Blog

Category: Travel | c: | m:

Y'know things that are all the rage? Blogs. Everyone has one; or at least had one before Facebook, Twitter et al diluted the realtime pool.

Since I'm nu-old skool — and watching endless streams of people copying and pasting the same thing to each other has me reaching for the Glock — I figured why not make a blog? The main difference here compared with other people's blogs is that instead of being limited to one topic, you get a little slice of everything all mashed up. Yay, I've joined the SpaceFace / MyBook revolution.

  • Security without atoms

    Ambiguous signage is a pet love of mine. Saving a few bucks to print less is fine, unless the meaning can be misinterpreted.

  • Map musings

    My old map book is falling to bits, but I have a suspicion I soon won’t be able to buy a replacement. No, I don’t have sat-nav. There’s a jolly good reason for that.

  • How now brown Slough

    · 155 words (wastes less than a minute)

    I think I may be the first person in history to write something positive about this bizarre industrial town. Well, almost.

  • Camping, 1970s stylie

    · 368 words (wastes about 2 mins)

    Over forty years after the 70s surfed in, some bottle green things made of metal and rubber are still trundling along.

  • A question of breakdown

    · 667 words (wastes about 3 mins)

    You know that sinking feeling you get when a warning light comes on in the car and it won’t drive properly. Fat, saggy, pants.

  • Airport security, we love you

    · 332 words (sucks up about 2 mins)

    I pity people coming through the UK’s so-called security system. It’s nonsensical, farcical, and utterly corruptible. And that’s its good points.

  • Time o' the signs

    Stop! Give Way! 30! Slow Down! Warning! Speed Cameras! Don’t do that! Think Bike! Pay attention! Arrrrrrrghhhhh too muuuuch!

  • Snow smarts

    An automatic car is a nightmare in the snow. An automatic car that thinks it knows best is worse still. Remind me again why I took the smart car out.
