meeting people. considering #people in #meetings

Over the last few days, Monday and Tuesday, I have been involved in two similar efforts be two different organisations. Both efforts tried get a similar outcome while using two different processes. The aim of this post is to try and consider both processes and critically engage with them. I am not trying to comment […]

Footballer gets sent off for passing wind during game. a google translate story.

So the BBC Website has the following story. “A Swedish footballer was sent off for passing wind during a match – with the referee dismissing him for “deliberate provocation” and “unsportsmanlike behaviour”. (Sport Bladet) I clicked the link to Sport Bladet – it is a newspaper in Swedish. I so not speak the Swedish so […]

1000 – a reflection.

I have been blogging for 1000 posts, I have sent 8457 tweets, add this to my recent birthday, and I have been alive for 14247 days on this earth, so probably a time for reflection. I have learned a lot, but no where near enough. I am pretty sure i am good at somethings, and […]

Hi, My Name is scott. Today I want to talk about…

Last winter I bought a winter jacket out of TK Maxx. The joy of shopping at TK Maxx is you never know exactly what you’re going to find. It was a nice jacket from a company I had never heard of … Tenson. The other day I conducted a quick web search and hit upon […]

A New Langauge for Moral Failures in relation to marrage

My #secret is out, I am a ballet dancing, high heel wearing, 40-50 year old woman.

My brother recently become British champion of Decathlon form men aged 40-45. Well done. I have been trying to match my brother, by getting fitter. I doubt I will be running 100m in under 12.54 seconds anytime soon. Before the summer I was running around 9k, slowly but running, and my times for a 22k […]
