Years later when I was about to go self-employed I thought that I’d need a catchy trade name, I tried various things like Alastair’s Landscapes, Alastair the Gardener etc. but it sounded a bit iffy then I came up with “App’y the Gardener” I used that. So when I became the Public Relations Officer for our camping group I needed a name for my column in the newsletter, and thus with a mix of my trade name and the song Happy Talk, App’y Talk was born. I liked it and so I kept it for my Blog.
