Now and again we have an interesting story to tell.

It might be traditionally newsworthy, but then again it might be something designed to educate, inform or amuse the reader. The term blog springs to mind, but I think ‘Musings’ is a much better title. My musings could cover anything and everything, so call back often and prepare to be entertained.

The official link to my ‘Musings’ is via the ‘Blog’ link in the footer of the page – but since you are here – take a look across the page to the right and you will see the archive where you can access my previous ramblings.

 

Enjoy!
