Tax practitioner solving your difficult tax problems, business connector, freelance writer, blogger, aspiring photographer, radio amateur G4MCU
Introduction

I am a tax practitioner in the UK, which means that I help people find their way through the maze of rules and legislation which run to many thousands of pages on paper, though I keep my copies virtually of course to help save the trees.

Many people might think that tax is boring but to me it is fun. There is a lot more to it than filling forms. I won't explain why, but if you have a tax problem, why not ask me, take a weight off your mind and let me enjoy myself.

Of course I also review the tax affairs of the business and the owners if they wish to save themselves even more money! You don't have to have the whole menu. If you would like business advice without the tax bit, or the other way round, that's up to you, the client; that is if you are a client. Anyway, you should not try to save tax at the expense of your business. The tax tail should not wag the commercial dog.

I love helping businesses improve and make steps towards success and I have helped many different types or traders and professionals. I have a great network of professionals to support me. I don't know everything but I am bound to know someone who can help you. Just ask!

I write a lot for marketing purposes and in my blogs. Have a look at On Our Bikes. I am happy to write for others on their websites. You can have technical web copy, practical useful articles or my opinion, but I do expect to be paid for any marketing material of course.

I will be pleased to introduce you to anyone in my network if I think it would be useful, and can connect you to any specialist business adviser you need from the wide selection to whom I have access. Please don't try to sell to me, though.

I am making a come back on the photography scene and I am keen to learn from others what I have missed out on in my absence.

Let's connect and learn from each other!

The pirates were game-changers for European commercial radio. All good of course.

Strange idea.
 
THIS FCC PROPOSAL IS NOT GOOD FOR LINUX OPERATING SYSTEM FANS!

FCC considering proposal to lock down computing devices (routers, PCs, phones, SDRs) to prevent modification

The website LibrePlanet.org reports:

Right now, the FCC is considering a proposal to require manufacturers to lock down computing devices (routers, PCs, phones) to prevent modification if they have a "modular wireless radio"[1][2] or a device with an "electronic label"[3]. The rules would likely:

Restrict installation of alternative operating systems on your PC, like GNU/Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, etc.

Prevent research into advanced wireless technologies, like mesh networking and bufferbloat fixes

Ban installation of custom firmware on your Android phone

Discourage the development of alternative free and open source WiFi firmware, like OpenWrt

Infringe upon the ability of amateur radio operators to create high powered mesh networks to assist emergency personnel in a disaster.

Prevent resellers from installing firmware on routers, such as for retail WiFi hotspots or VPNs, without agreeing to any condition a manufacturer so chooses.

Take Action Now!

The FCC is asking for comments on this proposal. The most important thing you can do is comment on the FCC's proposal and tell them you want to be able to control your computing devices. Will you do this?

Comment deadline extended to October 9.

Don't be fooled by Klout scores for the lazy.
Is there anything less influential, than a self-proclaimed social media influencer? There’s a lot of chatter online about so-called influencers. I’m not talking about influential people or influential brands. I’m actually referring to the exact opposite: People who have very little real-world influence, yet market themselves as influencers. Allow me to explain. Famous quotes and endless …
