Lurkers – that’s what they call the people on the internet who don’t make any noise.   Lurkers don’t even register on the internet. Not even a blip do they leave. And there are tens if not hundreds of thousands of them, literally the silent majority, just peering in...

Enwipenment

Not so many moons ago, my life was drastically altered.   After I came across this unassuming little advert on the television…       And I simply fell in love with it !!   I think more than anything else, it was the service technician’s total nonchalance that was the...
Faking it

Faking it

Sometimes, you need to be hit over the head two or three times…   With a blunt something or other, before things can really sink in.   And that’s just what has happened to me recently. The lesson I learned – or at least the lesson I already knew but had had it...

Taxing times

As I write this, the end of financial year is now fast approaching…   And I’m sitting here waiting for a woman representative to turn up from the bank I’ve been using for the last 25 years. Taxing times indeed…   And for some weird unknown reason, she now...

Word Play

Having been publicly recognised as a bit of a wordy git of late…   Mainly because of my blogging prowess…   Somewhat surprisingly. I was recently invited to become the Founder President of the Logan based Philological Society (Not really). And wrongly...
