Tim's Tip of the Day

We each seem to have to find our own way in this world. The process of discovery of what we want to do , what we can do and how best to compromise the ambition with ability is a charmed process.

Ensign Notes

The blend of local images and stories, political commentary and information continues to be a puzzle that we will just have to keep fighting with. Ensign attempts to do all of these things but the limitation of time has prevented setting up departments and making sure we cover the bases. But most important of all it is your comments and messages that will determine what is done for content.

The Marrakech Agreement
