  3. 2013, the year I learnt to Ski.

    Only 9:30 and already it 24 degrees. I thought remember last month? Yes, lovely and cool. Don't know if any of you ski, but highly recommend it. Took me a number of weekends to get the confidence. Think it's safe to say I've got the skiing bug now. Here I've got a selection of photos taken on...

  7. Why contractors hate pets

    Personally, I don't like pets. You feed them, they poop. So what? They need care and attention which takes me away from earning huge sums of cash, drinking beer and driving my sports car. Not to mention, you don't want some old dog howling just when you've got some old dog about to howl :wink ...

  11. One of my pet hates about contracting

    Is filling in bespoke timesheet systems to appease the Client. Enter your hours against a specific contract number, job code, TFS code or whatever. It's fine if you have a job code, but if your work dries up, what do you put into the tool? Seems to be the same pattern for me. Run out of work,...

  19. Can we believe anything we are told in the press?

Yet the latest Newsweek(an American mag) tells us how much better Europe (not UK) is emerging from the recession. And its a fact that Germany is a bigger exporter than the US (which...
