Problematic

03Aug16

“If it’s got boobs or wheels, it’s going to give you problems…” …Or so the old saying goes. – I’d like to add one more item. Looking through my bank statements, I’ve noticed that yes, my car has had a lot of work done lately and Julie’s birthday is coming up but judging by the amount […]


Twice is Nice

27Feb16

Now that ebooks are so easy to get on my phone, a few months ago, I decided to read all fourteen James Bond books written by Ian Fleming, in the order they were published. Right now I’m up to the 12th one, “You Only Live Twice”. I read a few James Bond books when was […]


This Craic appears in issue 220 of the Liverpool fanzine, Red All Over The Land. I have to admit that when John Pearman, the editor of Red All Over The Land asked me to review a new Beatles book for the fanzine, I was expecting something a bit lighter. I don’t mean the content, I […]


I’ve never got on with Windows computers. If it isn’t the “blue screen of death”, it’s the frozen screen and the “control/alt/delete” (which only fixes it half the time anyway). If I’m not turning it off and back on again, I’m being threatened that “your computer may be a risk”. I don’t even have to […]


Jobs Swap

01Jul14

You’d think a brand new computer bought direct from the manufacturer would be good for at least a couple of years. I got a new desktop computer delivered for my birthday, June 10th. Before June was over, it packed up and they had to replace it. This wasn’t a cheap computer, it was an Apple. […]


Fruit Fly

08Jun14

You’ll be glad to know that my new computer finally arrived. It was only a day late but that’s not the point. They still haven’t been in touch to find out if it was actually delivered or not. They had me fill in an email survey the morning after it was supposed to be here […]


Crab Apple

“Do what you said you would do, when you said you would do it, the way you said you would do it”. That is the number one rule for life and business according to Larry Winget, who describes himself as, ‘The pitbull of personal development’. Larry is right because whenever an individual or organisation doesn’t […]


The toast has popped up but there’s nothing to put it on to butter it this morning. The breadboard has been packed. We’re not moving house for another three days but Julie likes to get ahead of the game. Right now she’s making another run to the tip, her second of the day and all […]


Radio Control

14Jun13

iTunes Radio is coming. I wonder if Siri is doing the phone-in show. Don’t expect any strong opinions or debate from Siri. If someone calls up and says “All politicians are crooks”, Siri is just going to say, “I don’t understand ‘All politicians are crooks’. But I could search the web for it.” My point […]
