New wheels

July 16th, 2016 · No Comments · Life

More evidence, if it was ever needed, that I would make a very poor Top Gear presenter: only eleven days after buying a new car, I finally got round to driving it! The gap is because I don’t really need a car much myself and if Jayne and I go anywhere together she usually drives […]

Gotta catch ‘em all

July 16th, 2016 · No Comments · Life, Technology

Tonight was not exactly how I imagined my middle ages to be. At home, babysitting the grandchildren, while the wife takes the dogs out for a walk – returning after two-and-a-half hours, dead chuffed because she now has a Pikachu.

Splitters!

July 15th, 2016 · No Comments · Life

If you look at the Wikipedia page for Assemblies of God you will find this wonderful paragraph: The Assemblies of God should not be confused with the Assemblies of God International Fellowship, the International Assemblies of God Fellowship, and the Independent Assemblies of God International, all of which are Pentecostal denominations. Also not to be […]

Vive La France

July 8th, 2016 · No Comments · Life

I enjoyed watching the France v. Germany game tonight. I especially enjoyed seeing the odd West Ham shirt amongst the crowds of French supporters. I wonder if they are Hammers fans going over there to support Dimitri Payet, or just French supporters who decided to get a Payet club strip instead of national strip. It […]

Got a new car this week. I am very pleased with it. I have not actually driven it yet, but Jayne says it goes very well. I think I will get a chance to get behind the wheel on Sunday. This time I had a look at the engine before we took it from the […]

Flying visit

July 8th, 2016 · No Comments · Life

I had a day trip to Scotland today to go to a meeting in Glasgow, which made it quite a long day, although not quite as long as that day trip to Hengelo earlier in the year. I have still ended up with a carbon footprint of clown-shoe dimensions though. It should have been easy. […]

Passport swindle

July 7th, 2016 · No Comments · Life

When we booked our holiday, one of the requirements was that you must have a passport that is valid for six months after the return date. This winds me up. You can have a passport that expires in December but you can’t use it after June so your ten-year passport is effectively only valid for […]

Wave to me

July 6th, 2016 · No Comments · Life

After a couple of barren days, Euro 2016 is back on the telly again tomorrow, so time for me to get back to my obsession with the shots of the crowd. I am still waiting for for that moment when somebody spots that they have been picked out and then waves at the camera instead […]

Losing Face, gaining Book

July 6th, 2016 · No Comments · Life, Technology

“Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends, we’re so glad you could attend, come inside! come inside!”, as ELP said, or as the legendary George Costanza would say “I’m back baby!” All of which is just to say that, having neglaected this website for ages, I shall probably be posting more often […]

The Ice Beneath Her

June 27th, 2016 · No Comments · Life

I have just finished reading my first Scandinavian thriller. It is called The Ice Beneath Her by Camilla Grebe, due to be published on September 8th. This is what I thought about it…
