Observations

If you have an interest in life, the universe, and everything, then you will have some observations and comments to make about all sorts of things. So it is with us, but we are bold enough to share our thoughts with you. We will stay away from the highly emotive issues of religion and politics, and try to make our views dispassionate and balanced, and where possible laced with a healthy dollop of humour. We hope you enjoy.
