Elephants are among the most majestic creatures on our beautiful planet. Their gracious sagacious swagger give that impression that makes you want to grow arms long enough to want to hug them in one swoop. Lions might be the kings… Continue Reading

Day 2 of 7 #ShareTheGood

It was a thrill to take one of my children to football today. Seeing him so excitedly prepare himself for training and get dressed nearly two hours before we left the hours was just cute.   Which made me think… Continue Reading

My 7-day experiment in sharing online goodness

This is nothing new but is something that has often bugged me. Check online news and one would be forgiven for believing the world is full of negativity, deluded terrorists, racist xenophobes, moped thieves, peadophiles, greedy bankers and bonkers politicians.… Continue Reading

Conservatives’ working class support overtake Labour’s: New poll show

During the 2015 General Election, I was asked by a CCHQ press officer to write an article for a popular newspaper which targets the African and Caribbean community. It was an invitation to encourage ethnic minority voters to back the… Continue Reading

How NOT to start a Presidency

I once read somewhere that politicians should avoid fighting with the media that will eventually end up writing their (politicians) obituary. Clearly, the Trump alpha-campaign dog is still on steroids and refuses to let go of the bone called media… Continue Reading

Pres. Obama’s last stand as UN passes resolution 2334

National Citizens Service initiative: Gotta love it

It’s yet a real wonder to me that the perception of young people today remains one of a feckless, irresponsible generation of drug-taking, sex crazed layabouts who have life so easy, while waiting for the bank of mum/dad/England to bail… Continue Reading

Short bits: It’s good to talk

Might texts and emails be limiting your success? Why not try talking instead? I employ about fifty staff in my business with three middle managers. Invariably when one of the three contacts me to discuss an issue they’re having with… Continue Reading
