Darn it’s Windy!
Why is the weather so rubbish? Not only have we had loads of rain but loads of wind too! I wouldn’t mind too much but my passenger side car door leaks when the wind and rain are blowing in a certain direction… on Monday I had to scoop out about half an inch of water from the passenger foot-well… Anyone want to buy me a new car?

Bradford – Town of Lies
Place names are usually fairly descriptive, for example Hill Top Road is a road at the top of a hill; Hill Top Fisheries is a Chippy at the top of a hill; Little John’s Kebab Hut is a kebab hut owned by a man called John who happens to be vertically challenged. So, from that, what would you expect Four Lane Ends and Five Lane Ends to be? Logically it […]
The Promised Pictures
Well, here they are, the promised photo’s of our local Harrier Jumpjet! Shoetree and his lovely lady-wife came over yesterday so I took them for a drive to see the plane too 🙂 Well, here they are, the promised photo’s of our local Harrier Jumpjet!

We were driving up to Queensbury yesterday along the Brighouse & Denholme Road and I happened to look out of the window. TO my surprise, there was a Harrier JumpJet in someone’s garden. Not a toy, an actual real Harrier JumpJet! To confirm I wasn’t going mad, we stopped on the way back to make sure… And it was still there – a real, full-size, not a toy, Royal Navy […]
Pig (Part II)
OK, even if the whole ‘eating a full pack of mini batenburgs‘ thing wasn’t piggish behaviour then I think this might be: Today we were in Morrisons and I noticed that Creme Eggs we only 18p – a whole 2p cheaper than in Woolworths just over the car park! I had to by five. It would have been wrong not to! I ate four of them, it would have been […]
Walk, Fly, Fly, Fly, Drive, Sleep
Yesterday was our last day at CeBIT and involved, as the blog entry title suggests, walking, flying, flying, flying and eventually sleeping. After our final bit of reporting in the morning we got our stuff and waited for our taxi to start us off on our trip back to the UK. It was only a short taxi ride though as instead of getting the 40 minute taxi to the airport […]
Make Your Segway
Well, CeBIT is great so far. I’ve got a bit of spare time in the press office so after writing my reviews thought I’d show off by posting this picture of me on a Segway! One thing that has annoyed me though is Google and Blogger picking up on the fact I have a German IP address and trying to be ‘helpful’ by making all the text German… Grr… Luckily […]
How Do The Canadians Do It?
Why does Britain come to a total standstill when there’s the slightest bit of snow?! However, the really annoying thing is that, with working from home, I can no longer phone up and say “My bus hasn’t turned up because of the snow so I won’t be in work today”. MaFt **********http://maft.co.uk/blog
Enough To Drive You Mental!
Yesterday, wherever I drove I seemed to get stuck behind either a learner doing 20mph in a 40 zone or a bus that wanted to pull up every 100m at some imaginary bus stop. Why people don’t give me priority on the road I have no idea… Hopefully today will be better as there’s no school traffic to get caught up in! MaFt **********http://maft.co.uk/blog
