Just a quick note to mark the end of 2009 here on the blog. Thanks to everyone who has read, commented, linked, or emailed, and look forward to more blogging goodness in 2010!
Although I grew up next door to a bus depot, these days I don’t often need a bus to get me from one place to another. So it’s not without a sense of irony that I find myself – yesterday’s freshly purchased travel 10 in hand – in need of a bus, and the drivers […]
For many years I’ve wanted to be in a situation where I could put some computer training together for people who are about to enter the world of Christian ministry. As with most not-for-profit organisations, the budgets don’t always stretch to the point where full-time IT staff can be engaged to help with the challenges […]
If you have thought about sponsoring me for Movember, to help raise money to fight prostate cancer and men’s depression, but haven’t acted on that thought, there’s still time to donate.

Jordan sent me a link to this story about The Wilderness of Childhood, which reminded me of an article that showed a map of the extent of child-roaming from one generation to the next. It seems that the current generation of children will never know the joy of roaming the neighbourhood on their BMX bikes, […]
There have been a lot of encouraging stories coming out of the Man Week posts, but the one that tipped me over the edge to actually participate was from Scott Drummond. Gavin Heaton and Mark Pollard are putting together a book of these kinds of collections, ready in time for Father’s Day, called The Perfect […]
