Where is it all going to end, and when?

The times I live in

THE STEPPING MACHINE Last night, after yet another day spent largely in front of a computer screen (for reasons of both necessity and choice) – bar one short trip by car for a food shop – at about 5.00pm I deliberately set off to stride up to my gym for a session intended to ‘blow the [...]

Checking things out

Purely in the cause of promoting the spread of general knowledge, public education and in case it may also be of interest to discerning Rust readers (obviously), this morning I provide a link to a piece I spotted on novel career opportunities by a lady who goes by the name of Venus O’Hara, as [...]
