  • Useful Ways To Spend £6700

    I really enjoyed the Kings Speech and feel that it fully deserved to win an Oscar for Colin Firth.  Had I been sitting on the panel it would have also won Best Supporting Actor for Geoffrey Rush but I am far from being a film buff, so have to confess...
  • Over-Engineered, Over-Sold And Over-Priced

    It is always a pleasure to talk to our customers. Most are very supportive of what we are trying to achieve and very grateful for the huge differences in our prices versus the high street. Most are very relieved to discover that the questions and issues that they have, are...
  • Surfing In The 50's

    This week I have been working on a new catalogue which is designed to provide a printed version of our website for use by those without internet connection or ‘surfing’ experience. We receive many requests for such an item as there are a number of people who have friends or...
  • Stars Need Clear Labelling

    With Bethan working in London, during the week it is just Hobbes and I at home. While Hobbes is great company on his morning walk he does have limitations during the evening when all he tends to do is stretch out in front of the fire. His evening contribution tends...
  • Your waiting room, your choice?

    Last Friday we took Hobbes, Bethan’s Springer spaniel of high breeding but low behaviour, back to the specialist vet centre for what we prayed was his final visit. He had long ago consumed his insurance threshold with the same ease that he seemed to destroy his cruciate ligament. His extremely...
  • Hearing The Birds

    I love the end of February in the northern hemisphere. I don’t feel quite so like a mole anymore - there’s at least a hint more light when I leave the house in the mornings and the office in the evenings. This particular last week of winter I’ve also suddenly...
  • An Angry Silence

    I travelled to the office today in the ‘Quiet zone’ of Southwest trains service to Portsmouth Harbour. An interesting concept really; a section of the train where relative peace and tranquillity abound and scornful passengers ‘tut’ or stare at anyone daring to use a form of electronic entertainment or communication...
  • All In The Dark

    The end of the month of January means different things to different people. For me, it is the demise of the first “dark month”, dark months being January and February, and being the longer of the two, a positive signal that we are over halfway through the misery. I do...
  • Dispensing With Tradition

    HD 430 Digital Hearing Aid I had two interesting conversations with customers in the last few days which started me thinking about the variety of consultation approaches adopted by private hearing aid dispensers in the UK. Whilst there can be no doubt that there are some excellent dispensers providing good...
  • Trying Never Tasted So Good

    Yesterday, I found myself staring out of the train with my nose pressed to the window like a small child. I was enjoying the countryside whistling by and seeing the green fields give way to the urban sprawl on the way up to Waterloo. The novelty was not in the...
