Comment: 2019/04/15 - Notre-Dame de Paris.
Avant de connaître Paris, je connaissais Notre-Dame. Je me souviens d'avoir regardé une très ancienne version de "Le Bossu de Notre-Dame" avec mon père. C'était un dimanche après-midi pluvieux à Stornoway.
Même enfant, j'étais surpris par l'ampleur et la beauté de "la vieille dame de Paris". Je ne suis pas religieux, mais les images du feu m'attristent. Je ne connaissais que légèrement Notre-Dame et je ne peux pas imaginer ce que signifie le feu pour les gens qui y vivent et y travaillent.

Comment: 2019/01/14 - Credit Reference Agencies.
No doubt they would argue to the contrary, but my own circumstances to not align to that. Also the fact that they then charge people to monitor the accuracy of their own data by selling "identity theft protection", is not lost on me.
I had to laugh. I had clearly booked a Starwood Hotel many, many years ago. They told me that they'd lost a big chunk of fairly important data and were still able to e-mail to tell me this. I reckon that I've had about two dozen credit and debit cards in the time since I made that booking. Some will have been new, and some will be reissues.
However, those nice people at Marriott have paid for some form of identity theft protection for a year, so I clicked the button to sign up. And then I realised that they were going to take the data I gave them to confirm my identity and ship it outside the EU. I mean, really? I appreciate that it doesn't make something bad, but it does erode your confidence in something you have no confidence in anyway.

Comment: 2019/01/01 - Happy New Year!
I'm honoured and humbled to be on the Isle of Lewis, sharing it with the 100TH anniversary of the Iolaire Disaster. For that reason, we're not going to take our usual tongue-in-cheek look back at the year.
Some things are more important.
