January 2017 blog

It has been so long time since I blogged but I promise this year is going to be different. This is because my internet Tsar is going to keep me on the straight and narrow. We’ve just launched our new website and very good it looks too.

Many thanks to Danielle at Daniitea Media for all her help and continued support. If you need somebody to look after your website and social media in sensible plain English, I can heartily recommend her.

A great deal of water has gone under the bridge since I last wrote. The UK voters have decided that we would much rather control our own destiny and borders thank you very much so we have decided to disentangle ourselves from the EU.

The US voters have decided that they would much rather control their own destiny and borders thank you very much so they have decided to disentangle themselves from their political establishment.

It all looks very worrying but I like change. Change is good, change equals opportunity so we may as well seize the day and make the best of it. The other thing that happened was that I had my first book published. Available from the IET, it is jauntily entitled, Guide to Metering Systems and is an indispensable tool for anybody considering installing secondary meters.

On another note, I watch with interest the steps that Mr Trump is going to, to protect US citizens from the reds under the bed, whoops I meant Jihadists. I recently read that over a ten year average 2 people in the US have been killed by Islamic immigrants. This compares with 11,737 shot by fellow Americans, 69 by lawnmowers and 21 by armed toddlers. I think there is a moral there somewhere, like it’s a bit pointless slamming the door shut when the man with gun is already in the room. See you soon.
