My Blog

Posted on
A random image … because

This is where I occasionally post something that seems important enough to put out there. The pages are where I have put some thoughts on areas of interest – and then the relevant posts are listed there for any further interest you might have. The Serious and Trivial Topics over there on the right are where the random thoughts and streams of consciousness are. This Blog is mostly for people who know me. Some of the content is fluff. The rest is probably interesting for only some people. Down the bottom you can see a preview of some recent posts.

You will find discussions about the environment and science here. You will probably find more about Government than you might like to read. That is ok, read what you like and ignore the rest.

BTW. As of 17 January 2019 I am updating this blog. Because WordPress now makes it enjoyable again.
