A surprise call from lovely Eleni – what on earth am I doing in cold Wales?

Well that made my day. Lovely Eleni from the Kourounis taverna in Kambos called to wish my family a Merry Christmas and to say thank you for the books for her two kids which arrived today. I am not sure what her son will make of Tin Tin but if it helps his English a bit all is good. Eleni asks how I am? Cold say I.

For it is terribly cold in Wales. Both outside and inside the welsh Hovel. Though I have our new radiators on full blast there are none in the dining room where I now sit and the floors man has just been to polish the tiles that lead to the rest of the house. I am thus trapped and so have been to my woodshed to saw logs and start a fire. But it is still freezing.

Actually beyond the tiles it is not much better. The now exposed giant fireplaces suck whatever heat the radiators generate straight out of the room. I have ordered some “chimney cushions” to stop this but they are yet to arrive. So, I am cold.

Eleni says that in Kambos and up at the Greek Hovel it is more than 20 degrees. Why, I wonder not for the first time, am I in Wales not Greece?

Tom Winnifrith Video Shareshow No 15: Stuart Ashman runs what could be a 20 bagger and Lucian Miers on his longs and shorts

And now from Wales, by just 30 yards, it is my new weekly video show. This costs 99p per episode, and you can either listen to, or watch, some sparky interviews with Staurt Ashman of Skinbiotherapeutics (SBTX) where I am 130% up in seven months but think the shares could 20 bag from here and bear raider Lucian Miers on macro economics his cooling feelings on cold and warming feelings on bitcoin and his big longs and shorts. Then there are a few thoughts on companies you must NOT own, including the latest nonsense from the scallywags at Powerhouse Energy (PHE).You can access the show HERE
