The Smart Meter I Really Want.

Have you noticed the ads that are running for smart meters that measure our domestic electricity and gas usage?

It Was Just Meant To Be

I’d just finished doing a bit of shopping, after a well-earned couple of hours relaxing at my local Café Nero, reading the paper over a long cup of coffee. Having walked about two hundred yards back towards home I realised, with a start, that I hadn’t got what I’d really come out for; my lunch. [...]

Do Dachshunds Know They Have Short Legs?

I watched two amazing TV programs last night. The first was Horizon and it was about why Earth, as far as we know right now, is the Goldilocks planet. It’s not too close or too far from the Sun; which means it’s not too hot or cold. There’s not too much or too little oxygen [...]

Of Mice and Men

I got back to Schiphol for my 7.00 flight at 4.00 on Friday afternoon with my colleague David and we went our separate ways to check-in; me with BA and him with EasyJet. I’d looked at the prices for EasyJet but after baggage was included there was only a £10 difference in cost. However two [...]

The Importance of Words

I love Schiphol airport. When you arrive on BA you’re at the farthest point from the baggage reclaim and the passport control. The step meter on my phone recorded it as 1700 steps and I was carrying my computer, which with all the other stuff in the bag, weighed in at about 7kg’s. So all [...]

What an Inspiring Day

Well that’s three years and about £45,000 over and done with. Those weren’t my thoughts, as I watched my son receive his BSc at Leeds University, they were actually his words as we had a drink together afterwards. It all seems a bit transactional when you put it in those terms; of years taken and [...]

Do You Do Random?

Yesterday I had a meeting with a chap I’d been connected to for some time but never sat down with and chatted. To meet him I had to go to London which meant a walk to the station and getting on a train, a cost in terms of time and money. I had a lot [...]

The Truth Will Set You Free

If you’re like me you’ve heard the maxim “The truth will set you free” many times but it was only when I decided to research where it comes that I discovered it’s a quote from the bible. The only relevance of that piece of information is that when we know the source of something; whether [...]

The power of the poet

The Power Of The Poet

I’ve never really understood poetry but there have been some poems that have hugely influenced me. The first was “If” by Rudyard Kipling and it still influences me today. For some it’s a cliché and for others Kipling represents everything that was wrong with the British Empire. Which is a shame because he wrote some [...]
