What Motivates Me?

I posed this as a question to myself today. Vikki and I were discussing her Buck You business when I found myself envying her motivation. By creating her own range of ethical horse gear and by giving lessons on a new, science-based yet ethical way of training horses, she is truly in her element. It’s a dream vocation and I … Read More

Perfection Is An Illusion

“The grass is always greener on the other side”, “Keeping up with the Jones’” – just a couple of sayings that have been part of British lexicon for decades. Not sure when they came into being but I can imagine, when TV first came out, the desire to not be the last on the block with rabbit ears helped boost … Read More

When Ego Is The Enemy

We all have an ego. It is the thing that drives us to succeed, the thing that makes us believe that we can achieve and progress. It has driven human evolution moving us out of caves and into skyscrapers. We need it, yet it can also be our biggest enemy. If you don’t keep your ego in check, or understand … Read More

Never Stop Asking Questions

How many people do you know that are stuck in a rut, never deviating from opinions (even when presented with contrary facts) and seem proud to be a luddite? A lot of people form their view-points, likes and dislikes at an early age – usually informed by parents, family, friends or locality – and refuse to change them. This is … Read More

Every Day Can Be Like Sunday

Yesterday was Sunday. Like millions of people in the UK, I spent it doing whatever-the-hell I wanted. That turned out to be a visit to an antique fair, a mooch around an art gallery, a blast through a supermarket, a trip through our fields to the river and, finally, a movie. Today is Monday. Unlike millions of people in the … Read More

Is Your Food Killing You?

What do processed meats have in common with tobacco smoke, asbestos and plutonium? Give up? Quite unbelievably, they are classified as a Group 1 Carcinogenic. As someone who, up until 18 months ago, was a regular consumer of processed meats (mainly in the form of ham, turkey rashers and packet chicken) I find this pretty shocking. Of course, I am … Read More

45 Not Out

It’s my birthday today (it’s OK, I know your present is lost in the post): 45 years old. I don’t think I look it and I don’t think I feel it. But, there it is. Somehow, I am 45. I used to be 20. Fuck it, I used to be 5. In fact, pick any number under 45 and I … Read More
