Good afternoon/evening/morning, it's Paul here.

What a beautiful surge in temperature this week, which I have enjoyed very much, and hope you have too!

Hopefully I shall be able to report back to you shortly on a private matter, which has caused me immense anxiety. It concerns a guarantee I gave (foolishly) to a friend's pubs. I never imagined that the PG would actually kick in. It has.  Hopefully it should get sorted out at some point.

Here in Bournemouth there was a terrible accident, some time ago, when a Red Arrows pilot tragically lost his life, in a display crash. Local children were invited to design a memorial. A local artist then took it further.

Anyway, I think we have a busy day on the horizon - it's results from Gear4Music (in which I have a long position) - a costly growth stock, which institutions seem to want to buy.

Also, I think results from Zytronic (LON:ZYT) are out in the morning.

I'll be taking my time to amble through things. Graham has got a heavy cold, so you'll have to put up with me for the rest of the week! I'll do my best, we'll see what happens lol.



Book recommendation

I start lots of books, but rarely finish them. This is why I rarely trouble you with book recommendations.

Occasionally, maybe once per year, I'm gripped - and enjoy a book so much, that I don't want to put it down.
