WOW! A New Challenge

There is a saying in reporting that you need to ask 5 questions to get any story covered properly. Those questions are simply Who, what, why, where and when.

Urban Hymn

The Verve had an idea that the drugs didn’t work. Whilst there may be an element of truth in there somewhere the truth is that the drugs do work and are very effective but they all carry a warning and most have side effects. So all in all you pays your monies and takes your…

Flowers in the rain

Here’s something you won’t hear often “I was wrong” I know! I couldn’t believe it either but it just goes to show that everyone now and again makes a misjudgement, dammit, makes a mistake and has to stand up and admit it.

The Sun Always Shines on TV

Before I launch into the usual blah blah blah, ‘it’s all about me’ tirade of selfishness covered up in a chocolate coating to make it look my concerns and views take into consideration those outside my immediate close circle, I should issue an ego warning. Because this time there is no sugary sweet tasty bit…
