The political landscape of Scotland and UK took another twist today when First Minister Nicola Sturgeon stated her intention to start the procedure for a potential second Scottish Independence Referendum.
With the upcoming UK exit from the EU and subsequent removal of Scotland - who voted to remain part of the EU, accompanied by frustration with the lack of compromise and negotiation coming from the UK Government, our First Minister believes the option of Independence for our country or the option of a Conservative led Brexit should be a choice the people of Scotland have the opportunity to make.
The debate over the political future of Scotland is now back on. We can only hope that those who will once again have the future of Scotland in their hands will listen to all the options from both sides and arrive at a decision that not only is best for the present time but also for the future of our own children and future generations of those who live and work in Scotland.
It may be the weekend and some of us will be enjoying some downtime but electricity doesn't know its Saturday or Sunday and continues to power our lives which means electrical safety is a 24/7/365 concern and something we all must be aware of to make sure we keep safe as best as we can.
Electrical safety especially in private rented homes has improved greatly over the last few years due to a change in electrical and fire safety regulations meaning mandatory electrical wiring testing and increased fire detectors has improved the safety for the tenants.
Improving electrical safety in homes and businesses continues to be at the top of the agenda for our electrical trade organisation in Scotland SELECT and their hard work so far should be congratulated and their efforts for continual improvement supported.
Last year I wrote a small article on electrical safety and efficiency in homes which was published in the popular Love Local magazine which covers Stirling and Clackmannanshire areas.
The article can be read below and if you have any questions about how you can improve electrical safety and efficiency in your premises please ask by commenting on this post or contact me via our website.

In an inaugural presidential speech that set a very high bar full of promises President Trump has now been sworn in as the most powerful man in the world.
I believe that some of his future decisions will be not be as bad as some fear but in his #TrumpSpeech today in which was very much all about putting America first and making that country great again, which I do get, some of his patriotic words in his speech whether over immigration, trade or world relations will no doubt fuel the fire of his supporters ill feelings towards others in the world and that is something that worries me the most. An out of control fire of hatred of others by some Americans fuelled by ill words from the President will easily spread and burn relations with the rest of the world and the unknown consequences that may bring.
Stating what is wrong and who is to blame for all of America and World problems is easy to do while in opposition or on a campaign trail, well now that journey is over and a new journey begins where his actions now must match his frank words.
Closer to home we have the Brexit journey about to begin and along that path may be an option of a second Scottish Independance journey.
While we must continue to put our full efforts into our own life in our family and business journeys there is no doubt that the political journey that will be swirling around over all our heads in the coming years will have many many bumps along the way.
Fasten Your Seatbelts - several unknown journeys are about to begin.
I'm delighted that we have won two contracts over the past week that will have our electricians travelling to all corners of Scotland over the next few months carrying out electrical testing work.
Our work includes fixed wiring, emergency light and fire detection testing and we may be able to get some more cracking scenic photos on our travels.
I've been privileged over the past 20 years to travel to and work in the West Coast of Scotland mostly from as north as Isle of Mull / Oban down towards Isle of Bute and all in between.
I don't travel as much as I used to in this area but I am just back from working this week on Isle of Bute and with wintry weather around it got me thinking about some of the photographs I have taken of the scenery and weather conditions over the years so I've had a quick look back at my archives and posted some of my favourite ones.
