I finally got to see Logan last night, after a couple of false starts over the weekend. And I can say without hesitation, it was worth the wait. This was the Wolverine film that we needed to see when X-Men Origins: Wolverine was released and definitely beats the pants off 2013’s The Wolverine. Logan was […]

It’s already early March (where did January and February go?!) but so far work has taken me to Dublin three times and Barcelona twice. Both excellent venues, but slightly less so when you’re working hard. All the same, I love to travel. Work takes me interesting places and I (normally) get to stay in lovely […]

I was working in Barcelona Thursday and Friday of this week. It’s something I usually look forward to as I get some time in one of my favourite cities, work with great clients and arrange travel set to a very human schedule.

I spent an exceedingly pleasant birthday weekend in Berlin last week. Friday morning to Monday evening was not nearly enough to take in the whole experience, but despite historic sites all around me, I spent more time in the sauna than any other place. Let’s rewind.

To cut a long story short, they were a much-delayed Christmas present for @FrankDJS and proved very elusive online and in-store. While I was passing the Regent Street Apple Store yesterday afternoon, I popped in on a […]

I’m in Dublin for work right now, staying here until Thursday night. And lucky for me, I get to stay in the town where I grew up, Dun Laoghaire, which is south of the City.  I landed to a surprising – but welcome! – amount of winter sunshine, so as soon as I’d unpacked and […]

I’ve just checked-in to my hotel here in Dublin and had to share this… I got a taxi out from the airport and had a surprisingly nice chat with the driver, considering we were discussing Brexit and Trump. We both felt a little helpless and both agreed that focusing on the sunshine was probably more […]

I’ll raise my hand right now – this has not been a good week. In fact, it’s been such a ‘not good week’, that I’ve avoided weighing myself so I don’t have to see the harsh reality. The plan has been somewhat abandoned for the last five days or so. Don’t worry, I’m not ‘get the […]

After a few weeks of daily use, it’s time to reflect on just how useful the Amazon Echo Dot really is. A hint? I now have two of them!
