And so it begins…

Welcome to my toe-dip into blogification. I’ve called this site Monetise This in homage
to those who insist in buggerising the English language with their flatulent, fraudulent corporate-speak – those drillers-down, deep-divers, goers-forward, whose only purpose is to hide the fact that they’re saying absolutely-bloody-nothing – at least nothing I want to listen to. Nor you, I hope, gentle reader. It’s also called Monetise This because I, like every other misguided late-adopter to this crazy little thing called social media, eventually want to make some money out of it. Cynical? Mais, oui!
I suppose I could also have called it Plan B
Now that’s out of the way, let’s drill right down, folks. This blog is for people like me, who’ve reached a time in their lives when they know who they are and what they want, and who are often rudely awakened by how wrong they are on both counts. It’s for people who like food and eating and cooking, but refuse to use ‘foodie’ and ‘passionate’ in the same sentence (and would rather not use the word ‘foodie’ at all).
And it’s for anyone who’s travelled well, travelled badly or merely travelled in the windmills of their mind.
I’ll be posting my blatherings on whatever drifts across my peripheral vision on a reasonably regular basis, and hope that it may afford someone a little amusement, inspiration or, if it comes to that, some minor irritation. If that person happens to be you, then I hope you contact me for a chat – unless you’re an irritated axe murderer.
