Ramblings From The Road

Thanks for joining me for the fourth edition of Ramblings From The Road. You'll probably notice the visual style and layout is different to before - that's because I changed what Newsletter app I'm using. I'm now with Mailpoet, which is a far better service.

Enough boring you with geekspeak, let's get on with things! Go grab a brew, sit down, and tell me how you are, and what you have been up to? I'm genuinely interested, so talk to me - just reply to this email.
