Tackling Tricky Predicaments Head-On

We have all felt the tension bubbling for weeks now, and are on tenterhooks waiting to find out what is going to happen as it is all a little up in the air at the moment. Some people dread the football season coming around once again, whilst others revel in the fact that their weekends …

Straight as a Die

            People are strange creatures. They do not realise how odd their behaviour is sometimes. Or maybe they do; and simply do not care. You get those who will do their very best to avoid any sort of physical contact when stationed close to unknown individuals, or just tend to …

That’s Entertainment!

Engineered for Success

If you need urgent assistance and there is no one on hand to help, then you often find yourself scrabbling around for answers, not knowing which way to turn. Confusing though it is; you seem to act on your instincts and use your nous rather than resort to desperate measures, as you are a rather …
