Welcome to the website of Graham Fisher MBE, proprietor of G. Fisher Enterprises.
Our analytics team tell us that the images we put here of The Man Himself were being over-downloaded as screenshots to scare the scammers away so instead we bring you alternatives that are far prettier on the eye.
This delightful little Aga-guarder is Margaret Kate Bartholomew (pedigree cat, pedigree name) or Maisie the Minx for short, a.k.a. Mais-poose, a British short hair who was, unbelievably, abandoned by her previous keeper. We offered her a new home as a rescue-puss and she has responded well, albeit she is very feisty and needs careful handling if you are not to be 'minxed', or ripped to shreds by her talons. We adore her and, as the rescue-cat-lady says: 'She has landed on her paws'. However, as with our other pussies, she is a bone idle slob-ess and will lie on a hot stove until you can hear her internals bubble. Honestly, we keep all these moggies and still have to get Rentokil in for the mice. Do cats know satire?
Use the contact form to tell us if you come across a more laid-back looking creature than this.

posted 24.11.20. In loving memory. Within a few years the internal combustion engine, arguably the most ubiquitous and liberating mechanical contraption ever invented, is to be outlawed in new cars and will be consigned to the history books. GF offers an affectionate reflection on what will be the end of an era. (see Podcasts; In my opinion, episode 19)
posted 9.11.20. Colours of power. The USA Presidential Elections of 2020 have redefined political debate. But have they sent us down a path that may change the course of democracy as we know it? And can we apply the brakes?
posted 3.11.20. Negative to positive. How and why do we judge others on that scantest of information provided by initial appearances. And is that venerable adage ‘you only get one chance to make a first impression’ still relevant in the age of social media? (see Podcasts; In my opinion, episode 17)
posted 16.10.20. Admiring the view. Ever since Darwin’s revolutionary notions on the origins of species, theories of evolution have been used to explain our natural world based on empirical principles. But do they always prove convincing beyond doubt over a more divine authority? GF examines issues of science versus faith based on his own personal quest for answers. (see Podcasts; In my opinion, episode 16)
posted 26.9.20. The Routledge Handbook of Mapping and Cartography, probably the last word on how to make a map. No surprise, 'our Mary' is in there with a contribution on the use of colour. (see Sparrow and scroll down)
24.9.20. A better way. Can scientific advancements trump good old-fashioned human knowledge and experience? GF examines the issue from the perspective of an appreciation of Uisge Beatha, the Gaelic ‘water of life’. (see Podcasts; In my opinion, episode 15)
posted 14.9.20. Tales From The Barn captured on canvas. Stunning. (see Blog and Pics)
posted 2.9.20. Scheduled for broadcast on Black Country Radio www.blackcountryradio.co.uk (date to be announced) here is a special preview for loyal visitors to GF's site …
'The flambouyant vocalist, dazzling guitar player and manic drummer may be the ones who catch the eye and hog the attention but who is it that keeps them all, quite literally, on track? Join me for a special one-off, one-hour rock-umentary featuring an examination of the crucial but often understated driving force behind a band, the bass player.' (see Podcasts Friday Night Rocks, episode 8)
