I take my hat off to Alex. I wish I'd had the courage to change direction years ago. Chase the dream.

Elizabeth Weaver
Great stuff ! It's wonderful to hear that you have actually done something about working towards your dream. I have loads of admiration for you. I too was brought up with and still live with chickens, dogs and horses so I know a little about the hard work, but also the rewards. Very best of luck ! Elizabeth, North Gloucestershire xx

Harry Hopkins
In a minute & a half Alex spoke what many think - that nobody can live with entire satisfaction in the enclosed world of data.
