How can a man fail to finish a fortnight of blogging without a comment on the worlds’ number one golfer? Obviously I cannot. But it is not really the golf thing on which I want to comment. How can people think about what Tiger has accomplished in sport and his life in a balanced way? […]
How could I finish this fortnight as a guest blogger without tackling the two juiciest issues of the week. So for the first: The world engaging in a climate change binge. Why am I being so cynical? Well what are we 6 climbing to 7 or 8 billion people, well even to me that’s a […]
I wondered today if I was alone in a futile search for the opportunity to make up my own mind about where to park my car. I was in a part of town where there were less than half a dozen cars in the street but the signs said No Standing. I happen to know […]

Sometimes I find myself climbing on board a aircraft and looking at the seating, I can see and then feel the excruciating discomfort of being treated like a relatively insignificant product, my comfort of no real concern for the airline, my quality of travel experience a figment of their marketing department spin.
