Sending greetings to all.
No matter what your beliefs or background, this time of year does impact on our lives. Even if it is just news and media, walking down the local high street and even our online communities.
I would like to share this video with you which was sent to me by my friend. If nothing else I hope it makes you smile (even if just a little).
On that note I am off to do some shopping! Ha who am I kidding…..
Enjoy, have fun but most of all take care.
Following a number of requests for updates about what is happening and general professional development requests via email I have set up an email newsletter.

As I do not post here often I have taken the decision to ‘officially’ retire this blog (for now). I will be utilising my scoop it page for posts. I will still be active in all my other social media forms, so please do make contact all links on the left.
Congratulations to all. Most of these interesting blogs I was already aware of but a couple that seemed to have passed me by, so sharing here in case you too have missed the insights that these excellent blogs offer.
I say a heart felt thanks to one and all for sharing your stories, thoughts and insights. I most definatly learn a great deal from your sharing.
I look forward to following more in 2014.
