I had a friend growing up, who told me he was born in the exact ward and the exact bed in a Bradford maternity hospital as the runner up of the 1st season of ITV’s talent show ‘Pop Idol’ - Gareth Gates. Just imagine that, carrying the weight of that information around with you for your whole life.

One of the most valuable aspects of life is to be aspirational and direct, like Icarus. Now there was a man whose head was screwed on proper. He knew what he wanted (the sun) and he bloody well went and got it, I think. If you really want to be a better, mostly whole person, take my hand and lend me your ear or ears and lobes and ear drum. If you think really hard about being rich you will be, thoughts and the psyche are like that, it’s so easy. You all remember what Freud said about wanting to sleep with our mothers; well this applies here, except with money.

So I guess that’s about it for today, I hope you had a great experience, I know I certainly did.
