Charon to be restaurant critic….

You may find this truly astonishing, but I have been invited by Della Croft, the MD of Law And More, of which more later, and Vanessa Wozniak, the Editor of the LawandMore online magazine ……to be their guest restaurant critic!

To be fair, at the age I am, I have eaten quite a bit of food and have done my best to sample and taste the wines of the world. I think I’ll be able to ‘hack’ it.

I was offered this guest spot on the strength of a restaurant review I did on Charon a year ago – re-printed today on the LawandMore website.


Have a look at their website – it is packed with information and is unusual. You may have read my review a year ago. If you have not done so – and would like to do so – have a look here.

I am looking forward to doing my first restaurant review next week. I shall dine well. They have chosen an interesting restaurant for me to visit.

Fancy a Charon email newsletter?…

You are probably deluged with unsolicited emails – but I am not flogging viagra, or, indeed, anything else at the moment. But I do want to provide a weekly email newswire with some rather more serious news coverage – perhaps even analysis? – and would like to invite you to ‘sign-up’ to receive the weekly newswire. You don’t need to read it – and you will be able to unsubscribe at any time.

I am going to be doing a daily news podcast on here (with a short daily review) from next Wednesday 16th April – simply because I enjoy getting up at 3.30 am, reading 5-6 online newspapers and then sitting down with a roll-up and an espresso to bang away at my new age typewriter.  I am moving podcasts and daily review to my blog from Consilio.tv where I have been doing them since January.  I am, of course, continuing to write for Consilio.

If you would like to have yet another email in your inbox weekly – but this time from “Charon” (as opposed to Mr Cialis or The President of some bank in Nigeria offfering you money)please sign up… here (It will have some useful content on it – the nonsense, I shall leave to these pages.)

[By the way – if anyone wants to have the daily newscast on their site – whether for private blogs or professional purposes – happy to provide the mp3. The daily news podcast lasts for about 5 minutes, depending on the news (Or, of course, you can link)]
