Inattentional Blindness

I have to confess, I struggled with this one. Amber Guyger was justified in shooting black man, Dallas ex-police chief says. I’d have to say this ex-police dude is totally wrong. A woman, a police woman, wasn’t paying attention to what she was doing, walks into an apartment she thought was her own, shoots and…

Geeked out

In addition to taking Ruth and her Mum to Heathrow airport, I geeked out a bit.  I figured if I’m going to get back into the blogging game and re-define for myself through it, then I best clean-up the back end a bit. Basically backing up my site, which I did through Jetpack. I went…

I couldn’t believe how big the team was

I’m sat in the corner of my hotel room at the Novotel at Stanstead working on the blog on this tiny desk. Doll Parts and airplanes taking off for destinations unknown are my soundtrack. In a few hours, I will be co-delivering a team-building workshop with my friend Nicola Jones. https://youtu.be/-HANsLmAhxA If you’re one of…

What is the number one rule of Funk?

Inspiration is wild. And it can come from anywhere, anytime. I literally stumbled upon this 1 min 20-sec video of the one and only Bootsy Collins explaining the power of The One and it lit my whole morning up. I’m sure I’ll be buzzing the rest of the day just from this video. The #1…
