Change Is Good

Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change

Sorry for the grim title. One thing that is certain in life is death. So, it is sad to hear one of the artists that I listened to when I was young has passed away. It came up as breaking news when I was in the kitchen preparing lunch. Sorry for the grim post but […]

Hear The Lionesses Roar

We witnessed history being created this evening when England’s Women’s Football team were crowned the European champions at Wembley Stadium!
