - and we shall welcome them with open arms and much admiration for what they have been through.

I have had some local guys con me out of £1,500 this winter for various things for Hamilton Hall that were never forthcoming and while it REALLY got my anger roaring,  I have put it behind me and moved on - wiser - a little saddened at how people can steal and con from others who have precious little ( I am massively overdrawn at the bank and we always struggle financially here )  and I pity those who sunk so low as to steal from me in such a manner.  Karma will catch up with them and when it does, I do so hope they see the error of their ways and the pain it caused.

At last it has come to an end. I hope.
After a year of receiving regular NASTY, VENIMOUS AND HATE FILLED e mails from someone who claimed they wanted me to delete their e mail address from my data base so they would not receive any further promo's from me, but who refused all the time to give me the correct address to search for - so I was unable to delete him as he had requested and so he kept sending offensive e mails in return,  this week I did a great deal of googling and found who he was and was able to find his address and delete him.  

Being screamed at and being called a cunt, a whore, a peado and worse is a nasty thing to read and there were times I could easily have gone to the police because of his obnoxious and threatening behaviour and through it all, I know EXACTLY what this mans problem is - ME.
I have everything he envies.  
A men only naked hotel.
No mortgage.
A really big dick.
Fabulous good looks.
Education. - ( need I go on ?  ha ha ha  )  and despite all the good work, free vacations, thoughtful offerings for no wages at all that I freely offer for nothing in return,  these small minded jealous little men like to throw their own stuff at me and it REALLY hurts me  - as it is always anonymously done - and these cowards are never brave enough to face me...

But now he is deleted and  Colin at can - as far as I am concerned, wait for the kama to catch up with him - for it will - and one day the shit will hit the fan and he will wonder why all hell has broken loose in his life and wonder what he ever did to deserve this.  
His e mails would shock you.  His attitude and anger towards a complete stranger was amazing - truly amazing - especially as he had it in his power all along to offer the correct address to delete and it was not the one he was e mailing me through,  so I can only assume he enjoyed receiving my e mails and used it as an excuse to scream his own personal anguish from life - at me - because I am maybe too good to be true and made him see his own life for what it really is - and I do feel desperately sorry for him.

After I told him I had found his address despite him not offering it and how he was now deleted,  I offered a free weekend with all meals - if he was man enough to accept it - and once again, true to form, he screamed more abuse at me - and coming fom a complete stranger I have never even met,  sends chills down my spine that there are so many mental health issues out there and how some of these people obviously are in need of some kind of medical or theraputic help. 

I move on now and shall put this man and his attiutude behind me and shall soon find the funny side of it - for there always is a funny side, but it does make me wonder why I am such a target for so many fucked up men who like sending me abuse - and from people I have never even met or spoken to.

Are they afraid of me, jealous of me, envious of me, resentful of my stunning good looks and whopping penis - ha ha ha - or are they just venting to anyone they can find ?

Maybe they read my life history on this site and it pissed them off.  Whatever, assholes like this I can do without and if I ever receive e m,ails like it again. I shall go straight to the police as there is no reason and no excuse at all. Period.




this will make you laugh...

A friend went to Beijing recently and was given this brochure by the hotel. It is precious.   She is keeping it and reading it whenever she feels depressed.    Obviously, it has been translated directly, word for word from Mandarin to English.
Getting There

Our representative will make you wait at the airport. The bus to the hotel runs along the lake shore. Soon you will feel pleasure in passing water. You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend. The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries to have intercourse with all new guests. 
The Hotel

This is a family hotel, so children are very welcome. We of course are always pleased to accept adultery. Highly skilled nurses are available in the evenings to put down your children. Guests are invited to conjugate in the bar and expose themselves to others. But please note that ladies are not allowed to have babies in the bar. We organize social games, so no guest is ever left alone to play with them self. 
The Restaurant

Our menus have been carefully chosen to be ordinary and unexciting. At dinner, our quartet will circulate from table to table, and fiddle with you. 
Your Room

Every room has excellent facilities for your private parts. In winter, every room is on heat. Each room has a balcony offering views of outstanding obscenity! .. You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, since the road between the hotel and the lake is used only by pederasts. 

Your bed has been made in accordance with local tradition. If you have any other ideas please ring for the chambermaid. Please take advantage of her. She will be very pleased to squash your shirts, blouses and underwear. If asked, she will also squeeze your trousers. 
Above All

When you leave us at the end of your holiday, you will have no hope. You will struggle to forget it.



After 18 months with us here, Kevin is leaving for pastures greener and we wish him well with his onward joiurney.  new beginings for us both.

So we have a vacancy for a FULL TIME - LIVE IN ASSISTANT to help with all aspects of running this friendly and fun venue and you can see more on the page here - 





Drag Queen Panti Bliss's

viral homophobia speech

6 February 2014 Last updated at 22:03 GMT

An impassioned speech by an Irish drag queen about what constitutes homophobia has been viewed more than 300,000 times on YouTube, prompting thousands of comments.

Panti Bliss was already an icon of Ireland's gay scene, but her profile has just rocketed. In a speech at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin at the weekend, Panti spoke of the "oppression" she feels as a gay person living in Ireland - including her own sense of internalised oppression.

It was a whole lot easier to get older than it was to get wiser.








Learned a lot from a disabled young man who was here this week. Only aged 36 and with various disabilities,  he was so up beat and so ' happy clappy' as he put it,  it really made me stop and think.  Here I am worrying about this and that - an assortment of things going through my mind worrying me - and here is this young man with a limited lifespan all cheerful and happy,  and it did make me stop and take stock.  At the end of the day,  if the gas bill is massive - it will get paid... and I will survive to see another winter and another decade and a long life, whereas here was this cheerful man probably facing a few more years and then ....  and his cheerful manner was a lesson - a big lesson - about what is important.


I hope you will check out the Diary of Events and come to our Sci Fi Weekend.  I am so excited and the bookings have already started coming in.  Should be great fun

Dear John

Geoff and I visisted Hamilton Hall many times over the years and you will remember how we hated leaving at the end of the various periods with you,  and always looked forward to the next visit.  Geoff died recently as he had been ill for some time  and knew for the last few years that he was terminal and while we kept this to ourselves,  we were determined to make his last year or so memorable.  

He loved his stays with you and the way you made us laugh.  He loved the dinners around the table together and how you kept the conversation going. He always laughed and smiled when we spoke of you at home and when something happened that reminded us of you, he would say  ' Oh that's a John Bellamy that is ...'  

Geoff was 66 years of age and I will miss him dearly and know,  that at the moment, I cannot return to Hamilton Hall as it has too many memories for me.  One day in a year or so I shall see you again but the memories are still too close and I need some space to find my journey alone and without Geoff ( we were together for 18 years )  and see where my future takes me.

I thank you John for what you have given so freely - the love and support for so many people through Hamilton Hall and know that a lot of happy memories that died with Geoff are now joined with a higher power - and that one day I shall also be re joining Geoff on that journey, but before then I wanted to say thank you for everything.  




Tony Bray died just before Christmas, and I shall miss him.  He was a good and dear friend who visited and loved Hamilton Hall and would sit in the Conservatory meeting and greeting people as they came and went and everyone loved his peaceful and charming manner.  He was 79 years of age and a real sweetheart.    He will be missed, dearly missed.



STASH THE CASH.  I can recommend you click on the logo to the left and watch this youtube video if you have extra cash you want to hide from the government and tax man,  as this will tell you how to legally 'wash' your money and make it clean.  So if you are a drug dealer, run illegal immigrants / women or maybe sell illegal arms,  this 'STASH THE CASH' will help.  Naturally, I am joking... but when you think of the billions stolen by the banks and no one is paying for it - and billions stolen by big business and they are given tax incentives to do so, and when you consider IKEA is a charity and does not pay tax - why is the government so hot on tracking down us - the small man, if and when we fiddle a few £ in unpaid taxes when BILLIONS are given away TAX FREE to corporate power by our government and nothing - NOTHING - is done about it .










If you want a few days in Barcelona and do not know where to stay, take a look at this web site  -  BARCELONA APARTMENT  which is owned by a friend of mine and is his really lovely apartment right in the heart of the city yet in a quiet location.  Ten mimutes walk from almost anywhere in the city,  it is well worth considering rather than an anonymous hotel.   He is a George Clooney look-a-like and a very nice man and you will certainly get very good value for money and know that your hard earned cash is not going to some corporate hotel but to an individual.  

Errol, the owner, is also a very fine yoga teacher and artist.

Every penny raised goes to help the many people we help with food, company, a week or  weekend away, counseling, and even sometimes helping with clothes. In one case we bought a homeless student a bike to get to college on,  and in another , a guitar and lessons to play for a local lad whose life was aimless and he was stoned on drugs all day and all night and we are today, guiding him into making  a life for himself - get his act together - and have some order in his empty life.  We do what we do for absolutely no reason other than

So - If you know some guys who 




The hate preacher who has created many storms over his GOD HATES FAGS campaign through his Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, USA is dying of ill health at 84 years of age. 

Fred Phelps had been excommunicated from the Christian sect which picketed the funeral of US soldiers holding up signs saying ' THANK GOD FOR IED's and THANK GOD FOR 911' and even ' THANK GOD FOR DEAD SOLDIERS' claiming the deaths were God's punnishment for Americas immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.

He is better known in gay circles for his GOD HATES FAGS campaign, even though one of his 13 children, ran away from home when he was just 18 ( now believed to be in his 50's ) and has lived in Canada promoting LGBT rights.  ( Bet that went down well with Daddy Dearest...)

Westboro Baptist, a small group made mostly of Phelps’ extended family, inspired a federal law and laws in numerous states limiting picketing at funerals. But in a major free-speech ruling in 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the church and its members couldn’t be sued for monetary damages for inflicting pain on grieving families under the First Amendment.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil-rights nonprofit group, has called Westboro Baptist Church a hate group.

Nate Phelps, an estranged son of Fred Phelps, also said in an email to The Topeka Capital-Journal that members of Westboro have voted Fred Phelps out of the church.

Nate Phelps, who broke away from the church 37 years ago, told the newspaper that church members became concerned after the vote that his father might harm himself and moved him out of the church, where he and his wife had lived for years. Fred Phelps was moved into a house, where he “basically stopped eating and drinking,” Nate Phelps said.

A Kansas gay rights group on Sunday urged the gay community to respect the privacy of the “notoriously anti-LGBT” pastor if his health is declining.

Phelps and the members of his church have “harassed” the grieving families of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Kansans and others, Thomas Witt, executive director of Equality Kansas, said in a prepared statement.

I watched a couple of TV documentaries on this man and the abuse and horrendous treatment screamed by him and his family at those bereaved and attending funerals was horrific and cruel and I am not unhappy that this man is dying at all.   Brainwashing his family members to be bigoted in this fashion is surely as wrong as teaching your children that murder is okay - or rape - and it is good to see that at least one of his children escaped and now works for the rights of the LGBT community.  Coming from the background and family he does,  it must have been hard.

I am always curious why some people make it such a campaign to go up against gay people as if we were an abomination and a sin from God even though the Bible DOES NOT STATE THIS AT ALL and there are more concerns in the Bible concernign straight sex than there ever are for gay sex and the word gay or even homosexual never existed in the original biblical texts - at all - no mention - zero - nada - and anyone claiming it does is a liar.  It dos statre that having sexual relations with any family member is an abomination and even eating crap, lobster, rabbit and pork are an abomination,  and yet they merrily ignore this while screaming about gays.    Limiting what you choose to believe - or not - in the Bible is not a belief structure,  it is a choice, and if you choose to read and follow only a part of anything,    then you will be wrong.  

If you lived your life acccording to the Harry Potter books but only read book one and three, then you would not have the whole picture.  If you decide that certain parts of the Bible are not meant for you and decide to ignore it, then you are limiting the truth - the whole truth and nothing but the truth ( acording to this massively edited book ) and this is not going to teach you a rounded and complete version of what it is trying to tell you.  

I doubt this man and his weird family will not be missed and I hope and pray this church of his - this evil and obnoxious disgrace for a religious belief structure, will now die as quickly as this old man will when he takes his last breath and passes into history - a part of history that need never be repeated.

GOOD NEWS:  This old bastard is now dead.  Not a great loss to humanity although I feel for his family who must now feel a great void...  although they will probably think it was the gays who killed him.... For many,  it will be a time of celebration that the old hate filled asshole is dead.

I am sure there are many who will hope he rots in hell

for what he has done.

and I am sure even God is digusted at this vile little man and what he has done in His / Her name.


As a spiritual man, I try and see the good in everyone, the love and the care we all hold inside.  Sadly there are a few people we meet that we do wonder who on God's Earth could possibly love them, care for them and want to befriend them,  and I am sure there were people who loved and adored Hitler,  as there are this Fred Phelps.  

Maybe he was a good Father - a caring man who did good work other than this campaign of hate and fear he presided over and the families of dead soldiers and gay men who had to face his bogotry at the funeral of their loved ones and had to cope with that at the worst time in their lives.  Maybe he meant well and was just trying to help the family see the light - the truth - or maybe he was suffering some kind of mental health problem that made him deranged and no one had the guts to stand up to him - and he just went from bad to worse.  

Maybe his biggest fear was that he really was gay and the fear turned him mad. There are many maybe's and many excuses to be made and I hope he finds some answers when he comes face to face with God and that S/He shows him the error of his ways and finds forgiveness from those he abused.






Hamilton Hall is not part of the Brahma Kumaris - I love their work and what they offer and have

always helped promote the wonderful work they do.
If I had more free time, I would certainly visit their events all the time.
