The bucket-list – funding the work

And, yeah, this is where it gets kinda scary. For me, anyway… I hate the money-economy. (Understatement… But explaining that is for another post than this one.) The reality, though, is that I do have to find some way to work with

The bucket-list – next steps

Frameworks, tools and so on. All the stuff that’s in the bucket-list. There’s a right way to do it. There’s a wrong way to do it. (There’s also an all-too-common incompetent way to do it – throw together a mish-mash of half-baked

The bucket-list – a clarification

I need to do a follow-on to my previous post ‘The bucket-list‘, to add a few clarifications. It’s not that I’m doing an “I’m taking my bat and ball and going home so there”. It isn’t even about the money

Maggie’s Farm

We’re two days away from what will almost certainly be one of the greatest collective-blunders ever to impact the US, and possibly the world as well. Here in Britain, we have a similar collective-blunder that is fast approaching its endgame.

Normal Service Will Be Resumed…

Yes, I’ve been quiet here for quite a while. Apologies for the absence and all that. Various reasons. One has been the un-joys that is the so-called ‘holiday season’ – a month-long hell of family, ghastly fake-music and faked-up pseudo-jollity everywhere, the

Business-novel – chapter 19-21

And yes, another instalment for the business-novel that I’m working on at present – the previous posts to date have been for Chapters 00-03, Chapters 04-08, Chapters 09-12 and Chapters 13-18. (For reference, everything so far I’d written back in 2013, and this will
