Barry Lamble Blog – Great Start to 2014 | Leicester Blogs | Scoop.it

Stop wasting your time on trivia | Leicester Blogs | Scoop.it
A thought for the new year of 2014. There is a lot of noise in modern life. Finding your meaning is sometimes a matter of filtering everything out except the signal you need. Set aside anything you do that is on this list.

We both sighed as my friend told me about seeing the queues outside the newly opened Frankie and Benny’s at Leicester’s Highcross. Fortunately, we could quickly forget about that because we were going somewhere far more pleasurable.

How different the world would be if..... | Leicester Blogs | Scoop.it
I’ve been spending so much time at the Cemetery lately that I’ve started to think about the ‘what ifs’ of life. What if those who died young had lived and had the chance to make a valuable contribution to society?
