Over the weekend we went back to Essex for some family visiting. Sitting in Mum’s house I was looking at the many family photos that adorn the place and noticed that there were two photos I was in that must have been taken some time apart. I was doing the usual comparison of how much […]

In a break from tradition he says he is willing to tolerate foreigners, or at least he is willing to encourage them to support him, providing they accept “our dresscode and our laws” Hang on… France has a […]
They won’t be doing the pogo in Togo, and it will still be Coca-Cola in Angola, but I’m willing to bet there will be a lot more than banana being consumed in Ghana tonight after they got through to the second round of the World Cup! While I am slightly tempted to dig out my […]
