Episode 1 – Thank you Mr President. No, really…

HIlary, your computer upgrade has arrived.....
Hilary, your computer upgrade has arrived…..

A couple of hours ago, when I was drinking in the ‘You’ve Been Tango’d’ moment that was Donald J Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States of America, I couldn’t have imagined saying these words:  Thank you, Mr President!  Yes, THANK YOU!  Because if it wasn’t for you making me feel slightly queasy, I wouldn’t have torn myself away from the internet and finished producing my audio feature about writer, Alex Cruickshank, and his awesome Back to the Future-esque computer collection!

If I could turn back time….

If I could find a way….

(I never imagined I’d be nostalgic for lunchtime.)

Thank you Alex!  And thank you Mr President.  People, it’s gonna be GREAT.
