Fun things to do on a short break in the Lake District

I recently took a trip up to the Lake District – something I don’t get to do anywhere near as often as I’d like – and based on my own activities on the trip, what follows is a list of fun things other people can enjoy doing while up there.

Silly, repetitive addresses FTW!

I said ‘@’ there, not ‘at’. Not there, no, that’s definitely ‘at’ – and so’s that bit. If you ask me for my email address, what I’ll give you in response depends on the context. If that context is that we’re chatting in a pub (so there has been some drinking) and perhaps you want […]

Eurovision 2017 – as seen through cider-specs!

Until 2014, the Eurovision Song Contest wasn’t something I was inclined to watch, other than checking in towards the very end to see how the UK was doing. However, in 2014 I happened to be at a loose end on the evening the contest took place, so I decided to watch it, and comment on […]

How to improve the game of football

With that in mind, I decided it would be a good idea to resurrect something I wrote about two years ago – this tournament thingummy makes it […]

General Election 2010 and the Pound

The outcome of the 2010 general election, a hung parliament, had an understandable effect on the value of Sterling. The negotiations between the Liberal Democrat party and Labour and Conservative parties is also having an effect. The latest news I read before choosing to type this is that theĀ  talks between the Liberal Democrats and […]

General Election 2010: Hung Parliament

On the morning of 7th May 2010 we can see that the result of yesterday’s general election in the UK is a hung parliament, with no individual party gaining an overall majority of seats. What does this mean? Well, as a fully paid up (as in taxes) member of the British public, I’ll tell you […]
