Today is the 40th anniversary of the Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy first being broadcast on BBC radio, prior to it becoming a best-selling five-book trilogy, a movie, and generally a timeless masterpiece of science fiction humour.
The late, great Douglas Adams, who was taken from us far too soon at the age of 49 was a brilliant man whose wit and wisdom has transcended his most famous work.
And so, I'd like to share one particular nugget of his wit and wisdom with you all; I'm very happy to live my life by this wonderfully simple little tenet, and I hope you can too:
'I'd far rather be happy than right any day.'
Thank you Douglas Adams.
