Well, in the event it was a much better year for me personally than last year, although of course a year marred by ongoing terrorist and insurgent activity, and four massive natural disasters. It’s hard to know how to sum up 2005. A year of jolly hard work, to be sure, and plenty of work […]

Eeek – just bought a new car. Well, that is it’s a new car for us.. ’tis actually 3 years old, but with only 10k on the clock. We didn’t particularly want to have to buy one yet, but our poor Punto is ailing, and the good lady needs a reliable car for work. This […]

A. is out this evening, which means I should be able to get them all wrapped […]

Should probably explain Friday’s entry. 🙂 A. was out at a party with a whole bunch of church friends, and the Mick in question asked her what I was up to – would I be sitting in front of the computer? She said I would be, but that I would doing some work (which was […]

I gather my fanbase has increased by one. Welcome aboard, Mick. 🙂

There seem to be plenty of sites around and about on “How to blog”; talking about what a blog should and shouldn’t be, how to attract readers, and so on… Some go so far as to compare a blog to a newspaper – “You must post every day”! For me, this ‘blog’ has always been […]
