Three life changing comments

Has your life been changed by a chance comment or apparently casual comment? Did you realise the possible consequences of the comment at the time?

"Can Lisa come along too"
By a friend asking if her chum Lisa could come along on a boat trip. Lisa and I are now married.

"Do you know of an Internet cafe in Melksham?"
By email, from a gentleman in South Africa. His daughter is now my daughter-in-law

"Sadly still not sold"
To Lisa and me in reply to a survey of local accommodation earlier this Autumn. Watch this space to learn more about the "Well House Manor" project under which we'll be providing accommodation for business visitors to Melksham (and our own trainees) from next summer.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
