Monday 13 May 2013 The Forest Road Reader, No 49

Caught the 5:50 out of new New Street this morning, serviced by the 390 157 Chad Varah. That's a name that's so wildly outside Virgin's usual practice for its Pendelinos, that despite just wanting to sleep the journey away, I was compelled to look it up. And blimey, the Reverend Prebendary Edward Chad Varah was a fascinating bloke - not inclined to become a priest but made a massive go of it, founded The Samaritans, worked on The Eagle, patron of The Terence Higgins Trust, and on the advisory board of top shelf mag Forum. Not bad.

Went large to avoid the Lichtenstein cup.

You may not know Archie Goodwin's work. You should check some of it out.

Microsoft doesn't sound like a fun place to work.

Weekend was good. Trust yours was too.
