Quick Links 27th February 2017

Each week I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read, inspired me or just sparked my interest in the previous week, with a little background and my thoughts and other things that I’ve been up to in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.

Life In General.

It’s been a busy week, mostly with work related stuff (see below) but I’m still working through things on my Grandma’s and my Dad’s estates. It’s difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel on either of these at the moment, but it does make me realise that there are things in my own life that need to be more in order in case anything were ever to happen to me, particularly if it was unexpected. I also attended the scattering of my Grandma’s ashes.


A few work related meetings this week, and also another bid to prepare which was due on Friday. I did my bit at the start of the week, so assume that it got submitted, but I haven’t had it confirmed as yet.

I also had a meeting with a second group of students from Solent University. This group are helping me look at ways to grow my existing business. A lot of my work is with repeat customers, so that’s fine, until something happens. Hopefully they will help me to find new customers too.

Currently Reading

Wizard and Glass by Stephen King [GoodReads]. The next book in the Dark Tower series,  a book I’m reading for an online group.

Jaguar Vs. Giant Anteater – It sounds a bit like some 70’s b-movie title, but the camera trap video shows just how little we see of what is actually going on out in the wild [LINK]

The Week In Wildlife – In Pictures

New Life In The Solar System – I’m always interested when these sorts of stories are published, but it looks like we’re a long way from knowing what if anything is out there [LINK]
