April 28, 2018

This is an apology to my ex wife Susan, Tom Davies, my Daughter Emma for going out without my mobile phone and  thinking that the Stockport County match was last week.

For the past 7 weeks I have been engaging with Google Garage on a start your own business course.

I have discussed with my employers Verastar that I work Saturday as a Senior ICT Consultant for Redcamel Systems at a rate of £1,000 per hour working out of Hitec Computers in Cheadle.

Verastar know this and have advised me that I must not use company equipment to do any Red Octopus of Red Camel  business. I agreed these terms with my senior manager on Friday.

My Senior Senior Manager knows that I work as a consultant and I agreed two years ago to deliver training on the presentation tool Prezi to my immediate manager Feya. I agreed terms that I could use Red Camel Infrastructure to deliver the training.

Prezi was delivered to Feya in many forms as part of my Digital Champion website http://protopage.com/digitalchampions.community as part of my community library website http://protopage.com/northendencommunitylibray  also through my community centre website http://protopage.com/bidefordcentre it was also communicated through my Community Guardian website http://protopage.com/communityguardian and my job finder site http://protopage.com workinglinks. To simplyfy communication I created protopage website http://protopage/verastar and ask if protopage could become a company standard for the delivery of training material – the answer is now no which was explained to me recently when I was asked to look at internal training. I will not convert these into links because I am too tired and I have been working all day for Red Octopus – I awoke at 6am this morning and started work and did not get home till 9:30 pm – it is now 22:11. For the record protopage is just the tool for a sharepoint front end and that for my own use I have created my own InfoNet that I  have on my desktop that renders sharepoint documents. So in some small way my IT Skills do come to use at Verastar. On Friday last I took a new PC that I had configured by Hitec into work to confirm that the Visual Studio would allow me to conduct my personal development MVC Training.  The It department said it is ok, It is now up to Richard Gilbert – Redcamel Founder to provide me with MVC Code samples. Richard has been my mentor since 1998 and has taught me all that I know. I can now build websites in minutes that have database functionality.  My next website will be for The Midland Hotel in Manchester – I have consulted the Midland Hotel management today and have agreed that it is acceptable for me to do so,  So watch out for http://protopage.com/midlandhotel. it is now 23:20 I am fed and washed and need to go and watch the football in Adam’s Room. watch out for the Midland I will have to do it next Saturday even though it will take 10 minutes – I have to do it under Red Octopus – I might slot it in Tomorrow Sunday and do a 8pm blog.  It is not my intention to work Sunday as it is now a day of rest and it is golf golf golf all day and relaxation to Manchester music. Whilst I am now committed to playing withington golf club I will stay at home tomorrow as I am too tired and have been off sick – I fell asleep on the tram I am so exhausted and ended up at Manchester Airport.

I will look at golf lessons by Steve Marr at Withington Golf club and flag my learning on http://thegolfhub.net and register my learning on my Medigolf Project on http://protopage.com/withingtongolf club.  I have been recommending to  WGC for 22 years at least that they should have an active responsive social networking site and in 2007 i registered the protopage website on there behalf.  Protopage was rejected by John and Bob – both chairman and friends of mine – but as a friend they would not give me a leg up in the IT Industry – John did find me a job at Communisis Broadprint where I was allowed to work 12 hours a day 7 day a week and it was the cause of my split with Sue – who was just brilliant during the condition of divorce in stating that it was my invovement at Withington Golf Club which caused the separation. Sue allowed me to retain my capital for my investment in a second home and agreed that I could run two mortgages – the Halifax were great and allowed me two run two houses on the basis of my earning with Communisys – At Communisis I was severely bullied by Nick Cosgrove but stayed with the company till I got wind that the Altrincham site was closing then I went to Arrow  Mailing where I set up my ICT Company BBComuniSYS in 2007 having worked with Microsoft as a Beta Tester. Happy days I started working for Dave Gosling at YMG Golf as an IT Strategist…. Enough said I am going to have to write a new CV tomorrow – That is going to take me the best part of the day as I will need to blog it at 8pm – That is what I call Synergy – Synergy is when you work for 1 company but bill yourself out to many compamies. Geoff Unwin taught me Synogy when I worked for him in 1998 a an Acting Principle Consultant for Hoskyns. In 1992/3 I worked for both Hoskyns and Peterborough Software and formed my first Limited Company Extraunit which did the Project Management and System build for royal Mail Parcel Force. That year I eaned a significant amount of money which I put in a war chest and I am still living off it.  Recently I released part of that war chest to enable my daughter to buy a house significantly more that the £7k tat I released to Adam to run his BMW 5 series that I still run as the Red Octopus Company Car. The 5 Series is now up for sale as I am going self employed an will run my 3 series through Red Camel system. Simple stuff really I am a part trained accountant and do all my own tax / vat returns. I expose they details to my accountant at year end just to do the year end return – for BBCommuniSYS I did all my own returns for many many years.

Arrow Mailing burnt down in 2007 and I started work for Unicom in the Sales Department – and there begins my involvement with Verastar which is a story that I will tell you when I leave the company. I will just say that at this time it is Red Octopus company business and I can not discuss that due to conflict of interest – I am contracted to Verastar and will not conduct myself in  any way where there is a conflict of interest and with that I will say that I will ask my Senior Sebior Seenior Manager via my mamager if there is a conflict of interest which is the proper way to communicate to your manager.  I was guilty of one thing at Communisis Broadprint that was goung to the Board of Directors over my line manager. It is understandable why Nick Cosgrove hated me as did Darren at Arrow Mailing – The difference between Communisis and Arrow is that Communisis was a dis honest Company thatr dis not respect its employees and that arrow way an honourable company that respected its employees. Communisys did not prompote me and did not recognose my IT Skills. Arrow did recognise my many skills – as an IT Consultant and allowed me to  conduct my IT affairs during works time – they also recognised  that I had many skills and had me doing painting and decorating, joinery and carpet laying at Directors Houses. I realise that they were underpaying me as a contractor but it improved my skill set  – at the time of the fire they had me working as a scaffolding engineer and a construction worker building an extension to the factory.

Sadly it was a fire in the outside storage area that saw the end of Arrow – I would have loved to work with Paul and Craig on Red Octopus  Multi-Media which I had set up for Arrow Mailing in 2007. Sad days…… I hope all my ex employees found work – I will seek some of them out to see if they want to get involved in Mailshots – they only need to rent a colour printer from Hitec Computers via Red Camel System who will arrange the credit agreement.

Enough said this is a super long blog which I will transfer to my google drive as part of my on-line CV  I can now go to bed a rest easy without having to think about my CV which is a constant cause of sleepless nights and brings on stress attacks like I have had this week.  Another thing about wordpress in 2007 I built 50 websites using WordPress when I Branded then for David Gosling they were take down due to breech of contract. To this day i do not know why was it because it was for commercial use and have they now changed the conditions – best check the conditions before you use WordPress.

As for protopage I contacted them and they stated that I could register as many sites asa I wish so there is no worry. I am going to write to somebody to say that Protopage deserves and award for its contribution to industry.  I will include Verastar in that communicate simply for allowing me secondary employment. WordPress also has a bug – if you write too much it does not save – so I best be off now it is 00:30 and I have missed my football I will have to get up early to watch it….. Goodnight.

During the week I limit my work for Red Octopus to just 15 minutes per night a one hour on a Wednesday  for skype sessions  to David Gosling at Bitesize Golf. However, in july 2017 I broke off contact with David and there has been no skype session.  I do not release my skype address as my 15 minutes a night is generally replying to companies in India want to do business with my and the replying to recruitment agencies which keep offering me jobs at aroid £45k per year.  i simply explain to them that i injoy my work as a Community Guardian as CEO of Redcamel Systems and now CEO of Red Octopus and that I enjoy working with Hitec Computers and now Gatley Computers under the Manchester Discount Card scheme.

My work is simple I have got to go round all the restaurants in Manchester as advised by the doorman at the Midland Hotel near the Library where I will be operating to select which restaurant to have my evening meal – Paid for by Red Octopus. I am assigning a budget of £2,000 per year for my Saturday Night Entertainment in Manchester paid for by Red Octopus.  This is extravagant but I am due some money coming to me from the inheritance of cousin Billy Walker. It is my intention to simply use this money to once again enjoy the better things in life. And two that end I have invested in  Withington Golf Club once more and I would like Tom to contact his community to have a simple walk in the park at Withington Golf club as a visitor and I would like John Atkinson to chose a date for that event to be through our golf society.

With that Susan has instructed me not to get involved with and people on the street.

When Adam died the last thing that I said to Adam was if you are going to do something silly I will follow you. On the week before Adams death I was instructed by Feya my line manager to go to the hospital and discuss things with them. I took time to go to the hospital and a member of Manchester Mental Health came to visit Adam. on the eve of his death MMH said that Adam was ok and that he suffers from anxiety.

Since Adams death i have been suffering with thoughts of suicide – Veratsar have been very supportive of me they gave me long term sick for Adam and long term sick for my Cancer.

This week I had 2 1/2 days off with stress induced by thoughts of suicide and sleepless nights. In 2007 I had two jobs ant that time I was working 20 hours per day for six months. I got so busy in my ICT work that I had to give up my full time job for two weeks and went with a doctors note with stress.  It was a good move as I engaged with Manchester Mental Heath and was given relaxation therepy at Withington Hospital.

It was this engagement with the hospital and mention of suicide the the Crisis Team was sent out to see Adam. When I hard the new the first person I contacted was Feya my manager – she came round to care for me. I owe Verastar alot  I owe Feya and I owe John and I owe Andy for allowing me to work for the company when I have so many health issues.   Ohhhh I also haver diabetes which makes me really realy tired and om some days when I have not been sleeping the days are so so long  – but I have been told that my productivity is fine but I need to focus on accuracy. I have indicted that  trining is an issue and I am looking to John to provide more training and for mow my employment ois safe. I would like to continue to work for Verastar on minimum wage till I retire and there after. My plan is to work till I am 70 and at Verastar that should be an opton as I do a simple job which helps my mental health – I am certain that without an interest I would soon die after I am 65.

That is why I am engaging with Google Garage now – I am setting myself up for retirement.  when I retire I will no longer be able to afford the luxury of Virgin Fibre broadband – The service that i get from Virgin is excellent they sign in to my IT and configure my machines to act as home servers for my Community Guardian work.

When I take my retirement in 3 years time I will register as self employed and take Verastar broadband.  All I can say at this point is that we do great deals I am not allowed to say anything more due to my position in the Sales Team.

In closing thank you all – all the 20 calls that I missed on my mobile and thank you Sue as a key holder and carer to think about coming round to see if I was safe. I assure you that I am safe and with so much opportunity in my life.

Can you please inform Andy that I need another session with him to complete a Business Modal Canvas and that I would like to pay him for the next session if that can be arranged with his employer. I need a canvas for a company involved in starting up and ceasing businesses. I know as my carer you want me to stop my business ideas and that you think very strongly about it and that I am not allowed to discuss it when we meet for coffee……  Sorry to mention you so much in my blog – Emma does and we both love you so so much.  Thank you for allowing me this blog – I did ask you first.

Finally I have taken on board your instructions I  will say that Red Camel Systems and Red Octopus will not engage with people on the street – but we will engage with the unemployed in general through my Community Guardian work with Manchester Central Library

Tom – simply Sorry – I owe you.

Emma – Love you lots.
