Post Go Live Blues

The elation has gone
and the toll
of all those hours
of unpaid overtime
has come home
to roost

Why do this
I ask?
Because I love
is the reply
A passion for ones
the lonely hours
with results
So satisfying

Amazon Buyers be aware of this Scam

It hurts!! I have been scammed and lost £346 through a scammer operating through the Amazon.co.uk site.

If you see this guy selling anything don't buy it!!

The moment money transer is mentioned, leave well alone.

The email addresses that I have corresponded though are:

Alexander Groom (oscar-dehn@hotmail.com)

Why would any trustworty retailer have hotmail & gmail addresses? They are coming across as legit UK based companies with corresponding company websites.

Again - leave well well alone - pure scammers.

What really annoys me is that Amazon was warned about this scammer in early December according to a forum on their site and still he appears. I got scammed but they should have closed this guy out in early December.

So if it can happen to an old hand like me it can happen to anyone.

the Snow 2009

In 2008 I loved the snow
So white
Silently drifting
Down to
Clothe the mediocrity
And grayness
Of the sad landscape

In 2009
I hate the snow
The central heating
Is on the blink
The hot water is off
And it's as cold
As a polar bears bum

Amidst the Gloom

Amidst the gloom
I found my books
and they led
me to a place
beyond the Clouds
of the ennui
of everyday life.

The Bus Stop

Standing at the Bus Stop
On a Cold Winter's morning
Grey sky streaked with
Post apocalyptic pink

Branches of the trees
Wind like filigrees of
twined skeletons
bare and stark
In the Newcastle

Winter Contemplation

Winter creeps in slowly
turning the sky grey
but my spirit
remaains undaunted
every season rewards
the watchful
business person

Snow rakes
hot mead
tropical holidays
and the list goes on
and on

Rain in the Early Morning

Walking home in the rain
Father and daughter
Four a.m.
Umbrellas unfurled
Saying who
Would have
thought we would
Be doing this

I will remember

Today is blah
Cold with a cold
and fedup
I muse
on Life
and you

and blahness
retreats before
your radiant

Be Prepared
To continue
In the face of

The ups and downs
are smoothened
by a plan
for the unexpected

At the End of the Day

At the end of the day
Go home and forget
Your work
its trials
and triumphs

Go home to the wife of
your youth
and enjoy
the company
and friends

Thank God
Its Friday
Its been
One of those weeks
from business Hell

But come
I'll be back
Ready to do battle
Solve the problems
Slay the Dragon
and win
the princess

Unrelenting stress
slowly building
to an
eruptive feeling
of morale sapping

Energy comes
from refreshing
in the

Be warned
no balance
More stress

The Flight Delay

In fair Newcastle toon
The fog was thick
and delayed
the flight 5 hours

When London we did reach
US Airways had gone home
address unknown

Five British Airways staff
knew five different answers to the same question
and all were wrong

A Hilton stay self funded
was required
companions 4 provided light relief

Next Day to Philly we did go
but alas our bags
had gone a journeying

Go on to Pittsburgh they said
where bags will find you at the Marriott
or not
as in my unlucky case

Five days later at 2am my bags arrived
and today it all starts the other way

Who said business travel is fun!!

New Year, New Opportunities

A New Year brings
Hopes of profit
and satified customers

An opportunity
to grow my team
To serve my clients
and feed my family

Business should
bring benefit
to the community
as well as to
