I've been blogging on the internet since around 2005. First using hand-coded sites, blogging platforms and then using CMS such as Nucleus, Wordpress and Joomla.

Boris and the Burkha

Boris and the Burkha

In amongst all of the kerfuffle with Boris Johnson's latest remarks about the burkha making Muslim women look like letterboxes it's good to see that he doesn't actually support a ban like Denmark has just introduced.

Sulaimani Tea

I've been reading a series of books recently by Jason Goodwin which are known as Yashim the Detective series. Worth reading by the way, especially if you have an interest in the Ottoman empire and Constantinople.

My Strength and My Fortress

My Strength and My Fortress

Immersed in worship one morning at our Sunday service I was struck by a couple of phrases in the song we were singing. It was by Hillsong and called My Story. The first phrase was "God will always be my strength" and the second was "To know You God is why I live".

Benedict and Suffering

I can't say I'm a great fan of the Catholic Church's current Pope but I do have a fond spot for Benedict XVI.
