Monday Musings

Hi Pogue, Have you ever heard about herd mentality 🐑? It’s a real thing, honest. If you haven’t heard about it you have certainly witnessed it over the last week right at your own back door.

Monday Musings.

Pogue, A new week starts. I’m back on a road trip…at last and, as the norm for road trips we started our day in a coffee shop, this time in Bamburgh.

But, hey, what the heck. I am actually proud of where I live. It’s a great city. I think the … Continue reading Fuddy Duddy?

Some say weird, I say different.

Dear Pogue, I have a friend who has just gone to university. "So what" I hear you ask, "aren't a whole bunch of kids off to university about now?" Yes, that's true, but my friend didn't go with the hoards of 18 and 19 year olds fresh from school, most trying to delay employment as … Continue reading Some say weird, I say different.
