Mrs Younger returned from a trip to Australia with a friend this week. It seems they had got their passports swapped and nobody in 4 airports noticed , not even our shiny hi-tech Terminal 5 at Heathrow .
An accountant in business
I've been blogging on my website www.formationsdirect.com for some time with my non-PC view of the world of economics,business and other stuff. If you like to read the views of somebody who doesn't "toe the party line" you've come to the right place. Government cock-ups, financial turmoil , business scandals and people's behaviour - I've got something to say about it , whether you like it or not.
Now we've heard it from the Bank of England that "zombie" companies are a drain on capital . So what should you advise a client that is running a zombie firm ? After all, it may well be "their baby" and is most likely providing them with an income .
The current economic climate is making it hard for graduates to find jobs , even those with "proper" degrees . Perhaps it's time to step back and ask whether a degree is actually relevant for a career .
Here we go again . House prices are rising and everybody is getting into a lather . This time however it's a wee bit different becasue it seems to be "worse" in London.
Well, we've had our money laundering audit and the dreaded letter arrived a couple of weeks ago . I suppose it is a bit like a health inspector in a restaurant , they'll always find something that is not quite to their satisfaction.
Once again I listened to a radio program about rising energy costs.
It's impossible to escape reports of wasted food , every few months . When I was a wee boy in the 1970s there was no such thing, because our parents and grandparents came from a generation that knew about shortages , hunger and the value of last week's bread.
Last week I turned up at home with a Bentley Arnage Red Label . After many weeks of painstaking research and testdrives across the country I finally purchased a car that I think is an absolute beauty, inside and out.
Ah , here we go again . If you price it to high demand will drop and they'll tell us "we told you there is no appetite in the investing community" . Price it to be attractive and it's being given away.
Why can politicians never say "well done " to their oponents ?
This blog is being written at 1.15am because I am waiting up to collect my mother from the airport on a very delayed flight . Last time on this flight we got home at 6am ! This time the airport indicates a 2.25am arrival but Easyjet states it landed at 1.05am .
