A second appearance on the Chrissy B Show
Posted by Malcolm Castle on Friday, July 26, 2013

So, on the 19th of July I went off to London again to once more appear on Chrissy B's Show. The subject this time was Near death experiences. Fortunately I haven't had an accidental one myself, but simply being a firefighter puts you into some pretty close to 'near death experiences' on a regular basis. Anyway, it was a very enjoyable evening and the show can be watched via the link on the home page if you're interested

Fantastic weekend at Abbotsholme School
Posted by Malcolm Castle on Wednesday, July 17, 2013

I had been asked to be the guest speaker at the 'Summer Gathering' at Abbotsholme School. This is when the sixth formers bid farewell to their years at a quite fantastic independent school.
I had decided to split my speech into two halves. The first half poked a little light-hearted fun at the Headmaster who is a friend from way back. He is very highly respected in his profession so I was careful to be selective with my choice of stories. The second half concentrated on my adventures in becoming an author. I hope the experiences I've had, and the philosophies I live by inspired at least a few of the school leavers.
I was made incredibly welcome and with a whole weekend of activities and entertainment in the wonderful weather and the beautiful surroundings, I ended up having had one of the most enjoyable weekends I've had it ages!!! Thank you Steve and Heather for your superb hospitality. Please go to the Gallery to see some pictures from the weekend.
