Who Are You?

I'm an imposter. One day someone will realise and soon after everyone else will see it. My writing is poor, and what I have to say is better said by other people. I know very little about technology, and I have nothing to share that would improve anyone's experience. Just watch the average tech YouTuber,... Continue Reading →

Pickaxes and Diamonds

Don’t judge me. Recently I’ve started playing Minecraft. Some of you reading this might also play. Most people have probably heard of Minecraft, even if it’s just to buy an expensive Minecraft branded plushie for the kids at Christmas! However, for the uninitiated, Minecraft is what is known as a ‘sandbox’ game. You create a... Continue Reading →

Cast Your ‘Inter’net

To quite a lot of us, it must feel like we’ve always had social media, and that we’ve always been able to tap into the vast reservoir of human knowledge that lives on thousands of servers across the world. But of course, this isn’t the case. I’m in my mid-forties, and the most advanced machine... Continue Reading →

Fear of The Other

I remember, back in the early 2000s, soon after getting engaged to Kathi, being invited around to have a meal as a couple to a married couple’s home. They were, in fact, the first people in the church I’d only recently become a part of, to reach out to us as a newly engaged couple... Continue Reading →

Head and Shoulders?

One evening last year, my youngest son, ten years old at the time, ran himself a bath. He’d been in for a little while when, with his permission, I nipped in to grab something I needed from the bathroom cupboard. I noticed he had added plenty of bubble bath and also that he was in...

Who’s Listening?

I have smart things listening to me everywhere! No, really I do, and, in what might be shocking news for some for you, I don’t really mind. I quite like the idea that all I have to do is say a ‘magic word’ and a smart thing will spring to life and answer my query... Continue Reading →

100 Videos!

Over the last year, I have found myself becoming quite addicted to watching YouTube videos and have subscribed to plenty of channels. (If you fancy subscribing to one more, why not check out my church's YouTube channel: youtube.com/freedomchurchleeds). The choice of channels to which I'm subscribed is quite varied. There are plenty of tech-focused channels,... Continue Reading →

What Day Is It?

There was a comedy/romance movie released in 1993 staring Bill Murray which has attained cult status and is indeed in my top 5 of favourite movies.

Legacy

What legacy are you leaving? I don’t mean money, or property, or any kind of material possession or wealth. What I’m really asking is what memory of you are you planning to leave for the generations to come? This probably warrants further definition too. If you have children and they are of an age where...

DON’T PANIC!

Depending on when you read this article, it may resonate with you, or make you shudder with the memory of what I’m about to describe. I went shopping today. It’s not that I’ve never been shopping before. It’s just today, for the first time since the coronavirus started to take hold, I went to a... Continue Reading →
