    Happy New Year 2021

    I went to bed at 10pm last night, thinking back 21 years. I spent New Years eve on a Scout campsite, well away from anything electronic.

    The world had spent years worrying whether we would wake to stories of planes dropping out of the sky, lifts stuck between floors, cars and other vehicles cutting out and refusing to start. At work, everything ordered in had been tested and was certified as Y2K compliant, including that pack of paper and those pencils.

    21 years later we are still concentrating our efforts on testing.

    Lets hope that the positive outcome from 2000, which was brought about by everyone throwing bundles of money at a "bug", can be replicated through the vaccines 21 years on.

    Happy New Year folks.

    Happy New Year all. Whether we've argued, agreed, or a bit of both in 2020, I hope 2021 is better for all, sees an end to the restrictions on our lives and a return to fact to face scouting and camping.
