This is an interesting telling of the early years in Southern Africa as depicted by the lives of the men and women who become the chief characters of this interesting historical novel. The characters who contribute to the variety in this story of the late nineteenth, early twentieth century are almost larger than life and the very expressive use of English by the author ensures that every nuance of description is used in the telling. The women are portrayed as being emotionally strong with an insight into the ways of men and of using those quirks to their advantage or to suit their purposes whilst the men are usually strong and robust.

Christmas is nearly upon us (in case you failed to notice all the signage and bling that's been adorning every retail outlet ever since Easter!) and as if you didn't have enough to worry about, spare a thought for your pets at this time.

Have you been stung by the not-so-friendly double tax agreements, which allow you to be taxed on the rental income in two countries but denies you any tax credit?

Ella Wheeler Wilcox:

One ship sails East,
And another West,
By the self-same winds that blow,
Tis the set of the sails
And not the gales,
That tells the way we go.

Talking ‘Bottle Shops…

One of the toughest people to win over (when I'm talking business and/or systems of course), is my wife!
I'd be the first to admit that I am not normally the most organised person in the world ... which according to her is why I need systems! And she's right! If it wasn't for the systems we've implemented our businesses would be a mess.
