Naming

Tomorrow is Connor's naming ceremony and this weekend has pretty much revolved around the preparations. I've spent today organising barbecues, putting up gazebos and generally preparing my Mum & Dad's new house for the 100 or so people that are...

MMS From Sharon

"Hello Daddy. Today I have been pole dancing. Hope your lunch meeting went ok. We are in the park at castle ring. Love you x James."...

Google's just plain weird

Sorry to go on about this, but Google, once the backbone of my internet life, has gone awry. Once again I'm nowhere to be found in the search results for "I Hate Google". Jeremy Zawodny found he had constantly changing...

Where are my missing socks?

So, if you're looking for something these days, where do you look? Why Google or AlltheWeb of course! So: 1) Where are my socks? - The scientific approach to solving the mystery. 2) Where are my Socks? - A lifestyle...

It's the borrowers....

My house eats socks. I now own 3 pairs of socks and approximately 50 odd socks, enough to fill a small crate. There's nothing unusual about that, it happens to everyone. 80s observational humour would have been lost without the...

We're back on top!

Arseburgers is back on top however you say it. Don't get me wrong. I have no particular desire to be the top search result for this phrase. There's even the small possibility that it could attract the sort of attention...

Sledge Hammer

Anyone else remember the old spoof cop series Sledge Hammer? Sharon and I used to watch it when we first started going out (15 years ago) and we have spent the entire night discussing it, racking our brains trying to...

So much to say and so little time.

The unfortunate side effect of having a lot to say is that, unless you have the time to say it, you tend to say very little. So, in order to say at least something; It seems that I have returned...

The rise and fall....

And suddenly I don't even appear in the results at all. I thought part of the ethos behind Google was supposed to be consistency to its results. Ho-hum....

Typical

Why is it things always happen when my back's turned, when my attention is elsewhere? How often do I hear "Dude, you should have seen....." or "Quick, quick... no; you missed it". And so it is with this site. The...

What I did on my holidays....

My holiday revolved around one of the main themes from this song. Given that it was a family holiday, you guess which. I had a superb time. But now I'm knackered. I'll see you tomorrow....

Ooops.....

Mental note to self...... If you're away for more than 7 days, remember to change the number of entries displayed. Otherwise, by the time you return your site'll be showing nothing on the front page. Now that you're back, as...

Ooooooh, I do like to be beside the seaside.....

There are times when I'm glad I'm a bloke. It imbues you with certain magical powers. Like the ability to pack for a 6 day holiday in less than half an hour and take up less that half a suitcase....

Balearic Break

On Friday we're off on holiday for a week so it'll be a little quiet round here, unless I find an internet cafe. We're going to southern Ibiza and, at the moment, I can't wait. I know it going to...

Die.... please.

Broadband has changed completely the way I use the internet. I don't game, I don't download huge amounts of freeware. I don't search out warez or download MP3s. The internet has slowly, casually become a part of my life. As...

A better life through HTML

Boy can I relate to this guy at the moment....

Fueled by Testosterone

There has only ever been one TV programme about cars in general that was worth watching, BBC's Top Gear. Several years ago it was unfortunately badly neutered by the complaints it attracted every-time it seemed to glamorise speed or advocate...

Tired

Connor has a cold at the moment and he's teething, which is making for a broken nights sleep. Somehow he manages to sleep deeply from 7pm when he's put to bed until just 15 minutes after Sharon and I go...

Que?

As funny as this is, I guess it'd be funnier if you understood German (or Dutch or whatever it is)....

Make a noise in peace time.

Forget turning swords into ploughshares, turn a rifle into an MP3 player. Now there's a fashion accessory! I can't quite see you carrying down the high street without getting arrested though....

Caffeine shock therapy

I know I'm about 2 weeks behind everyone else, but Caffeinated Soap seems like such a good idea. Now, I wonder if anyone in the UK sells it?...

Too cute to fly....

Is it just me, or is there precious little on the net worth posting about at the moment? Maybe I've just had an extermely low boredom threshold recently. Oh well, keep yourself entertained for a few minutes by pretending to...

...

I have nothing really to add today. It's been a strange kind of day. Its sheer normality has seemed completely out of sorts. There was no solemn Bugle Call Retreat, no mass silence. There was no let up at work...

In memoriam

Tomorrow, 8 May, is the 7th anniversary of the death of my first wife, Karen Taylor (nee Daniels). We were married for just 3 weeks having married on 19 April 1996 before the brain tumour that had left her paralysed...

Today I have...

...been mostly stressed to buggery. No particular reason. At work we account for our time on timesheets so that the office manager can calculate how much to bill our clients. To date we have used weekly timesheets and I have...

Sometimes, I hate Google

Still no PageRank (tm) for this site. Although I do get the occasional hit from a Google search result. And don't even get me started on the DMOZ directory....... UPDATE: For those who have visited from a Google or other...

He said what?

I generally hate extracts from people's MSN or IRC conversations. Even those that are supposed to be amusing are generally only so to those who participated or their close mates. Bash.org is a good database of funny quotes from IM...

Long Weekend

Make that a looooong weekend. (Warning: Boring personal shite ahead)..........
