SOONER or later it had to happen. I’m referring to new ‘appiness’ technology developed to monitor our daily sense of wellbeing. There are apps for everything else, it seems, so why not one for measuring a person’s happiness?

I’VE developed an interest in Tunningley family history, sparked by the discovery that my recorded family line dates back to 1687, the birth year of my great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather Francis Tunningley. He was a coalminer in Yorkshire.

Having read the report ‘Alarm over rise in fells death toll’ (Gazette, March 21), my initial reaction was that there are so many risk assessment issues around us in our daily lives at home, work, on the way to and from work and even in our health service that it’s no wonder more people are out on the fells taking ‘high adrenaline’ risks.

As pipesmoker, I was fascinated to see the BBC yesterday accused of being ‘Stalinist’ because it allegedly cut out images of the former Prime Minister Harold Wilson’s pipesmoking in a documentary to be screened tonight (Thursday).

I’VE just finished reading a thought-provoking book by that late great adventurer and anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl. Green was the Earth on the Seventh Day recalls the author’s time living like a native on a Polynesian island with his new young wife Liv.

ALTHOUGH living and working in Cumbria, I remain a Yorkshireman at heart. And the said ticker has swelled with pride after a colleague - also a proud Yorkshireman - pointed out fascinating Olympic info.
