Lessons from "Squirrel Hunting"

  1. 12th March 2022
  2. Barry Walker

As a young teenager, there was nothing I found more enjoyable than being in the great outdoors, whether it was playing organized sports or fishing with my grandparents.

  2. Rod King (1949-2019)

“If it ain't broke, don’t fix it,” goes the old saying. It seems that some people have got to change things for the sake of change.

Somehow they believe that if something is new, it must be better, which of course is not always the case. Progress is...

In science fiction, cloaking devices make spaceships invisible. Scientists work with stealth technology to try to make things seem invisible, or as close as possible. But, what about the...
