Stupid rules OK

November 4th, 2018 · No Comments · Life

I may have mastered the art of stupid, but at least I have some competition within the family. After a couple of embarrassing incidents where we had to call our son to come home from work and let us in the house because we forgot to pick up a set of keys when walking the […]

Accident waiting to happen

September 11th, 2017 · 3 Comments · Life

I am starting to think that Jayne and I are both a bit accident prone. Just recently I have concussed myself on a kitchen cupboard door and stabbed myself with a fork while washing up.  I have also taken chunks out of my leg twice manouevering my bicycle around the house. And I don’t want […]

New ways to spend money

June 17th, 2017 · Comments Off on New ways to spend money · Life, Technology

It seems like each new advance in technology just gives you more opportunities to spend money buying stuff you already have. The advent of CD led a lot of people to buy new copies of LPs they had on vinyl – a trend that is now getting reversed to an extent. The advent of DVD […]

Letting the side down

June 13th, 2017 · Comments Off on Letting the side down · Life

I do feel like I have betrayed my basic priciples today. I worked from home, but still wore my work suit. To make up for it, when I clocked off I changed into cargo shorts and a t-shirt to go to a council event.

Under new management

September 16th, 2015 · Comments Off on Under new management · Life, Politics

At work today… Colleague: So what do you make of your new leader then? Me: Brilliant! He seems to be delivering the goods. I wanted him in charge years ago, but he was all tied up with the Croatian national team… hang on. You mean Jeremy Corbyn don’t you? I may not be the political […]

My emails

February 9th, 2014 · Comments Off on My emails · Life, Technology

Huge apologies to anybody who has tried to contact me by e-mail on the old Skuds@blueyonder address in the last four or five (or maybe more) months. I didn’t read your e-mails. Here’s the thing. I decided to use my gmail more because it was dead easy to set up on my tablet and phone. […]

A slight mistake from Sky

July 17th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Life, Politics

I saw something hilarious on Sky News earlier. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be on YouTube yet. I’m sure it will be soon thoough. I’m equally sure that Sky News won’t be repeating it like they do with all their other interviews. Not in its entirety anyway. They were after some opinions on the G4S […]

Time flies at the Crawley Observer

October 26th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Life, Politics

Breakfast was made much more amusing today courtesy of the Crawley Observer and what the youth of today would no doubt call an epic fail. In such a busy environment as the Obby offices maybe it does only feel like a few months since May 2010…

You’ve got mail

July 31st, 2011 · Comments Off on You’ve got mail · Life

I have a very bad habit.  I sometimes don’t open post for months.  The thing is that every bill I have to pay regularly is on a direct debit so anything that looks like a bill is really just a statement of account requiring no action other than filing or shredding. When I do open […]

No comment

June 29th, 2011 · Comments Off on No comment · Technology

It turns out that I effectively turned off comments here when I upgraded WordPress the other day. I forgot that the captcha plug-in I use always screws up when I upgrade WordPress and I have to de-activate and re-activate it to make it all work again. I always forget.  I expect I will forget next […]
