Common Hold

What is needed is equal standard of housing for all. Common Hold is another type of management company for buildings owned by a owner management company. It was introduced in England in 2002. I read through the government guidelines. This concept is all about owners of flats within the system having the right to determine… Continue reading Common Hold

What3Words

is the best logistics invention for mapping. The world is divided into squares and each square is given a name made up of three words. This is brilliant and it stops apps sending you to the wrong address. Because post codes are misleading as they encompass larger areas. The What3Words address is that one little… Continue reading What3Words

Organic contradiction

The new Abel and Cole TV ad must be music to all the nature lovers who just thrive of environmental issues. This ad personifies all the squabbles XR demos are trying to tell us and attempt to bring solutions. It describes how our need for greed is responsible for all our ills. Abel and Cole… Continue reading Organic contradiction

Airlines on the forefront of freedom fighting

I am really glad that Ryanair take up the fight for a freedom to travel. As much as I do not fly nor have a car, I defend the right of everybody to move freely.

It doesn't matter whether we use 'What three words' or any other Sat Nav, it depends on what is programmed into the software, which determines… Continue reading Getting there

The u-turn

Yesterday the Prime Minister announced that all who can should go back to work but walk, cycle or use cars and avoid public transport.

The desperate time government

They call it gender discrimination but in the times when women stayed at home to look after the kids, we could manage when a school closed. Now all are drafted in as workers and when the workers fall ill, there is nobody to run services and nobody to look after children. Not even in an… Continue reading The desperate time government
