Harry Potter “What shall we throw, George?” “I don’t know, Fred, what do you think we should throw?” “How about nothing?” said Ginny, “We can just de-gnome the garden like always.” “That’s boring!” chorused Fred and George, their eyes falling on a basket of eggs… “I bought a new one, ‘arry!” Hagrid said, with a […]

I’ve been dreaming for 20 years. Now I’m planning for reality… Is that good, or bad, and what other challenges are there?
