Weekly Roundup, Friday 22 September, 2017

Good morning It is a great pleasure to start off another week with another round of heartfelt thanks to the people who generously added their names to our 2017 Supporters list.  We are now at 126 Supporters after two weeks of this year’s annual fundraising drive, compared to 122 after two weeks last year and […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 8 September, 2017

Good morning Although official summer continues for another two weeks, traditional summer has finished, the schools are back, and traffic patterns, at least in Seattle, are returning to their terribly jammed state.  Perhaps Amazon’s announcement this week of creating a second HQ in North America employing as many as 50,000 people – a crazy concept […]

Good morning I hope your summer is proving as wonderful as mine is here.  At times like this, it is hard to think of living anywhere else in the world, but think about it, I did, after noting an article on Forbes suggesting I could quit my job and live in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, for […]

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 […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 26 May, 2017

This weekend marks the traditional start of summer.  Here in the Seattle area, summer came a week or more early; and let’s all hope for a lovely Memorial Day weekend. The AAA are forecasting the most Memorial Day travel since 2005, with an increase of 5.5% in people flying, and 2.4% in people driving.  In […]

Good morning An interesting week this week, and a rather portentous one.  While, for once, there were no leaks prior to Mr Comey’s firing, we’re being subjected to what seems to be a deliberately orchestrated series of leaks to prepare us for what increasingly seems like will become an unavoidable new reality – electronic bans […]
