Another bonus of my day out yesterday was being able to listen to Father Brian D’Arcy on Chris Evans’ radio show on BBCR2 in the morning in the little section towards the end called Pause for Thought. As I read somebody else say in the paper over the last few days, never mind two minutes silence on Remembrance Day, 11th November, how about a moment of silence every day?

Today’s Entrepreneur: Ceri Wheeldon FabAfterFifty.com

Yesterday’s guest on my radio show was Ceri Wheeldon, the fast and fabulous creator of FabAfterFifty, champion for women after fifty years of age. Ceri has been self-employed for twenty years already, initially in partnership at the sharp end in headhunting in the Nineties, dealing mainly with men.   Now she’s loving meeting lots of wonderful women.   It sounds to me very much as though Ceri’s skill is with people, she sounds so enthusiastic about everything and everyone.
