Is working in an office REAL work? I had this thought while I was watching the latest season of “Better Call Saul”. Bob Odenkirk’s character, Jimmy, is ordered to do community service. The work he’s given is to pick up litter under a highway overpass. I realised that for some people, that kind of work […]

Apple are starting to confuse me now. The new iPhone is out, actually there are two new ones. The iPhone 8 replaces the iPhone 7. They’ve also released the iPhone 10 (X). They’ve skipped 9 completely. Each new Apple phone has more features than the last but they’re also taking things away. The iPhone 7, […]

The Wet Office

It’s bad enough that we haven’t had a summer but why can’t the Met Office get it right? Right now, it’s pouring down in the South East of England. It’s on days like these every year that I go back and look at the forecast that the Met Office issued three months ago, promising us […]

Of course if Tom Cruise wants to take on a REALLY impossible mission, he should try explaining the plots of the last five […]


A little piece of Britain is going to die. There’s hardly anything more British than little red payphone boxes. This week British Telecom announced that they’re going to scrap 20,000 payphones and thousands of those are in red phone boxes. The traditional red phone boxes became an endangered species way before everyone had mobile phones. […]

The anti-car people are going to have to find a new reason to hate cars. For years they’ve been banging on about how bad cars are for the environment. They’ve been blaming the cars and their drivers but the truth is it’s not the cars that are dirty, it’s the fuel. I’ve been saying this […]
