Tom Wilson was right…

Each morning at six o’clock a nasty sound tells me to get up and get ready for work.

After my usual morning rituals in the bathroom, having my first cigarette (I know, I know ..it is bad for your health); I head out to the bus stop to get to my work.

When you write a blog post, focus on helping to solve the problems of your readers. They’re counting on you.
