Flew to Spain for a holiday, absolutely terrified of flying, faced the fear and learned to fly. A Cessna 150 was the first at Leicester Aero Club, then a Beagle Bulldog at Castle Donnington, fantastic fun.
You don’t have to learn to fly to eliminate the fear of flying, Hypnotherapy does the job!
Wanted a more ambitious business life, so I joined a Scottish Brewery, hard work but rewarding.
Divorced, nasty business, unless you are a lawyer, very adversarial. Met my present wife which was a good result.
I developed glandular fever, twice in 4 months, so was not able to follow my brewing career.
