Oh to be a Labour Minister…….

The Government seems to be in an even bigger mess at the moment than usual. What with Mr. Clarke, the Home Secretary, losing those ex prisoners that should have been deported, the Health Secretary, Miss Hewitt, is patronising everyone even more than usual by saying the NHS is actually in a really good way (try […]

Good Day @ Work

Well, after yesterday's boredom, today was a good, busy one! Yesterday, I had my science technician's head on. But as most of the work the kids are doing is revision, there wasn't anything to do, hence the bordom. Where as today, I set up a couple of printers on print servers, did some forms and […]

Elections are Coming

Is that extra day's opening going to make a huge difference to their profits? Is the fact that they can open for […]

Pleasant afternoon

Today, well this afternoon specifically, has been quite fun. I’ve installed Xandros linux on my second PC so it now dual boots with Windows 2000 and Dad came round to try out some of his new engines on my layout. We haven’t done that for yonks. Add that to the fact that I’ve brought a […]

Honours

With all this talk in the press about cash for honours, it really annoys me that people can think that by giving oodles of money, directly or indirectly, to a political party, that they can get an honour. What, other than being rich, have they done to deserve it? My Dad was awarded an MBE […]

1st one!

Oh well, here we go on my first blog! It’s 23.30, I’ve just had a bath, I’m listening to Mark Radcliffe on the radio (just like I used to do over 11 years ago!) and I’ve got my model trains out in front of me. May as well get any credibility out of the way […]
