DIY CI Blog

October 24, 2018

Today marks the end of this Blog. I will leave the hundreds of blogs I have written up here for a year or so, and then turn them all over to the Centre for Intelligence and Securities Studies, Mercyhurst College along with all copyright rights.

The reason for this is that I am retiring. I am following my beloved spouse and business partner, Carolyn Vella, who retired from The Helicon Group, which she founded, some time ago for health reasons.

Carolyn is now recuperating in hospital from major kidney problems. I expect her home in a couple of weeks. I am spending full time with her now as she goes through her physical rehabilitation.

    I’m so sorry to see you go – though I understand why and can fully appreciate that when the time comes to stop and spend time with loved ones, it’s time to do just that.

    I wish you well and pray that Carolyn recupes without issues and that her prognosis is good.

    Thank you for all that you’ve shared – I have learned a LOT from you over the years.

    Mr. McGonagle- thank you – and Carolyn – for all your contributions, willingness to share your knowledge and insights in the CI marketplace, and best wishes for Carolyn’s recuperation … I’ll be raking leaves (in Upstate NY) along with you… Appreciatively, Brian McLaughlin Information Services & Research
