The Horse is back!

After a summer break, the Horse's Mouth is back!

Much day to day writing and activity has moved from blogs to the likes of Facebook and Twitter, and that applies to me just as much as it applies to everyone else - rather than continue on with a lonely furrow here, that people need to subscribe or feed into, much of what I've been writing has been via linked and combined sources.

That, however, isn't the total story - there remains a need to update and feed Well House Consultants training materials and thoughts and examples into our resource channels, and have those channels updated and fed and easily referenced way into the future. Open Source programming is a bit like the eye of a storm - as technology marches on, programming techniques and the need to learn them change quite slowly, and a transient place for filing stories, such as Twitter or Facebook, isn't idea.

The summer has been busy - Well House Manor full every weekend, and often during the week too (but we do still have a room available as I write for next weekend). A protracted staff absence there put pressure on time too. A foster dog - Bobby - joined us for just over a month, melted our hearts but brought such intense jealousy from Billy that he's now moved on (for both their safety) amongst a flood of tears and, truth be known, we've now got our house back from having to puppy-proof, and our time back from double-walkies. It's also been an intense summer on the public transport side, with a need (or at least a moral obligation) to personally help promote the services that we've intensely lobbied for via the TransWilts Community Rail Partnership and over a wider area through the Great Western Coffee Shop, and to ensure that stage 4 of the original "Save the Train" agenda - "AND RETAIN' the service, which we always knew would be the hardest - happens. Actually, it's rather more than that since we're not looking at stable state - the new service has worked so well that we're working out what to help it grow into!

So "The Horse's Mouth" blog faded ... but I'm restarting it this morning, and will be initially an update message board so that I can add up to date links and resources that will get fed into our other pages. I' taking the opportunity to apply a fresh coat of paint (and service the engine, clean the carpets and replace worn out components with ones of a modern design) on our courses, to have a new fleet fit for 2015, and a fleet which has a consistency that's perhaps been lacking in the past due to the various ways our courses have grown up. More about that story anon ... please watch this space ... current courses are listed here and that course index will be updated though this week.
