The Internet of Fascinating Things …
Being active online means coming across far too much good stuff than I can personally read during the week or can be shared on my Twitter and Facebook timelines without annoying the hell out of friends and followers. So I’ve decided to collect them all together in one handy blog post that I can enjoy at my leisure, along with the hope that you do too 🙂
Miscellaneous: Bikeshedding and Parkinson’s Law – In thirty odd years of employment, I’ve come across this a lot! I’ve been to meetings where the only decision made was – the date of the next meeting! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkinson%27s_law

Quote of the Week:
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” – Mark Twain
I’ve a stinking cold and took an opportunity between work stints to get some fresh air – the sun had briefly made an appearance and I didn’t need a coat!
The southern facing side was still quite colourful and I’ve been very shoddy of late in sharing any Wordless Wednesdays. So I thought I’d make up for it now! (And I’m posting this direct from my phone too, just to try it out, in case it looks a bit weird!)
