  1. The current speculative frenzy in virtual currency such as Bitcoin is quiet something to behold. More are climbing onto the bandwagon ..... Cash is being slowly closed down ! Where are we going with this , what are the risks and opportunities of such an investment and how will this impact on ex pat life here or elsewhere.
  2. I called an old classmate and asked what he was doing. He replied that he was working on "Aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics, aluminium and steel under a constrained environment." I was impressed... Upon further inquiring, I learned that he was washing dishes with hot water under his wife's supervision.

  4. Pale blue dot

    Feeling smug or vain? Sweat the small stuff? Believe in 'juju'? This will put us in our place! This excerpt from Carl Sagan's book Pale Blue Dot (1994) was inspired by an image taken, at Sagan's suggestion, by Voyager 1 on Feb 14, 1990. From a distance of about 6 billion km Voyager 1, which had completed its primary mission and was leaving the Solar System, was commanded by NASA to turn its camera around and take one last photo of Earth across a great expanse of space, at the request of Carl Sagan. The accompanying words, written 27 yrs ago are still so relevant today. 2017-07-05-VIDEO-00000014.mp4
