the heart of the matter – who I am

Me

My name is Nick Lear, I am a 40-something Baptist Regional Minister in Essex, in the East of England, who loves telling jokes, performing magic tricks and looking at life from a different perspective. You can find out a bit more about the Eastern Baptist Association for whom I work by clicking on the link.

You may find that Saturdays and Sundays are relatively blogless: one is usually my day off and the other is one where I am especially busy.

I blog for selfish reasons – I find it helps me to reflect on my life and faith. If you find it helpful then that’s wonderful too. If you just come here for the jokes I hope that you chuckle and chortle or giggle and guffaw. Whatever your reason for visiting, it is nice of you to do so and I hope you leave this site with a smile on your face.

In case you are curious about the history of this blog, it was previously hosted on Blogspot but I migrated to here (now having received an unexpected 23,000+ hits!) because I was getting frustrated by a period of unreliability by Blogspot.

If you want to know why the blog is called ‘Nukelear Fishing’ you can find out here.

I have been made aware that sometimes adverts appear on my site that link to other websites, this is because I am too cheap to pay for an ad-free blog page. However I have no control over these adverts, and am sorry if any of them cause you offence. I do not endorse nor recommend any of them personally. To make it easy for you to discern whether I recommend a link, if I recommend a link I will make it clear that it’s from me and will put it in the body of the blog or it will appear in the lists in the sidebar. If it’s on its own, it’s not from me: click at your own risk.

By the way, the sources of a lot of my jokes are:

http://jokes.christiansunite.com/ and if those fail I try some imaginative searches on google (other search engines are available).http://www.mycleanhumor.com/clean-jokes/

Legal bit: I try as far as possible to use royalty-free images, get permission to use images or provide credit and links. If I have failed, please forgive me and I will rectify any omissions or remove the photo if that’s what you prefer. I am not in a position financially to pay anyone for the use of your photos.

  1. I love what I have read of your blog so far, thank you so much- but (don’t know if I just can’t see it, or you are deliberately being a bit anonymous!) I can’t find your name easily anywhere?!? Prob just me! Blessings, and thanks again, Elizabeth Pinder-AShenden (another Baptist, rather unconventional minister)

    1. Thank you Elizabeth. I was not being deliberately anonymous, just forgot to say who I am! I have amended the ‘about me’ section so you can find my name and also a link to our church. Bless you and thank you for your encouragement.
