This really is quite amazing and certainly worth 5 minutes of your lunchtime break!
By Steve Macrie I went down to see some friends in Rochester, Kent today. They have recently opened a carpet supply and fitting firm and they invited me down to have a look at how they’re getting on. Brilliantly is how! They’ve always been good carpet fitters – they’ve fitted carpet for me on many [...]
Once again my mum has come up trumps with some pictures of irresponsible parents with their children! Though what my mum is doing on the chive, I don’t know…
My Mom sent me this video. It’s very good. You will never guess what it’s for before the end….
Great pictures here sent to me by my mum, of all people. I’ve never been to India but it certainly looks like a fun place!
I had a very nice lunch this afternoon – and I didn’t even have to pay for it! Thanks CB. We had the Black Palace Burgers at the Meat Wagon in Covent Garden. Very tasty they were too. I went on a recommendation from Burger Me. It’s a helluva website and I’ve been to a [...]
It has now been a week since the end of the Jubilee celebrations. A stage and some seating was erected outside Buckingham Palace for a concert. However, riding past again this morning the Mall is still closed to traffic. Now, if they took this long to take down the sets and stage at your average [...]
Is it just me or is anyone else having trouble to get motivated for the European Championships? Usually, I’m excited a month before the tournament and planning where I’ll be watching the games. Sometimes I even consider travelling to visit one! But not this time. I just don’t seem to have same enthusiasm. Speaking [...]
It was a big weekend. Four days of celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. I was all geared up for it, having ridden my bike past Buckingham Palace the previous week while they were building the stage and stands. I had some big plans about BBQs and waving flags on the river like everyone else but [...]
Well nearly…. 1. There was an Irish space program to go to the sun. They went at night so they didn’t get burnt. 2. Paddy is woken in the middle of the night by a phone call. The caller says: ‘Is that Dublin 22 33 22?’ Paddy says,:’No it’s Dublin 223 322!’ The caller apologises [...]
I must be getting old. This made me laugh – a lot! There are loads more here…
I’ve just come back home through Heathrow airport and after being in Asia for two months it pretty much sums up the UK. Unfriendly, inefficient, scruffy and in need of investment. A 12 hour flight back to the UK has felt like a flight two decades into the past after being in the East. I [...]
This made me laugh. I could do with a good laugh today. I shall look for some more.
There really is nothing of interest in the news today, so I though I would tell you about my lunch yesterday! I went to Boom Burger on Leather Lane in Holborn / Farringdon. It’s basically a big burger van but a posh one. I had a grilled chicken burger with chili relish, jalapenos, mayonnaise, lettuce [...]
It’s a slow news day today, so far and I expect that’s why Prince Philip’s 90th birthday is getting a lot of coverage. But in fairness to him, he does have some comedy gold moments. He is the David Brent of the Royal Family with a total disregard for political correctness. I think that’s why [...]
UBS was bailed out in 2008 to the tune of $60 Billion. Thankfully, they have been spending the money wisely with a very important document about staff dress codes. Some of the highlights include: • Your hairstyle must take into consideration the answers to these important questions: – What style best suits a person of [...]
