People-Watching Diaries Part 1
People get awfully funny about eating at a table-for-one .  They used to at least: I suspect that with the ubiquity of smartphones the fact that someone is eating or drinking alone does not mean they're not engaged in a detailed conversation about the footb...

Why dating sites are bollocks
In the past I've mentioned in these pages that forming a new relationship isn't really an option for me unless I've decided to damn myself for eternity .  Despite this, I'm human and as liable to develop a crush on somebody as the next man.  Precisely this ...

Kicking off the week
The week has started out busy here.  As per usual, I was up at 7am and at the office at 8am.  I put it down to the very active weekend that I felt a bit underpowered this morning.  It was a great feeling when the coffee kicked in: not unlike the moment in '...

I’m starting this post at the Lomond Hotel .  Kinda odd that I’ve
lived around here so long and never darkened its door.  Here I am in the
