For various reasons, I am in a reflective mood and I finally have a few weeks in which to relax. This creates its own problems in that when I have time to relax, I have time to think and when I have time to think, that’s usually not a good thing. As a means of […]

Men need sheds as much as they need air, water and Marmite – It’s as simple as that. A shed gives men independence, freedom, […]

Prometheus’s lesser known little brother stole butter and a frying pan from the Gods. His monumentous achievement was overshadowed by the cheek and audacity of his older sibling’s theft but none the less, was a major milestone in the relationship between man and his Deities.

Apparently, in the spirit of protecting us from a new generation of communicable diseases; O2 have started giving away condoms. I am not sure I think too much of the jokes, but it’s a nice touch.
