Maintaining e-cred is hard work

Jings, crivens and help ma boab! Is that really more than a year since my last blog?

It’s amazing how much time it takes to maintain your e-cred in these new-fangled technological times – and I’ve not even bothered with the Facebook’s, Linkedin’s and Twitter’s of this crazy interactive world yet.

For the past year I’ve been tremendously busy uprooting my family, moving to Portsmouth, working with golf marketing company The Azalea Group and news editing golf magazine Fairway to Green.

It would be mostly true to say that I’ve been too busy to keep this blog up but the whole truth and nothing but the truth would also include the fact that sometimes I forgot and other times I just couldn’t be arsed.

Sadly my time at Azalea and Fairway to Green has come to an end but throughout the past year I have had the privilege to work with and meet some amazing people (and some not so), learn more about the golf industry and generally indulge my passion for the game of golf.

I’ll probably post in more detail at a later date about my experiences at Azalea and Fairway to Green.

However, what all this means – other than the fact that I’m looking for a job (note to all prospective employers and commissioning editors) – is that I can resurrect this blog and hopefully this time keep it going even when I do find a new job.

Here’s to pastures new……..

Hey There Delilah Spoof ( Hey Harry Potter )

 This You Tube clip is completely random and in no way sports related but I laughed heartily when I watched it. I hope you will too.

Loved the bit about the invisibility cloak.

For anyone who hasn’t heard the original Hey there Delilah, it is by the Plain White T’s. Just bought their album and it is also well worth a listen.

Craig joins the Hurly Burley of the Scotland race


Far be it for me to pick up on other websites’ mistakes as this blog will no doubt be littered with typos and factual inaccuracies very soon, but I just couldn’t let this one slip by.

Setanta Sports are reporting that Southampton boss Craig Burley is in talks with the SFA over the Scotland post – here.

Of course they meant Craig’s uncle, George, who is the current Southampton gaffer and one of the favourites for the Scotland job. However, as former Celtic, Chelsea and Scotland star Craig is a regular pundit on Setanta, perhaps they know something the rest of us don’t.

Maybe Craig wouldn’t be such a bad appointment – after all, which Scotland player wouldn’t be spurred into action after a half-time rollicking from this toothless terror.
