2018: Here we come!

Top Cat Guide to Life

2017 was a difficult year for me, by far the worst of my 17 years at NPL.

But after a break in which I have managed to breathe, become 58 years old, spend time with my family, and read some books, I have resolved to try to focus on the positive.

At first I thought I would follow advice from the  ‘indisputable leader of the gang’, Mr. Top Cat, from New York City, who has published his ‘Guide to Life‘.

But in fact after reading Mr. Cat’s advice, I can inform you that it is not so much feline, as asinine.

However, his positivity and self-assuredness are enviable, if somewhat (respectively) mysterious and misplaced.

My plan is to reflect on the positive – of which there is plenty – while not ignoring the negative. It’s a tough balance, but nobody said life would be easy.

In any case, if you are reading this, I wish you all the best for the remaining 98.9% of 2018.

    Well Michael, you just need to follow the advice of Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTMWNWrE3Uc :

    Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
    What did they do
    Just when everything looked so dark
    Man, they said we better, accentuate the positive
    Eliminate the negative
    Latch on to the affirmative
    Don’t mess with Mister In-Between

    – Happy New Year.
