Obviously I am far too old to be listening to BBC Radio 1, but my dearest wife insists on listening to the public service broadcaster in her car. Perhaps as the DJs are so many years younger than me, I have little in common with them and their discussions but on the drive home this […]
A year after Superman Returns was released, Will Smith starred in the film I Am Legend. (I caught this horror movie at my local multiplex, the Empire back on 29th December 2007) While the film was good, difficult to achieve when your costars are all zombies and your closest companion is of the feline variety, […]
Have you been watching The People v OJ Simpson – American Crime Story? We have been watching via iPlayer (as we tend to go to bed early most school nights.) They have been planning this series for a while, I recall seeing sneak photographs of David Schwimmer, playing the late Robert Kardashian. The trial fascinated […]

With now only hours remaining of 2015 time to give you access to the Jet Pack Annual Report.
On the first day of my holidays, we were driving down the Bath Road and I spotted a bright white Seat Ibiza ahead of us with an interesting badge. I very much doubt this vehicle was packing a Nitrous Oxide system but then again, this is Slough. Anything is possible!
