2016 was such a bad year for famous deaths and incredible (in my opinion) political decisions and some are still grating now, months after they occurred – but I see that as a plus point in some respects, as it means that I still have passion and energy about some things.

Archive has now been removed.

The very observant of you will have noticed that I`ve removed the “Archive” section from the top of this site.
