What space is really stuffed with...
 
This is incredible!
Fellow space nerds, I come bringing sweet internet relief for the Monday doldrums. It’s stuffin.space, a real-time, 3D-visualised map of all objects looping around Earth, from satellites to orbital trash. <a href="http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2015/07/heres-a-real-time-map-of-all-the-objects-in-earths-orbit">Read More >></a>

True enough. helping the banks is one thing, but to prop up a system that will always be doomed to fail is ridiculous. They borrowed and borrowed to pay for that system, and then when there was no money to borrow, it was a wake up time. If I'm correct, I think the debt was 125% of GDP when all this started, that's just mental. Looks to me that even the Greek government wants to live on welfare.. Lmao.. Puts a whole new meaning to the Giro Check.. 😁

What does George Osborne think he's doing in the UK?  Hammer those that can least afford it while letting those that can most afford it carry on exploiting the well reported tax loopholes they use!

Engineers get stuff done!
Introduction
Steve Marquis,

I'm a people person and since people are at the heart of most problems, I'm also something of a problem solver!

I'm still a design/consulting engineer at heart, spent 30 years in IT/comms after a mech eng start, worked in virtually every industry, now retired to run a pub in the UKs NE Wales mountains. That pub is now the first pub in Wales to sport a Post Office Local over a bar!

Having bought product to market I'm using my marketing skills and IT abilities to promote the business via our website and social media. I'm a Google+ early adopter and keen to develop it's use for small business and share that experience with the wider community.

I've been reflecting on the above and it occurs to me that these days I am more of a conduit rather than a creative for original thinking, however, I do sometimes have my moments!
Bragging rights
I've been a hands-on Mechanical, Design, IT & Comms Consulting Engineer that when I've had the opportunity, project/programme manages, markets, sells and writes about it all too! I'm also a wannabe Permaculturist!

One of the best butchers in the land. Stunning fayre, really well looked after and presented with a smile. They seem to have more UK national gold awards than wall space.
