John had his first work published in the 1960's and continues to be very active writing books, magazine articles, newsletters and blogs (including this one).
He has had over 50 printed books and more than 80 eBooks published; has been editor for four different magazines; and today owns and operates a business that runs distance education colleges and publishing businesses in both Australia and the UK.
This blog presents extracts from work he has written both alone, and in collaboration with his staff; both old and new; and musings about what is happening in his world today.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues its grip on the
world, many countries are encouraging people to stay in to avoid
catching the virus or self-isolate when they start to show symptoms.
However, this can have an effect on our mental health.
The UK Government recently announced that they are cutting
funding for over 5000 further education courses due to poor attendance
numbers. You could think that these courses are being cut because they
are niche courses, but they include courses such as hair dressing,
agriculture, horticulture, performing arts, cooking and horse care. In
the modern world, we still need the people who are able to grow our
crops and tend to our plants. We still need people who are knowledgeable
about animals and their care.
