Last year I flew to America (visiting Boston and Chicago) and this year I’ll be flying to London (twice) and to Singapore later in the year. I’m travelling much more than I used to so I guess it’s only natural that I’m pondering how to rebalance my carbon emissions. This definitely played into my decision…Continue reading It's not easy being green
Decluttering continues, hampered only by a sudden lack of interest. I’m not surprised of course, that’s how it always is with me, all excited and raring to go at the start before… meh.. apathy and distractions. One of which has been catching up with the latest travelogue from Michael Palin. It’s been fascinating to learn…Continue reading And slowly, it became right
I do feel a little guilty doing this kind of post for the second time in as many days but.. well.. see the previous post as to why. So let’s start with, and you knew it would be this way, the recent Apple ‘event’ (product launch). If that doesn’t interest you, skip the next paragraph…Continue reading Mixed Fruit

Bassett’s Fruit Allsorts are top. Want one?.. ohh sorry, I appear to have eaten them all. My Gran (85?) uses phone banking. Ryder Cup heading destined for Europe?
Transit of Venus, dying young, iTunes Music Store Europe? And can anyone explain to me why spiders turn upside down when they die (of natural causes, not by being stood on obviously…). Do they, in their death throes suddenly leap onto their backs and curl up?
Working at home has it’s advantages. I get oodles more done as there are no interruptions, impromptu meetings or random co-worker distractions (I’m as good/bad as anyone at all providing all of these mind you). Yet home working is still viewed with some scepticism. Sure it means you can structure your day differently than a…Continue reading All quiet
Privacy International Media Release about the Snoopers Charter. The what? you ask. Well whilst the government was keeping us all occupied with the ID Card proposal, it was pushing a new law through the House of Lords. This law will allow “The data — relating to who you phoned, who phoned you, mobile phone location,…Continue reading Snoopy
