The start of the year is traditionally a time to reflect on the year that has passed, evaluate your life and see what changes you want to make. You may be a little tired of everyone talking about their new year resolutions, however the time we all take off in December to spend with family
Disaster rarely gives you a heads up when it is going to strike. I was reminded of this last night when I created a small thermonuclear explosion in my kitchen last night. After completing an article for WPMU Dev, I sat down with my girlfriend to watch a movie. We decided to have some popcorn
It’s that time of year again where most of us in the Western world will be celebrating Christmas. Whether you are religious or not (I’m not), this is a great time to sit back, indulge in too much food and spend time with family. When you are young, Christmas is all about toys and games.
The longer you live in this world, the more you realise how short life is. Every year gets shorter and the dreams that many people have never become a reality. That is why you need to be proactive in life. If there is something you want to do or somewhere you want to go, you

Every country is known for something. Scotland is known for many things…some good, some not so good.

Being born the year Thatcher became Prime Minister of Britain, I can’t remember a time the Conservatives (Torys) were popular in Scotland.
