Climb aboard the train of life with me and my beautiful, talented, granddaughter Katie, as we rekindle a journey of eight decades from a war torn, blazing Manchester through to the 21st Century world of Silverstone, the home of British Motor Racing. Share the anguish of a parental loss of a much-loved son, Mark, the nationally admired co-presenter of the BBC's Children's Television Arts Programme Smart, and embrace the positive, uplifting outcome as a result of the birth of Speight of the Art - The Mark Speight Foundation Registered Charity founded in 2009 a year after his tragic departure, a Charity already having benefitted some 20,686 children and elderly persons since its inception. We live in a high pressured, rapidly changing technological environment, so pause for a moment with us, turn over these pages, and who knows, you might see a little of your own self and life within. But most of all, enjoy the fun and fascination of the unpredictable twists and turns of living a life to the full. After all, we are only here once, aren't we? If you see yourself do let me know, but sit back and enjoy the ride!
