Sunglasses Are Optional

Today, this blog reached a huge milestone with 500 of you following little old me. I never envisaged reaching 10 followers, let alone the current figure - so thank you, to each and every one of you. I'm humbled that so many of you have given me a second thought, and clicked that follow button.... Continue Reading →

The Drinking Song

A couple of years ago, I was DJ, producer and general dogsbody of an online radio station that I'd set-up. The station was short-lived, but it did attract a few thousand listeners daily. Sadly, I had to give it all up when Microsoft removed all stations from their Media Player, making it virtually impossible to... Continue Reading →

Cuckoo Councillors

In recent weeks, I've been getting the blame for something I haven't done by a group of local Councillors. And to be honest, I don't care, because their own inner thought processes are messing with their extremely fragile minds. It's not the first time I've been blamed for something by them, and probably not the... Continue Reading →

More Contrast With Black & White

I thought I would share with you a simple technique that I use in Photoshop to enhance my photographs, using black & white. I've also made a Photoshop Action to automate the task, and am offering it for free. You can download it here. I've only tested the action in CS6, and offer no warranty... Continue Reading →

Her Majesty’s Revenue Scam

This morning, I received an automated telephone call from 0161 850 3583 - the call was from fraudsters pretending to be from Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC). The call went like this: This is Her Majestyโ€™s Revenue & Customs. We have been trying to reach you to let you know that we are filing a... Continue Reading →

Vibration Training

A few weeks ago, I purchased a vibration machine and said I would give an update on how I'm progressing with it. The machine I opted for is the Vibrapower Slim 2 (no affiliate link). This type of machine was developed for the Russian Space Programme. Vibration training was created to help cosmonauts stay fit... Continue Reading →

I Don’t Care About Cookies

One of the worst things to come out of the European Union is the Cookie Consent law. You see those annoying pop-up confirmation boxes everywhere. I even have one on this website. I hate them, and I expect you do too. Since 2011, all websites in the European Union have been required by law to... Continue Reading →


I haven't done much, by way of exercise, over the past week due to contracting a cold. I've had headaches and a sore throat, along with a slight sniffle, which combined have been more of an annoyance more than anything, but have seemingly knocked me out of my stride with the jogging. I don't suffer... Continue Reading →

My Saggy Bum Has Gone

In the few weeks that I've been running, I've noticed my body has begun to change. For the better, I must add. Most middle aged men will notice that over time, they seem to lose all the filling from their bum, and it becomes flat and saggy. Mine is starting to fill out, with my... Continue Reading →

Lung Training

Just like the 334 million people worldwide that have Asthma, I struggle to function at times. Asthma is a respiratory condition marked by attacks of spasm in the bronchi of the lungs, causing difficulty in breathing. It is usually connected to allergic reaction or other forms of hypersensitivity. These reactions cause the airways to become... Continue Reading →

Checking My BMI

The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement that uses your height and weight to work out if your weight is healthy. I've been checking my BMI with a couple of tools on the web, and have found most are in the region of that quoted by the NHS. For most adults, an ideal BMI... Continue Reading →

A Knife To The Back

I'm having to take a few days off jogging after enduring searing pain in my upper back. I'm quite used to individuals stabbing me there, but the pain this time was on a different level. The pain has been focused beneath my right shoulder blade. At first, I thought it might have been a stitch,... Continue Reading →
