2020 A strnge year

 Here we stand in the closing days of 2020 and a new year on the horizon.

How was it for you?

The taxi industry,the tourist trade and the pub business were utterly devastated as well as other industries.There is a field in England where hundreds of Black cabs are parked up, many of them were rented out and when the work dried up the drivers gave the cars back. Those cars were costing in the region of  £60,000 and they seemed like a gold standard investment, all the owners had to do was collect the rent every week.

Alas now there is no work

My taxi has been off the road since February,  I changed the insurance to social and domestic and sat back.

I got a strange call from the carriage office to say that I had to go back to work now, that they needed the entire fleet  back at work. 

When I said I now had my phone set to record and I wanted him to identify himself and repeat what he had just said he hung up.

Of course I took time off to write the book 

"The steering wheel university"

 The author drove a million miles and met thousands of people and they all educated him.

Buy it on Amazon and support my lifestyle.

If you want to give writing a book a go yourself, type it up on Microsoft word, then go to Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) and follow the link.Transfer it chapter after chapter.

One thing you need to know is that there is no spell checker on the Kindle app, so that explains my 4 spelling mistakes.

A big word of thanks to the guy who designed the cover, he lives in the Philippians and did it for me in 3 days.

Good luck to you there is at least one good book in every taxi driver.

We do not know what the future holds, the past  is only there to remind us of what happened, to caution us perhaps.

One thing for sure is that 2021 is a new beginning.

Mistakes in the past are long gone.

The future awaits you.

Rise up to meet the challenges of the future.

One very wise man told me that mistakes are only there to educate you.

Go in Peace and may your God go with you.
