Will-i-am and Kate MiddleClass

Anyone want to take three guesses as to which photo will dominate all English language newspapers tomorrow – of course you won’t need three guesses. Am bit surprised that I didn’t received my invite, after all I’ve met nearly all the Royals (Charlie boy twice) and I thought I was almost family – albeit an […]

Who ya gonna call?

A few years ago I took a road trip west of London and pitched up in Salisbury (via Andover) (which sounds like an instruction in the Lovers Guide) and Salisbury’s actually quite a pleasant place, the big difference I noticed was that Andover seems to have a disproportionate number of shoe shops and Salisbury has […]

Come fly with me.

  I tend to like travelling quite a bit, my usual score is to pitch up at Heathrow airport, ask when the next plane is going to the North America and buy a ticket for it. BTW Minneapolis in February is bloody freezing. So is New Jersey, in Feb. And Toronto but it seems to […]

My Second Worse Holiday.

About 20 years ago when I was doing my Nurse training, four of us, Tony, Dave, Neil and myself decided to go on an ‘exotic’ holiday, I had already been to Egypt so I suggested we four lads go to Turkey. No one went to Turkey at that time, it was completely un-westernised ( i.e. […]

Impressions about Barcelona, well the following is a list of jobs that are Credit Crunch Proof and as secure as Fort Knox. Sunglass sales. You will never go out of a job if […]

One lump or two?

Here’s a test for all you brain boxes out there, what is so special about the Mayor of High Wycombe, what does s/he (and his/her top staff) do in May every year that no other mayor in the whole wide world does? The clues in the picture.  Not just the mayor of High Wycombe but […]

Marmite Nuts.

Dear Agony Aunt, OK, this won’t mean too much to anyone across the pond but in the UK we have Marmite which we spread thinly on our toast, you either love it or hate it.. full stop. Only the English could sell something using that tag-line. So my part-time flatmate loves it, above is a […]

A Cunning Linguist.

They’re very polite in Jersey, you know, much more polite and patient than The Dating Leprechaun. I have a friend that comes around to see me here occasionally, nothing unusual about that but sometimes its difficult to get rid of him. I’m ok chatting away with him but after 30 minutes I’ve nothing really left […]
