Two thousand??

March 4th, 2009 · 3 Comments · Life

I am finding this story hard to believe.  I am not saying that I think it is not true – I do not know enough about truck specifications have a qualified opinion – just that it is hard to believe, in the same way that it is hard to believe that something the size of […]

There goes Concorde again

February 14th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Music

A work colleague brought in a song for me to listen to recently.  He thought I might enjoy it so he brought in a minidisc of it…  which ties in very nicely with the previous post about data formats.   I gave up trying to find the minidisc walkman that I know is around somewhere and […]

Frothing at the mouth

January 30th, 2009 · Comments Off on Frothing at the mouth · Life

The Daily Mail is frothing at its collective mouth over Jonathan Ross.  When I saw this story I genuinely thought it was a very clever spoof because it really does feel like the sort of thing Chris Morris or The Onion would do.  I double-checked and triple-checked all the URLs involved because I really couldn’t […]

Cello scrotum

January 28th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Life, Work

At work we have TV screens in the corridors outside the lifts.  They display company news and information most of the time, and sometimes they show the BBC news.  In the afternoon they also show traffic maps, but throughout all of this there is a ticker at the bottom with headlines from the BBC’s news […]

Party in Session

December 10th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Life, Work

We are well into the Christmas party season now.  Last week Jayne was out at various functions for four nights in a row.  One was my company’s annual do.   Being the sort of miserable bastard who doesn’t really like Christmas much I normally avoid company parties, but after hearing tales of how lavish they are […]

Maybe I’m Amazed

December 2nd, 2008 · Comments Off on Maybe I’m Amazed · Life

I had a bit of a shock seeing those pictures of Guildford cathedral all over the news.  I was there 24 hours before the police shot somebody in the grounds of the cathedral. It is still unclear exactly why the police shot the man, and it is even less clear why the BBC website threw […]

The Rev John Stanton gets about a bit doesn’t he?  According to the Times he appears on the infamous BNP members list, but before that he had been a local party chairman of the Green party, had spent four years as a Lib Dem councillor, five years as a Tory and before joining the BNP […]

At my age I shouldn’t worry have to worry about spots… and yet for some reason I had a real belter suddenly apear yesterday, and it has now grown to the point where I am considering adopting the nickname ‘Scaramanga’.

Relax

November 17th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Music

On Saturday I bought a couple of CDs while shopping in France.  I have been picking up French music for about 20 years now with mixed results.  It started when I mistakenly thought that it would help with my language skills.  This was before the days of the Internet and its many lyrics databases, so […]
