Does your grandfather REALLLLY do that

I’ve been talking to a couple of experts this week, in subjects very far from my normal one, and yet connected to it as well, one being a very helpful and informative guy  from America, and one a very accomplished business woman from England, regarding the best way to raise my social networking profile so that more […]

Good cheer, eventually

It’s funny (and not in a good way) having a funeral so close to Christmas. Two days before Christmas and most people are doing the supermarket dash, getting the sherry infused ingredients ready for the trifle, making the beds up for the in-laws staying and doing the last minute wrapping before the kids find the […]
