Not driven by logic

You know many of us hold logical thought as something very prized. If something does not hang together logically we’re likely to discredit it, have doubts about it and so on. We like to think that we are logical reasonable people. And in general we avoid people who are confusedRead More

The meaning and importance of privacy

In the UK the law is not only made up of Acts but by Regulations, which then drills down to quasi-legislative codes of practice. The DPA Acts deal with data and privacy relevant to individuals in two main ways. I’m not in a mood to give a lecture on thisRead More

Some times I wonder

It’s happened so many times before in my life in England, that I provide clear and conspicuous information but people then ask me for clarification. I often wonder what the heck is going on. Here’s the situation. I send out letters to professional colleagues with my postal address, telephone contactRead More

On a roll here – Skype is great.

I like Skype. I dare say I was one of the first people in the world to try Skype (www.skype.com). Now, you reading this might think ‘everybody knows about skpe!’. Well no – not everybody knows about skype. Half of the people I know are clueless about it and aren’tRead More

Oh well

Life rolls on. I write a great deal everywhere else but here. I’m not entirely sure why. So I’m trying to change that. I’m thinking perhaps that no one really looks on here. But in reality that should not matter, because it’s not meant to be show. It’s supposed toRead More

The use of ‘one’

Sometimes I get confused using English, once I think too hard about it. Like today 22:00 I began wondering whether the possessive form of ‘one’ had an apostrophe. So I’m thinking, ” Is it ones’”? or “Is it one’s”? In fact I began to wonder how on earth I knewRead More
