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.
The previous was one of the resident pooches Angus and Douglas, a.k.a 'Gus 'n Doug' or 'Gormless 1 and Gormless 2'. This is the feline version of Gormless. His name is William, or 'Will-I-Um the Fat Spotty One' to his mates. He's not actually fat, just huge. Last time we checked he was just under 8kg, which is not far off the same as my other half's one year old granddaughter. We had to crane him onto the scales. This moggy is also a slob. We took the image a couple of weeks ago and I don't think he has moved since. Chase mice? No chance. I reckon he goes out on the town with them as mates at night.
Use the contact form to tell us if you come across a slobbier or more bone-idle puss than this.

posted 6.7.20. Pages of time. It is said that time moves in mysterious ways; according to Einstein it can even move at different speeds. But how exactly does it move? And does an appreciation of the philosophy of the motion of time offer an insight into conflict resolution? GF explores this from the perspective of Books and Bookmen, children’s television and the after-shocks of a pandemic. (see Podcasts, IMO episode 12)
posted 19.6.20. Thoughts on thoughts. As civil unrest and protests sweep across a world still reeling from the coronavirus pandemic, inequality and suppression are feeding a mood for change. GF ponders whether philosophy may offer a path towards a more level playing field on which that change may be grounded. (see Podcasts, IMO episode 11)
posted 16.6.20. This time around, a couple of posts relating to Mary. See Sparrow and scroll to Beyond borders for a review of her recent presentation. Then see Blog this date for news of her latest nomination for award. We are all very proud of her.
COMING SOON: 'Rock solid bass-ics, an examination of the crucial but often understated driving force behind a band. And what force would that be, exactly? Well, there’s a cryptic clue in the title.'

posted 30.3.20. Behind the barricades. The coronavirus pandemic is of worldwide concern as the race is on to reduce transmission and develop a vaccine. Yet beyond the medical concerns, what implications are there for the eventual resumption of our ‘normal’ way of life and even upon the state of our democracy? (see Podcasts; IMO, episode 10)
posted 11.3.20. Age of reason. A long-defunct Grammar School, a pupil in the ‘shallow waters’ of his formative years and a celebration of half a century since the death of one of our greatest intellects, Graham reflects on how this rich combination may have inadvertently led to unintended consequences. (see Podcasts; IMO, episode 9)
