Throwback Thursday!

Those of you who don’t know, Throwback Thursday is a ‘thing’ in the Land of Social Media. It happens on a Thursday (as the name might suggest) and is a day when we remember the wonders of yester-year.

Some people eat Marathon bars for breakfast, some like to wear Jane Fonda leotards with matching leg-warmers, some even like to crack out the trusty Nokia 3310 and play Snake all day (using only 2% battery, *sigh*).

At The Peloton, we like to crack open the Extended Trial Balances and use real-live writing implements. Gone are the trusty calculators, and in is the mental arithmatic (“brain maffs” we like to call it) – which is fine for our Further-Mathlete’s Michelle Rowe and Talan Archbold – but the rest of us are all lagging behind doing our 9x table using the Finger Method, commonly taught to 6 year olds. In the mean time we all get half an hour on the type-writer  and eat Spam and Smash for lunch.

Let’s get back to the point of hashtagthrowbackthursday.

Michelle – having recently moved house – found her late father’s old accountancy textbooks, old manual workings, t-accounts and a lovely photograph of Mr Rex Rowe working hard at his old desk. Michelle’s path was laid out there and then, all we can say is thank goodness for Rex Rowe!

If you would like to know more about Extended Trial Balances, please feel free to call us on 01326 660022 and we will take you on a journey back to 1995.
