Shopping Securely Online
Shopping online is becoming more the “norm” these days than the novelty it was a few years ago. Today many people think nothing of spending money online, and thinking nothing can possibly be a shopper’s folly.
Shopping online is generally safe and secure, but it is as well to remember that a financial transaction is as important to keep safe online, as handling cash in a physical shopping environment.
Keeping your financial details safe online can be just as simple as remembering a few Continue reading Stay Safe Shopping Online
Is An Apprenticeship Worthwhile?
Students have been somewhat brainwashed during the past 20 years into believing that University and a degree is the only path to take if they want to maximise their earnings, but, there are flaws in that thinking process that an apprenticeship can fill quite successfully.

In 1896, a driver from Faversham in Kent, one Walter Arnold, unwittingly, and probably unwillingly, entered the record books as the first driver of a motor vehicle to be stopped and fined by the police for exceeding speed limits.
