An unlikely team is America's only chance A brilliant Ph.D. candidate, a cynical ex-SEAL, and a quirky experimental robot team up against terrorists intent on stealing America’s most powerful nuclear weapon, the Trident submarine. By all measures, they are an unlikely trio--one believes in brawn, another brains, and the third is all geek. What no … Continue reading To Hunt a Sub by Jacqui Murray
If we were having coffee we would be relaxing on my sofa, feet up, with our drinks close by as we nattered about our week. Call it what you will, gabbed, chatted, chewed the fat (to throw in an American phrase) - we would set the world to rights. I'd want to know everything you've been up to, … Continue reading If we were having coffee, I would tell you a story…
If we were having coffee I might glance over my shoulder from time to time, and be forced to admit that I'm worried about retribution. I pranked my daughter a few days ago and she swore payback - she's extremely good at it! This would no doubt lead to a conversation about pranks, and I … Continue reading If we were having coffee…there would be a lot to discuss.
If we were having coffee, it would be ridiculously early (sorry). I'm going on a trip to the seaside today - Bridlington to be exact. It's a place my dad particularly loved and, as it's his birthday, my sisters and I always take this day to do things to remember him. So, we go to … Continue reading If we were having coffee…there would only be time for one cup.
If we were having coffee I would avoid talking about one job, just so I could prattle on about my other. It's a beautiful day, so we would be outside in the garden, sitting beneath a large red umbrella with an array of tasty treats between us. Perhaps we would have a cold drink or, … Continue reading If we were having coffee…we would be dicussing strong female role models
I read a really useful post today on Suzie's blog, which you can find here. It relates to the About page, and it wasn't until I went looking for my own (to check the information is up to date), that I realised it's no longer on the site! It somehow got lost in recent changes. … Continue reading A little Reflection
If we were having coffee, I would apologise for the radio silence; loosely translated as a distinct lack of comments due to an incredibly busy week. We would be sat in my garden because the sun is positively beaming, and I have so much energy I can't deal with confined spaces! You would catch me … Continue reading Three…two…one…and we’re live! Weekend Coffee Share
If we were having coffee, I'd probably let you do most of the talking. You don't mind of course, some weeks are like that. I worked more hours than usual and because I can't give details about the assignments I undertake, it can get a little ambiguous! I would tell you that I worked a … Continue reading Weekend Coffee Share – In which I’m mostly too tired to talk!
If we were having coffee we would be sipping our nectar of choice in separate rooms, chatting away over a webcam, or facetime, or hangouts...video conferencing. Whatever! Of course depending on the time I might be in the car, praying the signal didn't give out, trying to balance my phone (not while driving) so I … Continue reading The Marvels of Modern Technology – If we were having coffee
If we were having coffee I would tell you about my little adventure last night; sweating beneath a spotlight, on a stage in front of a few hundred people, in a room where the acoustics were so bad I couldn't even hear myself think! After ten years of interpreting I fell for the oldest line in the book 'it's … Continue reading The Oldest Line in the Book – Weekend Coffee Share
