The Day I Interviewed Patrick Moore

Back around 1999 we were about to get a Scottish Parliament for the first time in 300 years. I was also interested in making my life a little more interesting at the time and decided I wanted to mix with some¬†celebrities. I’m not normally that keen to meet...

Criticism

I am writing this from my hospital bed and I’m still a little stoned after surgery. I’ve just been reading purple cow again by Seth godin. I love that man (that will be the drugs). Just read a wee gem “we’ve been raised with a false belief: we...

Against the odds

If I had put in a request for a day in February, on the west coast of Scotland, with blue sky’s, no wind and a balmy 14C, I think it would have been refused. If I had asked for these conditions, so as I could enjoy a weekend break with my wife, I think pretty...
