Oh dear, we're having a world cup themed day at work today. How depressing…….. |-)

Politicians

I've signed up to theyworkforyou.com so I can see what our local MP is saying in Parliament. I've met our MP, Paul Farrelly, on a couple of occasions (he even took our Scouts round Parliament once) and he seems to be quite a pleasant chap. He seems to be interested in promoting our area and […]

Last night’s AGM

Wow, what can I say? I was wrong (see here) ! We actually had some parents turn up! Actually, it was a good evening and the Cubs and Beavers really enjoyed playing football and the fact they got a medal as well! See the Scout Group link for more…….. 😉

Etruria

Been meaning to mention this for a week or so. I drove past Etruria station the other day and noticed that all the station furniture had been removed – the shelters, station names, lamp posts etc. Now one of the reasons Etruria was closed was that it could be removed to re-align the tracks so […]

Ignorant G***s

Had the builders in the yard again this morning. At least they knocked on the door to say they were finishing off thier work. Mr. Next Door still didn't bother to ask. He even had the cheek to come into our yard to speak to the builders! Really should have said NO………..! :-@

Essex is in the North!!!

We had a card posted through the door yesterday. The name on it wasn't us, but the first line of the address was the same as ours. The rest of the address was for a place in Essex! Now apart from the fact that Essex is about 200 miles away, how did the people who […]

A.G.M.s

Next week is our Scout Group’s A.G.M. Now trying to get parents to come is like getting blood from a stone! It’ll be interesting to see how many actually appear – bet I can count the number on the fingers of one hand!

Firefox

I've been playing with some extensions that can be added to Firefox. Makes you wonder why you ever used IE! Can't same I'm too sure about IE7 at the moment, so I think I'll stick to Firefox (Opera is good as well!). The extensions do make life easier at work!

Teachers and Education

Last week I finished off a lesson I'd started a couple of weeks before with a Y5/6 class from one of our local primary schools. This was to design a web page using MS FrontPage. Now everything went well (even though I do say so myself!) and the kids did some good work. Now I'm […]

Excuse me?????

Carol came into the kitchen this morning to tell me that there were workmen in our back yard! So I went out and asked if I could help them. They were there to do work on an adjoining wall between us and next door. Seems they have some damp. The bloke I spoke to asked […]

Fridges

Oh we had fun last week. We decided that our fridge was on too much, so it was time to buy a much more energy efficient one. So off we went, found one we liked, bought it and got it home. We waited for 4 hours for it to settle down, turned it on, on […]

Cooler weather and a happier techie!

Phew, it's much better at work today with the weather being a bit cooler, it's only 26°C in my office today! That's compared to 31°C on Monday! That's only 5° difference but that's a lot.  Even with the window open and the fan on it was stifling on Monday. Must have been something to do […]

Flags

Due to the nature and quality of driving in England, the DOT has devised a new scheme in order that good drivers may identify poor drivers. For this reason, from the 01 June 2006, drivers who are found to be driving badly, inconsiderately or both, will be issued with flags (white with a red cross). […]
