In just a few short weeks from the date of posting this, I will be hitting a significant point in my life. I was born in 1963 so the maths should be straight forward. Over the coming year I will be posting a series of posts where, as much for myself as anyone else, I will attempt to define what I now have learnt over the period of these years in regards to several subjects. This may appear to some to be an act of self indulgance on my behalf, but the reality is that for the few who will see this, the numbers will not be of such a scale that it would concern me as such.

   Now all I have to do is a) find the time and b) organize my thoughts into something resembling coherence.
