I recently received an email from someone I hadn’t seen, nor spoken to in A LONG TIME. Without wanting to sound rude, it’s someone that was part of a former life, that has no bearing on my current life, nor do they need to be. You see, Facebook has this annoying feature (part of the reason I don’t use it), whereby it provides you with a sliding list of people ‘you may know’. Most of the time, they’re Indians that […]
Vicki wanted a new car, but I don’t like buying new, so we settled on an Ex Demo. We picked it up last night from…….now now, that’s asking too much. It drives okay, very comfortable, and it seems pretty good on fuel, but only time will tell. Now I’ve got to try and sell her old car, they offered $1,000 trade in!

Sometimes, the end, is the beginning. Seven+ years ago, after gaining a qualification and, well, yeah that too (being cagey here), Vicki and I said we wouldn’t rush out and do ‘stuff’. We didn’t. Over the years though, we have done ‘stuff’, much of which we’ve kept quiet, other things, not so much – (I’m a cagey bastard). What I did, that people know about – well, those that matter, was build a hangar and purchase an aeroplane that was […]
