November 2011 is proving to be the warmest November since records began. November is also a special month for me as it is my birthday. This makes me think of accounting records “in my day”.

Being an older member of PPL, I remember when technology was none existent. The outcome and the method for accounts was always the same – money out / money in. How we got there took much longer and needed many more team players.

Perhaps the introduction to work from my first employer put me in good stead for the years spent employed in various industries. My first job from school at the splendid age of 16 was a grounding better to none. It has kept me focused even when “the job” wasn’t all I wanted. The rewards are a “pay packet” at the end of the week/month – this is always worthy of dedication to the job.

Turning the digits round at 61, I still feel we, as an older generation, cannot be written off.
