I recently passed on a piece of knowledge that I was given by a previous boss. I was a young eager thing with no real mind of what I was doing. I would throw a document together and punt it out to the world without so much as a second thought, not advisable when you…

Title a blog OK not really but I do like this one: Positively Mental. Not sure about all the pink, but that’s because I’m a boy I think and prefer blue of course, but well put together, cleanly designed and, most of all, well written. Definitely to be added to my daily(ish) list of visits.

Or why “I like to be in America” Reason #14: NBA. I’ve mentioned this before I’m sure, but I REALLY miss my NBA since it moved to Sky Sports Extra here in the UK. As a Telewest customer I can’t get the channel at all. The time I spent in San Francisco was great, I…

No it’s not. And David Blaine doesn’t claim otherwise. However the amount of attention that has been lavished on him for this stunt is slightly baffling. Similar stunts were popular in the 20s, and the saint San Simeon’s time living on a pillar, is well documented. But why the hype now? Are we really that…

Isn’t it funny how memories can become distorted. I won’t be watching this weekends Eurovision Song Contest, mainly because I don’t enjoy the music and let’s face facts; it’s never really been the same since “Save your kisses for me”. However, I had forgotten what it used to be like.
