Sculpture in Suffolk and Norfolk


I like sculpture and they've just created an archive of all of the public sculpture in Suffolk and Norfolk.

Very interesting and well worth looking at.

One Year On


Celia died this day a year ago.

I like to think that I've moved on, but I'm still fragile at times. I've travelled a lot and I can cook a bit too. I've also been to a lot of football including matches at Wembley, Minsk and Florence.

But perhaps today is the biggest moving on at all.

I'm starting a new software project.

What it does is not for disclosure at present, but if I say, that hopefully it will be a revolutionary way of looking at data and may well create a new industry from the depths of the Credit Crunch, then that will be enough for now.

I am not alone in this venture. Like me four of the protaganists in this new Movement are past their sell-by date, but not hopefully past that date when wisdom, enthusiasm and sense start to fade. The other is a bit younger, but he's of the next generation.

Whether we succeed or fail, will only be down to our efforts.

Who's Paying for the Mess?


I lend money on a peer-to-peer lending site on the Internet. Rates to borrowers have gone up despite the cuts in base rate over the last few weeks. So this probably reflects what the banks are charging. i.e. More. Savers are also being screwed.

The only people who seem to be benefitting are those that got us into this mess in the first place. The bankers!
