This has been awhile coming but couldn't actually get myself up to pen it, until now.

After more than two years running this blog, it's time to call it a day! Writing about topical issues, especially ethical ones can become pretty damn depressing (especially on limited sleep) and I think it's time I read a few more fiction books, watched a bit more sport (is that possible?) and spent more time chasing the kids around the house rather than dedicating hour after hour to a 7.9x5.3 inch screen. 

That being said, I've had an absolute blast writing this blog and have met some really good people due to it. I've also learnt a hell of a lot and discovered a real passion for staying abreast news and challenging the status quo on topical, difficult, argument provoking issues. 

I'm going to leave the page up for anyone who might happen to stumble across anything I've written. Unsure as to whether I'll keep posting sound bite pieces from the Facebook and Twitter pages. 

To all those who have supported this page and helped me learn how to put thoughts on to paper, thank you. Especially Maree McMenamin in the early stages and Monica Doumit in the latter stages. Also my sister Maddy who always provided words of wisdom and logic. And finally to my chief editor (only editor in truth) my super wife, Suz. Out of the 82 pieces I have written on this site, I'm guessing all but three were posted after Suz's patient editing. During each post I'd read her pretty much every paragraph as soon as I had written it and then the entire post in total at least a couple of times once it was done! She never pushed me away or got annoyed and always listened and provided advice from the perspective of a reader. Thank you. 

Who knows what the future holds, I still have an ambition to write. On what and in what capacity, who knows. 

Hope you've enjoyed the blog and don't be afraid to voice your views! It's what makes our society interesting. 

All the best.
