Interviewee's Headshot

Tracey Clarke, Seven Families

1.What was the first album you can remember buying?

It would most likely have been either Donny and Marie Osmond, Showaddywaddy, or Gillan! Oh dear! Do I really want to admit to this?! I must say that my taste has evolved since then! 

2.What is the best thing about living on a narrow boat?

The relaxed pace of life within a very caring and friendly community. Cruising through the system in slow motion enables a far greater ability to absorb the beauty, appreciate the tranquility, and kind of feel the living history. 

3.What is your favourite film or book, and why?

The Bible. It contains a bit of everything; stories, biographies, scandal, poetry, history, teaching, wisdom, guidance, reflection, prediction, and a whole host of other fabulous things. Every opening of the Bible brings a new revelation, a new emphasis, a new contemplation, a new lesson.

4.If you won £1m tomorrow on the lottery what might you do with it?

I actually have no idea how to do the lottery!  The first thing I would feel obliged and pleased to do would be to clear our remaining debts. Next would come a very significant donation to Guide Dogs UK. I would dearly love to be able to say a good 'Thank you' for their fantastic gift of Oakley and all that he does for me and means to me. I rather suspect our daughters would enjoy our sudden ability to indulge them too! I had better stop dream-spending there! 

5.If you could change your career and do anything else instead, what might it be?

I would dearly love to be able to use my relatively new-found enjoyment of writing to enter into the world of regular magazine columns, and, even more appealingly, book-writing.

A MIND THAT IS SET ISN’T A GOOD MINDSET according to Alan Newman


I have on the desk in front of me a book published in 1962:  Anatomy of Britain by Anthony Sampson and an ABI publication from 2014: Identifying the Challenges of a Changing World. Most of this article focuses on the lessons that we might choose to learn from the ABI document, but it was a lucky accident that the Anthony…

Michael Kelly of Fineos ponders “Problems of a Longer Life”


What is the main problem with living a long life?  You may well ask what I mean by problem; after all who wants to die young, apart from Roger Daltrey and Pete Townsend and I’m not sure they were entirely sincere.  The modern world has bought us many benefits, one of which is greatly extended life, so why should that…

They say that you can divide the whole consumer economy up into something over 100 separate sectors, from Alcoholic Beverages through to Yellow Fats (no Z).  And when you do, and you examine them all, you’ll find that there isn’t a single one in which the cheapest brand is the market leader. Yes, certainly, in every sector you’ll find some…
