    Last week I was in 121 at a seminar/conference thing organised by the Church of Scotland’s Church and Society Council.

  • The joys of the internet

    At last, the true value of the internet is revealed: Reviews for Bic Crystal ballpoint pen If you have a lot of free time (or even just a little), what could be better than writing a review of a classic writing implement? Worth a skim read as some of the reviews are hilarious, but […]
