Thanks for visiting my website and, my blog ...

... you are all welcome here! Here, I write about things that interest me and I hope you find them piquing your interest too.

So, what do I like writing and talking about? I often focus on what is going on in the ever so sexy world of Human Resources (or Personnel as it quaintly used to be known as) - developments in areas such as:

  • how organisations can improve the attendance and well-being of their people interest me, also
  • ideas on how to deal with the management of work-related stress,
  • why should we care about diversity or learning and development? and
  • how to motivate and get the best out of people?

It’s a pretty broad canvas!

Outside of HR, I write on other areas that interest me so that covers the range from features on Film, Theatre and Music from local amateur theatre to the release of brand new films or TV series.

As a Christian and someone who is very spiritual, I am keen writing about Faith and Religion.

I have been a private Do It Yourself Investor for several decades so I also enjoy posting about the world of Personal Finance & Investment.

Apart from being a Charlton Athletic season ticket holder, I love football, athletics, cricket and Olympic events so you can catch my views on Sport.

Anything else I write up you can find in Miscellaneous

    Just a few days ago (24th March to be precise), I was fortunate enough to go along to commemorate the 75th anniversary of one of the greatest WWII escapes, that at Stalag Luft III in Poland in 1943. This resulted in 76 Allied Prisoners of War...

    Now here is a rarity for you. Fire! (1977) was actually a made for TV movie that found its way on a theatrical cinema release here in the UK. It went on release to ABC cinemas in 1978 and although you will never see it listed (if at all) as a great...

    Millions Like Us(1943) is a personal favourite of mine even though it falls into the description of a propaganda film. It was made shortly after the wartime government introduced female conscription for single women between 21 and 30 and one of...
