Weekly Digest

Not much happened last week. More time at the golf centre for Ethan and I was finishing off some client work last week as I am enjoying a week off this week. There'll be more in next week's digest. As I publish this we're getting ready for storm Ophelia hitting the west of Scotland. By the time it gets here, it will have a slightly fizzled out a bit but will still hit us with a fair amount of wind.

Weekly Digest

This is the first in an ongoing series of weekly posts that I am going to do. With Micro.blog taking over for shorter posts, I still want to write longer posts here. Seems fitting that I write a weekly update including what’s been happening and what I’ve found interesting on the web. Enjoy!

In a week that has been dominated by another mass shooting in the US, once again, people are raising questions about gun control laws and civil rights when it comes to bearing fire arms. I believe a step in the right direction is more restrictions on gun ownership and how many guns a single person can own, but that’s just my 2 cents.

With daylight becoming scarce now, it's time to get Ethan back to the driving range and the golf centre for some indoor practice. It doesn't compare to being out on the course, but it's the next best thing. He spent some time on short game this week in preparation for the Lexwell Trophy, a team stabelford event which is held at Elderslie Golf Club every year. Unfortnately the Paisley team couldn't get the points needed for another win, but I was glad to see Ethan hitting the ball well throughout his round. Well done to the Kilmacolm boys who look set to have a great team for this in the next few years.

Star Trek Discovery has been entertaining and with episode 3 now aired, I think I’m in this for the long haul. I especially liked the end of episode 3 though. A sense of darkness about the upcoming episodes perhaps? From what I’ve watched, Star Trek television shows have never veered too much on darker stories. I like where Discovery is going with this though.

I'm back to writing content for the DigitalBothy blog. The importance of such content for the blog might not seem like much now, but in the long term I want to gather enough interested people and organisations to sign up for my Bothybytes newsletter which will accompany the blog and be launched in November.
