Every why has a wherefore…

Saturday night found us on the shores of Lake Windermere in the Lake District, enjoying a picnic by moonlight at Storrs Hall.

It was fantastic. I’m not a big fan of the theatre, and had to be persuaded that I was going to enjoy myself – ‘you WILL enjoy this Eli’ – but this was great. The Globe Theatre put on Comedy of Errors, and we sat on the lawn of the hotel,  on deck chairs, quaffing champagne, watching the chaos unfold. And it didn’t rain!


It was really good to be away for the weekend. This year is staycation time at Casa Lederwerg, which sounds good in principal, but has been hopeless in practice, as the great British public attempts to holiday in the great British weather.

Back to Monday morning now and work mode – the last trip to Indonesia is paying dividends, three more orders are in the pipeline – USSD solutions are really taking off there, and we have been inundated with requests for quotes.

Mobiles are currently being shipped to Africa, and I have several new clients in East and Central Africa interested in our products, so a trip over there will be on the cards very soon.

ALL rewards come from doing, not from knowing

“Be stirring as the time, be fire with fire, threaten the threatener,
and outface the brow of bragging horror; so shall inferior eyes,
that borrow their behaviours from the great, grow great by your
example and put on the dauntless spirit of resolution.” – William Shakespeare

Arrived in Jo’burg, and am just trying to breathe in the ‘dauntless spirit of resolution’ before I am collected for my first meeting:
