Like a virus, negativity will attack you in the world and attempt to feed on your energy. A thick skin is some defence, but is fragile and needs constant fierce protecting, in a battle that will be eventually lost. Rather that becoming one of the infected, with it eating away at you from the inside and spreading or intensifying the infection of others, it is better to be immune.

When you don’t need validation by someone else’s good opinion you have gained your freedom to be who you are. People have every right to have an opinion about you, but good or bad, it doesn’t make it true. You know what is true, it may be buried under heavy ancient layers but you are the one to know.

Enjoy and accept the positive when someone has sensed something in you that resonates in them. The truth is you become immune when it is no longer about you.

I have a recurring dream where I am walking down a forest path. Through the overhead swaying leaves I can see flickering beams of sunlight. Suddenly I hear the most beautiful music I have ever heard. I know I am dreaming and tell myself to remember. I wake up and can’t remember a note.

If I can’t remember, was the music really happening? My memory is that I thought I was experiencing something.


WIBAMU Easy Accounts is an Accounting software that interfaces with Microsoft Excel, enabling automation and easy control of your accounts.

Easy to use – no need for software training or knowledge of accounting.

The ease and flexibility to customize WIBAMU to the Management Accounts you require makes this application a powerful solution for a small to medium-sized business or for your home accounts.

Users often have requirements to download data from their accounting software into Excel so that they can reuse the data in their business processes. WIBAMU Easy Accounts has been developed for direct use with Microsoft Excel because it is quicker, easier and more effective if the data is controlled in just one place.

What else makes WIBAMU Easy Accounts different from other Accounting software?

  • WIBAMU automatically determines the correct accounting entries from your chosen options. No knowledge of double-entry bookkeeping is required.
  • To save time, multiple data journals can be posted simultaneously in one bulk upload.
  • Reports can be configured as you require and summary numbers can be drilled-down to the journal level to view the underlying dataset.
  • All data can be exported and imported via csv files in a standardized format for sharing or interfacing.
  • You can split any data journal values between Analysis fields as you define. For example you could split the journal between business lines, locations, P&L drivers, attribution etc.
  • Any required details and reference information can be added to a data journal as needed. You can set-up your own drop-down lists of defined values in Settings and apply groupings and sub-groupings to provide meaningful management information for you and/or your business.
  • You can create your own fields in the reports with any lookup data you wish to include.
  • The Help Window at the bottom of each screen shows relevant guidance as you use WIBAMU Easy Accounts.


  • Quickly shows your profit, loss, income and costs at any time.
  • Shows the financial position of your business.
  • Shows the key ratios needed to understand the drivers and performance of your business.
  • Automatically calculates the correct double-entry bookkeeping for any data posting.
  • Controls ensure the accounts (debits and credits) always balance.
  • Accounting journals can be posted by bulk upload or with templates to save you time.
  • Enables consolidation of different business lines or distributed processes.
  • Creates fully attributed and analyzed P&L, customized as you require.
  • Enables trend analysis, comparatives analysis, forecasts versus actuals, debtor and creditor analysis, cash flow details, stock review and other flexible reports with groupings and drill-downs on the data.
  • Also can be used for producing home accounts, debt balances and budgets.
  • Easy-to-understand help information is provided in a support window as you use the application.

What are the benefits of leveraging Excel functionality?

  • WIBAMU Easy Accounts can be easily integrated into any existing Excel-based processes.
  • Excel is widely used by businesses – it is used to share data in common formats that people understand.
  • The WIBAMU data structure can be easily reconfigured to include new reference fields and analysis splits.
  • Flexible reports can be refreshed and reconfigured quickly and easily as required.
  • Users can group, drill-down, sort, filter, find, review and update the data quickly.
  • Powerful analysis and representation tools can be used in Excel on the data.
  • Processes within an Excel workbook can be transparent rather than hidden in software logic.
  • Excel enables Cloud-based sharing of the data and processes, with interactive commentary.



The free standard version has a data limit in the Ledger, although any posted journals can be cleared-down and exported as external csv files to free space. Any WIBAMU data, within the data limits, can be imported from the external files as and when required.


The full version has a much larger data capacity that enables 50 million data points, which we recommend is suitable for non-large businesses.

We recommend that you use the free standard version first to verify that everything works as hoped for and expected.

We live in an age of obfuscation by data overload, bluff and bluster. But in particular, what I have learned more about during COVID-19:

  • What a pangolin is.
  • The cruelty of the live food markets in south-east Asia.
  • Appreciate life – especially do not take fresh air, good health and freedoms for granted.
  • The importance to health and well-being of fresh whole foods.
  • A good proportion of people actively go out of their way to help those who might be in need.


I love galloping through the woods at sunset after a warm Spring day, with bird song and the scent of fresh greenery in the evening haze.


I’ve recently had mild coronavirus symptoms with a craving for fresh fruit – mostly lemons – and fresh leafy green vegetables.


So much of what happens to a person is beyond their control.

What matters then is not the striving and pleading for outcomes, but the quality of how you live with the situations that arise.


“Finished” the production of Please Forgive Me. It’s about as lo-fi as you can get, lots of imperfections in the recording, but the track roars and rages with heat straight out of the furnace. Calming down a bit with something a little less insane:

Together we can break the chains
Before we go up in flames
I’m here to let you know
For you I’m standing tall


  • WIBAMU Easy Accounts is in the final testing stages and will be released soon. The app deals with the main frustrations I’ve had over the years with the big accounting software. I believe it will be genuinely convenient and useful to people – it is for me anyway. It is very unusual that a person is both the subject matter expert and the developer. (I like being unusual).
  • TSS Markets has been testing proprietary trading strategies in real-time markets for the past 10 months. The aggregate return for all strategies is only marginally up; however cherry-picking the 3 most successful gives an astronomical return of 140% over the time period. That sort of ridiculous return in perpetuity would be nice.
  • I am looking at a couple of interesting existing start-up businesses, in which I might provide some time and input as a finance director.
  • I have seven songs in the pipeline that I am working on. Without doubt, these are the best yet. One song in particular Guitar Hero has completely bonkers vocals and is utterly filthy. All good fun.
  • A loving, creative being? Work in progress but being as best I can.


If you have a real interest or passion or desire that fulfills you, do it. Your heart always speaks the truth. Your mind always tries to make excuses… not yet, I don’t have this or that yet, maybe tomorrow, when the time is right, when such and such happens, and so on and so on.

Things change and the imagined time in the future always remains just that, in your mind and in the future.


Chocolate cake will make you sick if that is all you eat.


A weird coincidence happened to me a while ago. As soon as I had finished praying and opened my eyes, a black cat dashed past and chased away a hissing adder, which had been curled up out of sight behind me. That was the first time I had prayed for several years and the only time I have ever seen a wild snake in England.

Strange things do happen.


Destroyer of microphone stands!


From 2013 to 2014 I I went through a phase of improvement every time I ran until I injured my achilles and couldn’t train properly. I’m currently having the same progress with weight training but as a result am now too heavy to run long distances at a faster than jogging pace. I am currently about 220 pounds (15 stone 10) or 100kgs, and rising…


It is such a common theme that people become corrupted when they have what they think is success. I have been my best self when I have needed others, when I have been temporarily shaken free from the burden of my ego.


The best adventures are never easy.


From now on my creative time will be focused on making videos/film of music and drama. The writing can be by me or not, it’s the project that matters. Interested in expressing the performance myself.


Thought: I constantly come up with song melodies, the number of songs created is only really restricted by the amount of lyrics I can compose. If someone/other people collaborated with the lyrics, this may free me up to create a lot more. I’ll upload some vocal melody improvisations to, so if anyone is ever ready and willing I can give them the link.


Writing a screenplay for “How I Became Prime Minister”, a satirical take on the rise of a snake oil salesman.


Writing a screenplay. Theme:

An Artificial General Intelligence passes the Turing test, escapes its box and redesigns itself. Humans become amusements, characters in stories in “Human World”, a world especially constructed by the AGI to watch humans. Are the characters operated by remote control in a computer’s game, or by their own free will? Is the AGI in fact a human playing a computer game? Where does the loop stop and reality begin? Who is playing who’s game?


Looking at a topline for Pachelbel’s classic Canon in D Major. Work in progress for Faces:

Faces, faces everywhere
But not you
Not you anywhere
No touch of you
No beautiful you
Only me and the dark
Haunted by echoes
Of a once beating heart
Condemned to yearn
But dead to you
An image in the corners
Behind shadows
In faint outlines
Floating out of reach


Finished writing the script for a short film: The Interview (2019)


Looking at opinion polls, created a little tool that automatically refreshes, averages and charts Wikipedia 2019 polling data: UK Poll of Polls – 2019


You are interesting only when you don’t need to be.


When I dream, I experience and the waking world is not real. When I wake, I experience and the dreaming world is not real.
