His quirky erudition showed too in his choice of subject, writing about such things as escalators, weeds, bicycles, bridges and hearts. link

Having a Plan: Your Marketing Maestro

This week I have thought hard about where to start and well, the beginning seemed the logical option. Having a plan.

Sunken bridge

Sunken bridge

A series of moats and fortresses were built over the West Brabant Water Line region of the Netherlands during the 17th century to give protection from invasion by France and Spain. Fort de Roovere was surrounded with a shallow moat that was too deep to march across, and too shallow for boats. In turn the earthen fort had remained protected – until now!
