So, here are my top 10 favourites from 2020: Read the rest of this entry »

It’s that time of year again when we send and receive Christmas cards and letters with updates from friends and family, so in that spirit here is the annual message from our tribe.

Obviously, it’s been an odd year, but we’ve made it through and still have a smile on our faces.  It was our first full year in Bendigo and moved into our new house in April this year.  We had a block of land to build on, but needed to sell it when my work situation changed, but it has worked out well and we now have a lovely place on the edge of the bush.

Today is a momentous day for me as it’s this blog’s 10 year anniversary.

It’s quite a milestone for this humble little site and whilst this is still quite a niche blog, I’m proud of the achievement.

Over the past 10 years, I have written over 2,600 posts and had over 2.7M views from all around the world (except North Korea).

I just want to say thanks for the opportunity to share my thought with you guys.  I have had some incredibly loyal readers and I am grateful to you each.

One of my annual goals is to read 25 books on my trusty kindle, and this year has been another year of learning and entertainment from some terrific writers.

I try to read a variety of genres and authors, ensuring that I don’t become too insular, whilst maintaining my knowledge in areas of life that are important and interesting to me.

So, of the 25 books that I read in 2019, here are my top 10: Read the rest of this entry »
