Quote Friday #7

As you may be aware (hopefully by now!), I’m a SeaChange fan. The regularity with which lines and scenes from SeaChange enter my head, given it finished in 2000, is possibly cause for psychological intervention. Regardless, they do, and this week’s Quote Friday quote is from SeaChange Series 1 Episode 12 – Perchance to Dream. In the episode, Kevin, the local caravan park owner, and his son Trevor, are preparing to set sail. Kevin, who is a little dim but...

Quote Friday #2

Our second Friday Quote is from Ronald Reagan, and comes recommended by my Dad: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit” Think about it.
