Weekly Roundup, Friday 21 July, 2017

Good morning Although most of us have been focused on getting the most enjoyment out of our wonderful summer at present, I’ve been concentrating simultaneously on two very different things – the upcoming late fall, and next year’s early summer.  Could I ask you to consider these two time periods too, because we have lovely […]

Good morning I hope you had a nice long break for July 4 last week.  I did, although in truth I spent most of it working on what I’m now terming our Grand Expedition of Great Britain next June.  You can decide whether it is grand or not – there’s an article telling you more […]

Good morning As much as I enjoy traveling, it is always good to be home again.  Perhaps that’s the true concept of ‘home’ – the place you’re always most happy to return to. My return from London on Delta was surprisingly good.  Things got off to a rocky start with the plane that was supposed […]

Good morning After several weeks of pressing distractions, I’m back this week with the probably final (sixth) part of my series on the future of transportation. This week, it is time to look at the nonsense and hype surrounding flying cars.  While the abstract concept of a dual purpose vehicle has enormous appeal, the reality […]

Good morning What a crazy week it has been, with the TSA managing to set a new low for inanity and insanity. We’ve seen some terrible things in the past – with the worst perhaps being the global ban on all electronics on all flights, and their extended insistence on subjecting us to potentially dangerous […]
