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

Immortalised

Recently on my jaunts through Scotland and London, I was in awe at various statues. Yes – I said statues – what’s the problem? You read it correctly the first time around. But it’s something that I become preoccupied with intermittently over the last 4 years whenever I travel. JustRead More

Organise your folders

Immediately I can expect that people reading this will be further driven to think that I have OCD or that I’m terribly organised and IT proficient etc. I’m not into a debate today, on how people take small pieces of information and build pictures of ‘reality’ in their heads. TodayRead More

A stupid situation with emails–or rather people.

This is brutal – as you might have come to expect. This is the situation. You send an email to someone. You double check that it’s left your email box and it shows as ‘sent’ in your sent box. You wait on a response. There is no response or acknowledgementRead More
