The American Resolution

The new year is coming up fast and may people will be making resolutions, those promises we make to ourselves knowing we are unlikely to keep them. A lot of those promises will have to do with weight loss, especially after the excessive eating we have all done over the holiday season. Some will turn […]

La Dolce Vita

I don’t seem to recommend too many books that would be classed as love stories though I do read them from time to time. I guess, in part, it’s because there are few really good ones. Oh, there’s lots of sappy ones, and tear-jerker ones, and many with bits and pieces that speak to you […]

The Future Is Now!

In the mid-80s I read a book by the brilliantly accurate American futurist, Alvin Toffler. The Third Wave changed the way I looked at things and changed my life forever. Armed with a keen desire to ride that wave into the future, 1989 found me online with a 1200 baud modem attached to my Commodore […]
