Did the economy collapse again? Everyone is saying there's no more Jobs.
The media has been full of adulation for this man Jobs. I find myself a bit underwhelmed. He may have been bright, inventive and very clever at getting his creations sold worldwide, but was he that important? Did people see his 'Mac' and 'iPod' as earth changing, or did his fans see him as the good one and Bill Gates as the bad perhaps? Gates certainly has not made friends by his attitudes and behaviour, but was Jobs any better? Gates at least is known to have given away masses of money, Jobs appears to have kept his £8 billion. This man has been almost worshipped in the media, several articles in all papers and histories of his life, his work and so on and on. He died from a horrible disease, and that is terrible, his active m,ind created some interesting machines (which I have never used) but does the hero worship not reveal the empty part of us that needs a God to look up to? Clever he may be, but surely the coverage is overblown?
This is the 'Swan' tavern. You can tell that by the name 'Swan' written on the front. I had a look through the web but in spite of this pub standing here since at least 1560, and some similar creation probably dates back for a thousand or two years before this, I could find no relevant information regarding this pubs history, except a list of names of landlords for some years back. How sad I thought. Mind you it is some years since swans were found around here, ugly ducklings yes, swans no!
