Life goes by so quickly, next year I will be a young 50 year old, I can’t actually believe this and you know what, I’m finding it hard to accept. I’ve been thinking a lot about the word ‘legacy’. A legacy is something you leave behind and for the most part in Western society it’s […]
The nerd-em-up story moves at breakneck speed and the climactic showdown is the stuff of legend, liable to discussed for years to come.
