The Stace

Hi, I’m Mike Stacey and I’m just keeping an eye on things as I approach the sunset of my life. Well certainly closer to the sunset than the sunrise at least 😉

This site contains a mixture of my scribblings, podcasts and radio shows.

I suggest you use the “Blog“, “Podcast“, “Quotations” or “Radio” menu items if you want to segment what is displayed. Under “Blog” you can also just choose one of the categories to further limit what is displayed. Look for the “Older Posts” at the bottom of the page to show the next page of posts.

If you would like to find out a little more about me, please check out my  “About” page.

I thought about it as we travelled through the intersection and then blurted out “I’m quite looking forward to it really”, a response that nearly caused my wife to run off the road.

Test or Not

News has come through of yet another drug related death at a music festival. What a dichotomy, a festival of youthful enthusiasm and enjoyment of music marred by a death from a drug presumably taken to heighten the enjoyment and experience of the occasion. What a waste.
