As many of you may know, I am something of a Marmite addict. If you don’t know what Marmite is there are plenty of references on the Internet and if you are an Antipodean who is already looking for the comment box so you can tell me that Vegemite is better than Marmite then don’t, […]

Let’s Face it…


I was going to be nice to Google today. Really, I was – I started out thinking “Wow, for the first time ever, I will have to write a weblog entry and be 100% nice about Google” – As the 5 people who read my weblog will know, this isn’t normal. I don’t like Google, […]

One of my favourite new weblogs is Crabby Old Fart, – On his front page he states: “It’s Important to be Regular… Now posting once a week whether I have something to say or not.” This got me thinking that I haven’t written anything in here for nearly a year and it may be […]

I am not sure I can deal with the idea of Suggs being the new Captain Birds Eye.

Apparently this posting (and I guess a few of my others) are unreadable in Internet Explorer. I am afraid there’s not much I can do about this. Sorry. For a long time, a few people have been reminding me that I promised to write a posting about the top ten ways I have nearly killed […]

No comments

It’s been about a week and I have already given up watching UK’s Big Brother.
