  1. Hi Chris,
    I suppose it might seem a bit odd having an oldie like me following your blog!!!lol In my defence I'm interested in youth culture, I've got two young adult boys and feel young people get ( and always have)a hard time in society. My husband works with youth learning services in the community. He works mainly in diversion therapy, educating kids as to alternatives to crime, drugs and alcohol. He has recently started a motorbike project which incorporates skills of team work , safety, learning transferable skills etc with a the local college.
    Oh, and I've always been rubbish at public speaking!
    And I'm a big fan of Jimmy Carr.

    Take care
