|Introduction||I’m in my twilight years now working out what to do and how. I’m approaching 57 having done 40 years of something useful. Married to Maggie for 34 of those years with 2 kids in their mid-20’s. My training was in engineering with the UK Atomic Energy Authority. Having qualified, I “emigrated” to Zambia, lured by money and sunshine and in the later years progressed into project management handling the construction of processing plants for the copper/cobalt mining industry. They were exciting and fulfilling days lived to the full. Eventual redundancy turned me to self-employment for 10 years running a high street quick print business. I hated this experience and became my worst employee! I paid dearly for the experience both in money terms and deteriorating health. Now confined to barracks with hypertension, Ankylosing Spondylitis (spinal arthritis), troublesome digestive system and depression, I write this, not out of sympathy, but to develop new interests and pass the time. I crave for intellectual stimulation and some pocket money.|

You have to dig a hole to China. Where do you start?
Personally, I would not consider digging a hole to China.
