We went to London for a few days over half term. Apart from the fact that it was full of kids (surprise….), I'd forgotten how rude, ignorant and generally up themselves the general population of London are (there are exceptions, my family (!) and their neighbours among them).
People try to charge on a Tube train before people have got off, look really upset if someone has to sit by them and are generally only concerned about themselves. No one else matters really!
One thing that made me want to laugh and scream at the same time was when I took my uncle and aunt to the railway station (that's RAILWAY and NOT TRAIN station!), I was turning round to come back on myself at a roundabout, with indicators flashing and got hooted by some smug git in an Jaguar! Now I had right of way, was doing the right things, but his inconvenience was my fault!
London is a nice place to visit, but it's nice to be home.

I Hate Computers!

Which is a bit silly really as they’re my job!

Last week I had a hard drive failure on my main machine at work. For various reasons this took me nearly two days to fix. Then the new Mac notebook we’ve recently had keeps turning itself off for no reason and now I’ve just installed the security software on my nice new spangly laptop and that’s killed it totally!

For some reason (not complaining though), the Senticomic published my press release about us needing leaders for the Scout Group again. They did manage to mangle it again!

Total number of phone calls ZERO, none, nothing! So thanks people of North Staffordshire, that confirms what I've thought for a while, no-one cares about anything but themselves! 


We went Blackpool yesterday to see the lights. I'd forgotten what a dump it is! It's filled with people whose idea of a good time is getting as pissed as possible as quick as possible. In fact the only things its got going for it are the Illuminations and the trams! Trouble is the tram system needs loads of money throwing at it.
To be fair, the promenade is having a lot of work done to it to make it look nicer and also to help with sea defences. It will look good once it is done. All they have to do is start rebuilding on the other side of the road!
