Happy New Year

Every New Year brings new hopes and opportunities for each of us. It will bring Positives and Negatives and leave it to us to choose how we grasp the Positives and mitigate the Negatives. Whether we choose to steer our path forwards with guiding resolutions or sit back and allow our path to drift with the flow is a decision for each of us. Personally I will be applying a mixed approach with some planned actions to guide in certain areas. I wish all my readers a very Happy New Year and all the best for whatever the future of 2019 holds. In every sunrise there is hope 🙂



You know, I try to not bring politics into this blog. I may occasionally pursue the impact of our political decisions on our planet,but I usually stay clear. Today our government was taken to task about the legal advice regards the exit of the British Isles from Europe. That the government should feel that such information should be withheld might perhaps be ok in time of war – I wouldn’t expect to be told about critical agreements in those circumstances. But we aren’t in a war, we’re seeking to exit the European Union based on a vote that was largely driven by emotions fuelled by propaganda and before any of the potential implications were available to the voters. Our government rightly sought legal advice about the potential outcome and now seek to deny that information from our representatives in parliament. That is not right whatever side of the debate you sit on 😦 I’m disgusted by the way that a number of self-serving individuals in parliament have pursued British Exit from Europe. It has become important that there is a vote by the people on the final deal with the EU To suggest that this is undemocratic flies in the face of past experience when back in the 1970’s we had a vote on whether to go in or not in the first case and then to remain or not after we renegotiated terms. Okay – That’s my gripe over…

Share Your World – August 27, 2018

Couldn’t resist playing again but I’m not intending to make it a habit 😉

Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts? Nuts are fine by me – love them in cereal and in cooked meals as long as they are legitimately part of the recipe. I’d be unimpressed if they shouldn’t be there!

Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? Closed – they’re a safety hazard in the dark otherwise! With a resident ghost on the stairs I really don’t have any concerns about closet doors.

Are you usually late, early, or right on time? – You’re asking a train enthusiast this??? Always on time! At least until I met my Wife – now it’s a real struggle to arrive at anything other than African Time 😉

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? All the work put in by the SCS Computing people to bring the current updates to Public Beta stage – massive undertaking that will bring so much fun to us fans of the Truck Sims 🙂 You’ll be reading about this in my Trucking Digest post this week 😉
