The exploitation of hope

The title for this blog just ‘hit me’ and I had to write this. So I put everything else on hold. At the outset, I need to say that I have nothing against ‘hope’ in itself. Our society and our achievements are based on aspirations. We had to have someRead More

Unify spell checking language in Word 2013

This has been a pesky error that drives people nuts!! But there’s a simple solution that I’m documenting here, in case I need to refer to it again.

Freedom lost? Martin Luther King–I remember!

Like pearl being trampled by swine – grunting that this was ‘just about America’ – many a crawler on Rocks big and small forget this important day in history. A man spoke,  a man died – for our freedom!! A man spoke the truth. And the truth survives even death!!Read More

SWOT analysis

SWOT Analysis – a powerful tool for development by Captain Walker Recently the Cap has been reviewing a whole lot of things, about life, work, the future etc. It’s been a difficult exercise trying to work out where to take the ‘ship’ – speaking in parables here. How does oneRead More

The truth at what cost?

Getting it wrong and right

This is about lots of things – spending money, getting things done, getting it right and when I’ve gotten them wrong. I’ll focus on some things that I’ve purchased over the years. I’ll start with so-called ‘computers’. It’s a funny term because some people have images in their minds ofRead More

Captain’s Brief No.1

I just had to get this off before thoughts on Brief No 1 cooled down to much. Introduction to ‘Briefs’. This is the start of a new series from the Cap. I’ve realised that sometimes I come to some new awareness and I don’t necessarily need to write a longRead More

Oysters–a new experience

Probably two to three years ago I had finally gotten out of my zone of comfort about eating oysters. No – you don’t eat the shell. When I was in Brighton I recall, I had tried one or two.  They had a ‘different’ sort of metallic taste. I wasn’t putRead More

An amazing accident and coincidence

No – that’s not my railcard. It’s just a photo of some railcard I found on the net, for illustrative purposes. So what’s the story? I decided last night that some time today (14th August 2013), I’d attend the Great British Beer Festival.  So, I look for my railcard thatRead More
