I'm notorious in the workshop for never watching telly to the point that if they want to talk about me when I'm there they do it in film references but even I know who Johnny-5 is!
I'm only a plumber from Cannock...

Is it having kids that keeps an oldie in touch with these things? (I don't, and don't regret it - yet.)

Short Circuit was 1986 - I was 19 years old! Didn't have my first procreation event until I was 38.

I'd never heard of Short Circuit before today.

As I have been suspecting for some time, I'm just not getting out enough! :lol:

If you've not been out since 1986 you may as well stay in now...

If the Barra project is over, it's a golden opportunity missed that will not re-present itself, and that project will languish now at the FAAM for want of scarce resources.

With any spare capacity this creates, don't go into partnership with anyone. It only ends in tears and recriminations.

Echoes advice I was given many years ago by a seasoned businessman "a Partnership is not a good ship in which to set sail"

When you come to a fork in the road, take it

I'm not negative by nature - I'm really not - but it's a bit like a marriage: it can work, and sometimes does. But it's the old difficulty of starting off thinking you both want the same thing, and then finding out down the line that you don't. In business terms, it's also the difficulty of one party getting greedy, or thinking it can have dominion over the other, and then it all ends up bloody horrible.

I bet there's the perfect project out there, that was just waiting for the Barra to fall through.
