Sleeping With The Enemy

Do you stare at your smartphone in bed before you finally drift off to sleep? I too, am guilty as charged Your Honour! Now blue light is affecting our brains and wellbeing in multiple ways and as this is a recent phenomenon, research continues but the signs are not good. Therefore after many years of […]

Identity Crisis

Spotted this Saturday afternoon while in The Peel Centre car park. This proud badge was on a car, (a lime Focus Fusion I believe) owned by a middle aged couple. Probably what you expect to see in the light of Brexit and the whipped up nationalist feelings which are being harnessed across not just our country […]

Clarkson Parking

Car proud. Is that a thing? It must be, because house proud is a thing! Back in late July 2013, a few days after starting at my new (and I would like to add happily current) employer somebody scratched my car door. This was not a minor misdemeanour. They had scrapped paintwork clear off my […]

Streaming Paradise

It is my nature. I like to hoard. Having mp3 (or more recently FLAC) files stored on my server, laptop and mp3 player fills me with self satisfied contentment. Now, no matter what happens to the CD in the car, the mp3 player in my laptop rucksack or (God forbid) my laptop, there will always […]

Put some money in your bank account. The bank will use that money to invest in enterprise and earn you interest on the money you saved. […]

We can always look at things and wonder what could have been. I do this […]

King Of The Road

For many years I was a devout fan of the trusted TomTom. Just remember this was in the late 1990s when SatNav was a completely new product range and smartphones did not truly exist in their current form. When I went over to Germany for our lads weekend to the Nurburgring, we spent a good […]

Loose Change

While I expect nothing less from my peers, I do expect a Vice President to conduct themselves more becoming of their seniority within the organisation. To view all the other office pranks I have been subjected to in my relative short career, they are all tagged with office prank. The dossier for HR grows larger with […]
