Steepest road in Crawley?

December 19th, 2009 · Comments Off on Steepest road in Crawley? · Life

A chap in Hobbs Road is in the local paper complaining about the lack of a gritting bin in his road.  Having had my own simlar experiences discussin grit bins with West Sussex council I have a lot of sympathy for him, but where I have to disagree is when he says it is the […]

Snap away

December 15th, 2009 · Comments Off on Snap away · Life

Lets hope that this means that stupid things like this won’t be happening in the future- but just to make sure you could always go to Trafalgar Square on January 23rd for what could be one of the most photographed events of the year and an ideal opportunity to show off all those camera-related xmas […]

Prescott-tastic

December 11th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Politics

This evening I took Chrystal into Crawley town centre for a Labour Party fund-raising dinner.  I was supposed to be taking Jayne, but her hip was playing up so Chrystal was a last-minute substitute. The guest of honour was John Prescott.  He was full of praise for Laura Moffatt and Gordon Brown.  Not quite so […]

Fade resistant

November 28th, 2009 · Comments Off on Fade resistant · Life

Saw this advert on Flickr and was immediately drawn to the bit about the posters being fade resistant for 200 years. I know that you can do all sorts of things with science that are well beyond my understanding so maybe you can prove that somethng will last 200 years but on the other hand…  […]

Have I got Moos for you

November 13th, 2009 · Comments Off on Have I got Moos for you · Life

My new Moo cards arrived the other day.  On a whim I decided to order some conventional-sized business cards instead of the helf-height Moo cards I had before.  Feeling in a modern frame of mind I did not include any address or landline – just mobile number, email address and URLs for this blog and […]

The Silver Triffid of Horsham

November 1st, 2009 · Comments Off on The Silver Triffid of Horsham · Life

On Saturday morning I took advantage of that short window of opportunity between the sun coming up and the rain coming down to take a few photos in and around the park.  I particularly wanted to see the new sculpture outside the Pavilions: Light Tree by Steve Geliot. It looks OK to me, although it […]

Labour conference – day five

October 2nd, 2009 · 3 Comments · Politics

The last day of conference is a funny one.  It is only a half-day for a start.  I imagine the original reason for that is so that delegates and others can stand a chance of getting home afterwards if they live at the other end of the country. That does still apply, of course, for […]

Labour conference – day four

September 30th, 2009 · Comments Off on Labour conference – day four · Politics

Following Tuesday’s over-long day, when I was in Brighton from 0800 to 2300 I took it a bit easier today and caught a later train.  Actually a bit later than intended: Jayne was a bit unwell and waiting for the doctor to call back so no lift to the station – I had to walk […]

Labour conference – day one

September 28th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Politics

Well I finally made it to a party conference.  It is too early to know yet whether the conference is/will be a success for the party or for me.  I am still getting used to the whole thing. As it is only down the road I am commuting, making use of the 20% discount I […]

Big weekend

September 21st, 2009 · Comments Off on Big weekend · Life

It has been a big weekend, with two late nights.  On Saturday Jayne and I went to the middle of nowhere for a family wedding and then tonight I took Frankie up to London for some live comedy.
